Early in 1919 after the signing of the Armistice in the World
War there was started in Lexington a movement to raise funds
for the construction of a memorial building on the campus of
the University to commemorate those Kentucky soldiers who
had lost their lives in the war. Similar movements had been
launched in several neighboring states and in some the money
had been raised and buildings started. Preliminary discussions
resulted in the plan to raise $300,000 by popular subscription in
The plan was pushed along several different lines until in
1923, when active work for funds was stopped. About
of the money first designated as a goal was pledged. Since some
of this money was not collectable at once the plan was delayed
for some time. Last fall the executive committee of the Kentucky Memorial Building Fund held a meeting and it was decided at this meeting that a building was to be built. Accordingly President McVey and the Executive Committee of the
Board of Trustees of the University were authorized to prepare plans for a memorial building and to proceed with the
construction. It was decided that the memorial be in the form
of an auditorium on the campus, of the University.
The plans were made and the contract for the erection of
the building has been let as already has been said in preceding
issues of The Kernel.





one-ha- lf





The Executive Committee of this fund authorized the erection
of this building with the firm belief that all the outstanding
pledges to this fund be paid, and also all the pledges to the
Greater Kentucky Fund be paid in full. The Greater Kentucky
Fund now owes to the Memorial Building Fund approximately
$35,000 in principal and interest. This along with a goodly number of unpaid pledges to the Memorial Building Fund will be
needed for the completion of the building.





Within the next few days there will be a call for a payment
in full of all the pledges to the Kentucky Memorial Building
Fund. This money is needed immediately. It also will be necessary to make a call for a complete payment of unpaid pledges
to the Greater Kentucky Fund in order that the obligation of
the Alumni Association to that fund be removed.
The Memorial Building drive was, of course, not purely an
Alumni drive, but for popular subscription in Kentucky. However, there were a great many Alumni who pledged money to
this fund. It will materially aid the University of Kentucky if
these pledges are paid in full at once. However, more important to the Alumni is the payment of the still unpaid pledges to
the Greater Kentucky Fund. This is needed as much as payments to the Memorial Building Fund. The Alumni of the University are under a moral obligation to remove this debt. It
can be done easily if a prompt and full payment is made on your
pledge to the Greater Kentucky Fund.
We wish to state that further subscriptions to either of these
funds will be gladly received.

The first game of the season
with Kentucky University was of
ficially called a tie, 0 to 0, but really
resulted in a victory for State Col- lege, 2 to 0. For Wallace, of K. U.,
clearly made a safety and it was only
the ignorance of the official in regard
to the rules of the game that led him
to call it a touch back and hence no
score against the side making it. In
those days we had to rely for officials
very largely on persons who only
knew the rules from having read them
over in a book, and hence decisions
were apt to be pretty "raw."
The other games between State
College and other colleges that year
resulted as follows:
Nov. 6, at Richmond, Central University 8, State College G.
Nov. 12, State College 14, Louisville Athletic Club 10.
Nov. 28, at Lexington, Va., Military
Institute 34, State College 0.
Dec. 3, at Lexington, Central University 10, State College 6.
The other games in the K. I. A. A.
(for the Association was organized
before the season was over), resulted
as follows:
Nov. 6, Central 12, University of
Cincinnati 4.
Nov. 12, Central University 8, Kentucky University 4.
Nov. 19, Kentucky University 6,
Central University 4.
It was this latter game that K. U.'s

duty of the manager in those days to

shoes which the members of the teams
supplied individually. If he couldn't
make it out of the gate receipts, it
was one of the privileges of being

Professor J. W. Newman, now Commissioner of Agriculture, was the
