Phi Mu Alpha, Musical
Fraternity, to Sponsor Production
"The Messiah," Hnndcls immortal
oratorio, will bo given the latter part
of April under the direction of Professor Lampcrt. In celebration of
the one hundredth anniversary of the
rendition of "The Messiah," in New
York, the New York Choral Society
recently presented the oratorio. "The
Messiah" is considered one of the
greatest works' from a religious and
musical standpoint, giving the scheme
of Salvation as presented in the Bible,
the prophecy of the coming of the Sa
vior, His suffering, and our redemp
tion through His blood.
The university presentation of this
work will be unique in that we will
use our own orchestra and chorus,
supplemented by singers from Lex
ington and surrounding towns. Phi
Mu Alpha, musical fraternity of the
university, is sponsor for the presen
tation, and is organizing the forces
outside of Lexington, and the sue
cess of the presentation will be large
ly due to its efforts. The presenta
tion will not only be a civic cxpres
sion of the university and of Lex
ington, but will be an expression of
Kentucky in such an endeavor.
For an adequate presentation of
this work, a chorus of three hundred
voices will be needed.
The Music de
nartment desires that every student
who is interested in proving his or
her ability as a singer will come out
for practice. The showing of ability
in this production will be in a meas
ure a stepping stone for entrance in
to the Glee Clubs.
All students who are interested in
taking part in the chorus are invited
to 'come to White Hall, room 301, to
day at 3:30 for tryouts.
The SuKy Circle, in response to a
request from the Paris high school,
established a pep organization at that
institution last Monday. The name
of the group is "Parisians," and their
purposes nre similar to that of the
circle at the university, the fostering of athletics.
At the regular meeting of the Su
Ky Circle yesterday, plans were discussed concerning the establishment
of similnr organizations in other high
schools throughout the state.
plan outlined at present is for the
pep club to foster the high
school group and in this way to bring
them in closer touch with the uni
If such a plan can bo worked out,
it is thought that it will tend to create
a keener interest among the prepara
tory students in the state university
and will bring a large number of high
school graduates here.

Floyd Collins in Sand Cave, relinher close vigilance for n
short while, Monday, only to claim
him again, after the physicians had
examined the victim.
According to Dr. Funkhouser, who
has just returned from the cave after a stay of ten days, every possible effort was made and lives were
risked in futile attempts to rescue
He said that there were
many heroic deeds performed by the
workers which will never bo known.
The early efforts of friends of Col
lins before the state took the matter
in charge, deserve great praise. Dr.
Funkhouser also said that the report
that the imprisonment was a "put-up- "
affair was absolutely unfounded,
and was a discredit to those who had
worked so faithfully.
Ho said that the ones to whom
much credit should be given are Lieu
tenant Governor H. H. Denhardt, who
was in charge of the military control;
H. T. Carmichacl, supervisor of the
work; Roy Anderson, N. F. Ford, Ben
Wells, and John Gerald, who risked
their lives to survey the underground
passage in order to locate the shaft.
Dr. Funkhouser said, "Sand Cave
is not really a cave at all, but merely
a passage through a 'fall,' which Col

in the state in the past seventeen
years. He said "In 1908 there were
perhaps not more than fifty public

today there are approximately 500."
Mr. Godman emphasized the great
need of health education and moral
instruction, pointing out the need of
trained teachers for the work. "We'l

TO PLAY CENTRE
Game Marks Close of
Season on Home
'Cats Rate Well as Contenders for Southern Title
Saturday night the Wildcats sing
their 1925 swan song to the basketball fans of Lexington.
night the final game of the regular
season will be played at the University of Kentucky gymnasium with
the ancient foe, Centre, as opponents
to the Blue and White.
Tho Kentucky basketeers are at the
top of their form, as was demonstrated in their latter games on the home
floor, and expect to make a winning
finish to a season that has been marked by many ups and downs.
Wednesday following tho Centre tilt,
the Kentucky five leaves for Atlanta
to take part in the hectic struggle
for the southern championship held
every year in the Georgia metropolis.
With one win over tho Colonels,
registered earlier in the season at
and with victories over
teams that have decisively defeated
the Centre quintet, the Wildcats anticipate little trouble in bunding out
a defeat to the Danville aggregation.
But the Centre teams are known for
their fighting proclivities and will
give the 'cats a run for their money.
It would be particularly gratifying
to the Colonels to win from Kentucky
this season, as it has been two years
since she has achieved a victory over
the Wildcats on the basketball floor.
Friends of the locals feel that they
have a stronge chance to win the
southern title this year. When the
Tulane quintet went down to defeat
before the fierce onslaught of Captain McFarland and his teammates,
one of the best teams in the south
had succumbed to defeat. The other
strong teams in the tourney will probably be limited to the fives from the
Universities ot worm
bama and Georgia.
Georgia both have wins to their
credit over the 'cats. If Applegran's
men flash the game they are capable
of playing, the cheering sections
might as well begin to limber up their
