Tho oratorical association mot Sat
urday utternoon with President Jones
in tho chair. Schuyler Miller and Cor
responding Secretary Ropor explained
the proposed plan of a contest between
Nobraska and Minnesota. Thoso pres
ent expressed their hearty approval
of tho many now and striking features
that aro to bo embodied In tho govern
Four suitable subjects for extom
poro oratory will bo mailed by each
university to its opponent on tho same
day. Two subjects aro to bo chosen
from each sot of four. Of course these
may bo for sufficient reasons rojected.
Each university will select two ora
tors for tho contest. Fifteen minutes
will bo allowed to each speaker. Tho
languago is to bo entirely tho product
of tho occasion, and the Judges will be
authorized to discrlminato against
any one who has committed his ora
tion or any appreciable part thereof.
At G o'clock of tho evening on which
the contest is held, tho contestants
will review their individual subjects.
This allotment will bo under the su
pervision of the chancellor of tho uni
versity at which tho contest Is held.
There will be Ave Judges, each decid
ing for himself, what constitutes good
oratory, and will sign and seal his de
cision without conference.
,Tha locoL.contest to, select. our .two
representatives will be held April 20.
It will follow Quite closely the essen
tial features of tho inter state in order
to better acquaint tho contestants
with tho work they will have to per
form when they meet in a larger
arena. A committee possessing gen
eral supervisory powers has been ap
pointed. In a few days it will an
nounce the contest subjects, theso hav
ing dependent upon tho numbers of
competitors. It is the intent to choose
subjects that aro full of interest and
have not been rendered threadbare
by repeated oratorical milling.
An attractive feature of this new
leaguo is tho story-wrltlng contest.
Three stories from each university
competing for honors. The two win
ning first and second places will bo
read at tho close of tho oratorical
contest. The English department has
the matter in charge.
The object of this extempore ora
tory Is to cultivate a dignified and
manly, but simple and direct Btylo.
We lack faith in that training which
labors on a single oration until tho
student knows tho vocal intonation,
Inflection, pitch and degree of force
he will apply to each word: and JuBt
how ho will manipulate his hands and
feet throughout tho oration.
