W. E. Hutton '95 was the first speaker. He emphasized the importance of the present debate in that the Princeton men, although at first unused to the Harvard system of debating, had taken advantage of it and were now quite expert in its use. He was followed by J. P. Warren '96. Mr. Warrer laid emphasis on the fact that Harvard's supremacy in debating is acknowleged, but that if she is to retain that supremacy she must follow the recent defeat by Yale with victories.
The other speakers were W. S. Youngman '95, F. R. Steward '96, C. A. Duniway Gr., and E. H. Warren '95. F. Dobyns '98 was unable to be present.
The team which is to meet Princeton on Friday consists of S. R. Wrightington '97, C. Grilk '98, F. O. White '99; and L. O. O'Brien '97, alternate. The men will leave for Princeton via the New York and New Haven railroad at 3 o'clock this afternoon.
