committee to have the fund represent

of the plan to have a day designated

The quota for the entire State is
$6,000 and the amount assigned to the

PHI ALPHA DELTA IS
Clay Chapter Reorganized
At Initiation Banquet
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. For two years it has been practically dead, but with the return of
two members, Tom Grubbs and Jack
W. Howard, who with the help of
Judge Lyman Chalkley and Frank
Ginnocchlo, alumnae members, have
revived it thoroughly and it is once
more on the list of active chapters.
Thursday night, following the initia
tion which took place that afternoon,
a banquet was given in honor of the
new members and the chapter of the
University of Cincinnati, at the Phoenix Hotel. It was attended by prominent alumni, members of the former
active chapter, and initiates.
This fraternity boasts of an almost
perfect honor record, eighteen out of
tho twenty-threbeen enlisted in the service. The
other flvo were rejected on account
of physical defects. Two of their
members, Reuben Hutchcraft
Stanley Smith, wore killed on tho battlefields of France. Both students
wore woll known nnd much beloved
and will not soon bo forgotten by tho
members of this Institution. Joe Tor- renco, of Cynthlana, another ono of
their members, was wounded soveral
times and cited for unusual bravery.
The reorganization of this fraternity

Are Student Representatives of Committee
The Athletic Committee of the University recently appointed by President McVey and approved by the University Senate, held Its first meeting
Wednesday afternoon in the presi
dent's office and formally organized
by electing Dr. J. 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
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. Tho most feasible policy
for tho committee to pursue, as advanced by tho members of the committee, would be to build tho stadium
in sections, a stated portion to be
built annually until the whole shall
have been completed. Tho secretary-treasurwas asked to prepare for
