The Oratorical Contest
This has been a rather eventful year for the Kan Claire Normal in the )ratorical Contest. Although it is only the second year that we have been in the League, we were fortunate enough to have the state contest here. It is really the first year that we have taken part in the contest, as our contestant last year was snowbound at Hudson. and was unable to get to River 1'alls to deliver his oration. It was a great disappointment to us, as we were rather sure of a place. This year our orator. Lawrence Fish, secured fourth place 'The winner of this contest, Gladys Rorchers of Whitewater, will represent Wisconsin at the Interstate Contest which will be held at Macomb. Illinois.
Another event that went with the Oratorical Contest was the Kxtempore Speaking Contest. This is first year that it has been tried in connection with the State Contest, blit it will probably continue to be a part of the Oratorical Contest in years to come. Arthur Roberts of Superior secured first place; Kstella Stone of Milwaukee, second: Henry Wegner of I'latteville, third; and Tilden Moc of Stevens Point, fourth, 'flu winner of this contest will go to Macomb. Illinois, where he will take part in the Interstate F.x-tempore Speaking Contest.
All of the nine different Normals sent delegates and all of the orators except those from La ( rosso and ( shkosh delivered their orations. In addition to a large number of rooters. Superior sent an orchestra and the Girls’ Glee Club. La Crosse, an orchestra, and Milwaukee a twenty-one piece band.
Thursday evening a party was given in the gymnasium for the delegates of the visiting schools who had already arrived. A general good time was had and much cheering and singing of school songs were in evidence. Friday morning we were entertained with musical selections by the Superior and La Crosse orchestras and the Milwaukee band : during tin afternoon the gym was the scene of dancing, the music being furnished by the musical organizations of the visiting schools.

Sept. J-| the V. . C. A. entertained the faculty and students of the scIi«m I at a “get acquainted party.” I he gvin was prettily decorated v ith aulnmn leaves gathered from the Drive. The most striking features of some of the students were made known, especially their weight and the length of their grins. As everyone knew everyone else before the party was over, the purpose of the party was accomplished.
A Halloween costume party was held in the gymnasium Oct. 31st. The gym was fittingly decorated with cornstalks, broomsticks and jack-o-lantcrns. There were costumes of every description ; sheeted ghosts, clowns, and witches. Every nation, every period of history, and every class of society were represented. Before anyone cotdd enter the gym lie was first conducted through Hades. f course the journey was only through the furnace room; Imt going through such a dark, mysterious place on such a dark mysterious night made one feel scary enough to be in the real Hades. Some marvelous feats were performed during the course of the evening: Lydia endeavored to show how a boat should he
rowed. My rtle I;lattner ran a race with herself, and Lawrence Fish sang a song without words.
I lie Senior Class president informed the Junior Class president that it was "up” to the Juniors to do something to entertain the Seniors: so the Juniors gave a dancing party in the gym. As it was a cold night, some of the girls ate supper at school in order to he right there when the party commenced. After supper several of them made use of the music before the musicians came, and others made use of the cot in the rest room. Dancing commenced at half-past eight and continued till eleven. Everyone enjoyed himself as usual.
THE POST-EXAM PARTY.
Jan. 31st a post examination party was given to celebrate the fact that the mid-year finals were over. This party we hope to make an annual event. With the strenuous mental strains of the week over, everyone felt an immense burden ofi‘ his shoulders and just in the right mood to enjoy the party. Stevens Point played basketball in Eau Claire that evening, and after the game the team was invited to the party. The presence of a few extra men added very much to the general fun.
