Orato .1 Contest.
We take tile 'ollowing from the
Chester Lantern in reference to the
intercollegiate oratorical contest on
April 19th. Mr.. Wicker represented
Newberry college in that contest and
it will be seen that he was well up
among the leaders:
"We believe that a vote of the au-,
dience would have made the same
award, though many would have given
Hickson the first place and Morrison
the second, while others would have
given one of the medals to Wicker,
taking no notice of a few moments hesi
tation at one time on account of a little
suip of memory. Hie had a capital
speech and it is doubtful-being a mat
ter of taste--whether his delivery was
inferior to that of any of tihe others.
