The United Students and Constitutionalist Parties will begin plans
this week and next week for the
May Student Government Association elections, presidents of both
parties said this week.
Henry Neel, president of the
United Students and a representa
tive in the SGA, said his party
would meet this afternoon to lay its
first plans.
Don Richardson, Constitutionalist
president, said the Constitutionalists
would meet sometime next week.
Both Richardson and Neel said
they expect to announce candidates
and party platforms earlier this semester than in the past. Last semester neither party selected its
candidates until just before the
deadline for filing.
No Candidates Selected
Although the presidents said
neither party has yet selected any
candidates, four students were
mentioned as possible candidates
for SGA president. The United Students may nominate Carter Glass,
Neel, or Carroll Hastings, while Jess
Gardner has been mentioned as a
Constitutionalist possibility.
Gardner is an
while the others are now in office.
Neel said he did not believe the
United Students would present a
platform "with anything particularly
strong in it, unless we have more
student support." He said he expected to detarmine the amount of
student support by reaction to action
taken on the book exchange proposed
by United Student representative
Pete Carter.
Nothing Yet Decided
"We want to give the students a
platform we can carry out, and if
we have points that don't have stu
dent support, we can't very well put
them over," Neel stated.
Nothing has been decided about
the Constitutionalist Party platform,
Richardson said.
Richardson said approximately 12
fraternities and six sororities are
members of the Constitutionalist
Party, an
organization.

Tate To Talk
On 'Criticism'
Before Series
Allen Tate, professor of English

at the University of Minnesota, will
be the first speaker of the semester

in the Literary, Speech, and Dra-- .
matic Lecture Series. He will speak
at 8 p.m. in the Guignol Theater.
Mr. Tate's subject for this address
will be "Is Literary Criticism Possible?" The following day he will
speak before a class in creative writing at 3:00 p.m. in Room 111, McVey
Hall, on the subject, "What Makes
Fiction Credible?"
Born in Clark County, Ky., Mr.
Tate is the author of several volumes of criticism, biography, and
verse and is often called "the laureate of the Lost Cause" by virtue of
his "Ode to the Confederate Dead."
This sympathy with the South
prompted his biographies of Stonewall Jackson and Jefferson Davis.
He has been associated prominently with the Fugitive Group at Vanderbilt University, with the New
Humanists of the 1930's, and with
the New Critics of today. He has
also at various times been resident
lecturer at New York University,
Princeton, the University of Chicago,
and other institutions.
From 1943 to 1944 he held the
chair of poetry in the Library of
Congress, and during the next two
years edited the "Sewanee Review."

Now Is The Time

For Party Action
Now is the time for all good men to come to the
aid of the party.
No, we aren't practicing our typing. The above
statement is directed to the members of SGA's two
parties. For now, not the week before elections, is
the time when party members can really help their
organizations and SGA.
For too long SGA elections have depended upon
personalities or upon whether the candidate was
an independent or a Greek, rather than upon platforms announced far enough in advance of elections
to give the student voters an opportunity to decide
upon their merits and practicability. Candidates
have seldom, if ever, made public statements as to
their willingness to work for the fulfillment of their
party's promises, but liave confined their campaign
efforts to the last minute rounding-uof friends.
Henry Neal and Don Richardson, heads of the
United Students and Constitutionalists, have stated
tliat they plan to announce their candidates earlier
this semester than has been the practice in the past
If they receive the support of their parties in this,
one of the big reasons for student apathy in SGA
elections and for that matter, SGA itself will be
eliminated.

Although Pete Carter, who proposed the exchange, and SGA no doubt had good motives for
asking the establishment, they really had no concrete plan to present. The only advantage shown
over previous exchanges was that this one would
have the backing of SGA. But that would not insure its survival.
All this seems to make the picture appear dark,
but there is a ray of light which we believe offers a
real solution to the problem.
Alpha Phi Omega, national Boy Scout service
fraternity, has established used book exchanges on
several campuses, with great success. The UK
chapter is now investigating these exchanges.
Evangelos Ievas, president of APO at the University, says the organization will soon have facts on
how to establish and properly operate an exchange.
Since Alpha Phi Omega's plans for book exchanges have been proven successful and workable,
we do not believe the President and the Administration could legitimately refuse to approve establishment of an exchange by the local chapter of
Alpha Phi Omega, when and if its plans are presented. D. C.

The prospect of a good job is the reason most UK
students have come to college. The desire for more
knowledge rates second, according to a recent poll
of 132 students in connection with the National
Toll of Student Opinion.
In comparing the local results to that of the
national poll we find that there are practically no
percentage differences.
College students from all parts of the country
were asked to pick either one or two choices which
came closest to their reasons for attending college.
The results: a good. job .after college, 53 per cent;
desire for more knowledge, 36 per cent; to find a
mate, 2 per cent; it was "the thing to do," 3 per
cent; the parents wished it, 4 per cent; none of
these, 2 per cent.
Oddly, only six UK coeds admitted that they
came to college to find a mate, while nine males
chose this reason. The two reasons given by students who disagreed with the given choices said
that they had come to college for the social life and
to escape the draft.

