Contest Is Very Close and Judges
.Have a Hard Time In Making
Any Decision Professor
Fogg Presides.
"With, one of the worst stoYmB of the
season raging outside, the second an
nual debnte of thp Nebraska High
School Debating league was held last
evening in Momorial hall. Owing to
the deep interest which the dobato
has aroused all over the state a fair
ly large crowd braved the elements
and aided by their presence in mak
ing the debate one of the most suc
cessful of the kind that has ever
been held in Nebraska. '
The decision of the judges gave
Clayton Radcllffo, of, Sidney, first
place, Paul Good,' of Wahoo second
place, and Harvey Hess, of tfebron,
third place. The judges took consid
erable time to mako their decision and
announced that the final result was
not unanimous.
Professor Fogg of tho university,
president of the league, presided and
spoke briefly before introducing the
speakers of the evening. Ho told of
the purpose of the league and tho
work that It was doing throughout
the state, and declared that next
year he believed that at least sixty
schools would take part in tho do
bates. The Question for Debate.
The question which was debated
vyas, "Resolved, that disputes botweon
'Capital and labor in the railroad busi
ness should bo settled by boards of
arbitration with compulsory powers."
Three members of the university fac
ulty, Professor Fling, Professor .Le
Rosslgnol nnd Professor Vernier act
ed as the judges. Eight speakers took
tho affirmative and three tho nega
tive. The debate was unusually snappy
and clear cut for a high school con
test and showed a great deal of deep
study. ProfeBBor Fogg declared that
he considered it the best debate tho
league had over had as It showed .the
most real work and clearest grasp
of the question. Several of tho de
flators showed unusual ability as'
speakers and will in time mako poW'
erful debaters.
Synopsis of Arguments.
Mark 0, Hargrave of Wymorq,
opened tho debate for the affirmative.
He presented a table showing that
wages were higher under compulsory
arbitration than without and, contend
ed that compulsory arbitration would

and preventing strikes.
Paul Good of Wahoo followed for
the negative and declared that com
pulsory arbitration had been tried
only in New -Zealand and that con
ditions hero and there wore entire
ly different. Ho contended that pub
lic sentiment did not demand compul
sory arbitration. 1 ' 1
