February may be American History Month in Kentucky, backed by
the full authority of a proclamation
b Gov. Lawrence B. Wetherby, but
the Declaration of Independence
took quite a beating this week when
it was taken out on the campus for
an airing by two Kernel reporters.
Around campus hangouts and in
the hallways a typewritten copy of
the first two paragraphs of the
Declaration was handed to students
d
selected at random. Only
recognized the paragraphs and only
d
of this enlightened minority was positive. From there on,
history was made and remade and
declared with conviction.
Over half of the students interrogated were quite sure that they
had the correct answer although the
correct answer to them was, for example, the Gettysburg Address, the
Preamble to the Constitution of the
one-thir-

one-thir-

lor points out that "American history has been less emphasized in
former years in our schools than
any other history subject." He feels
it is important to have a thorough
background in American history, in
order "to develop the alert citizen
we will need in tomorrow's world."

The Student Government Association has announced that the following rules are In effect nnder the present administration:
Permit are issued, respectively, to the physically handicapped,
faculty and staff, and commuters, according to their distance from
home, as long as parking space is available. Special hardship eases
may receive permits by consulting with the SGA Judiciary Committee.
This committee also hears all violation appeals.
Any person parking on the campus without a parking permit will
receive a traffic ticket.
Traffic tickets cost $1.00, provided the ticket is paid or reported to
the SGA secretary within one week of the date that the ticket is issued. After the first week the ticket costs J2.00.
If sis or more tickets are issued against a person and he does not
pay his fine or report his ticket, the sixth ticket and every ticket thereafter will be $5.00 each.
All fines are to be paid to the secretary of SGA in the Administration Building.

Office in the Administration Building.
Give Individual Help
After the four class hours, students who need individual help in
setting up study schedules, studying
for examinations, taking notes, or
other study problems may make appointments with the Personnel Office for further aid.
Cayce expressed the hope that
fraternities would endeavor at once
to raise their standings, adding that
Dean Kirwan had received several
letters from parents who were reluctant to send their children to UK
because of the low fraternity stand-

The Scholarship Committee offered a creed to show the relationship of fraternities and scholarship,
and also gave fraternity representatives a list of suggestions for improvement of fraternity scholarship.
List Suggestions
The suggestions were:
1. Require pledges to post all test
grades in a conspicuous place.
2. Have the scholarship chairman
of each fraternity post the standings
of all members in a conspicuous
place.
Rank the members from
highest to lowest and underline in
red all men who made below the
average.
3. Enforce quiet hours in the
all-me-

house.
4. Do not be too reluctant to drop
pledges and suspend actives who

continually fail to make a standing.
Check Grades
5. Before a fraternity pledges a
man, make a close check on his
high school grades and his scores
on the entrance exams. Make sure
a man is able to do college work be
fore he is pledged.
6. Make sure that all members
who drop courses or who drop out
of school are listed as withdrawals
instead of failures.

Fail To Recognize

United States, Washington's Inaugural Address, Washington's Farewell
Address, the Communist Manifesto,
and the Fourteenth Amendment to
the Constitution.
One student's answer ranged from
a speech by Jefferson Davis, to a
Revolutionary War speech, and finally to the Gettysburg Address.
Said one student, "It's from nothing; it's all about nature and stuff."
One student who knew that it was

his
was having a hard
time identifying it, and gave him a
clue, "John Hancock wrote it." He
gave no credit to Thomas Jefferson
for his political treatise nor to
Thomas Paine, much of whose political philosophy Jefferson adopted.
Another person answered, "It
sounds like a lot of malarkey to me.
It sounds like something out of the
South Pacific. When something like
grill-frien-

is taken out of its entirety, it
can often be misconstrued." yet the
opening paragraphs of the Declaration of Independence are something
which every American school-bo- y
should know.
One Arts and Sciences student
thought it was from the Bible. Another asked. "Where was the thing
dug up?" still another accused the
surveyors of making it up and trying
to stick him.
"It sounds like something Abraham Lincoln had something to do
with," was another reply. Two political science graduate students gave
as their first answer the Preamble,
then upon further consideration said
that it was the Declaration of Independence.
These answers and many more
like them demonstrate the need for
an American History Month, not
only in February, but during every
month of the year.

Deans Meet
To Plan Ag
Short Courses
A committee representing
the
southern group of the Deans of
Agriculture wiy meet in the Agriculture Building today to make
plans and develop a program for a
conference on short courses in agriculture.
After the plans are drawn up at
UK, a conference will be held at
Louisiana State University the
second week in April. The purpose
of the conference to be held at
L.S.U. is to stimulate interest in
short courses
courses of less than
one semester with no credit, usually
from three to six weeks, and to help
the southern states to develop better programs in short courses.
L. J. Horlacher, associate dean of
agriculture, said that short courses
are not being offered in the southern states, including UK, to the extent that they are being offered at
other colleges.
This program, if successful, will
make it possible for southern colleges to offer a program in short
courses comparable to that offered
in other states.
Those who plan to attend the UK
meeting include Dr. Robert Van
Duyn, Kellog Foundation: Dr.
Maurice Seay, chairman of the department of education at the University of Chicago, former dean at
UK; Dean N. D. Peacock, College of
Agriculture, University of Tennessee; Dean C. H. Bostian, North
Carolina State; and Dean V. C.
Freeman, University of Purdue.

Fraternities Back On Spot
For Unusual Reason: Grades

Fraternities are on tlie spot again for the usual

drawing faculty and administration fire. And
again the fraternities can oiler little defense for

power. The IFC is no exception.

In the past we have been criticized by students and administration both for being

from the truth. What we are actually against is
misuse of the power of self government by the
students intrusted with it. This misuse can only
result in the withdrawal of that power.
What the fraternities are actually facing is
something much more serious than the temporary loss of social privileges. If they do not take
proper action now they may lose the last vestages

They can hardly be blamed.
the plan they
nowr have imder consideration for taking social
privileges from fraternities which do not maintain an average equal to the all men's average
will not solve the problem. True, it may give
the fraternities an incentive for improvement, but
the actual work will still have to le done by
the individual organizations.
If the IFC is interested in maintaining what
little
fraternities now have, it
should take immediate and positive action. The
basis for this action has been laid in the issuing
of a committee report consisting of eight suggestions for the improvement of fraternity scholarship (see page 1 story). Suggestions, however, are a long way from lxMiig positive action
and no one knows this better than the IFC. Suggestions for the improvement of scholarship have
leen made by the IFC time and time again in
the past with little or no improvement resulting.
To actually improve scholarship the IFC will
have to see that their suggestions become enforced rules.
Students, and Creeks in particular, complain
bitterly about excessive administration control.
But when they are givert the opportunity to govern themselves they are liable to do such a slipshodjob that you can hardly blame

Brotherhood Is Key
To Basic Problem
Sunday marks the opening of the annual
"Brotherhood Week" sponsored by the National
Conference of Christians and Jews. Just what
does this have to do with UK students, you ask.
Not much really just their future.
This is a day and age of modernization and
mechanical achievements, but
man's basic problem of living together peacefully has only lecome more difficult as a result
of these achievements. For this problem is not
one that can le solved by mechanical advancements, even huge stockpiles of atomic bombs.
The solution now is the same as it always
has been; the creation of a real feeling of brotherhood between all men. The only difference
is the problem has become a great deal more
serious in the last few years.
Perhaps this thing called brotherhood might
merit a little extra though next week even by
UK students.
