Above Rights in Democracy

By LILIAS WAGNER
To preserve the democracy
which we now have, we must nev-
er take it for granted and must
look for the good in it, Provost
James Adams said at the speech
Provost Adams, whose present
position involves administration
of the educational functions of
the University, pointed out the
The University's busy varsity
debate team will take on the Uni-
versity of Iowa squad at 4 p.m.}
today in Kellogg Auditorium for
the fourth intercollegiate debate
'of the season.
Taking the negative side of the
question, "Resolved: that a feder-
al world government should be
established" will be Ben Vanden-
Belt, '48, and Frank Nelson, '48
for Michigan. Change-in-opinion
ballots will' be used in determin-
ing the audience reaction to the
fact that this country suffered
none of the ravages of wair, but

Rights and Privileges
"We put our rights and privi-'
leges before our responsibility," he
observed. "We seem to have tle

dreams exceed, our accomplish-
"The quality of democracy de-
pends on the moral fibre of the
people and their devotion to free-
dom, justice, and truth," Provost
Adams concluded. '

From beginning to end, Com-
