£ w a £ Jt 0 a The Debate Team devoted their year to the research of topics and the organization of ideas, techniques, and logic. Most competi¬ tion was done in the local area in prepara¬ tion for sectional competition. The topic of the year dealt with the method of selecting Presidential and Vice-Presidential candi¬ dates. Organization of ideas and inter-team practices kept the interested debators very busy. As a new addition, The Speech Team, under the coaching direction of John Hires, worked long hours to achieve excellence this year. Practicing on Saturdays and holidays, the team won a first place trophy at the Northwestern Illinois Interscholastic Foren¬ sics Conference Tournament. Individual team members took first places in individu¬ al events at other interscholastic tourna¬ ments. Traveling to tournaments held in the State, the team completed the season by winning first in Reader’s Theater and Indi¬ vidual Events and second in the Contest Play at the district meet held at Moline.
