Atatiosial tf-oAe.+i ' Uc Club Beginning with the Armistice Day program the students of this group have worked faithfully in many contests in reading, declama¬ tion, public speaking and spelling. In his Armistice Day speech, “Our Real Defense,” David Thorn¬ ton won first place in the county over William Byrd and William Fleming. This was the first year the contest was all-county. Our school for the first time became a member of the National Forensic League and participated in the district contest in Bristol, Va., sending representatives in extempore speaking, original, humor¬ ous, oratorical and dramatic declamation. Debating schools entering the contest were from Florida, Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia and West Virginia. Four of the contestants went to the finals: Sallie Lou Krieg, Juanita Stone, Mary Elizabeth Boone, and Broaddus Chewning. proudly wearing a ribbon for third place in humorous declamation. PeARL C.

Hatiosial fyoAe.H ' iia Jleax ue The Andrew Lewis Chapter of the National Forensic League was formed this year under the capable leadership of Mr. George Thompson, our new Debate Coach, who replaced Mrs. Ethyl Shockey. Mrs. Shockey left our faculty last year, after making a very success¬ ful record at Andrew Lewis, to take a position with the National Youth Administration. The debate teams attended the National Forensic League district meet at Bristol, Va. The teams, as they stood at this meet, were: Affirmative, first speaker and rebuttal, Charles Whitmore; second speaker and cross-examiner, David Thornton; negative, first speaker and rebuttal, Broaddus Chewning; second speaker and cross-examiner, Tom Weir. The affirmative met and defeated teams from the following places: Elizabethton, Tenn., Princeton, W. Va., and Orlando, Fla. The negative met and were defeated by the following: Kingsport, Tenn., Johnson City, Tenn., and Bristol, Va. The negative defeats eliminated the school. The teams, as they stood for competition in the Virginia Literary League, were: Affirmative, Charles Whitmore, first speaker; David Thornton, cross-examiner, and Alan Walrond, rebuttal. Negative, Broaddus Chewning, first speaker; Flarry Johnson, cross¬ examiner, and Tom Weir, rebuttal. Andrew Lewis met Jefferson for the district Virginia Literary League contest on April 19. As result of this contest, the Andrew Lewis affirmative and the Jefferson nega¬ tive will enter the state tournament at Charlottesville. The debate question for the year was, “Resolved: That the Power of the Federal Government Should be Increased.” The question for next year will pertain to compulsory military training. The purpose of forensic work is to enable the stu¬ dents, through practice, to present their ideas and plans intelligently and clearly to other people. When this is achieved the student has a valuable asset which nothing else can replace. N. F. L.
