New plans for the Young Men's Christian

directors is primarily concerned that the YMCA

students is to serve the campus and campus organizations.

Accent On Comedy

Mayer Selznlck found the solution
at home.
The comedy calls for a valet

Unable to find a player with that
particular skill, Mrs. Selznick and

for an American actor.
Then the producer persuaded

It lias liren alleged that coeds

fin to college for tlie sole
finding husbands. This is, of course, an infamous canard, and
I uive fair warning that, small and sxmgy as I am, nnylxHly
who says such a dastardly tiling when I am around had better
be prepared for a sound thrashing!
(lirls go to college for precisely the same reasons as men do:
to broaden their horizons, to lengthen their vistas, to drink ut
the fount of wisdom. But, if, by pure chance, while a girl is
engaged in these meritorious pursuits, a likely looking husband
should op into view, why, what's wrong with that? Eh? Wliat'a
wrong with that?
The question now arises, what should a girl look for in a
husband. A great deal has lccn written on this subject. Some
say character is most important, some say background, some
pay apjiearanee, some say education. All are wrong.
The most iiiiortant thing bur none in a husband is health.
Though he lie handsome us Apollo and rich as Midas, what good
is he if he just lays around all day aceumulatiug bedsores?
The very first thing to do uion meeting a man is to make
sure he is sound of wind and limb. Hefore he has a chance to
sweet-tal- k
you, slap a thermometer in his mouth, roll back his
eyelids, yank out his tongue, rap his patella, palpate his thorax,
ask him to straighten out a horseshoe with his teeth. If he faild
these simple tests, phone for un ambulance and go on to the
next proscet.
If, however, he turns out to be physically fit, proceed to tho
second most imjxirtaiit requirement in a husband. I refer to a
sense of humor.
A man who can't take a joke is a man to be avoided. Thero
are several simple tests to find out whether your prosjiect can
take a joke or not. You can, for example, slash his tires. Or burn
his "Mad" comics. Or steal his switchblade. Or turn loose hia
raccoon. Or shave his head.
After each of these
pranks, laugh gaily and
shout "April Fool! If he replies, "Hut this is February nineteenth," or something equally churlish, cross him oil your lis'c
and give thanks you found out in time.
Hut if he laughs silverly and calls you "Little Minx!" jnri
him to the next test. Find out whether he is kindly.

Kappa Sigs Stage Western Party
"Have gun, will travel," rang
through the halls of the Kappa
Sifema house Saturday night, setting the mood for its Wild West
party. ,
To set the scene, one of the
recreation rooms was converted
into a realistic representation of
an old time Western Main Street.
Built from lengths of lumber and
the Kappa Sig
pledges, 'the Main Street scene
with overhanging roofs was actually big enough to walk through,"

Johnny Fitzwater, Kappa Sig social chairman, said.
The back room was converted
appropriately into a replica of a
western saloon, with a mirrored
bar, and various sized bottles filled
with Kool Aid.
Fitzwater said the men picked
up their dates Western style in a
ranch-wagoto carry the western
theme even further.
Fitzwater described the costumes
as very colorful.

"Some of the 'brothers' went all
out," he said,. I'aud bought $12
pistol sets."
The men were arrayed in various costumes ' from Mexican to
Texas rancher. Of course, there
was the usual fair share of desperados.
A few "bad guys" came to blows
with the "good guys" by trying to
show who was the fastest draw in
the West. But there must have
been a tie, because no new members were noticed in Boot Hill this

Prompt Action Is Needed

The significance of the recent
slaying of a Transylvania College coed
is not limited to Transylvania alone.
It has shocked, aroused, and
alerted not only the college on North
Broadway, but also the townspeople
of Lexington and the students of the
University of Kentucky.
Transylvania, whose 500 students
make it little more than a large
family, has assumed a melancholy
mood that cannot soon pass. Residents of the Gratz Park area, near
Transylvania, are organizing a citizens' protective association in an
effort to prevent further lawlessness
in the area. And UK students, while
expressing their sympathy for the victim's survivors and friends, have both
privately and publicly expressed concern for preventing any similar incident at the University.
Betty Gail Brown was found only
a few feet away from a bright fluores

cent lamp. Still, her death should
prompt University of Kentucky officials to seriously reconsider taking
immediate measures to properly light
the UK campus. If a student can be
killed tinder a fluorescent light at
Transylvania, it would seem that the
relative darkness that clouds our
campus is nothing less than an open
invitation to peeping toms, exhibitionists, sex perverts, rapists, and perhaps murderers.
Normally, the problem of properly
lighting the UK campus would be
channeled through the Kentucky General Assembly, which would appropriate funds for the project. But,
judging from past performances,
there is a possibility that the assembly
may act too late, or that it may not
act at all. Under the circumstances,
the University should soberly consider mobilizing emergency resources
and initiating action on its own.

What Marxism Seeks
We would like to call attention to
the following paragraphs excerpted
from a speech to the United Nations
General Assembly recently by British
Foreign Secretary Lord Home:
"When one side advertises its intention to destroy the way of life of
the other, then you cannot have true
collective security."
"Let us suppose that each side puts
500 airplanes into a bonfire and they
are burned. You can inspect that bonfire, but you cannot inspect what is
coming off the supply lines from the
factory. How do you know that the
next day another 500 airplanes or even
1,000 airplanes are not going to replace those that are burned?"
"The nations ought to be able to
combine to keep the peace. Why have
of the
they failed? Because
world is dedicated to destroy the way
of life of the other third, and because
of the world has elevated to
the status of dogma the exploitation
of civil strife as a means to an end.
I didn't invent that, Mr. President. It
comes straight out of the published

UK's Inadequate Lighting

To The Editor:
I am quite sure almost all UK
students are well aware of the tragic
death of a Transylvania coed last
Thursday night, Oct. 26. I would,
however, due to past performance,
be hesitant to state that our University of Kentucky administration knows
of it, or at least realizes all its implications.
