NEW DEBATING UNION WILL MEET TOMORROW

FINLEY, CLEVELAND, SCHWARZ, AND NICHOLS WILL SPEAK

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Tomorrow night the Debating Union will hold the opening debate of the year in the Faculty Room of the Union at 7.30 o'clock. This meeting, the first of the new organization, will be open to all members of the University, whether they are or are not members of the Debating Union or of the Union.

The subject under discussion will be: "Resolved: that in the interest of the country a Conservative and a Liberal Party should supercede the present Republican and Democratic Parties." The speakers for the affirmative will be J. H. Finley '25 and F. G. Cleveland '25, while F. A. O. Schwarz '24 and W. I. Nichols '26 will uphold the negative side of the subject.

The meeting will serve a double purpose in that it is also to be a reorganization meeting of the new body into which the Conservative and Progressive Clubs voted on December 4 to amalgamate. This meeting will be held before the question for debate is brought up and at that time also a permanent President and an Executive Committee of four members will be elected.

The four speakers will each deliver a seven minute prepared speech after which the floor will be opened to discussion. Finally a vote of the floor will be taken which will decide the result of the debate.
