Clifford E. Smith represented the University of Kentucky, speaking on "The Shantung Question." Wllllm H. Bobbitt, University of North Carolina, came second in the contest, and George Goetz, Johns Hopkins University, finished third. Their subjects were respectfully, "The Present Crisis in American Democracy," and 'Radicalism and Free Speech." Others who competed were: Dewey Wnltnell, Vanderbllt University, "Our Unloyal People"; Meyer Lovenstein, University of Virginia, "The Alternative to Bolshevism"; "Radicalism and Free Speech"; William McCall, Uni- verslty of Alabama, "The College Man's Opportunities." Smith first covered himself with glory when he won the State championship last Monday night over rep- resentatives from five other Kentucky colleges. He will next represent the State in a contest with the winners of the contests in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin to be held April 7. At a later date he will be the Kentucky representative in a contest with North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and Missouri. The contest was delayed because of the late arrival of one of the contestants and was not over until after midnight. The judges who rendered the decision were Professor B. C. Van Wye, University of Cincinnati; Professor H. S. Woodward, Western Reserve University, Cleveland, and Professor C. H. Thurber, Purdue University.

This contest, which is conducted each year by tho Strollers, has always created interest and many students have shown their interest by submitting designs. Besides the natural desire of the s students to aid all University there is the added inducement in this contest of two of the best seats in the Opera House to the artist who submits the best design. It is to be remembered that these drawings must be in the hands of the committee before the end of next week and those who are contemplating entering a design should lose no time in putting it into shape. Information regarding the contest can be obtained from Emery Frazie: or any member of the cast of "The Climbers." The committee, composed of Professor Enoch Grehan, Emery Frazler and Horndon Evans, will examine the drawings and announce the winner at the close of the contest. The management reserves the right to keep all drawings submitted. Plans for the sale of seats are being made and it 4s probable that all details for the opening will be made 'vithin the next few days. The four boxes at the Opera House were engaged by different organizations of tho University last semester, but there will be- plenty of available seats. The management is expecting every seat to be sold a short time after the tickets are issued, as Stroller productions are growing In popularity with each year. The members of the cast are working night and day, rounding the play into shape and it can be safely said from the display of talent that this will be one of the best amateur performances seen here in years. organf-nation- - CENTER COLLEGE MM SPEAKS AT y.

Mrs. F. L. McVey will speak on the purpose and value of having such an organization in the University. Among the important business matters to be brought up will be the adoption of a constitution and the appointmnt of a nominating com mittee to select the candidates for offices in the League. The initial meeting of this organiza tion was held several weeks ago, in a mass meeting of all the women students of the University, following the acceptance of a petition which was submitted to the faculty, stating the fact that the women of the University felt the need or an organization of this kind, which would unify the body of women students by bringing together the town girls and those living in the dormitories. One of the purposes of the League, as suggested at that meeting, was to bring to the University certain notable experts on vocations for women. The work of organization was begun at that time, by the appointment of a committee, consisting of Mary Van Meter and Louise Will, who with cne other member to be selected by Ihom, .jvere to write a constitution to be submitted to the body of women students at the next meeting. It Js hoped that officers may be elected at an early date, in order that the work of the League may be well under way before the end of this school year. Mrs. McVey, who is to be the speaker at this meeting, has obtained by experience a thorough knowledge of the work and aims of Woman's Leagues. Every woman student of the University is urged to be present Monday morning, at this probably meeting of the League. MEN TO HAVE OFFER OF FUND EX-SERVI- Special Courses In Any School.
