It is an open question whether "college
oratory" ought to be encouraged or not.
This peculiar kind of eloquence could not
hold a miscellaneous audience together
fifteen minutes. The contests seem to
have developed a style that must be un
learned when the onitor enters the con
tests of real life.
But whatever may be thought of this,
it is evident that our state association
must go under. For years it has been
an object of contempt and pity. Three
colleges have already withdrawn and our
students have lost all interest in its con
tests. The local association cannot sup
port itself unless a barb-frat scrap is got
up for its benefit every year. The expen
ses of the state association are as heavy
as before, with only two institutions to
pay them. Our debt will grow as long
as we remain in the association. Evi
dently the time has come for us to pay
n p and quit.
If it is thought desirable to continue
these oratorical contests, it is probable
that an association could be formed with
the universities now in the foot-ball
league. Such an association would be
less expensive and more respectable.
