songs, liturgical music, and classical
music. In addition, members of the
group perform sword dances and
execute a "kazatski," a popular type
of Russian dance.
Serge Jaroff Is Director
Under the direction of Serge Jaroff, the singers and dancers begin
their tour across the United States
and Canada each September and
continue giving concerts until spring.
This season the group has scheduled appearances throughout the
country which will compel them to
travel 40,000 miles.
The term, Don Cossacks, originally
applied to a group of Russian horsemen. Recently, they changed their
name to the Jaroff Chorus and
Dancers.
Troupe On Tour Since 1921
Since leaving their native land in
1927, the singers and dancers have
covered more than two million miles
from the Atlantic to the Pacific

choral arrangements used by high
school glee clubs in this country.

Is WSSF Drive Goal
By CAROL DORTON

With the goal set at one dollar
for each University student, the
World Student Service Fund will
close its campus drive Saturday.
The purpose of WSSF is to pro- vide material aid to students of foreign countries, to help them obtain
text books and equipment, to help
them help themselves, and to give
students and teachers a feeling of
international unity.
Bill Kitchen, national WSSF
chairman of Atlanta, Ga., spoke to
the solicitors Tuesday evening. He
discussed "What WSSF Means to
Me." At this meeting 80 of the 250
solicitors made their pledges, which
was an average of $3.50 foV each
solicitor.
Last week various members of the
Cosmopolitan Club spoke about
WSSF at sorority and fraternity
houses. Those who spoke were

As Soullfs 'Best'
The Margaret I. King Library has

the first annual Southern Books
Competition, Dr. Lawrence Thomp- son, director of libraries, announced

Competition'
The Southern Books
was started this year under sponsor- ship of the Southeastern Library
Association. Sixteen books are pick- ed as representative of the best of
Southern book production each
year.
Beginning this year, the 16 top
books selected will be exhibited in
libraries throughout the South and
then placed in a special permanent
collection in the UK library.
The unanimous choice of the
judges in the competition this year
was "The Comanches, Lords of the
South Plains," written by Ernest
Wallace and E. A. Hobel. The book
u:is nulilishfd bv llie Univer.siLV of

Dr. J. S. Horine, professor of engineering, and Dr. Lee H. Townsend,
professor of agriculture, have been
appointed faculty representatives to
the Student Government Association, George Lawson, president, announced at a meeting Monday ni);ht.
Jane Stockton was elected secretary to fulfill the vacancy left by
Zoe Parker who was recently married. The Assembly elected Wayne
Carrol as representative of the Commerce College to fulfill a vacancy in
college.

Pete Carter, chairman of the Judicial committee, swore in James
Kostas, who was elected last week
as representative to fulfill a vacancy
in the Law College.
SGA Elections Scheduled
The Registrar's office has begun
making application blanks for SGA
elections to be held Dec. 17, Fred
Williams, chairman of the election
committee, said. Candidates must
ppply by Dec. 10.
In next month's election, students
will elect one lower classman, one
loer class woman, one upper classman, and one upper classwoman
from the College of Arts and Sciences; one lower classman and one
upper classman from the Agriculture
College; one lower classman from
the Commerce College; one upper
classman from the Engineering Col

one man at large from the
Graduate School; and one man at
large from the Education College.
Jane Truitt, chairman of the student directory compiittee, said she
has received several requests from
radio stations, companies, and other
groups asking for copies of the directory. After a discussion Dr. Albert Kirwan, faculty advisor to
SGA, suggested that the Assembly
not send copies of the directory to
such groups.
Question About Directory Requests
"I would be careful before sending
them out," Dean Kirwan said. "A
lot of companies would be glad to
pay for them, but it would plague
the students with a number of advertisements."
Elaine Moore suggested that SGA
appropriate some money to the
World Student Service Fund, but no
motion was made to that effect.
"We can show our interest in students of other lands," she said. "It
gives a student a chance to help
himself. Individuals are being soli'
cited on the campus, but organiza
tions are also responding."
Carter said that if SGA donated
money to WSSF, they would be
morally obligated to appropriate
money to other drives.
President Lawson said the next
meeting would be held Dec. 1.

