Unless the University of
Tennessee takes satisfactory
action in fixing responsibility
in that institution for violation of Southern conference
rules this year, the school
may be suspended from conference ranks at the annual
assembly of conference officials to be held at Chapel Hill,
North Carolina, Saturday, December 11, it was indicated
Monday by a report of the executive committee of the conference.

the matter is not likely to be taken up at the annual meeting at
Chapel Hill since the executive

intimating that the offending Institution may be' suspended from
the conference unless such satisfactory action Is taken.
The investigation and ultimatum
of conference officials came as a
result of accusations against Tennessee early in the football season
this year, when it was charged that
the Volunteers violated loop rules by
holding practice earlier in the year
than the conference permits. It
was discovered that Coach Neyland

Margaret Lewis Achieves Distinction in Role of Marguerite Gautier
By THOMAS L. RILEY
They call it a "light-orgabut
that term is inadequate. No mundane designation should be applied
to the lighting effects introduced
on the stage of the Guignol theater
in "Camille" which opened a week's
run in the university playhouse last
night. The lighting is not only effective, it makes an otherwise dull
presentation glow with color and
warmth.
"Camille," a drama in five- - acts,
by Alexander Dumas, flls, tells of
a "ept" woman who realizes genuine love too late In life. Just when
her affairs are adjusted to make
her life happy, the father of her
lover Intervenes and induces her to
give him up. She makes the sacrifice and, her health being broken,
dies a few months later with her
lover In her arms.
Margaret Lewis achieves distinction with her starring role of Marguerite Gautier, "Camille." Perhaps
she is miscast but it must be said

command of the difficult part assigned her.
Nell Cain, as Armand, the lover,
is colorless. Although his place in
the play Is subordinated, more ardour should have been exhibited.
He is not the fervant Armand of
the play.
One of the most notable performances Is delivered by Horace Miner
as Camllle's wealthy benefactor. He
accomplishes a convincing quality
that makes his role stand out in
bold relief.
R. D. Mclntvre, as Georges Duval,
father of Armand, presents a char

like his other appearances, Is marked with finesse of character delinea

New Rule

Is

An Editorial
According to section three of tho new absence ruling adopted by tho
university October 13, "absences shall be counted beginning with the first
day of recitation, and late entrances shall be counted as absences." This
section makes the new ruling retroactive, in that It operates to mako
punishable acts done prior to the passage of the rule. School opened
September 17, with adoption of the rule taking place almost a month
later.
Many students entered the university via late registration this year.
They did this because circumstances were such that they could not enroll at the time other students did. They were penalized for their tardiness by being forced to pay a late registration fee. Now, and much more
seriously, they are penalized a second time for the same offense by being
marked absent from all classes while not in school. The same line of
reasoning, If correct, could be carried to absurd lengths. Kentucky could
pass a law declaring void all votes cast at the last November election
by voters not possessed of a college degree. But the law would be void I
For protection of students, university officials ought, we suggest, to abolish late registration. The monetary and absence rulings have one more
straw than the camel can carry.
It Is a travesty on Justice that excuses from class prior to October now
are void. It Is another travesty that persons are counted absent when
not students at the university. Retroactive rules do not promote good
scholarship.

The University of Kentucky de
bating team will meet a team of
German university students at 7:30
o'clock Thursday night in Memorial
hall. The subject of the debate will
be, "Is the Foreign Indictment of
American Culture Justified?"
The German team, composed of
Hans Juegen Graf Blumenthal and
Herbert Schaumann, will take the
negative side of the discussion, while
Richard Weaver and Sidney T.
Schell will defend the affirmative
for the university. President Frank
L. McVey will preside at the debate.
Graf (Count) Blumenthal Is now
23 years old, has studied at Potsdam, Mecklenburg, Munich, and
Konlgsburg, and Is a member of the
Deutche Studentenschaft.
Herr
Schaumann, age 29, is a brilliant
student of philosophy, Journalism
and literature, and was the winner
of the second prize when chosen for
the international debating team in
Washington. At present he is en
rolled In the University of Berlin.
Richard Weaver has had three
years experience in public speaking
at the university, and has taken
part in about 60 debates. He was
a member of the International Debate Team in 1928 which met the
team of British university women.
Mr. Schell has had two years experience, and has appeared In 125
debates during that time.
The German team will arrive in
Lexington about 5:30 o'clock Thurs
day afternoon, and will depart for
Cincinnati at 6:30 o'clock Friday
evening.
Two debating teams from the
university spoke in the auditorium
of Millersburg Mllitay Institute at
7:30 o'clock Monday night.
The
subject was "Resolved That National Chain Store Merchandising Is
Detrimental to the Community."
Robert Stewart and Hugh Jackson
will present the affirmative side,
while Raleigh Hall and William
Ardery will uphold the negative.
At 10 o clock Wednesday morning
four representatives from the university will debate at Barboursville,
and then proceed to Pinevllle for
another debate at 1:30 o'clock in
the afternoon. The same subject
will be discussed at each appearance. The affirmative will be repre
sented by J. L. Palmer and Hugh
R. Jackson, and Clyde Reeves and
M. Huden will take the negative.

