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 "Mollusc-ry.- " The latter is an art which many people have, but few carry to perfection. Hers is the feat Neverthelesss, her aptriumphant. pealing helplessness and her classic 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 and, lo! the mollusc is no more. Mr. Leonard SutclifTe appears in the role of Dick Baxter, a conventiond and al Englishman, retiring, He emotionless on the surface. part well, especially in his plays 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. Despite the fact that the holidays hAtrin Vridav at noon.

(CeaU&tttd oa Page Ifttht) Four students of the university and eleven other mn were candidates for 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 ership; literary and scholastic at tainments; physical vigor and inter' est in outdoor sports. It was the opinion of the committee after a careful consideration of each of the fifteen candidates that Mr. Baker possesses these qualities to a greater degree than any of the other can didates. The Rhodes scholarship carries with its tuition at Oxford University, Eng land, and an annual stipend of three hundred pounds a year for three years. Two scholarships are awarded every three years in each state. Mr. Baker will succeed Hugh Peal, a tor mer student of the university, who was awarded the scholarship three years ago. W. F. Hines, of Centre College, is the other Rhodes scholar at Oxford; having been given the award two years ago. DR.

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. The Blue and White men showed up well in the Cincinnati game in every department. The Kentucky men feinted the ball through the Ohioans' defense at numerous times for short shots at the basket. The Feline defense was almost imepetrable and the Bearcats made most of their shots from Coach Applegran has his hands full in getting the players in trim for their game with the Hoosiers. There has been much stress laid on the three man defense, which was an important factor in defeating Cincinnati. The value of intense training and prolonged drill sessions on the fundamentals of the game showed itself in the Cincinnati game. The Wildcats, although somewhat ragged in play, were at the right place at the right time and every play worked smoothly. Closely following the Indiana game, the Blue and White will engage the strong five from the University of Michigan Saturday night. This will give the players only one day for practice after their game with the Hoosiers tonight and night work will probably be the only preparation that the 'cat mentor can give his men. Both of these encounters are among (Continued on Page Eight) mid-floo- r. 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 Col. Skain's 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 donation, v.
