Inter-Scholastic Debate. In the days of ancient Rome, brave gladiators came forth to battle with fierce, wild animals, sometimes to fight and win, sometimes to sacrifice a human life to mere brute force, while breathless audiences crowding the coliseum amused themselves by watching the outcome. But in these civilized days of modern high schools, we have contests wherein, unlike those of old, boys willingly fight to maintain the honor of their high school, not to amuse but to instruct, making the contest not one of physical prowess, but of mental skill. Such a contest was held in the assembly room of the Alton High School on March 29, when three representatives of Manual Training School for Boys, of St. Louis, met Capt. Elliott Taylor, John Shine and Paul Scott, chosen to represent Alton High School, to debate the question, "Resolved, That Co-education is Unde- sirable in Secondary Schools. " Alton took the affirmative, St. Louis the negative. The struggle, however, was like that of a lion and a lamb, so docile did Alton's antagonists proved to be, and the judges' unanimous decision for the affirmative wasthe universal verdict of the interested audience. In fact, the best argument for the negative was our boys, products of a co-educational system, for they proved their superiority in address, oratory and thought. Their debate was keen and well organized, while each speaker backed up his statements with proofs or disproofs. Paul, the first speaker of the affirmative, proved conclusively that co-education is undesirable intellectually, Elliott, by clear, forceful arguments, proved that it is undesirable physically, John, with eloquence, proved that it is undesirable morally, while, in rebuttal, Paul was so exhaustless, so fluent and so convincing in giving the final word in refutation to each argument that he won the epithet-the invincible. Q The coaches for the debate were Mr. Ritcher and Mr. Richardson. The effect of this contest was felt in renewed effort and enthusiasm for debate in the literary societies and more loyalty, in general, to Alton High School. "A Mellinls' Food Boy."-GEORGE WALTER. 133
