HORLACHER GETS GIFT t. , , staged "tfce Little International," by the Hoof and Horn Club was held Monday night at the Judging pavillion. The crowd numbered more than three hundred, though it was only the second show of its kind ever staged by the College of Agriculture. The "Little International" is now an annual affair of the University calendar and is becoming more and more popular. It has become particularly interesting to the students enrolled in the College of Agriculture, but has interested other students as well. The purpose of such a program is to place on exhibition and demonstrate the judging of livestock which is sent to the International Live Stock Show held In Chicago which this year is November 27 to December 4. ' Prof. E. S. Good, Department of Animal Husbandry, opened the and in his speech told of the success his department is having in im- proving the various breeds of animals owned by the University and express- ed his pleasure, that such ah interest in livestock is being manifested by the students and he anticipated as much success for the Live Stock Team as the Dairy Team met when it placed the University In third place in the list of twenty-one-. The first to be Judged was a ring of fat steers and at the same time a ring of fat barrows was Judged. H. J. Well bad charge of the steers while H. G. !8ellards and J. W. Holland were in 'charge of the barrows. The contest of a judging the steers was open to of the Freshmen class, only, while 'any classman was eligible in the bar-raring. A cash prize of $6.00 was 'awarded to the three men who made the highest grade in placing the steers. 'Thirty-onturned in score , Freshmen WEBB CHAIRMAN The Student Loan Fund Committee which has recently been reorganized, met Tuesday at the fifth hour to dis cuss plans for carrying on its work during the coming year. The purpose of the fund is to help students who are in need of financial aid, to continue their education. Students interested may see Professor Webb, chairman of the committee, in the Physics Office in the Civil and Physics Building. At present there is on hand a sum of about $1,000, which has not yet been loaned. This is considerably less than one half of the' loan fund, which amounts to approximately $2,500, and the committee feels that it will be necessary to make some plans for in creasing the amount of this fund. The rules governing loans are as ' follows: 1. An applicant for loans must make it clear to the committee that there is a real need on his part for funds. 2. No loan is made to a student who has been in residence at the University for a shorter period than one semester; preference is shown to Juniors and Seniors. 3. No loan is made to a student whose record for scholarship and reputation for industry and assiduity in his studies are not above criticism. 4. Except in extraordinary cases, the maximum loan to a student during an academic year is $100; and the total sum loaned to any individual during his college course may not ex ceed $300. 5. As evidence of the loan a note of hand is required. 6. Ordinarily, the applicant must promise to repay the loan within one year after bis graduation or withdrawal from the University. 'ards. 7.

Sweeney, Head of the Department of Home Economics of the University of Kentucky since 1912, has resigned to become Dean of Home Economics in the Michigan Agricultural College at East Lansing, Michigan. Miss Sweeney will probably not be at the University of Kentucky after November 29. Miss Sweeney, in addition to the ad ministrative duties of her new posi tion, will be in charge of nutritional research and other research work. In referring to Miss Sweeney's resig nation to President Frank L. McVey, Thomas P. Cooper, dean of the College of Agriculture and director of fie Experiment Station, said in part: 1Miss Sweeney has performed a splendid work at this institution. She has built up the Department of Home Economics, has popularized it, and made it effective."

Due to the length of the letter only the pertinent parts are printed: , Editor Kernel: "What's the matter with athletics at the University of Kentucky,?" This is the question most frequently asked when two old Kentucky men meet. At least, this is the case in this section of the South. This question is quite often asked by men who are complete strangers to our University, who cannot understand (why a uni versity of Kentucky's importance and high standing in all other lines will permit her athletic teams to be out classed by practically all colleges and universities of equal rank and, in many instances, by those of lower rank. The question could be readily and satisfactorily disposed of if it eeaM be said ki reply that the University of Kentucky is a small and unimportant institution and has neith er the material in men nor the in money to do any better; but that is not the truth and the whole South and Middle West knows that it is not. An examination of the athletic record discloses: that they have defeat ed two teams of prep school ranking, presumably taken on for practice games; they have lost two games to teams that are this year by no means in the first class of universities that is distinctly and decidedly a second rate team. Last Saturday they were virtually tied by Cincinnati, a team that is by no means a leader. This is not a record to which the University of Kentucky can point with pride; it does not match her record in other lines of endeavor. Nothing that I have said or will say is intended to reflect upon that gallant little band that has fought under the Blue and White upon the Continued On Page 8.

HOLMES IN CHARGE A department of Hygiene and Public Health has been organized under the direction of Dr. P. K.

Locke, recently a general practioner in New York, as resident physician for women, and Miss Tillie Greathouse, recently returned from overseas work', : as resident nurse. This Social Hygiene board has been organized as a special branch of the United States Health Service to extend the splendid work, of combating venereal disease done in the army, to civil life. The board has received funds for disseminating information on sex life and the dangers of venereal disease and this information will be given to students in our educational institutions as part of the general health campaign. Under the requirements of the Board, the duties of this Department will be the medical supervision of all students of the University. This in cludes the making of medical examinations twice a year, seeing that physical defects are remedied as the care of the sick. All students will be required to have instruction in Hygiene and the rules of health for three hours a week for at least one year. Advanced courses in Hygiene and Sanitation will be offered for those who plan to teach. These courses according and the requirements of the Board must include instruction in sex hygiene. All men and women in college will also be required to take a certain number of periods of gymnasium and athletic in eft ruction each wefek thruout the college course. This instruction will be given under the direction of tha Department of Physical Education. A Sanitary Survey of the campaa and buildings will be mado and fol lowed up by continued supervision.
