HE Normal Dramatic Club was organized January 29, 1917, with Bliss
Ida Hintz as patroness. The object of this organization is to study the
great modern dramas and dramatists, and to give from time to time some of
the standard plays. March Tth thc Club, under the auspices of the Ladies' Lit-
erary Society presented Yeatls "The Hour Glass," and altho this was the first
production, the result was very gratifying. Considerable time has been given
to the study of Lord Dunsany and his very popular plays.
It is one of the aims of the society to encourage attendance at the Detroit
theaters when stars are playing in some high class production, and several
interesting accounts have been given of such plays by members of the Club.
It is hoped that next year more local productions may be effected since the
Club will be prepared to take up its work early in the fall.

OR several years the need for some organization for bringing the men of
the College together had been felt, so in October, 1914, the BIen's Union
was established, in order 'sto promote a spirit of unity among t.he men of the
institution, and the welfare of the Michigan State Normal College, by all
At the opening of school last fall, a meeting of the Board of Directors of
the Men's Union was held and plans were made for the distribution of the pins.
The men responded so eagerly that it was only a matter of three or four days
before all of the men had paid their fee and were recognized as members.
The custom of giving several informal parties was made almost impossible
by the epidemic of smallpox which swept this section of the state. However,
one party was given earlier in tl1e season with such success that a student-
directory was put out under the auspices of the Union. It was thru this
organization that the High School basket ball tournament was brought to
Ypsilanti. The visiting teams were so well treated and the tournament was
such a success that this year not enough rooms could be found to provide for
the teams and so the offices of the Gym. were turned into a veritable dormitory.
The big event of the year was the banquet given to the visiting high school
teams. Entertainment was given by the College band, Glee Club, quartet,
several fine toasts and a solo by Mr. Lindegren.
With the great increase in the number of men this year over that of last
year, we have no reason to doubt that it will be the greatest year of the Union

The Oratorical Association
HE Oratorical Association for 1916-1917 has been under the guidance of the following
elective officers: I.ouis Grettenberger, presidentg Orlo Robinson, vice-president, Rose
Reynolds, secretary, Leonard Juhl, treasurerg Claude I.. Benner, state delegate, and Myraum
The events of the spring term of 1915-1916 are important. The animal Interpretative
Reading Contest held in April, was won by Clarissa E. Felt '16, who was awarded a ten-
dollar gold piece. The third annual Junior Public Speaking Contest, which occurred in June,
was won by J. Palmer I.indow '17, second place going to Edwin Smith '17. The prizes were
ten dollars and five dollars. The junior team, consisting of James TV. 1Villiamson, Denis J.
Gleason and Claude I.. Benner, which debated Adrian College on May 12th, brought back a
3-0 decision in their favor, tlms closing the year with four victories out of a possible six.
The fourth awarding of college honors, which has come to be an animal college event, was held
before general assembly on June 11th. Here with enthusiasm and speeches, gold medals were
presented to the honor orators and debaters, and N's and certificates to the honor athletes.
The outstanding event of the spring term, however, was the brilliant work of Harry D.
Hubbard '16, who, in March, won the state peace contest. On May Sth he spoke in the inter-
state contest at the James Blillikin University of Decatur, Illinois, and in contest with the
chosen representatives of the states of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio, was
accorded first place by the judges and the testimonial of sixty dollars in money. This signal
honor made him the chosen representative of the central group of states, in the national contest
held before the Lake Mohonk Conference on International Arbitration. On his return the
student body turned out en masse and, placing him and Professor McKay in a carriage gaily
decorated for the occasion, and drawn by a bunch of loyal rooters, proceeded to Pease Audi-
torium for speeches, and then forming in line, paraded the principal streets of the city shout-
ing and singing their praises of the Normal victor. It was an event long to be remembered.
In a splendid contest at Lake Mohonk, New York, on May 1Sth, he was awarded third place
and eighty dollars in money.
The present year's activities have been marked by the usual interest and growth. The
Lincoln and Webster clubs for the men, and the Vl'odeso club for women, held their customary
programs of work. The return women's debate with Albion College, held on January 12th,
drew out a large audience and though closely contested, resulted in a victory for Albion. The
third annual debate with Ferris Institute occurred on February 9th and resulted in unanimous
decisions for the Normal College in both contests. For the first time an out-of-the-state debate
was held this year with the Indiana State Normal School on April 13th. The contests in
both cities were close and keen, but resulted in :2-1 decisions for Indiana. iVe look forward
with pleasure to meeting them next year. ,
In oratory the Normal representatives made a creditable record. They won no first places
and yet ranked well, considering that their competitors all came from four-year colleges.
Oakley C. Johnson '17, with his oration, "The Myth of Democracy," and Ivaleen F. Hough '17,
who spoke upon "The Pioneer Spirit," participated in the state contest at Hope College,
March Qnd. Among eight contestants, Mr. Johnson received fifth place and Miss Hough
third place. The Normal College entertained the state peace contest March 16th, when our
orator, J. Clarence Ponton, with a strong speech upon "A Militant Peace," made an excellent
showing and received fourth place.
A youthful Dramatic Club under the guidance of Miss Hintz of the Expression Depart-
ment, made its appearance in February and has given a number of artistic presentations.
The fifth annual Interpretative Reading' Contest held this year in March, and also under her
guidance, was eminently successful. There were thirty-six entrants in the preliminaries and
the annual contest far excelled its predecessors. Hester E. McKin1 '17, received first place
and ten dollars in gold, second place and five dollars in gold going to Sharlot I. MacDonald '17.
The association activities hold a large place in the life of the College and bid fair to keep
pace with the growing demands in the field of public speaking.
