First 1908 Debating Trials Tonight.

The first of a series of four trials for the Freshman debating team to debate with Exeter will be held this evening at 8 o'clock in the Assembly Room of the Union, on the question "Resolved. That railroad pooling should be legalized under federal supervision."

Each speaker will be allowed five minutes and the entire speaking will be limited to two hours. Merit in impromptu debate, rather than in extensive preparation, will be recognized. Men will be marked with from one to five points, according to merit, and will be picked according to the total number of points scored at all the trials. It is therefore more important that a man should speak at each meeting than that he should prepare extensively for any one of the trials. From 12 to 15 men will be retained in all. F. B. Wagner 3L. will act as judge tonight.
