Debating Board Makes Further
Inquiries of Kansas.
The question for the debato with
Kansas has not yet been settled. Con
siderable correspondence has been ex
changed upon tho subject, without any
satisfactory tonclusions having been
arrived at. The wording of tho last
question submitted by Kansas relating
to the Monroe doctrine was rather
vaguo and definition was asked for. As
yet none has been submitted that could
be considered satisfactory.
In reply to Nebraska's telegraphed
Inquiry sent Monday evening, bb to
when wo might expect tho definition
of tho Monroe Doctrine question, a
telegram was received from Kansas
Tuesday evening by Secretary Ryner
of the debating board. ThiB was dis
cussed at length yesterday by tho board
whoso deliberations resulted in a let
ter being sent to Kansas last night
The definition given by Kansas was
unsatisfactory to tho committee be
cause it didn't ensure a genuine debate
clinch. There are a few points re
garding tho question that might first
bo made clear. A reply to Mr. Ry
ner's letter sont yesterday evening is
expected very shortly.
Tho Kansas Weekly seems consider
ably exorcised over tho desire of our
board to have a living question debated
and one that was not debated recently
by other institutions. It regards the
insistence of our board with impatience,
forgetting that each side must be per
fectly satisfied with the question before
It accept it. However, if it can bear
with us a while wo will try and get the
matter arranged to Its own liking.
In a great contest last Friday even
ing Northwestern defeated Chicago.
This debato was watched with great In
terest horo because Cecil North, who
won laurels here in former years hai
been among those chosen to represent
Chicago. But unfortunately he was
unable to take part having been close
ly confletTBy Illness, probably due to
tha excesBlvo strain of tho work of
preparation. His absence undoubtedly
weakenod the Chicago team, as he was
one of their strongest mem Concern
ing lr. North, Coach Chandler, who
trained tho team, said:
"North camo out for the first time'
after two weeks' confinement with a
hard illness In order that his presence
In the audience might be an Incentive
to his colleagues."
Bach man on tho team had -severe
obstacles impeding them and it Is
.remarkable that Chicago made the
showing that she dld- In editorial
comment tho Dally Maroon says: "In
other words Chicago's speeches were
not so 'set' as tho Northwestern
speeches. Our debaters did more ex
tempore work and did It with greater
effectiveness than the men of the op
position." PRACTICE FOR PLAY.

A. Tomorrow Night.
Tomorrow night our basket ball
team will clash with tho city Y. M C.
A. team In the armory with a view to
settling our account, on which the
balance Is nt present against them. Our
men suffered defeat at the hands of
the city team last Friday evening, los
ing by a narrow margin in a room
that was smaller than tho one that
they had been used to plnylng in. which
fact probably had something to do with
the lesult of the game. However, our
men have no excuses to make, but
will strive to win over their oppo
nents by legitimate effort.
Incidentally our faculty team will
bore Into prominence again in striv
ing to demolist a team composed of
Lincoln business and. jjrofessional men.
They expect to make the dust fly as It
has never flown, and if they carry out
their wicked designs some cruel exe
cution may result. Neither the faculty
members nor the Lincoln business men
are afflicted with any undone amount
of plasticity in their limbs, and owing
to this fact some eccentric methods
of rlay may bp looked for. The faculty
are building up a good reputation for
speed and aggressiveness, and are quite
willing to sacrifice the life and limb
of their opponents In devotion to their
