With the cast and chorus rchcars-jn- g daily, finishing touches are being applied to the opera "Erniinic," which will be presented by the Music Department of the University at the Ada Meade theatre on Thursday and Friday, December 14 and IS. Every detail will be in readiness for the opening performance. Due to a misunderstanding in regard to royalty on the opera, it was announced a few days ago that the name would be changed to "The Two Vagabonds." This was considered inexpedient, however, and the original name will be employed. The mangiving agement also contemplated three evening performances, but de cided this week to stage the opera on only two nights. This will cause seats 'to sell at a premium, and little diffi- culty will be encountered in disposing of every available scat. lasting for After a series- of several days, the part of Ravcnnes, one about whom the of the principals plot is woven, has been warded to John Albright, who took one of the leading parts in the last Stroller presentation. This is the character played by De Wolf Hopper in the original cast, while the part of Cadeaux, made famous by Francis Wilson, will be portrayed by Jack Daihringer, who obtained operatic laurels in "Robin Hood" and "The Mikado." Miss Josephine Frazier, of Padu-cawill make her debut in University activities in the person of Erminie, for whom the opera is named. This part was formerly played by Lillian Russell.

K- APPRECIATION After a season that brought to the the season 1922 with a decisive victory by the score of 20-over the University of Tennessee Yearlings on Stoll Field last Saturday. The Kittens, with an. attack that swept aside all opposition, and a defense that stopped the enemy time after time, suffered only one defeat in seven contests. The Centre Freshmen, handed the Kittens defeat, but the Blue and White a Yearlings gained ample revenge and made history when they turned the tables on 'the Lieutenants, winning over the young Colonels to the tune of the first dmc that a Centre eleven has suffered defeat to a Kentucky team since 1916. At the start of the season about 70 aspirants reported to Coach Webb, and "Dick" was just about snowed under with the responsibilities result ing from such a large number of can didates. The Athlotic Council en gaged "Doc" Rodes as Yearling hack- field and assistant coach 'to help Webb and with the squad dwindling down to 40 candidates, the Frosh mentors were able to give more time to the first termers. After a couple of weeks of preparatory workouts, two elevens were selected, one, 'the heavy team, going to Frankfort and handing the High School elven of the Capital City a 33-trouncing, while the other, a light team, forced the Paris High eleven to take the short end of a 26-count.

The contract for the engraving signed with the Stafford Engraving Company, of Indianapolis, amounts to $2,000, which includes all engraving work. The contract for the printing and binding of the book, as signed with the Benson Printing Company, of Nashville, Tenn., amounts to $3,500, and incidental expenses of the annual including local printing, advertising, stationery, freight and office expenses will amount to not less than $600. The sum of these expenses amounts to $6,000 for the presentation of the annual. The estimated income for the management is, at the rate of $500 hooks for $4, $2,000; advertising income $500, leaving from the $6,000 $3,500 (Continued on page 5) (Continued on page 5) 14-- 6 19-- Dr. McVey. -- 0 p STATEMENT MADE BY STAFF K- PLANS LAUNCHED STOLL FIELDSTAD!UM FOR "U" Shaped Structure is Being Planned to Seat 15,000 People. Alumni and former students of the "K" Dance in Armory Is Given University are launching a campaign To Help Defray Heavy to build a stadium on Stoll Field with Expenses. Ken-wis- a seating capacity of 15,000. it has been estimated that a "U" shaped con- crete and stone structure with seats for 15,000 spectators can be built for approximately $100,000 to $125,000 which would be about $7.50 per seat. With a football team of the quality that Kentucky promises to have next year and a few big games on the home ground,, the structure could be paid for in one or two seasons and thereafter would make the athletic department and enable the University to take its rightful place with the leading colleges and universities of the south in the athletic line. It is pointed out that practically every State University in the South, as well as the other large schools, either have stadiums or are planning to build them. Vauderhilt has a new structure and likewise Tennessee. The University of Cincinnati is planning to build one and the general trend thru-ou- t the country is forever increasing crowds at college football games.

