The new University Debating Club has everything in its favor. First, the men who have formed it will not fail to see that it is firmly established; second, the best debaters in college by coming into closer contact with one another will gain mutual benefit; third, a central organization is calculated to encourage the best form of rivalry and to place a higher standard on debating, and last, by setting a higher standard membership in the club will grow in general esteem.
Certainly Harvard debating is becoming well organized. Freshman clubs are now a regular part of the training and could not be spared, the new Sophomore Club has found a place to fill and is filling it well, and courses of instruction provided for the two upper classes. Finally, in the new club one and all have a single goal to attain which casts no shadow of petty rivalry in the path leading to victory over Harvard's rivals.
