S STATE CONTEST
REPRESENTATIVE OF STATE U.
CARRIES OFF HONORS IN ORA
TORICAL CONtEST AT GRAND
F$RK8—WESLEY COLLEGE SEC
Tiii Eleventh annual oratorical con
test (Of the state was held last evening
in the Metropolitan theatre In Grand
Forks. J. F. T. O'Connor of the state
university, won first, and Don S. Ford
of Wesley college, was a. very close
The theatre was filled and the aud
ience was more than appreciative.
Probably the excellent delivery of the
contestants was due, in a measure, to
this. At any rate it was a thing which
the .speakers felt and were grateful
for. The music of the university band
just preceding the hour for the con
test and the overture f»layed so well
by the superb orchestra of the univer
sity, put all who were present in that
mood in which they are best fitted to
i listen to orations.
Mr. C. O. Lee, president of the state
league. In his very happy introductory
remarks, told of the plans and the
purpose of the organization of which
he was the head. He bade the visitors
welcome to GUtjwd Forks, and to the
university and then, without further
preliminaries, Introduced the first
speaker, Mr. O'Connor, of the state
To characterize each oration in de
tail would be an ungrateful task. It
could not hope to give any sort o,f ade
quate notion of the orations, much less
their form and delivery. One thing,
however, 6'aa noticeable. All of tho
speakers preached the great lesson of
civic duty. They all held up as the
great ideal what Mr. Dynes well term
ed "the great social consciousness."
Mr. Garrett brought out the fact that
this great saving element was still a
vital force in our political life Mr.
O'Connor elaborated this in his strik
ing oration, and held to the thesis that
the perils which result from our bury
ing this social conscience—for it may
be called such also—is but "a passing
peril and what, indeed, is true Amer
ican liberty, but liberty tempered with
a consciousness of what is for the wel
fare of society? Mr. Don Ford, in an
oration of very high merit, after a
magnificent account of the work of
the pioneers of Dakota, pointed out,' in
equally strong and flowing words, the
work, that lies before the Dakotans of
The contest, if la safe to say, is the
best that has ever laeen held In North
Dakota. In point of attendance, enr
thusiasm, sustained merit of orations,
it ranks first among all the eleven
state oratorical contests. The people
of Grand Forks who attended and
those who came In from'outslde points
will not*soo'n forget it. But if it was
clearly an excellent contest, it was no
less decisively won. There could be no
mistake as to who had won first and
second places. Until the judges' de
cision was given, however, it was a
very close race between O'Connor and
Mr. Ford for first honors, 'the pro
