Decision To Admit Women Is Made
In Order To Arouse Interest.
Of Student Body
Women students interested in
public speaking and debating are
elgible for the first time this year
t participate in contests sponsored
within the University by the local
contests committee of the Oratori-
cal Board, according to John E.
Webster, '30P, chairman.
The decision to admit women as
competitors in these contests
which include an extemporaneous
speaking contest each semester
and an interpretative reading con-
test in the spring was made by the
Oratorical Board with a view to
promoting interest in speech and
speech activities throughout the
entire student body.
Medals Will Be Awarded
As incentive - to further interest
in this direction gold, silver, and
bronze medals are to be awarded
to students placing first, second,
and third in each contest. It is
also possible that an oratorical
contest for freshmen men and wo-
men will be sponsored during the
spring semester, according to
The first of these contests and
the only one to be held this se-
mester will be an extemporaneous
speech contest. Preliminary try-
outs for the contest will take place
at 3:30 o'clock tomorrow afternoon
in the Alpha Nu room in Angell
Speeches are to be not more
than five minutes in length and I
are to be on any phase of one of
two subjects. The two subjects are1
Resolved that the dormitory sys-
tem,, including both men and wo-
men, should be adopted by the
University; and Resolved that the
success of the League of Nations
has justified the' entrance of the
United States.
To Hold Final Contest
The final contest will be held
next Tuesday evening as the fea-
ture of the annual program of the
joint meeting of the four literary
societies, Alpha Nu, Portia, Athena,
and Adelphi. Judges in both con-
tests will be members of Delta

Tryouts for the Little Princess,
the dance drama, which members
of Orchesis have chosen to work
on for presentation before the
academic classes in natural danc-
ing soon after Christmas vacation,
I will be held at the regular meet-
ing of the society at 7:15 o'clock
tonight in the Women's Athletic
This drama includes many prob-
lems which the members of the
society have been working on dur-
ing its Wednesday meetings such
as pantomine, and lyric problems.
All members of Orchesis are eligi-
ble for these try-outs, and while
the dance drama will be given pri-
marily for the students in natural
dancing and will not atempt to be
a finished product, it will be as per-
feet as the members can make it,
in the limited amount of time they
will have to spend on it.
Elective natural dancing classes,
for any women interested, have
now begun and are held from 10 to
12 o'clock every Saturday morning
in thecorrective room, downstairs
in Barbour gymnasium. Both be-
ginners and advanced students at-
tend these classes, but no pre-re-
quisite training is required. The
mere fact that the women who at-
tend are interested in learning,
problems in natural dancing, is
enough to allow them to become
a member of the class.
Individual attention will be given
on any problems the student is
particularly concerned with, and
there will be no standard course, or
required amount of work to be
covered, as there is in the academic
classes. No student is required to
stay the entire two hours either,
but she may come for just as long
as she cares to.
W. A. A. points will be given for
these classes on the same basis as
for other activities.
