John Albert Hrlttnin, wlio lias played
guard on the Wildcat football squad
for the past two years, was elected
captain of the 1917 team at a banquet
given at the Leonard Hotel Friday
evening in honor of the sixteen men
who earned the "K" on the gridiron
this fall. About twenty friends and
supporters of the Wildcats were present, besides the regular varsity men.
Visions of an S. I. A. A. championship football team for next year were
inspired by addresses by Judge Barker, Maury Crutcher, Captain-elec- t
Brittain, Dr. J. J. Tigert, Professor
Enoch Grchan, toastmaster; Hogan
Yancey, "Doc" Rodes, Bill Tuttle, S.
A. Boles, and Curt Park.
Rumors to the effect that "Doc"
Rodes would not be seen in a Wildcat
uniform next year, were denied by
that gentleman, who said that he
would be in camp early to assist Captain Brittain in bringing a championship football team to Lexington. This
statement brought forth sighs of relief from all those present.
Captain Crutcher, Charlie Haydon
and Broadus Hickerson are the only
men on the "K" letter squad, "who
were guests of honor at the banquet
in June, Haydon has
played only two years of intercollegiate football, while Hickerson has only
been on the varsity only one year.
Hickerson said that he will very likely
be on hand next fall and Haydon's
friends believe that he will also answer the roll call.
Brittain lias earned
the reputation of being one of the
steadiest and most reliable men on the
Wildcat squad. No matter how much
his man outweighed him, Brit could
always be relied upon to fight and his
brilliant playing has changed many a
seeming defeat into a victory.

Prosecretary of tho

His subject was, "History of
tho Prohibition Movement." Profes
sor J. T. C. Noe presided.
The speaker told of the numerous
efforts to induce people to be temper
ate. The first attempt was in 1S20
when a number of reformers gathered
in Boston and pledged themselves to
drink no distilled liquors. This club
soon had a membership of 3,000,000.
This method, however, failed to eradicate the evil.
Mr. Hall said there are two methods of doing away with the liquor evil.
One is to take the drinker away from
the drink and the other is to take
drink away from the drinker.
latter method, the speaker said, is the
better because the drink will not come
back to the drinker.
From these meagre beginnings, the
prohibition movement has gained considerable ground, and at present over
half the states or the Union have entered the dry column. Mr. Hall said
that the prohibition forces would not
cease work until North America "is

and from the Gulf of Mexico to the

Lyman Chalkley, Jr.. was winner of
the second prize, a complete set of the

Mr. Stewart's theme, which won
