I take this opportunity to thanks the executive
commute of the local oratorical association, for their
many kindnesses to me in preparing for tl.e state
contest. They have spared neither time nor money
in aiding me. 1 also wish to thank those members
of the faculty who have shown an interest in the suc
cess of our association. Miss Georgic Talbot and
Professor Hunt should be especially remembered for
the unflagging interest they have shown in our succeess

The cadets received a pleasing surprise when the
announcement was made that the commandant had
presented both a gold and a silver medal to the mil
itary department to be competed for between the
companies. This will necessitate a two battalion
organization, and such other changes as are necessary
under those conditions. The cadets thoroughly
appreciate the efforts of Lieutenant Griffith to increase
the interest in drill to a maximum, and his gift is in
keeping with all his previous efforts toward better
organization and better discipline. Already the
cadets are showing their appreciation of this gift by
entering the contest for the "Griffith medals" with
such zeal as to insure the closest and most exciting
contest in the history of the university cadets.
The directors of the scientific club have determ
ined to hold out inducements to the members to do
original work. To accomplish this result the follow
ing plan has been adopted. Any student without
restrictian as to class, who has pursued, or shall pur
sue, a line of original investigation, may write out a
report of such investigation and submit it to the
director of the proper department; it will then be
examined by the board and if approved the invest
igator will be notified when he may present it at a
regular meeting of the club. It is hoped that this
will encourage students in all departments to engage
in original lines of work either in the school months
or during vacations. The board of directors has
also decided to open a query department. Any
scientific question may be sent to the secretary who
will make a record of it and appoint some one to
reply to it. The question may then be called up at
any regular meeting of the club and will be answered
or discussed. I his query department will be open
