WILL CONTEST TONIGHT
Representatives of Eight Colleges
Will Strive for Oratorical
Honors at M. E.
The Inter-Collegiate Prohibition
Association of Oregon will hold its
annual oratorical contest at the
M. E. Church in this city this eve
ning at 8 o'clock. Eight colleges
will be represented: Albany, Cor
valhs, Newberg, Forest Grove, Mc
Minnville, Philomath, Monmouth
and Dallas. The orators who wiL
come from these colleges are men
who have won first honors in oratory
in their respective schools. It will
be the most extensive contest ever
held in Oregon, as there will be
more colleges represented than in
any previous contest, and the
orators who are to speak are men
who are especially strong, having
won the honor to represent their
schools after severe rivalry with
their fellow-students. For this
reason and because of the extensive
advertising done by the Dallas
students, people are expected to at
tend from at least ten other towns.
McMinnville will drive across the
country with a good-sized delega
tion; Philomath will be here with
close to a score, and Newberg has
promised to send a whole carload.
Other colleges will send delegations
of a dozen or more,
A conference lasting from 9
o'clock this morning until 4:30
o'clock this afternoon will be held
in the College Chapel, where the
various delegations will be present
to discuss matters relating to the

honors respectively, will go to Cor

recently, and a man from the
University of Washington and
another from Whitman College will
represent that state in the Corvallis
contest. Berkeley and Stanford

will find plenty of warm opposition
A similar inter-state contest wil
be held in Iowa for the middle
states, and one in Ohio for the
Eastern states, and next year a
great National contest will be held
in St. Louis during the Exposition,
when the winners from Oregon will
have opportunity to compete with
the winners from every state in the
Union where the college movement
has been established.

DALLAS, OR., April 27 (To
the Editor.) That the labor ques

question, and the one question that
overshadows all others from an
economic point of view, no one will
attempt to deny. The very founda

seemingly are rocking, whilecapital
and labor wrestle fiercely for the
mastery. Some say that war and
bloodshed are inevitable, but this

The authorities from Mr. Roose

dangers, strengthen the heart with Dr. Miles'
