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. PATRONESS Miss Ida G.

Steimle 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 means possible? 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 next year. . f":w't9Z 4-'Aff'-4 .. . . f,-TV" "-saw. , viz 1,15 :V iq 33 n .Q ','a,y5Qj.. 1-'ff 198

Benner, state delegate, and Myraum Burket, reporter. 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. ...afrzahaz fyffffgs.. ., . . . 6-if .2-f"E ,, xiii, rwffz. . .,.ffi.i"e:f'.yWfz2-. yi: W ff,-'-74224-1:2Miz'-. , ' ::1?11w"f' fi? ie!"-1'-"FZ.Zfri5 M1-1:2654 ?2:-.cttw """'-'f1'f 'ff-'?:':?:::,'.'.ZCf,: 130
