Last night, when the University de
baters were striving for places on
the intercollegiate teams, and for the
Alumni medal awarded annually to
the best individual debater, they ad
dressed an audience of six judges, one
housemother, and from one to eight
Nor did any one seem surprised or
particularly giieved at the showing.
“1 had rather do most anything than
listen to a debate, it’s an awful
bore,” replied in substance numerous
students when asked if they were go
ing, or had gone. Students no longer
take an active interest in debate.
This is true all over the country.
The reason is not hard to find.
People read nowadays. Public speak
ing is rapidly passing out of exist
ence. Audiences do not gather to hang
on the words of orators as they did a
few decades ago, in the days of Lin
coin and Dougins for instance. A few
men, like Roosevelt and Bryan, draw
great crowds. But these come to see
rather than to hear. The newspaper
has supplanted the public speaker.
The Student Body goes behind
financially on debate every year. It
is no longer of interest to University
students, as the lack of competition
for places on the teams, (lie dying
condition of the Laurean Society, and
the almost total lack of attendance
at the debate last night showed defin
Is there no way to popularize de

to University people? \nd if there
is not. why support a student activity

The regular meeting of the Execu
tive Council was called to order by
President Spencer. Flora Dunham,
editor of the Monthly, gave a brief
report of the work of the Monthly
and of the possibility of its carrying
its own weight for the rest of the
year. Ralpl Cake, as manager, gave
a report of the expenditures of the
Monthly, and of its assets and lia
bilities, showing that up to date its
liabilities exceeded its assets. He ex
plained how its assets might be in
creased. Andrew Collier, manager of
the Emerald, reported that the Em
erald was making money each issue,
and showed what prospects it had of
continuing to do so. Karl Onthank,
editor of the Emerald, stated what
he considered would he the ultimate
result of uniting the Oregon Monthly
with the Emerald as a supplement.
A motion was made and carried
that the Oregon Monthly be continued
under the same editor and staff as at
present, but under the manager of

The social calendar for this week
end is crowded to the limit. However,
this is not a forerunner of a strenu
ous winter social season, but merely
a finale before the pre-examination
lull which is in accordance with the
Faculty ruling, which prohibits any
festivities for a month previous to
the examinations. The Phi Delta
Theta Glee Club dance, the Avava
