Harvard-Princeton Debate.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Great difficulty has been experienced in securing judges for the Harvard-Princeton debate who should be satisfactory to both sides. The Princeton committee submitted the names of about fifty gentlemen to Harvard's representatives before finally receiving their agreement to the following: Professor George Chase of the New York Law School, the Rev. Dr. David Greer of New York City, and George L. Rives of New York City. They have consented to serve. Gen. Horace Porter of New York City will preside.

For Princeton Willis H. Butler of New York City will open the debate, Joseph W. Park of Mississippi will speak second, and Howard E. White of New York City will deliver the third speech. In rebuttal, the time will be divided between Mr. White and Mr. Park, Mr. White closing the debate for Princeton.

The debate will be held in the new commencement building, Alexander Hall. The University Mandolin Club is expected to furnish music for the occasion. Delegates from the Yale debating clubs have been invited to attend the debate.

Immediately after the debate a dinner will be tendered the Harvard representatives at the new Princeton Inn, at which sixty covers will be laid, and toasts will be responded to by Gen. Porter, Lloyd McKim Garrison, who will respond to the toast "Harvard University": President Patton, on "Princeton University;" Professor William M. Sloane, on "The Debate"; Professor Henry F. Osborn, of Columbia College, on "Intercollegiate Contests." James W. Alexander '60, of New York City, will act as toastmaster, and a quartet from the University Glee Club will furnish music.
