Prof. Gail E. Densmore, of the
speech department, manager of the
Michigan High School debating
league, has announced the ques-
tion for debate for the 1929-1930
season. It is Resolved: That a
Judge or a Board of Judges be sub-
stituted for the Jury in all State
and Municipal Trials in' Michigan.
According to Professor Densmore,
the league has a record breaking
membership of two hundred and
sixty schools for this school. year.
These schools are in all parts of
the state from Calumet near Kee-
wanaw Point, the most northern
part of Michigan, to Morensi on
the Ohio-Michigan border.
The debating league was organiz-
ed and placed under the control of
the University Extension Service in
1917. Since then there has been
a state championship debate in
Ann Arbor each year. Five talks
will be given over station WJR, De-
troit, to create public interest in
the debates. The League has also
sent out newspaper articles to the
newspaper of each team' ,shome

formation about the league or the
progress of their school debating

as a follow-up to his Thursday dis-1
cussion of pagan and mystic re-1
ligions. Pointing to the fact that1
Christianity began as a modified
mystery religion, Mr. Nock showed
how the Augustan age changed
Christianity from a mystic religion
to the embryo of its modern status.
The Cambridge speaker left
immediately after his lectures here,
going to Harvard University, where
he will temporarily fill the vacancy
caused by the retirement of George
Foote Moore. Mr. Nock will, how-
ever, be called away in January
to continue work with the' Cam-
bridge faculty.
