"ON, ON, U. OF K."
A revelation of what the University Is doing and
the progress it is making and its plans for the future
was presented to the public In an editorial which appeared In The Lexington Herald Sunday, April 7.
Tribute was paid to the University authorities, including "Miracle Man McVey," for their efforts in
tte University development program.
The Kentucky Kernel, on behalf of the student
boiy and all others who are interested in the advancement of our University, wishes to thank The
Herald for "those kind words." We appreciate them,
but also we believe that they were merited. We believe that too much praise canitot be' gfven the workers in this great project which will result in a greater
state and in a greater nation.
The editorial is herewith reprinted. It should be
read by every Kentucklan. It cannot be paraphrased
and made better. Let it speak for itself:

Honest confession is good for the soul. When a
western Kentucky newspaper said recently that there
seemed to be no purpose or plans to put the University of Kentucky forward. The Herald felt justified In
trying to take the rest of the state to task for knowing so little of the great achievements taking place
on the grounds of its own near neighbor.
How little Indeed do Lexingtonians realize what
is being accomplished! When fourteen of the fifteen
members of the board of directors of the Lexington
Board of Commerce and representatives of Lexington newspapers were taken on a pilgrimage Wednesday at the University their eyes were opened their
mouths, too.
A regular anvil chorus rings out from the builders;
such construction as one might have expected in a
Houston or a Miami is actually taking place.
On Memorial Day, May 30, the beautiful chapel
known as the Memorial building, in which encased in
glass and in gold leaf are to be written the immortal
names of Kentucky's 3,300 World War dead, will be
dedicated. Slightly back of the College of Agriculture
building, this stately temple Is now on what is generally considered the south end of the campus.
A campus plan for the University, looking forward
25 years, already is on paper. In this plan the Memorial building is at the center of the campus. But
while the plan is only on paper, the actual development of It is well under way.
Across Limestone street the great steel and concrete foundation pillars which will support the new
education building, half of the funds for which were
donated by the General Education B.oard, rise from
what has been the city dump. Over this unsightly
acreage is to be raised the large building, with the
college of education in the center and a model high
school and a model elementary school as left and
right wings. This one building will virtually equal
the three original buildings of the University campus,
now all standing and in use, after fifty years of service.

Back toward Rose street the two new units of the
dormitory group are rapidly nearing completion as
though springing from the ground. Indeed, when
completed these new dormitories will offer to the
students who remain In the dormitories facilities that
are the best that any students could hope for, with
study rooms, baths, gathering rooms, a group system
for rooms and spacious rooms and halls. To find a
contrast, one has only to look at the old dormitory
building still In use, with its crowded quarters. When
Maury Crutcher, the superintendent of buildings and
grounds and genius of much of the campus development, was a student not so many years ago the boys
carried water from Mulligan and Maxwell springs
and rilled a tank, still enshrined in the old aorm attic, a3 a part of the
night ceremonies.
McVey hall, facing Kastle hall on the eastern part
of the campus, which was recently erected, is a joy
to behold. Here is the cafeteria, indeed a valuable
acquisition. Shades of the old mess hall, with its
coatless masses scrambling for seats and crying for
"Zip!" The refining influences of co-eand cleanliness have worked marvels. An entire floor is taken
by this cafeteria, with a ceiling that swallows echoes,
a kitchen that is a model,
On the side of the College of Engineering a building nearly ready for use Is the $10,000 laboratory for
the study of the eltects of heating, lighting and ventilation on plants and other life Its glass sides glisten
in the sunlight but a short distance from the grove
whose center and sponsor was a sinkhole, a natural
bowl which at one time was the sewer system, at
another indeed was used as an amphitheater for a
commencement. What a comparison, with the Memorial building now almost ready for such use!
Back of the football stadium there is now being

completed a garden and arboretum In which are to
be found all the plants, shrubs and many small trees
which are native to Kentucky, and an old log roadway is being constructed over the streams and
through the trees, an inspiration to students to love
Kentucky's gift from nature.
The plans also already have been completed for a
new library building. Memorial hall, two new men's
dormitories, the education building, new engineering
laboratory and new dairy products building on the
farm now under construction, an additional hall to
the girls' dormitory group, McVey hall and outer
construction completed and In use, and plans drawn
looking forward 25 years and anticipating a student
body ten thousand strong this is the evidence that
the University Is looking forward.
Let It not be thought from this that the State of
Kentucky has been lavish In gifts. That Is far from
the fact. The dormitories are built under an authorized amortization plan, the education building largely
through the gift of the General Education Board,
the engineering laboratory through a gift and McVey
hall partly through popular subscription.
Yet another source has been from savings from

that It could In running expenses and has put Its
savings In buildings a secure bank.
This has been accomplished through the cooperation of the faculty. Under Dr. McVcy's leadership
there has developed among the University family not
only professors but all who arc a part of Its development, their families, the administrative personnel, a
deep and glorious faith and truly a passion to make
the University of Kentucky a leader among the educational institutions of the South. With its growth
and progress accomplished and prospective as a rich
reward, yet not in most cases a fair recompense, they
have kept at their posts, rejoicing In their hopes for
the University and for the commonwealth.
In most cases it has been through sacrifice on the
part of members of the faculty that so much has been
done and so much more can bo planned. Yet where
docs vision develop where there is not sacrifice?
Still a more striking development has been in the
character of the student body. Much Is heard in
these days of flaming youth. A newspaper Is probably
placed In a better position to know how the young
women and men of the University of Kentucky conduct themselves perhaps even than the deans of men
and women. Let this testimony be presented, that

is seldom that the students of the University cause
disturbance. Yet there are 2,600 students living in
the midst of Lexington.
The old days of tying down the whistle and making street cars miserable, of uproar and disorder are

And so, startled indeed by a better appreciation
the wonders that are being accomplished, The
Herald takes this occasion again, better-informtherefore more highly enthused, to place before those
Kentucklans whom it reaches this .summary of some
of the more apparent things that are being done at
the University of Kentucky, where scholastic ranking
