A regimental parade and guard mount will be the feature of the inspection Monday afternoon. The parade and guard mount last Wednesday afternoon were held in preparation for .the arrival ot the inspection officers.' V Although tithe Inspection officers will take into consideration the administrative facilities and activities of the unit, the work, of the basic course men filling the ranks will determine the rating of the unit. The officers will vote he unit as unsatisfactory, satisfactory, or excellent, depending upon the results of inspection in the following subjects: First and second year basic courses, and first and second year advanced courses. Particular attention will be given to general administration inspection; unit administration inspection; unit training inspection and an eco nomic survey.

The University debating team, composed of Sydney Schell and Hugh Jackson, has the affirmative of the question, while the Northwetsern team composed of William C. Wines and Richard Peterson, has the negative. According to Prof. Sutherland, University debate coach, this debate will be one of the most impor tant held on the campus this year. "It is particularly important because of the current interest manifest in the question, not only by economists, but the people of the commercial world as well." Stenographers will be present and the speeches will be taken down in shorthand. After corrections have been made the speeches will be published in a bulletin which is issued by the extension department, and distributed to the various high schools throughout the state. The same question will be used by the high schools of twelve states in their debating activities next year, Mr. Sutherland said today. .Thitetho ..thiHI ar4hattb- University of Kentucky has been the host to the Northwestern de- bating team. On each occasion they tour Central Kentucky, debating fore the various high schools, on Wednesday night at 8 o'clock the two teams debated at Williams- town; Thursday night at Paris, and tonight they are here. Sat Y. M. APPOINTS CONVENTION MEN Announcement that final examln atlons will be given the last three regular class periods this semester instead of the program usually followed by the University was made yesterday by the committee on examinations. This committee was appointed several months ago by the University Senate to invest! gate the best method of giving ex animations in order to save the most time. Final examinations for freshmen, sophomores and juniors will be held 1, during the week of May while examinations for seniors will be held a week earlier. The advan tage of this recently adopted meth od, according to officials of the University, is that much time will be saved. They had feared that there would not be enough time between the regular term and the first term of summer school for Junior Week and for certain improvements which are to be made on the campus. This method of giving examinations was first tried the spring semester of last year, and met with much unfavorable comment from the student body. According to reports, however, this year will be the last time this method will be used, due to official action of the Uni versity Senate.

Bound in a most attractive cover of genuine black walrus, it presents an appearance which promises much within its covers, and this promise is more than fulfilled as one goes through Its contents. The art of the annual represents the spirit that led the men of America through the World War. Scenes of the University campus are such that they are fully representative of the beauty of the institution. This year, for the first time ever, the picture of President McVey is done In charcoal. This is the highest honor that can be awarded a person through the medium of engraving. The pages which bear the pictures of the deans are well balanced, with an individual picture "of each dean and the entrance to his office. Probably the outstanding feature of the book is the section which contains full page illustrations and pictures of campus affairs.

Robinson Describes In Detail Conditions of Speaking at the general convocation of University students at 10 o'clock Wednesday morning in Memorial hall, and taking as his topic "The Operations of March 21, 1918," Col. O. P. Robinson, professor of Military Science and Tactics at the University of Indiana, presented an interesting discussion and a vivid portrayal of conditions existing at, what he termed, the "turning point of the World War." He stressed the necessity for pre paredness, and suggested a medium between the two extremes of prep aration on the part of Germany and unpreparedness on the part of the United States at the outbreak of the last war. The Somme drive of March 21, 1918, was the biggest and the final offensive drive made by the Germans. Illustrating his discussion by various maps of the war area, Col. Robinson pointed out the steps given in the following historical synopsis: "The first and heaviest blow fell to the right of the British army and at the right Junction between the French and the British. It was launched March 21 on a front of SO miles, and continued until April 6." In, concluding his address CoL Robinson expressed 'his belief that an army should be maintained by the United States, not reaching the extreme in preparedness such as Germany boasted, but lying somewhere in the midpoint between the great preparation of Germany and the great unpreparedness of the United States at the beginning of the World War. Col. Robinson Is the author of "Fundamentals of Military Strat egy." KATHLEEN OF SENIORS FESTIVITIES Approximately One-Haof Student Body Cast Votes in Election lf Miss Hazel Virginia Baucom, of Lexington, a junior in the College of Education and a member of the Alpha Gamma Dlta sorority, was elected Queen of the May for 1930 yesterday by the men students of the (University. Approximately one - half of the student body cast votes in the election, markiner one of the heaviest ballots polled in years at campus elections. Miss Baucom will be crowned Queen of the May on May 2. at which time the University will hold its annual celebration of the advent of the month of flowers and fair weather. On that day she will ride at the head of a mammoth procession through the streets of Lexington, her native city, and will be formally crowned with beautiful ceremony on the campus proper. Miss Kathleen Fitch, also of Lexington, a senior in the College of Arts and Sciences, a member of the Kappa Delta social sorority, receiv- el the second highest vote in yesterday's election, and as a result will be maid of honor to Miss Baucom when she is made Queen of the May. Miss Fitch will be remembered as the first Junior Prom queen at the University of Kentucky, she having been elected to that post last year at the first prom queen election here. Misses Katherine Davis, of Lexof Richington; Betsy Bennett, mond, K?.; Mary Armstrnog, of Lexington, and Mary Sidney Hobson, of Ashland, Ky., were chosen attendants to the ueen for the ceremonies at the annual festivities. They ranked in the vote poll in the order named above. An unusual feature entered the election when it was discovered that four of the girls honored in yesterday's contest are residents of Lexington. It is expected that this in an expression of will result greater interest in the May Day ceremonies this year than eber before.
