Such are. the results of thotsbrlea
of debates which were hold at' differ
ent western colleges last Friday oven-""
ing. When it is considered that hi
overy case the afllrmatlye was victori

by no means tho stronger" of the teams
which some colleges produced, It
seems very Hkoljr that thoro must
have been something abodt the word

The attendance nt the debate in

Minnesota won their debate with'
Nebraska on account of the superior
manner in which they seemed to prej-sent-Urerr-TJldiT-oT
though, their arguments 'when an
alyzed are" seon to bo a series of fal
lacies, Nebraska does not contend for
a moment that the 'decision was" un
just or that Minnesota did not earn
her victory. The Minnesota speakers
had ah apparent strength which made
a deep Impression.-

Mr, Bracelln and Mr. Cronln, two
of Nebraska's old debating stars, were
much in evidence at this debate. After
tho first Nebraska speaker had con-
eluded his argument a big voted from
ono corner of the room called out,
MWhatJs the matter with Nebraska ?,"
T'hen, from the other corner of tho:
rcom came -a little voice In reply.
This became so Tegular .that ufter
each Nebraska speaker .finished the
audience waited for the little duet.
