Freshman Trial Debate.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The final trial of the Freshman Debating Club to choose a team for the second debate against the Sophomore Debating Club was held last evening in Sever 11. The question was: "Resolved, That the President of the United States should be elected for a term of six years, and should be ineligible for re-election."

The speaking was, on the whole, very creditable and showed careful preparation. The main fault consisted in a tendency to make unauthorized statements. From the ten men selected at the first trial March 14, the judges, W. E. Hutton 3L and W. E. Weaver '98, chose H. W. Bowker, L. M. Dougan, J. G. Peirce, and J. C. Mangan (alternate).

The inter-club debate will be held April 4, and will be on the question debated last night. The Freshman team will support the negative, as the Sophomore Club, having the choice of sides, selected the affirmative. The principal speeches will be limited to ten minutes in length, and the rebuttal speeches to five minutes.
