NEBRASKA DEFEATS WISCONSIN AND ILLINOIS IN DEBATES 'Nebraska defeated Illinois at Ur bana, thus winning both contests in the Central Debating league. The Cornhuskers had the negative side of the "closed shop" question. The members of the team were. G. N.oster, A. N. Raymond and C. L. Rein. With clear, concise arguments, and with a rebuttal which struck a death blow at tho arguments and evidence put forth by tho Univer sity or WlaconBln dobators, tho af firmative ' team representing tho University of Nebraska and the Closed Shop defeated their op ponents in ono of tho nioBt brilli ant forensic contests ever fought on tho iplatform of Memorial hall. Analyzing I iho arguments .pre sented by thd-Wisconsin men, the Nebraska speakers in their rebut tal brought out tho weaknesses of tho debating of the men from tho Badger state and won tho debate, In tho last three speeches which they made. Wonv Through Rebuttal. It was the rebuttal which brought victory to tho banner of Scarlet and Cream. With a steady step tho Cornhuskers marched on over throwing argument after argument 'hrnueht un by tho negatlvo in the v-nnestlon-TJiat the .movoraont of . - VZr1 T7 ! J." A if Www organized laDor ior me uiuucu. buuii should have the support or pumic opinion," and by a decision of two to one from tho judgeB tho Corn huskers who composed tho affirma tive team retrieved tho dual defeat administered to tho Scarlet and Cream in debating circles in 1901), by Minnesota and Iowa. The Debate. On account of tho absence of Governor Shallonberger In Ken tucky, tho debate was presided ovor by Will Owen Jones, editor of tho State Journal. A few selec tions by tho cadet band opened tho program, which was followed by an .introduction of the presiding officer of tho evening by Professor Cald well. In a fow words Mr. Jones ex plained tho time limit of speakers and introduced B. C. MarcelluB, who opened tho contest for Nebraska. Marcellus outlined the question and cited somo of tho evidence In favor of the closed shop. He said' In part: "Today, because of competition, capitalists aro forced to combine, and labor also because of unre stricted competition has been- com pelled to. take the samo steps of or ganization. Collective action or bargaining must be tho principal function of all unions, and this has secured tho. closo. jdahon. principle. Tho closed shop does not mean. 'a , closed union, for It allows tho,. non , union man to join the union. So fog three reasons tho closed shop should receive tho support of (pub lic opinion; first, because it bene fits labor as a whole; second, be cause it insures collective bargain ing; and third, because it brings to tho laborer real liberty." Harry V. Melssner of Wisconsin was tho first speaker for the nega tive. Ho said in part: "Wo must consider tho union man and tho people of tho nation. Tho negatlvo recognize the union. Wo do not consider tho open shop as fair. Tho success of trado rota tion rests wholly on tho fairness of tho employed, and under tho. closed shop; labor: is Acon trolled. 'By union men, who exclude non-union men, For thlB reason wo support a mixod shop, whoro tho employer may hire or dlschargo mon, but In which tho wngo scalo and othor conditions aro regulated by organ ized labor. Bccauso of tho closed Bhop tho unions nro recognized by tho public as urijiiBt to individual labor and tho union is placed ahead of skill and efficiency. "Tho closed shop shutB out non union men, while tho mixed shop does not. Contrary to tho conten tion of tho affirmative, tho closed shop 1b not necessary to the main tenance of tho union." The Tlhr Speaker. Tho third speaker was A. M. Oberfeider for Nebraska. Aftor a short bit of rebuttal ho pointed out three favorable arguments In which he said In part: "Tho cloBOd shop should receive tho support of public opinion, first, because it benefits the laboring masBes as a whole; Bocpnd, because it will promote industrial peace and Insure' 'collective bargaining, which is caused by an ngreemont between tho employer and tho la borer; and third, bccauso tho pub lic at large would bo bonofitted." Raymond W. Bell was tho second speakpr for Wisconsin. Ho out lined his arguments into three partB; he emphasized the mixed sWGp as compared with tho closed ntiop, ;nd said In part: "That tnorestnction or approiF tlces was a marked fault of tho closed shop, thus tho supply of skilled labor was decreased and ability was forced "to the. ranks of tho unskilled. "Exorbitant initiation fees were charged, leading to abuse and mo nopoly; and third, that tho unions squabbled between themselves, thus causing obstructions and dif ficulties to bo plnced In tho way of good labor results." , The Rebuttal. The rebuttal of both teams was tho exciting part' of tho contest. Wisconsin attempting during this tlmo to dofend hero position and Nebraska overthrowing all tho evi dence advanced by their opponents. Through quotations from author ities, Nebraska proved that tho closed shop encouraged apprentice ship, and that It was tho employ ers who caused It to decrease. The Nebraska mon showed how tho closed shop would continue and that the mixed shop was only pre sumed to continue with no assur ance that It would. Pending tho decision of tho judges, tho crowd, which was one of tho boat at a debato ovor hold here, waited anxiously, and when It was announced that Nebraska had won, cheers from all parts of tho hall broke out. Tho judges woro: HbTT."TfankrW7- Garst of Coon Rapids, Iowa; Prof. Prank I Horrlott of Drako unlvor slty, and Prof. Benjamin P. Sham baugh of the University of Iowa. B. H.
