Endres' AT CONVOCATION African Canvases To Be Exhibited i TWO DORMITORIES PLANNED FOR HEN The time of the concert by the Ohio State Girls' Glee Club, to be presented in the Men's gymnasium Saturday evening, has been moved up to 7:30 o'clock instead of 8:15 o'clock, as previously announced, according to Margaret Gooch, president of the University Girls' Glee Club, sponsoring the Ohio organization's appearance. The change in time was necessitated by the Stroller dance to be given immediately following the concert. The Ohio State club, of 35 voices, is reported to have one of the best vocal assemblages of its kind in the country, arid while the exact nature of the program which it will present is not known, it is expected, to establish a standard of excellence for contemporary clubs to aim for. Tickets for the attraction may be procured from any local club member for 50 cents, half of each admission fee being used to defray the cost of the Ohio club's trip, and the remander is to be used to enable the local club to sing a reciprocal engagement in Columbus, Ohio, in May. Marie Flora, chosen as hostess to the Ohio girls during their stay here, has not completed arrangements for their entertainment as yet, however the girls' dormitories have been selected as their dating location while upon the campus, Miss Flora announces.

Both teams have about the sajne standing in Kentucky so far this season, as they have both defeated Centre. Saturday, Coach Major may send his star Rhoads, to the mound against the Richmond sluggers. This sophomore twirler pitched a shut out game against Centre last week and has been improving continually since the opening game with Ohio State on Stoll Field three weeks ago. His brother, the Rhoads, has been hovering around the bench for the last three or four days with a very purple ankle which received a hard blow by a ball from the bat of one of the players in practice last week, and he is not ex pected to play again for quite a while. He had been playing in right field for the 'Cats and his place will be taken, probably, by Franceway or Mauser, which will depend on the recovery of Dutch Layman, who is complaining of a very bad throwing arm. Dutch is accustomed to cavort around the lot in center field and if he is unable to play, his place will be taken by Mauser and Franceway will go to right field. The choice of pitchers will be de termined by the number of d ed batters on the Richmond team. If they are few in number, Wert will be used probably" in place of Rhoads. Lefty McGary is also coming into form gradually and he is expected to receive a call to the mound before many more games are played. Sid Goodwin, the ace of the catching staff, is due to receive the call for back stop honors Saturday. This former Colonelite from the Louisville team has a very noticeable way of inspir ing pitchers to their best efforts, as his performance against Centre Saturday clearly indicates. Centre got very few hits and no runs at all. It i revelation the, way Goodwin blocks the home plate and tags his man when the play is close. The infield reading from left to right, Cole, Gilb, Jeffries, and Crouch, will remain intact. Ropke again will play in left field.
