The shows will be full, and the tea rooms, and the taverns. How joyous life is when o ne can deposit dad's check and take up those of frigid temperature strewn about in moments of prodigal recklessness. Fellow students here is a riddle: Why is it that dinner dates always come toward the first of the month? Life seems filled with tragic problems like " that one.

There is something wonderful about gold-digg- 1$.' being young and having a momentary bank account you can forget all about the penury of the week before and never consider the possibility of being in want again. Past days of poverty are like nightmares experienc ed by someone else feature visions of destitution unlikely stories to be forgotten in the lightheartedness of the present. After all, being broke "ain't" as bad as it might seem. You learn to take it casually along with profes sors, fallen arches, examinations, love, measles, and fraternity dues, one of the ordinary problems of existence to be met or evaded, and at any rate, to be dropped into oblivion.

SAX IS INSTRUCTOR A course in art appreciation for journalists' will be started the beginning ef ' $ext semester, according to an awwBcement from the journalism department. Professor Carl Sax will conduct the class, according to' the announcement. This is the first time a course of this type has been conducted for journalism students. It will be a three hour course and the probable time, according to Professor Sax, will be the second hour on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The course will include the subjects of criticism of plays, appreciation of settings, appreciation of music, design paintings, and architecture, according to Professor Sax, who further states that the course does not pretend to develop art critics in one semester but is merely an introduction to the field and intends to give familiarity and scope with the subject. The course is intended and designed to point the way out of certain difficulties that beset the path of young journalists who are obliged to report art exhibitions or give dramatic criticism, according to Professor Grehan of the journalism department. It is very frequently the case that graduates from the journalism department can secure more advantageous positions if they are equipped to report art exhibitions, dramas, concerts, and other art events that are becoming an increasing part of American community life. This is especially true in moderate sized cities where specialists are a luxury, according to Professor Sax. Mr. Sax, also states that many of ourjeading critics have obtained their prominent metropolitan (CONTINUED ON PAGE EIGHT) Honor System for All Classes Is Advocated Omicron Delta Kappa Takes Steps To Inaugurate This Movement Here Nu Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa, national honorary campus leaders fraternity of the university, decided at its last meeting to advocate the introduction of the student honor system in all departments of the university. Declaring that such a movement must come from within the student body, definite plans were made to bring the idea before the students, according to Charles Heidrick, president of the fraternity. If the honor system is to be installed at the University of Kentucky the students themselves must request that it be tried again. The honor system was installed at the university several years ago. The trial given did not prove very satisfactory as there were many students who did not vote for the issue and did not support it. Students of the university who are interested in the movement should support the plan of installing the honor system in case of a vote. Accepts Position John J.

AID The Carnegie Corporation of New York has just announced 20 colleges to which their celebrated art collections are to be sent, and of this num ber the University of Kentucky is the only state university to be so benefited. These collections on which the Carnegie Corporation has been at work for more than a year, are now complete and ready for distribution to 17 colleges in the United States and to three colleges in Canada. Jt was the belief that instruction in art was impossible without proper equipment, no matter how good the instructor and earnest the student, that the Carnegie Corporation appro priated $100,000 to make up collections which should serve in the teach- gkef art as the laboratory serves in the teaching of science. The collection, which includes reproductions, original prints, textiles and books, are designed to stand as a n systematic representation of the of Occidental art. In them are shown the works of outstanding men, of different periods, different schools, different techniques and distinctive cultures. With such a collection an instructor can make his references in He can illustrate a the concrete. generalization. A student can have aesthetic truths visualized. The canons of art are studied in art's objects rather than in the abstract which is the only way they can be understood even if they can be studied otherwise.

Bible discussion groups have been mitted before March 1. Should the management use this play for Romany subscription performance, an additional $50.00 royalty will be paid for the use of it. The Romany is very eager to afford encouragement and opportunity to all those interested in writing and wishes to point out to students the valuable opportunity to gain experience in thb fascinating field. The management wishes to urge those submitting plays to deal with characters, locality, and situation with which they are familiar. Plays dealing with youth, the home, the local community or the campus or more likely to be chosen than plays dealing with international continental society. Purely imaginative plays may be safely attempted. It is ako advised that those intending to compete write the director of the Romany in care of the art department for an appointment any afternoon except Saturday or Monday from 3 until 6 p. m. and the appointment will be confirmed' by post card. The management asks that one allow four days to elapse from the time of sending in application until date of appointment. The Director of Romany will advise students as to suitability and probability of theme from the production point of view and will be glad to give criticism and suggestions as to handling of material.
