CICERONIAN DEBATING CLUB.
Colors—Orange ami Black MOTTO:
“Debating is expressing honest convictions in the most advantageous manner. 'File debater is a teacher, a thought awakener, a conviction developer. To debate is to stand openly, squarely, and forcefully for one’s honest convictions. This is the highest type of development of ‘self-dependent power' which alone doth time defy as rocks resist the billows or the sky. Had I my college life to live again. I would drop any three subjects from the regular course before 1 would give up the joys, the conflicts', the defeats and the triumphs of those evenings spent in a college boys’ debating club." . IV. Scarson.
During the score of years since the Ciceronian Debating Club was organized it has always held up as its aim and purpose those high ideals of debating and forensic culture such ?.s are embodied in the words of our club's adviser in the above quotation.
One may learn the principles and methods of preparing a debate from books or in the class room, but he can never become a debator unless he has the privilege of making practical applications of those principles and methods in real • debating.
The debating club affords this opportunity. It is the laboratory where forensic experiments are performed by each individual member.
The work of the year just passed has been not only successful, but exceedingly gratifying. Up-to-date topics have been discussed at all times. Each of the preliminary and inter-collegiate questions was debated by the society.
An interesting fact to note is that every young man who won a place on the inter-collegiate debating squads was a member of Cicero.
Programs deserving of special mention were "Hearing of a Remonstrance Filed Against the Granting of a Saloon License by the City Council.” December 7, and the "National Electoral Convention." April 25. at which time nominations and election of president and vice-president of the United States took place. The climax of enthusiasm was reached when Hon. Jesse Harris came forth to deliver his speech of acceptance.
The officers of this debating club are to be highly complimented for their faithful, enthusiastic efforts in making the work exceedingly interesting and profitable this year.
