Harvard, Yale, Princeton Meet Tonight in Triangular Debates
Three College speakers will debate against Princeton tonight in the James Barr Ames Courtroom of Austin Hall in the annual triangular meeting dating from 1909. At the same time, another Harvard team will meet Yale at New Haven.
The formal debate, reminiscent of years when debating was the focus of University interest, will begin at 7:30 p.m. Robert M. O'Neil '56, Jared M. Diamond '58, and David P. Bryden '57 will meet Edward Golden, Princeton '58, John Lewis, '58, and Tom Farar '57. Harvard will support the negative of the topic, Resolved: "That this House Approves President Eisenhower's Solution to the Farm Problem."
At the same time, Cliff F. Thompson '56, George F. Frederickson '56, and Robert H. King '57 will debate the affirmative against Yale, in a similar affair, while a Yale team debates at Princeton.
In Austin Hall, the judges will be Charles P. Kindleberger, professor of Economics at M.I.T.; Everett J. Burtt, Chairman of the Department of Economics at Boston University; and the Hon. Charles Brytell, Judge of the Appellate Division of the First Department of New York. Following the debate, the speakers and their friends will attend a reception at the Hotel Commander.
