housed in the Sigma Nu fraternity
house, Jewell hall, Hamilton house,
and the sorority houses. With the
beginning of the fall quarter only

E'pg'i"" fraternity house will be
used lor women students, according to the announcement. Freshmen will live In Anderson and the
SAE house.
All students will eat their meals
in the dining rooms In Jewell and
Boyd balls.
The spokesman stated that the
sorority houses will be occupied first
by the girls of that sorority, and
any vacancies will be filled by the

"Not so many women are needed
in the service as there are In other
places," one coed said. She emphasized the fact that women
would be drafted if the need became great. "I dont believe in

"Women should stay feminine,"
was the opinion expressed by many.
Until the present day, men have
fought our wars and won them, and
they can continue to do so. War is
a man's problem, and he often resents the intrusion of women, they
agreed. Men in the service seem to
prefer women in civilian clothes,
and not in uniform. It is the woman's task to keep up the morale

Sometimes at night as I lie
awake, breathing alternately

old days in Boyd hall. Then I

time, only twenty pairs of
shoes strewn across the floor

wade across the room without
much effort ond then, too, I
could study with only one person talking to me.
Those days (bless 'em) ore
gone for the
duration. "Ready to sacrifice
for their country, the coeds of
the University of Kentucky

Now I have two roommates.

Prospects for basketball at Ken
tucky in the forthcoming season,
which were rather discouraging un
til recently, have begun to brighten
up, according to Adolph Rupp, head
basketball mentor.
Coach Rupp stated that Ken
tucky will definitely have a team
this season, although it possibly
will not be on a par with teams the
University has had in the past
Nevertheless, it is Rupp's belief
that Kentucky will have a good
quintet before the season is over.
It is very difficult to find boys
for the team," he said, "but I expect to have a nice team despite
this difficulty."
This season's schedule will be approximately the same as that - of
previous years. Games have already
been scheduled with Notre Dame,
Ohio State, Great Lakes, and Indiana. All of these schools have
naval units which can furnish players for their teams, and are therefore sure of having basketball this
winter, Rupp said.
As to the individual players on
this winter's roster, Rupp listed as
fairly certain prospects, Parker,
Schu, Moseley, Smotherman, and
Back. In addition to these, a group
of freshmen, who will be enrolled
this fall, will add to the strength
of the team. Among these fresh-

men are Johnson from Mt. Sterling, who distinguished himself in
KHSAA tournament play at Mt.
Sterling high, and a new member
of the DeMoisey family, from Walton, who is a brother of former
basketball star "Frenchy" De
Moisey. There are other freshmen
coming this fall who should assure
UK of a good, although unseasonseason,
ed, team for the 1943-4- 4
Rupp continued.
It is doubtful as yet as to what
colleges in the south will have teams
this season. Coach Rupp stated that
no games have been schedule
