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 to graduate 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. Captain-elec- t 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. At a meeting of the Athletic Committee just previous to the banquet, Prank Grainger was chosen student manager for 1917 to succeed Elmer Hopkins. may develop A quiet movement from Friday night's meeting whoroby the alumni and friends of the University may begin an activo campaign to insure tho Wildcats better support in the future, with a viow to bringing the S. I. A. A. championship to Lexington. "Next year is tho best year," was tho slogan expressed by all tho speakers Friday night, and tho alumni movoment is tho result of this optimism.

Col-log- IN CHAPEL Exercises Under Auspices of Prohibition Club-Pr- izes Given STEWART WINS FIRST Maxwell Hall, associate general Prosecretary of tho hibition Association, was the princi pal speaker at chapel Tuesday morn ing, which was held under the auspices of the University Prohibition His subject was, "History of Club. 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 The 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 dry from the Atlantic to the Pacific and from the Gulf of Mexico to the North Pole." The two prizes offered for the best themes on some phase of prohibition were awarded. The first prize, a Webster's Intercollegiate Dictionary, was His subwon by Bradly M. Stewart. ject was, "Psychology of Alcoholism." Lyman Chalkley, Jr.. was winner of the second prize, a complete set of the His subject works of Shakespeare. e was, "Prohibition." Winning Theme. Mr. Stewart's theme, which won first prize, follows: "When one takes his first drink of some beverage containing alcohol, two distinct changes of mind occur. First, toward intoxicating one's attitude drinks Is formed. If one has held a prejudice against strong drink, that dlsllko Is overcome, and one becomos favorably Inclined toward tho poison. Next, a kind of preferred conduct is established. A certain portion of tho brain is inodlllod permanently; and a norvo circuit, especially designated for its now function, is connected up. ready for future use. In a word, willpower has been lossonod and an incipient habit has been produced. "Naturally, a second step in tho drunkard's career is easy. All is pro- pared; tho bars aro down.
