Members of Phi Alpha Tau Back of
An Enterprise to Form Oppo
sition to the Students' De
1 bating Club.
A now student debating club 1b tho
probable outcome of a meeting to be
held next Wednesday evening. The
session Is more or less shrouded In
mystery, but It is understood that the
members of the debating frntogilty,
Phi Alpha Tau. are largely back of the
enterprise. Among the irlmo movers
are H. B. English, Jl. C. MnrcolliiB, aifdi
A. M. Oberfelder Is another who has
a hand in the enterprise.
For pevoral days there have been
rumors of a new debating organiza
tion which would attempt to enter tho
field now dominated by the Students'
Debating Club. Tho rumors woro at
first extremely vague and supposed
promoters of the scheme declined to
discuss tho matter For somo reason
they seemed to think that secrecy was
demanded In the organization of such
a representative organization as they
wished to found. It has leaked out
however, that Lhc first meeting of pros
pective members of the club will bo
held Wednesday and that announce
ment of Us scopo will ho made immed
iately thereafter.
Details of Plan.
While no one Is. vllllng to acini owl-
edge tho leadership of the movement,
several of tho details ot Its proposed
organization have been learned from
excellent authority. The club will
be limited in Its membership, twenty-five
being tho probable maximum.
Membership will bo by vote of the
'membors, tho exact porcentago noc
essary to a favorable ballot not yet
-being decided. It la understood that
tho membership' provision of tho pro
posed constitution has caused somo
disturbance In the? ranks. Somo dosiro
a majority or two-thirds yoto to per
mit the entrance of candidates, while
otherB would seek Jo Install tho black
ball system.
The purpose of the club wlll bo to
offer frequent practice In actual de
bate. For this purpose the members
will debate with one another, and if
possjble, lntor-socioty debates will-bo
held with , tho fitu dents.' Debating Club.
At other- schools of tho Central Do-
bating logguo It has been noticed that
the (nter-soclety scheme has worked
well. At Wisconsin In particular It
has been highly doygjpned. In tho
badger institution tho ability to win
'thoTlnter-soclety-dobator'lB considered
almost as great an hoiibr as its mem
bership in tho intor-colloglate team,.
Have No Objection.
Members of tho Students' Debating
Club said yesterday that tho now or
ganization would help rather than hln
dor', the older 'club. With two clubs
intor-soclety debates could bo develop
ed In a mannei4 which would give both
orguijjzatlons life. ' It Is extromSoly
hard, say tho Student's Club men, to
nmlptaTn life In ndobatfng club which
has no opponent. Competition would
. rovivo tho interest to a largo extent.
'Tho new club wllr-take-in freshmen
as well as upper classmen and will,
Hi fact, seek to dovolop debating Inter
dst among the freshmen. Among its
charter raembersvlll bo several freBh
raoif who have made good in high
school debating,1 although some of
thorn have not taken pijyt'ln university'
work. , ,
Willie Phi Alpha Tau Is largely re
sponsible for tho lfo of tho now en
terprise, It is claimed that tho fiater-v
. nlty wlll'ln no "way seek to control
thp new organization. Profo'ssorTbg
is understood to bo heartily back of
the Hchcmo aird to be assisting In tho
formation of Kb organization.

Professor 8tates IKat System Needs
a RevlshTm
In a recent lecture, before one of
Ills cIubbcs, a prominent professor at
the university stated that thorc wob
a needed revision in tho present sys
tem in our modern teaching methods.
Tho remedy was thejieed of abolish
ing superannuated teachers and put
ting them on a pension. Tho pity of
the American public wishcB to keep
people on the teaching forc6 who have
out-lived their usefulness, but Btlll re
tain their positionR because tho public
docs not feel financially able to sup
port them on the pension system.
That the age of service Is alBo to bo
taken Into consideration but at the
same time .keeping all things equal,
talent and ability should becolisldered
before length of sorvlco If modern and
up-to-date methods are to rule" In tho
dispensation of knowledge.
