IaIs i t I"' a prkoinient fature or I hlillgh school w ork In the state. In addition to these prises, offered hy the university, there are a number of others offered through the state school to the different winners. TWvo sets of hooks were given to each mem her of the wlinning Forsyth team. hine }by the late Judge Knowles and one by Ht. T. Wilkinson. A gold medal is anw:rded each year to the best inal vidual debater in the final series by Senator Joseph M. Dixon. This prise was won this year by James Tooney of Powell county, whose splendid work was a nsurprise to all who heard it. To him also goes a scholarship to he given cn his entrance to the university. A scholarship is also glv en to some one delater from any one of the four district champion teams- this year Forsvth, Powell, Plathead and (lallatln-who is In his senior year and Intend to enter the universi tv In the fall. The choice is left to the discretion of the p-'sident of the university. The decision has not Yet been made this year. * At the time sf the debet- the result of another unlversity contest Is a/* nounced. This Is the contest for the Carter essay medal, offered by foramer Benator Carter. The contest is lim ited to high school seniors and was won this year by Miss Helen Courtney of Miles City. The subject for this year was "My Favorite Reading." With. the Carter medal goes to the winner of this contest the Mulroney acholar ship, to be paid upon the entrance of the winner to the university. Declamatory Contest. The third educational feature of the Interscholastic meet Is the sork in declamation. Each year one repre sentative from each high school is al lowed to take part in one of the two dectlamatory contests; one open to the boys, the other to the girls. Gold. etl ver and bronze medals of the same kind as those offered to the winners of the athletic events are given to the winners of first, second and third places in each contest. The interest taken In these contests is unusual and the schools winning prizes are as 'en thusiastic over the outcome, atnosft as over the winning of the athletic Whem lionship. LAst week Miss l!ipan 1loore of Butte won the contest for girls, and enry Warner of Falls took first place among the bbvs. Miss Mao Brook of Glasgow won ie' ,nd place and Miss Ruth Putildd of Stevensville third In the girls' contest, while Eugene Angevine of Missoutla took second and Francis Hit.on'r of Helena, third, among the boys. Mieh of the speakers was a credit to- his school and the two contests were sln teresting throughout. The whole meet this year was full etf changes and improvements and in the handling as well as in the fact that it was attended by more centes". ants than have ever comneted before, was better than ever. This year- all of the visitors were housed and fed on the university campus. The large, well-ventilated, steam-heated class rooms were stripped of their furniture and filled with comfortable cots. The hnbos slept there while the girls anl chaperones were lodged in Craig hall. Meals were served for all in the dorm Itorv and the whole scheme was han died systematically and without trou ble. Better All Around. The different events were run off this year with much more ease than ever before. Despite the fact that the number of contestants was much larg er than ever before, the meet went more snmoothly and was of greater In terest to the spectators. Improvement was to be found every where. tillt the great change for the better was found In the crowning fee ture of the meet, the final Jolly-up and awardling of medals. Instead of hold iig the medal award Indoors, as has been the custom in the past, the nrlsel -w were distributed on Montana field, the scene of the viotorles which the pritm. stood for. A platform was erected oh the track in front of the bleachers and arc lights were placed about the stands and above the stage. There w:in plenty of room for all, there was ample chance for the heartiest p., cheering, and the glaring eleatli liiis and the otutdoor air gave the exercises a more triumphant e1%.`` mesphere.
