qD THE KENTUCKY KERNEL
WILDCATS PREP FOR MIAMI FIVE
'Local Color' Scores Hit;
Speaks Before Convocation
Wednesday i n
tivities at School.
President Frank L. McVey addressed the student body of the university Wednesday morning at 10
o'clock in Memorial Hall, for the
regular monthly convocation of the
school. Dr. A. W. Fortune opened
the program with prayer, while
music was furnished by the University Glee Club, under the direction vof Prof. Carl Lampert, head of
the music department.
In his address President McVey
made an appeal to students to cooperate in an attempt to keep the
campus clean and beautiful. Attention was called to the rule against
smoking in the buildings. Dr. McVey said that for some time it haft
been called to his attention that there
is a large amount of graft, special
privilege, and corruption in the various student organizations. The appropriating of student funds for the
private use of individuals holding
positions of trust and responsibility
should be stopped by members of
the student body.
Dr. McVey said that the university
has had a most successful football
season and that our football men
deserve a great deal of credit ioi
the rigid course of training that they
have kept. The players are sportsmen and gentlemen, which cannot
be said for the student body as a,
whole. Evidences of ungentlemanly
and unladylike conduct among Kentucky students were particularly
noticed on the Lexington, Va. football trip, 6aid President McVey. Deportment such as this gives the university a bad name and will eventually lead to the abolishing of intercollegiate football unless the clear
thinking and serious element of the
student body take it upon themselves
to remedy the conditions. These
conditions can be remedied through
the discipline of fraternities
sororities and the Intelligent action
President McVey closed his address by saying that a spirit of Incuriosity should exist
among the students at the university and that many of the students
hero are "fugitives from knowledge."
The men's glee club sang two
numbers after the address, and the
benediction was pronounced by Dr.
Fortune, pastor of the

physics at the University, delivered
an address on "Geophysical Methods
of Prospecting for Oil Deposits," at
the 138th regular meeting of the
Lexington section, American Chemical Society, Tuesday, December 10.
After the meeting, which was attended by about 75 persons, Dr.
Frank E. Tuttle, head of the depart- unent of chemistry, was elected
councilor of the Lexington section.
Dr. Koppius recently returned
from Texas, where he investigated
several problems of a geophysical
nature. He pointed out in his address that the haphazard prospecting and drilling for oil as carried
out in the beginning of the industry
is being replaced by more precise
methods, many of which are the direct result of geologists and physicists' interest In the work.

Strollers, University dramatic organization, opened their first musical
comedy production, "Local Color,"
Monday night at the Gttlgnol theatengagement.
er, for a thrcc-nlg"Local Color" was written and directed by Frank Davidson, president of Strollers, in colaboratlon
with Earl King Scnff and Kath-crln- c
Davis, who composed the
musical scores and lyrics.
Linking a hetrogeneous collection
of characters and numbers into a
flowing chain of drama, the plot
moved through the evening from the
home of the Lumpkins to the living
room of the Alpha Kappa fraternity
house and back in the third act to
the .Lumpkins home. Charmingly
interspersed with choruses by co-eand fraternity men, who enlivened
the acting with their dancing. The
comedy was quite a successful amateur production.
Mrs. Lumpkins, the indulgent
mother of Tommie and Flora Bell,
engagingly portrayed by Evelyn
Gall; "Tipsy" Tuggle, the proverbial
fraternity lover of 'wine, women, and
song" with the emphasis on the
wine, aptly played by Russell Stelg-e- r;
and Tommie Lumpkins, around
whom the play centered, and who
was possessed of a powerful ego,
cleverly enacted by Elbert Bell; were
played with great dramatic ability.
A particular note of praise must
be sounded for the musical numbers
and the dancing of the chorouses.
The scores of the various songs were
excellent in composition, melody,
and rhythm, and the lyrics were
lilting and light, as befitted those of
collegiate men and women.
The dancers seemed to possess a
certain natural grace, which emlnat-c- d
from the dances.
"Mother of Mine," sung by Tommie, Elbert Bell, to his mother,
touched the hearts of the audience
as mother songs will, when sung as
