Freshman Debating Club.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The last meeting of the Freshman Debating Club was held in Sever 6 last night at 7 o'clock. Business of various kinds was transacted. A vote of thanks was extended to the president and secretary for their faithful services during the last half year. The executive committee will organize a Freshman Debating Club for the class of '99 early next fall.

The Harvard Freshman Debating Club of the class of '98 has been very successful. Its membership has been double that of the two older clubs, and the average attendance at its meetings has been very large. Those who have taken part have undoubtedly received much benefit from the club as was shown by the speaking at the trial debate to choose representatives for the debate with the Yale Freshman Union. The committee of judges at the final trial debate expressed themselves as highly pleased with the speaking of the freshmen.

The debates of the Harvard Union and of the Wendell Phillips Club next Friday night are intended especially for members of the Freshman Debating Club. As the Freshman Debating Club was organized as a feeder for these two older societies, many freshmen will undoubtedly take advantage of this opportunity of speaking for membership.
