The campus, which for a month or
more has been as silent and deserted
as a cotton plantation on the eighth
of August, has again taken on its
customary activity. Eds and co-eonce more throng the walks and cars
whiz around the sharp curves of the
campus driveways. Chatter is heard
in the corridors, whispers in the li
brary, and signals on Stoll field.

The activity mentioned began last
Thursday, which was the first day of
"freshman week." Great idea, that
of having "freshman week." For the
frosh it is a distinct kindness. While
watching the youngsters being led
around in sections by patrenal-look-in- g
upperclassmen, we had a mean
and secret desire to see them wandering around th campus lost in the fog
as we once were. "Freshman week"
is the result of th2 growing tendency
to regard freshmen as human beings.
Meanwhile the thump of the booted
ball and an occasional booted player
is heard on the gridiron. So far our

week the Wildcat mentor has drilled
the men on the defensive phase and
they have improved a little but still
are weak in checking the onrush of
the opposition.
The probable startine backfield
will be composed of either Gilb or

GAINS DISTINCTION
War Department Designates U.

LAST

YEAR

ALSO

For the second consecutive year
the University of Kentucky has been
designated a "distinguished college"
by the War Department of the federal government. This honor was conferred upon the military department
and the university following an inspection of the university R. O. T. C.
unit last spring.
Every year about thirty per cent
of the colleges in the United States
having senior R. O. T. C. combat
units are declared exceptionally efficient by the war department
The
factors considered in rating the coU
leges are as follows: support of institution, facilities for practical and
theoretical instruction, care of equipment, support of faculty and student
body, academic credit given, relative
enrollment of basic and advanced
courses, appointments to reserve
corps, and certificates of eligibility.
The University of Kentucky is one
of thirty-si- x
colleges and institutions
to receive this honor. Officials of the
military department of the university
say that this is the highest honor
that can be conferred upon a R. O. T.
C. unit.
As a result of gaining this
distinction every cadet will wear a
blue star on his right sleeve just
above the R. O. T. C. shield. Colleges
winning the distinguished rating are
entitled to have five per cent of their
advanced course men designated as
