We congratulate the men who were selected last evening to represent Harvard in the coming debate with Princeton. They have been chosen to a position of much honor, but of honor tempered with a heavy responsibility. It is for them to maintain unbroken Harvard's list of victories in debate, and they are not likely to find this an easy task. At Yale, interest in debating has only of late years seen a revival; but at Princeton this is not the case. Ever since the debating league between Harvard and Yale was started. Princeton has been eager to become a member of it. Her two debating societies have been constantly active and are now heartily glad of the chance to enter into competition with Harvard. Harvard's representatives will meet men skilled in debate by long practice like their own. If they win, their victory will be cause for just pride to the whole University. We wish them the greatest possible success.
