Through the years, Memorial Hall has become the symbol of the Universityno publication would be complete without it.      Only a small percentage of students found time to enjoy snowballing and snowman-building, as the big snows seemed to fall during vacations and final exam week.
A typical scene at Christmas  a fraternity party for under-priviledged and orphan children, complete with gifts and Santa.
   These pages mark but another year in the history of the University .   . . its campus, its surroundings, its activities.
The mud-filled streets, the Brothers Four, the burning of Neville Hall, a newly-organized Student Congress, the gang war scare, Tedd Browne, the expanded television instruction program, President Kennedy, the Medical Center, preregistra-tion, delayed graduation . . . and rush, Joni James, many other names, countless events . . . all are to be remembered.
In the following sections, these events will be expanded and enumerated . . . with the hope of recalling memories of personal events and situations to the individual.

In addition to the many activities of the week, a physical examination is required of freshmen. But somethis fellow includedenjoy the Welcome Week events.
During a week of becoming acquainted with the campus and its operations, new students discover their personal guides in-dispensible.
 Although the majority of incoming students' time is prearranged, people still find time to chat informally.
Preregistration . . .
Preregistration ... a cause of uncertainty. This new system of obtaining class schedules now being used completely by the University, is slowly becoming operational. Still students and faculty alike are not sure of enrollment in all classes until several weeks after the semester begins.
Second semester proved more systematic than the nerve-shattering fall term, and campus members expressed that perhaps the new registration would someday have fewer flaws than previous systems.
After tuition and fees are paid, students invariably find books remaining to dwindle their monetary funds.
. . . slowly becoming systematic.
Registration ... a time of weary wait. Twice freshmen remained in the coliseum until 7 p.m. for completed schedules.  Fraternity rushees enjoy casual conversation as a rush party.
. . . delayed, but successful.
Rush created controversy this fall . . . many voiced dislike for the delayed fraternity rush plan, saying it would cause the downfall of the Greek system. But everyone was quite satisfied when the number pledged showed a great increase this year, with decreased de-pledging. Sororities, going to great extents for costume parties and parades, seem always to have more spectacular programs, although fraternities did sponsor some nice rparties for rushees and dates the second semester.
The last steppledging . . . only the parad

Wonder if she ever found out it was only play money
Like most campus affairs, rush involves the familiar hurry-up-and-wait process.

As usual, Homecoming featured rain, giving outside displays that wilted look. Scores of umbrellas were in evidence at the game, and muddy players covered the sloshy field. But the Wildcats defeated the Commodores, the queen was crowned, and the band played on.
Stoll Field once again relaxed, and the Kernel begged students not to be litter bugs.

Dream becomes relization as a student designs and creates.
Much of the student's time in college is spent at books which demand the mundane and technical. The fine arts offer the student release, relief, or a break in the dull and demanding. Many find ways of expressing themselves on paper or canvas, with knife in wood, or hands in clay, or by dancing to music. Art exhibits give an opportunity to see what has been read or heard. Picasso, Braque . . . pointalism, collage. Klee paints Venus. Law professor paints four-legged grasshopper. Racz with woodcuts . . . students are required to analyze works, copy style.

The greatest sorrow was expressed by those graduate students who saw years of their own research go up in flames.
Firemen fought a courageous, but losing battle as age-old Neville Hall burned to the ground in less than two hours.
. . . Neville Hall destroyed
Fire ... a meaningful word at the University this year. Neville Hall was destroyed, as was a dormitory room in Jewell Hall. The starting of fires in several other campus buildings was attempted, but prevented before any serious damage occurred.

47  Changes...
The coffee houses enjoyed a brief moment of popularity, but are now no longer. However, the beat influence is still apparent.
Increased popularity of the Marching 100 football halftime shows may have been because of the addition of majorettes to the lineup.
Numerous changes occurred this season, some welcome, some dreaded. Accompanying the Marching 100 were the Kentucky Babes, UK's new majorettes. The trio received both approval and disapproval . . . some felt the band needed no trimmings . . . most enjoyed the additional secenery. Knee-ticklers and culottes replaced longer skirts on many coeds . . . some commented on the return of the younger generation. Lances Carnival, long remembered as a feature of UK's social year, was discontinued last year, and replaced by a concert and dance this fall. Eighty coeds inhabited Bowman Hall for a semester . . . Dr. Skiles and the Ancient Languages Department moved to Funkhouser Building . . .

