The poem contest ibeing conducted

through the columns of the Kernel by
Professor Grehan has met .with such
instantaneous response that these contests will be continued for an indefinite
length of time.
Early Thursday morning 28 poems
had already been submitted.
Mr.
Grehan states that the contest is revealing talent few suspected was on
the campus and for that reason he
wishes to give $2.00 each week to the
person whose poem is selected as the
best. The poems must ibe in by
Thursday of each week in order to be
eligible for next issue's contest. All
students are eligible and an indefinite
number may be submitted by each
person. The name of the winner, and
the winning poem will be published in
the Kernel. The person whose poem
is selected as the best may call on the
Managing
Editor and receive the
pirize money.
!The poems are judged by number
and not by name. The judges do not
know the name of the person whose
poem they select. Professor Noe and
Professor Farquhar are the judges for
next week. The winning poem will
appear in next Friday's Kernel

COMMENCEMENT
Commencement exercises this year
will be held during the week of examinations. In former years the sentiment has been that only those ' unfortunates" who graduate were unluckily
forced to remain for the baccalauerate
sermon and the commencement exercises.
To a certain degree, .students have
been justified in not remaining for
commencement. At that time of the
year the student begins to tire of the
long grind of school session. The
last few days are crowded with examinations and preparations for departure. Tension is high. Consequently,
it is difficult for one to remain another week to attend the commencement exercises.
which places
With the change,
commencement during the week of examinations, every student will have
the privilege of attending and witness- -

"a bunch of roughnecks and rowdies."
If one inadvertently let it be known
that he attended or liaJ attended thv
University, his auditors 'minediatcly
classified him as being a fit subject for
iron bars and prison stripes
It is true that the majority of students were not of th!s type, but it is
also true1 that a few who were cast
aspersion on the name of the University and the majority of the students.
The townspeople had no use for the
students, and it seems justly so, due
to the lawless actions of the few. As
a scat of learning, Kentucky held but
little rank at home or abroad.
This condition no longer exists
Little or no rowdyisim is noted on the
campus. The students deport them
selves at all times in an irreproachable
manner. Scholarship standards have
been raised, and a higher moral ton
tone pervades University life.
One no longer needs be ashamed to
"tell the world" that he attends the
University of Kentucky. The Univer
sity is being recognized in our own
state as well as in other states as a
progressive, clean school of high stand
ards. Graduates bf this school are be
ing recognized as men and women of
merit, and are able to secure better po
sitions from the recognition of this
fact by employers.
It is the duty of each student to
take a personal interest in the promo
tion of the good name of the University. Every action of the student has
a direct bearing upon public opinion
concerning our school. We are
judged by what we are, so let us be our
best selves.

ARE MODERN UNIVERSITIES
HOTBEDS OF UNBELIEF?
In the face of the statement that
modern universities are turning out
ranks and files of flappers and
many people add the opinion
that higher education is making infidels and atheists of the younger generation. The argument is inconsistent.
An unbeliever is always a person of
sparkling intellect and keen wit. If
our college men and women are to be
charged with one offense, at least they
are involuntarily cleared of the other.
When people determine the meaning
of the terms belief and unbelief, the
time will be more ripe for separating
the sheep from the goats. These words,
after all, are mooted terms and excellent sources of dispute for those who
do not think alike. Conventional middle age thinks youth atheistical, and
youth believes old age narrow and
intolerant. And so it goes.
There is one thing that university
students have learned, and that .is fearlessness. Where there is religion, it
is reverenced by them. Where there is
sham, it is denounced by them. None
are so quick as they to detect lack of
sincerity.
The conception of life and religion in
the student mind is radically different
from that of the former generation.
God is not a distant Spirit to be worshipped on Sunday and forgotten on
week days. The despotic Yahweh
of the whirlwind and the tempest is
one with Zeus and Jupiter. The God
of the youth of today is a God whose
handiwork is nature and whose revelation is in the orbits of the sun, stars
and planets. The religion of the youth
of today is based on the teachings of
Jesus of Nazareth. Aribitry dogmas
and doctrinal tenets 'hold minor places
among the majority of university students. The majesty of God as He
is revealed in nature and in the commonplace, and the magnetic personality of Him who was lifted up and
cake-eater- s,

IN

KENTUCKY
Since time immemorial, man has
honored
custom, passed tradition
down thru the ages and has held sacred and preserved inviolate each line
and each requirement of tradition and
custom.
This year the very old custom, hair
cutting, was abolished because it did
not any longer blend with the finesse
of campus life. In its place was in
augurated the Freshman cap.
Sad to relate this form of hazing
has not been taken seriously, in fact,
few of the Freshmen are wearing their
caps. This would not have to be
mentioned if the Freshmen really had
the spirit of the University at heart.
But they have not. Instead they have
created among themselves an idea
that they are being humiliated by the
upper classmen. This of course is impossible, for the average Freshman
in the eyes of the upper classmen
has not yet reached the sitage where
humiliation may be obtained.
The Freshmen .have been asked
kindly to, wear these caps. Some still
refuse, logic has proven of ino use.
Most of them are too dumb to understand it, but .thank heaven there is
one voice 'which speaks a language
which all of them understand, namely
the paddle, and we recommend that it
be uncovered and administered' freely
to those whose idea of school spirit
does not coincide with the code of
ethics set by the upper class men for
them.
We have witnessed some of the in
games and we were
astounded at the skill and agility displayed by some of the players. They
really neared perfection in awkard- and inaccuracy. So promi-nii ess,
were these 'traits that we will pick
a mythical
team and' recommend that 'they hold a telegraphic
meet with Ed Dansforth's selection.
In our mind there would be no
doubt as to the outcome of such a
game. The team:
Forwards Sneed Yager, John Dun- don; center, Ed Fitch; guards Russ
Vanzant, Sam Hillen.

We learn with much regret the fact
that Gov. Fields votoed that part of
the University appropriation bill which
provides for the Chemistry Department and for the Experiment Station.
This situation is not a new experience
for the students of the University, but
rather one of long standing for the
past three gubernatorial terms. Stan
ley could not see fit; Morrow could
not conscientiously pass the bill, and
the present Governor has vetoed it
without any apparent reason. All of
which leads us to believe, that Judge
Mulligan 'Was right when he wrote,
And politics is the damndest in
Kentucky."
We have noticed, during the past
week, that one of our great athletes
