The investigation and ultimatum of conference officials came as a result of accusations against Tennessee early in the football season this year, when it was charged that the Volunteers violated loop rules by holding practice earlier in the year than the conference permits.

This suspension will not go Into effect until tho senior class of this year is graduated but will be valid beginning In September and lasting until the schools can convince the association of their conduct.

THURSDAY " Margaret Lewis Achieves Distinction in Role of Marguerite Gautier By THOMAS L. RILEY They call it a "light-orgabut that term is inadequate. No mundane designation should be applied to the lighting effects introduced on the stage of the Guignol theater in "Camille" which opened a week's run in the university playhouse last night. The lighting is not only effective, it makes an otherwise dull presentation glow with color and warmth. "Camille," a drama in five- - acts, by Alexander Dumas, flls, tells of a "ept" woman who realizes genuine love too late In life. Just when her affairs are adjusted to make her life happy, the father of her lover Intervenes and induces her to give him up. She makes the sacrifice and, her health being broken, dies a few months later with her lover In her arms. Margaret Lewis achieves distinction with her starring role of Marguerite Gautier, "Camille." Perhaps she is miscast but it must be said displays that Her Interpretation command of the difficult part assigned her. Nell Cain, as Armand, the lover, is colorless. Although his place in the play Is subordinated, more ardour should have been exhibited. He is not the fervant Armand of the play. One of the most notable performances Is delivered by Horace Miner as Camllle's wealthy benefactor. He accomplishes a convincing quality that makes his role stand out in bold relief. R. D. Mclntvre, as Georges Duval, father of Armand, presents a char acter altogether dliferent rrom ms other Guignol Impersonations. This, like his other appearances, Is marked with finesse of character delinea tion. Lolo Robinson as a servlng-malGay Loughrldge as a romantic young lady; Alice Jane Howes as a friend of Camllle's; and Ethel Anne Morgan In the role of a social parasite give splendid supporting New Rule Is An Editorial According to section three of tho new absence ruling adopted by tho university October 13, "absences shall be counted beginning with the first day of recitation, and late entrances shall be counted as absences." This section makes the new ruling retroactive, in that It operates to mako punishable acts done prior to the passage of the rule. School opened September 17, with adoption of the rule taking place almost a month later. Many students entered the university via late registration this year. They did this because circumstances were such that they could not enroll at the time other students did. They were penalized for their tardiness by being forced to pay a late registration fee. Now, and much more seriously, they are penalized a second time for the same offense by being marked absent from all classes while not in school. The same line of reasoning, If correct, could be carried to absurd lengths. Kentucky could pass a law declaring void all votes cast at the last November election by voters not possessed of a college degree. But the law would be void I For protection of students, university officials ought, we suggest, to abolish late registration. The monetary and absence rulings have one more straw than the camel can carry. It Is a travesty on Justice that excuses from class prior to October now are void. It Is another travesty that persons are counted absent when not students at the university. Retroactive rules do not promote good scholarship. The University of Kentucky de bating team will meet a team of German university students at 7:30 o'clock Thursday night in Memorial hall. The subject of the debate will be, "Is the Foreign Indictment of American Culture Justified?" The German team, composed of Hans Juegen Graf Blumenthal and Herbert Schaumann, will take the negative side of the discussion, while Richard Weaver and Sidney T. Schell will defend the affirmative for the university. President Frank L. McVey will preside at the debate. Graf (Count) Blumenthal Is now 23 years old, has studied at Potsdam, Mecklenburg, Munich, and Konlgsburg, and Is a member of the Deutche Studentenschaft. Herr Schaumann, age 29, is a brilliant student of philosophy, Journalism and literature, and was the winner of the second prize when chosen for the international debating team in Washington. At present he is en rolled In the University of Berlin. Richard Weaver has had three years experience in public speaking at the university, and has taken part in about 60 debates. He was a member of the International Debate Team in 1928 which met the team of British university women. Mr. Schell has had two years experience, and has appeared In 125 debates during that time. The German team will arrive in Lexington about 5:30 o'clock Thurs day afternoon, and will depart for Cincinnati at 6:30 o'clock Friday evening. Two debating teams from the university spoke in the auditorium of Millersburg Mllitay Institute at 7:30 o'clock Monday night. The subject was "Resolved That National Chain Store Merchandising Is Detrimental to the Community." Robert Stewart and Hugh Jackson will present the affirmative side, while Raleigh Hall and William Ardery will uphold the negative. At 10 o clock Wednesday morning four representatives from the university will debate at Barboursville, and then proceed to Pinevllle for another debate at 1:30 o'clock in the afternoon. The same subject will be discussed at each appearance. The affirmative will be repre sented by J. L. Palmer and Hugh R. Jackson, and Clyde Reeves and M. Huden will take the negative. The J. B. Haggin Memorial Prize Essay has been announced by Assistant Dean Horlacher of the College, of Agriculture. The subject of the essay this year Is, "What changes should be made by Kentucky farmers as a result of the recent drought and agricultural depression."
