tffta Site fie 5uniee = ? DEBATE Connery Thompson VH« l.ouiscll THE AFFIRMATIVE TEAM The affirmative team had a very successful season, having gone through the year without a defeat. The question debated was "Resolved: That the Essential Features of the McNary-Haugen Bill Be Adopted.” The team defeated Eau Claire by a score of 100 to 90 (expert judge) and triumphed over Hibbing by a decision of 2 to I (three judges). The team is composed of Elvira Thompson, who captained the team, and is a veteran of last year’s college team and a former debater at Denfeld High school; Paul Louiscll, former Duluth Central debater, and Robert Connery, who debated on the Duluth Central team. Miss Thompson and Mr. Connery will be back again next year and will form the nucleus upon which to build a strong team. Much of the success of the team is due to the fine coaching of Mr. Vitz. —DO—
