Shouse, well-knoLexington author was the speaker of the evening, while Mrs. several L. L. Dantzler rendered musical numbers. After being Introduced by Mrs. E. S. Good, Mrs. Shouse told the story of "Porgy," by Dorothy DuBose Heywood. "She read the crap shooting scene from the first act, the divorce discussion from the second act, and the entire scene from the fourth act in which Porgy returns from Jail. In commenting on the play, Mrs. Shouse said, it might be compared to many other plays not technically sound, but which give a panorama She of the life of the character. added that while the plot of Is not the "Porgy" is interesting, it fundamental basis of the play, but rather serves as a skeleton on which to build the author's portrayal of racial characteristics, primi tive religion, and fear of love and marriage. "The author," said Mrs. Shouse, "tries to show In the play that a race Is always subject to op pression, which Is exemplified in amusements, labors, and songs. Beauty is expressed through the rhythm of the songs as a background which plainly is seen in the acting of the play as it is acieoj under all conditions." At the conclusion of the program reception was held for Mrs. Shouse, during which tea and sandwiches were served. Eigensinn Will Staged in January Entertains Members of German Play Cast Dean C. R.

Departmental Head Is Introduced by Dean Cooper Aaron Lee, junior in the College of Agriculture, from Depoy, Ky., was announced as winner of the Haggm Memorial Essay Contest at a general assembly of the faculty and students of the Agriculture College Wednesdays held at the Judging Pavllllon. Prizes amounting to $150 were awarded to five students who wrote on the subject, "The Eye of the Master Fattens His Cattle." Other prizes awarded were, second prize, $30, A. A.

