a genuine personality.
Not only on the stage but fol
lowing the performance, was this

few minutes, not alone with her,
but in the presence of a group of
friends and it was here that she
expressed her feeling for youth
and her appreciation of the recep

”It pleases me more than I can
tell you,” she said, “to know that
my work is really enjoyed. When
one has spent a life-time in per
fecting an art, it is good to know
that it has been worth while.”

and in addition composed many of

WORK TO BE STARTED
Next Few Weeks Will be
Devoted to Delivery
\\ ith the time set for various
oratorical contests coming on
apace, H. E. Rosson, of the public
speaking department, is desirous of
having all persons who expect to
go out for the Peace, State Old Line
or Failing-Beeknian contests begin
working on the drafts of their
speeches right away, so that the
last weeks before the events can
be devoted chiefly to delivery.
Anyone who intends to compete in
any of the oratorical meets this
j year should, in the opinion of Mr.
Rosson, have such a draft made
j very soon.
The State Old Line is the first
| contest scheduled. It will take
! place at McMinnville,- March 14.
Other schools participating will be:
Willamette, Pacific college, Pacific
j university, Linfield, O. A. C., and
: Albany. The prize is a bronze
statuette of President Lincoln. Try
outs for this event will be a week
from this coming Saturday, Febru
ary 9, in 4 illard hall. Contestants
for this should turn in the first
draft of their speeches sometime
during the present , week. Final
speeches will be 1,500 words in
Aspirants for the state peace
award will meet for tryouts Sat
urday, March 1. The state prizes
are $75 for the winning oration
and $50 for the second best. In
addition, the recent $100 Jewett
donation will make it possible to
offer to the winner of the campus
tryout a first prize of $20 and a
second prize of $10. The first draft j
of the peace oration will be due
The Failing Beekman oratorical
contest, which is open only to
seniors, is always held the Friday
before commencement. Even though
that date is a long way off, Mr.
Rosson is anxious to have potential
contestants see him very soon, that
thb primary work can be over with
before the rush of spring activities
starts. He points out that with
four months to work in, a little
done each week of February and
March would be the means of get
ting the orations in shape, and then
the polishing and perfection of de
livery could be done in the last two
months, making an even distribu
tion of the time and work, and
preventing a last-minute rush. 1
OVER 2000 PAY FEES
Check on Number of Students;
Registered Not Completed
Two thousand fifty-nine students
had paid their fees when the cash- i
er’s windows closed at the busi
less office yesterday. This is an j
ncrease of sixteen over the num- j
| ber recorded at the close of busi
' ness Saturday. There were twi
thousand forty-three at that time
Five of these sixteen had to paj
the late fee of three dollars, tli<
other eleven having sent their fees
l in by mail.
The business office is unable tc
give out any definite informatior
as to the number who have failed
to pay although there are many fee
cards still left in the boxes. This
state is due to the fact that the
check on the number of students
who are registered for this term is
not yet complete. This will not
be finished for at least a week
more. It is expected, though, that
there are quite a large number
who have not paid their fees.