then came the judge. War has set
the pattern on which man , builds
society," he said.
He described instances in the past
where we have attempted to take
the lessons of war and apply them.
He emphasized the fact that these
lessons were not applied fully en
ough to recognize the effects.
Western man must realize that
war does things to society and the
only way to attempt to stop war is
to study the wars of the past, the
Blazer lecturer said.
Prof. Wolf answered questions
from the audience following his talk.
When asked what effect the Hydrogen bomb would have, he said he
could not answer that question be
cause every time a new weapon was
invented people thought that the
world was coming to an end.
Whether or not the bomb will prove
to be as disastrous as claimed, he
could not say.
Speaker Is Author
Prof. Wolf is the author of "The
Emergence of the Great Powers,"
which is included in the "Rise of
Modern Europe" series published by
Harper and Brothers. He has also
written several other books including "France, 1815 to the Present."
At present he is working on a detailed biography of Louis XIV. He
gathered the material for this book
last year while in Paris on a
Fellowship.
Prof. Shelby T. McCloy, in introducing Prof. Wolf, described the
speaker as an "authority of European history and a magnetic speaker."
The Blazer lectures are made possible through a fund established by
Mr. and Mrs. Paul G. Blazer of Ashland. The next lecture will be given
on Dec. 16 by Dr. Rupert Vance who
will discuss "Problems of the New

SAS Accused
The State Alcoholic Beverage Control Board has announced citations
against the two establishments accused of violating state liquor-contrlaws by the Student Action Society last. week.
Jesse Wright, head of the SAS,
filed the petition last Friday against
the establishments, Robinson's Liquor Store and Crain's. Restaurant,
charging them with "permitting
gambling." First news reports on
the SAS action gave Andrew Wallace's name as one of the members
who filed the petition, but Wallace
has stated that he is no longer a
member and that he had no idea
he would be listed as a plaintiff,
i
In the suit, which never appeared
in court, SAS was described as an
organization dedicated to helping
local and state authorities in "securing evidence and obtaining convictions" against persons violating
gambling laws.
The suit stated that gambling devices were in operation at Robinson's and at Crain's on May 6 and
that an employee of Robinson's was
arrested, convicted, and paid a fine
in police court: that the gambling
device in Robinson's was confiscated
and ordered destroyed.
Police court records in Lexington
show that two persons were arrested
on May 8 for violating gambling
laws and that both were tried and
limed $100 and costs each. Complaints against each of the arrested
persons were signed by Wallace, who
was then a member of the SAS.

Kentucky Novelist Speaks
On Writer's Qualifications
By LOUIS DeROSETT
"A writer must be like a dragonfly and have a thousand eyes with
which to see everything that goes on

about him." Ben Lucien Burman,
novelist and literary critic, said last
week in a speech sponsored by the
English department and the Margaret I. King library.
Mr. Burman, a native Kentuckian
born in Covington, told a crowd of
students, teachers, and Lexington-ian- s
not to be discouraged if a
manuscript is returned a few times.
"My first novel, 'Minstrels in the
Mist,' was returned 43 times before
being accepted for publication,", he
said.
According to Mr. Burman a lot of
writers must go through a "garret"
period before their writing amounts
to anything. He stressed that the
successful writer must know the
people and region he is writing
about.
'Good Writer Can't Be Snobbish'
"You can't be a snob and a good
novelist," the speaker pointed out.
"If you want to be a writer you must

be

observant,

and understand

people.'
Mr. Burman told of his cvn cae
in the writing of the novel "Roooter
Crows for Day." where he spent
some time with the free French in
North Africa. He said that when
observing people, one must make a
composite of their characteristics in
drawing up the characters fur his
own writings. He cited an example
of the Ozark mountain preacher he
saw on the North African cicvert
playing a musical saw to a group of

completely "dumbfounded and uncomprehending natives."
Began As A Newspaperman
The novelist, who bean his writing career as a newspaperman, said
people of today are bored with bad
books, and that a successful buck
must be different.
"Don't be conventional", he said,
"and write like everyone else, but
be yourself, and develop your own
style."
Mr. Burman was asked. "How do
you know if your writing is good or
not?"
With a smile, he replietl. "You
just gotta' have faith."

The Frying Pan

Our Moral Code Lags Behind
The Realities Of Athletics
Isn't it about time we stopped playing see no
evil, hear no evil, speak no evil with college
athletics and started fating facts?
Back in the days when a sentimental warhling of
the Alma Mater brought tears to the eyes of graduates and undergraduates alike, the major college
sports football and basketball may have been
played purely for the glory of Old Siwash. That's
hardly the situation today.
Mpdern. youth has a realistic, at times, even materialistic approach to life. It matters not whether
our attitude stems from the depression of the '30's
and the current state of unending war or from
some other series of causes. It exists. It's natural
then for athletes who are generally just as bright
as the nest fellow to expect value returned for value
given.

