(INS) Having suffered In dogged
silence through the utter discomfiture of Its favorite ball club yesterday, Detroit's impulsive populace
prepared today to take another
beating, this time from the weather,
for the second game of the 1935
World Series between the Detroit
Tigers and Chicago Cubs. Temperatures well down toward freezing had
the fans huddling miserably in the
stands, with a
roaring down the length of the stadium and adding to the discomfort.
The weather was son Inclement
early in the day that a postponement seemed indicated with rain
and sleet beating an unlovely refrain upon the heads of the overnight crowd. But Just when it appeared that the game neither would
nor could be played, the skies cleared, prompting an unofficial decision to go through with the game
in spite of the elements.
It was probably the coldest day

Chilly autumn night breezes had
descended and shadows from the
surrounding campus buildings began to creep onto Stoll field last
night before Coach Chet Wynne
dismissed the Kentucky Wildcats
from their last workout in preparation for their encounter tomorrow In Columbus. Ohio, with the
Buckeyes of Ohio State.
The Wildcat mentor ha., been
anything but pleased with this
week's workouts and scrimmaged
his charges with the freshmen yesterday for the third time in three
days. The freshmen were equipped
with Ohio State plays and time
and time again made forward and
lateral passes good for touchdowns.
On one intricate pass play two
backs handled the ball before Earl
Sands, big freshman fullback, received it on a backward flip and
heaved it to Hodge, who trotted
over the goal line. Not a single
Wildcat was within a dozen yards
of Hodge when he accepted the
pass. This play was used very
successfully by the Buckeyes in their
campaign last year.
Captain Jimmy Long received a
broken toe In Monday's workout
and will probably see the game Saturday from the bench. Russell Ellington, outstanding Louisville contribution to the Big Blue team, will
get the starting call In Long's position tqmorrow. Another change
this week will

find Elmore Simpson, husky sophomore from Alabama, In Langdan
Hay's place at fullback.
When the Wildcats and the Buckeyes face each other it will be the
first time a Kentucky team has met
a representative of th Big Ten conference in seven years. The last time
a Big Blue aggregation invaded
this conference was In 1928 and
they were handed a 7 to 0 defeat
by the Northwestern Wildcats.
Kentucky's first engagement with
a representative of the Big Ten
was "way back when." On October
12, 1895, Purdue defeated the Ken- -'
tuckians by a margin of 32 to 0. In
later years, Kentucky met, and was
defeated by such teams of the con-- I
ference as Illinois, University of
Chicago, Northwestern and the Unl- versity of Michigan. Probably the
most outstanding victory ever scored
by a Wildcat gridiron machine was
recorded in 1915, when Kentucky
defeated Purdue University by a
score of 7 to 0.
Many University students and
Lexingtonians will follow the Cats
to Columbus tomorrow in the hope
of seeing Coach Wynne and his
brave boys score the major upset
of the season by defeating the
Robert Salyers, U. K. alumni secretary, stated this week that the

are invited to visit the headquarters

U. of K. Archaeological Museum

Made Reality by Efforts of
Professor Miller, Says Dr. Webb
One of the several pluces on the
campus that has attracted considerable attention In recent years is the
Museum of Anthropology and Archaeology.

The Department of Anthropology
and Archaeology owes its present
status, in a large measure, to the
inspiration of the late Professor A.
M. Miller. In his field work in
geology Professor Miller, as a care-

ful scientific observer, located many
prehistoric sites. He called the possibilities of the investigation of
these sites to the attention of Professor William S. Webb, who was a
student In those days. In later life
Professor Miller organized several
expeditions for archaeological work
and Professor Webb accompanied
him on these trips.
This was the beginning of field
work in archaeology in Kentucky.
After Professor Miller was unable
to continue an account of illness the
work was carried on by Professor
Webb and his associates.
wealth of prehistoric sites in Kentucky and the work which was done
upon them soon attracted attention
outside of the state. This resulted
in grants from the Smithsonian Institute, from the National Research
Council and from private sources.
At first, those engaged in this
work had no official status In
archaeology. For this purpose the
Department of Archaeology was organized. Dr. William D. Funkhouser, Dean of the Graduate
school, was made Professor of Anthropology, and Professor Webb was
