A Debate Council team has been scheduled to meet Dartmouth November 6 on a Federal World Government topic, and last year's Oxford contest will be repeated early in January.
Since the beginning of the term, the Debate Council has accepted thirteen provisional members, who will be elected on the basis of their performance in the coming events, Beren revealed.