The contest was hard fought throughout and the result was in doubt until the final whistle soundShiclJ-Wat-ki- ed. Two hundred members of the University faculty and staff with their wives gathered Thursday night at Maxwelton, the home of the president to show their sincere appreciation of the new honor bestowed upon Dr. Frank L. McVey. In behalf of the faculty Dean Boyd presented an eighteenth century Persian silver incense box, in token of their appreciation. It is a beautifully engraved antique, bearing the following inscription: "To F. L. McVey, from the faculty of the University of Kentucky. In commemoration of his election to the presidency of the National Asso ciation of State Universities." Dean Boyd said in the presentation that his election was not considered the greatest honor that had come to the president or Would come, but they only wished to take this occasion to show the appreciation and love of the faculty. Dr. McVey expressed his apprecia tion of the with which he has met, adding that in tion with sympathy and kindness any institution could be made great. Even though the university lacks money, a powerful factor, it is strongly in pos session of these three qualities. 0 CAME OF GRID SEASON TO Quarter.

The editor ial sided with the Kcntuckian staff in a controversy between that staff and the personnel of the Military Department. A publication, such as the Kernel, approaching the problem with open mind and considering a question from all sides, should not score the Military department and its personnel, basing their facts on hearsay. The differences have been entirely between the students of the Battalion and the Kcntuckian, and the Kernel has taken a view which is open to serious issue when it drags the Military Department, as a department, into controversy between students. We feel it our duty under the circumstances to correct certain statements. It is our desire to state simply facts. If the persons responsible for the editorial which says, "There is now being circulated among the members of the University Battalion, a petition which, when signed by a certain number of cadets, will boycott the sale of the 1923 Kcntuckian," had read the petition which was published in the same issue of the Kernel, they would not have put in print such an inaccurate statement. We agree with the Kernel in its opinion of a boycott of t he Kcntuckian, which the Military Department supposedly was promoting. No such action was ever contemplated by the department or the Cadet officers of the Using a boycott in this Battalion. case would be very disloyal. We do not think the sales might be affected as we indicated, nor by any agreement by the various individuals who might feel that activities in which they take a large interest were not fairly presented in the Kentuckiau. We do not claim that we advertise the University more than any other department, but we help, and we feel that we should get the credit and consideration due us The Military department is just as much a student as the Athletic Department. It cannot be classed with the colleges. It is a feature department and should be so considered. The baud is in demand for all kinds of ceremonies, pep meetings, and athletic contests. The Batallion is the only student group in the University that can be reached by orders and turned out on occasions when the University should be represented. Interest in a Battalion is clearly shown by the students and townspeople in. the competitive drill and field day exercises, by their large attendance on such occasions. There is no admission charge at any of these performances. The Battalion has no source of income. It cannot LOSES LAST The individual star of the contest Bruce Fuller, playing his last contest for the Blue and White. His long broken field runs furnished the spectacular element for the spectators. Twice he struggled through practically the entire Volunteer team for large gains and was stopped with only the safety man between him and the coveted mark. The two elevens, witli weights about equal, battled through the entire game with never a large advantage on either side. The Cats showed a marked superiority in the line and the Bk-.- and White backs had little difficulty in plunging through the Volunteer forward wall for the first score of the game. On the other hand, the Volunteers were best at the aerial game and skirting the flanks. The first Tennessee score came this route and the second indirectly in the same manner. Cats Start March The Wildcat score came in the initial period, when after an exchange of punts with the honors about equal the Cat backs started a march from d their 29 yard line to Tennessee's mark, where Fuller carried the oval over. Fuller kicked goal. Both the Volunteer markers came in the second quarter. With the ball in midfield Campbell passed 40 yards to Lane who ran over for the score. After the kickoff by means of a series of fake plays coupled with a pass, Campbell to Clayton, which netted the Volunteers 20 yards, the Tennes-sean- s worked the oval to the Cat line. Campbell then crossed the line for the second touch-dowon a fake play. Clayton kicked goal after each touchdown. Campbell, Smith and Clayton were the luminaries for the Vols in the backfield. Holt and Lane, mammoth ends, were down after every kick and handled Campbell's passes in a wonderful manner.

Different phases of the Bible and of religiQus life are dscussed in round- table fashion. An effort is made to link the teachings of the Bible with modern times, and to show its sig nificance in the life of the student. Much interest has been manifested so far and it is expected that the class will prove of benefit to many girls throughout the year. mi mi", mmmtmm
