STUDENT8HEAR LAUGHLIN TALK
Speaker Attacks Agitators of Bank
J. Lawrence Laughlln, head of the
department of economics of the Uni
versity of Chicago, addressed the Btato
bankers' association yesterday morn
ing and many university students
availed themselves of the privilege of
hearing a presentation of the question
of bank deposit guarantee.
Mr. Laughlln directed the course of
his remarks to prove that the agita
tors of bank guarantee are either ig
norant of their subject or, regardless
of the merits of the question, are seek
ing to galn-the support of the 15,000,00
depositors of iae nation by false argu
ments. He criticised the motives of
men who have urged the adoption of
a bank guarantee law and ridiculed its
effectiveness in the state where it has
been tried. 4
The central argument of Mr. Laugh
lin's address was that the banks of
the country already have a guarantee
fund, consisting of the capital stock,
surplus, and liability of the stockhold
ers. He declares that the stockhold
ers will try to avoid wildcat banking
because of the great risk of enormous
loss to themselves. Under the pres
ent system there is a loss of only one-twenty-sixth
of one per cent; uitiler
the universal guarantee ( system, this
Iosb would be enormously increased
through the operation of wildcat banks
and unscrupulous bankers.
Mr. Laughlln further urged that it
is impossible to provide a guarantee
.fund large enough to insure immediate
return of deposits. This, would entail
the withdrawal from business of so
large an amount of money as would
seriously interfere with the nation's
trade. The b'ost that could be hoped
for would be ultimate return and this
is sufficiently guaranteed under the
present arrangement, in the opinion
of the speaker,
Coy Burnett and. Roy Meeker, law
ox 1910, nre not in school this year
.on account of business affairs.

NEBRA8KA TO MEET WORTHY
ENEMY IN DEBATE.
SCHEDULE OF DEBATES FINISHED
Squad Will Be Completed In About a
Week and Teams Will Be Chosen
In a Month Active Work To
Among those interested In Ne
braska debating, there Is a scrong feel
ing that this year Nebraska will havo
to meet foes worthy of her boBt efforts.
Nebraska will meet in debate, the
Universities of Illinois and Wisconsin.
Nebraska hag met each of tneso
schools in Joint debate but once before
and was beaten by both of them,
though only by a narrow margin, it
is felt that it is now up to Nobraska
to Wi.e out the former disgrace.
Tne University of Illinois is a school
having a thousand moro students than
are available at the University of No
braska, while Wisconsin claims an en
rollment of about Beven hundred more.
The University of Illinois nas always
been strong in debating, and the Uni
versity of Wisconsin has been holding
her famous society debates for nearly
forty years. The university of Wis
consin nas already chosen her speak
ers, and thus, while she may not be
able to develop the question quite as
thoroughly as Nebraska, her speakers
will possibly appear moro pollBhed and
make a better appearance on the plat
form. Schedule of Debates.
r Trotessor Fogg, "Secretary of "thVDe-
bating League, announces that tho de
bates of tho league will bo held as fol
lows: Iowa City WlsconBin-Iowa.
Judges to Be Chosen.
Judges for the Nebraska-Illinois de
bato will bo chosen from Iowa. Judges
for the Nebraska-Wisconsin debate
wll bo chosen irom Illinois and Minne
sota. The plan by vhlch the judges
are chosen Is as follows: A list of
twenty-four judges are submitted for
every debate to tho entertaining uni
versity, within a week after receiving
tho list, the visiting university sends
to the entertaining university a list of
six Judges cnosen from the twenty-four
names submitted." The entertaining
university sends to the visiting univer
sity a list of twelve names also chosen
from tho twenty-four. Each of the two
universities then arranges its oppon
ents list in the order of its choice,
challenging those whom it has good
reasons tor rejecting. The secretary
of the debating board of tho entertain
ing university then invites the two
names at the top' of the list of twelve
and one name from tne top of the
list of six.
The selection of the remaining six
members of the debating squad will be
chosen in about a week. If the plans
of Professor 'ogg are carried out' tho
two teams will be chosen about the
last of October.
t The squad chosen last spring uas as
yet had no meting this fall., It is likely
that the first meeting will be called
for next Monday.
