No. 23 PHI ALPHA DELTA IS AT Clay Chapter Reorganized At Initiation Banquet Last Week When ithe United States declayed on Germany practically the entire membership of the Clay chapter of the Phi Alpha Delta, national law fraternity, left school and entered the service. Thursday afternoon it was re organized and again put on a sound working basis by the initiation of twelve new members. nationThe fraternity Is ally, being second in size and importance among legal fraternities in the United States, and having about forty active and eight alumnae chap ters.

J. Tigert chairman of the committee, and Mr. Henry E. Curtis, secretary-treasure- r of the for mer association, to hold the same position on the new committee. Those present at the first meeting of the Athletic Committee were: President McVey, J. J. Tigert, S. A. Boles, Henry E. Curtis, W. L. Sum mers, Enoch Grehan, E. E. Kelley and A. J. Muth. Mr. Kelley and Mr. Muth are the student members of the com mittee. Other members of the committee, who were not present at the meeting are Hogan Yancey, E. B. Webb, and Louis Hil'enmeyer. These three men, who are the citizen and alumni representatives on the com mittee, were unable to be present for the reason that Mr. Webb was ill, and Messrs. Yancey and Hlllenmeyer were prevented from attending because of pressing business. A financial report, Including all the business up to the present time, was read by Mr. Curtis. With the track and baseball season not completed it is impossible to make a complete sur vey of the financial situation of Ken-tucky's athletics, but anticipating pros pective expenses and allowing for all customary expenses, the final report was estimated to show a satisfactory balance in favor of athletics. The final reports of the officers of the old association showed that the year just closing was a success financially, and that the athletic situation at the University was very bright. The remainder of the afternoon was devoted to a general discussion of a resident coach, as provided by the bylaws of the committee. A number of men, some of national reputation, were discussed for the position of football coach, but no definite decision will bo arrived at until further information is received concerning prospective coaching material. When the council adjourned it was with the understanding that tho appointed would make recommendation regarding a new coach. Matters affecting a now concrete stadium were discussed.
