Miss Rebecca Smith, as "Bessie
Brayton," the breezy Western product,
who "does stunts" at parties for the
crowd, could not be
surpassed. Miss Smith has been prominent in other Stroller plays.
Waverly Brlggs and Leonard Taylor as "the boys," are well fitted for
their parts. Waverly Brlggs as Billy
plays the languid society man to perfection, while Leonard Taylor in the
role of Tommy, the sport, is a husky
young athlete.

Major Dldsworth, in the hands of
Jim Farmer, becomes a real villain,
with a most fascinating "English accent." Willie Lee Smith is the typi- -

Wildcats Will Meet Ohio
Wesleyan For First
Game of Season

ANNOUNCE SCHEDULE
Even the pessimist, who had prophesied an unmerciful trouncing for
the Kentuckians at the hands of the
Michiganders and a bribed umpire, experienced a severe shock when that
unscrupulous official, Father Weather,

until the Northerners had departed
for the Sunny South, did the locals
s
recover sufficiently to brush the
from their eyes and realize that
no arrangements for a future game
had been made.
On account of this post mortem visit of winter, "Pety" Moore and his assistants have again been busily engaged preparing the diamond for the
opening game of the season. Likewise, Coach Tuttle has been adding
some finishing touches to the training of his Cats.
With the aditional three days' practice before the Initial fray with Ohio
Wesleyan he feels confident that the
scalps of the Ohioans will become
the possession of the Kentucky Wildcats on Thursday, April 13.
Blood once tasted, the Cats cannot
help but take a second victory from
the Ohio lads on Friday, April 14.
Coach Tuttle has announced the following line-ufor Thursday's game:
MoClellan will pitch, with Senator
Crum receiving; Captain Park will
hold down first base with Roark
and Schrader covering second and
third respectively. "Red" Spaulding
will guard the left field with Frazier
in center and Mcllvain in right.
With the exception of the pitcher
will probably remain the
the line-usame for Friday's game. For that contest the box will be filled by Server,
Cooper or Grubbs.
The official baseball schedule, as
announced by Doctor J. J. Tigert, follows:
April 13 and 14 Ohio Wesleyan at
Lexington.
at
April 18 Georgetown College
Lexington.
April 21 and 22 Ohio State at Lexington.
April 26 Western Reserve University at Lexinton.

It is expected that one hundred leading colleges and universities of the
country will be represented when the
association convenes at Columbia University April 18, 19 and 20. Mr. Gillis
will go early to be present at an important meeting of the executive committee.
The program as announced by President Walter P. Humphreys and Secretary Gillis calls for papers and addresses by Clyde Furst, secretary of
the Carnegie Foundation, and Professor Charles R. Mann, a research expert; Dean Schneider, of the University of Cincinnati, and Dr. Philander
P. Claxton, Federal Commissioner of
Education. The purpose of the association is to provide by means of an
annual conference and otherwise for
the spread of information on prob
lems of common interest, and to promote the professional welfare of its
members. The great Interest that is
being manifested in the work is indicated by the steady growth in membership from every portion of the
United States.

The annual meeting of the Ken-- J
tucky Educational Association will be
held at Louisville, with headquarters
at the Henry Watterson Hotel, April
inclusive, the general subject of
discussion to be "Economy and Efficiency in Public School Education."
The University of Kentucky faculty
members who will be prominent at
the meeting are Dr. Edward Tuthill,
President of the Department of History and Civics of the association, and
Prof. George Roberts, President of
the Agriculture and Horticulture Department. Both are on the executive
committee.

speak on "College Graduates as High
School Teachers" before the Department of Higher Education, of which
Dr. John J. Tigert is secretary.
In the Department of Language,

A May fete performance, probably
the most unique of the hundreds of
celebrations in honor of William
Shakespeare, ranking in standard with
the highest universities, and
other productions in originality
of conception and execution, will be
given Tuesday afternoon,
May 16,
1916, at 2:30 on the cmapus of the
University of Kentucky, under the
auspices of the English Club of the
University.
Not only does the English Club's
pageant expect to measure up to the
highest standard of selection of plays,
and acting, but to excel in producing
in combination the most delightful
scenes of four of Shakespeare's noted
ly charming comedies. From "As You
Like It," Rosalind, Celia, Orlando and
Touchstone will emerge from the forest of Arden to talk of love; "Winter's
Tale" will visualize the dainty, lost
Perdita, and the dashing Florizel; the
delightful calm of "The Tempest" will
be embodied in the bringing to life
of Prospero, Miranda, Ariel and Ferdinand;
and "Midsummer Night's
Dream" will produce not only the fiery
Queen Elizabeth, Theseus
and his
spouse, Hippolyta, but also the joyous comedy of Quince the carpenter,
Snug the joiner, Bottom the weaver,
Flute, the bellows-vendeSnout, the
tinker, and Harneling, the tailor.
These scenes are to be interwoven
with Shakespearean music and dances,
e
dance, fairies' dance and
a
a rendition of the famous Morris
Mrs. R. L.
dances to be featured.
Stout will train the dancers.
The executive committee in charge
of the "pageant," the name by which
the entire production will be known,
isXcomposed of Professor L. L. Dantz-le- r
Professor E. F. Farquhar, and
Misfi Frances Jewell, acting with this
committee, is the student group representing the three upper classes and
the graduate school, Mr. F. D. Mayes,
Miss Nancy Innes, Mr. John Marsh
and Miss Christine Hopkins.

reported

of Clarence

Egbert, superintendent of printing in
the University, who suffered a paralytic stroke at his home, 613 Central
Avenue, Monday night.
Mr. Egbert is considered the best
paper authority in the South and is
often called out of the State to give
his services as a paper expert. During the three years he has been connected with the University Press, Mr.
Egbert has been the means of saving
the University and Experiment Station several thousand dollars which
was being expended on publications
printed elsewhere.

The cast of "Father and the Boys,"
said to be the best ever selected by
the Strollers, under the splendid man
agement of "Bill" Shlnnlck, Is ready
for the initial performance of the play
to be given tonight at tie Opera
.House, after twe months of hard work.
The play itself, George Ade's masterpiece, is considered by many who
have seen it produced, the funniest
bit of comedy ever put on the stage.
The story of the waking up of "Father," who is eight years behind the
procession, until he leads a life too
gay for even the "boys" to follow, presents many possibilities. With a roulette game and a real horse race it
does not lack spice. The "girls" play
quite an important part too, with the
happy culmination of three romances
in the last act.
Emery Frazier,- as "Father", is very
clever in his part. He plays most naturally the character of the staid business man, who, for the sake of the
"boys", enters into the things they
enjoy, and has such a good time at it
that they have to beg him to settle
down once more. Mr. Frazier had a
part in last year's Stroller play,
"Charlie's Aunt."
