There are two very good reasons
why University Hall should be crowd-
ed with Michigan students at the ora-
torical contest Friday night. In the
first place, it will probably be one of
the finest contests yet held in the
Northern Oratorical League. The fact
that every man in the contest is an
honor man, is full of significance. It
means that every man in the contest
is experienced and has already won
laurels which Friday night he will en-
deavor to defend. Further, it means,
that Michigan's representative will
need all the help that the student
body can give in the way of college
enthusiasm. Mr. Halliday will speak
first on Friday night. It is the rule
for the representative of the college
at which the contest takes place to
deliver his oration first, in order to
compensate for the advantage of hav-
ing a home audience. It is up to the
student body to give him the support
necessary to win this contest. In
the' debate between Wisconsin and
Michigan, enthusiastic support of the
team was entirely lacking. There was
no singing, no preliminary yells were
geven before the debaters appeared.
The meeting was as still and grave as
a deacon's assembly. No alumnus of
Michigan or any other college would
have thought that audience was a col-
lege audience. Such a condition is
lamentable. What we need is a little
of the enthusiasm displayed in the
football bleachers, or at the athletic
meet. Michigan has great cause to be
proud of her debaters and orators.
They have done work worthy of her
highest praise. And the student body
should support that branch of college
activity earnestly. A large number
of seats are already sold for the con-
test Friday night. The majority will
be Michigan students. On the plat-
form with the disadvantage of speak-
ing first, will be Michigan's repre-
sentative. It is then, the positive du-
ty of every one attending the contest
to do his best to spur Mr. Halliday on
to his best achievements by making
him feel that he has the earnest sup-
port of every professor and student in
the University of Michigan.

juniors and freshmen, but definite ar-
rangements have not yet been made
for it. The teams are all hard at
work, keeping up their practice and
perfecting their team work, so when
the games are played, they will prob-
ably be in better trim than ever be-
SENIOR LAW ORATOR.
In the Senior Law oratorical con-
test, first place was given Edward
Sonnenschein, who, it will be remem-
bered, won second place in the 'Var-
sity Oratorical contest last year and
who has been prominent also in debat-
ing. Mr. Sonnenschein's oration enti-
tled "Faith in the Republic" was giv-
en seven firsts and one second, thus
making the decision of the judges all
but unanimous, both on composition
and delivery. Second place was won
by Schaberg, whose subject was "A
National Reflection." "The Officer of
the Court," by Guy. was given
third place. Senn was given fourth
place and Axford, fifth. The
orations were all carefully prepared
and showed an unusual amount of
hard, conscientious work. The judges
were: Professor Sage, Dr. Effinger,
Mr. Wedemeyer and Dr. Florer.
WORK TO START ON BRICK WALL
Students returning to Ann Arbor in
the fall will find Ferry Field surround-
ed by a brick wall that will be a
credit to the 'Varsity.
Yesterday afternoon at the meeting
of the Wall committee of the Board
of Control the contract for the con-
struction was awarded to Koch Bros.,
of Ann Arbor. The wall is to be of
dark red Collingwood brick, nine and
a half feet high and twelve inches
thick. Pilasters of brick are to be
erected every sixteen feet along the
wall and the whole is to be capped
by a caping of white Berea stone, se-
curing quite an artistic effect. The
work is to be finished by the first of
September under penalty of forfeit of
twenty-five dollars per day, so that
work will commence at once and be
rushed to completion. The contract
price was $13,025.
At the last meeting of the Athletic
board, Professor Sadler resigned from
his position as chairman of the com-
mittee on the construction of the wall
around Ferry Field.
