The appnrently invincible University of Kentucky basketball quintette,
victorious through seven successive
contests, will attempt to make it eight
straight when it engages Auburn, an
other Southern Conference member,
Monday night at 8 o'clock,
To date, Auburn has played but
three conference games, taking the
first only to drop a double engagement
to the might Tulane Greenbacks, a
team conceded by many authorities
to be one of the strongest contenders
for the Southern basketball crowns
However, Auburn can be counted
upon to put up their customary fight,
and unless all signs fail, the 'Cats
will have to keep their claws in good
condition if they succeed in keeping
unblemished their 100 percent standing in the S. I. C.
Winning this game will mean much
to the cause of Kentucky, because
only 16 of the 22 conference teams
will be permitted to participate in
the S. I. C. tournament, and the
eligibility of each team will be based,
upon its comparative standing at the
close of the regular season.

All I know is what I hear on the

Year's evo is not the only time that
college students turn over new leaves
and make resolutions. A hectic semester"1' has just come to a close, bringing
its disastrous results to many, while
casting lights of glory on others.
Those who have been classed with the
former and find themselves in an
situation with the registrar's office, resolve to make a
standing of three the second semester,
and show the professor that they can
do better. Those who have come out
of .the maelstrom with a standing of
two or better, modestly comment on
their achievement, saying that they
didn't work very much and were
greatly surprised. Well, it is a fair
bet to say that these that didn't make
their standing didn't work, and those
that did, did work. None of them
