Of the twenty-one contests in the
Northern Oratorical League, nine have
been victories for Michigan, more.than
twice as many honors as the nearest
of her six competitors. Six of these
contests were won in succession.
Of the peace contests, three of the
five State Contests have been victories

DEBATE JANUARY 17
The announcement that the Students' Lecture Association had disbanded
caused such general disappointment that the University- Oratorical Associa-
tion has decided to extend its list of entertainments and, add a short program
of lectures and readings.
In offering this course the association hopes to give continuity to the
custom of each year bringing to Ann Arbor, distinguished public men, who
are held up as examples of the speaker's are in addition to presenting its own
best student talent and that of other universities who meet us in contest.
In so doing, the purpose of the organization,-to foster and develop a strong
interest in oratory among the students of the university, has not been lost
sight of, and the Association congratulates itself in being able to offer the
following numbers for its twenty-second annual program.
SCHEDULE OF CONTESTS.
WILL PRESENT "JULIUS CAESAR."
Professor T..C. Trueblood Will Read
Professor T. C. Trueblood will pre-
sent for the association this year
Shakespeare's great oratorical play
"Julius Caesar." Those who have
heard Professor Trueblood in his artis-
tic presentation of "Hamlet," "Mac-
beth," "Ingomar, the Barbarian," and
in his numerous miscellaneous recitals
will not miss this opportunity of hear-
ing him again. Extended comment is
not necessary, for Professor Trueblood
is very well known to Michigan audi-
ences. He has read with flattering suc-
cess before general and college audi-
ences all over this country and in for-
eign lands, and while he has always
charmed his general hearers, he has
not failed to satisfy the most critical
audiences everywhere. Shakespeare
is always interesting when interpreted
by a good reader, and this is a fine op-
portu'nity to hear a great play so in-
The association presents here the
only opportunity to hear Prof. True-
blood this year.
ORATORICAL ASSOCIATION TO

TO SPEAK ON PEACE MOVEMENT
The Hon. Edwin D. Mead Obtained to
Deliver Address at Michigan.
The annual debate wih the Univer-
sity of Chicago occurs January 17.
These contests have always aroused
the .keenest interest among students,I
second only to former athletic con-
tests with that institution. Since the
"late unpleasantness" with the confer-
ence this is the only contest left in
which these old rivals are permitted
to take part. There is always the
keenest rivalry and the hardest kind
of forensic contest. The subject this
year is a very practical one: "Resolv-
ed, that the plan of banking reform
proposed by the Nationoal Monetary
Commission should be adopted by
Congress." An extended bibliography
of the subject has been prepared, and
also a schedule of the contests, which
may be had at the oratory room, 302
N. W., University hall.
Those who wish to enter the contests
must join either the Alpha Nu or the
Adelphi society of the literary depart-
ment, or the Jeffersonian or the Web-
ster society of the law department.
They must be prepared to speak in
the& society preliminaries by Nov. 8.
Each society will select a team and
contest in the inter-department debat-
es from which two teams will be se-
lected, one to debate with the Uni-'
versity of Chicago here and the other
with Northwestern University the
same night at Evanston. All who have
ability as debaters should come out
for the teams and give Michigan the
strongest trios she has ever had on the
platform. The debate with Chicago
is one of the regular course offered by
the Oratorical association.

comedy, "The Honeymoon," and it was
pronounced the best amateur play
seen at Michigan in a long time. On
March 7, the association expects 'to
present Goldoni's comedy, "The Fan."
Many Ann Arbor people will remember
a delightful play, "A Curious Mishap,"
by the same author, which was played
by the Donald Robertson Players some
time ago. "The Fan" is about as good
a ,play as "A Curious Mishap." It is
clean comedy full of interesting situ-
ations. The mere fact that Goldoni,
whom Browning called "The King of
Comedy," is the author, is enough to
commend this play. While a still bet-
ter play may be selected, the usual
high grade performance is assured.
Those who take the parts in the play
are selected from the best talent
among the association members, es-
pecially those who have shown marked
success in the classes in Shakespear-
ean and' dramatic reading. The cast
is carefully trained by the department
of oratory. Through the annual play
the association not only gives its mem-
bers an opportunity to enjoy a good
play, but also encourages the study of
dramatic literature from the acting
point of view.
Geology Course 7 Will Not be Give'
Another new course,. that of muni-
cipal surveying, has been announced
in the engineering department. The
new course will be given by Prof.
Clarence Johnston. It will be used in
connection with a course in sanitary
engineering to be given by Prof. W.
C. Head, who for a number of years
was one of the most prominent men
on the faculty of the University of
Kansas, and who has been recently se-
cured by the Regents of the Univer-
sity of Michigan. Prof. Johnston will
also give two new courses in forestry.
One is a course of topographical draw-
ing and mapping, and the other is a
course in field topography, designed
especially for the forestry students-
Attention is called to the fact that
course 7 in geology will not be given
this year. Through some mistake, the
course appears in the literary an-
nouncement in connection with other
work offered by the geology depart-
ment. It should have been omitted
entirely, as Professor Hobbs, who is
on a leave of absence, Will not be here

tional Conservation Congress which

pects to be back. in Ann Arbor the
