"The English Political Scene'
to be.-Discussed Tonight
by Langdon-Davies.
Young Englishman Has Figured
Prominently in British
Political Affairs.
John Langdon-Davies, author,
journalist and distinguished man of
affairs, will speak tonight at 8 o'-
clock in Hill auditorium on "Th e
English Political Scene,'" as the
fifth lecturer on the Oratorical as-
sociation program.
In England Mr. Langdon-Davies
has for many year been a popular
lecturer and in 1923 was a candi-
date for Parliament in the Epsom
division of Surrey. He has done
extensive lecturing in the United
States during the past three years,
his subjects embracing labor con-
ditions, scientific themes, feminism,
and intimate sketches of literary
and political people in England.
As an ex-candidate for Parlia-
ment, Mr. Langdon-Davies is per-
sonally acquainted with most of the
Labor Party Statesmen and will
discuss the present situation in En-
gland, British public opinion tow-
and America, war debts, peace, ar-
maments, the League and. the
World Court and other pertinent
and enlightening subjects.
Although only 31 years of age to-
night's speaker is said to be one of
the soundest, mst brilliant and
likeable of the younger Englishmen
to visit America. He is a familiar
contributor to the New Republic
and various other magazines and is
the author of "A Short History of
- Wonen" and "The New Age of
Faith." Since he quite closely re-
sembles John Barrymore Mr. Lang-
don-Davies has often been rcfei'r
to as "the Greek god."
Mr. Langdon-Davies held the Sir
Thomas White scholarship in mod-
ern history at Oxford, as well as
three-other scholarships and exhi-
bitions. For two years he was a
feature writer in the London office
of the Christian Science Monitor
and a constant contributor to the
New Statesman and the Westmin-
ster Gazette. Since September,
1923, when he was sent to Spain
as a correspondent for the London
Daily News, he has made his home
in Spain.
It is thought that toniglhlt3 lec-
ture will reveal some of the inside
facts concerning the approaching
naval conference, since Mr. Lang-
don-Davies is acquainted with Pr-
mnier Ramsay MacDonald and many
other delegates, and since he is well
, versed in every phase of British
Henry Moser of the speech de-
partment, business manager of the
Oratorical association, predicts a
heavy ticket sale for tonight's lec-
ture and believes that Mr. Lang-
,don-Davies' youthfulness will hold
a great appeal for a college audi-
nce. Single admission seats are
on sale at Slater's or at 3211 An-
gell hall today at one dollar each,
and will be sold at the box offlee be-
* ginning tonight at 7 o'clock.
