Washington, June Associated Press.) -The secondary school oratorical championship of the United States rests today upon the youthful brow of Don Tyler of Los Angeles. Speaking in the final contest of a nation-wide competition sponsored by large newspapers, with President Coolidge in the chair, he convinced Secretary Hughes and Justices VanDeventer, Sanford, Sutherland and Butler of the supreme court, sitting as judges, that hip gift was the highest of the seven best surviving local and sectional elimination trials. Miss Ruth Newburn of Washington, D. and John M.

Daliam, Ill, of Philadelphia, were awarded second and third honors. The prizes were $3,500 to Tyler: $1,000 to Miss Newburn and $500 to President Coolidge in accepting the place of honorary presiding officer made an address in which he cussed the constitution and various phases of its effects on American life. Robrt E. Lee Saner of Dallas, presdent of the Amerian Bar tion, introduced the speakers and presented the awards, PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS. The duty resting upon the present generation to establish among the coming generation the full conception of the obligation to reasonableness and to moderation was emphasized by President Coolidge in his address.

The President in a discussion of the constitution--the subject of the addresses delivered by seven high school boys and girls in the contest -declared for nan tonal oratorical honors- the American constitutional system had justified itself not only in the nation's history, but "in the fact that it has been accepted a8 the model uDon which so many later experiments in have been based." democratia republican institutions "Impressive as have -been the results our experiment, gratifying as have been the tributes which imitation has paid, we realize that our system is not yet perfect," he continued. forms of human organization must forever undergo the process of change, adaptation, evolution, to fit themselves to the changing needs of a society which can neyer remain stagnant. Civilization can not stand still, the institutions under which it develops can not remain unchanged. Change is inevitable and there must be intelligent capacity to direct that change in the right way. GREAT SERVICE.

"It we accept this postulate of the eternual mutability of our institutione, then we will be able realize how great service is that of the men and women who would train the youth of the nation to understanding of and to interest in these institutions of oure. There is no greater obligation upon the community than that of properly educatIng its youth, trAnIng its future citizens for the Juties which in their time they must assume.

DID MORE THAN ACHIEVE SUCCESS Robert J. McBryde's Tribute to Jefferson Davis at Monument Dedication. Fairview, June Associated. Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederacy, did not command success, he did more in deserving It, declared Robert J. McBryde of Louisville, speaking today at the birthplace of the departed leader before thousands gathered at the formal dedication of the Jefferson Davis monument to the state of Kentucky, The monument, 351 feet high, is the largest concrete obelisk in the world and has been years in constructing.

Mr. MeBryde told how the Jefferson Davis Home Association, came into being at a reunion of the Orphan Brigade at Glasgow, and how appropriations of Confederate rounded out by legislative and executive action of the state, had made the memorial possible. His audience was challenged to answer why the survivors of the Orphan Brigade, as Kentuckians and veterans of a "cause that had perished An 8.8 complete disaster as ever befell a pledged themselves- to the perpetuation of Jefferson Davis' memory. "Was It not because they knew that the true measure of success is character?" he asked, and that "judged by brain and heart and courage, Mr. Davis was worthy of their love and Joyalty? "Was it not because they knew that, though his cause had failed, the principle of government on which the Southern Confederacy was founded.

was one and the same with the principle which had governed the framers of the constitution, a principle never challenged until the question of abolition had entered? "Was It not because they could not forget some facts of history. that we of succeeding generation will do well to keep in memory? That when Mr. Davis became president of the Southern Confederacy, an actual, not a threatened state of war existedthat the people of the South were an agricultural people without training in without military equipment, neither without a factories stabilized for its currency manufacture: it, without. even an established form of government? 'That upon Mr. Davis fell the duty of creating and maintaining that government at one and the same time that he forged the instruments with which to wage a war against an enemy, whose strength outmassed the South as greatly as did the strength of Germany outmass the strength of Belgium in the late war?" After reviewing the Civil war, Mr.

McBryde took up the closing days of the Confederate president. "After the fall of the Confederacy. Mr. Davis was a manacled malefactor and WAS held prisoner by the North on a charge of treason. Even in the South, where the agony of disaster was supreme, there were many to blame him for failing to achieve the impossible.

The men of the Orphan Brigade were not of that number. To them, It Mr. Davie had not commanded success, he had done more -he had deserved it, but there was with these something more than the feeling of loyalty to the leader of their common cause. They were Kentuckians and Jefferson Davis was a Kentuckian of Kentuckians."
