w TAGE THE KENTUCKY KERNEL EIGHT Poor Girls Are Given Party at Blue Ridge Meet At the Blue Ridge Conference Inst June the Kentucky and North Carolina delegates to the Boys' Conference, In accord with the usual hos pitality of these states, gave a party In honor of the P. W. G.'s (poor working girls). The Kentucky cottage was selected as the basis for the frivolity and fun. A similar party will be a feature of this year's conference. The cottage was gorgeously decorated In the colors of Kentucky, Be-rc- a, Duke, U. N. C, N. C. State, and a few others. Pennants from all the different schools were attractively placed on the walls of the cottage. The P. VV. G.'s, with their escorts were made to feel as much at home as possible amid the overhanging decorations and chapcroncs. Soon after the guests had arrived the fun of the evening began, headed up by Llston Pope of Duke, and Phil Aswerus of Kentucky. Weird singing was one of the features. Prnm nnn err f Inn nf fhp rilCCed 'mountain woods near the cottage came me encnanung woras 01 When they died down, their echo began to come forth, much to everyone's surprise. Mri Hill, of Alabama, and Mr. Wulfeck, treasurer of the conference, were the perpetrators of this weird act, answering each other's words from a distance, resembling an echo. Boys and Girls Work at Camp During Summer At Blue Ridge each summer a cerboys are employed to work in the dining hall, cottages. These girls offices, and and boys are a select group, representing the best to be found in the colleges of the South, and It is nothing unusual to find a girl or boy wearing a Phi Beta Kappa or Phi Kappa Phi key working in the din? ing hall or sweeping up the rooms. The Southern Y. M. C. A. college students have first choice of positions for work at Blue Ridge during the summer, and after as many of them as desire to accept work, then the remaining positions arc allotted among the other Southern colleges. Kentucky has had several men to attend the Blue Ridge Conference and work as P. W. B.'s. The P. W. G.'s (poor working girls), and P. W. B.'s (poor working boys), are organized and have their regular initiation each year to take in new members. Those who go to Blue Rrldge and who do not belong to the organization see that they are missing something worthwhile, even though circumstances prevent them from being members. There are many different tasks performed by the P. W. G.'s and P. W. B.'s at Blue Ridge. Besides working in the dining hall, kitchen, and cottages, some as lobby boys in the main building known as Robert E. Lee Hall, others as gatekeepers at the entrance to the grounds, others as at the lake, and some in the laundry. It is to be remembered that while all this is going on the P. W. G.'s and P. W. B.'s are going to school, which, of course, is their main reason tain number of girls and FRI. SAT. RUSTER COLLIER, JR. BETTY BRONSON In "One Stolen Night"; A Vitaphone Picture WED. SUN.

Fowler Will Direct Production; Large Cast Is Announced By Mclvlna Tumphrcy For the nfth production of the year the Guignol theater players will offer the dramatization of Robert Browning's poem, "The Flight of the Duchess." It will open on April 29 for a week's run. The play which was adapted from the famous poem by Ludovico Camoletti, has been translated from the Italian by Prof. W. F. Galloway of the English department especially for the use of the Guignal. It consists of a prologue and three acts and includes a large cast. The main stage set represents the great hall of Castle Lavenburg in Germany with minor alterations introduced during the action, which, together with the costumes, will give a picturesque atmosphere new to the Guignol offerings. Director Frank C. Fowler, who has already firmly established his repu- -' tation on the campus through his competent handling of the theater's previous productions, will undoubtedly add a new star to his crown with the presentation of this difficult drama. The cast for the play is announced as follows: The Archbishop. S. K. Workman, instructor in the English department; the roles of Conrad and Mateo will be given to Melvin Nollau, senior engineer, and Jack Ramey, arts and sciences sophomore, though it has not been decided which will have each part; Simenetta, Carolyn Speyer, of Lexington, known for her performance in The Cassilis Eneaeement: An gelica, Jeannette Kimberlin, arts and sciences, who gave such a notaoie characterization in uioconaa; jviai-tr- e Robert, John Noonon, a Sigma Nn and freshman engineer: Ru dolph, Verna Law, a freshman who has repeatedly appeared in campusp. theatricals with much credit; Jacy-pttAlice Snaldinc.

