More Than 300 Present at Alumni'
Banquet at Seelbach Hotel
The Alumni Association was well
represented at the Kentucky Educational Associatoin convention held in
Louisville last week. From every section of the Starte members of the
Alumni Association and former students of the University were present.
The Alumni Association banquet,
held Thursday night at the Seelbach
hotel in the main dining room, was
attended by 330 persons, of which at
least 275 were former students and
W. C. Wilson, Alumni Secreary,
presided as toastmaster of the banquet.
Governor William J. Fields and President McVey were among the speakers. In a few words Governor Fields
outlined his plans for assisting the educational institutions of the state and
expressed hopes that the $75,000,000
bond issue would bring the some of
the help so badly needed.
Dr. McVey preceded
Fields with an address in which he
stated that the programs of the University could only mean the progress
of education as whole in the state the
growth and expansion of the grade
schools, the high schools, normal
schools and sectarian colleges must
inevitably follow that of the University.
A particular pleasing feature of the
banquet was the fact that practically

several of the campus organizations
were asked to take part in the enter- -'
tainment at the banquet.

former resident of the state urging
him or her to conic to Kentucky during the celebration. A big parade will
be held in Louisville during the homecoming wek and also a barbecue.
