gardeners in the country, sent a rep

will be made for campus improvement. These will be submitted to the

It is here and here it is spring fever. It produces
a sluggish, tired feling that is at once ambitionless,
and a check to good work. When it becomes prevalent upon the campus there is a let-u- p in all
things but one, and that thing is loafing.
None ever become hardened enough to be entirely
free from infection. It is, as the logician would say,
casually connected with green grass, with the smell of
the earth as its surface drvs after a gentle rain.

Kentucky. No institution ever needed intelligent attention in this field more than this instituion. Buildings are
in bad repair; ground's are allowed in many instances to
become unsightly. Class rooms need reappointment
and refurnishings and the entire campus needs general
overhauling. With the new era of activity into which
the University is entering, the work of no man in the
clerical forces is more imperative than that of the Buildings and Grounds Inspector.
