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 and the discipline of fraternities sororities and the Intelligent action student body. of the President McVey closed his address by saying that a spirit of Incuriosity should exist tellectual 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. Central Fortune, pastor of the Christian church. fa Flora Belle Lumpkins Frances Baskctt Tommie Lumpkins Elbert Bell Always Alice Bruncr Phil Redding Charles Goodman ; Bob Blovings Earl Cclla "Spike" Joe Allen "Tipsy" Tuggle Russell Stcigncr Edgar Garland, Jr Jack Smith Betty Tyler...

Dr. O. T. Koppius Addresses Meeting of Chemical Group Dr. O. T. Koppius, professor of 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.

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.
