TRIANGULAR DEBATE TONIGHT

ON QUESTION OF CANAL TOLLS.--YALE MEETS HARVARD IN SANDERS THEATRE

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The fifth annual triangular debate between Harvard, Yale, and Princeton will take place this evening at 8 o'clock. Harvard will meet Yale in Sanders Theatre, Princeton will meet Harvard at Princeton, and Yale and Princeton will compete in New Haven. In each case the negative team debates at home. While the University has a better record than either Yale r Princeton in the triangular contests, our men will have the double defeat of last year to overcome tonight. Victory will go to the University winning two of the simultaneous debates. The subject to be debated at all three universities this evening is, "Resolved, That the United States Government should exempt our coastwise trade from Panama Canal tolls." The issues in the question depend largely on the interpretation of the Hay-Pauncefote Treaty of 1901, given by Congress in the recent Canal Tolls Act.

Arrangements for Debate Here.

The University team that will line up against Yale in Sanders Theatre is composed entirely of undergraduates. The University will be represented by R. L. West '14, F. F. Greenman '14, and I. Levin '14, while the Yale team will be composed of F. C. Bangs '13, E. A Burtt '15, and W. H. Williams, of the Divinity School. The speakers will debate in the order named both for the main speeches and for the rebuttal. Levin and Bangs were both on the teams last year, but the other men have never appeared before in an intercollegiate debate.

Each speaker will be allowed 12 minutes for his main speech and five minutes for rebuttal. Warnings will be given at the end of 10 minutes for speeches and four minutes for rebuttal. Judge A. P. Stone '93 will preside, and the judges for the debate have been selected as follows: Judge S. R. Cutler, of Boston; the Rev. Dr. W. E. Huntington, of Newton, ex-president of Boston University; and Professor A. C. Spofford, head of the department of Civil Engineering in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. While the judges are reaching a decision at the close of the debate, a double quartet from the University Glee Club will sing.
