An encouraging activity in debating is shown in the coming competitive debate between the Forum and the Columbia Debating Union, but there is danger that the affair be mistaken for an intercollegiate contest between Harvard and Columbia. The Columbia Union, which is the only debating organization of importance at that university, will practically represent its entire debating strength; and it will be strange if the speakers for the Forum are not mentioned to a greater or less extent as representatives of Harvard. If the Forum wins, all will be well; but if it should lose, the debating interests of the University may be hurt at a critical time in their history.
