On April 8 the students of the University will have opportunity of seeing
the eleventh annual play produced by the Strollers. There is every

ington. Even the stage manager is satisfied with the progress of rehearsals.
The cast is the largest ever seen here in a Stroller play and its quality is undoubtedly the highest. There are old and experienced actors whose names are
to University of Kentucky students by reason of their excellent
work in past years; and there are new members, who have never before appeared, whose work will be a surprise to patrons of the play when produced.
Competent judges have expressed very forcefully their opinion that these
new members of the cast show marked talent and infuse into this already
worthy and impressive organization the new blood and spirit always necessary to the progress of a forward-goininstitution.
The organization known as The Strollers, has had a career on this campus that has for eleven years been one full of increasing influence and
leadership. Each year has marked an advance in quality of plays produced
and quality of acting exhibited in them. From a small unrecognized band of
enthusiasts in dramatic art, forced to meet in hallways and private rooms for
want of friendlier shelter, depending on turn of circumstance for financial
succor, they have grown, because of the real appeal of their work, to be what
they are at present, an organization of large membership, to whose ranks It
Is an honor to be admitted and one much sought after, with a room for rehearsal and social diversions furnished by their own money and maintained
by them, with an imposing bank account, and a loyal and talented membership, from whose ranks a cast could be chosen for any play suited for college
presentation that would compare favorably with professional achievement.
This is the worth of the Strollers in themselves.
Not only have the Strollers grown and increased in merit and reputation,
and indirectly served the University, at the same time they were ministering
unto their own growth, but during a lean year, when the finances of the University were strained, these Strollers at one time stepped into the breach and
lent the University the balance of its money left after their expenses had
been paid. During the war they purchased Liberty Bonds to the extent of
500 The school spirit and patriotism of this organization are beyond question; their dramatic work is of outstanding excellence, and they deserve the
unqualified support of every student, teacher and staff member of the University.
Those who wish to see a good play well presented and at the same time
give endorsement to the organization which so richly deserves It, let them
buy tickets to the Stroller play, "The Climbers," which will be presented in
the Lexington Opera 'House on April 8. Talk about it to friends and give
them a house such as has never before been seen in Lexington.
As a word of private advice, the Kernel would say, "act quickly If you
want a good seat. They are already on sale and are going fast. If you don't
act now you may be left out."
