Photo shows the huge crowd, which heard the finest speakers of Los Angeles high schools compete in The Evening Herald's sixth annual extemporaneous oratorical contest at the Polytechnic high school auditorium last night. This audience was larger and more enthusiastic than any which has attended a similar event for years, listening with rapt attention at the addresses on various phases of aviation and cheering speakers at close. Photograph dated December 8, 1928.
