Smith called the Kernel Thursday morning, after the paper went

The resolutions were obtained
only after a hectic verbal exchange

At least 40 of the 936 names were

West. Dick Tracy, and a
local horse parlor operator.

Evidently the number checked
represents most of the total since
all SGA members and the Dean of

A modern experimental arena version of the Greek tragedy by
Sophocles, the play will use the
audience as part of the cast: the
citizens of Thebes.
Since the entire' show, including
the audience, will be on the regular
Guignol stage, capacity will be limited to 100 persons nightly.
Briefly, this is the story of Oedi
pus: A son born to Laius and
king and queen of Thebes, was
turned over to a shepherd to be
abandoned on Mount Cithaeron because Apollo's oracle had foretold
that he would kill his father and
marry his mother.
The shepherd gave the child to
another shepherd, who in turn
handed it over to Polybus and Mer- ope, the childless rulers of Corinth.
They named the infant Oedipus, be
cause of its swollen feet, and brought
him up as their own son. Oedipus
learned of the oracle's prophecy and
fled Corinth to avoid killing Poly
bus and marrying Merope. In his
travels he killed Laius, answered the
riddle of the Sphinx, married Jo- casta and succeeded Laius as King
of Thebes. This is the situation
when the play begins.

That at the same time, they are
trying to lure America Into a world
dictatorship, using "world peace" as
bait?
Well, neither did we. But this Interesting bit of information was
publicity sheets and publications
which come in the mail every day.
Of course, the paper this publicity
is printed on is not used just to add
to the paper shortage. Everybody
wants something.
The Kernel receives daily everything from hate peddlers' literature
publicity to
and Communist-frotemperance clip sheets. Just to give
you an idea of what publicity-hungr- y
persons and groups send out,
we have saved a typical week's mail,
instead of following our usual procedure of filing it in the waste
basket.
The little pamphlet warning about
"FEPC and the Minority Machine,"
from which we just quoted, is sent
in hopes of getting us to subscribe
to the Williams Intelligence Summary, which will reveal such things
as "the real story behind Dean
Acheson" and "the real story behind
General Eisenhower's
under.
cover campaign for the presidency."
We used to enjoy getting the
weekly publicity of the International
Union of Students, a Communist-fro- nt
organization, because the foreign stamps went so well with
amateur collections. But now they
have quit using stamps and use
metered mail, so we dont enjoy
them anymore.
The IUS sends out interesting
messages, such as the announcement
of a new slogan for the year, "Students, Unite for Peace, for Better
Conditions of Life and Study!"
It also issues a weekly "IUS News
Service," containing news of students refused visas to travel to IUS
conventions, news of new scientific
books in the USSR, news of Communist country students who are
breaking world sports records, and
such other invaluable baloney. We
could hardly get along without all
this inside stuff.
The American Party, which we decline to call either good or bad until
further analysis is completed, sends
periodic reports of its program. The
latest release states that the American Party is in favor of legal, educational, economic, cultural, and

Campus Prepares For Christmas
By Giving Children Parties
By Marilyn Kilgus

Christmas may be almost a month
away, but organizations on campus
are already putting the "Christmas
Spirit" into action. The majority of
sororities and fraternities at UK
have invited the less fortunate
children from all over Lexington to
chapter houses for candy, toys, and
a glimpse of Santa Claus. Oh, this
isn't .the first time; year after year
they have these special little guests.
But it is good to recognize these
parties as a sincere effort to bring
Christmas to those wo need it, and
as an effort sponsored by UK students. An addition to the annual
Y" party for underprivileged Negro
children is the Freshman Y's drive
to begin Monday, for funds to aid
the Lincoln School children. As a
UK student, further the "Spirit"
