fseatedl Mr. Metz, Lucille Irvin, Welcome Plough, Virginia Stebbins.
Vv'e, of the debate team, feel that we owe our success to our efficient coach, Mr. Metz. No
matter how hard the struggle he was able to pull us through successfully. We surely appreciate
his patience with us,
Although we only had a wcck to prepare ourselves for the first round of debate we were
able to succeed due to the thorough drilling and coaching of Mr. Metz during that week,
Mr. Metz has had much experience in debating for he has debated on college teams. He is
very thorough and he has made debate very interesting for us this year, and we feel that there
is no better coach in the county.
In the first round the affirmative journeyed to Smithville where they lost in decisions but
were graded higher than their opponents. The negative team debated Appleereek at home and
received a unanimous decision.
In the second round the negative met Doylestown at Doylestown and victory was with us.
for we again won three decisions. The affirmative team clashed with Chester at home and also
gained a unanimous decision.
The third round ol' debate was on hlarch 31. The altlirmative team clashed with Rittman
at Rittman where they lost in a two to one decision in favor of Rittman. The negative team
stayed at home and debated Congress. This decision was unanimous for Creston.
' This gave us four judges' decisions. Rittman's affirmative team debated with Congress' neg-
ative team and Congress won two to one. This gave Rittman three judges' decisions and Congress
Creston, because we won the most decisions, was awarded first place in the county, Rittman
second and Congress third.
