Linnea Johnson, Bill Andre w, Maynard Siegel perfect an upcoming debate. Compulsory service is theme for debaters " Mundane " was definitely not the word to describe the varsity debate squad in this year. In fact, things were pretty lively around the rostrum with the debaters partaking in a successful tournament season. The debate coach provided a strong incentive for the var¬ sity debaters with the newest in coaching techniques. He di¬ rected their actions with a braided bullwhip given him by four of his varsity squad. The infamous whip and its opera¬ tor ' s technique probably had much to do with the fact that varsity debaters achieved a highly commendable record of four wins and eight loss¬ es at the rigorous Illinois State University Invitational Debate Tournament held at Cham¬ paign, Illinois this year. Assembled behind the debate lecturn are, KNEELING, Maynard Siegel, Marty Lef- stein. FRONT ROW, Walt Stradley, Linnea Johnson, Debbie Bennett, Bob Mar- tensen, John Robison. BACK ROW, Steve Buller, David Cibberman, Bill Andrew, David Heinze, and Scott Caulpetzer.
