Negotiations begun early last spring have at last resulted in bringing into actuality a radio debate between Harvard and Stanford. These two universities, situated on opposite shores of the continent, will inaugurate the first nationwide, intercollegiate forensic contest over the air.
Harvard, who initiated the idea, chose Stanford as the contender, basing the choice upon the high quality of Indian debaters in the past few years. The debate will take place November 27 over the Columbia broadcasting system and allied stations.
Stanford is honored to have been chosen as a participant in this initial trans-continental hookup which will permit persons all over the country to listen in on this interesting experiment.
If successful, this plan makes possible other similar contests with schools in distant states, enabling the points of view of different sections of the country to be compared.
The subject for discussion is: "Resolved: That America needs a strong central government." --Stanford Daily.
