SIX CANDIDATES CHOSEN FOR FINALS OF FRENCH SPEAKING

Will Compete For Medal Sometime Late in May

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

As a result of trials held last night in Sever 36, six men were chosen for the finals of the annual declamation in French, known as the "Concours Oratoire pour la Medaille France-Amerique". Those selected were A. F. Archer '30. Joseph Barber '32, W. D. Carter '31. P. G. Livermore '32, M. P. Shaw '31, and F. M. Watkins '30.

Candidates spoke for five minutes on any subject pertaining to France and were judged by Professor R. L. Hawkins '03, Professor L. J. A. Mercier, and E. L. Raiche.

In 1918 the Comite France-Amerique of Paris established the prize in the form of a medal to be awarded to the successful contestant speaking in the finals "on some subject drawn from the history of French civilization". The finals will be held late in May.
