The Oregon hoyn who stole the
thought and language of another with
which to win oratorical prizes, are
not the only enterprising orators in
tho country. .Maurice II, Hlch, of
Ilrown University, at Providence,
Rhode Island, Is accused of stealing
the oration with which ho won a val
uable medal. Traces of a winning
oration delivered at Hamilton Col
lege In 1901, have been discovered
his production. When the committee
gets through with Rich, It should
hunt up tho man from Hamilton and
find out from whom ho stole his ora
tion nnd so on indefinitely hack
through tlio history of college medals.
About one-half of the winning clo
ouenco of modern college orations
has been stolen and some bright stu
dent will have to originate something
new, or oratorical contestants will bo
forced out of business.
