The cast selected is as follows: Henry Brown Junius Millard Al Weiman Paul Green Sophie Bland Nell Pulliam May Dexter Mary Lair Lucille Stillwell Mrs. Podge Margaret Yungblut Mrs. Hawley Ray Hopper Patrick O'Malley Three minor characters have not yet been chosen, but they will be selected before rehearsals which will begin the first of next week. Mr. Junius Millard, as Henry Brown, with Al Weimann, will be remembered for the exceptional ability he displayed Amateur Night, when he took the lead in "A This play was House of Cards." awarded the prize, given by the Stroller organization to the best of the three plays presented. Mr. Al Weimann, as Paul Green, nn ambitious young author, has experi-- . ence combined with his natural ability to act, having taken part in the Stroller production "Seventeen," given in the spring of 1924. Miss Nell Pulliam, as Sophie Bland, the leading feminine role, is a new star on the Stroller dramatic horizon, but a star that will shine brightly, and will bo long remembered by those who are fortunate enough to "Fifty-Fifty.- try-ou- ts see "Fifty-Fifty- ." Miss Mary Lair, of Cynthiana, will take the part of May Dexter. Miss Lair made the eligibility list this fall, when she took a part in "Overtones," one of tho plays given on Amateur Night. Miss Lucille Stillwell, as Mrs. Podge, is carrying the character role. Miss Stillwcll's natural talent, combined with her former experience in such parts in Stroller casts, gives her a finish equalled by few amateurs. Miss Margaret Yungblut, as Mrs. Hawley, has all the dignity and poise, together with histronic ability, to capably take this part She took u similar part in "Seventeen" last year Mr. Ray Hopper, as Patrick O'Malley, the Irish janitor, furnishes the laughs for the entire performance. This is a very capable cast, and one that will make this productou one of the premier presentations of the Sti oiler organization. 0 T f SPONSORS ARF L f THIS SEMESTER Maria McElroy is Colonel Sponsor for the Batallion SERVE 1 SEMESTER Captains Are Assigned By Their Commanding Officers Miss Maria McElroy, a junior in the college of Arts and Sciences, and a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma fraternity was chosen Colonel Sponsor for the entire R. O. T. C. regiment at a meeting of the advanced rnnrsn mnn AVn.ln,.,!.,,, The usual method of electing s for the different elements of the regiment was departed from this year in that sponsors were elected only for the remainder of this year. This will enable the cadet officers of next year to select their sponsors to serve during the entire year and will obviate the serving together of officers and sponsors who received their commissions at different times. In the future, the advanced course, being most actively concerned, will elect all sponsors. So far as is possible, the desires of the individual officers, concerning the choice of sponsors for the respective units under their command, will be respected by their brother officers. The batallion majors are: First Batallion, Mae Murray Harbison; Second Batallion, Marie Langford; Third Batallion, Norma Carter. Captain sponsors who are to be assigned to companies with the commanders who selected them, at the discretion of the Military department, are: Marjorie Blackburn, Deedy Price, Dorothy Chapman, Alice Thompson, Evelyn Wright, Mabel C. Graham, Elizabeth Regenstein, Lucille Stillwell, Lucille Bywater, Marie Pfeif-fe- r. These sponsors are to assume office with the publication of this notice and they will be expected to cooperate actively with the officers of the unit in advancing the interests of the Military department in the University of Kentucky. spon-sor- THETA SIGMA FOUNDED IN ! PHf 909 Purpose is to Recognize the Superior Women Journalists Theta Sigma Phi, woman's honorary journalistic fraternity, was organized at the University of Washington on April 8, 1909, to recognize ability among women students specializing in Journalism. There are twenty-fiv- e chapters in the national organization and the badge is a gold linotype matrix, displaying a torch and the Greek letters for Theta Sigma Phi. Chi cchapter wnB established at the University of Kentucky in 1920 and pledges new members from the Junior class annually, recognizing also the outstanding journalist girl of the Sophomore class, who is initiated after she has made her junior standing. The national organization will hold its annual convention in Seattle, Wash., in April and each of the active chapters will be represented by a delegate who will take part in the legislation of the governing body for the coming year. "The Matrix," a quarterly magazine, is edited by Theta Sigma Phi and the contributors are members of the active and alumnae chapters ami the regular magazine staff. The subscribers are women students in journalism, women in the profession and many newsmen and non professionals. The great interest of the order is the maintenance of the Theta Sigma Phi Register, the service of which is open as an employment agency to any woman in journalism, whether a momber of the urganUntion or not.
