NEW LITTLE THEATRE ON
WINSLOW STREET TO BE
Space is Big
The work on the Romany Theatre
street is progrsfcing
by November. Elaborate decorations
nicely and is expected to be completed
are now in progress. It is asked that
the public not judge the theatre by its
exterior as the promoters have not
a large sum of money and as the thea
tre will have to be moved from its
present site in three years, everything
is being put into equipment and appointments.
The decorations, architecture and details are following the
Romany ideas suggested by the var
ious countries through which the Gypsies habitually wandered.
There are some original features in
the equipment. The foot lights are
in the ceiling and throw the light directly over a silver reflector between
the curtain and the front of the stage
which directs a diffused light upon
the actors eliminating the hard shadows and sharp lines. There will be
border lif lights, mak
ing- a sky line of 26 feet, which will
do away with cloth borders for the
ceiling of the stage. The stage of the
theatre is 40 feet wide which assures
rapid scene changes and makes possi- on

The following important communication should be carefully
read and its admonition taken
seriously by every driver or
owner of an automobile who
uses the campus roads:
Mr. Raymond Kirk,
Editor, The Kernel,
University of Kentucky.
My Dear Mr .Kirk:
The congestion of automobile
traffic on the campus has reached such a point that it will be
necessary to maintain regulations
concerning it. The driving at
high speeds through the campus
is bound to result in very serious
accidents. There will be posted
in the near future, regulations
regarding automobile traffic and
every owner of an automobile
is requested to observe them to
the letter. Unless we do this it
will be necessary to resort to the
exclusion of automobiles from
the campus. These regulations
will he reasonable and fair, but
in order to avoid the confusion
that arises it will be necessary
to obey them fully.
I trust that I may have the
cooperation of all the students
who use automobiles.
