This Is the most perfect produc tion eved given by this splendid play in its entirty having been produced by the students themselves. The scenery used in this production was made In the woodshop of the Engineering College and designed and richly painted by the students of the Art Department. The draperies,. pictures, tables, lamps, in fact every, thing used in the elabor ate drawing room of the wealthy Mrs. Crosby is a reproduction of the talent of students of the University, given in the interest and appreciation of the splendid efforts of the Strollers. This play is perfect in every detail, every actor so perfectly suited to his part and so thouroughly sure of him is given self that the performance behind the without the manuscript scenes, or without anyone to prompt. Friends and patrons who witnessed the performance in Paris expressed themselves very favorably and went so far as to say that this is the best play, including professional road shows that has ever been given in that city. A section of seats was reserved for a theatre party from Mt. Sterling, including the Senior Classes of the City and County High School and the cast of this seasons theatrical production of the Senior Class. There were about forty-livin the party, chaperoned by Mrs. Ben R. Turner, Mrs. Dan Prewitt, Mrs. Oldham Greene and Mrs. Leo Orear.

The following resolutions of sympathy were passed by Theata Sigma Phi. honorary fraternity in Journalism of which she was a member, by the Catholic Club of the University and the faculty of the College of Arts and Sciences. "The University community is shocked to hear of the death this morning of Miss Jessie Dodd, who is a graduate student in the College of Arts and Sciences. She completed the work for the Bachelor degree in January and was continuing as a graduate student in the department of English. Altho ill at the time, she was in the classroom as late as Friday with her usual cheerfulness of spirit attending to her duties without complaint. Miss Dodd was a young woman who was graced with personal charm and who had high ideals. She went about her work conscientiously and with quiet dignity, winning increased regard the more intimately one learned to know her. "A delightful companion among friends and a serious student, she had not long been in the University before she enjoyed the friendship of all who know her. Her ambition was to be of service to others. In her last Interview with her professors she spoke with enthusiasm of the work she wasaboutto ongage in after leaving the University and wished, that she could do good to others and reflect credit upon the Institution. "The University has sustained a loss and we mourn her death. Therefore, be it resolved: that the faculty of the College of Arts and Sciences express their Bonso of loss and offer their sympathy to the family and that a copy of these resolutions be sent to the fam ily and to the press.

The question under discussion is: "Resolved: That the present Dillingham Immigration law be retained as a permanent" measure: namely that threo per cent of each nationality which was resident in this country in 1910, be the only annual quota allowed to enter the United States." The University of Kentucky will be represented by J. L. Hays and C. M. C. Porter, and Vanderbilt by Morgan Green and D. H. Rosier. The judges will be H. V. Chlsney of Frankfort; Dr. W. B. Jones, Georgetown; and Otto Rothert of Louisville. As this is the only intercollegiate debate to be hold at the University this year it is especially urged that every University student be present. The topic to bo discussed Is very pertinent. The Dillingham law was recently by Congress as a temporary measure, but It Is not yet decided whether it will be retained as a permanent measure. The national Immigration Board Is considering whether it is a wise policy or not. The University of Kentucky will debate the affirmative side and Vanderbilt the negative side of the question.
