The class responded nobly to the call for "firemen" and buckets and even paper sacks and drinking cups were pressed into service to subdue the Are, which finally gave up the ghost.

Hear Professors' Opposite Views. A spirited debate on the League of Nations, with Professor Farquhar favoring the League, and Dr. Tuthill opposing it, was the feature of the program given at the meeting of the Agricultural Society Monday night. This was ono of a series of programs given during the last week by various organizations, on the League, with a purpose of educating the student body on the subject which was voted on Tuesday morning by students and faculty members. Professor Farquhar's talk was a brilliant presentation of his reasons for favoring a treaty and a league. The chief objections, and the reservations suggested were also discussed by the affirmative speaker. Doctor Tuthill responded with a spirited answer to the first speech. STIFF SENTENCE FOR PATT HALL BURGLAR Hapless Recreant Gets Five Years To Repent of Boldness. The Patt. Hall burglar, as George Warren, a negro, is known on the cam; pus, that hapless individual who on the night before Christmas holidays, sneaked into the basement of Patterson Hall, and from there invaded the land, commonly realms of known as the upper floors of the dormitory, was brought to trial Monday in Circuit Court and sentenced to Ave years in the penitentiary. Warren was brought up on two charges of burglary. On the night of his appearance in Patterson Hall, he succeeded in thoroughly frightening a number of residents who caught sight of him, once headed for a fire escape, and later, trying to hide under a bed on the second floor. He was able to escape, however, making away with twelve dollars. The next night he entered the home of Mrs. Fannie Whaley, 341 Harrison Avenue, and was there captured by Mrs. A. J. Allen, who held her captive at bay with a shoe horn until help came. Discharged Soldiers Seeking Education Given Allowance.

The votes were counted in Dean P. P. Boyd's office and the results posted on a bulletin board In the main hall of the Administration Building at 5 o'clock Tuesday afternoon. This voluntary vote which represents the sentiment of over eighty-fiv- e per cent of the student body and a hundred per cent of the faculty, is ample evidence that, if the University of Kentucky had anything to do with it, the League of Nations, as it stands, without reservations, would go over the top. Dr. R. A. Elwood, pastor of the Board Walk Presbyterian Church of Atlantic City, was the speaker In chapel Tuesday. "Intelligence,"' said he, "is the unwritten synonym for why you are here. Intelligence based on knowledge, and knowledge with a foundation of truth are the great needs of America today. A university diploma Is evidence of helther intellectuality nor ability to perform. It is the way in which that diploma was won that really counts. "Next to Intelligence," the speaker ranks as a continued, "patriotism great essential to American citizenship. We want a patriotism that- is based on the law of the land. There is no room in this country for those who wish to change that law by means of the bomb or any unlawful proceeding. "The third and greatest essential conof true Americanism, upright, citizenship is character. structive Character is the greatest asset that a man can have." A WORD PAINTER. "How far from here do you live?" asked the man who had listened attentively to the real estate agent. "OTi, soverul miles." "I'm sorry for that. I'm sure my family could be happy forever in this suburb if we could only drop in on you occasionally and hear you talk ubout It." Washington Star.
