Part of The Kentucky Kernel

t m YtititL ENTUCKY KERNEL EXCEPTION IS TAKEN 1 TO KERNEL EDITORIAL Stroller Champion Differs With Editor as to the Performance. The editor The Kernel is in re- kcipt oflhb following letter: J' Nothing Is more odious to tho Writer's mind, than communications to newspapers In which wrongs or alleged wrongs are discussed and personal grievances are debated for tho benefit of tho public. However, In a case in which the roputatloho"f a student organization Is (cssailed, when a "rap" is taken at thb Try-ou- t Committee of Tlio Strollers, nnd more or less unkind remarks are hurled at those students who were made" members of Tlio St'roile'rs, 'the (writer feels that some effort should bo made to bring the facts before the student body. r tlt Is generally understood that the writer of the editorial headed "Amateur Night," which appeared in the last issue of The Kentucky Kernel, was not the but one of his j assistants, but las the as the writer understands it, is responsible for the editorial policy of his paper the remarks which will be made wijl of necessity be directed at him with the hope, however, that the author of the exaggerated article In ques-tipwill take the' time to read the facts in the case. While welcoming constructive criticism in any form whatsoever The Strollers still desire the criticism to be based on fact. The writer pleads guilty to the charge that the acts presented Amateur Night were somewhat below the average; to the remainder of the charge the plea will be not guilty. The hundreds of students who crowded into the chapel Amateur Night seemed highly entertained by the 'iRube act, a poorly prepared blackface and a worse burlesque." In passing we wonder just what the writer of the editorial had for dinner thai night that caused him to have such an outlook on life. 'Perhaps he had attended the Ada Meade the night before and was suffering, because of o"f . Editor-in-Chi- Editor-in-Chie- n the contrast; "We were led by misinformation to expect an- entertainment o merit," says the article. "Misinformation" proved an able leader and the editor a willing follower when one considers the remainder of the article. As the writer shall endeavor to stick to the truth and nothing but the truth In the- remainder of this communication it" is suggested that the editor secure ait interpreter or guide before what is to follow. .'Seventy-onapplicants wore accepted to full membership in The Strollers. Not many more than thlB tried out. In fact, so far as we are able to learn, only one or two Freshmen without connections were refused admittance," boldly states the article. Records of the committee show that apabout one hundred and twenty-livplicants submitted their names and that of this number more than one hundred appeared before the committee. The facts speak.' "Three priests, so we are told, crawled onto the darkened stage, died, and forthwith became members." Aptly expressed we must admit but without a semblance of truth. "Misinformation" leads again, disguised as "wo are told." Tho facts are: Two of the three priests were admitted as Strollers because they had speaking g e e parts in two nets Jin whioh they tried lt jtFjo editor stjjl tjio dny beforc. flit leary of (heir a perhaps n private. .try-ocou'lu be'.krrangel). Tho writer admits that some mistakes mny have been made; after hearing recitations ami witnessing, plays for four afternoons rtnd- two nights; after hearing everything from "Roses are, red and violets are blue," to "Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your eara," tho patience of nny committee is 'likely to bo ex hausted. Mistakes may have been made in previous years and the writer is willing, to wager that .mistake will ho made 'in tho future. Having had s occasion to witness tho last year and having seen the annual Stroller play of last year, '"The Climbers," the writer Is led, to beljove that Judged strictly on the merit shown In tho possibly three of tho amateur "Climbers" cast would have mado tho Strollers. a The Strollers had undertaken larger program this year than ever before and plans were made for enlarging the membership. The plans now contemplate the presentation each month of some sort of entertainment for tli' student body. Several other plans now are under consideration for making The 'Strollers' one of the largest and strongest organization on the campus. It is not the writer's desire to start a controversy in this matter and 'this communication, which the writer trusts will be published, should set the facts before the student body. Let this be considered final. Respectfully yours, A Stroller: miC n ono-ac- t' try-out- try-out- o Y. M. C. A. By George Gregory. lUHIVFRSITY . Mi 111 EXTENSIONe Vi , 111 T Be Held.

Doctor Noe said: "The future of America lies in its youth, and largely that part of its youth which is in col- lcge. Education is idealistic' but we would not have it otherwise.
