THE KENTUCKY KERNEL Formerly THE IDEA University of Kentucky VOL. VIII. LEXINGTON, KENTUCK Y, APRIL 6 1916, FATHER AND THE BOYS' ON THURSDAY, APRIL CATS ARE READY 13 GERMANS DEFEATED FOR MICHIGAN GAME Observer of Love Scene In Coach Tuttle Believes Their Production Becomes Chances For Taking Raving Maniac Opener Is Excellent ALL IN READINESS TENTATIVE After much delay due to the refusal of tho Opera House management to lease their house until after tho Ben All was ready for use ,the date for "Father and the Boys" has finally been arranged for Thursday, April 13, one week from today, at the Lexington Opera Hduse. The cast Is said by old students to be the best that the Strollers have ever selected and with such ' an excellent play as George Ade's masterpiece It is being predicted that this year's will be the greatest Stroller . play of them all. Plans are being made to make this the one "big college night" with the sky as the limit for enthusiasm, yells, and good times at the Opera House. Bill" Shinnick and the cast have some surprises in store that will make the students open their eyes and no one should miss this good time. Reserve your seats early when they go on sale Tuesday morning, April 11. "Father and the Boys" is said by all who have been fortunate enough to witness the rehearsals to be the best play the organization has ever put on, and the consensus of opinion is that it will be nothing less than criminal negligence for an person to miss this show. The cast has been rehearsed, "bawled out" copiously and praised judiciously by the stage manager, "Bill" Shinnick, since early in February until now they move through their lines with the sinuous grace that is characteristic of the Strollers, but with added vim and enthusiasm that is possessed only by this cast. A prominent student,1' well known in Y. M. C. A. circles and other college activities, who was allowed to witness a rehearsal last week, grew wild and had to be held down by two stage hands during one of the love scenes in the latter part of the play. As soon as he had been released he begged to be informed when the seats would be on sale, and threatened to shoot the business manager if the information was not slipped to him before the pasteboards were put on the market. After the stage manager and several able-bodie- d (Continued on Page 3) j LINE-U- No. 27 G.I.K.

While a student here "Chief" was very popular and much of his time during his short visit was 'spent in renewing old acquaintances. He was always an ardent Y. M. C.

It is to announce that Girls' Issue of the Kernel. On April 13, the women of the University will issue the Kentucky Ker nel without any assistance, or even suggestions from the male contingent. From "kiver to kiver" the paper will be the work of the girls, who will strain every nerve to prove that they could do it better all the time if they had the chance. Reporting, assignments, make up, it will be the work of the fair sex, while as for the editorials, just wait for that issue. Whether or not a paragraph column will be prepared in accordance with the policy of last year's issue, will de pend entirely upon the behavior of the men of the University during the next ! two weeks. A hint to the wise The staff for the Girls' Issue will be as follows: Anita D.

Coach "Bill" Tuttle, who has been priming the Cats, believes that his men will be In fairly good shape by Saturday; afternoon, and although "Bill" is a modest man, confidentially, he is intending to take the opener from the Northerners. Only a tentative line-ucan be given at this time but it will be somewhat like the following: McClellan, a southpaw, who won his spurs last season will more than likely start the game with Senator Crum doing the receiving work. Captain Park will station himself on the initial sack and either Scott or Roark will hold down the 'keystone position. Waters will be the short stopper and "Dutch" Schrad- er will attempt to handle the fast ones which are polled down the third-basline. "Red" Spaulding will see that the left garden is properly guarded and the other two outfielders will be chosen from Rodes, Mizrach, and Kelley. This game will mark the opening of baseball this year in Lexington and the hungry fans are licking their Hps in anticipation of the first game of the great national pastime in the city this year. 29 APRIL USED FREELY DAILY WORK-OUT- S The soft April sun shone down on Physical Director Stack, who is" in the rolling bluegrass fields of Ken- charge of the track squad said yestertucky.
