KANSAS DEBATE TONIGHT
Cornhusker and Jayhawker
Brilliant Contest of Logic
Representatives will Present
at Memorial Hall Tonight.
Tonight 'in Memorial hull the Kan
sas and Nebraska wains will meet to
s-ettle the question of supremacy, in
what promises to be the most haid
fought contest ever occurring here Qui
champions hae been drilled on the
question for weeks, while the Kansans
hae been no less assiduous in their
preparation, and the contest will mark
the meeting of two heavy forces, the
strongest of which will predominate.
The debate may best be characterized
as a brief display of concentrated ef
fort that has been long in being worked
up. The issue will be sharply fought
from start to finish and we hope that
the outcome will be Nebraska's occa
sion to rejoice.
The Kansas team arrived yesterday
evening over the Union Pacific and
. are staying at the Lindell hotel. They
are each expected to make brief
speeches at convocation this morning.
Mr. Buckner will alBTT-Bpeak. "
The debate' will begin at 8' o'clock
sharp. For Nebraska, who has the neg
ative, C. A. Sawyer will speak first.
He will be followed by L. C. Lightner,
and E.R. Buckner will speak last and
also have charge of the final refuta
tion. For Kansas S. B. Bartlett wilj
open the debate, being followed by J.
A .Johnson and J. W. Kayser, who
will speak last. Twenty minutes has
been allowed each speaker for presenting-his
argument, fifteen minutes as
had formerly been agreed upon, being
deemed Insufficient. Ten minutes will
also be allowed the third on the afllrm--f
atlve and the last on the negative for
final refutation. For Nebraska E. R.
Buckner will close the debate and for
Kansas J. W1. Kayser.
Although all of our representatives
