May 22, the Farmville Negro Band
was awarded fisst place.

of the state was present and parti
cipated. There was music galore and
the thousands of people who throng
ed the streets and band stand show
ed the interest that had been taken
in the occasion.
However, the most impressive fea
ture of the eritire session was the
oratorical contest staged by the edu
cational department. There were 12
contestants representing every part
of the state, all highly trained in the
modern arts of persuasion and tech
nique of the stage. These were con
