of more attention than It gets. Few
Indeed are they who know that it ac
tually occurs. It Is a sorry circum
stance. This oratorical contest should
mean something to the university. It
is ono of tho great intellectual con
tests of the year and should bo put on
a par. with debate. True, Nebraska
enters no intercollegiate contests and
that may bo ono reason why there Is
little interest taken. Wesleynn, Cot
nor or any of tho small Bchools of
our state are ahead of us. This should

to have a big oratorical contest every

enter some association.

a few are present to hear tho Bpeeches.

the students, because they do , not
know about It.
Ono or two have come o.ut, but they
are very coy. Each seems to fear the
ridicule that always comes tp the
first. But it Is time for thq straw hat
and there Is no need to keep it under
cover. Put them on, boye; they are

not wise to undertake too much. The
freshman hop committee might agree
with us. The military and Pan-Hellenic
balls will end tho dancing If the

hot weather on such affairs. How
over, there is no need to mourn as we
have had a 'plenty of them.
