We congratulate the Freshman speakers most heartily upon their victory over Yale in the debate last evening. As we said in a former editorial, this victory will mean more to the class of '99 than any other it may win in its four years at college. It has not only done a great deal to make the Freshman debating Club a fixed institution, but it has also given an impetus to debating interests in the University that will help to win us 'Varsity debates in years to come. The Harvard speakers last evening showed an excellence of form that picks them out as future 'Varsity material. The University has reason to be proud of the record that its Freshman class has made this year.
