si   _ .. This year’s Kentuckian has been dedicated to the Commonwealth of Ken- {
El   I . tucky. In affecting this idea the editors have had a three—colorecl spread of the 5 D]
  ' State Capitol prepared that should prove one of the most elaborate designs that  i mmlml
Q`   _ have ever appeared in the Kentuckian,  i and th
li   Probably the section that should make its strongest appeal to the alumni is V- dwg iw
  `   the 24-page insert ]ubilee Section. In this section have been gathered a latx€  Z_ wérk `

the early class-tree planting was kept and only in the last few years were proper ‘
i markings of trees made. It is to be regretted that no records of the various I _
` plantings were kept, as it makes it almost impossible to locate many of them- ` 3
, some have died and the same spot taken by other classes and others have passed I
 i out of memory. _ _
Prof. Frank T. McFarland, of the University, is making a survey of the  
. class trees with the idea of properly marking them. If any one can give Prof. » A
- McFarland any information as to the location of any class trees, particularly ~ Z

I  . Dr. \\’iley’s talk briefly handled the question of education today and he ex-
Zl pressed a regret that the large colleges and universities are placing such em- L l
A r phasis on technique and leaving such little stress on the human and altruistic
2 ° side of the youthful training. He lamented the fact that the aim of the educator
l . and the student seems to be to make a living, to amass wealth or to acquire fame,
)_ _ altogether forgetting the bigger and broader side of the work for the benefit
__ i Of mankind, of the state and nation and for future generations,
Qi  » Dig \/Viley, who has been for many years a brilliant light in the stellar world y ‘ A
C · of scientists, has offered his time and labor and the accomplishments of his brain ·
al  N {Oi- the betterment of the American people. He is better prepared to advise and   -
_ to warn the American people of the dangers of training young people in the lines Z
— of skill and efficiency alone, than any other one man. His observations are com— l
° pelling and his word an authority on any subject. {
  The other speakers for the luncheon were happy in their remarks, many of  
lk  ( which touched lightly on education in the State. Dr. Terrell alone made a formal l
ll` 1 but brief talk on George \\’ashington and the American idea of patriotism. Pres-  
lc   ident Barker presided at the luncheon, which was attended by about 100 guests
