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" has more of a sober vein running through it than "Seventeen," last year's production. The play has a cast of ten people, and the new Stroller material, combined with that already tested in the past years will furnish ample dramatic talent for a superior and select which bids cast for "Fifty-Fiftyfair to excel all previous Stroller productions. The play, will be the sixteenth production of the dramatic club, the first having been given in 1910 when the Strollers presented "Richlieu; "Brown of Harvard" was given in 1911: "The Virginian" in 1912; '"The Lost Paradise" in- 1913; "The College itt:j . ?r, 1014- "P.Visirlev's Aunt in 1915; "Father and the Boys'' in 1916; "The .Lion ana me iuuuoe m 1917; "Mice and Men" in 1918; "Un- der Cover" in l'Jiy; me Orichton ..

RULES OFTRAFFIC TO BE ENFORCED ON U. K. CAMPUS McVey Urges Coopera- tion of Students and the Faculty PUNISH VIOLATORS Measure is Relief For Congestion of Vehicles After consideration for many weeks the university council has taken action in an attempt to regulate traffic on the campus for the safety of students going from one building to another. The action was a result of the increased number of motor vehicles upon the campus and the consequent increase in danger to both faculty and students. Students who drive cars from neighboring towns and distant parts of the city will be given a permit to drive to school, provided they comply The license with the regulations. numbers and the names of the persons who drive the machines will be recorded and the driver will be held responsible for any violation of the traffic rules. A traffic officer will be placed upon the campus and will direct the students in finding a place to park their cars and in enforcing the observance of the speed limit of less than fifteen miles an hour. If an accident occurs and the speed limit is not exceeded, tho accident will not be excused on that ground. The ruling states that lights must bo on all cars driving on tho campus after dark and will not be allowed at any Students will not be allowed time. to ride on the running board of cars. If any of the rules are violated, tho automobile traffic committee has tho privilege of withdrawing parking permits on tho campus.

The university will assumo no responsibility for any damage done to cars or their contents while parked on the campus.

CONFERENCE NOW IN SESSION HERE UNIVERSITY BAND ADDS LUSTRE TO THE TRIUMPHANT FOOTBALL FINISH 150 Delegates From 14 Turkey Day Gans And "Famed Forty" Stage Celebration of Z7 to b Victory m Knoxville on Colleges in At- tendance IS STATE By Gene Moore ONCE MORE Kentucky's famed band invaded the valley of the Tennessee River. Again the narrow confines of Gay street resounded to the strains of "My Old Kentucky Home," as forty-odkhaki-clayouths blared forth the praises of eleven gridders who had swamped the Volunteers of Tennessee under an avalanche of markers on Shield Watkins Field in the annual Turkey Day scrap between Tennessee and the lads from the Dark and Bloody Hunting Grounds. MEETING soul-stirrin- g d Address the Convention and fifty delegates from fourteen colleges of the state will attend the annual state student conference of the Y. M. C.

It contains tho rules of tho contest and has been mailed to tho high schools in Ken- tucky. Definito plans have not been made as to district division, but will probably bo tho samo as that used last year. Committees, judges and chairmen will be named later. Professor Charles E. Skinner, of tho Lexington Senior High School, has been named chairman of this district. d blue-cla- d Well Known Speakers Never did Sousa and his musicians acquit themselves as did Ed Gans and his cohorts on that triumphant march from the field of battle to the Farragut Hotel, where Murphy's charges were dressing after staging s one of the greatest in Widcat history. Atlanta thrilled to the shrill piccolo of Ed Anglin and the booming of Bill Poyntz's bass drum last fall. Tech heard the strains of "My Old Kentucky Home" and saw Dell Ramsey and his 'Cats forge up on even terms and knot the contest 3 to 3. Knoxville two years ago, witnessed the spectacle of fifty youths, led by the strutting Ed, marching triumphant from the field even after the Volunteers had defeated Kentucky 14-But none of these can compare to the come-back- "Jimmy" McFarland Captain of the '25 Wildcats CLOSE FOOTBALL YEAR WITH VOL GAME WILDCATS st well-train- 7. Summary Shows Season Neither Failure Nor Success NEW SYSTEM SEEN Kentucky Scores Four Wins; Suffers Four Defeats 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 season. 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. (Continued on Pago Fivo The following telegram was Tuesday morning: "Charleston, W. Va. "Coach Fred J. Murphy, "University of Kentucky. "Alumni meeting hero tonight urges that you stir up enthusiasm there and have as many followers us possible come with team. We are expecting a crowd on special train to arrive here Friday. Send us songs, yells and advertisements. Have Lexington papers publish, and read in chapel. "Kentucky Alumni." marche-de-triomp- that Abe Kennedy, Gans 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 of followers. It was a concert in the truest sense of the word, the romantic strains of "La Paloma" intermingling with the martial notes of the "Star Spangled Banner," and "The March of the Mighty" with a delving into the mellow and "Let Me Call You Sweetheart" an hour's program which impressed those who listened so much that there should have been no ending. 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 defeat has threatened to cross the threshold of the 'Cat lair and the 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. Let's all get together and give three rousing cheers for The Band, then get behind it in everything that it does. We won't tack any million-dollepithet on it, for that would be lowering its standard. It's just a bunch of Kentuckians, with the music of the Blue Grass, of the mountains and the streams in their systems, out to show the country who they are and what they can do; led by one of the struttingest drum majors that ever lifted the baton, and and in charge of Sergeant Abe Kennedy, who needs no introduction. Tennessee's band deserves a word of commendation for its part in last Thursday's celebration. Defeated overwhelmingly, it followed Kentucky's band to the Farragut, paused and paid tribute to Kentucky by playing "My Old Kentucky Home," then turned defiantly into their own pep song, as if Volunteer instead of 'Cat was eating turkey that night. That kind of a spirit is mighty hard to beat. Kentucky merely had a little more of it. up-hi- ll ar INDIANA TAKES C. C. PRIZE AWARDED RUN; SETS RECORD U. K. AT CHICAGO Kentucky Finishes Fourth in Thanksgiving Chase The Wildcat harriers took fourth meet held place in the cross-countr- y under the auspices of the Y. M. H. A. of Louisville on Thanksgiving Day. Tho University of Indiana won first place, followed by Butler College, the University of Louisville, University of Kentucky, Y. M. C. A. and Y. M. H. A. Doolittle, of Butler College, and a member of the American Olympic team, finished first. He broke the record held by Ray Hall of the university, by 31 seconds. Wallace, of He was Indaiana, finished second. also a member of the Olympic team. The order in which tho Kentucky men finished was: Davidson, Dowden, Dean, Woodard and Boswell. These men ran against some of tho best long distance runners in the country and made a good showing under the circumstances. The team was not as successful us the team of last year, as only one man on the team has had any previous experience in work, while last year every man was a seasoned veteran beforo coming out. cross-countr- y ANNOUNCEMENT Wins Championship in Grade Wether Exhibition The University of Kentucky was awarded a championship for grade wethers exhibited at the International Live Stock Show at Chicago on Mon- day, according to a telegram received by Dean Thomas P.
