At It Again!
Careful to avoid any possibility
of committing a freshman blunder,
one of the new girls learned where
all the buildings are located. She
didn't ask any questions, she tried
to follow all the rules.
And most of all she was careful
to step off the walks to let the soldiers march by.
The other day, for instance, it
had been one of those "off again,
on again" walks across the campus.
She turned as she neared her destination and saw the Inevitable
four feet bearing down on her.
Off she stepped. And the soldiers
marched by both of them.

The auditorium-fiel- d
house to be
built by the University after the
war was described Tuesday by
President Herman L. Donovan as a
memorial to Kentucky's dead in
World War II. Dr. Donovan pointed out that Memorial hall, which
was dedicated to those who lost
their lives in the last war, had been
a source of pleasure and inspiration to the students but that the
University had already outgrown
the building.
auditorium-fiel- d
house, he stated, would be a million dollar structure capable of
seating around 6,000 spectators with
room for expansion. It will be built
with the possible rapid growth of
the student body after the war taken Into consideration.
It was thought that Memorial
hall would accommodate the University for fifty years, but it was
outgrown in five years time.
Tentative plans include a stage
large enough for a basketball floor,
and an auditorium capable of seating 6,000 on one' side with basketball floors and handball courts on
the other side.
The Kentucky legislature will be
asked to appropriate $600,000 for
the new building and the Board of
Trustees will supply the remainder
of the funds. Governor Keen Johnson has already supplied the University with $400,000 toward the
project, which has been partly
spent on the purchase of the building site on Euclid avenue and
Adams street.
Construction will begin as soon
as possible afte the war, according
to Dr. Donovaii.

Why A Residence Requirement
1'ncler (he new (onsiiiuiron of the Student
Governnu-association Assemblv a requirement for candidacy and election is two quarters of residence at the I'niversitx. This provision, which excludes incoming; freshmen from
membership in the Assembly, has received liiile
publicity and has never been explained in ihc
general student body.
In former years a man and a woman were
elected to the legislature by ihe freshman class
from a list of candidates made up of the names
of those ranking in the upper lenth of the class
on entrance examinations.
That mere scholastic merit was a criterion
of legislative ability had always been a moot
question. That candidates chosen beforehand
by the various political cliques on the campus
were summarilv elected was an indisputable
And ihai ihese iwo representatives, entirely
unfamiliar with ihe campus and its problems,
took a very negligible pan in the proceedings
was evident to evervone.
The Constitutional committee, made up of
students and faculty members, which drafted
the new constitution was aware of the inabilitv
of incoming freshmen to take an active pan in
'.lie legislature because they larked the necessary background. Weighing ihe advisabilitv of
having the entire freshman class represented in
student government against the necessitv of having efficient legislators, the committee wrote the
residence requirement into the new constitution.
Denied of personal representation in the Assembly, it is up to the first and second quarter
