Richard G. Langdon '58 and Royall Tyler '57 won the two $35 first prizes in the Boylston speaking contest last night. Langdon delivered the "Iron Curtain" speech given by Winston Churchill at Fulton, Missouri in 1946, and Tyler spoke a part from "Oedipus at Colonus" in Greek.

The three second prizes of $25 were won by William Bassetti '59, Duane J. Murner '58 and John E. Trent '57. The first two gave excerpts from "Huckleberry Finn" and "Bleak House" by Dickens. Trent delivered the Nobel Prize Acceptance speech of William Faulkner.

The ten oraters last night were chosen from 32 original applicants. The Boylston Contest has been held consecutively since 1817, except for two years during World War II.
