When more candidates than the required number from each class present themselves, the representatives are to be selected by competent judges at preliminary rehearsals.

The orations must be handed in by Monday, Feb. 15, in order that the judges may have ampie time to pass upon the thought and composition before the preliminaries of Feb. 26. The final public contest of the class representatives occurs March 18 in University Hall, for first and second honors and the testimoniáis of $75 and $0 respectively. Contestants should send in their names and subsequently their orations, typewritten, to the vice-president of the Oratorical Association, Mr. A.J. Ladd, No. 6 South Ingalls street. - U. of M. Daily.
