On April 8 the students of the University will have opportunity of seeing indica- the eleventh annual play produced by the Strollers.

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." well-know- n When food Is conspicuously missing, And the table is devoid of viand; The old can o' zip Puts a smile on your lip, And you fast in that heaven beyond. Speaker in Chapel: "I wish now to tax your memory." "Has It Wail from the Overtaxed: come to that?" The Knight of the Lexington Drug declines to speak this week; instead he sends what he calls a poem. If that is his idea of the muse we must blush for him. We present It with due apologies ours, not his: "Lips that touch a cigaroot Shall never rest beneath my snoot." Sally Burns: "O, I wish someone would send me orchids for Easter." Terrible: "I never send fruit." Mademoiselle On Dit says: "I ought to be happy now that spring is here and there is a slight prospect of an Easter bonnet, but I can't help thinking that spring poetry, especially the above, is worse than winter weather." o The Way They Feel. Freshie: Yes, father, I'm a big gun up here at school. Father: Then why don't I hear bet ter reports? Kitty: "Oh! don't you know I've got to stop dancing? I've got falling arches." Jacks : "So do I."
