Six Make Requests
lt
Houses
For
On 'Fraternity Row'
UK-Bui-

Six fraternities have applied for
houses on the proposed "fraternity
row" to be built by the University,
Frank D. Peterson, UK comptroller,
said this week.
School officials are investigating
the financial status of the fraternities to determine if they are qualified to enter into the arrangement,
Mr. Peterson said. The investigation will take about a month, he
said.
The six fraternities listed by the
comptroller are Lambda Chi Alpha.
Kappa Sigma, Phi Sigma Kappa, Pi
Kappa Alha, Sigma Chi. and Phi
Delta Theta.
"The University probably will build
the houses for those that manage to
work out the final arrangements, but
it appears now that the project cannot be enlarged later to include fraternities which may decide to ask
for a structure after the others are
completed," Mr. Peterson said.
Houses To Cost $110,000 Each
Construction of from one to eight
fraternity houses was authorized by
the University Board of Trustees at
its September meeting. Under a
plan announced at that time the
cost of the buildings, approximately
$110,000 each, would be defrayed by
revenue bonds to be amortized over
a period of 30 years.
The new fraternity houses would
be leased to individual fraternities
after their completion. Rent paid
by the fraternities would be sufficient to pay interest on the bonds,
liquidate the debt, pay insurance
and maintain the buildings.
After the bonds are paid off, the
plan provides that the same fraternities would continue to operate the
houses at a greatly reduced cost.
Each house would accommodate 48
students.
Mr. Peterson said that the University launched the fraternity row
project "because both fraternities
and sororities have aided materially
in the overall UK housing program."
The comptroller, who serves also
as secretary of the Board of Trustees, emphasized that the fraternity
row plan was not proposed until
after a $1,900,000 dormitory to house
365 men was planned and money
secured for its construction.
The Scott Street barracks, which

now house more than 300 men, were
described by Mr. Peterson as "antiquated, dilapidated, and disgrace
to the campus." He explained that
the barracks will be abandoned for
housing after construction of the
new men's residence hall.
Mr. Peterson also recalled that the
fraternity housing proposal was not
suggested until after plans were
completed and accepted for a new
dormitory to house 304 women students. Application has been made
to the federal government for a loan
with which to construct this women's hall, he said.

one of the Cabinet members. He favors Bear for

The editor himself, being a rational man, would insist upon coming out for Stevenson.
As you can see, it'd be almost impossible for us to
ever agree on one man. Then too, if we did find
someone to support there'd be another problem.
Some people out in the state have the erroneous
idea that everything the Kernel prints is dictated
by the University administration. They also think
the administration takes its orders from Frankfort.
Of course that's not true, but it sure puts us in a

Almost every other college paper in the country
has come out in favor of a presidential candidate.
We'd like to do it tot), hut it's just an impossibility.
Since we have no publisher to dictate policies, the
selection of a candidate would have to be done by
the staff. That would pose a monstrous problem.

Think of all the potential Fhi Beta Kappa lads
who could use a few dollars every now and then
to help pay for food, clothing, and shelter items
that aren't covered by hardly any of the existing
scholarships for brightness. That's just one

really want to relieve themselves, UK offers a host
of other worthy projects.
No one would scream with anguish if a friend
of the University decided to endow a dormitory
or two. And UK's teachers would probably be
overjoyed if their paychecks suddenly started covering their grocery bill. Of course the University
could always use a few odd classrooms. To start
with, donations might be accepted for new chemistry, physics, commerce, and psychology buildings. When these are completed, the workmen
could walk across campus and start on a new administration building.
No, there's nothing wrong with handing out subsistence money to athletes, even if it's superficially

'Dear Local Board, ' The Lament
Of A Poet Who 'd Like To Serve

The Knappsack by Paul Knapp

I am writing this in answer
To a letter that was st nt
By mail to me the other day,
Signed by the president;
It's not that I object to your greetings
Or that I'm trying not to go,
I just thought I'd write and tell you
About some things you ought to know.
My feet have bothered me for years,
They're flat as they can be,
And my eyes are crossed so badly
That it's very hard for me to see;
My teeth are slowly falling out,
It won't take long I fear,
But then this wouldn't worry me
If I could only hear.
My stomach's acting up again,
I might as well confess,
I must be careful what I eat,
There's ulcers there I guess;
And my back is nearly killing me,
It doesn't help it much,
For my legs to be so broken-u- p
That I have to use a crutch.
It was just the other evening
That I heard a fellow say
He didn't think that I was bright,
Or should not be anyway;
'Cause he'd known us all for ages,
And throughout our family name,
He could count at least a dozen
That were proved to be insane.
Wish that I could heal this cough,
It kinda worries me,
But I guess I'm not the only one
That's afflicted with T.B.;
And I'm really to be thankful
To be one of those among

The Tragic Saga Of A Dethroned Queen
had been forced to build two extra fireplaces to
provide mantels to hold them.
She could still remember being chosen "Miss
Christmas Seal" in her freshman year. And along
with the affectionate title of "Miss TB " she had
enough seals to paper the entire meeting room of
the sorority house.

And then her first fraternity queen trophy. It had
been a beautiful evening when she walked up the
aisle to receive the title, "Dream Boat of
Afterwards the boys even serenaded her with their
Dream Boat song," "Rho Rho Rho Your Boat."
Her eyes paused on the one trophy she cherished
most of all, even though she'd forgotten when she
had acquired it. It was topped by a figure of Venus
standing on the shoulders of Diana standing on the
shoulders of Minerva who was scratching herself.
The simple inscription read: "Universitas
Mens Agitat Womens."
When she finished the inspection of her many
trophies, she was more sad than ever. What else

The sorority had wanted her to win this contest
even more than any of the others she had waltzed
away with so easily. The girls, after a great deal of
discussion, had decided to take the Animal Husbandry trophy, sink it in the back yard, and then
fill it up with scented water. Why, they'd planned
to be the first sorority on campus with a swimming
pool all their own.
Now her sisters wouldn't even speak to her, even

There was nothing left but to end it all.

And I'm handicapped you see,
There's 12 here in the family