"

Athletics may still be going full blast, but the
more cultural aspects of the University are beginning to assert themselves withjmore frequency as
the basketball season draws to a close.
Next week is a good example, with two lectures
and a concert being scheduled for the first three
days of the school week. Allen Tate, well known
critic and author, will begin things with a talk
Monday night in the Guignol Theater. Tuesday
the Concert Series will present the concert comedienne Anna Russell who is substituting for Salvador Dali, and a Blazer Lecture by Herbert Heaton
will top things off Wednesday night.
Sometimes we get so wrapped-u- p
in the more
highly publicized athletic events at the University
that we forget that there are actually a great deal
more programs devoted to the arts than to sports.
This is just a reminder of three of those programs.
Next week is not an unusual one; the student will
.be offered many more such programs throughout
the remainder of the school year.
Students can blame only themselves if they leave
ath-

Students were then asked: Which of these reasons do you feel fits best for the majority of college
students?
"A good job after college" was the choice of 72
of the 132 interviewees, and was chosen by 60 per
cent of all the students interviewed nationally.
The big drop was in the percentage of students
who thought that their fellow students had come to
college with the "desire for more knowledge." At
UK, only four chose this reason, and they were all
males.
Following the national trend, the second choice
at UK was that "it was the thing to do," and next
"to find a mate," with the former having a substantial edge.
Many of the students commented that their
choice of professions such as law, education, medicinerequired them to go to college.
A senior coed in home economics said, "Men
want a job, women want a man."
Another senior said that the majority come to
college "to reap the fruits of college social life."

ences in about as "normal" as situation as could be
found. I should add that this directed teaching,
plus the seminars which parallel that experience,
were the most helpful parts of my program of preparation for teaching. It is possible, of course, that
one's own point of view and attitudes could also
have something to do with what a person gets out
of a course.
I believe that "Alum" and I must have been in
the same class at least once. He says, "One instructor spent the entire course citing examples of maladjusted children and why it had happened. The
instructor did not once, however, advance any ideas
as to how to aid or eradicate these same problems."
I am not quite certain to what "it" refers in the first
sentence above, but if "it" refers to reasons for maladjustment, then I should like to submit that those
same reasons are good indications of means which
may be utilized to eradicate these types of maladjustments. At least, I have been successfully using
those discussions in the way indicated above.
I suppose that I am just a gullible, old country
boy, but I can't help but feel that my instructors
in the College of Education have taken a personal
interest in me, and from what I have been able to
learn from other teachers now in the field, they

distance from the University campus, two of my

A student told us this week, "The Kernel is just
a tool of the Administration. You're always persecuting the students. Why don't yon persecute the
Administration?"
We are afraid that is the attitude of too many
students. In their immature,
minds, they think. If the
Administration is for it, I'm agin
it, no matter what it is.
These students are not inter
ested in objective presentation ot
the news. They are . not inter
ested in sensible editorial inter-- '
pretation of campus events. Thev ilv want "to
get after somebody."
In the first place, we seriously doubt that the
Kernel could be called a tool of the Administration
by anyone who has bothered to read it. At times
we agree with administrative measures, and at
other times we disagree.
This year, we have probably disagreed more than
we have agreed with the Administration. This is
not because we wanted to persecute the Administration, but because we believed the Administration was wrong.
We have also called certain student organizations
to task when they deserved such treatment.
Personally, we doubt that the student who made
these statements really cared what stand the Kernel takes on issues. He, like too many others who
instead of college, merely
are fitted for
wants to complain about something. This type is
never satisfied with anything.
Anyhow, we aren't losing any sleep from worrying.

True Love Still Runs Smoothly
On Campus, In Spite Of Adage
Don't believe that old adage that true love doesn't
run smoothly. Take the story of Roscoe and Pene
lope for instance.
Roscoe was seated next to Penelope in the Mar-- J
riage and the Family class. After only a few meetings of the class Roscoe had made up his mind
that Penelope and he were made for each other.
Of course, Roscoe didn't come right out and say
this to Penelope, because he was never one to rush
into things blindly.
First, he went to the Personnel Department in
the Administration Building to check on her IQ
and other mental aptitude test figures. By posing
as a potential employer for the girl, he was allowed to see her records.
The tests showed that Penelope was a very intelligent girj. tij fact, her IQ was very close to his
own genius level. Also it was shown that she had
a high degree of aptitude and accomplishment in
the same major fields in which he was interested.
This is remarkable," lie mumbled to himself as
he left the building. He was so engrossed in his
thoughts that he failed to see Penelope entering as
he left.
'(
But Roscoe was never one to rush into things
blindly . . . "There is her physical condition to
be considered," he decided, and made straightway
to the Infirmary where he would check on this
matter. Here he posed as an insurance salesman
