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. Williams, of Scotts- vllle; third prize, $20, William G.
Survant, of Owensboro; fourth prize,
$15, Theodore Milby, of Buffalo; and
fifth prize, $15, Henry B. Cravens,

Announcement of the outcome of
the contest came at the close of
the assembly at which Renick W.
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.

Paraphernalia Worth 400 Is
Stolen From Passion
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
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.

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
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.

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,
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

judges are now preparing to select
the Beauty Queens for the 1930

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.
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.
