Plans for Debate With Yale.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The annual Harvard-Yale debate will be held this year at New Haven on December 4 or 5. Yale will submit the question, which will appear in Saturday's CRIMSON. The trials to select the Harvard team, open to all men in the University, will be held on the evenings of Tuesday, October 27, Friday, October 30, and Monday, November 2. At the first trial each man will be allowed five minutes to speak, and from twelve to fifteen men will be retained. At the second trial ten minutes will be allowed and six men retained. These six men will be divided by lot into two teams, which, at the final trials, will conduct a regular debate, with main speeches of twelve minutes, and five minute rebuttals. The three men who debate most effectively in the final trials will constitute the team which will meet Yale. The other three men will form a second team, from which later the alternate will be selected. To the man who does the best debating in all three trials will be awarded the Coolidge prize of $100.
