peace in the future years."
With these words the affirmative speaker Gnishes a debate and thus ends another meeting of the eighteen-
year-old DEBATING SOCIETY. At every meeting a topic of national, international or local importance is
discussed in arliamentary, yet fiery fashion. However, the open forum which follows the debate and' which is
the time n the debaters are questioned by the members of the Society, is a period when arguing reaches a
red-hot peak and parliament'ary procedure usually has to be dropped.
