It is unlikely any members of the Kentucky" Congressional delegation will attend; however,. The reason: the international crisis. Kentucky's new senator, Earle C. Clements, said it appeared he would not be able to go. "However, it all depends on conditions in Washington at the time." Other Kentucky senators and representatives polled yesterday in Washington indicated they would be "lucky to get home for Christmas" and probably would not go to New Orleans. All New Orleans hotels are reported sold out for the week preceding New Year's Day. The Louisville Chamber of Commerce said there still are a few accommodations in private homes and tourist courts. All are charging for a full week's stay even if accommodations are rented for only one night. Dyed - in - the - wool fans will have no trouble getting reserva aalden UUl sparfcle for dancing feet...

M II 'iv :-- I, of K. Vice-President Dedicates Memorial Coliseum as Sports Arena Ceremony Held During Half Time Lexington, Ky., Dec. 9 (JP) Kentucky tonight dedicated its mammoth field house that was "inspired by a great basketball coach and a succession of great basketball teams . , , and con ceived by superior educational leadership." Dr. Leon M. Chamberlain, university vice-president, applied the description to the elaborate, $4,-000,000 Memorial Coliseum at its dedication as a sports arena. The coliseum was opened earlier as a war memorial and later as a concert hall. The auditorium, with its 12,000 permanent seats and facilities for Man Sending Christmas Gifts To Convicts' 2 Million Children Oklahoma City, Dec. 9 (JP) Who are the most neglected children on Christmas? That problem worried Dan Vinson for years. The kindly, 66-year-old Samaritan finally decided the loneliest children at the happiest time of year were those of convicts. So in 1944 Vinson bought a few gifts. But his project grew and last year 200,000 children of convicts received presents. This year, Vinson called Uncle Dan by millions will see to it that 2,000,000 are remembered. He will not accept money, but takes donations of material to make toys. Vinson, a jolly, robust salesman who with whiskers would be a natural Santa, always has more than enough volunteers to help fashion the toys and mail them. While most people still were worrying how to pay their 1949 Christmas bills, Vinson was planning for this year's work. He stockpiled material for toys and had dies made for turning out the presents. Expects 10,000 Letters A Day Last month, Vinson sent out letters to more than 400 penal institutions in the Western Hemisphere explaining his project. He asked that each convict write how many children he has and their ages. The mail started coming in, and its volume rivals anything the North Pole Santa gets. Right now it's more than 2,000 letters a day. Vinson expects it to reach 10,000 a day next week. The packages are mailed directly to the convicts, who in turn readdress them to their children so they will have a personal touch. This year there are a dozen different toys Uncle Dan will mail out. Included are little aluminum airplanes, jigsaw puzzles, balloons, hair ribbons, scarves, and cloth dolls. Vinson,, who personally has helped more than 500 paroled convicts, feels his project is paying off in aiding prison authorities as well as making a real Christmas for the children. Warden A. F. Dowd of Indiana State Prison at Michigan City estimates the project has increased prison morale 50 per cent at his institution. another 2,500 persons via temporary stands and standing room, provides the largest collegiate basketball playhouse in Dixie. Dr. Chamberlain, delivered the dedication speech at the half time of the Kentucky-Purdue basketball game. The arena was opened for basketball a week ago when Kentucky trimmed West Texas 73 to 43. Earlier today a plaque was unveiled at the outgrown Alumni Gymnasium where Kentucky played its home" games the last 26 years, winning 262 of 287. Because of its small, 3,500-seat capacity, the old gym was opened only to student audiences during some of Kentucky's most successful years on the hardwood. Dr. Chamberlain said the coliseum "reflects the vision and generosity of the people of Ken- tucky and their representatives in nnvpmment and it besDeaks the reverence in which they hold their honored dead. ' Arena Covers Two Acres ".s. . As we dedicate this' great building . . . may we have in mind our obligation to match its grandeur and excellence by our high purpose and conduct. . . ." " The coliseum was planned more than 10 years ago but construction was delayed until after the war. The vast arena covers more than two acres and houses athletic facilities and offices of the athletic department. The bronze plaque commemorating athletic successes at the old Alumni Gymnasium was unveiled with speeches by Coach Adolph Rupp, Dr. H. L. Donovan, university president, and Judge Edwin R. Denney of Mount Vernon, president of the alumni group. State A.B.C.

Shearer said, however, that the case probably will go to Circuit Court for action. He said Herman Santen, Paris liquor adminis trator, had denied the application and had opposed it at the board meeting. The application has been pending since summer.
