Girl's Debate Stoughton- Ft. Atkinson-Edgerton. Again the year of Forensics has opened. We have as for the past few years had a large number participating in this work. A girls' debate was arranged for between Stoughton, Ft. Atkinson and Edgerton. The subject chosen for the debate this year was, "Resolved, That the Federal government own and operate the public service telephone and telegraph lines in this country." The results of the tryouts were as follows: NEGATIVE-- AFFIRMATIVE- Helen Smith Esther Nelson Viola Harrison Hattie Hubbell Genevieve Nichols Eleanor Maltpress Gertrude Nichols (alternate) Lydia Ziemann (alternate) The debate was held on Friday afternoon, March 12. The Negative Team went with Miss Stafford to Fort Atkinson to debate the Fort At- kinson Affirmative team. The girls were served a delightful banquet which was thoroughly appreciated by the team. The Fort Atkinson girls seemed to have the luck that day and won unanimously. The Af- firmative team met the Stoughton team at Edgerton. The decision was unanimous in favor of the Affirmative team. The Fort Atkinson Nega- tive team went to Stoughton and lost unanimously there. It seems that every team that had its own platform and surroundings won the debate. No one school carried away the entire honors.
