The play opens with the presentation of the fan to Lady Windermere
by her 'husband on he 21st birthday; during the day several people call

among students at that time Presi
dent Barker decided to give a recep
ttoa to all students and members of
the acuity on that night. The reception included dancing, refreshments,
fortune telling and games and they
lasted until one o'clock in the morning,
thinking that by this time it would be
too late and the students would be too
tired to indulge in any pranks. At this
juncture the author of this history
conceived the idea of consulting with
officials and offering Stroller services
on this night and while doing this
Professor Melcher suggested Amateur
Night and ever since the custom has
clung to the University and it is one
of the most pleasing evenings of the
year.
It might be interesting to know that,
up tc
the btroliers had no pin
or emblem by which thev tngrht be
designated and it was finally decided
to vote on through. The author of

m

the history was the successful contestant in the design for a pin which is
the present pin worn by the Strollers.
The history goes on down giving details of each play and the members of
the casts and the towns which were
visited. "Charley's Aunt" was one of
the most successful productions up
to this time in the history. It was in
this play that many Stroller stars who
long upheld the honor and glory of
the organization first took part.
It was in the 1917 production "The
Lion and the Mouse," when Mamie
Miller Woods and "Frizzy" first swept
Kentucky audiences off their feet
and
with their rare interpretations
capability as young Thespians. Then
later in"Under Covcr"Lucy Young and
Gus Gay came into the limelight. With
the "Climbers" came Mary Elizabeth
Downing, Milton Revill and Herndon
Evans. These people, Strollers will
never forget.
The, Strollers are doing greater
things this year Chan they have done
previously their talent is multiple
compared to former years and the
executive and business organization
is unquestionably remarkable in its ef
ficiency.
It has been an honor to be
a Stroller it will always continue to
be an honor. To have taken part in
a Stroller cast means to hve created
something which will never die, to
have given to ttoe University a touch
of refinement and culture which comes
only thru the production of the drama.
This time next year "Lady Winder
mere's Fan" will be history and will
be entered on the records as those
other 13 plays wim'ch 'have gone before.
Are you going to miss the chance of
seeing the best play the Strollers of
the University have ever presented to
a Lexington audience since their es
tablishment on the campus fourteen
years ago?
University night is the evening of
April 26 (Thursday) in- Wjoodland
Auditorium at 8:15 o'clock.
