Dut the old place nln't what it used to be. Most of us old folks didn't know the campus. Wo walked out South Lime and turned in where we always did years ago, but we found ourselves in strange country. None of the old landmarks! Where, oh where, are the ash cans and ''we st6p for blandes, brunettes, and railroads" of the old days? When we wuz in college (stop me if you've heard this one) cars were everywhere, even in the buildings of higher learning. T'is reported that at one time that best friend a collegian ever had, the Ford, was parked in White Hall as the owner was suffering from spring fever and wouldn't walk if he never got to class. Yes, sir! That-- was the spirit in them days. Then there's the drives. Where, Oh where, are the drives of yore? No less than ten thousand and one nights ago the drives on the campus got you some place, but not these modern ones. They're only one way tickets and Just try to go the other way. Me and Akkie did. We have only a broken wind shield, a batter-ed-u- p fender, and a rim to show for it. Oh, yes. The buildingsl Why, there's only a few buildings us old folks like Akkie and Dean Boyd and me recognize. They have McVey Hall which among other things houses the new generation of Journalists. I don't imagine it does as well as in the days of yore when the Science Building was the "home, sweet home" for struggling young journalists, and when Dr. Funk-hous- er could let loose his snakes so Uncle Enoch could get a thrill fiom the deah old reptiles. And then they have a new place called "The Commons." Me and Akkie ain't ever figured that out. We asked some one hundred important undergraduates about it, gave them the blind fold test 'nd everything, only to find that some believed it was" demitase, while the majority thought that four out of every five use it. There's the book store, too. Me and Akkie looked everywhere for the book store even under the seats in the gym but no book store! It's as Akkie sez, "There ain't no sense in them moving the book store out of the cellar. Why, what's a book store without a good flood at least every two weeks? Gosh, I'd hate to be an undergraduate now. No excuse at all. We could always smile and tell the dear profs, 'Well, the books were simply ruined when the book store got all wet in the last flood.' " Really, moderns have no excuse at all, like us of .the stone age had. If we didn't go to chapel Akkie and me always gave as our "all baba," "Well, we couldn't afford to get a permanent wave in' our spine sitting on those hard seats without backs." And "now you chlllens have the loveliest chapel and the seats are just made for sleep. And the men's dorms! My crlckcty, when I was In college the men got along very nicely with one see why they go builddorm. ing dorm after dorm for mere men. I hears, too, they're putting up n new library." Can't decipher that cither," sez I. "Why, when we wuz In the University, Akkie, the library only had ten books and they wuz Just for the grinds. If we know the color of them the profs gave us "A" on our outside reading. Besides, you all don't know what mud is. I'll bet some of you never even saw any 'cept in college algebra classes In relation to clearness. "When we wuz flappers," Akkie sez to me, "one of the Joys of college life was the mud we acquired, in place of credits, going to classes. I'll tell you, they ain't in it with us, Ikkic." "Sez you," sez I. "Sez I," answered Akkie. Then there was The Game! When stage we had we were at the co-e- d It all fixed up with the weatherman so's It wouldn't snow on Turkey Day.

Latin, Greek Frat Will Give Medals To Honor Students Eta Sigma Phi, honorary Latin and Greek fraternity, held Its regular monthly meeting Monday afternoon, at 3 o'clock in the Administration building. At the meeting each mqmber promised to give a medal, sponsored by the national organization, to a senior in his or her own high school who is an "A" student and had done outstanding work in Latin during the year. Plans were also made for a meeting of the Classical club, which will be held Wednesday afternoon at 3 o'clock in the Administration building. The officers of Eta Sigma Phi are: President, Rebecca Long; Margaret Allen; secretary, Ellse Derickson, and treasurer, Martha Hall. Margaret Allen is national of Eta Sigma Phi. Meetings will be held regularly on the first Monday of each month. CO-EBAND FLAY band, under The University co-ethe direction of Prof. Elmer G.

University students arc urged to try for the parts in the next play, as the cast of eight or nine men and four women will bo selected from those who are present at the regular tryouts. Undergraduate men are especially needed in all of the productions. dios. TLR Of course you saw and enjoyed "In Old Arizona." Now you can see "Romance of the Rio Grande," a Fox Movietone picture with Warner Baxter, the "Cisco Kid" of the first talkie to be filmed out of doors. This picture is taken from the novel, "Conquistador" and Is said to be very entertaining and thrilling. The supporting cast includes Mary Duncan, Antonio Moreno and Mara Marls, touted by Fox as a screen "find." I think that you will enjoy "Romance of the Rio Grande" but "In Old do not expect another Agrlzona." TLR The west coast reports that Joan Crawford, during the filming of her next picture a ago, fell and sprained both ankles. Production is being held up until she recovers. TLR "Three Live Ghosts," a United Artists picture will be on exhibition Sunday at the State theater and it Is reported to be highly amusing. At present I cannot recall just who is in the production or anything about the story. However, "Three Live Ghosts" has received favorable notices In many cities and if you like mystery-comed- y you will SBN AID SUNDAY Warner Baxter Mary Duncan Antonio Moreno Y. W.

TLR This business of holding Saturday night premieres on pictures opening Sunday is, I think, quite cosmopolitan and I hope the practice continues. It makes you feci somewhat ritzy to attend thcrri. TLR "Four out of Five" is the title of next week's presentation of the Al-nAlba Players at the Lexington opera house and the play Is said to be a rich comedy well worthy of The plot revolves your attention. around the family life of a typical American household and should prove to be interesting on that account. Although the title may suggest tooth paste or some disinfectant I assure you that the play Is quite sanitary. TLR has gradually built quite a star out of Joan Crawford and her latest vehicle, "Untamed," will open at the Strand theater Sunday. This seems to be a story of a girl brought up in the tropics and her clash with civilization when she visits the haunts of the white man. I think that Miss Crawford Is a happy selection for this part and I am quite positive that you will like the first all talking picture of this very popular star. TLR "Chuch" Webster of the Alney Alba Players grew tired of Carnegie Tech and shipped out to sea on board a freighter. He says that he wasn't much better as a sailor than he was as a student so he gave up and tried the stage. In my opinion, he has certainly found a berth there. TLR One of the outstanding musical j comedy lights to be recruited for the motion pictures is Irene Bordinl ,and her first big effort will be housed in the Kentucky theater be- ginning Saturday.
