glory when he won the State championship last Monday night over rep- resentatives from five other Kentucky
colleges. He will next represent the
State in a contest with the winners of
the contests in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin to be
held April 7. At a later date he will
be the Kentucky representative in a
contest with North and South Dakota,

decision were Professor B. C. Van

several of the artists of the Univered in

contest, which is conducted each year
by tho Strollers, has always created
interest and many students have
shown their interest by submitting
Besides the natural desire of the
students to aid all University
there is the added inducement
in this contest of two of the best
seats in the Opera House to the artist who submits the best design. It
is to be remembered that these drawings must be in the hands of the committee before the end of next week
and those who are contemplating entering a design should lose no time in
putting it into shape.
Information regarding the contest
can be obtained from Emery Frazie:
or any member of the cast of "The
Climbers." The committee, composed
Enoch Grehan, Emery
Frazler and Horndon Evans, will examine the drawings and announce the
winner at the close of the contest.
The management reserves the right
to keep all drawings submitted.
Plans for the sale of seats are being
made and it 4s probable that all details for the opening will be made
'vithin the next few days. The four
boxes at the Opera House were engaged by different organizations of
last semester, but
there will be- plenty of available seats.
The management is expecting every
seat to be sold a short time after the
tickets are issued, as Stroller productions are growing In popularity with
The members of the cast are working night and day, rounding the play
into shape and it can be safely said
from the display of talent that this
will be one of the best amateur performances seen here in years.

Dr. Daniel Lindsay Thomas,
40 years old, head of the English Department of Centre College, is dead

his M. A. degree at Centre, he took a

The second meeting of the Woman's
League will be held Monday morning,
March 15, during the fifth period, in
the Little Theater. Mrs. F. L. McVey
will speak on the purpose and value of
having such an organization in the
University. Among the important
business matters to be brought up will
be the adoption of a constitution and
the appointmnt of a nominating com
mittee to select the candidates for offices in the League.
The initial meeting of this organiza
tion was held several weeks ago, in a
mass meeting of all the women students of the University, following the
acceptance of a petition which was
submitted to the faculty, stating the
fact that the women of the University
felt the need or an organization of
this kind, which would unify the body
of women students by bringing together the town girls and those living
in the dormitories.
One of the purposes of the League, as suggested at
that meeting, was to bring to the
University certain notable experts on
vocations for women.
The work of organization was begun at that time, by the appointment
of a committee, consisting of Mary
Van Meter and Louise Will, who with
cne other member to be selected by
Ihom, .jvere to write a constitution to
be submitted to the body of women
students at the next meeting. It Js
hoped that officers may be elected at
an early date, in order that the work
of the League may be well under way
before the end of this school year.
Mrs. McVey, who is to be the speaker at this meeting, has obtained by
experience a thorough knowledge of
the work and aims of Woman's
Leagues. Every woman student of the
University is urged to be present Monday morning, at this probably
meeting of the League.
