World's Problems Tackled
By Varsity Debate Squad

If you like to expound on cur-
rent issues, there's a place for you
After renewing Big Nine inter-
collegiate competition last fall for
the first time since the war, the
Michigan Varsity Debate squad,
with a host of challenging topics
to keep them hopping, are oper-
,ting on a full-scale basis again
this semester. Students from var-
ious schools within the Univer-
sity are out for this extra-curricu-
lar activity, which is calling for
new recruits to join the ranks.
No previous debate experience is
Before Audience
One of the main purposes of the
activity is debate before actual
audiences. To this end, an at-
tempt is made to put debaters be-
fore audiences at the very start,
and to have as many students as
possible participate in actual per-
To stimulate audience interest
in topics, various kinds of debates
are being tried, although the
cross-examrination type is stress-
ed. One of the more effective
forms" involves the shift of opin-
ion ballot in which the value of
the debate in influencing the
opinions of the audience is test-
Largest Group
This year's group actively par-
ticipating in debate is one of the
largest since debating was start-
ed at Michigan by Prof. True-
blood. The Michigan Varsity
squad was one of the first in the
country when it was launched in
1893 in a debate .with the Univer-
sity of Wisconsin. Last year,
members traveled 2,500 miles,
participated in 50 debates, and
spoke before 15,000 people. By
Dental School Officers
The freshman class of the Den-
tal School has elected new officers
for the coming semester.
Those elected to the positions
are: Julius Franks, president;
Richard Haggerman, vice - presi-
dent; Jack Smith, Secretary; Mike
Glover, treasurer; and Robert
Love, student council representa-

the end of this year, according to
D. C. Kleckner, coach of debate,
the varsity debaters will have giv-
en 60 public performances before
audiences ranging "from labor
groups to high school assemblies."
Besides discussing such issues
as compulsory arbitration of labor
disputes and world federal gov-
ernment, the squad takes up as
many campus topics as possible.
In the near future, teaching meth-
ods in the colleges and universi-
ties will receive the squad's at-
tention In one of the debates.
Anyone who is interested in the
opportunities afforded by actual
participation in varsity debate
may contact Mr. Kleckner in Rm.
4202 Angell Hall. So if you like
to argue, why not look into it?

Accidents Fall
Ann Arbor's traffic accident
rate decreased 15 per cent during
1947, according to an accident
summary prepared under Roland
Gainsley, captain of the city po-
lice traffic division.
The drop from 1,024 mishaps in
1946 to 875 in 1947 was attributed
to Ann Arbor's intensive traffic
congestion relief program under-
taken during the summer.
