Those students who have

The students trying out for SuKy
are similar to pledges in a fraternity or sorority. Their work during
the tryout period determines
whether or not they shall be accepted for permanent membership
in SuKy.
Activities which these students
perform during the fall and winter
quarters are, among others: selling drinks and food at the football and basketball games, designing card displays to be used by
freshmen in the cheering sections,
and making plans for Sadie Hawkins week in November.
SuKy President William O. Las-li- e,
while inviting all interested
students to sign up for this fall and

President H. L. Donovan submitted his quarterly report to the
Board of Trustees. Excerpts from
the report follow:
"Let me review for you why the
University came up short on living
arrangements for its students. The
state of Kentucky has never seen
fit to erect dormitories at the University with the exception of one
small dormitory (Patterson Hall)
for girls, which was erected about
fifty years ago at the expense of
the state. Two other residence halls
for girls and three dormitories for
men have been built on a
plan. The rents from the
students have amoritized their cost.
The University has heretofore depended largely on the community to
house its students. One of the lessons of the war has taught us that
we shall have to erect a number of
dormitories for men and women,
and apartment houses for married
students, if we are to accommodate
students who desire to enter the
University in the future. Never
again should we be caught short on
housing faculties,

Kernel staff will lie scheduled sometime this
month, the lime and date to Ie announced later.
And rememlier, important e is well as interest must le considered in judgment of news
pi a v.
I here is always the plaint "But my story
didn't get in." The Kernel promises no one
that his story will apear in any certain issue.
Iidiiois are instructed according to best
piactite to get in all the stories possible,
licit lictjiicnily there is more news than there
is pate. Here agavi the imjxirtance and interest aie considered. Contrary to what you may
have heard. tye isn't rublxr and it most certainly doesn't shrink or stretch. Something has
to go, and it's up to the editors to decide.
'1 he Kernel reserves the right
to edit all
stoiies as it sees fit. Often this results in the
omission of news which someone thinks important. Perhaps the story couldn't lie crammed
into the space. It's Inner to have a story that
cut than to have none at all. The
editors try to omit the least itnxn t ant fatts.
Ofien students write letters to the editor.
Vmieiimes these letters aren't printed. More
dun i hey apear on the editorial page under
tin title "Post Office Box."
I he Kernel piints letters which do not agree
villi the opinions of its etlitors, but they aie
opinions of students or fatuity and they have
a light to apear in print. How anyone could
i the
idea that The Kernel agrees with all
opinions which are written in to it, we do not
know. But this accusation has liecn made.
I he Kernel will prim all letters which arc
submitted to it with the lollowing reservations:



lengih: 3.10 words. (2) Letters
must be signed by the author. ( I his docsn t
mean signing someone c lsr's name as a prac- tical joke.) Whenexer it is rectiested that the
name of the a.i.ho, be withheld. The Kernel
be glad to do so. but it must know who
wrote the letter. Anon
