Autumn and sob winds and frost, Scarlet and gold turned brown; Memories of love and of sweetness lost Drab leaves twisting down. In Competition NOW A LAW STUDENT NOVEMBER The campus boasts of no more im- portant personage than Jack. Neither the Commandant nor the President 'holds a higher head. The Seniors in all their glory, with mustaches and derbies, corduroys and canes, are "small skimpshun" compared to him. Like George Washington, the collector of subscriptions to turkey-buyin- g 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 up the idea of making a dachshund out of him, and recently, when Jack showed sentiment by barking in the midst of a German recitation, the professor expelled him. Branded as a "flunk-outin the Arts and Science Department, Jack has now entered the College of Law. He sleeps peacefully thru Judge Chalkley's lectures and recently showed his contempt for Judge Lafferty's moot court. The only course now left open to him r "Ag." is well-know- n 10 IS DATE With a list of entries which Includes 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 and many with dramatic aspirations 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 best act presented by more than one person. Comedians, readers,- "vodvil" stars, actors of all kinds, musical artists or artistes, as the case may be, should bestir themselves and get into the competition. As yet, the number of musical acts entered is small, and those who have ability in this line should not pass up the golden opportunity. Acts of all kinds are acceptable, provided they can be passed by the Board of Censorship. Originality Mystery enshrouds the coming of always counts heavily in an act. Jack. He just came.

No. 7 ''HICK" LOSES A TOOTH Grabfelder, Kinne, Haydon, Crutcher and Brit-tai- n Star 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 the start. Earl Grabfelder started things when he hopped thru tackle and sped for a touchdown on the first formation before the crowd had finished yelling for Rodes, who had carried the ball to the middle of the field. Then it Cortright Coach was easy money. 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 excellent. Then there was Brlttain at smashing half on the defense. He is the "smashingest" smashing half in tho business. He broke thru the lino nearly every play and thru the CIncy runners before got started more than once or twice. Brittain is a bear. He has outplayed every man he has played against this year. He had his face banged up by Mr. Koohler during tho first half, but got back In the game later and did valiant work. Kinne was last year's Kinne. Tho little fellow with tho angelic cast or countenance was the most sensational player of last year.
