Trials were held Saturday afternoon and the men gave evidences of being in excellent condition, though none of them unduly extended themselves. The track team is handicapped in numbers and will probably have to forego entries in some of the big meets. The serious illness of Arthur Cameron has taken from the team its best pole vaulter and a man to fill his shoes must be developed immediately if Kentucky hopes to successfully compete in that event. Most of the records of the University are held by men who are now in school. Warren iClare, captain xof the squad, holds the Southern record for both 120 yard high hurdles and the 220 yard low hurdles, as well as the University record for tho 220 yard dash- - It is not overconfldence to expect Clare to beat all hurdlers again this year. Reports from the Volunteer camp are meagre but Vandy usually has a good track team and will make our boys hustle for the honors. Practically all the squad will make the trip to Nashville.

M. Barrie's "Admirable Crichton," presented by the Strollers at the Lexington Opera House, March 31 and April 1. Beginning with JVIilton Revill as Crichton and Mary Elizabeth Downing as Lady Mary, throughout the entire cast the characters were perfectly chosen. It is difficult to pick out the stellar performers so well was each and every part taken. Miss Downing acted Lady Mary with the grace, poise and perfect understanding of the part that one would look for only In an experienced actress. She was literally Lady Mary with all her ideas of life, rank and culture. Milton Revill as Crichton and Hern-doEvans stood out as exceptional actors. It ds difficult to imagine that these parts could have been better taken even by professionals. Milton Revill in a part which did not call for dramatic action but rather dignity and poise, was a perfect Crichton. Mr. Revill possesses in a marked degree that appearance of reserve power which is the secret of a perfect stage presence. He makes one feel that though he Is doing his part perfectly, he is capable of so much more if only the occasion called for it. To have directed a production which showed such careful consideration of every detail as did the Admiral Crichton would have been more than suf- - ' Continued on Page 2. j M'VEH AUTO COLLIDES!
