Sixteenth Annual Production Since the
a three act farce of
Love, Luck, and Laughter, by Frederick G. Johnson, has been chosen by
the Strollers for their spring production. Although it is a comedy,
with bits of brilliant wit, "Fifty-F- f ty"

After consideration for many weeks

the increased number of motor vehicles upon the campus and the consequent increase in danger to both
faculty and students.

ONCE MORE Kentucky's famed band invaded the valley of the

Summary Shows Season
Neither Failure Nor
NEW SYSTEM SEEN
Kentucky Scores Four
Wins; Suffers Four
Last Thursday marked the close of
another football season for the Wildcats.
To say the 1924 season was successful would be untrue and to say
that it was a failure would not do
the Blue and White justice. The veterans of Coach Murphy played some
good and some bad games and the
good games took us most of their
time, namely the Centre, V. M. I.,
Washington & Lee and Tennessee
contests. Of this quartet, the Wildcats were victors once. They held
Centre to a 7 to 0 score, were beaten
by V. M. I., 10 to 3, were defeated
by the W. & L. Generals 10 to 7
in a thrilling game, and defeated
Tennessee 27 to 6. Sewanee fell before the onslaught of the 'Cats, 7 to
0, as did Georgetown and tho University of Louisville early in the
New Coaching System
Kentucky fans saw a new coach at
the head of varsity football when
the 1924 season opened Fred J.
Murphy, former star backfield man
of Yale and hope that Kentucky
would have an aggregation was entertained by Wildcat supporters.
However, an old coach had gone the
year before with his system and a
new coach had appeared with a different system a system thnt was
far different from the one which had
been in effect tho year before and a
system which requires more than a
year to master.

and the "famed forty" staged in celebration of the 27-- 6 victory that Kentucky obtained at the expense of Roe
Campbell and Co. on Turkey Day.
Then, a couple of hours later, while
the 'Cats were dining at the expense
of a score of exuberant "Hoots" in
the Farragut dining room, Abe gathered his boys together on the mezzanine and pulled the athletes through
their second conquest of the day, this
time over King Turkey and his army

truest sense of the word, the romantic
strains of "La Paloma" intermingling
with the martial notes of the "Star

those who listened so much that there

The University of Kentucky has,
without doubt, a band far above the
average collegiate group. It has won
a name for itself repeatedly where-eve- r
it has gone. As an advertising
factor alone it has been the university's greatest drawing card.
Thousands have cheered it as it
paraded into Stoll Stadium to help
the 'Cats in an
fight. Countless others have heard it play "My
Old Kentucky Home" as no other
band can play it, and will remember
Kentucky by her band alone. When

Blue and White spirits were sadly
depressed, fans were leaving the stadium, dejected and forlorn, this same
band, led by Abe, Ed, and Marcia,
has stepped forth as if victory instead of defeat had been the lot of
the Felines. Many Kentucky hearts
were brightened at the example set
by the band, and forgot the score, and
thought only of the fighting spirit
of the 'Cats.

and paid tribute to Kentucky by playing "My Old Kentucky Home," then

beat. Kentucky merely had a little
more of it.
