Debating was again in evidence in the high
school this past year, and the rivalry and interest 1n 1t
was very great. We had intended to arrange debates
between our school and others outside, and challenges
were sent out to several institutions. South Haven
accepted, providing satisfactory arrangements could
he made, but their idea of ttsatisfaetory arrangementsh
seemed to be that we should accept their decision on
all points. After we had conceded both time and
place. and even agreed to sacrihce a scale of markings
and trust to the general impression of the judges, an
unheard of proceeding in either a regular debating 0r
oratorical contest, they refused to comply with our
one modest request that the subject be more felicitous-
1y worded, and the debate was called Off.
Between the four classes in our own school, how-
ever. interesting debates took place. The first one was
held in the Adelphi, on January thirteenth, and was
between the Juniors and Seniors. The question, TTRe-

stone Quartette, composed of Harry Young, Harvey
Lowe, Ned Anderson and Lester Null, who received
great applause from the audience for their clever sing-
ing and acting; the skillful buck and wing dancing of
Harry Brown and Pearl Byers; and acrobatic feats
of Roy Montford, Guy Moats and Freddie Hoffman,
which called forth enthusiastic praise.
Thus ended one of the best amateur entertain-
ments ever given in Benton Harbor, as everyone
who saw the show will tell you. Much credit is to be
given to Miss Clara Fields, who played the piano at
all the rehearsals and helped the boys to success. Har-
ry Brown, also, is not to be forgotten, for he success-
fully managed the show and turned over a neat sum
of money to the foot-bal'l boys for their Bis, Which
they certainly deserved. 5. MC': ,08"
