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
see "Fifty-Fifty- ."
Miss Mary Lair, of Cynthiana, will

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
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
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.
