The question has been brought up time
and again "Shall we remain in the Oratori
cal Association." The Hesperian has ad
vocated that we should, for it would be a
clear case of cowardice to withdraw. What

the question that w s asked before will not

disgrace to those taking active part in it. If
we understand the objects of the association,
they are to promote oratory, bring the col

desire for more extensive knowledge by ef

between the representatives of the different
educational institutions. The actions of
these representatives are supposed to be ac

all done in a purely physical manner and not
in an intellectual way. It is to the students
of our higher educational institutions that
outsiders look for good examples. Students
are in an ideal world when they are attend

their gatherings they will act as nearly in
the way in which they have been taught as
it is possible for them to do. When dele-
