Debaters Achieve Landslide Win In Intercollegiate Meet at Brown


The University Debate Council triumphed in Providence Friday and Saturday, carrying off all six of the trophies offered at the Brown Invitational Debate Conference.

Forty-two Eastern colleges debated whether making membership in labor unions a compulsory condition of employment is illegal.

Larry E. Reeder '59 and David L. Bynum '59 represented the affirmative; arguing on the negative side were James L. Kincaid '58, president of the Council, and John M. Ferrem '59.

The Harvard teams argued ten rounds during the two-day conference, and emerged with a 10 to 0 victory, winning first place in the debate and gaining the top four individual speaker ratings. It was the group's first major invitational tournament win of the year.

The Debate Council was the recipient also of a booby prize, donated by the Dartmouth Forensic Union, in the form of a small model of a drum. On it was inscribed: "Presented in memory of those valiant (sic) men who made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of the Harvard bass drum."
