iMoro than threo days wore added
to the Christmas holidays, when tho
Committee of Dcann decided last
Monday that in compliance with a
petition, circulated among tho students, there would bo no more classes
after Saturday, December 18, until
Tuesday, January 4.
This ruling, which gives a vacation
of two weeks and one day, was
promptly ratified by the faculty and
was received as a most appreciable
gift by the students, especially those
whose homes are at a distance.
In changing the date from Tuesday
23 to Monday 20, the faculty has
made one request that, every student
be here on the morning of Tuesday,
January 4, prepared to begin work
and it is to be hoped that the student
body will show their appreciation by

GOOD TIME AND "EATS" ARE MUCH ENJOYED
Students, faculty members, friends
of State University, alumni and football fans last night paid tribute to tho
members of the 1915 football team of
the Kentucky State University. The
occasion was the annual football banquet given in the main dining room of
tho Phoenix Hotel. The fact that the
banquet was given on the thirteenth
day of tho month failed to prove a
"hoodoo' 'and tho Wildcats added another victory to close the season by
cossumlng tho "Eats,' 'their opponents
in the final contest.
The only thing
blue about the banquet ,was the State
University flag, which with the emblazoned white K, hung over tho center of the table, at which the Wildcats
of 1915 and the Kittens, guests of
honor, were seated.
