i   President James K. Patterson
AMES KENNEDY PATTERSON was bora in Glasgow, Scotland, mi the 26th day of March, 1833. With his parents he came to America when he was but 9 years of age and settled in the southeastern pari of Indiana, which was sparsely inhabited and where school facilities at that time were very meagre, lie had no educational opportunities until 1 S4!t, when For two years he attended a school in Madison, Ind. During 1850-'51 he taught school near this place, and in the latter year, entered the preparatory department of Hanover College. The four years following he taught school and attended college alternately, and in 1856 graduated.
For three years after his gradual ion from college he held the position of Principal of the Greenville Presbyterial Academy at Greenville, Ky.. hut in 1859 accepted the chair of Latin and Greek in Stewart College, Clarksville, Tenn. In 1861 he was called to Lexington to accept the principalship of the Transylvania High School, which be held for four years. He was also Professor of Latin in Morrison College from '06-'69 and of History and Metaphysics in the Agricultural College of Kentucky University from '66-'69. From 1869 until 1878 we find him President of the Agricultural College of Kentucky I'niversity, and in 1878 he became President of the State College of Kentucky, which position he has so ably filled to the present time. From the year 1878 dates the existence of Kentucky's only TJniversitv. and the history of its grand old President's life is the history of its evolution into the position is so justly occupies at the present time. Its ever eloquent supporter in lime of peace ami prosperity, ns ever ready defender in times of attack from its enemies, President Patterson, by his interest in this his life's work, by his unlimited energy in making his school whal he had so long dreamed it should be, has won a place in the heart of every student in the college, of every graduate who knows the history of his Alma Mater, and of every true citizen of the grand old Commonwealth who can appreciate the effort and energy of a greai man in attempting to attain his ideal.
President Patterson received the degree of Doctor of Philosophy from Hanover College, Indiana, in 1875, and that of Doctor of Laws from Lafayette College, Pennsylvania, in 1896.
Governor Leslie, in 1875, in canvassing the state to find the man who would best represent Kentucky at the International Congress of Geographical Sciences, held in Paris. France, naturally selected President Patterson, as did also Governor Buckner in 1890, when he must select a man to best voice the grand old commonwealth's representation at the British Association for the Advancement of Science.
Other distinguished honors which have fallen to President Patterson are: Fellow of Royal Historical Society of (Ireat Britain . 1879: Fellow of Society of Antiquaries in Scotland, 1880: Member and President of American Association of Land Grant Colleges and Universities, 1903.
A few words here concerning the birth and perpetuation of State College would not be out of place, for it was the success of President Patterson's efforts in this direction that stamped him as a man of ability, of undeviating tenacity and one whose conviction was not to be shaken by the many obstacles that beset his path.
In 1880 he obtained appropriations from the city of Lexington and Fayette County for the erection of buildings upon the College grounds: was principally instrumental in retaining the Agricultural and Mechanical College, which has subsequently developed into the State College of Kentucky, at Lexington in 1880. and in obtaining from the Legislature a perpetual appropriation for the proceedings of
a half-cent tax on every hundred dollars of taxable property as additional income for the college. It was at this juncture where the greatest fight of his life came which bespoke the future of State College, and a fight for which he may jusly feel proud. In 1882 the tax was assailed by the denominational colleges of the state and one could only conjecture as to the future of State College. However, President Patterson, by his characteristic vigilance for his purpose, discovered their aim too soon and succeeded, single-handed and alone, in defeating their combined efforts.
This great legal battle was primarily composed of two parts. The first attack of the denominational colleges upon President Patterson was when he was trying to secure the passage of the bill in the Legislature. His speech and lengthy argument before the legislative committee on that memorable night evoked the applause and admiration of almost all the Senators and Representatives and of men from the bench, all of whom listened with admiration to the eloquence of the speaker.
The second and last part of the battle was in the state courts, where the constitutionality of the bill was tested. The denominational colleges had employed the best lawyers to be had, but again President Patterson represented State College, and won.
In 1887 he took a prominent part in the passage of the Hatch Act by Congress, for the endowment of Experiment Stations, and in 1890 for an additional appropriation of $25,000 a year by Congress for the further endowment of the State College. In 1904 he obtained from the State Legislature an additional annual appropriation of $15,000.
The most recent things accomplished by President Patterson was his securing about $30,000 from Mr. Carnegie for a library for Kentucky State College, and also the co-operation of Senators and Representatives from Kentucky for the support of the Knute-Xelson liill for an additional endowment of State College.
