The Subject Chosen.- Date Set for the First Trial.

After long discussion and consultation with various professors, the Committee on Intercollegiate Debates has finally chosen the following question for the Yale debate: "Resolved, That the United States should adopt definitely the single gold standard and should decline to enter a bimetallic league, even if Great Britain, France and Germany should be willing to enter such a league." This question has been telegraphed to Yale with the request that her choice of sides be sent back within two weeks.

The first trial debate for speakers has been definitely fixed for Friday, February 19. The committee has not yet decided whether or not there will be more than one trial.
