"We have heard such vicious and uni
versal criticism of the awards made 1)3
lis in connection with the oratorical eon
test held in the Chapel Friday morning,
16 5nst., that we deem it but justice to
ourselves to say a word in explanation of
our action. We were unanimously of the
opinion that the oration of J. S. Dales
was far and away the best of the three,
.and we felt that that of itself was glory
enough for him. We regarded the ora
tion of our promising young friend,
13. W. Caldwell, as second best, and of
course he thereupon was awarded second
honors. We regarded the effort of L.
Fossler with horror and amazement, and
we felt that nothing but first honors eould
repay him for being laughed at so ranch.
Ifihe oration of Mr. Dales was very fair
hi composition, especially the poeticaj
pant, and we congratulate him upon 51.
Nevertheless, if occasion offers, we shall
entilruBiastacalily unite with the 'Haven in
saying to Mr. Dales "TRvrmmnmV
