Writer Believes Coach Answer to Grid Question : SIX PLAYS Because of the increase in capacity of the Romany theater, the Romany, during its season ticket campaign which begins January 4 and continues until Febraury 1, is able to offer substantial reductions on prices of season tickets to all students and faculty members of schools and colleges in Lexington. The double season ticket, which will admit two to each Romany perform ance of the season, will be sold for $5. The new tickets will not only admit all subscribers to five plays of the fourth season, but also to the last play of the third season, to be given early- in February. This means that two persons are entitled to attend six performances for $5, thus making. the cost of a single admissioa only 1 4 cents more thaa the adntiwion to a moving picture show. Another feature will be the reduc tion of 25 per cent of the cost of any or all tickets to members of any organization already in existence at this date who have 100 per cent of their members subscribe. This applies to any club, fraternity, or organiza tion of any kind whatsoever, provided there at at least 10 members. If the student is a member of more than one organization, his subscription counts in the quota of every or ganization to which he belongs. The single subscription, which will be 3, will entitle the subscriber to attend each of the five plays of the fourth season, in addition to the final play of the third season. A double subscription may count as subscriptions for two members of an organization. Those who have been granted mem bership in Romany organization and are therefore entitled to 10 per cent FL00RSATURDAY Buckeyes Won Ohio Conference Championship Last Spring; "Wave Already Defeated Berea This Year AT 8:00 TIP-OF- F O'CLOCK Wildcats Will Meet University of Indiana Team Tuesday Night (By WARREN A. PRICE) Basketball will be of paramount in terest in Lexington tomorrow night, when the strong University of Cincinnati quintet will play the Wildcats in the opening game of the season at the new gym. The contest will be called at 8:00 o'clock. The Cincinnati artists, who won the Ohio Conference basketball championship last year with one of the best teams in the North, have already set sail for another championship season. Last Saturday night they quelled the strong Berea College outfit by a 75 to 24 count, while two week3 before their practice periods have been spent intermittently in beating strong independent teams around Cincinnati. Although the Wildcats have not re ceived the opportunity of demonstrat ing their wares in a real game, they have shown to good advantage in practice sessions, but they will have to improve appreciably by tomorrow night, if they expect to cope on equal terms with the Ohio aggregation. In scrimmages with the freshmen, the Wildcats are unable to hold their own consistently, but in shooting and pass ing they are about on the average with any other team which has been practidas a little over three weeks.