Thus we have some idea of what has been the work of President Patterson. He has kept steadily on his way, his strength proving equal to the beating heat of the noon-day's sun. This feat is the highest proof of his mind's elasticity and sanity. His career has attested the truth of the maxim, "There is nothing so conservative as progress."
President Patterson is a brilliant converser and an eloquent speaker. In every discourse one feels the ulow of his personality, rich in human interest, enkindling in enthusiasm and mellowed by intense spirituality. AAHien his powers are excited in speech there appears upon his face a light which is not accounted for by mere intelligence, however superior; it is the radiance of something higher, genius we may call it, though it is without the wayward element too often characteristic of men who share in this quality. His eloquence is due not alone to a passionate earnestness in the pursuit of truth, not alone to his happy sympathy with youthful minds striving to enter the mysteries of nature and life, but also to a certain poetic faculty which makes itself felt in the spirit and structure of his discourses.
In listening to President Patterson's conversation I have always thought that here is a man whom purpose and circumstances must have led into the deepest experiences in human life, yet through it all, knowledge has only chastened his mind and intelligence has won for him admiration. He is gentle, because he is great, like Roberi E. Lee. He has a wisdom that is born of application to duty and study. He has the faith of a seer because he knows the inherent potencv of truth and has confidence in man's response to Divine Love. You cannot but feel that this man has the vision of God because he is pure of heart.
In closing, may we note that the monument he has established at Kentucky State College is and will be more lasting than brass, more influential and wholesome than anything that the hand and head of genius has been able to achieve, a living character close to the realization of one's ideal of energy and love of purpose. He has shone as one of the brightest jewels to light the pathway of Kentucky youths striving for enlightment and excellence. He has been a most real and true conception of ideal democracy and general knowledge. A. M. K.
8 Editor's Page
1ELDEPS of the "hammer,'' arise! Peruse these pages and knock. Unless you do we shall be sadly disappointed. We shall have mithridated ourselves against your bitter pills of unfavorable criticism, your accusations of "graft," your deadly doses of "I told you so's" and your injections of ex post facto advice in vain. We have little apprehension, however, that you will disappoint us, for there seem to be two inviolable laws of a college annual: First, that it will not be published on schedule time; second, that when it does appear, it were better for the reputation of the editors had it not done so. Long ago we were told of the existence of these laws by one who had found them out by experiment, and who kindly advised us "never to have nothing to do with no college annual." Twice since we have been -told the same thing by others of equally good authority. With too little respect for the wisdom that age and experience brings we resolved to show the world that even if such laws existed they had exceptions.   Vain conceit!   Our opinions have changed.
We realize that our efforts have been feeble, and were about to say that we would try to do better next time. Put, thanks to custom, there is no next time for us. We wish to thank those who have so kindly and patiently helped us get this work ready to pan off on the public, pray for those who are to come after us, and sympathize with those who have gone before.

The Department of Science holds prestige over all others in being the oldest as well as one of the best in the history of the College. At its head is the eminent mathematician, Prof. James G, While. He is principal instructor in Mathematics, and also pilots main' yOung and tender minds through the unknown depths of astronomical observation.
There are seven courses, each with an elective major study leading to the degree of B. S. The elective majors of the several courses are Zoology, ChomistTv. Physics, Geology, Botany, Entomology, and Anatomy and Physiology.
The able exponent of the wonders and mysteries of rocks, fossils, and animals, dead and alive, is Professor Arthur M. Miller, who is at the head of the Geological.
Zoological, and Kntomologica] departments. To one so versatile in his attainments is clue the respect and admiration of all students. Professor Miller, aside frcan his duties as an instructor, has proved himself to be tin1 friend and patron of pure athletics, and his hearty co-operation and assistance can always be relied upon in any matter pertaining to the interests of the physical attitude.
The domain of the chemists is under the supervision of Dr. F. E. Tuttle and Dr. 11. X. Maxson. Both these instructors have the degree of Ph. 1). and are worthy exponents of the "great science." Dr. Tuttle was formerly of the Stale University of Pennsylvania, and Dr. Maxson is a graduate of Yale.
The chemical library has recently been increased and the laboratory equipped with a set of apparatus, some of which can scarcely he duplicated in the South. Altogether the Department of Chemistry is looming on the horizon as one Of the most excellent training schools in its line in our section of the country.
Professor Pence still continues.to have charge of the Department of Physics. For many a day, in his able manner, has he instructed the student in the wiles of force, energy, and matter. Truly he deserves his title of "Peter.the Great."   The physical labora-
 tory is well equipped and affords an excellent opportunity for those, so desiring, to obtain a good knowledge of the subject.
