Next Monday night in the 'Campus Playhouse, a group of University students will appear before an audience composed of studenjs, faculty members, and citizens of Lexington, in the first program given In the interests of community drama. It is impossible now to estimate tho value of this great movement which had its auspicious beginning in the formal opening of the Campus Playhouse on March 25. Undoubtedly its development will prove an influence in its consequences; a tremendous factor in bringing about that unity of sentiment and interests which make for the ideal community. of man than For truly there is no instinct more important in the make-uthe play Instinct. It is only those who have learned to play together who are fully able to face and solve the graver problems of life together. And this instinct reaches its highest gratification in the drama, whether the individual witnesses, or better still, takes part in the production of plays. In spite of the seeming mania for the screen and for the cheaper class of drama, which characterizes tho pleasure - seeking crowds of today, there is unmistakable evidence of a desire for some form of entertainment which will arouse more than a light laugh and more than a passing thrill of excitement. This has been foreseen by those who have arranged the tentative program for this initial season of dramatics in the Campus Playhouse. The pro-- ' ductions chosen were most happily selected for their artistic ability to please the intellect as well as the emotions. No institution can stand alone or be in its activities, in this day when it is possible for nation to reach out and grasp hands with nation. The development of that mighty force known as community spirit, which received a powerful impetus in those days of nation-widduring the World War, will not pause in its growth until citizens from all departments of the life of the city are ready to unite for the best interests of the community. And it is only through leadership in the development of this forco that the University may hold its place of dignity as the State's center of higher learning. Therefore the Kernel desires to congratulate, and in the name of the student body, to thank those faculty members and students who have expended time and energy to make possible this new activity in the University, an activity which it believes will break down many intangible barriers which have always existed and prevented true fellowship between student and student, student and citizen, student and business man. d e FOOD MoCarty: "Jim, what you prefer?"

TERRIBLE. VERLY, VERILY. (Showing how Spring hath its disadvantages as well as its advantages.) Lo, the Spring cometh and confusion relgneth in the heart of the student. His brain refuseth to function properly, and his fancy turneth to thoughts of first one thing and then two. Even though the professor lov- eth a cheerful worker, and "A" cometh to him who laboreth earnestly and diligently therefor, the Young Man banlsheth thoughts of wisdom from his mind, and turneth to Folly for solace. Verily, the age-oldisease of Spring taketh a foul hold on his spirit, and Work seeketh more fertile soils. Pep loveth the Stude no more, and its affections elsewhere.

"Wo do not know of tho royal road to success, but wo aro sure of ono thing, It does not run parallel with the line of least resistance," Bald Julius Wolf, nctlvo member of tho Tau Kappa Alpha fraternity, at the annual pledge day exercises in chapel Friday, in which tho following men were pledged: Clifford E. Smith, Nelson B. Conkwright, John McKenzlo. Goo- bol Porter nnd Herbert Haley. Ed. Hardin, active member, presided. Continuing, Mr. Wolf said: "Popular applauso is small recompense indeed for the labor and the blows that we receive in accomplishing. "Somey one must strive to represent in oratory, and to carry the standard of Kentucky on the rostrum." Jasper McBrayer, of Lawrenceburg, was the next speaker. After expressing his appreciation of the revival of interest in oratory at the University of Kentucky, he said" in part: "We have heard it said that the golden age of eloquence has gone. As long as men have souls, and the heart responds to sentiments, oratory will never die. To calm, to persuade, to warn, to move to action, is the aim of eloquence. The charm of the spoken word will remain forever. As long as misery and want are existent, the orator will be demanded to speak for the people." In closing, he said: "Let use resolve, that here in the shadow of the monument erected to one of the world's greatest orators, will be developed the spoken word, that the future shall be greater than the past, and to that end that the history of Kentucky, rich with legend and gold and romance, shall not die." The Tau Kappa Alpha, honorary or atorical fraternity, was organized at the University of Kentucky in 1913. Membership is open only to those who nave represented Kentucky in oratory, and are a source of pride to the University. Its aim is to uphold the dignity of the University on th platform, to do honor to those who have striven to uphold Kentucky on the rostrum. The active members are: Milton Revill, L. F. Bisheoff, Julius Wolf, Jasper McBrayer, E. Hardin and Professor Noe.
