Plans for the third annual national
college oratorical contest on the Con-
stitution are completed, and Michigan I
will again be eptered, according to
ai announcement made yesterday by
the public speaking department. This
is the contest in which Michigan's
representative, 'Philip Krasne, '29L,
'reached the final last year, winning a
cash prize and receiving a trip to
Los Angeles, where the final contest
;Was held.
No attempt will be made to select
the entry from the University until
some time after the Christmas vaca-
tion, although students who desire
more information on the subject may
confer with Earl E. Fleischman of
the public speaking department or
Prof. R. D. T. Hollister of the same
department. Mr. Fleischman will
probably have charge of the local
contest.
In the national contest to be held
in Los Angeles again on June 23,
1927, the first prize will be $1,500 and
every one of the seven finalists will
receive a prize of at least $350. The
contest is held for the purpose of in-
creasing interest in and respect for
the Constitution of the United States ,
and is conducted and financed by the
Better America federation of Califor-
nia. The federation desires to turn
student thought toward the problems
of government, and especially that
form of government under which
Americans live.
Any undergraduate student in any
college or university in the country
is eligible to enter, although students
in professional schools are not eligi-
ble if they have a college degree. The
orations must be original, and must
not require more than ten minutes for
delivery. The subjects upon which
the students can speak are: the Con-
stitution, or either Washington, Ham-
ilton, Jefferson, Marshall, Franklin,
Madison, Webster, or Lincoln and the
Constitution.
The responsibility for the choice of
the co testant from each university
will rest entirely with the school, and
Michigan's representative will be
chosen in a contest held probably
shortly after the opening of the sec-
ond semester. The contestant must
be chosen before April 15.
The' contest will be held in three
groups, first the regional semi-finals,
or the contests within the districts
of the regions, then the regional finals,
and finally the national contest in
Los Angeles.

conduct the group on a tour of the
factory, more complete than that
given to ordinary visitors. Students
may be taken to any part of the plant
they wish. They will also be able to
mingle with the workmen, ask ques-
tions, and watch the operation of any
machine.
This trip will the semi-annual in-
spection tour which is taken each se-
mester by the machine shop classes.
"The purpose of the tour," according
to Professor Perkins, "is that the stu-
dents may be able to study the pro-
duction methods used by the various
plants in connection with the quality
of the finished product." The Cadillac
company produces only 70 to 80 cars
per day, while the Chrysler corpora-
tion puts out approximately 1200 cars
daily.
