foo this evening In a debate with
three forensic artists from the Univer

The question which the Nebraska
irien have been working on ever since
the opening of college is "Resolved,
That the United States should adopt
a policy of Shipping Subsidies." From
the standpoint of the local team the
issues in this question have been run
to the ground, and the crowd of loyal
Nobraskans who have already pur
chased their seats have in store for
them a discussion that will not only
bo interesting, but enlightening.