Dunlap, assistant Secretary of Agriculture, was the principal speaker. Others on the program were Dean Thomas P. Cooper, who introduced Mr. Dunlap, and Russell J. Plue, who directed the assembly in singing "My Old Kentucky Home." Mr. Dunlap, said of himself that he was one member of the Department of Agriculture who was a farmer and who would always be one. He told of many of his while in college and of their value to him in later life. He continued by saying that the problem of the agriculture student today was to prepare to make profits by a study of economic conditions which lower the cost of production, rather than by raising the price of the commodity to the consumer. Professor Good, in announcing the winners, said that the amount distributed in prizes was made available by Mr. Haggln, a former student of the University, as a memorial to his father, who was always interested in the College of Agriculture. Valuable Articles Taken at Woodland Paraphernalia Worth 400 Is Stolen From Passion Players Saturday night $400.00 worth of costumes and antiques were stolen from the Woodland auditorium where the Passion Play was being presented. Ten swords, three iwlgs, one suit of armor, one sword of Pilate, which was a great antique, one helmet, and two Indian robes were taken. Students are suspected by the management as there were many In the cast who could have taken the articles. The management does not desire to prosecute anyone, but if the stolen goods are not returned at once they plan to turn the matter over to the police for investigation. The Sword of Pilate is an antique of much value and must be returned to avoid trouble as the Passion Players intend to exercise every possible means of recovering this priceless sword. The articles may bo left in the Kernel office or at any of the deans offices, or turned over to anyone connected with the presentation of the Passion Play and no questions will be asked. Taylor Addresses Fayette Teachers Dean W. S. Taylor, of the College was the principal of Education, speaker at the annual banquet of the Fayette County Teacher's Association held last night at the Phoenix hotel. The subject of his address was "What a Student Should Expect of a Teacher." Prof. W. S. Anderson, also of the University, who is chairman of the county school board, followed Dean Taylor, speaking on the topic, "What A School Shouud Expect of the County Board." The banquet program included several musical numbers by a quartet composed of University students. Among educational leaders present was W. O. Bell, superintendent of public instruction, in whose honor the banquet was given. 4 ml Wildcats' 1SW0 arranged for those who will attend, "Daddy" Boles and Coach Gamage have unlimbcred their fishing tackle and guns in the hope of bagging something besides a conference game. A special bit of game has been expressly reserved for Dr. Funk-dlrccthouscr. Residents have discovered a hugh mastadon about 10 miles i from Baton Rouge, and have wired him to bring his pick and shovel along, so that he can excavate and assemble the bones. The archacolo-cat- s' gist is pleased with the prospect and declares conference business will . have to wait until he has completed another chapter of his work on prehistoric animals. Plans for the New Year's Day Charity football game to be held in Atlanta, between teams picked from the northern and southern divisions of the conference, will be completed before the close of the meeting, Saturday. Word received from Baton Rouge yesterday indicated that Coach Gamage will be selected to coach the northern division team. KENTUCKY WILL USE "SUBMARINE OFFENSE' i Strength of Coach Mauer's Machine Is Very Potent Reserve By LAWRENCE CUUMP Saturday night at 8 o'clock, the edition of Coach Johnny Mauer's Wildcat basketball team, will tangle with the Georgetown College Tigers in the Men's Gymnasium. Three years ago, Georgetown took the State boys for a ride so we have the Wildcats in no mood for trifling. The Tigers are working under a Chester Dillon, who has recently completed a successful football season In his first year at Georgetown and who would like nothing better than to catch Coach Mauer's crew off guard to make his basketball team a howling success. All reports from Georgetown indicate that the Tigers will arrive In an ambulance and expect to be taken to the hospital immediately after the came which, of course, is so much bunk and for the reasons mentioned above the game .should prove unusually interesting for a curtain raiser. Coach Mauer will start a team composed of four seniors and one junior. The same combination that started practically all games last year. Captain McBrayer and last year's captain, Lawrence McGinnis. will start at guards, Milward at center, and Combs and Louis McGinnis at forwards. This comblna- bounce-pa- ss Kentucky's attack which was dubbed by Atlanta sports year as the "subwritters last marine offense" is one of the most spectacular of all methods used in advancing the ball down the floor. In the event that Coach Mauer is able to keep the jinx from climbing on board, .the Wildcats should enter the Southern Conference tournament In March as one of the most feared and respected teams in the South. In addition to the starting Jlneup, the varsity squad contains a number of capable reserves who can hold their own with any of the boys who will get the call tomorrow night. Spicer and Owens are just about on the par for forwards and George Yates will give Milward something to worry about at center before the season is much older. Bill Klelser, one of Coach Potter's proteges from the frosh of last year, is coming along fine and should develop into a first rate guard. McLane, who has previously played center and forward, is being groomed for a guard position and should see plenty of service before the end of the season. 1930 Guignol Players Display Talent In Season's Second Presentation "The Second Mrs. Tanqueray' Is Outstanding Dramatic Production ORGANIZATION TO GIVE BAZAAR DEPICTS TRAGEDY OF EARLY ENGLISH LIFE Y. W. C. A. Plans Sale of Articles at Patterson Hall Starring Honors Are Divided Booths; Woman's Club Do-at- With Meritorious Finesse r Cast in an Gifts. All-Sta- By THOMAS L. RILEY Plnero's "The Second Mrs. Tan queray" opened Monday night as the .second presentation on the. cur rent schedule of the Guignol theater and it is a production that the direction and management of that playhouse should feel justly proud. In fact, it is, in very way, one of the most outstanding plays that we have seen under the Guignol banner. "The Second Mrs. Tanqueray" tells a story entirely too complex to retell In a review of this nature. It is enough to say that it deals with English society and some of its strange facets that are hidden under the thin veneer of civilization. In individaul performances Edna Bradley Troxell in the title role Is paramount in importance, although. In our opinion, Ben Van Meter, in the part of Cayle Drummle who acts as a sort of confidant to the protagonists, deserves meritorious praise. Mrs. Troxell has a difficult characterization to enact which she does with a professional finesse and is materially assisted by George K. Brady, as Aubrey Tanqueray, her husband in the drama. The other members of the cask are, with a few exceptions, equally as convincing in their interpretations. Martin Glenn, Richard Car-ra- n, Joe Connelly, Willy King, HesMartin, Dorothy ter Green, Katherine Davis, John Noonan and Robert Thompson act in support. Miss Davis and Mr. Noonan are outstanding in this coterie. "The Second Mrs. Tanqueray" is decidedly a triumph for the technical side of the Guignol. Produced under the direction of Frank Fowler It stands as an almost perfect piece of stage artistry while the sets designed by Claude Walker are obviously the most pretentious In the history of the University's little theater. Beauty Queens W ill Be Named In Near Future Cecil B. DeMille and his associate judges are now preparing to select the Beauty Queens for the 1930 Kentuckian. Director Barnes of the beauty section announced last night that the names of the first eight winners would be made public by the staff next week. The annual "K" dance will be held on January 4, and will be the first social affair of the new year. At the dance the eight winners and all of the contestants will be guests of honor. Editor Couch and Director Barnes will introduce for the first time the young lady who Is nominated as Kentucky's Queen of Beauty. Judges this year are confronted with a greater task than ever beof the most beautifore. Forty-foful girls on the University campus are candidates for the beauty crown. This is by far the greatest number of contestants ever to enter the contest. Director Barnes is greatly pleased with the large representation and promises the largest and best beauty section in history. The beauty contest this year has attracted much favorable comment. candi Pictures of the forty-fodates have already appeared in the Cincinnati Post, and other papers. When the winners are announced, their pictures will be sent to many leading publications throughout the country as representative of the type of beauty to be found at the University of Kentucky.

M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A., at a cabinet meeting held Tuesday, December 10, voted unanimously to sponsor a Christmas tree and furnish Santa Claus for the children of the primary, first and second grades of this school. The visit of Santa will Wednesday afternoon bring Christmas to 180 children enrolled In those three grades. Plans for financing the tree were adopted upon the suggestion of the committee In charge and it was agreed that the custom of placing boxes over the campus as has heretofore been the custom, will be abandoned this year. Only the box under the decorated Christmas tree near the Administration building, will be used for students who wish to donate to the cause. It was further agreed that students and faculty members be given a special opportunity to contribute at the convocation to be held next Wednesday. The Pitkin Club, student luncheon club, and members of the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. cabinets, will furnish the remainder of the money necessary for the tree. Because the Christmas furnlsKed by the two organizations will be practically the only Christmas the majority of the children at Lincoln School will receive, a special plea to the students to contribute has been made by Mr. Peak, secretary of the Y. M. C. A. and Miss Margaret Lewis, secretary of the Y. W. C. A. The money will be used to buy toys, fruits, 'candles, 'and nuts for the children. Miss Bessie Stone, teacher of these grades, will assist the cabinet members in the distribution of the gifts.
