Gillis, Registrar of the University, will leave for New York Sunday, to attend the seventh annual meeting of the American Association of Collegiate Registrars, of which he is secretary. "high-uppity-u- (Continued on Page 2) L REGISTRARS' Miss Rebecca Smith, as "Bessie Brayton," the breezy Western product, who "does stunts" at parties for the crowd, could not be surpassed. Miss Smith has been prominent in other Stroller plays. Waverly Brlggs and Leonard Taylor as "the boys," are well fitted for their parts. Waverly Brlggs as Billy plays the languid society man to perfection, while Leonard Taylor in the role of Tommy, the sport, is a husky young athlete. Major Dldsworth, in the hands of Jim Farmer, becomes a real villain, with a most fascinating "English accent." Willie Lee Smith is the typi- - BY "WEATHER MAN" Wildcats Will Meet Ohio Wesleyan For First Game of Season ANNOUNCE SCHEDULE Even the pessimist, who had prophesied an unmerciful trouncing for the Kentuckians at the hands of the Michiganders and a bribed umpire, experienced a severe shock when that unscrupulous official, Father Weather, Not "snowed under" the Wildcats. until the Northerners had departed for the Sunny South, did the locals s recover sufficiently to brush the from their eyes and realize that no arrangements for a future game had been made. On account of this post mortem visit of winter, "Pety" Moore and his assistants have again been busily engaged preparing the diamond for the opening game of the season. Likewise, Coach Tuttle has been adding some finishing touches to the training of his Cats. With the aditional three days' practice before the Initial fray with Ohio Wesleyan he feels confident that the scalps of the Ohioans will become the possession of the Kentucky Wildcats on Thursday, April 13. Blood once tasted, the Cats cannot help but take a second victory from the Ohio lads on Friday, April 14. Coach Tuttle has announced the following line-ufor Thursday's game: MoClellan will pitch, with Senator Crum receiving; Captain Park will hold down first base with Roark and Schrader covering second and third respectively. "Red" Spaulding will guard the left field with Frazier in center and Mcllvain in right. With the exception of the pitcher will probably remain the the line-usame for Friday's game. For that contest the box will be filled by Server, Cooper or Grubbs. The official baseball schedule, as announced by Doctor J. J. Tigert, follows: April 13 and 14 Ohio Wesleyan at Lexington. at April 18 Georgetown College Lexington. April 21 and 22 Ohio State at Lexington.

Humphreys and Secretary Gillis calls for papers and addresses by Clyde Furst, secretary of the Carnegie Foundation, and Professor Charles R.

The purpose of the association is to provide by means of an annual conference and otherwise for the spread of information on prob lems of common interest, and to promote the professional welfare of its members. The great Interest that is being manifested in the work is indicated by the steady growth in membership from every portion of the United States. p p Don't forget the Lyceum musical offering in chapel April 14.

SHAKESPEARE PAGEANT Scenes From 'Tempest,' 'As You Like It' and 'Winter's Tale' OUTDOOR STAGING The annual meeting of the Ken-- J tucky Educational Association will be held at Louisville, with headquarters at the Henry Watterson Hotel, April inclusive, the general subject of discussion to be "Economy and Efficiency in Public School Education." The University of Kentucky faculty members who will be prominent at the meeting are Dr. Edward Tuthill, President of the Department of History and Civics of the association, and Prof. George Roberts, President of the Agriculture and Horticulture Department. Both are on the executive committee. Professor McHenry Rhoades, twice president of the association, will give a talk at the meeting of He will also the former presidents. speak on "College Graduates as High School Teachers" before the Department of Higher Education, of which Dr. John J. Tigert is secretary. In the Department of Language, A May fete performance, probably the most unique of the hundreds of celebrations in honor of William Shakespeare, ranking in standard with the highest universities, and other productions in originality of conception and execution, will be given Tuesday afternoon, May 16, 1916, at 2:30 on the cmapus of the University of Kentucky, under the auspices of the English Club of the University. Not only does the English Club's pageant expect to measure up to the highest standard of selection of plays, and acting, but to excel in producing in combination the most delightful scenes of four of Shakespeare's noted ly charming comedies. From "As You Like It," Rosalind, Celia, Orlando and Touchstone will emerge from the forest of Arden to talk of love; "Winter's Tale" will visualize the dainty, lost Perdita, and the dashing Florizel; the delightful calm of "The Tempest" will be embodied in the bringing to life of Prospero, Miranda, Ariel and Ferdinand; and "Midsummer Night's Dream" will produce not only the fiery Queen Elizabeth, Theseus and his spouse, Hippolyta, but also the joyous comedy of Quince the carpenter, Snug the joiner, Bottom the weaver, Flute, the bellows-vendeSnout, the tinker, and Harneling, the tailor. These scenes are to be interwoven with Shakespearean music and dances, e dance, fairies' dance and a a rendition of the famous Morris Mrs. R. L. dances to be featured. Stout will train the dancers. The executive committee in charge of the "pageant," the name by which the entire production will be known, isXcomposed of Professor L. L. Dantz-le- r Professor E. F. Farquhar, and Misfi Frances Jewell, acting with this committee, is the student group representing the three upper classes and the graduate school, Mr. F. D. Mayes, Miss Nancy Innes, Mr. John Marsh and Miss Christine Hopkins.

Mr. Egbert is considered the best paper authority in the South and is often called out of the State to give his services as a paper expert. During the three years he has been connected with the University Press, Mr. Egbert has been the means of saving the University and Experiment Station several thousand dollars which was being expended on publications printed elsewhere. The cast of "Father and the Boys," said to be the best ever selected by the Strollers, under the splendid man agement of "Bill" Shlnnlck, Is ready for the initial performance of the play to be given tonight at tie Opera .House, after twe months of hard work. The play itself, George Ade's masterpiece, is considered by many who have seen it produced, the funniest bit of comedy ever put on the stage. The story of the waking up of "Father," who is eight years behind the procession, until he leads a life too gay for even the "boys" to follow, presents many possibilities. With a roulette game and a real horse race it does not lack spice. The "girls" play quite an important part too, with the happy culmination of three romances in the last act. Emery Frazier,- as "Father", is very clever in his part. He plays most naturally the character of the staid business man, who, for the sake of the "boys", enters into the things they enjoy, and has such a good time at it that they have to beg him to settle down once more. Mr. Frazier had a part in last year's Stroller play, "Charlie's Aunt."
