DEAN BOYD WRITES
"School and Society" Magazine
Publishes Article Discussing
Student Movement and Influence on College Education.
In an article published in the January issue of the Schooland Society
Magazine, Dean P. P. Boyd, of the
Arts and Science College, explained
the new movement that has sprung
up in the various universities, and
which is known at the University of
Kentucky as the "Pan Politikon,"
meaning "the Political whole," which
lias as its aim, peace.
"Pan Politikon" is an attempt to fit
the key of education more nicely to
the lock. It assists the students to
become acquainted with the ways and
customs of other people by bringing
speakers and entertainers from various parts of the world.
, The chief endeavor of this society
is to establish peace.
In the concluding paragraphs Dean
The world Is not yet ripe for unbroken peace nor for complete disIndeed, it will not bo,

March; Romany Staff Cooperates to Make Play Success.
The next play to be given
Romany Theater, Galsworthy's "Justice," is scheduled for production during the first week in March. The
senior class of the Engineering College unanimously chose this great
play by a great author when it was
found that Dean Paul Anderson desired the seniors to give a play for
the cultural and executive value to be
derived from such an undertaking.
The cast of the drama has practically been completed," and is composed of men from the senior class
with the exception of one woman, who
will be chosen by vote. The play is a
tremendous undertaking and requires
such a large cast, crew and staff that
very member of the senior class will
be pressed into service. Five large
sets of scenery are called for in the
production, "Justice" being the most
elaborate production at the Romany
The regular Romany staff, headed
by Professor Carl Sax, and assisted
by Elsworth Parrin, of the Carnegie
Institute of Technology, will supervise the production, but all of the
actual work will be done by engineers.
Professor Sax, who Is quite enthusiastic about the play, said:, "I believe that remarkable results will be
obtained, due to the 'esprit du corps'
for which the College of Engineering
is famous. Romany was glad to offer its cooperation and is therefore
presenting the Senior Engineering
class in one of the roost ambitious
dramas of its career."
