Arguments for and against the advisability of amending the federal constitution will be brought to light this evening when the Harvard Debating Council encounters a team of M.I.T. orators in its first decision engagement this fall.
The debate will take place at 8 o'clock in Eastman Hall at M.I.T. All members of the University are invited to be present.
Discussion will center on the controversial subject "Resolved, That the following amendment to the United States Constitution should be adopted: Section 1. The Congress shall have the power to provide for the regulation of all commerce and industry within the national boundaries. Section 2. This power of the Congress shall be limited by Amendments I, IV, V, and IX of the Constitution of the United States."
The Crimson team, upholding the negative side of the question, will be composed of Edward J. Duggan '37, Robert Dunn '37, and James J. Fuld '37. Crimson alternates will be Richard W. Sullivan '38, Kenneth E. Colton '36, and Jay W. Kaufmann '38.
