Two Young Men of the City Win First and Second Places in Oratorical Contest in Mitchell. Young Lady Wins Diploma. You may al-vays rest assured that wherever any Canton boys are attend ing college the people will soon learn that there Is a place called Canton when It comes to a contest of any sort. Friday's Republican says of two of our young men who are students at the Dakota Wesley an University In that city: VV Ith a very forceful and eloquent appeal for men with ability for lead ership, Frank B. Leffert, of Canton, wou the "old line" oratorical contest at the Methodist church last evening, receiving the unanimous decision of the judges. "The twentieth century" said Mr. Leffert, "calls for men of ideals, of vision, action, courage, personality, men who are willing to give them selves to service, not self." The ap peal for leaders in this century was presented with a delivery of remark able force and clearness. Mr. Leffert possesses an excellent voice and easy command of the platform. Second place in the contest was won by Lloyd Rising, of Canton, with an oration entitled. "The Dignity of Labor." Clothed in excellent English and driven home by telling climaxes, this appeal for respect for labor and the work logman, came a close second in the marking of the judges. Mr. Rettert, the winner of this con test will represent the school In the state oratorical contest February 18, in Mitchell. Miss Genevive Hicks last week won a diploma given by the Coder wood Typewriter Co., in a competive test with other students, winning five or six minutes ahead of the other con testants.

Former Canton Physician is Injur ed in Passenger Wreck at Gaza, Iowa. A LEADER reporter met Dr. Chas. W. Morrison of Grand Junction, Iowa, at the depot Tuesday while on his way to Sioux City and found he had sustained a fracture of two ribs and a deep gash in his forehead Monday morning when a passenger train on which he was riding left the rails and landed 30 feet from the track, a mile north of Gaza. It Is thought the in tense cold caused the rails to spread. Our former townsman was the only physician on the train and set to wurK at once relieving the sufferings of the 25 or more passengers who bad sustained cuts and broken bones and had the work well in hand before a relief train from Cherokee arrived. The Doctor had expected to stop off here to call on his many friends but after being injured he thought it best to go on to Sioux City and then home. We hope he is more fortunate the next time he starts for Canton. All-of-a-Sudden Peggy. The ten members of the public speaking department of our high school scored a decided success last Friday night when they gave their play at the Lyric to a well filled house The cast was as published last week with one exception, Merle Tuve who was to have had a double part was sick and unable to be present and Al bert Jennings filled his place with credit to himself. Each and every one did well ani the success of the even ing was In a large measure due to Miss Johns who has been untiring in her efforts in this department of our high school and from the many words of commendatlon we have heard her work is greatly appreciated both by the students and the school patrons. We hope to see another play by this same department before the school year en ts Traffic was heavy over the Milwau kee road Tuesday as a wreck that dumped 12 cars of cattle into the dlich near Scotland caused a blockade and all trains on the Running Water branch were sent through Canton.

D. Finishes Ahead of Class. Loren F. Parmley, son of J. W. Parmley of Ipswich, has been elected editor of the Volante, the weekly newspaper of the University of South Dakota, to succeed Herbert B. Ru dolph of Canton, who will finish his course at the University this month and leave for the University of Chi cago to study law. The new editor's father was formerly editor of the Ips wich Tribune. The retiring editor of the Volante has left an impression on the Volante. He has made It a live, snappy sheet, full of news and very readable. The students will greatly miss him when be leaves for he is universally popular. The Dakota Republican commented last week editorially as follows: Herbert B. Rudolph, who up to the present time in the school year has been editor of The Volante, the stu dent weekly at the State University resigned the position last week, and we understand, will leave soon for Chicago. Of his plans for the future we are not Informed, but whatever his undertakings we can but wish for him the beat of success. As printers of the college paper, our relations with him have been mach enjoyed After reading the above Item we learned that Herbert has applied himself so diligently to his studies In the law department of the State Uni versity that he has already completed the course of study that the class will finish in June and will leave for Chi cago University Feb. 6th, to be there In time to continue more advanced studies in the second semester which will open the 8th.

The visitors made most of the points in the first half but when the "Augle" boys changed to the basket In front of an entire bleacher full of fair co-eds they took a brace in the second half and run up quite a string of field baskets. Helgeson received a jab in the eye the second half and was re placed by Rasmussen who gave the Normals a scare the way he went af ter the ball. The game ended in a score of 31 to 17 In favor of 'the visit ors. There was such a large atten dance that It interferred somewhat with the playing space.
