Thinking on her toes is one of the characteristics sopho
more Gigi Hall said she acquired by participating on the
UNL debate team.
Hall, who said she spends. 20 to 30 hours a week on
'debate, is one of 25 students who travels with the debate
team on weekends. About 65 students have participated in
debate this semester, according to Coach James Klumpp,
assistant professor of speech.
The debate team has gone to 10 tournaments and has
won six trophies, including a first-place speaker trophy for
UNL's Tom Kauf at the University of Wisconsin at Osh
Kosh, and first-place trophy for the Mark Adams-Kirk Baird

meets, debaters (in teams of two) each give a four
and an eight-minute speech on this year's topic, "Land
Use." Each is rated on a scale of 1 to 30 by coaches of
other teams participating in the meet.
One team debates against another team, and each mem
ber is ranked from first to fourth.

In extemporaneous speaking the student is given three
topics from which he may choose and must prepare a five
to seven minute speech in a half-hour.
Debate is one of the few areas of academic competition
between colleges, and debaters have the advantage of re
ceiving instruction from other college professors, Klumpp
said. After a debater is rated at a meet, a critique by each of
the judges is given to the student.
Members of the debate team conduct practice debates
about three times a week, according to Klumpp. Each mem

Hall said she has about one-and-a-half reference file
drawers full of cards which are taken to every meet.
She is receiving two hour credit for debate, the most a
student can get in a semester. "
"Debate has definitely hurt my grade point average this
semester," said Hall, who had a 4.0 average.
However, the advantages outweigh the disadvantages,
said Hall, a journalism major. As well as learning how to use
the library, she said she has learned a lot about decision
making. No opinions
"You realize that nothing is noncontroversial," she said.
"And you learn to question everything that is said.
"You start to have no opinion on anything, because you
see so many sides to it," she added.
Klumpp said he thinks debate will help a student in any
career, because it teaches him to be organized and make a
good argument and presentation.
The UNL debate team, whose budget of about $6,000 is
financed by the College of Arts and Sciences, will host the
Cornhusker debate Feb. 20 through 22. Klumpp said he
expects more than 33 schools to attend.
