Tho first (if the two preliminary con
tests to tho Interstate debates was held
last night in tho old chapel. A large
and exceedingly enthusiastic audience
greeted the speakers. The debate
was on the question of municipal
ownership of surfaco transportation.
It showed an Immense amount of
preparation as each speaker was full
of his subject. W. F. Meier opened
the discussion with a brief account
on tho negative, in a manner which
showed that lie had the proper spirit
though lacking somewhat in oaso.
T. A. Maxwoll then took up tho
affirmative in his caractcristic delib
erative stylo ana ease on tho plat
form. Mr. Milek laid particular
stress on rebuttal and gave a straight
forward talk. 1. K. Baldwin then
followed with a somewhat oratorical
effort on trio merit of the muni
cipal ownership. Mr. Lewis for
the negative was full or fire from
start to finish and showed that he
had ills mattor well in hand. Mr.
Wlllets gave a clear and a well
thought out talK but lacked a little
of the porsuaslvo quality. C. P.
Craft's arguments against the propos
ed plan wore as clear as could be given
and dollvored in a forcible mannar.
J. Kolley answered In a logical

Mr. Yoder on the negative gave
a logical discussion in a clear man
ner, He lacked, however, the ability
to stir up the battle. C. A. Kutcher
spoko in a very deliberative manner
of tile advantages of the propobod
plan. Mr. Kutcher's argument was
r.lear and effective. N. M. Cronin
closed the debate for tho negative
with a talk which, though clear,
lacked persuasiveness. Tho decision
of the Judges was not made last
night and will not bo until after
tho second contest.
