The Frying Pan

Little Girls Aren 9t Exactly
As Mother Goose Proclaims
These initial suspicions that the real article
doesn't quite jibe with her advanced billing come
close to downright certainty in the mind of a fairly
alert male by the time he gets to high school. After
graduation, the perfidy and plain contrariness of the
female become even more obvious. Additional
suspicions as to the true nature of woman are
brought to light by mature experience and conversations with married comrades.
Being aware of the general situation, we were
highly gratified the other day when we ran across
a chemical analysis of woman. We present it with
the earnest suggestion that it be adopted by the
nation's schools in place of the misleading doctrine
that is currently being taught.
The analysis:
The average human female is made up of 30 to 40
teaspoons of salt, eight to 10 gallons of water,
enough lime to whitewash a small garage, an
d
amount of glycerine capable of exploding a
bomb, . enough gluten to make 2,200 match
heads, sufficient fat to produce Several pounds of
nail, sulphur enough to
soap, iron for a
pound of

sugar.
Men of the future have a right to know the truth.
of sugar is not nearly enough to
A quarter-pounsweeten up such a mixture of salt, water, lime,
glycerine, glue, phosphorus, grease, iron, and

Just what females are made of is something that
occupies the interest of most men sooner or later.
Many of us, going on information supplied back in
our more impressionable kindergarten days, still
think of the fair sex in terms of the misleading
rhyme that asserts: Sugar and spice and everything
nice; that s what little girls are made of.
That clever little bit of propaganda goes almost
uncliallenged during the grade school period despite a few signs that all isn't as it's painted. Like
the sweet little chick who giggles delightedly when
teacher gives a switching to some hapless male who
brought a snake into the classroom. Or the sweet
one's innocent sister who deliberately wears pigtails just so they can be pulled occasionally or
howls
dunked into an inkwell and then
to teacher when some poor male does what comes
naturally.

Patients Need Quiet
Lexington city officials have informally asked
the Kernel to enlist the aid of University students
in cutting down the noise that constantly disrupts
the rest and convalescence of patients in near-bGood Samaritan hospital.'
Due to its unusually fine medical facilities, Lexington is known as the medical center of eastern
Kentucky. Patients from communities hundreds of
miles away are brought here for treatment. Many
of these people are in critical or serious condition
and need almost absolute quiet if they are to have
even a chance for recovery.
Traffic on Limestone accounts for at least 90 per
cent of the noise around Good Samaritan and we're
certain UK students don't deliberately contribute
to the total. It may help, however, if all of us, particularly those who live near the hospital, would
remember the need for silence.

Our Readers Speak: Criticizing Spprts Editor On Gruner
Dear Editor:

his own
but I think it unfair and unsportsmanlike for the Kernel sports editor to dig
even deeper into the past and bring up things the
present student body does not know and can not
refute.
It might interest Mr. Easterling (although he
should have found out before he wrote his article)
sentence,
that, referring to his second-to-laBunky's leg was shot with 12 shots of novocain that
Saturday. Of course he was "ready to play." With
that deadening they could have cut his leg off and
he wouldn't have felt a thing! By Tuesday that
deadening had worn off and he hadn't had one hour
of sleep since Friday night. Of course he didn't feel
like he was ready to take part in practice. An admission of this is the fact that after Bunky has his
leg "fixed" in Louisville, he is to send the bill to
the University.
Yours, for a
Kernel . . . hoping this criticism is taken in the constructive way it is intended.
mis-doing-

I am writing this . . . because through my high
school and college days I worked on school papers
and thus feel I know some of your problems . . .
I believe one function of any paper is to foster its
school not to tear down and destroy.
I am referring to this "noble" passage about
"Bunky" Gruner which appeared in Tom Easter-ling- 's
"Sports Sidelights' in last week's Kernel:
Harold "Bunky" Cruner has issued a statement
that he was misquoted by two Louisville papers
concerning tlie recent flare-u- p
over outside aid to
UK football players. During Bunky s high school
dayi it was tlpse same two papers tliat made him
the most sought after player ever to come out of
Louisville. The publicity given Gruner by these
two papers made it possible for Cruner to nail down
a starting berth on his high school team without
trying. When Gruner tried the same thing here at
UK fie found out that he would have to work to
break into the starting linc-uIt seems to us when
a player says he is ready to play on Saturday afternoon lie should be ready to take part in practice the
following Tuesday. Two or three times during the
LSU game we noticed Bunky warming up on the
sidelines."
I think the newspapers dug to the bottom to
make Bunky feel ill at ease (partly, admittedly, by

our team physician, Dr. J. Ralph Angelucci.
"In Gruner's case, he voluntarily received two
such shots the morning of the LSU game. The idea
was to speed recovery so he could practice that
next week, not so he could, play in th
