When these two girls represent Peru, who can stand against us? All who do better look well to their laurels.
(ilenn Kelley is quiet, unobtrusive and not truculent but when he once gets stirred for the light it would take a buzz saw in motion to stop his onslaught. He thinks and then thinks some more. What he says is to the point and he generally Moors his opponent with blows too formidable to be resisted.
Stephen Ducrisch is a modern Stephen A. Douglas. Both have much debating stock in their blood, both arc thinkers, both are of a size, “both are witty, both arc wise.” Both whittle an argument to a point and then knock the point off. His oratory is patterned after that of Douglas and his blows are just as telling.
Talbot Hunt is just the opposite of Deurisch as to size and when he shows his strength in argument and quick wit and ever ready story that is pat, we are greatly reminded of that eminent American who was always reminded of a story. Hunt is a voracious reader and especially enjoys English subjects. His brains, his appearance, his analytic powers ought to put fear into the ranks of the enemy.
Frederick Kuhlnian has an excellent voice, an athletic manner, and an appearance which are in his favor. He is a modern Antaeus and we always find him getting up when we think we have him floored. His mind is always ready to sec the inconsistency of the other’s arguments and woe be to him who varies ever so little from the point at issue.
Ray Robertson a man of excellent voice, force, and ability has been picked from the student body to take the place of John Allsman, who had to leave school on account of the sickness of his father. Mr. Robertson has proved himself a good man in almost every place of importance among the student efforts. He has a fine stage presence, is not afraid of anyone, and has ability to amass facts and figures in a forceful way.
Verne Chatelain has been a debater for a number of years and has always been able to do mighty well. He is a tireless worker, has a keen analytic mind, and is always ready for an emergency. He has good presence, a fine voice and is not easily embarrassed. He has always had the ability of showing an argument in its greatest force ami his confidence in his subject has never been able to beget confidence in his enemy.
Richard Meissner is a debater of much experience. He is class president and has an unusually fine opportunity to show his caliber. His voice is big and strong, he thinks fast and without effort. His experience in public speaking has given him an easy platform grace, which will he in his favor. He is always busy and is a good worker. We expect much from him in the coming contest.
We have been very fortunate this year in having Reverend IVter Cope of the Christian church to assist us in the preparation of the debaters for their contest. Reverend Cope is a college debater of much experience, having debated six times during his his college career and was always on the winning team. W e shall never forget his services since he has sacrificed so many other things that he might help us. Fifteen 'Rahs for Cope.

REV. PETER COPE
PROF. 1. O. WILSON
We were fortunate in scheduling a number of college debates immediately and shall debate two questions. With Midland College, a Lutheran Church school of Atchison, Kansas, our debaters will uphold the affirmative at Peru, April 23, of the qeustion of the abandonment of the Monroe Doctrine. The debaters against Kansas are: Bryan Enimcrt, Mildred Monia, and Glen Kelley.
On Thursday, April 26, this affirmative team debates at Crete against Doanc College on the same question. The negative will be upheld at Peru the same night by Stephen Duerisch, Myrtle Harris, and Talbot Hunt.
The other question for debate will be the one of Compulsory Arbitration. It will be affirmed at Peru by Fred Kuhlman and Ray Robertson and denied bv debaters from the Colorado State Teachers’ College, of Greeley, Colorado. This is a dual debate and the same night the debate is held here, President Haves will have at Greeley to uphold the negative, Verne Chatelain and Richard Meissner.
There arc characteristics prevalent in each debater which we have been asked to show in their moderation :
Bryan F.mmcrt was one of those who won out last year in debating. He has a fine voice, is apt, and quick at retort. By one phrase last year he made all the judges and people sit up and take notice. His voice is hard to beat and coupled with his powers of oratory make a combination that is hard to beat. We predict for him a place among the orators of the country.
Mildred Monia and Myrtle Harris are both young women that must command respect. They arc handsome, polished, graceful and have excellent poise. Both have no hesitancy in attacking the enemy and both have every confidence necessary to fight well. Both are quick at repartee and both have excellent presence on the stage.
