CALLS IT "GOOD STUFF"
The students at Kentucky State
University or at least those who are
connected with the staff of the Ken
tucky Kernel, believe that this school
is putting out one of the best college
weeklies in this part of the world and
we have always thought that in some
departments, especially the paragraph
column, we are hard to beat. Now
we know that we were right in our
belief since that peer of all present-dahumorists and the man whose'
name is a household word in .the entire Middle West, namely, our old
friend, Luke McLuke, has complimented our paragraphs in his Bits of
column in the Cincinnati Enquirer.
In the issue of last Thursday, October 7, the following Item which was
headed "Good Stuff," appeared:
The humorists attending the State
University of Kentucky last week published an imitation of Luke's Bits of
Biplay in the college Idea. They headed the column with an apology to Luke
and to the Cincinnati Enquirer. THE
STUFF WAS ALL ORIGINAL "AND
WAS REALLY FUNNY.
The column to which Mr. McLuke
refers appeared last spring before
school was out and was written by
Kenneth Doris, who was managing editor and writer of The Hum of the
Gadfly last year.
comes late it is probably because no
one sent Luke a copy of the paper,
and lest such a thing should again
happen, we hereby warn him that he
has been placed on the subscription
list of The Kentucky Kernel, the successor to The Idea, a copy of which
he received and commended.
This year's column which is called
"Squirrel Food," is modeled after Mr.
Doris' Gadfly column of last year, and
it is the ambition of the management
to make it just as good. Although Mr.
Doris is not in school this year, he is
located in Lexington, as reporter on
the Lexington Herald, and has been
of sreat assistance to this year's management by his advice. W. C. "Bill"
Shlnnlck is in charge of the "Squirrel
Focd" this year and the nutlets are
written by a number of different peoAmong the contributions which
last week were several by
Thanks, Luke. The next time you
are In Lexington let us know and we
will set 'em up to "what makes the

which you praise so highly. And Luke,
you know what Kentucky boasts of.
