This is the first time Mr. Whitney
has had any experience working
with young people but both seem to
be petting along very well. Dr. Kenneth Wright, chairman of the workshop and a member of the UK Music
faculty, said," Mr. Whitney is a
warm, enthusiastic conductor and
the orchestra is enjoying working
with him".
The students attending the workshop are "having the time of our
lives, even if we do have to work,"
said one participant.
Mr. Whitney said the music to be
presented tonight is comparatively
difficult. However, he expects the
orchestra to do very nicely and make .
a good showing. He has just returned from Europe where he was
guest conductor for six weeks with
one of the foremost orchestras on
the continent.

President Truman has signed into
law a new GI Bill for veterans who
served in the armed forces any place
in the world since the start of the
Korean conflict on June 27. 1950.
The new law provides five benefits,
including education and training.
The education and training provisions allow a veteran one and a
half days of training for each day
in the service after the outbreak of
the Korean fighting, regardless of
where the service was performed up
to a maximum of 36 months.
However, veterans who have pre- viously trained under earlier vet- erans training laws (the World
War II GI Bill or Public Laws 16
or 894 for the disabled), may get up
to 48 months, minus whatever time
they have already spent in training
under those earlier programs.

Students, faculty, and townspeople have an opportunity from now until Aug. 10 to see one of the
finest displays of reproductive art in the country.
The University's Fine Arts gallary is currently
showing the 23th Annual Exhibition of Design in
Chicago Printing.
Over 40 pieces display some of the year's best
advertising formats and lxtok make-upIncluded
with the Chicago work are some of the Department's own reproductions of paintings, both by
masters of the past and by contemporary artists.
The latter group was hung with the typographical
display to afford observers another example of the
complex and varied art of reproduction.
Exhibitions of this caliber explain why UK's Gal- lery ranks second in the state only to the Speed
Museum in Ixnn'sville. The latter is heavily endowed with private funds, an advantage not enjoyed by the local gallery. Dispite a lack of money,
however, UK's gallery consistently provides varied,
interesting, and satisfying exhibitions'.

never was one to mule-anrite in the paper. But I tell you, I was fit to Ix? tied
when I read what Mr. Disgusted Student said
alxnit small towns called them "villa", .mispelled
I guess.
Come right out in the opeij and said us small
town folks was stupid and illiterate. Why, don't he
know that that reflects on his rasin?
Now alxnit this companionship that don't breed

I don't care if you want to size up the world, but

And as fur that atomic bum I wouldn't think no

Amio Kiviniemi is cast as the amorous, drink-lovin- g
marquis, and Sue Henry is cast as his wife. Jo
Anne Thomas plays the part of a chaml)ermaid who

gets invited to the big ball entirely by mistake. In
one notable scene she gives our friend the marquis
the old come on, singing daintily, "Look Me Over
Once, Look Me Over Twice." Of course what
really puts the song over is the innuendo put across
when Jo Anne does a subtle bit of skirt lifting as
the song's dramatic accompaniment.
We understand Wallace Briggs had quite a time
in rehearsal getting Miss Thomas to put the proper
amount of "suggest iveness" in her gestures. It seems
Wally was encouraging Jo Anne to nudge the
bleary- - eyed marquis in a flirtatious manner and
was using Miss Icwis to demonstrate. Miss Lewis,
blessed with as much romantic sensibility as the
best of us, didn't object the first few times, but she
finally bruised to the Ixiiling point and gave Wally
a nudge of her own that could hardly be described
as flirtations.
Rehearsals went on through and next week-enthe paying customers will get a chance to see how
well Jo Anne took to her coaching.

Students who daily fltxtd themselves with chlorophyll tablets to kee p themselves prese ntable to society are wasting their time, according to a doctor

The good chxtor said that his horse, after cropping
on nice, green grass (just packed with clorophyll)
would come home from the fields, after a hot clay,
"rec king with sweat."

Your advice, to quit casting stones unless we ourselves are morally pure, is absolutely, positively,

and categorically insane. The only glint of the
actions you advocate comes from the reader's individual interpretation. I rather suspected that
your only real advice, concerning the erasing of
corruption, would be to eradicate a majority of the
human race.
If, in the future, you do find a way to rid us of
our mortal foibles, please let us know. We're interested.

An old friend of mine, recently graduated, tells
me that the people over at the library are slightly
bitter alxnit the remarks made alxnit their efficiency in the T(xllx. Out of a sense of fair play
the T(X)llx)x has this to say: the library is a fine
institution every school should have one, and, for
the most part, they do a magnifi
