f, rr j Best Copy Available THE KENTUCKY PAGE FOUR Austrian Professor Gives Lecture Here Noted Physicist of University of Vienna, Speaks to Physics Students Dr. Arthur Huns, professor of Physics at the University of Vienna, Austria, spoke three times before the Physics students of the university last week. His appearance at the university Is sponsored by the department of physics, and Sigma Pl Sigma, honorary pnysics rra ternity. Thursday, April 23 at 4 p. m., Dr. Haas lectured in the Physic lec turc room before the advanced stu dents on "The Relation Between Mechanics and the Theory of Rcl atlvlty." At 7:30 p. m., he spoke before the public on "The Sun and the Universe." Friday, April 24, at 4 p. m., he again spoke before the Sigma Gamma Epsilon, "Front Page" The best picture of the week, "Front Page," will close at the Kentucky tomorrow. Produced by Howard Hughes and directed by Lewis Milestone, this is a faithful adaptation of the newspaper play by Ben Hccht and Charles MacArthur, a smashing stage success. A flawless cast, headed by Adolphe Mcnjou, admirably catches the spirit of the piece. Pat O'Brien is cast as "Hlldy" Johnson, about whom the action revolves. Mary Brian, Mae Clarke, George Stone, Walter Catlett, and Matt Moore are also in the cast of "Front Page." The adaption of Bartlett Cormack is a miracle. The play teems with profanity. TJie Hays Code doesn't permit that on the screen yet the characters get the ideas through the loudspeakers wth no apparent difficulty. See "Front Page." "The Finger Points" Another newspaper film In on the rialto. "The Finger Points," current at the Strand, has Richard Barthelmess in the leading role with Fay Wray, Regis Toomey, and Clark Gable in support. "The Finger Points" is another cinematic explanation of the Jake Llngle murder. Gangster melodrama seems predomlnent on the screen these days and this First National picture contains all the usual hokum pertinent to that type of Ivama. Barthelmess is seen as a new reporter who, soon after joining the staff of a large city dally, falls In with a gang of racketeers by whom he is paid to keep news of their activities out of print. The dialogue is atrocious and the story is dreadfully slow but John Francis Dillon achieved some effective direction in spots. The last sequence in the picture is splendid sath-e- .

We repeat the charge nnd, in so doing,, heartily congratulate for the artistic Barnum technique displayed In. the production. The faking is there, plenty of it, but It is so cleverly done that it will deceive almost anybody, even Rena. "Trader Horn" should be seen. Its drawing powers are obvious. Thrills are there In abundance. However, the picture Is a bit too Hollywoodlsh at Harry times to be convincing. Carey does a good piece of work as the trader while Edwlna Booth wears few clothes and contrives to be a fierce priestess in no uncertain manner. Duncan Renaldo is cast as Peru, the trader's protege, who falls In love with the Booth. Our references to a scandal last week also has stirred up comment. It seems that Renaldo did too much rehearsing on his part out of camera range. The troupe actually spent over a year in Africa but the film did not turn out as it was wanted so, after buying some animal shots from independent ex plorers, they Aimed the remainder of the picture in Hollywood and get this land Clothes we assure you the very smartest styles, patterns that are unusual and appealing: to Mexico.

Professor Haas has visited the United States before, having lectured In the chief educational centers of this country, In 1927. He is one of the outstanding, interna tionally known physicists dealing with the newer developments In the science of physics. In 1928, the Glbbs Committee of Yale University appointed Dr. Haas with prominent American Engnsn and Dutch scientists, of the Commentary on the Wtorks of the Great American Physicist, J. William Glbbs. Ashland In these KERNEL, j By G. L. CRUTCHER There arc many activities on our huge campus, in fact so many that the members in some of them are seldom heard 'of, no matter how much credit they have brought to their various organizations. The bodies which I refer to arc the dramatic organizations, prin cipally the Guignol at the Art Center, which I believe is the most prominent. Does the average student ever stop to consider the time and energy which is spent in the production of a play? There are few If any. It is a tremendous responsibility to produce something which will please the various patrons of amateur theatre. The largest part of this responsibility falls on the director, of course, but to his cast and production staff we also should grant a certain share of the burden. Relatively few, are the inhabi tants of our community who can appreciate the work which Is concentrated in a play. In order to acquaint students and patrons with the work, which for the most part goes unheralded, we will endeavor to explain something about this credit; this really does not natter for they are not looking for credit; they are interested In the work and grow to love it the longer they do it. The work is hard ana tedious, but they enjoy it, it is their life on the campus and perhaps may become more so, later. The cast also has a long hare! struggle to attain perfection. They begin rehearsals usually the week following the close of a play and these continue until the opening night. First they must try out to find the ones most suited for parts. After-th- e cast has been selected it becomes necessary for them to appear on the stage at least six nights a week and sometimes the entire seven. They must give up practically all evening activities in order to devote their time to the play. Besides their evenings they have many lines to be memorised which also take much time. Last but not least, by all means shall we praise the director who has willingly devoted his entire time to the direction of the play. He has had numerous corrections to make, many defects of speech to smooth out and constant worry as to the results of his work. After so many nights of constant rehearsing the work becomes monotonous and fatiguing and perhaps the Interest wanes, but soon the opening night looms, interest and, excitement prevails, satisfaction reigns as the curtain closes on the first night, when sighs of relief are heard on all sides. In acclaiming the outstanding activities on the campus let's not forget that although dramatics Is not constantly in the lime-ligh- t, It has hidden behind the scenes many people that we wonder about; they are working, to attain an end. They have attained a great deal; they have brought a few hours of enjoyment Into our lives, and a feeling The Guignol Theatre produces regular plays, besides others for the entertainment of the community, during the season. Immediately after the close of one play rehearsals are begun on the next. The stage crew tears down a beau tiful set In six hours which has taken them six weeks to construct, working whenever' they are not In school and sometimes when they should be, laying aside their opportunity for social life in order to get the "set" ready so that the "show may go on." Many fretful hours are spent In planning scen ery, getlng proper color for paintings sets and arranging lights so that they will bring out the richness of the varied colors.
