Off Laurels Of
The Romany Players passed from
the grave to the gay and back again
in their presentation of 'The Mollusc"
by Herbert Henry Davies. This subtle English comedy is an amusing, yet
truthful, study of a type we have always with us. A merely lazy person
flows with the tide, explains Tom
Kemp in the play, but a mollusc uses
force to keep from doing if.
Eleanor Morse, as Dulcy Baxter,
carries off the laurels of the play.
She plays the. part of a spoiled young
woman who gains all of her wishes
and desires, not by force, but by

beauty bring to her the sympathy of
her husband, the governess, and her
audience. Fortunately for the entire household, brotherly love is not
so lenient, and Tom Kemp brings
about for her a rude awakening

part well, especially in his
transition from disgust to adoration
of his wife.
Marjorie Warden, as Miss Roberts,
is particularly appealing in her portrayal of the charming little governess caught in the drift of circumstances. She is the spirit of youth
incarnate, and she nexer fails to
touch the hearts of her audience
with her magic wand.
Troy Perkins, as the bluff and
hearty brother from Colorado, leaves
little to be desired. He gives a natural and unforced delineation from
beginning to end. However, he made
himself so famous as Mr. Pirn that
he will not soon find another role so
well Buited to him.
The English sitting room in pastel
shades of mauve and blue was designed by Miss Morse and built by
Mr. Harper and his assistants.

The Masonic Club of the university
held its reorganization meeting at
Dicker Hall Thursday night with a
small percentage of Inst year's members present. The president of the
club last year, Prof. J. B. Dicker,
presided nt the meeting and assisted
in the plans for reorganization.
W. Thompson was elected president
of the club for the ensuing year and
took the chair for the election of the
other officers of the club.
Bishop was chosen as secretary and
Ted McDowell as treasurer.
After the organization was perfected, plans were made to increase the
membership of the club. Every Master Mason in the university, either
of the faculty or student body, is eligible for membership and an effort
will be made to increase the membership.
On Tuesday night plans were discussed for the presentation of a petition to Square and Compass, national Masonic fraternity, which has
a wide membership throughout the
colleges of the United States.

Four students of the university and

the honor which, according to Allen
Barnett, secretary of the committee,
was more keenly contested than ever
before. Mr. Barnett stated that the
contestants this year were better edu
cated and were of higher intelligence
than those of former years.
The three qualifications on which
the award is made are: qualities of
manhood, force of character and lead

Cincinnati Lineup To
Start in Game
The Wildcats went back to hard
practice this week in preparation for
their game with the Hoosiers of Indiana tonight. With one victory already marked up, the 'cats are determined to keep their slate clean.
The Hoosier state is noted for its
good athletes and few others excel
them in the net game. Indiana won
the "Big Ten" conference championship last season and will bring the
same players to Lexington that composed the championship squad, determined to give the Wildcats tho short
end of the score.
The 'cat mentor has drilled his
men hard for the last three days and
it will be a tough job for the Hoosiers to penetrate the Wildcat defense.

There has been much stress laid on

itself in the Cincinnati game. The

COL I0HN SKAIN
DONATES $1 ,000
Student Loan Fund is
Beneficiary of Opportune Gift
Colonel John Skain, of Lexington,
has donated $1,000 to the student loan
fund of the University of Kentucky.
The money will be sent immediately
to Professor W. S. Webb, chairman
of the fund committee. This donation will be known as the Joseph M.
Skain Memorial Fund, in honor of
old nephew who
was killed last summer.
There is now a fund for students
amounting to $ 18,000, which has accumulated from private donations and
memorial funds, all of which is paid
out in an effort to give boys and girls
a better opportunity to secure an education. The fund is almost all out
in loans and donations to the fund
will be gladly received.
The student loan fund has been of
great benefit to those students who
are unable to pay their expenses
through college. So numerous have
been the demands upon the fund that
the present amount is too small to
take care of all the requests. Students who otherwise would be compelled to leave school will be greatly
benefitted by Mr. Skain's geaerous
