Michigan's record in oratory and de-
bating for'the past year is one of the
best that has ever been made in that
line of work. Two teams, each rep-
resenting a different side of the ques-
tion, won in the Intercollegiate de-
bate, Northwestern and Chicago being
their respective opponents. The State
Peace Oratorical Contest was won by
Percival Blanchard, '14, in competi-
tion with representatives from five
other colleges of this state. The In-
terstate Peace Contest at Monmouth,
Ill., was also won by Blanchard. Pit-
ted against him were the winners of
the state contests of Wisconsin, Illi-
nois, Iowa, and Nebraska. By win-
ning this contest Blanchard qualified
to speak at the National Peace Contest
which was held at Lake Mohonk, N. Y.
before the meeting of the Peace Con-
ference. He won this by the unani-
mous vote of the judges.
The only contest lost to Michigan
during the year was that of the North-
ern Oratorical League.
"I feel very gratified with the rec-
ord made this year,"said Prof. True-
blood, "and consider it the most suc-
cessful year we have had considering
the number of contests entered since.
1898. The honors won in the past
year should prove a great stimulus to
those men who will take up oratorical
work next year and I look to see a rep-
etition of this year's successes then."
"NEMO" REISER, '14, LEAVES
SATURDAY FOR NAPLES, ITALY.
Leonard "Nemo" Reiser, '14, chron-
icler of things feminine for The Mich-
igan Daily, left college yesterday af-
ternoon in order to join his parents
in a three months' trip through Italy,
Switzerland and Germany. Rieser
will sail from New York on Saturday
on the "Friederich der Grosse" for Na-
ples. While abroad "Nemo" will act
as special foreign correspondent to
The Michigan Daily.
Harry J. Bill, '14 E, Recovers Slowly.
Harry J. Bill, '14 E, who was re-
cently struck by a plank at the new
Hill Auditorium, is convalescing
slowly. His condition last night was
reported to be favorable, but it is
doubtful if he will be able to resume
his classes this semester.
