Forensic REVIEW OF THE SEASON Last year Debating assumed the proportions of a major activity, but this year the teams were even more successful than last season; Centenary winning eight of the fourteen decision debates. In each debate the Pi Kappa Delta national question was used, which is: Resolved, That a Sub- stitute for Trial by Jury Should Be Adopted. Three teams of boys and one of girls were used, with Jackson and Trichel bearing the burden. This was the first collegiate debating experi- ence for Jackson and Trichel, and Durham and Rosbottom; and both teams will be back next year. The girls ' team made up of Ellen Moore and Ida Mae Cox debated only once, but won this easily, taking all three of the judges ' votes. The season opened on foreign soil with Bass and Jones defending the negative side of the question at Waco. At the beginning of the Spring term, Jackson and Trichel 1 be an their ac tivities with a trip to Louisiana Tech and Mississippi. At Tech they lost the decision by one vote, but they can be excused for this defeat since they were debating a girls ' team. In Mississippi, they made a clean sweep of the three debates. Durham and Rosbottom constituted the only team defending the af- firmative side of the question; and of their three debates they were vic- torious in one. In oratory the school was also quite successful. Burton Weekley took second place in the State Peace Oratorical Contest, losing the first by only two points. In the Girls ' State Oratorical Contest, Eleanor Shaw was awarded second place. Page Ninety-two
