ty. The account gives In brief the plan
which lie wishes to follow. So I
thought, perhaps It would be of Inter
est to Wallowa county to know how
we conducted our Declamatory Con-
IcM in Dade county, Mo.
At our August institute the teachers
organize by electing a president, vice
president and secretary to serve one
year. These officers appoint such
committees as they think advisable
or the arrangements of the contest
which is held on(hc22nd of Febru
ary of each year.
The county Is divided into as many
declamatory districts as there are
municipal townships In the county.
The teachers of these townships meet
separately and organize by electing a
president and a secretary. It. is tbo
duty of these officers to see that every
school in tbeir respective townships is
represented at a - township contest
which is held for the purpose of select
ing a representative for . tbe county
contest, which is held at any place the
contest comtnittoe may select These
contestants ny et and speak for a med
al. The boy making the;beHt bhowing

The city schools are barred from the
foreaoina contest. ,. But now these
champions meets a representative from
each of the city schools in final contest;
and speak for. tho Champion uoia
Medal which . a presented to our
county by the president of Washington
University. Tbe one who receives this
medal is ouly allowed to wear it one
