ing made regarding judges. Kansas is

The Y. M. C. A. began yesterday
the distribution of its 19u3 faculty and
student directory. This most serv
iceable of the University publii atlons
appears a, little later than usual tills

editorial or mechanical respects. Very
useful addition are found in the
lists of musical and agricultural stu
dents, but this extra advantage is
seriously offset by the absence of lit-
erar and social directories, and the
non designation of the literary and
social adUlatlons of the students. That
even with these changes the director
