THE KENTUCKY KERNEL SCRIBBLERS CLUB IS AT II. K. Those Who Have Produced Outstanding Work are Eligible to Membership The Junior Scribblers, a recently orpnnlzed club of tbe campus for the stimulating of greater literary effort among those students who desire to be writers, Is an organization which has already been Instrumental in tho production of efficient work. Eligible for membership are those who have produced outstanding work and have shown exceptional ability to write. In many respects the club Is similar to tho Canterbury Club which was organized on the campus several years ago. The Junior Scribblers, however, do not limit membership to male students only, but permits membership of girls. The Club meets every two weeks when those who desire literary criti-cls- f and encouragement are given an opportunity to have their desire for literary association satisfied. The program last Friday evening was limited mainly to poetry, Professor Fitch read some of his poetry which has a true professional finish, Professor Knight's poetry was read and appreciated and Mr. Razor read some excellent characterizations and verse. The membership of the club inMcClure, cludes Misses Martha Amanda Forkner, Dorothea Murphy, Frances Marsh, Pansy Meyers, Carlisle Grant C. Chenault, and Professors Knight, Harvey Scott Kincks, Fling, Fitch and Messrs. Earl Smith, George Taylor, secretary of the Club, Mr. Razor, W. W. Anderson, William and Arthur Hodges Hick-erso- n STROLLER PLAY APRIL (Continued from page 1) 20-2- 1 "Oui, Oui, Madame" when introduced as the French model. When asked if she thought she could carry the part of Rosalie she translated this French phrase into a pure Irish brogue winning her the leading role. She has known her lines from the very beginning and being of pure Irish descent the part comes to her naturally. This part calls for a masterful character interpretation and professional, acting both of which demands she met immediately. Mamie Miller Woods who was charming as Helen O'Neil will be unable to appear in the play, because illness r examinations during the caused her to- be absent during an examination and the second examination was not taken soon enough after the part was assigned to her to give her the required standing to appear in a Stroller play. Tryouts were immediately opened for this part and the judges decided that Frances Smith, daughter of Mrs. Charles Judson Smith of this city was best suited to fill this vacancy. Her attractive personal graces, youthful appearance, perfect poise, gentle manner and soft voice makes her interpretation and rendering of the part very pleasing. Although she is only a freshman and this will bo her first appearance in connection with Stroller productions, she has had previous experience in dramatic productions, and the Club Is looking forward to her with interest in this and future mid-yea- theatricals. The part of Grace Standlsh that was assigned to Frances Smith last week turned over to Nan Chenault by a vote of tho cast Tuesday evening. This Is a minor part with only a few speaking lines for the character, but it requires ono who is perfectly at ease on tho stage as she appears in every act, and a good listener Is half of any actor's part. She appeared in the leading role In "All of a Sudden Peggy" a play given at Maysville High school last year. John Albright who has tho leading male role, has been directing the rehearsals during tho absence of John Burks who is in Chicago on tho Junior Engineer Inspection trip. will bo The initial performance waB given In Lexington April 20 and re peated April 21.