An Idle Query:
Who Gets Loot?
One of the more interesting subjects for idle
speculation is the question of what Incomes of all
the money that's forked over by students and
faculty members each year in traffic fines! lodging
from personal experience and the sad tales of others,
the sum must be immense.
The secretary who graciously accepts the fines
doesn't get any of iL She's paid out of an annual
appropriation from the Student Government Association budget. Likewise the campus policemen
who give out tickets with such laudable abandon
don't reap any
gains. They draw their
salaries from the Maintenance and Operations department. The SGA budget doesn't show any indications of swelling from such lucrative operation.
Of course the University wouldn't le so lax as
to allow the money to just lie around doing nothing.
On the off chance that it is K ing around, however,
we have a suggestion.
Why not turn the traffic fine proceeds over to
SGA so the organization could have a budget that
might be able to stretch over some of its student
obligations. After all, SGA gets stuck with the bill
for the secretary.

they are a result of attempts to cover up other, less

By PAUL KNAPP

Speeding Traffic
Endangers Lives
Students literally take their lives in hand whenever they cross Rose Street anywhere from Euclid
Avenue on up past the men's dormitories. Heavy
traffic during morning and evening rush hours
makes it even more dangerous for unwary pedestrians.
Although there are definite speed limits for
Ixith residential areas and school zones, neither the
city police nor campus officers seem to Ix? even
trying to enforce them. Cars, buses, and occasional
trucks completely ignore the large number of walkk
ing students in this
area and often reach
speeds of 30, 40, and even 50 miles an hour.
The marked cross walk and signal light on Limestone at least give students some slight chance to
chxlgc speeding automobiles, although the situation
there is far from satisfactory. It may be that city
and campus police are so shorthanded that they
can't spare men to control traffic around the University. A minimum amount of protection could
be provided, however, by putting up a signal light
and crosswalk on Rose Street. Large warning
signs could Ix? put up too, announcing that the area
is a sch(x)l zone.
If something isn't done about the situation soon,
some unfortunate student may be seriously injured
or even killed Ixeause he failed to jump fast enough
to escape a recklessly speeding motorist.

This week has been set aside to commemorate
the 200th birthday of that indomitable frontiersman, George Rogers Clark. While paying tribute
to the famed Clark, we shouldn't forget that group
of fine old Southern aristocrats who proudly claim
lineal descent from him.
It is indeed a distinction to be related to one of
history's more colorful characters. Those who claim
this heritage should have the
privilege of installing white
"If'! colonial columns in front of their
modern colonial mansions.
By the way, it's a pretty well

The epitome in frustration was reached recently
at one of our leading educational institutions. Of
course, it couldn't happen here.
The situation concerned a certain intellectual
who keeps his billfold well padded by writing term
papers, English themes, and other research papers
for those not so well endowed as he is with brains
and patience. .
In order to keep his business from, being discovered by the teachers, he writes these papers in
accordance with the grades that the student hiring
him has received all along in the class. In other
words he writes a C paper for a C student, etc.
Of course for a D or E student, he writes a C
paper, hoping that the instructor will think it a
stroke of genius.

The pay for the services of this brain runs from
an E paper guaranteed for only 35 cents to
enormous undisclosed amounts for doctoral dissertations.
The frustration that was mentioned comes from
the occasional quirk of fate that causes one of the
instructors to place a lower grade on a paper than
the professional writer thought it was worth.
In these few instances the student comes back
to him demanding that he refund the difference
in the rate of the grade that he wanted and the
grade that he got on the paper. This causes no end
of professional embarrassment.
How frustrated can you get? He can't go over
to see the instructor of the course and say "I was
writing English themes around here when you were
in knee pants, and I know a C paper when I write
.
one."
Alxxit the only consolation he has is that he
can make a nice memorial plaque in remembrance
of the numerous Phi Beta Kappa's he has gotten

through school.

You only go to college 14 days a year, according
to some fancy figuring done by the student newspaper at Southeastern State College in Oklahoma.
A third of each 365 days is spent sleeping eight
hours a day. That leaves 243 days. Count off 52
Sundays, three months of summer vacation and half
an hour a day for lunch. That leaves 91 days.
Now subtract 52 Saturdays because only freshmen have Saturday classes, two weeks for Christmas vacation and the odd clays for Thanksgiving,
semesters. That brings it clown
Easter, and
to two weeks a year of actual class time.

fighting."
Rushing to the scene, the cop asked, "Which one
is your dad, sonny?"
"I don't know. That's what they're fighting
about."
