The triangular debate, trials for which in the University begin tonight, offers an opportunity to deal intelligently with the big problem of the day. Last year a similar question, coupled with the fact that debating was for the first time restricted to undergraduates, brought out an unusual number of able candidates. They made an excellent showing, but failed to win the championship. This year, with an equally important topic, and last year's experience, undergraduates ought both to profit individually and to demonstrate that interest in debating in the University is strong enough to win championships under the new system.
