“Woman should keep in her sphere, for to participate in civil work will make her unwomanly”; this is another favorite saying: of the opponents of woman suffrage. The same objection was made against a woman getting an education and in women entering the medical profession. We glance back with pride at our progress, when we remember that fifty years ago but one college in the United States was open to women, that fifty years ago a woman had no political rights which men were bound to respect. After the consideration of these points, I fully agree with the words of the late Gen. John Gibbon when lie says: “I have been seeking for some years a good, sound reason why women should not vote, and I have after diligent search found one and only one. It is because they arc women. There is no other as far as.I have yet been able to discover which rises above the frivolous. Women have life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness to protect just as men have, so why should they not have the same means of protecting these that men have? The only reason is that they have had the bad luck to come into the world as women, and man got ‘the drop’ on power first.” Lena M. Fkeiday. One hundred twenty

CICERONIAN DEBATING SOCIETY The Ciceronian Debating Club is a small number of men of the school who hold the art of debating at a high premium. Every member of the club is an enthusiast as far as debating goes. This club meets every Saturday evening in the Philomathean Hall, and great is the work that it accomplishes. Every boy of the school may become a member if he chooses, and debate frequently, because the membership is quite small. It is here the boys have the privilege of training themselves for the Preliminaries that come later in the year, and we lake pride in being able to say that those boys who won places on the squads were good, loyal members of old Cicero. They had had the privilege of debating before the members of the Ciceronian Club, which prepared them for the strife that came later. The members endeavored this year to keep the club going even after the Preliminaries, because debating ought to be just as good after the Preliminaries as before. Consequently the members, being so enthusiastic, have kept the good work going and hope to put Cicero on a substantial basis. May that hope be realized, for great is the value of debating. We, the members of the Ciceronian Debating Club, believe that a teacher has not done his duty if he has not availed himself of every opportunity to develop his forensic abilities. We believe that in order to teach the youth of the land the teacher must understand at least the art of debate, and if he has made debating a study, just that much greater is he as a teacher.
