The olav. a tragedy, was original

later dramatized by its auinor, Alexander Dumas flls, and has since been
presented as an opera. The operatic version may be recognised under the name of "Traviata," having
been set to music by Verdi.
The play was originally published
some 88 years ago and has been
used by the best of America's Thespians for over a quarter of a century. Eva Le Oalllenne now is adding it to the repetolre of the Civic
Repetory Theatre in New York.

Conform to New Absence Rule

New Rule Promotes Contagion
An Editorial
One of the many isolated instances showing the undesirable effects of
the new attendance ruling at the university was that of the boy with a
deep cold who attended all his classes when he should have been abed.
He went to his classes with swollen and streaming eyes, sneezing at least
once each minute and coughing proportionately. He was a lad who felt
that he could not afford to be absent from class, yet could not obtain
an excuse. What was the result? Three days later, the majority of
students in the same classes were evidencing contagion. They had con
tracted cold germs from the boy who should have been abed, and who
would have been there had there been an adequate university rule for
the situation. It Is not fair that students in good health should be sub
jected to contagion from those who are ill and who cannot afford to miss
class because an excuse is not available. Poor health does not promote
good scholarship.

With this issue of The Kernel, the platform
f the student paper reappears after an absence
of several months from the editorial page. At
the time It was dropped from the columns of
this paper, it had become so well known and
so synonymous with the editorial policy of The
Kernel that the editors felt it no longer necessary to print it. At this time, however, it has
necessary to add to the policies contained
In the platform, so it reappears in this issue.
Observing students and members of the faculty will note that a new plank has been added
to the platform. That new plank, hewed from
the virgin timber of students' rights as indicated by The Kernel slogan on the press maintaining the rights of those who are attending
the university, concerns the repeal of the new
attendance rule established a short time ago by
zealous officials at Kentucky.
Since that rule was announced, scores of students representing every one of the four classes
and those taking graduate work have visited
the editorial offices of The Kernel, asking that
the paper assist in pointing out to officials the
manifest injustice of the new ruling. Many letters for the student point of view column now
are on file awaiting publication. The tide of
sentiment against the new rule is rising swiftly
over student obeisance to those who admittedly
hold the hammer. In other columns of today's
paper, that sentiment is being expressed because
The Kernel is a student paper and so long as it
does not feel the iron hand of suppression, it is
going to continue to be a student paper.
It is both wise and convenient at this time to

point out that there is no conflict between the
various planks of the platform, as might

observed, but the particular stress in The Kernel is directed against violation of the prohibition laws by members of the student body. It
may be said that better scholarship and repeal
of the attendance rule do not agree, but it is
