"Neither judging of debates by the
audience or by a group of expert jud-
ges tends to form the ideal conduction
of a debate," said Prof. L. M. Eich of
the public speaking department when
Interviewed regarding the conduction
of the Oxford-Michigan debate. "The
ideal method is that in which no de-
cision is given."
Profesor Eich stated that no-decis-
ioa debates tend to remove the strain
of the debate which consequently
v ould improve the speeches of those
partaking. This method was adopted
at Michigan several years ago but.
proved a failure because of the lack
of competitive spirit in the dpbates,
In regard to judging debates by the
au ence, Professor Eich stated that
thl method was preferable to the
iteliod of judging by a selected
group. "When the audience judges,
the speaker tends to become more in-
timate with the audience and talks di-
rectly to them rather than to the jud-
ges," he said.
Although this method is especially
popular in England, it has not yet ds- I
placed the system of expert judging
preferred by debating organizations
in this country.

Engineering Expert Discusses Many
Points For Improvement in
Technical Education.
W. E. Wickenden, in an address be-
fore the engineering faculty at a din-
ner held last night at the Union,
pointed out how engineering educa.
tion can be improved. He mentioned
in that connection several points
based on his observations and re-
search work as director of the sur-
vey of engineering education. This
survey is being made under the aus-
pices of the American Society for the!
promotion of engineering education
and of the Carnegie foundation.
"What engineering education may
become in the future will find its roots
in the past," said Mr. Wickenden. .
He then mentioned a few factors
which would improve engineering
education, among which were the ex-
amination of the student presenting
himself to the engineering schools,
and the determination of the desire
! whoi causes the student to enter
the engineering school, the location of
the causes of failure in the schools,
the process by which graduate engin-
'ers are introduced in'to the profes-
sional life, and the inauguration of a
faculty personal department in the
educational institutions.
"Seventy five of the engineering,
colleges in the country have begun
the study of engineering education
by organizing committees patterned
after the committee organized at this
university two years ago, and which
was unique in the study of engineer-
ing education," said Mr. Wickenden
in the opening remarks of his speech.
In concluding his talk he stated
that American industry is exposing
itself to slow suicide by neglecting
the forward march of technology. He
also pointed out that a closer rela-
tionship 'is necessary between the en -
gineering education institutions andl
the engineering professions.
The medical, dental and law profes-
sions, he said, are more closely re-
lated to their educational institu-
tions than are the engineers, and in
comparison with England and some
of the European countries, America'
is backward in this respect.l

Cornell Meets

After a string of 24 conse tive
victories Cornell was defeated today
by Williams college by the score of
14-7. Cornell for the past three years
has succeeded in defeating some of
the strongest eastern teams and has
been considered by many the cham-

The defeat yesterday by Willlam.

Balloting For Head of Yearling Class
Under Charge of S. C. A.
Freshmen literary students will re-
cast their ballots for the presidency
of that class between 8 and 4 o'clock
tomorrow, the candidates for the of-
fice being Henry Grinnell and Wayne
Schroeder, both of whom were nomi-
nated at the last assembly of the
class. The voting will be done at a
ballot box which will be located in
front of the library.
A list of the freshmen literary class
will be used and the name of every
voter checked off by those in charge
of the balloting. This procedure will
eliminate any possiblity of a recur-
rence of the tampering with the bal- i
lots at, the election last Wednesday.
In order to make sure that a strict-
ly impartial election will take place,
the Student council has placed en-
tire charge of the ballotng in the
hands of the Student Christian as-
sociation. The committee from the
latter organization appointed to di-
rect the voting is H. L. Hale, '26,
Maurice P. Rhodes, '25L, John H. El-
liott, '26, Eugene L. Dunne, '25, and
harry B. McCobb, '25.
Any student having less than 24
hours of credit, and only those meet-
ing this qualification, will be allowed
to vote in this election, aceording. to
officials. A list of literary freshmen
has been secured from the regis-
trar's office and the names of those
wishing to vote will be checked care-
fully on this list.
Returns from the election will be
given out at Lane hall Monday night.y
The keen interest which has been
aroused due to the annulment of the
last election will cause a heavy vote,
officials say; and the final count will
end late Monday evening.
"We are depending entirely upon the
honor of the students in this elec-
tion," stated Perry M. Hayden, '25,
president of the Student Christian as-
sociation, "and we hope that due re-
gard will be taken of our trust."

In the Liberal document allusions
are equally scanty but in the Con-
servative manifesto, following the
Tory tradition, the empire and for-E
eign relations are given greater at-
tention, but still are overshadowed
by social and economic questions. In
reference to foreign affairs, Mr. Bald-
win pronounced his party for "coop-
eration in all matters admitting of.
common action with the U. S.," and
for the support or strengthening of
the League of Nations on practical
Trade Issue Gone
Withr regard to defense, he says
that the Unionists, if returned to
power, will have to "examine care- I
fully the position in which the de-
fenses of the Empire have been leftj
by the present administration," andx
while favoring any practical propos-
als for the general limitation of arma-
ments, must "scrutinize carefully, in
conjunction with the Dominiens, the
far reaching cominittments and im-
plications of the scheme recently put
f'orweard at Geneva."
None of the manifestoes touch upon
any questions of Egypt or Iralk. The
competition between the three part-
ies is clearly on the ground of social
and economic reforms and on these
alone. After the result.of the general
elections a year ago it is not surpris-
ing to find that the questions of free
trade versus protection has also al-
most vanished from the picture.
