Kentucky's May Day exercises are

It is expected that the various

Alumni Assn.


J. A. VonderHaar



It was announced in the last issue
of The Kernel that the annual meeting of the Alumni Association will be
held this year on Saturday, May 28.
An interesting program is in the pro- "

cess of formation and things have
been planned that will find favor with
all those who attend the meeting.
An effort is being made this year
to get a larger number of Alumni
back to the campus than in years
pro-- .
gone by. The commencement
gram ties in so conveniently with the
annual meeting that three most enjoyable days can be spent in Lexington. The program is being sd arranged that there will be a minimum of
group meetings.
With the exception of the business meeting which
will be held Saturday morning and
, which probably will be followed by a
group luncheon at which the Senior
class will be welcomed into the association, the most of the time will
be left with the Alumni to do with
as they will most enjoy.
Those of you graduates and former
students who have not been back to
the campus for several years will be
most agreeably surprised at the progress that has been made. Coming
back at the last of May and the first
of June when the campus is its lovliest you will marvel at the way the
campus has been improved in a very
short time. Even those of you who
have been here in recent years will
see many changes for the better.
University of Kentucky Alumni
are loyal and hold an even greater
love for their Alma Mater than most
other universities and there is no reason why we cannot have just as many,
if not more, back home at this time
of times in the university and col
lege year.
A warm and hearty welcome will
await you.


Within the next few days each
active Alumni of the University of
Kentucky will receive a ballot bear-- ,
ing the names of the men and women
who have been nominated to guide
the destiny of your Association for
another year. The committee which
was named to prepare two sets of
nominees have done what they con
sider the best thing for the Association and have placed on this ballot the
names of men and women whom they
deem capable and interested enough to
work for the ultimate benefit of the
Association and the University !of
Each of you is interested in the
Association and have evidenced your
interest by the fact that you have
been a member of the Association for
the past year and many of you for
years in the past. You have the in

and are anxious to see her forge
ahead as anything pertaining to
Kentucky should do.

that one or the other

It is your daty to the Association to
voice this preference by vpting for the

promptly. Ballots received after May

grow into a university. They wanted
an agricultural college pure and sim

shops attached. They wanted no mechanical arts which might develop into technical schools, no scientific
studies other than the most meager
outlines of agricultural botany and
other subjects directly related to
farming. For the maintenance of an
agricultural college, the agriculturists
thought that the annual income from
the congressional land script fund was
More would only seduce
the management of the college to establish courses of study for liberal
education, and for this the denominational college already existing could
supply all that the sta,te required.
This unreasoning, obstinate hostility
was even more difficult to overcome
than the opposition of the colleges.
Clardy and Green and Bird and Logan
and Hanna were not men to be readily
convinced by argument nor won over
by diplomatic tact. A propaganda of
more than twenty years was required
for an acquiescent support of state
aid for scientific agriculture.
fruits of this missionary work you
witness today. Where formerly they
bitterly opposed the appropriation of
hundreds, they now readily vote
thousands, for instruction in agriculture, and where, with difficulty, we
could get a dozen or a score 6f stu- dents in agriculture, the college of agriculture now vies with all the others
in the number of its matriculates.
Dozens and scores of the leaders
lived to repent the part which they
had taken and to congratulate the
college on the success which it had,
under providence, achieved.
The late Ho. Cassius M. Clay was

This accomplished, all else logically
But though the battle was
won, the fruits of victory were not
easily retained. In every General
Assembly from 1883 to 1890, opposi
tion to the continuance of the tax ex
isted and motions to repeal were in
troduced, committees of investigation
were appointed. The college was har
rassed and annoyed and required to
show its passports at every turn.
I cannot enumerate the names of
the staunch adherents who stood by
the issue during its struggle for existence. A few, however, might be
note: Richard A. Spurr, senator from
Fayette county; James H. Mulligan,
representative of the City of Lexing
ton; W. C. Owens, of Scott county;
Offutt of Bourbon; Thomas G. Stew
art and Rhodney Haggard of Win
chester; Captain James A. Hindman,
of Adair; Lieutenant-GovernMrs. Cantrill; Governor Blackburn;
Godfrey Hunter, of Burkesville;
