Cambridge debaters, upholding the
affirmative side of the question "Re-
solved, that this house pities its
grandchildren" against the Michigan
debate team last night inM Hill audi-
torium were declared victors by a
vote of the audience following the de-
bate. Cambridge received 573 votes
while Michigan was given 205.
About 2,500 were in attendance at
the debate. Sen. James Couzens pre-
sided as chairman, and Thomas C.
Dixon, president of the Oratorical as-
sociation, under whose auspices the
international debate was staged, gave
the address of welcome to the visiting
Michael Ramsay sounded the open-
ing note of the debate as the first
speaker when he stated emphatically
that man's "power over nature" is
leading to his degeneracy. He point-
ed out that the rate at which science
has progressed in the past is nothing
to what it will progress in the future.
"In order to have a stable civiliza-
tion with the progress of science" he
said 'ran must offset the disadvan-
tages of scientific progress with a
spiritual progress."
Ramsay explained that the great
physical comforts and conveniences
that science has given to man are
only serving to cause his physical
decline. "In the Roman empire, he
said, civilization declined because the
Romans ceased to work, they used
slaves to do all the work--man in the
future will use the instruments pro-
duced by science to do his work and
will himself degenerate.
Elmer Salzman, '27L, first speaker
for the University, presented argu-
nlents against the contentions of
Ramsay and pointed out to the au-
dience the advantages of science. HeI
talked of the development of sanita- i
tion, playgrounds, and physical educa-1
tion. In refuting the Cambridgej
speaker's contention in regard to
liberty, Salzman said "Science is giv-
ing people liberty rather than depriv-
ing them of it. Man has a freedom
today to choose his own occupation

Tonight Minne Maddern Fiske,

Powers, and a number of others will
offer Richard Brinsley Sheridan's
comedy of manners, "The Rivals", at
the Whitney theater, signifying the
opering of the annual series of the
Michigan theater league.
This production, under the manage-
ment of Hugh Ford and George C.
Tyler, toured the whole country last{
i year, with the same cast. It is one
of the plays that make up the con-
tribution of the theater to the Ameri-
can sesquicentennial year, the sec-
ond of which, "The School for Scan-
dal", also by Sheridan, will open very
soon in Philadelphia.

It was in the absence of actable
native drama of the Colonial periodl
that the American stage turned to
Richard Brinsley Sheridan for its in-
spiration in the celebration of the
150th anniversary of our beginning as
a nation. Sheridan is recognizedi as
one of the most brilliant dramatici
writers of the eighteenth century, and
was also a man of unusual senatorial
ability in the English parliament, be-
ing a contemporary of Burke, Pitt, and
Fox. He was a strong adherent of the
cause of the American colonies when
that question was engaging the atten-
tion of British statesmen. "The Ri-
vals," his first dramatic work, was
orriginally produced Jan. 17, 1775,
only a few months before the begin-
ning of the revolution.