In the "land of flowers" we find Professor Matthews delving into the secrets of Botany. His are flowery paths, bordered by rows of swaying poppies and leading to an understanding and appreciation of the beauties of nature. The instructor is well fitted to train and cultivate the minds of future Botanists, tending them with a "kindly eye and soothing hand." The course in Botany comprises lecture, laboratory and class work, complete in every detail, and the laboratory is equipped with the best apparatus procurable.
Doctor Pryor presides in the temple of Physiology and Anatomy. Here, surrounded by grim skeletons and mocking death's heads, he expounds to you the secrets of the human organism. Dr. Pryor is as competent as a friend of the athlete as he is as an instructor.. Pie is well known upon the ball field, where his ministering hand has acted as a panacea for many an injured hero.
In all great undertakings there is a guiding spirit: in all institutions there is a man noted for his earnestness, fairness, and ability: the friend of one and all. To him too much credit cannot be given for the upbuilding and perfection of the course he represents.. To him are due the acclamations of all our students and to him we give our toast: Long life and prosperity to our clean, Professor James G. White. CLASSICAL!
1. And it came to pass in the sixth month of the seventh year, during the reign of James K. Patterson, that the tribe of Seniors, before their departure from Kay Ess Sea, did ascend the stairs to the chamber of the steward of the most high king, to seek his blessing.
2. And, lo 1 he was a man of single eye; with the nv wisdom of Solomon had he imparted to the youth for '  ' -'"-r-the space of two score years and eight the deeds of the noble Cicero and the chants of the poet Horace.
3. And when they had uncovered their heads before his presence, he laid his hand upon them and spake in this manner: "Naow, do-n't a-s-k me-e to ble-e-s-s you, naow do-n't; g-o d-own below and seek the blessing of the man from the High Mountains.
I. So they departed and entered the kingdom of him who taught them to be scribes, and who was known throughout the land as the comforter of the innocent and the beautiful. He, the man of Caledonia, bade them be of good cheer and delivered them into the hands of Zembrod.
5. Who was in that day a mighty man before the eyes of the Woman's Club. The music of his voice was as an inspiration to the seekers after strange tongues, and as this tribe did file from out his sight, he gave his blessing in the words, "Auf Wiederselm."
6. And there were left among the loiterers a few of the Senior band who were given into the charge of one deemed worthy by His Majesty. Theodore'Tbl-man Jones.
7. Thus they passed from wisdom unto wisdom and with tearful eyes prepared to return unto the land of their forefathers, for during their sojourn at Kay Ess Sea there had been great delight among them.
8. And it came to pass that '07 busted.
23  Objection lias been made to the 'pedagogue' on the ground that originally used to designate the slave who lead the boy to school, as consequently a term of con-pt. Rut has the shift of meaning been any greater in this word than in many others to which no objection has ever been raised? The word 'school' comes from the Anglo-Saxon 'scpl,' ami this in turn is derived through the Latin from the Greek word whole, meaning 'leisure.' 'Master' was likewise originally 'magister ludi,' and meant a 'master of sport.' It seems that the word 'slave' is. not -much wider of the mark as applied to the man who toadies fifty-seven youngsters six hours a day in a little old ramshackled school house on a bleak hillside, for twenty-five dollars a month, and "finds his own board." than is 'leisure' for the name of school where that 'slave' presides as the 'magister ludi'.
But there has-been a shift of meaning in all of these words. The school is no longer a place of leisure, but a bee-hive where everybody is busy: the pedagogue is not the slave that leads the boy to school, but the most important citizen in the state, who Meads' the mind and the heart of the child in the development id' intellect and character.
It makes little difference by what name we call the teacher, so long as we appreciate his worth to the world. The thing to be most regretted is that the common school teacher is not rightly appreciated. Every citizen in the state i_s largely, almost entirely, a creature of environment. The earliest impressions are the deepest and influence our lives the most. The position of the college professor, the minister of the gospel, or the law-maker is indeed important. Hut the teacher (pedagogue, if you will) in the Normal School roaches more lives and has higher responsibilities than anyone or all of these; for he it is that molds the life and shapes the destinies of thousands and thousands of boys and girls whom he never sees through the life and Character of those whom he instructs ami prepares for the great work of the common schools.
Prof. Milford White, who became began of the Normal School in 1905, has proven himself a most efficient head for this department. By his energy, his good judgment, his fine scholarship, and. by his interest in those who matriculate in this department, he has gained the confidence of people all over .the state and raised the school to a position of dignity and high regard among the faculty and students of the College.
