The United States always and everywhere has heen the defender of oppressed peoples and it is our own nation, the great republic of the West, to which the struggling republic of the Far East is looking for action and for continuance of that policy which will preserve for her the possibilities of a great future," was the concluding paragraph in the speech that won first place for the University in the oratorical contest held here Monday in chapel, as presented by .Clifford E. Smith, a freshman in the College of Law. ' Smith will now represent the University against winners of state contests in Ohio, Indiana, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois and Michigan, to be held in Wisconsin April 2. The decision was rendered by men from other states who were entirely neutral as to contestants, Professor H. S. Woodward, Western Reserve University; Professor iC. H. Thurper, Purdue University, and Professor B. ,C. Van Wye, University of Cincinnati. The decision in favor of Kentucky shows that a new era in the art of oratory is being recognized, for Mr. Smith's oration was one that appealed to the audience thru logical reasoning and not alone by appealing to the emotions thru "flowery English." It was not however a easy matter to decido acordlng to statements mado by the judges, for the Kentucky Colleges were ably represente dby gifted 4 orators. Mr. C. MdCoy Franklin, representative of Berea College, who came second, spoke on "Americanizing Amorlca by Education of Labor." Tho theme of his speech was the power of Christian education. Mr. Frank L.

The Centre aggregation has the better claim to the State championship in basketball, since it defeated the Wildcats in Danville February 14. Should Kentucky defeat Centre Saturday night, however, the two outfits would be tied for Stute honors. The Wildcats are now in better condition to handle the Centre outfit than when they were defeated 44 to 15, and it is generally thought that the game will be a close one, and that probably a surprise or two will be sprung on the visitors. Because of the recent illness of Everett, Coach Buchhelt had intended starting the game Saturday night with Wilhelm in the center position, but the latter sustained a broken nose In practice Wednesday, so it is highly probable that Everett will be back at center with the remainder of the reg- Secretary Owens and four delegates, George Gregory, Bob Davis, Robert Raible and George Baumgarten attended the annual Kentucky State Student Conference of the Y.
