HAVE SIGNED The latest military development at the University is the formation of a volunteer infantry company by the students of the College of Law, who under the present military system are not required to drill. About forty men have signed a petition for voluntary enlistment in the company and it is thought others will join them, completing the organization within a few days. The lawyers will drill three times each week, from 2:15 to 3:15 o'clock in the afternoon. Students of the Law College have not been required to drill until this r r year, when a rule for lawyers .was started. Many, how ever, have had drill in other schools, in the National Guard and in the Uni versity battalion, while enrolled in other departments, and a census has been taken of the entire college to determine the amount of drill each student has had. Officers for the company will be chosen at once from students of the college, subject to the approval of Captain John C. Fairfax, commandant at the University. Guns, when needed, will be furnished by the Univer sity. Those who have enrolled in the company are: N. H. Aaron, R. S. Bo wen, B. B. Black, E. T. Bowls, J. V. Chamberlain, J. F. iCorn, J. P.

PICKWICK CLUB HAS HUMOROUS PROGRAM ARE HELD IN CHAPEL CLEVER PRODUCTION University Men From Bor- Scores Hit Despite Absence of Male Characters in der Honored Friday the Cast Morning TALKS ARE FEATURES MISS McGOWAN STARS A patriotic rally to show the appreciation of the student body for the University students who went with the Kentucky troops to the border was held in chapel last Friday morning. Talks were made by Lieutenant Bush, Dr. Glanvllle Terrell, J. D. V. Chamberlain, R. S. Clayton, L. J. Heyman President and Dean C. R. iMelcher. Barker presided. the honor Dr. Terrell discussed which it meant to a young Athenian to foe allowed to carry arms. To be given arms meant that a boy was a patriotic citizen, because he could use the arms just as well against his country as in its defense. So the men from the University are patriotic citizens. The speaker said that the Greeks believed the bearing of arms a part of their education. This should be the case today. Human nature has not changed a great deal thru the ages and after the end of the great war we cannot assume that universal peace is at hand. It is the duty of every good citizen to be able, willing and ready to serve his country in time of need. J. D. V. Chamberlain spoke of the sacrifice of the men from the University who answered the call to defend their country. "When the President Issued the call for men," Mr. Chamberlain said, "they answered from all These men anover the country. swered in the fair name of Kentucky, without any thot of their personal safety. Their only thot was to save the nation. The same spirit prompt ed the Americans at Bunker Hill and They Pickett's men at Gettysburg. are made of the same stuff." (By Eliza Piggott.) The Philosophlan Literary Society gave Saturday night in the gymnasium, its annoal play, "A Southern Cinderella," considered by many the best the organization has presented. The play Itself was well chosen and admirably adapted1 to amateur production. The story is that of a young girl robbed of her rightful inheritance, first by a haughty unforgiving grand mother, who was estranged ifrom her daughter by a forbidden marriage; then by two English adventuresses, who try to destroy the will and take everything for themselves. The fairy godmother comes in the form of a settlement worker with an old black mammy for assistant. Between them they restore the little Cinderella's fortune, and all ends happily. Miss Bertha Miller was splendid in the part of Mammy Judy Johnson, a black Blue Grass widow. Her lines were clever and she kept the audience in a gale of laughter at every appearance. Miss Louise Will played well the part of Madame Charteris, the old aristocrat. Her voice was good, and she Interpreted the character skillfully. It was a matter of general regret that her lines were so few. ' Enid Bellamy, the Southern Cinder- ella, was played by Miss Elizabeth McGowan, who was sweet and appealing and won the sympathy of the audience from the first. Miss Zula Ferguson and Miss Edith Sachs took the parts of the English They were most adventuresses.
