"Dollar Day" MONDAY APRIL 30 0 g AT . . , 1 Lord & Gage I ' See Today's Papers cisions should be "rendered. Harold R. Walley, '17, Philo, opened the oratorical contest, taking as his subject, "The Prisoner at the Bar." The theme , was an indictment of John Barleycorn. ; . - A: - , Davd Kelsky, 'IS. Zelo, spoke on "Democracy After the War." The speaker predicted that the entrance of ' America into ' the : worldi war would result in the "ipverthrow; of monarchial despotism. V The declamation contest was opened by Karl Blankenbilier, '17, Zelo. His subject was, "The Unknown Speaker.". It referred to a prompting voice - personified which echoed the sentiments .of the American Constitution. . - i Robert H. Hartz chose as his topic, , "Cataline's Defiance." An excerpt from Cataline's reply to Cicero in the Roman senate. y Affirmative Brief The outline of philo for the affirmative in the debate was as follows: Warren . M. Sworer, '17: Present labor and capital conditions demand a remedy since strikes are increasing in ; number, frequency, and seriousness while the general public suffers. Present methods ol voluntary arbitration are a failure. Arthur Leinbach, 18: Compulsion is necessary, since it does not destroy' personal i liberty and will eliminate present - friction by removing the cause of dispute. ... 'Edward T.". Stein, ' '11: " - Compulsory settlement is practicable in application because favored by the public. Decrees ' of U. S. Courts can be enforced and it has all the qualifications which go to make a law practicable in application. . Therefore compulsory settlement is next logical step. Thomas J, , Reilly, '18, was alternate for the affirmative side. Negatives' Argument Milton Lichtenwalner, '17, first negative speaker, declared that compulsory settlement is unnecessary because the change should come from within ; strikes are relatively decreasing and there are better and more tangible methods, namely the Colorado and collective bargain plans. . i - And Now, Mrs. Rinehart Mart Roberts Rineharts new serial.

Frank Wagner, '17: Compulsory settlement is impracticable because there is no law that will compel a man to labor against his will. It haa failed in New Zealand, Australia, and denounced in England. The briefs on both sides were strongly amplified. The rebuttal brought out excellent points to sustain their arguments and were able on both sides. Frederick Christman, '17, was alternate for the negatives. The judges of debate were: Rev. Wm. F. Klein, - J. H. Jacobs, Esq., Jos. W. Essick. - Judges of orations. and declamations: Rev. Henry I.

The British artillery, which, in the second week of the battle of Arras used up more shells than ever had been used in one action in the history of modern warfare, continues its deadly - and destructive work. The . French guns also are active, while the German artillery answer at various points. Apparently this is the lull before the next great clash In northern France. I General Vauder, In his progress tip the Tigris, now is before the Jebel Hamrin Hills, between the Tigris and Diala, where "the Turks have entrenched after retreating - from Samara. Russian forces are on the other side of the Bills and at the southern tip, the town of Kizil Rabat is occupied jointly by British and Russian troops. British .artillery continues to bombard ""Bulgarian positions southwest of Lake Dolran, Macedonia, ' while no activity of moment is reported from the eastern and Austro - Italian fronts.

Laugh When People Step On Your Feet Try this yourself then It along to others. It worksl pass Ouch ! ? 1 ? ! 1 This kind of rough talk will be heard less here in town if people troubled with corns will follow the simple advice of this Cincinnati authority, who claims that a few drops of a drug called freezone when applied to a tender, aching corn stops soreness at onoe, and soon the corn dries up and lifts right cut without pain. . He says freezone is an ether compound which dries immediately and never inflames or even irritates the surrounding tissue od skin. A quarter of an ounce of freezone will cost very little at any drug store, but is sufficient to , remove every hard or soft corn or callus from one's feet Millions of American women will welcome this announcement since the inauguration ot the high heels. - dv, and 9; - maw i l J We have been so used to being careful of our customers' welfare that we cannot bring ourselves to do otherwise.
