University senate rule to the effect
that no dances may be held by University organizations before Thanksgiving, and that Dean Mclchcr gave

Miss Dingman has traveled all over
the world and has done much for
the general improvements of industrial conditions, particularly in China,
where child labor standards have been
quite unsatisfactory in the past. When
she was in China, in 1925, Miss Dingman stated, that the standards for
child labor were very low; in fact
there were practically no standards,
for the children work at any age, any
hour and under very trying circumstances, in most cases. Since there
is no good government to enact the
laws, practcally no money to work
with, and few workers, it is conse
quently difficult for China to progress
much industrially.
During the war Miss Dingman did
Y. W. C. A. work abroad, chiefly in
France, where she remained for three
years, and was engaged in industrial
work. She also spent much time in
Jerusalem, and she states that the

Williams can snatch

'Cats Will Oppose Star Backs
The W. & L. backfield includes

compose oue of the most formidable

This year the officers of the Alumni association will inauRiirnte
what has Ioiir been n much needed factor in the activities of our
Alumni association: a system of class reunions. This feature is one
of the biRRest factors in the annual homecoming of alumni in most
of the universities and coIIorcs in the United States.
The class of 1908 this year held its first reunion on the campus,
and if we are correctly informed, it was the first reunion of any class
Wo do know for sure that it was
in the history of the University.
the most successful reunion that any class of the University lias
over held. An account of that reunion, written by one of the members of the class, appears in another column on tins pape.
Some Alumni associations use a system of reunions whereby the
four classes that were in school at the same time meet at the homecoming. While this is a most successful way in which to run reunions, the officers of this association believe that it is better for our
needs to have classes from the earliest down to the youngest gathering
This, in their estimation, makes of
in reunions at the same time.
the association a body more closely knit as a whole and not one made
up of groups from different periods.
The system that has been planned already has been announced in
an earlier issue of The Kernel. Classes graduating five years apart
from the first on down to the last will meet this year. Those classed
will be as follows: 1869, 1874, 1879, 1889, 1894, 1904, 1909, 1914,
1919, 1924, and the class of 1927. By this system you can see that
alumni of all ages will be present at this reunion. Next year classes
jumps down to the class
beginning with 1868 and coming in five-yeBy this system
of 1925 and the class of 1928, will hold reunions.
each class will hold a reunion every five years.
In the jast the homecoming of the Alumni has been more or less of
a haphazard affair, a reunion of all classes and with no especial organization. This we hope to correct this year.
The plans which are still in the formative stage already call for
a separate meeting place for each class, with meetings and programs
for each class. This will be added to the general meetings and entertainments which will include all the classes present along with
all others who return home.
A system of class reunions is not begun with the idea of letting
only the members of the classes in reunion return for homecoming,
but with the idea of increasing the number who return, and to make
it more interesting for the homecomers.
Work has already been
started leading to an organization of each class that will hold a reunion this year. Further plans will be made and announced in subsequent issues of The Kernel on this page. Watch for them and
make plans to help the officers made this initial effort a success.

We use the word Alumni

strictly meaning the male graduates of

a university, college or other institution of learning, to mean all the
members of the Alumni association of the University, both male and
female. The use of the word in this sense was recently accepted and
made standard by the American Alumni council, in its constitution.
Article one of that constitution reads: "The name of this association
is the American Alumni Council. The word 'alumni' is construed to'
include both alumni and alumnae." This merely to indicate that our
association takes in both the male and female graduates of the University of Kentucky.
