It Is being rehearsed under the skillful supervision of Professor Farquhar, assisted by Lilly Cromwell, president of the society, and the staff of managers. This play, by Thackeray, is a vitally interesting comedy, and in the material selected from the large numbers of applicants for parts in the play, has been found histrionic talent sufficient to put this production on with unsurpassed success. The story is of Mr. Milliken, a pros perous merchant and a widower with two children, who is taiten care of and governed by his mother-in-law- . Lady Kicklebury. His servants take part whenever it is possible. His brother-in-law- , Lord Kicklebury, has come to pay him a visit of indefinite length. He is a parasite, living on his relatives as much as possible so that It will not be necessary for him to work. Mrs. Milliken, Mr. Milliken's mother, does her duty faithfully by coming over every once in a while to see that and incidentally he is not to give orders concerning the administration of his household. Miss 'Pryor is governess for the Milliken children. Howells, a servant in the household, falls in love with her and Mary, a maid in the household, is in love with Howells.

The strong cast culminating In the powerful interpretation of Dick Sterling's role by Emery Frazler, was a cast of stars. The financial success of the play was equaled by an artistic success, a step higher in that gradual line of remarkable Stroller productions. Owing to the fact that the Kernel went to press early Friday morning, a complete review of the play will be necessarily deferred to next week's issue. G. COLVIN ADDRESSES STUDENTS IN CHAPEL Superintendent Urges Democracy of Education and Opportunity in Kentucky g Nis-be- ', No. 25 LEXINGTON, KY., APRIL 9, 1920 VOL. X. Ti-C- Patronize t, "A strange question was asked in a strange book. A rich young man went one day to the only source of Information and inspiration and asked: 'What shall I do?' There' is no more important question now for any student to ask," said Honorable George Colvin, State Superintendent of Public Instruction, at chapel Tuesday. The board of trustees of the University was present at this chapel exercise. Mr. Colvin continued: "In my judg ment, it does not matter much what you do, but how you do it and your attitude toward it The answer to that question, 'What shall I do?' translated into the modern language, would mean go to school and get an education, then sell your education in terms of service to humanity. When you have gotten your education, you thing on have the most priceless earth, you have youth, youth with its dreams, enthusiasm, sell it all in terms of service to Kentucky. Unless you do this, Kentucky falls. Sell your faith In life. I challenge you to have faith in life. Believe that life is just; believe that life is fine." In addition, he said: "I am compelled to believe in the education of all people, the democracy of opportunity; yet there must be an aristocracy Deof achievement and leadership. mocracy must mean democracy of opportunity for all children. There are thousands in the Kentucky mountains who would be here If they only had the chance. In speaking of the womanhood of Kentucky, he said: "Never was such a responsibility Imposed upon womankind as now. In the hands of the womanhood of America Is held the destiny of this nation, for ninety-eigh- t per cent of the teachers of America are women."

CADET HOP SATURDAY. ASKS BOARD FOR HELP President McVey read his quarterly report at a meeting of the Board of Trustees of the University of Kentucky in the President's office yesterday afternoon. The report summarizes the present situation at the University on increased cost of operation, necessity for an increase in salaries, recent legislation affecting the University, housing of students, housing facilities for faculty members, sites for fraternity buildings, necessity for additional buildings and equipment, the Memorial Building situation, the University library, present lack of organization among alumni of the institution, the Student Loan Fund, and the development of special departments. "The increased cost of living for students is rapidly becoming a men ace to democracy," said Dr. McVey, "and the increased cost of higher ed ucation is making it more and more difficult for Kentucky boys and young women to procure a good education, thereby limiting the possibilities of their leadership. The day is past when a man can reach leadership except of through training. The majority those of real native ability come from homes where the income is small."
