Plans for the Michigan High School
Debating league have been completed,
and the schedule for this year's de-
bates has been drawn up by the Ex-
tension division of the University.-
More than 140 schools throughout the
state have joined the league and will
compete for the state title. The ques-
tion which will be debated this year
is: "Resolved, That the United States,
and Canada jointly should construct
the deep-water way to the Atlantic by
way of the St. Lawrence river, as
proposed in the report of the. Interna-
tional joint commission, submitted toj
Congress, January, 1922."
The first debate will be held on
Dec. 8. Ann Arbor high school will
debate,with the Ypsilanti highschool
at that time. A series of; four pre-'
liminary debates will be held before
any of the elimination takes plate.
After these debates, teams represent-
ing 16 different high "chools will be
chosen. Elimination will continue un-
til two teams remain. These two teams
will meet in Ann Arbor next May to
decide the state championship. At
that time the visiting debaters will be
entertained by the University Orator-
ical association and bronze cups will
be given to both the state champion
and the runners up:
Carl G. Brandt, of the public speak-j
ing department, is state manager of
the league and has completed the
schedule that has been sent out to
the different teams of the state.
The title was won last year by Al-
legan with Durand high school the
runner-up. Each member of the
league may have two teams, an af-
firmative and a negative, but only one
team may debate at one time.. The
general plan is to have the teams de-
bate once at home and once away.