INTERPRETING THE NEW
ABSENCE RULES
Following the shock of the actual passing of

the new absence rules tremors of protest shook
the student body. These tremors, like the first
throbs of a mighty earthquake, have been increasing in volume until the foundations of
student respect for authority and the rules
which make their Alma Mater are being twisted and distorted. An earthquake of criticism is
upon the university. So far the wrlthlngs of
outraged privileges have done no serious harm;
like the earthquake they toss a while then rest
to gather more force until that which displeases
them is destroyed.
Absence rules, tardy excuses, notes from
mama, what old familiar sights do they invoke?
Grammar school days, which once past we never expected to reencounter. At least twelve
years of consistent training to be dependable, in
part at last, are wasted when college is reached
and the student finds such rules in force as he
was subjected to in grammar school. There
would be some condonement if the rules were
old and traditional, sentimentally kept as reminders of the day in which they were made,
but they are new.
October the thirteenth was the unlucky day
for the student body. On this day ten new sections of rules were passed. These ten sections
constitute direct ruling on absences.
According to the consensus of student opinion,
these rules are of an unfair and discriminating
nature. The interpretation which has been
made of these rules seems to us the only logical
interpretation possible of such rules.
According to the new rules a student may be
allowed to make up work if he presents a reasonable excuse to his professor; also, if his absences happen to come on the day Immediately
preceding or Immediately following a holiday he
must either be penalized three credits or present
a reasonable excuse. What constitutes a reasonable excuse? Any excuse which can be given
must be saturated with the personal element,
for no longer are the excuses of parents or physician of any use to the student who misses a
class. It is just his hard luck. It stands to
reason that if these excuses cannot be present- -

'Xhe matter of what constitutes an excess
is also a matter resting entirely upon the Judgment of the professor. It cannot be questioned
tnat there will be a great variety in the standard set by instructors of what is an excess.
very instructor is bound to have a definite idea
of what seems to him to be excessive cuts. The
student is not protected.
It is litue wonder tnat the grumblings of discontent are shaking the student body; it is little
wonder that they have been merely tremors
gathering force for even the students cannot
understand the rules which they are being subjected to. There is on interpretation of the absence rules made by the students which has not
pointed out the many defective points of them,
xt is not that the students object to rules being
made for governing their conduct. It is the fact
that they resent that the rules which were made
to govern them are of such an ambiglous nature that they cannot understand them.

well, 'mere is notnmg quite so important to
the weliare of a state supported institution as
tne goodwill of the etuzetuuip of tnut common-wcau- n.
Unfortunately, the very nature of the
worn of the university mases such contributions
as the proposed cnarity game practically impossible save at extreme rare intervals. Accordingly,
tnerc are still those persons over tho stato who
at times have an unfriendly attitude toward
their state university, or who, if not actively antagonistic to the college, are always prone to
cast their flnaactal support to channels which
they term more worthy and needy.
Here, then, is an opportunity one which
should appear alike to the faculty, student body
and to the cltlsens of Lexington. Dean Welst
is to be praised for his foresight in sponsoring
this matter, which besides its worth as a means
of relief to the destitute of the community, is an
expression of the fact that the University of
Kentucky, with its entire personnel, is vitally
concerned with the economic and social problems of the commonwealth. It is to be hoped
that arrangements for the charity game will
be carried through successfully and that tho
student body will cooperate
with university officials in this highly commendable endeavor.
