"I only speak right on." DeAtley came here last year from the Eastern Kentucky State Normal School, and like all normalites he had much to learn of real college life. He is taking law, and doing much classical work "on the side." But Criminal Law is his strong point. It is this in which he expects to specialize, and woe be the criminal he prosecutes, but blessed be he whom he defends. He is one of the hardest workers and best students in the law department.

-The Kentuckian, 1912
