NOW A LAW STUDENT NOVEMBER
The campus boasts of no more
portant personage than Jack. Neither
the Commandant nor the President
'holds a higher head. The Seniors in
all their glory, with mustaches and
and canes, are
"small skimpshun" compared to him.
Like George Washington, the
collector of subscriptions to
funds, Jack has the prerogative of going where he "listeth,"
and making himself at home anywhere from Judge Barker's sanctum
sanctorum to the lowly furnace room.
He is welcome everywhere everywhere except in. Dean Mulecher's German class. The D. of M. has given

out of him, and recently, when Jack

a number of old students and Freshmen who have already demonstrated
their dramatic ability or who seem to
have marked talent, it looks as if the
Strollers will have an "Amateur
Night" performance this year which
will surpass any they have ever presented. All students who are not already members of the organization
are eligible to compete for the prizes

are taking advantage of this opportunity to prove their ability to win
a prize. Two prizes of $5.00 are offered, one for the best act presented
by a single person, and the other for

The Wildcats made the Black and
Red collection look like a black and
blue distribution last Saturday. Cincinnati hasn't scored this year and
from present indications she won't.
The game was only of interest in the
performance of the Wildcats. The
sons of Cincinnatus were beaten from

used a multitude of substitutes. Every
boy in the school who had a football
suit and an "afternoon off" apparently got into the game. After every play
a troup of substitutes would go out
and then after the period was up the
regular, who was well rested up would
go back into the game.
'Doc" Rodes was star extraordinary.
He danced thru the Cincinnati defenders like he was on roller skates and
had his pants greased. He gained
steadily thru the line. He broke loose,
one wonderful run for ninety yards
and a supposed touchdown, but Referee Hamm got the impression that
his foot touched tho outside line and
the play did not count. His passing
was excellent. The long throws failed at first but were successful enough
to let Kentucky get long gains, three
for about thirty yards, and a short
gain or two. "Doc's" punting was also

Kinne was last year's Kinne. Tho
