Net Friday evening, October the 30th,
the Union Boys Debating Club will cel
ebrate their decennial anniversary, hav
ing already enjoyed a decade of unbroken
existence. This auxiliary of Union So
ciety has kept the "sacred fires" of debate
burning with ever-increasing glow. Sis
ter club after sister club has risen, en
joyed an ephemeral existence, and died.
Tuis club alone has lived and increased
in numbers and in efficiency. From it,
all the other like organizations in our
university have sprung. Within its
ranks was first fostered the spirit of joint
debate. To its aggressive policy is due
a long series of successful intercollegiate
debates, and in its inspiration the pres
ent University Debating Association
traces its birth.
Union Society has adjourned in honor
of the celebration. All other literary
organizations and fraternities are most
cordially invited to be present. The
tact that Chancellor MacLean and Ros
coo Pound are to deliver the anniversary
addresses insures the scholarly character
of the program. The following is the
program for the evening.