Call at Kernel Teacher Training Scries Ter minated With Educationnl Guidance Discussion Dr. Reeves, professor of education at the University and head of the bureau of school service, delivered his sixth and concluding special lecture on "Diacnosls, Immediate Instructions and Educational Guid ance," last nlcht at 6:30 o'clock in McVey hall. Dr. Reeves emphatically stressed that "Regardless of the care which the educational institution may take in its actions upon students, the fact still remains that students who obtain admission not because of proper preparatory work, not because they arc intelligent, not because of intellectual traits, or other reasons, have great difficulty in their college work. , "Some of the most important icas- ons of their failure arc: (A) Lack of intelligence; (B) character defects, including lack of determination and purpose; (C) temperamental defects; (D) outside demands Including those of social, natural and wholly for monetary reward; (E) poor studying habits; (F) poor high school preparation; (G) wrong ideas concerning college life. It has been demonstrated that poor reading habits constitutes many reasons why college students fall. Colleges and universities of the United States are working diligently upon the problem of salvaging the largest number of students from the disaster of scholastic failure."

The twenty-fourt- h annual meeting of the Southern Society of Philosophy and Psychology, originally scheduled to be held at the University of Missouri, was held at the University Friday and Saturday, March 29 and 30, in the lecture room of McVey hall. About 150 scientists from every part of the South were present. The program began Friday morning at 8:30 with an address of welcome by President Frahk L. McVey, which was followed by various discussions of psychological problems. The rest of the program on Friday consisted of a reception at Maxwell Place in the afternoon, and a banquet at 6:30 in the evening in the gold room of the Lafayette. Other addresses were given and a council meeting was held. The program on Saturday included as a special feature a trip through points of interest in the Blue Grass. The most talkcd-o- f speaker of the entire session was Dr. Max Meyer, who was recently ousted from the University of Missouri because of a controversy over a sex questionnaire. Dr. Meyer refused to discuss the situation and confined his talk to technical lines, but his standing among his colleagues was vindicated when he was elected president of the society at the business meeting Saturday morning. Other speakers on the program Included Dr. J. C. Barnes, Maryville College; Dr. Noel B. Cuff, Eastern Kentucky State Teachers College; Dean Hilda Threlkeld, Hamilton College; C. R. Griffith, University of Illinois; L. H. Lanier, Vanderbilt University; W. B. Smith, Tulane University; W. R. Wilson, Ohio State University; V. M. Sims.

Conspicuous among the assets of the play are the stellar performances of Ruth Bonnin and Andrew LIME and EUCLID Hoover as Kay and Eddie Ellison. Miss Bonnin, Alpha Gamma Delta, gives a vivid characterization of the vivacious and beautiful Kay.

Verna Law typifies perfectly the Irish landlady, and furnishes much of the humor of the play. Miss Law's appearance in Guignol productions have marked her as an outstanding actress, and as Bridget O'Rourke she gives another brilliant characterization. Alice Spaulding, Zeta Tau Alpha, (Incorporated) known for her charming interpre tations in Romany and Guignol QUALITY DEPARTMENT STORE THE plays, gives a finished performance as Jane Brown. The role ol Larry Scott is capably taken by Leonard Weakley, Delta Tau Delta.

Earl Cella, Kappa Sigma, looks and acts perfectly the role of Mike gunman, who Ross, the hard-boile- d Now , is at the root of the trouble in the comedy. Ann Caywood Talbott, Chi Omega, gives a delightful interpretation of Sorrow, Mrs. O'Rourke's maid. Miss ' Talbott handles the comedy of the play in an exceptional manner.

Waller Jones, Phi Delta Theta, impersonates in a vivid manner the flagrant detective, Harry Welch. James Dorman, Kappa Sigma, is effective as John Clancy, his aide. Carolyn Latta, Delta Delta Delta, gives a realistic portrayal of Mrs. Philip Carston, society leader and owner of the lost pearls.
