The breezes of balmy April striking

the University track aspirants to supreme efforts in their preparation for
the meet to be held with the delegation from Vanderbilt April 21 on Stoll
Field. In order that no line may get

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
year, when a

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

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
and Dean C. R. iMelcher.
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

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
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.
