DEBATE e aair 3QJg0C -l|®55
Page 128 text:
ACCOMPLISHMENT The keynote of the work of the Y. W. C. A. and Y. M. C. A. this year has been cooperation, with each other, with the down-town organizations of the same names, and with the college authorities. Concerted action of the two bodies was responsible for a large measure of success for Fresh- man Week. The party given in honor of the freshmen will long be remembered. The drive for funds for the joint budget of the two associations was accomplished by joint action of the cabinets. Perhaps the greatest work of the year was the secur- ing of nationally known speakers for the campus. Dad Elliot, known and loved by college students all over the United States, was the first of these famous speakers. His three days ' stay was given over to discussion of student problems and to inspirational lectures. With his keen in- sight into human nature, his love for and understanding of college students, combined to make his lectures long to be remembered. Dr. J. Stitt Wilson of California was the second of the speakers. His visit the previous year had in a measure prepared the old students for his coming. Many students did not miss a single one of the eight lectures. Dr. Wilson knows how to appeal to his audience. His profound phil- osophy was expressed in words so simple that the unin- itiated were able to understand and profit, yet so fraught with meaning, that the most learned could ponder deeply. No student of Centenary could have heard Dr. Wilson and not come away with a new inspiration.

DEBATE cn p -l) 5§g£ »: 3)f DR. S. A. STEGER, Coach Debating this year assumed the proportions of a major activity on the campus. A total of eighteen debates were given and in each, with the exception of the first, the Pi Kappa Dealta national question was used, which is; Resolved, that the United States should cease to protect, by armed force, capital invested in foreign lands, ex- cept after a formal declaration of war. This was the question selected by the national organization and offers ample argument on both the negative and affirmative sides. The first debate was on the Soviet Russia question. The year was particularly successful from the stand point of the development of new material. Five inexperienced teams were used of which four will return next year. It is believed that an exceptionally strong team will result in the work of Ward Jones and J. E. Bass, who appeared twice this season, and from whom much is ex- pected next season. Theron Brown and Eugene Tilleux, the latter graduating this year, comprised the only experienced team. They handled the question twelve of the eighteen times de- bating both the negative and affirmative sides. PI KAPPA DELTA CONVENTION TRIP For the first time in the history of Centenary a debating team was entered by the college in the national debating contest at the Pi Kappa Delta convention at Tiffin and Westerville, Ohio. Centenary was represented by Theron Brown and Eugene Tilleux who were accompanied on the trip by Dr. S. A. Steger, Head of the English Department and for the last three years debate coach. The Centenary team was eliminated in the third round by the strong William-Jewel team which went to the finals. Thus Centenary was well represented and a very creditable showing made. The trip made by the Centenary representatives, including incidental side trips to Niagara Falls, Canada, Detroit, Toledo, Chicago and St. Louis, is said to have been the most elaborate made by any Maroon and White extra-curricula representatives. They are said to have covered a total of eight thousand miles, carrying them into eleven different states and into Canada. They visited such places as Chicago, Ohio State University, President Harding ' s home at Marion, Senator Willis ' home at Dela- ware, Heidelberg College, Gary Indiana, Buffalo New York, Niagara Falls, Canada, Detroit, Toledo, and St. Louis. Great plans for debating are under way for next year and it is hoped that this trip, in interest of debating, will encourage a large number of persuasive artists to try their hand next year.
