Western Speakers Meet University in Paine Hall at 8.30 O'clock Today--Courtney, Fairbank, Kwong Speak

A debating team representing Carleton College of Northfield, Minnesota, will meet the University debaters tonight in Paine Hall at 8.30 o'clock.

The negative side of the question: "Resolved, That the United States cease to protect with armed forces American investments in foreign lands without prior declaration of war," will be argued by the University team composed of R. F. Courtney '29, J. K. Fairbank '29, and V. K. Kwong '29 with L. F. Hess Sp., and N. M. Sachs '29 as alternates. The final choice of the debaters was made known last night by E. M. Rowe '27, coach of debating, as a result of trials held yesterday afternoon in Paine Hall.

The visiting team, composed of B. C. Duniway, Rolf Lium, and Herman Johnson, is on a tour of the East engaging in an extensive program of debates with Eastern institutions. All of its members are experienced debaters, and one of them, Rolf Lium, gained nation-wide prominence last summer when he acted as preacher for the Congregational church attended by President and Mrs. Coolidge during their sojourn in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

The arrangement of speeches calls for a ten-minute speech by the first Alleviative speaker who will also have a five minute rebuttal in closing, and 15-minute speeches by all of the other orators.

Roy Edwards of the Canadian Club of Boston will preside.
