Debaters Defeat Columbia, Tie BC


Crimson debaters won two out of three contests last night, beating Columbia in New York, and splitting with Boston College, in a home-and-away series.

Debating the negative of the topic: "Resolved, That Communists should not be permitted to teach in American colleges and universities," Melvin L. Zurier '50 and A. Werner Pleus '51 won a unanimous decision over Columbia.

Zurier and Pleus argued that undesirables should be prosecuted for their individual misdeeds, not just condemned for belonging to a particular party.

Such mass condemnation could lead to dangerous restrictions on personal liberty, they said.

In the Kirkland Senior Common Room, Melvin C. Shefftz '51 and Julius Adler '52 successfully argued the negative of the subject: "Resolved, That the Communist party should be outlawed in the United States."

At Boston College, Walter C. Carrington '52 and Gordon Zimmerman '52 lost the affirmative of the same question.
