E.M. Rowe '27, coach of the University Debating team, yesterday announced that negotiations had failed for the annual Harvard-Yale-Princeton triangular debate. Because of Yale's refusal of the plan of the Harvard Debating Council for the enforcement of the Eighteenth Amendment as a subject for the triangular debate, the necessary arrangements could not be made. Instead of participating in the triangular debate Harvard will debate Princeton and Yale separately.
"Resolved, That the United States Senate should ratify the Pan-American Arbitration Treaty without reservations", will be the subject for argument next Saturday night when the Crimson debaters met the Eli team for the first Yale-Harvard debate of the season. Harvard will bear the affirmative burden of argument on this question. The men from whom the Harvard representatives will be chosen are, G. W. Harrington '30, J. F. Harding '30, D. I. Cooke '31, H. G. Abdian '30, R. B. Eckles '32, P. H. Cohen '32, C. F. Elliot '31, F. C. Flechter Jr '32, and J. R. Wolfe '32. The debate will be held in Cambridge.
The Princeton-Harvard debate will be held on April 19 at Princeton. The subject for the debate will be taken from the Debating Council's plan. The debate has had to be postponed due to a trip which the Princeton debaters are now making throughout the West.
