'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.
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

v-nnestlon-TJiat the .movoraont of

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
"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.
