5-Minute Speeches on Either Side of Russian Question Tonight.

Preliminary trials for the Pasteur Medal, founded in 1898, by Baron Pierre de Coubertin, and offered annually for the best speech in English upon some topic of contemporary French politics, will be held in Sever 11 at 8 o'clock, tonight under the supervision of the French Department. Both the trials and the final debate will be upon the same subject: "Resolved: That it would be to the best interest of France that Allied Military Intervention in Russia be discontinued." Five-minute speeches may be on either side of the question, and will be judged by Dr. R. L. Hawkins '03, E. L. Raiche and L. J. A. Mercier of the French Department. The final contest in which the speeches will be twelve minutes long will be held on the evening of Feb. 27.
