The article focuses on the gala celebration of the 20th anniversary celebrations of the periodical "National Review." The Gala has two parts, one in the afternoon, and one in the evening. Michael Oakeshott, the best living writer on political philosophy, will speak on the occasion. Oakeshott is an Englishman and a Cambridge man, with a most distinguished academic career. There will be speeches and star entertainment, the first joyous, the second surprising and amusing. During his professorship of political science at the London School of Economics he made a decisive impact on the political thinking of people.
