The debate with Northwestern and
Chicago made ~up Michigan's part in
the Central League debate for 1916.
Michigan's affirmative team for the
question, resolved, that Congress
should adopt the literacy test for all
European immigration, met the North-
western team at Ann Arbor, January
21. The Varsity team was composed
of Wilbur M. Brucker, '16L, Joseph R.
Cotton, '16, and Alexander Stoddard,
'11L. Michigan won by a two to one
decision. On the same evening at the
University of Chicago Michigan's neg-
ative team met the University of Chi-
cago team. The Michigan men were
as follows: William J. Goodwin, '6L,
Nathan E. Pinney, '16, and Paul V.
Ramsdell, '16. Chicago won the de-
bate by a decision of two to one.
Michigan's part in the Mid-West De-
bating league consisted this year of
the debates with Wisconsin and Illin-
ois. The yellow and blue team against
Wisconsin, composed of William T.
Adams, '17, Irving S. Toplon, '17, and
R. S. hunter, '16L, won the affirma-
tive side of the debate, resolved, that
the federal government should own
and operate all public service tele-
graph and telephone systems in the
United States, Michigan's negative,
composed of George C. Caasen, '17L,
William E. Olds, '16, and Kenneth M.
Stevens, '16L, met the Illinois team at
Urbana, Ill., on March 31, and were
judged the superior by a two to one
The men in the oratorical contests
have also been very successful. In
the university prohibition contest held
on March 20, George D. Cast, grad.,
won, first and therefore represented
the university in the state prohibition
contest held on April 20. Being the
first place man in that contest he will
uow represent the university and the
state of Michigan in the national con-
test to be held at Indianapolis, on
June 26.
In the annual university contest for
the Kaufman prizes and the Chicago
Alumni Medal, N. Earl Pinney, '16,
took first place, winning the $100 prize
and the medal. A. A. Levine, '18, won
the second honor with the prizes of
$50. Having taken first in this con-
test, Pinney represented the univer-
sity in the annual contest of the North-
ern Oratorical league held at Urbana,
Ill., on May 5, among seven of the
large western universities. The North-
ern Oratorical League contest is the
hardest to win of any that Michigan
enters. In an unusually strong con-
test Pinney took third place. Michi-
gan has always been right up in the
first rank in these contests but each
time some university has brought for-
ward a phenomenal speaker and nosed
us out for the victory one or two
In the annual university peace con-
test held December 18, ClarenceaL.
'denser, grad., was the victor and
represented the university in the State
peace contest, taking third place.
In the annual cup debate between
the four literary societies, Webster,
Jeffersonian, Alpha Nu and Adelphi,
the final honors were won this year
by theWebster team, Miss Dorothy
V. McCormick, '18L, who is the only
woman who has ever appeared on a
debating team in this university, spoke
on the winning team.
"The Servant in the House," pre-
sented January 27, and the three one-
act Irish plays, "Riders to the Sea,"
"Land of Heart's Desire," and "Shad-
ow of the Glen," given June 7, were
