Team for Debate With Yale Chosen
The first trials to select the team to debate against Yale at New Haven on March 30, were held in Upper Dane last night, and resulted in the choice of A. H. Elder '07, G. W. Hinckley 3L and A. P. Matthew 1L. The question for the Yale debate will be the same as that argued in the trials, "Resolved, That it would be for the best interest of New York City to own its street railway system." The other three men who spoke in the final trials, J. A. Harley '06, J. W. Russell '06 and C. A. Small 2L., will compose the second team, from which the alternate will be chosen about a week before the Yale debate.
The Coolidge prize of $100 was awarded to A. H. Elder '07, for the best work in all three trials. The judges were Professor G. P. Baker '87, r. W. Kelso 2L., S. Curtis 1G. and R. T. Parke '98, who will coach the team.
