After a hot fight, the Oratorical
board decided~not to allow the former
ec- Adelphi debating society to assume
vas the name of "The University House of
iad Representatives," which the society
had voted to adopt on reorganizing.

society call itself "The Adelphi House
his of Representatives," and guaranteed
ay, that the title "House of Representa-
-y. tives" would notbe e thizar .fonr ue"
rr7iny of the other literary societies.
ke- As a result of the change made by
sill Adelphi,raso mplete change of policy
may take place in the debating socie-
at ties, several plans being discussed by
est the Oratorical board. In the past, the
societies have served mainly to train
men for the Varsity debates, while it
is now proposed to have them train
men in extemporaneous speaking, and
to take the debating preliminaries out
ed of the societies, establishing tryouts
ext open to all.
