Nether "Demosthenes," nor "S. S.," nor the CRIMSON has mentioned, or seemed to be aware of the fact that such an institution as the above mentioned exists between the colleges of six different western states, and that these different State associations are united into an Inter-state Oratorical Association. The latter has existed for ten years and has been productive of much good. Such an institution is needed even more in the East than in the West, where more attention is given to oratory in the regular college curriculum.
A meeting of those interested in this matter ought to be held to crystallize their ideas upon the subject and develope a plan to propose to other colleges.
