"What it takes to make a classy Jane. She's got it! Believe me!"

Hearing of the wondrous beauty of the Kentucky Belles, as well as the many other things for which this state is noted, "Joe" traveled all the way from Ver-gin-iah to see for himself the truth or falsity of the above. We cannot tell whether or not he is satisfied with what he found, but one thing is certain, and that is that he found a University here, and as he says, "What it takes to make SOME law school--U. K. certainly has got it!"

-The Kentuckian, 1915
