KANSAS DEBATERS BEATEN
Nebraska Team Gets a Unanimous De
cision over Southern Opponents
, , The last great interpollegiate debate
was held In the university chapel
Thursday of last week. This was one
of the most satisfactory contests of the
season. It was a clear victory for Ne
braska, though Kansas did good work.
The question discussed was whether
the growth of large corporations was a
menace to democratic institutions, and
the subject was handled with ability.
The debaters were well prepared and
touched the real substance of the issue.
Nebraska had the affirmative and was
