After the debates on Friday there will
be two more elimination series before
the state championship debate, which
will be held early in May in Hill audi-

tion series of debates, the following
pairings have been made for the con-

first named school has the affirmative,

be discussed is "Resolved: That the
United States government should own,
the coal mines."
The series of preliminarydebates
began last fall with more than 230
high schools throughout the state en-
tered. Of these, the 64 schools with
the highest number of points scoredI
in the four preliminary contests quali-
ed for the elimination series for the
state title. Each of these schools will
receive a University of Michigan wall
plaque from the Detroit Free Press,
and the members of the teams will
have their picture appear in the roto-
gravue edition of an early issue.
. The winning team in the final de-
bate will be presented with the Uni-
versity trophy for excellence in de-
bating, which is awarded by the ex-
tension department. This is a large}
silver cup suitably engraved. A simi-
lar, but smaller, award will be given
the team finishing second. The in-
dividual members of the two teams}
will receive gold watches from the De-
troit Free Press, as a recognition of
individual forensic ability.
