And my heart is full of songs. WHENCE THIS EASY Circulation Manic Have you ever noticed how many students boast of the little amount of work that they do, how they "never crack a book," how they propound upon the theory that college is merely a social institution, and then, having heard them, looked at their standings? It is very odd, but nevertheless it seems that these eternally indolent collegians make the best student standings. Their eternal indolence is merely a sham, covering earnest study because they are ashamed to admit it. There are very few students who will willingly admit that they spend a good portion of their time following scholastic endeavors. Many of their professors receive impression that they am lust itnlntfri!rfH nhspniors ni-- olnccrnnm """-- "i sitters. It is a shame that such a state of con- ditions must exist, yet it seems that it is merely a custom created by some older student body and upheld by precedent. The Engineer, Law and Commerce students are the only ones on the campus who cheerfully and proudly admit that they study. They are to be highly com- 'or their independence of thought and expression. The Kernel is condoning the fact that in this j age of independence the average college student allows such an old and useless precel dent overrun him.

Not having read the work, we cannot comment upon It except to the effect that the story is aeciaeaiy irasny ana tne dialogue is exceptionally poor. "Strangers May Kiss" concerns a wife who discovers that men are not always appreciative, wot a particularly new Hollywood formula but the excellent, cast, Including Robert Montgomery, Neil Hamilton, Marjorie Rambcau, and Irene Rich, performs very creditably under the smooth direction of George Fitzmaurice.

VIRGINIA MALIN. Spring Semester, 1931 at the Lexington Unit, Kentucky Hairdressers Association RoamiN' full reign In the direction for it is on this score that "Dishonored" falls to please. It is not often that a picture Is overdl-rcctc- d but here we see the evil effects of that practice. "Dishonored" is so technical in structure that there Is no space for drama or entertainment despite the fact that the original story, authored by von Sternberg, shows promise of much dramatic power. The plot involves a seductifc spy In tho late war who captures her victims through physical lure. By falling In love with a rival spy, she brings about her own destruction. However, the camera and sound effects arc so revolutionary and the utter unimportance of dialogue is so striking that "Dishonored" deserves high praise as an artistic production. "Scan Beneath" For the motion picture surprise of the week, the Ben All offers "Seas Beneath" which features the virile George O'Brien.. The Fox studios turned out a piece of work in this attraction that merits a better title. As a thrilling melodrama, It has not been surpassed for its action, a thing of which we see too little on the talking screen.
