Nor should I want to o'er recall
What might havo been tho best for
But grant today with all its doubts
With all its doubts and all its fears,
And let me travel 'long tho routes
Where all is new to eyes and ears.
Let me not feel long 'ere their time
The aches and pains that are my
Nor can I feel the art sublime

And if the whole of life were known.
And all its secrets brought to light,
It were not proper then to own
A higher sway than man s poor
For me I choose to wonder still,
To marvel with the childlike mind,
To think beyond the human will
A vale's too deep for human kind.

The "K" men of the University at

Captain Crutcher Stars In
His Last Game on
(By Tom Underwood.)
Saturday was wash day and the
Wildcats felt called upon to clean up
Mississippi A. & M. in Stoll laundry
room with Doc, Brit, Maury and Mac
wielding wicked scrubbing brushes.
Schwill splashed three drops of water
on the Kentucky soap and towel crew
in the first part of the application of
suds, but the Cats hopped in as soon
as the water began to get hot and
sapolloed the Aggies thirteen unlucky
times. The game ended with Miss
issippi's crowd so well scrubbed that
they looked as clean as a
fence In Spotless Town.
The thirteen-to-thredefeat means
that Kentucky has the best of tho
series of three contests with Mississippi A. & M. The first was when tho
Mississippians greased up their pants
with lard or something. It was a pretty slick (pun) trick but they couldn't
get away with it, because one of the
officials had once worked in a grocery
store and was a connoisseur of lard.
At this writing George Washington,
janitor extraordinary, is in the office
of the sporting writer of the Kernel
(rich humor) trying to tell how it all
happened. He says it was a greasy

Moosnlck swears Its so but tho sporting editor of tho Kernel doesn't think
that olthor hurts or helps tho story.
