The contest of the Northern Oratorical League will be held in University Hall, on May i, the day before the base-ball game with Oberlin. Four orators are chosen thus far: J. P. Adams, of the Northwestern University, who will speak upon "Webster's Defense of the Constitution "; F. W. Gurney, of Oberlin College, whose subject is "King Philip in America", the burden of which is against the liquor traffic; Theo. Kronshage, of the University of Madispn, whose subject is, "Luther at Worms "; and A. C. Gormley, of the U. of M., who will speak ■ upon "Quo Warranto." The Oberlin Review says of Mr. Gormley, "He is strongly built but a little awkward, we understand. McLauchlan writes from Ann Arbor that he will be hard to beat. The contest will be held at his own college - a great advantage - and the Ann Arbor youth will doubtless 'root' for him in the approved U. of M. fashion."
