Forensics


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.
