Letters To The Editor
Editor. Kentucky Kernel:
The article on the present basket-bfl- ll
seating plan appearing in last
week's Kernel hit the nail on the
head when it stated that the "early
birds at the Kentucky basketball
Fames definitely haven't been getting the worm."
The seating plan Is superior to
that of last year as it eliminates
confusion and leaves no spots of
seats scattered here ancHhere
throughout the cymnasium. " The
trouble lies not in the plan itself
but in the way In which it is not
followed correctly by the men who
Land out the seating stubs at the

men on the one side of the east
gate started handing out stubs for
section three on the left. The men
handing out stubs to the students
coining through the other side of
the gate did not hand out stubs
for section three on the right but
instead began doling out seats for
section four. The result was that
the fans coming In at 7:30 p.m.
found themselves sitting up In the
rafters while, much to their chagrin, the students arriving fifteen
and twenty minutes later sat in
the much to be desired seats down
in section three on the right, the
section where the earlier arrivals
should have been sitting all along.
The athletics department is to be
congratulated on the seating plan
which they have gone to so much
effort to arrange. Careful planning,
however, must be executed correctly
if perfection is to be achieved.
