And William C. Bishop, '28,
Speak At Madisont
(Special to The Daily.)
MADISON, March 16.-Wisconsin
defeated Michigan in an intercolleg-t
iate debate here tonight to mark the
conclusion of the thirteenth annual
series of mid-Western debates.
The Michigan team was composedl
of Paul Franseth, '29, William C.
Bishop, .'28, and Jarl Adeer, '29. The
met spoke in the order named. Prof.
James M. O'Neill of the University of
Michigan speech department accomp-
anied the team on the trip here. ]
"Resolved that the present policy
of the United States in Centralc
America should be condemned," wasc
the question discussed in the debate.
Prof. Wayne Morris of the speech de-
partment of the University of Minne-
sota judged the 'contest.
Franseth, giving the first negative
speechwdeclared that the present pol-
icy of the United States is necessary.
To substantiate his contention hei
pointed out that there are foreign
interests in the Central American
states, iparticuarly in' Nicaragua,
which must be protected either by the
United States or by the foreign pow-
ers concerned. Then too,he went on,'
th extensive financial investments in
the Carribean by United States inter-
ests demand protection.
Following Franseth in the negative
lineup was Bishop, whose chief dec-
laration was that the present policy
of the United States has resulted in
economic benefits to Central America.1
As evidence to support this contention,
he pointed to the many. American in-
vestments that have been made in the
region. From these he drew the con-
clusion that the effect of these invest-l
ments had been to improve the econ-
omic situation of the countries in-
volved and to develop their commerce
and national resources.
Andeer concluded the constructive
case for Michigan. His argument
was centered around an effort to2
demonstrate that intervention on the,
part o2 the United States has been
of political benefit to Central Amer-
ica. 'To support this contention, he
nzaintained that the presence of
American troops and officials hadt
had a steadying influence in the de-t
velopment of the organs of sel-gov-2
ernment in the none too stable Latin1
American countries.I
Illinois won its first intercollegiate
debate in Ann Arbor in almost tenl
years and its second consecutive vic-
tory from Michigan in the past two
years when Prof. Howard Woodward, t
head of the department of speech at

decision over Michigan's affirmative

esting debates. John E. Webster, '30,
Lawrence Hartwig, '31, and Elliott

The entire debate centered about
a spirited clash over the armed in-
tervention of the United S'tates in

Central America. The Illinois team

WASHINGTON, March 16.-Presi-
dent Coolidge believes that the United
States can be helpful to Nicaragua
by assisting the people of that country
to choose its government, in spite of
the action of the Nicaraguan house in
rejecting a few days ago the McCoy
bill providing for supervision of the
coming election by the marine corps.
This view was reflected late in the
day by an announcement from the
navy department that two additional
battalions of marines had been ord-
ered to the little Central American
republic to reinforcetthe 2,700 al-
ready on duty there.
Commenting on this new develop-
ment Secretary Wilbur said the addi-'
tional marine forces were to be used
primarily for overseeing the coming
election and not for action against
General Sandino, although the troops
may be employed to further the gen-
eral activities of the marine in Nicar-
While President Coolidge doubts
that the legislation embodied in the
McCoy bill was absolutely necessary
to the execution of the Stimson agree-
ment, providing for supervision of the
election, he feels that it would have
been desirable.
