The Debating Union Committee announced last night the list of speakers for the debate at 7.30 o'clock this evening in the Faculty Room of the Union.
D. W. Chapman Jr. '27 and F. J. Otis '27 will uphold the affirmative of the proposition, "Resolved: That this house approves of President Coolidge's proposals for a rebate on the 1926 income taxes." C. E. Wyzanski '27 and A. L. Barnhart 3L, will attack their stand upon the Presidential proposal.
The introductory speaker tonight, as previously announced will be Mr. G. W. Britt, Chief Special Deputy of the Department of Revenue. He will outline the principles of the Coolidge rebate plan and will comment upon its practicability. The four prepared speakers following him will be allowed approximately five minutes each to express their views.
Open Discussion Planned
The featured part of the evening, the one thing that distinguishes the Debating Union assemblies from other forensic controversies will be the open discussion for members of the audience immediately after the scheduled speeches. R. K. Strauss '27 of the Debating Union Committee, will preside as Chairman for the debate and for the discussion of the question.
At 9 o'clock the audience will be called upon for a decision on the Coolidge proposal. The result of the vote will be announced as the concluding event of the evening.
The meeting is open to all members of the University. Men who are planning to attend and are not familiar with the important political question involved may find articles on it in the Sunday New York Times and in current periodicals.
