Illustrate Activities of
Lawrence and Allenby
Lowell Thomas, worlcd, traveler,
editorial observer, and well-known
author, will appear at 8 o'clock
tonight in Hill auditorium as the
sixth feature of the 1928-1929 Ora-
torical Association lecture course,
fulfilling the contract of Madame
Sun Yat-Sen who was originally
scheduled to appear on the course
but who was forced to cancel her
engagement here and return to
China to attend the re-burial of
her husband.
Thomas, now in his early thir-
ties, has already experienced a mostl
amazing career of romantic travel
and adventure. He has explored
Alaska, has been a star reporter on
metropolitan dailies, a college pro-
fessor, and a literary free lance
Only American Observer
Lowell Thomas was the only
American observer with Lawrence
in his mysterious Arabic campaign#
and with General Allenby in Pales-"
tine. It was while a member of
the staffs of these great leaders
that he was enabled to gather the,
material which forms the basis of
his lecture which he will give to-
night, entitled, "With Lawrence In
Arabia and Allenby in Palestine."
Remarkable motion pictures and
stills taken on these missions will
be used in illustrating the lecture.
Thomas came to know Britain's
famous general intimately and
brings a vivid, gripping picture of
Lawrence and his superhuman
achievement in raising an army ofI
200,000 Bedouinr4 in the ArabianC
desert. His pictures of the con-
quest with Allenby in freeing the
Holy Land from the Turks are con-
sidered by many to be the finest
battle films ever shown .
In his spare time, Mr. Thomas'
has written several best sellers,I
among which "With Lowrence in
Arabia," and .'The Sea Devil," are
probably the best known.
A Noted Speaker
Not only as an author and adven-
turer has Mr. Thomas become
noted, but he is reputed to be one
of the ablest speakers in Amer-
ica today. His pictoral record of
events in Arabia and other travels
have been endorsed by over 4,000,-
000 people who have heard him
speak during the course of the past
ten years.
Tickets for the Madame Sun Yat-'
Sen lecture will be used for thisI
lecture it has-been announced by
the Oratorical Association. Single
admission tickets at $1.00 each for
this one appearance may be obtain-
ed at Slater's book store or at the
box-office in Hill auditorium, which:
will be open at 7 o'clock tonight.'
The entire right section of the main
floor and a portion of the balcony:
has been set aside for holders of
these tickets.
