171 from Cirrus Union High School in the larter ' s auditorium. This debate was most in- teresting, inasmuch as both teams were especially well prepared and strove to the utmost to capture the vote. Naomi fought with her usual fire, as for Malcolm, though this was but his first big time debate, he performed in such a praiseworthy manner, the people were convinced that he was a veteran. The Arabs fought determinedly to the very end. They established a strong, well-balanced case and backed it up with an admirable refutation, but as only one team could win, they were forced down in a glorious defeat. The last debate of the season, against Puente Union High School, took place at Alhambra. The Moorish participants were Elizabeth Artz and Eddie Hallock, seniors, who distinguished themselves by the fact that they debated Oregon style. That is, they cross-questioned the opposing team and in turn were themselves subjected to cross-examination. The speakers from Puente presented an excellent debate, but the Arabs put them completely to shame During the whole debate the Moors proved to be true disciples of the Walker-Shipman system; and when they finished, not a Puente argument was left standing They emerged with a unanimous decision. This concludes the activities of Alhambra in the San Gabriel Valley Debate League. But at various times throughout the season the Junior Varsity squad has also engaged itself in other interesting contests, at which we have achieved enviable success — losing one debate and winning three. Outlaw Debates ON december 10, Cordon Jenkins and Harry Slack defended the affirmative side of the question: Resolved, " That the United States should recognize Soviet Russia, " against the terrific attack of the Belmont team. Our boys fought with the good old Moorish spirit, but the odds were against them. However, when they learned that the Belmont team had already debated three times they took defeat as a matter of course. Scores were evened with Herbert Hoover High School in December 7, when Robert Kistler and Debate Manager William Devine appeared in the Clendale assembly and beat the Hooverites on the negative side of the question: Resolved, " That compul- sory Military Training be adopted in Secondary Schools. " William and Bob, both here- tofore inexperienced in inter-scholastic debating, outclassed the Clendale speakers in every department of the field Evidently the Hooverites were not satisfied with the result of this fray, for not long afterward they challenged the Moors to another debate, dual in nature, the question of which was: Resolved, " That an economic boy- cott should be declared against Japan. The morning of March 16, Louise Howard and Malcolm Hinkley journeyed to Clendale in defense of the affirmative side of the question and once more before the Hoovente ' s assembly the Arabs claimed the laurels after completely routing their foes. That afternoon a Clendale team visited Alhambra and took defeat at the hands of Harry Slack and William Devine, who launched a crushing attack in favor of the negative side of the question.
