Men intending to compete for two of the University's oldest awards, the Bolyston and Lee Wade public speaking prizes, must register at Holden chapel before 5 o'clock on Monday. All upperclassmen in good standing are eligible for the competition.
The date for the final contest has been changed from April 6 to Wednesday, March 30. The preliminary contest, in which the ten finalists are chosen, will be held on Monday, March 14. The selected passages, which must be memorized, are usually in English, although both Latin and Greek selections are permitted and have won prizes in recent years; they should require about five to seven minutes to deliver.
The Lee Wade prize of $50 will be awarded to the winner of the contest. The first Boylston prize of the same amount will go to the next best speaker, and the other two $35 Boylston prizes will be given to the men who receive third and fourth places.
