U. K. Library Boasts Collection

Of Rare and Valuable Books
By Sara Elvove
The library of the University
although unusually small, has managed to place on Its shelves books of
every description, type, subject and
color conceivable. There has arrived lately a Portugese grammar.
The most Interesting collection of
books, however, are those books
which, on account of their rarity
and value, are separately shelved
in a small bookcase located behind
the desk of the librarian. On .account of the value and fragility of
these books, the bookcase Is kept
under lock and key, but the key may
be obtained for the asking.
One of the interesting books to
be found there Is a small directory
for the city of Lexington for the
years 1838 and 1839. The book itself
Is small, much handled and

the very appropriate slogan: "In

Seventh Annual Institute to
Convene at University Under Direction of Ezra Gillis;
Uij? Delegation Expected.
The seventh annual Institute for
Registrars will be held at the University the week of April 1 to 6,
under the direction of Ezra L. Glllls.
Last year there were representatives present from 20 states, and an
equally large representation is expected for the meeting this spring.
Five regular courses will be presented at the institute, each course
meeting dally. They are as follows:
"Principles of University and College Administration," by President
Frank L. McVey; "Problems of College Organization and Administration," Prof. F. W. Reeves of the College of Education; "A Course In
Elementary Statistics For Registrars," by C. C. Ross, professor of
educational psychology; "The Professional Functions of the Registrar," by Ezra L. Glllls, registrar;
"The Technique of the Registrar's
Office," by the officer of admissions
and the recorder of the University.
The first period probably will be
devoted to registration and to a general meeting, when President McVey will make a short address of
Fuller details of the program will be announced later.
The Institute was inaugurated at
the University and is held here annually. The courses include discussions of problems of administration
and the work of the registrar. Former meetings have been attended by
college presidents, registrars, deans,
and graduate students. There is no
charge for tuition, and the only expenses Incurred by those in attendance are their living expenses.

Afternoon in Men's Gym.
The University Philharmonic orchestra, under the direction of Prof.
C. A. Lampert, will give the fourth
of a series of concerts Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock in the Men's gymnasium.
The orchestra has appeared several times this year and has met
with approval each time. It has increased In size as well as in instrumentation since lost season and is
now capable of playing any class
of music. Many telegrams were received recently when the orchestra
played over WHAS, the Courier-Journ- al

A few weeks ago the boys from
New Orleans began their activities

victory over Kentucky in one of the
roughest games of the season. Dees

the tide of defeat as ten husky
Wildcats entered the brawl. Today
the conflict will rage on a neutral
court. Spectators will not crowd the
sidelines and the floor will be regulation size. At Tulane the fans sat
close to the court. The court was

Due to Coach Mauer's proposal,
ten Wildcats, instead of eight, were
allowed to make the trip to the

Ole Miss to throw basketballs over

winning the championship. Two

the championship. Georgia Is expected to defeat Auburn in the first
round and to renew her old feud
with Kentucky. These teams have
never failed to meet in the Southern Tournament. Kentucky has lost
to the Bulldogs only once. The

against the North Carolinans, onetime conquerors of the Wildcats by

With the exception of the state

the month.
Although the social calendar is
overcrowded with "hops" and
"brawls" at this time of the year,
it seems that some sort of competitive indoor sport should be adopted
in order to alleviate the strain of
scholastic burdens. Of course sorority houses are often the scenes
of extremely interesting struggles,
but these combats are not usually
subject to public exhibitions, al

though "lovers" cups are frequently

The problem of college athletics is a many sided problem and
In a great many universities and colleges a rock upon which the
alumni, faculty and student body split. However, at the University of Kentucky athletics have been kept in. their proper place
and never have threatened to supercede the primary mission of a
a university or college. There are. of course, a few who think that
too much attention is paid to athletics. Another few think that
not enough attention is paid to athletics. The large majority of
Alumni, friends, faculty and student body, however, believe that
athletics at the University of Kentucky are on the proper plane
and are satisfied with the condition as it exists.
There is one matter, however, that has brought forth a great
deal of criticism from a great number of Alumni. That Is the
failure of the University of Kentucky to attract the greater portion of outstanding athletes from Kentucky. Alumni accuse the
University of letting these outstanding athletic lights drift into
the teams of other universities and colleges. This is a condition
that Alumni can only blame themselves for.
The Alumni Office and the Athletic Department of the University receive letters almost every day from interested Alumni
telling of some outstanding athlete that should come to the University of Kentucky and wear the blue and white. Now the Athletic Council always is glad to have this information and in its
limited way tries to influence the prospects to come to the University of Kentucky. When a particular athlete is persuaded to
go to some other institution the alumnus who suggested him is loud
and long in his criticism of the University and athletic authorities.
The one who should have influenced that athlete to come to
the University is the alumnus in his own home town. He knows
the prospect, knows his capabilities, his financial condition, and
his preference as to the university or college. He knows his parents and knows best the avenue of approach that will influence
that particular man to dnter the University off Kentucky. In
several communities in Kentucky are Alumni organizations of other universities and colleges. These organizations interest themselves in obtaining suitable athletic material for their own institutions and do all In their power to influence athletes to enroll
there. Consequently while some of our interested but more or
less inactive Alumni are writing criticism to the University, alumni
from some other institution have made off with a prize athlete.
College athletics is a necessary part of a university or college.
Successful teams are the desire of every alumnus of every institution. Kentucky so far has been far behind the place she should
hold. This has resulted from a shortage of athletic material.
At this time each year the outstanding football, basketball, baseball or track man Is considering where he shall take his higher
education. For the most part they are not sure where they want
to go or will go. Now Is the time for Alumni of the University
of Kentucky to do their part in the building of a successful football, basketball or baseball team. Expend the same amount of
energy in personal appeal to the prospect that would be expended
lh criticising the system here and we venture to say that there
