ON Thursday the elective in English 5 tried an experiment in the shape of a debate. The subject chosen (the question whether women who pay taxes on property should be allowed to vote for city, town, and municipal officers) was practical in its nature, and considerable interest was taken in the debate. The question, too, had been well studied by the debaters. The experiment is the result of a desire, on the part of those who regulate the instruction given in college, to develop among the students an ability "to think on their legs," and in this way to become fitted to take a more prominent place in public affairs. Should the experiment be found successful, probably a new elective in the art of debate will be offered next year.
