In "The Climbers," given Thursday
evening by the Strollers. The strong

Emery Frazler, was a cast of stars.
The financial success of the play was
equaled by an artistic success, a step

The board of trustees of the University was present at this chapel exercise.
Mr. Colvin continued:

President McVey read his quarterly
report at a meeting of the Board of
Trustees of the University of Kentucky in the President's office yesterday afternoon.
The report summarizes the present situation at the
University on increased cost of operation, necessity for an increase in salaries, recent legislation affecting the
University, housing of students, housing facilities for faculty members,
sites for fraternity buildings, necessity for additional
equipment, the Memorial Building situation, the University library, present

students is rapidly becoming a men
ace to democracy," said Dr. McVey,
"and the increased cost of higher ed

difficult for Kentucky boys and young
women to procure a good education,
thereby limiting the possibilities of
their leadership. The day is past when
a man can reach leadership except
those of real native ability come from
homes where the income is small."
