Willkie To Address All-Camp- us Dr. Amry Vandenbosch, recently chosen most distinguished professor at the University In 1945 by members of the faculty, spoke at Memorial hall Tuesday plght on his findings during three months of research on small nations. lie discussed the place of the small states in international politics and organization. The status of a country is determined by its military power in actual warfare. Dr. Vandenbosch said. Voting Equality Equality of voting power between large and small nations will produce an international organization that is "sterile and impotent," he said. The block of the large states by the small has been admitted to be one of the chief causes of the failure of the League of Nations by Gen. Jan C. Smuts, originator of the Idea of allowing the small states a large voice in the League, the speaker said. The place of the small states in the United Nations Organization will not be as great as In the League, Dr. Vandenbosch said. Be' cause Great Britain, Russia and the j United States bore the brunt of the war, their statesmen insisted that they should have a stronger place In the International organization than In the League, he said. The small nations havfe faced Convo Finalists To Debate At Convo Today T'T ,he (ha riafin ni h of their r!d-sa,- the small states. He charged that the small state is an anachronism in a day of ex panding and intensified technology, a htnderance to economic progress and higher standards of living." He said it was not an argument "against the small state, but rather against economic nationalism. The large states were just as guilty as the small in this, he said. Speaking for the small states, Dr. Vandenbosch stated that "we shall have to admit that there is an element of truth in their contention that they contribute more than their share to the world's cultural goods." fMen's Residence Contract Awarded A contract was. awa, ded for a new men's residence hall and approval was given for the erection of a fine arts building by the board of trustees of the University W. - ' - i At a April 1 ing, it would meeting of the WSSF, held in the Student Union buildwas decided that' the drive continue this quarter, and better results are anticipated. Miss Dorothy Collins, adviser, stated that a new drive would begin April 8. and last through the 12th. the purpose of which will be to contact townspeople and new students to give personal donations. Letters will be sent to all campus organizations asking them to adopt special projects to collect money for the fund. The campus goal for the year is $2,500, and contributions amount to $1,500 at this time. Miss Collins says that although UK falls under other schools In the drives, the present rise in enrollment should make it comparatively easy to raise the remaining $1,000.

Concluding, he stated: "If nationalism succumbs to rival ideologies, the result very probably wilt be the merging of the smaller states with the larger ones, until the world is divided into two or three huge hostile camps.

(Daddy) Boles, manager of athletic ticket sales, has been appointed manager of the Coopers-tow- n housing project. Dr. H. L. Donovan announced Tuesday. The appointment, effective yesterday, will result in the transfer of Mr. Boles from the Athletic department, with which he has been associated in various capacities since 1916. In Charge Of Rentals As Cooperstown manager, he will be in charge of rentals, maintenance and repairs, and general supervision of the student housing project, which is the largest of its kind in the United States. Assign ment of men to the project will continue to be under the tumuyn of the dean of mea oi. Donovan said. During his 30 years with the department, Mr. Boles has served in all capacities from instructor in physical education to athletic director. In 1918, his first year at the school, he was director of the gymnasium and assistant football coach under Dr. John J. Ttgert, now president of the University of Florrt ida. After the departure of Dr. in 1917. Mr. Boles served as head football and basketball coach until after the first world war. when he became director of athletics, a position he held until 1934. No Successor Appointed Athletic Director Bernle Shively said yesterday that no successor had been appointed for Mr. Boies, out that a new setup for ticket sales would be announced.

Repeated applications soapy water and paint, all dosed by earnest people, both young and old, made ready the frail building that, until it fell apart, served active drama. Even then old lumber was salvaged and added to that of a row of Negro shacks to form the of which present structure, has housed the University dramatics for eighteen years. "Very ingenious," innumerable visitors have remarked, "but a disgrace to the campus." The early theater was named The Romany, where productions and instruction were erratic, but in 1928, with the coming of Frank Fowler as director, the name was changed to The Guignol Theatre, and under this aegis Lexington (and the Blue-graregion) has received the only legitimate theater faie it has en one-thi- rd ss joyed in its own territory. For with the decision of New York producers some years ago not to carry their plays into the "provinces," Lexington, once known as the "best stand in the South," became barren of outside theater one-nig- ht anter-tainme- Seating but two hundred persons, with no capital and without subsidization beyond a director, a cardboard building, and electric current, Guignol has supplied regular dramatic entertainment which is unexcelled In little theaters anywhere hi the country, both as to the selection of plays and their production. This statement has evidence in the fact that Guignol has been selected as one of the twenty-fiv- e little theaters making up the National Theatre Conference. The result of this feverish activity over a period of eighteen years is that every available inch of space is overcrowded. The costume room where all costumes are made and stored, is needed during productions as a checkroom for patrons' wraps. The director's office doubles as a business office. The lounge, where coffee is served between acts, by day is a classroom, paint room, sewing room, and general workshlp. Classes in dramatic production have been held for 18 years without benefit of a classroom other than this small general work room. During the existence of Guignol, 149 plays have been produced, up and above the uncountable laboratory plays held in with contests and classes. Here, then, in central Kentucky, is a bee-hiof endeavor housed in an amazingly inadequate, building, but presenting a uniform, high standard schedule of plays and dramatic work each sea son, under tremendous handicaps. Here are desires for larger creative fields, and personnel eager to de-- 1 ar ve velop dramatically this section so rich in history and heritage. The entire history of Guignol may be divided into eras. The Fowler era. from the founding of the theater to 1944; and the Briggs era, from that date to the present day. Wallace N. Briggs, who took over direction of the theater in the absence of Professor Fowler, is recognized throughout the region as a champion of student actors. During his two-yereign at Guignol, Mr. Briggs has cast more than thirty University students in parts, many of them leading roles. ar "Three's a Family," the play in the offing, will mark the completion of eighteen years of entertaining service to the University and the Bluegrass region. The new play, which will open May 6, also marks the celebration of the 150th pro- duction to be presented by the little theater. Peterson Authorized University D. Peterson. comptroller, was authorized to confer with the Civil Production Administration at Louisville for a federal permit and priorities to build the dormitory. The contract w. awarded to the Hargett company on condition that priorities and fedei al approval could be obtained. The men's residence hail will be constructed facing Washington avenue and will complete the quadrangle of men's residence halls. Recreational facilities for all of the men's units will be provided in the new building and it will provide living space for 108 men. Dr. Donovan said that the f.ne arts building is planned to house the music department, art department, the Gulgnol theater and classes in speech.