William R. Willard Vice President Medical Center
The University's new $27,000,000 Medical Center became a reality this fall with the beginning of their first class in the College of Medicine and the College of Nursing. However, completion of the entire 39-acre Medical Center isn't expected until the fall of 1961.
The College of Medicine was established at the University by the Board of Trustees in 1954, with authorization for it to be started as soon as the State Legislature provided necessary funds.
In 1956, a resolution was adopted which specified that the Medical Center would include a College of Medicine, College of Dentistry, College of Nursing, and a University Teaching Hospital.
In addition to the Colleges, the Center includes a library, offices, research space, student unit laboratories, and individual study cubicles. All of this is housed in the Medical Sciences Building. In addition, there will be a 400-bed teaching hospital plus a 100-bed ambulatory section and living quarters for ambulatory patients, an outpatient clinic, and a power plant and laundry.
Small laboratories throughout the building provide a close student-faculty relationship. In general, the student stays in the same lab for all lab classes and the professor moves from lab to lab to instruct.
The academic program and physical plant of the Center incorportes both the latest thinking and the time proven concepts of medical education. The experiences and ideas of medical educators and physicians from all parts of the nation have been utilized.
Postgraduate education will be another of the Center's contributions. Courses, conferences, and institutes will be available to doctors, dentists, nurses, and other professional personnel in the health field of Kentucky.
There were 40 students in the first College of Medicine class; the first Nursing class numbered 30. Over 80 percent of these are Kentucky residents.
President Emeritus Herman L. Donovan listens intently to the dedication remarks of Governor Combs.

Agriculture and Home Economics

70 This little sheep will soon go to market and loose all its wool.
Students in the College of Agriculture and Home Economics learn fundamental principles which underlie the many activities of farm and home. The College continually strives to provide the kind of general and professional education its graduates will need to meet the challenges of our rapidly changing society.
After a recent apprasial of its curricula in Agriculture, the College set up a curriculum in three broad areas of service: scientific and technical agriculture; "agribusiness", or training for business related to agriculture; and general agriculture. In Home Economics, the College provides a liberal education and understanding of the broad aspects of home economics and technical training for education, business, public service, and research.
Since the role of hand labor in agriculture is decreasing and the need for managerial ability and mechanical skills are increasing, the College feels that adequate education for farm people is increasingly significant.
The College's graduates are accepted whenever there is need for persons trained in agriculture and home economics, and they are in demand in industry, business, and various lines of institutional and governmental work.
Contrary to popular belief, home economics is not all cooking, making clothes, and keeping house.
71 College of Arts and Sciences
The aim of the College of Arts and Sciences is to educate the student in broad fields of interest as well as in one special field, with emphasis on the building of a well-rounded, useful life. It strives to provide the opportunity to each individual to acquire the knowledge and understanding necessary for him to contribute his share of leadership to the advancement of society, limited only by his ability.
The College of Arts and Sciences is the oldest and largest of the University colleges, and includes twenty-eight departments and two schools.
Martin M. White, Dean
Primates are, most assuredly, the main topic of discussion here.
72  College of Commerce
Since 1925, the University has maintained a College of Commerce providing training for business and public careers. In the college, the fields of economics and business are emphasized.
Because of the growth of knowledge in the fields of accounting, economics, finance, marketing, statistics, management, and business law, the courses have become more comprehensive in philosophical content and less descriptive in treatment of business processes and institutions.
The student who completes the Commerce program may become a professional accountant; he may continue research and study in economics; or he may be employed by a large corporation as a trainee in administrative management.
In recent years the College of Commerce enrolls abuot 1000 undergraduates per semester and issues about 300 degrees each year.

Learning shorthand is but one of the many phases of a commerce education. College of Education
Today, more young Americans are attending school than ever before, and likewise demand for more and better qualified teachers is ever increasing. In an effort to meet this demand and provide a sufficient number of qualified teachers, emphasis has been placed on Special Education as well as mathmatics, science, and foreign languages.
Also, a new program of Counseling and Guidance, beginning with the Master's degree and inclu
