Hrinjr In Scrap
For The Big Scrap



Group Collecting
Most Scrap Metal


Senior Story No.
It happened

to an




upperclass-ma- n!



Joining with other state newspapers, the Kernel will sponsor a
rcrap drive on the campus October
9 to 27.
All University organizations
be drafted to assist In the collecting
of scrap metals on the campus and
in fraternity and sorority houses.
Tentative plans for the campaign
include the publishing of
figures on poundage turned in by
the various organizations. A trophy
will be awarded by the Kernel to
the organization having the largest
poundage per capita enrollment.
Each organization will be entitled
to one vote for every ten pounds of
scrap turned in to determine how
the money realized on the total
sales shall be donated. Votes may
be cast for any welfare or charitable
group, and the entire proceeds will
be donated to that group receiving
the largest number of votes.
Srr today's editorial, "Britig Scrap
for Ihr Big Strap."
Should the University as a whole
achieve the largest poundage per
capita enrollment of any college in
the state, the $250 prize being offered in the state campaign would
be added to the proceeds to be donated to charity. Individual prizes
of $100 each are being offered by
the state to the Kentucky girls'
and boys' organizations having the
largest poundage per capita enrollment and to the Kentucky individual having the largest poundage.
Organizations wishing to contribute scrap should call the Kernel
office to report. Maintenance and
operations trucks will pick up the
scrap, weigh it, and deliver it to
the downtown depot, where each
group will be credited individually
for all donations. Though the drive
will not be formally launched until
October 9. all organizations are re
quested to begin gathering immed
A poster will be placed in the
Great Hall of the Union building to
advertise 'daily contributions and

the mounting total.
Highlight of the scrap drive will
be a Kernel sponsored dance Saturday, October 17 in the Bluegrass
room of the Union building. Com'
plete plans for the affair, and the
orchestra will be announced later.

It's a senior blunder!
He dashed into the basement
of McVey hall, one minute before class time. Confidently he
stepped into the elevator and
pressed the button. Confidently
he stepped off the elevator and


dashed for his classroom.
Strangely enough, it was filled
with freshmen, so he tried another one, but it was filled likewise.
Ju;t then he saw Dr.
Downing come out of Professor
Parquhar's office. Totally bewildered, he hunted up the janitor to see why freshman classes
had been moved into all the
senior rooms.
Ten minutes later he very
meekly entered his own classroom. In his haste he had stepped off the elevator one floor
too soon.

by Ab Kirwan and his unruly Kentucky Wildcats as they awaited the
