Wild cans rked By
Rupps Meet Double Trouble;
Bow To Detroit, 34-2After
Defeat In Michigan State Tilt


-Red" Hagan, who scored 14
points against Michigan State
Saturday night, was again defeated last nirht by the I nj versity mt Detroit's fast passing aggregation, 34-in the Naval
Armory. In all, the flashy Louisville forward' ammassed 16 points,
making the only tfildrat field
goals for the fin 32 minutes of
the struggle.
Detroit's fast passing aggregation
opened up in the first minutes and.
after Kentucky took a a to 0 lead,
led all the way. Led by Kolibar,
who constantly intercepted passes
by Opper and Rouse, the Northerners presented an impregnable defense.
In fact. Hagan was the Kentucky
team last night, as he did practically all the scoring and was the defensive strongarm for the Rupps.
At the half. Detroit held to a 20
to 12 advantage.
Spurting in Ihe final period, the
Detrolters Increased their lead rap
idly as the end neared. Curtis and
Thompson not only were unable to
score, but were unable to receive
the ball but few times.
The entire Detroit team, regarded as underdog, played its most
sparkling ball of the season. However. Captain Laske and Kolibar. a
substitute, deserve praise for their
herculean efforts.
Eight points was the nearest the
Rupptnen were able to approach
the entire final cession. Coach Rupp
used numerous substitutes in an
endeavor to discover a successful
offensive combination, but all to no
avail. Tonight the 'Cats were clearly outclassed.

Meeting Consisted Of Series

submitted to the University senate
at their meeting at 4 p. m. Monday, January 10, in McVey halL it
was announced by Dr. Leo Cham-berli- n.
With Pres. Frank L. McVey, head
of the senate presiding, the meeting consisted of a series of four reports. The committee, headed by
Prof. Niel Plummer, was composed
of 30 of the younger members of
the faculty.
Drafted and submitted to President McVey last summer, the reports have been mimeographed and
presented to the senate for consideration.
The four sections of the drafted
statements were: faculty ethics and
duties, a program for stimulating
student and faculty research, a report on faculty University relations,
and a statement concerning the
sale of duplicate material to students.

The Team Speaks;




University's football team met yesterday and
for the return of assistant coaches Porter
Giant and loin Gorman, it provided the first bullet of enthusiasm shown by any organization since the two popular
football leathers resigned. Now that some unrest is in evidence, The Kernel feels that speculation upon the gridiron
sil nation is apropos.
Within the last few weeks the University has lost two
valuable members of the varsity coaching staff, and in view
of the disastrous 1937 football season, no one should be surprised that there should be considerable speculation upon
three questions:
Why did these coaches leave the University?
What was wrong with the team last year, if anything was
W hat tan the Student Body and the Athletic Council do
NOW to strengthen the University in the football wars of
the future?
The Kernel does not presume to offer itself as a seer
which, by a few mystical generalities or perchance a
word, can solve an athletic problem presenting the
many ramifications that are found when a losing team has
floundered along its unhappy way. However, The Kernel
can joint out that there is "talk" among the students and
alumni, and that the Athletic Council, the duly responsible
body should be cognizant of this, and that, in view of the
fact that Athletic Director and Head Coach C A. Wynne is
soon to present his outline of plans for the future to this
bmly, the Council should endeavor to act more wisely and
with more caution than it has ever done in the past.
When, or if, the Council uncovers any facts which necessitate any changes in policy or personnel in the Athletic department. The Kernel feels that the facts should be given to
the Student Cody, perhaps even at called meeting of the
Athletic association in Memorial hall. The student body
.would like to know just what is happening in its association,
and if by chance it should be found that blame lies partly
with the student body, then it certainly should be informed.
This is no time for an inflamatory attitude toward our
own problems. The times are too propitious for the achievement of a tremendous amount of good for the University
and the Commonwealth which it represents. The challenge
first must be faced by the Athletic Council in its charting of
a future course, in its choice of replacement in the depleted
coat hi ng siaff, and in its acceptance of a new attitude of
with the student body.
Until this Council has had opportunity to act, has chosen
to accept the Student Body or exclude it from its confidence,
The Kernel is willing to "watch and wait." After that, considering always the best interests of all concerned, it shall
thoose its course according to the contingencies.

the audience.
First in the three part program

After a brief intermission the vio
