series in the four preliminary con-
tests. Both are in the championship
dlebate as a result of winning four
contests inthe elimination series.
Last year Ann Ar~bor and Albion
compete in the championship debate
which was won by Ann Arbor by a
unanimous decision. Ann Arbor failed
to qualify for the elimination series
this year because of the loss of three
members of the championship team.
Albion succeeded in reaching the se-

And this in spite of the fact that America,
in fifty years, has telephones every where
