Debaters Down Yale, Penn; Fall Before Army Onslaught

Seeded fifth in a field of sixteen colleges, Elton McNeil '49, and David Funk, NROTC, placed in the quarter-finals of the West Point debating tournament Saturday. Arguing both sides of the question of compulsory military training, the Crimson squad defeated Yale and Penn State before losing to the top-seeded West Point team, which went on to beat Iowa and Annapolis to win the tournament for the second straight year.

Other debating activities over the weekend included a non-decision contest with Boston University at the Boston Y.M.C.A. Sunday afternoon, and a debate on free trade against Bates Friday night, in which Alden Besso '48 and Samuel Stuart, 2nd '45 were defeated by the visitors from Maine.
