Ormand Drake, Howard Simon,
And Paul Franseth, Compose
Winning Michigan Team
Marking an inconsistency in the
argument of the opposing case and
pointing out that weakness through
three rebuttal speeches, Michigan's
affirmative defeated the Indiana
negative in an intercollegiate de-
bate last night in Hill auditorium.
Prof. E. W. Miller of Wooster col-
lege, Wooster, Ohio, was the single
expert judge and gave the decision.
The Paris Pact, now under con-
sideration by the Senate committee
on foreign relations, furnished the
subject for discussion. A second
debate upon the same topic will be
held tonight at Columbus between
the Varsity negative and the Ohio
State affirmative.
Was Close Contest
Last night's contest was one o
the closest and best debated heard
in Ann Arbor in recent years, the
advantage seeming to shift from
side to side with each speech. Ex-
cellent speaking combined with
continued clashes upon the issues
featured the argument.
Ormand J. Drake, '3Ed, Howard
Simon, '30, and Paul Franseth, '29,
were the members of the winning
Michigan team. John B. Newlin,
Emmanuel H. Baugh, and Joseph
V. Hefferman were the Indiana de-
In opening the affirmative case,
Drake characterized the Paris Pact,
though not a perfect instrument,
as the first and a very important
step toward world ;peace. "The
pact is nothing more than an ex-
pression of a universal will toward
peace," he declared.
Newlin Opens Negative
Newlin was the first Indiana
speaker. He argued that the na-
tions of the world had participated
in nothing more than a hypocri-
tical act in signing the treaty, be-
cause they had every reason to de-
sire the entanglement of the Uni-
ted States in Europe n affairs, and
because Europe, economically de-
pendent upon the United States,
would hardly desire to oppose any
American proposal.
Simon in continuing the discus-
sion for the affirmative pointed out
that the treaty has been received
with approval by world wide public
opinion. It was his belief that "the
pact will create international good-
will, clarifying the position of each
signatory power toward every
Baugh Discusses Defense
"The pact constitutes a solemn
sanction of all wars of exception
and reservation under which any
nation miay wage a war of self-
defense, reserving to itself the defi-
nition of self-defense," Baugh said
in delivering the second negative
"The nations of the World in de-
manding the right to wage wars of
self-defense must justify them-
selves before the World in waging
such wars," Franseth argued in re-
ply to Baugh's speech. While de-
claring that "public opinion will
determine the destinies of nations,"
he also cited the promotion of

friendly economic relations as an
addition benefit to be gained from
the Kellogg-Briand treaty.
Hefferman Closes Arguments
In concluding the constructive
arguments, Hefferman, the thirdr
Indiana speaker, declared, "The
whole thesis of this pact is the
preservation of the status quo,
which if maintained must result
in grave injustices to vast portions
of the human race."
Contending that the treaty is
contrary to traditional American
policy, he then advocated the addi-
tion of a Monroe Doctrine reserva-
,ion. It was the inconsistency be-
tween his speech accepting the
treaty with reservations and the
two preceeding negative speeches
condemning the treaty that was
recognized and repeated by the
affirmative throughout all of the
rehttal sneeches.

Hopes For Royal Patient's Recovery
Rise As Both Operations
Prove Successful
(fly Associated Press)
LONDON, Dec. 12-With the
heir to the throne once more at
home, the famous surgeons of
the kingdom today made two
desperate efforts to save the
life of King George. They per-
formed two successful opera-
tions, one this morning, and
another more serious, tonight.
The condition of His Majes-
ty, was considered satisfactory
and the hopes of his people for
his recovery are rapidly rising
from the despondency of the
last two critical days.
This morning a puncture was
made to remove some of the
pleural fluid around the base
of the right lung. It was in-
dicated that further drainage 7
would be required. The bulle-
tin which was issued hours aft-
er the operation said: "The
slight improvement in the
King's condition noted this 1
morning is maintained. Some
purulent fluid around the base
of the right lung has been re-
moved by puncture this morn- '
ing, and further drainage will 1
be necessary.
