One of the most significant of recent
movements in the Interest of prohibition
nas been the organization of the Inter-
vonegiate 1'rohibitlon Association. Tho
progress of the movement in some of
the states within the last few years has
Deen rapid and attended by definite and
positive results. Three years apo the
work was started in Kentucky and the
idea is taking fast hold and awakening
much enthusiasm mong the men and
women or the colleges. As yet, few
people outside of the college, have had
opportunity tobecomo familiar with the
uiuvement or 10 see us practical possi
bilities. We shall state briefly a few
things in general concerning the organi
zation and the work, it is doing. It is
strictly a student organization, tho pur
pose of which is to enlist tho interest of
the men and women of the colleges in a
fair and systematic study of tho funda
mentals involved in the question of the
Territory is organized by states, the
work in each state being carried on un
der tho direction of a State Executive
Committee. The national head, locat
ed at the city of Chicago, is kept in
close touch with the local organizations
through the traveling secretaries who
visit each league at least once a year
and make the arrangements for tho an
nual state conventions. To-day organ iza -
fions have been effected in twenty-three
different stales with local leagues in 170
colleges and universities aggregatinz a
total membership of possibly over -1,000.
Six schools have been organized in Ken
tucky, namely: Georgetown College,

Prohibition is promoted among the stu
dents; first, by tho organization of study
classes and tho use of such literature
and periodicals as are regularly furnish
ed each member of tho league; second,
by encouraging freo discussion among
the students by means of questions sug
gested for debate; and third, by arrang

which arc placed strong speakers, usual

One of tho most interesting features
or tho work is the arrangement for an
annual series of oratorical contests.
This idea is most effective in encourag
ing thorough study and investigation in
preparation of tho original orations tho
subject of which must always bo on
some phase of the liquor question.
These contests afford a wonderful op
portunity for the development of thoso
necessary qualifications for leadership.
The significene of such a movement can
not fail to bo seen. It is the educated
men, tho men who aro ablo to think,
whose interest we must enlist in tho
solution of this question. "As go the
colleges to day, so goes tho nation to
morrow." The matter of temperance
is a matter of education, and prohibition
will come as foon as tho people como to
see all the reasons why . intemperance is
bad. It is more than a moral or social
issue that is involved in the liquor pro
blem. Already it has become a political
and economic factor that forces itself to
be taken in to account, a problem which
will require educated statesmen to solve.
Our great danger is that too many of
our men aro going out from college
ignorant of tna tromendous significance
of this great four-fold: moral, social,
economic, and political, factor that is
stealthily insinuating its poisoning in
fluence in to every phase and organiza
tion of our national life. And hence
that apathetic attitude and hurtful in
differenbe on tho part of so many of
them who occupy positions of influence
to-day. Thoy have gone out into life
and, though they may have escaped
personally tho curse of tho drink habit,
it is hard to get them to tako a definite
stand on the matter of temperance sim
ply because it has never been brought to
bear upon their attention sufficiently to
arouso an interest in an honest investi
gation of tho question; or, having been
brought to their attention too late, they
find thomselvcs so inextricably involved
involved in its commercial or political
trammols that they will not bo con
vinced. What our college men neod to-day is
no less a knowledge of tho books taught
in college, but a moro intelligent grasp
of some of tho issues which they must
face when thoy go out from college
Most of tho college men will become
leaders and influential citizons in their
community. They need an opportunity
to sot thomselvcs right on thoso ques
tions while yet untrammolod and at
liberty to form tlioir opinions unbiased
by conditions affecting their trade or
station. If tho I. P. A is doing anything
to impose tho proper responsibility on
the minds of tho college men; if it is do
ing any thing to encourage this spirit of
broad minded and independent thinking
among them; if it is making them, net
prohibitionists, but moro intelligent
citizens, does it 'not deserve your en
couragementi The college men are
open minded and unbiased by prejudice.
"is it an opportunity for thoso who are
interested in the final eradication of the
liquor trafllo to strike a telling blow for
tho future by giving this movement
their support? Yes, wo noed your sup
port in a most liberal sort of way. Here
is how you can encourage us most:
"On the ICth of April the Annual
State Convention and Oratorical Contest
of tho Ky. I. P. A. will bo held at tho
Eastern KentucKy State Normal School
in Richmond. You will bo lending us
your greatest encouragement by giving
us your attendance at these meetings.
Of course, you will want to come out
and watch Richmond win the contest.
which, by tho way, means a handsome
prize as well as the honor of represent
ing Kentucky in the Grand Inter-State
Contest, which will be held in Syracuse,
N. Y., in the latter part of April. Watch
for specificate announcements which
will be made later.
