Contest Scheduled for April 25—
Capital Punishment is Question
Final arrangements for the Sopho
more-Freshman debate were made
Wednesday afternoon, when the rep
resentatives of the two classes met
with Assistant Professor Robert Pres
cott in Villard Hall. The question of
capital punishment was chosen, word
ed as follows: “Resolved, That life
imprisonment with restricted power
of pardon is a desirable substitute for
capital punishment in Oregon.”
The contest is scheduled for Friday
evening, April 25, and will be held in
Villard Hall. The toss of a coin gave
the Sophomores the negative of the
question. Each debater will be given
twelve minutes for constructive argu
ment and five minutes for rebuttal.
Following a series of elimination
try-outs, each class will choose its
representatives independent of the
other, three men from each class com
pose the final teams. Each class will
announce the dates for the try-outs in
the near future.
Professor Prescott says, that it is
probably too late for any prize from
the State Bar Association this year,
but the members of the winning team
will have their names and class num
erals engraved on a silver cup pre
sented by the class of 1910. This cup
is to remain a permanent trophy. The
object of these debates is to revive
interest in debating in the University
and to train future University spout
ers. The plan is similar to one in
vogue at the Universities of Michigan
ami Wisconsin colleges, which win

The Freshman representatives were
Leslie Tooze, Fred Dunbar, and

MRS. PARSONS WILL
ADDRESS AGORA CLUB
Speaker Has Wide Experience in
Reform and Civil Improvement
On Friday the Agora Club will be
addressed by Mrs. Mable H. Parsons,
of the English department. In the
treatment of her subject, “Women in
Civic Work,” Mrs. Parsons will em
phasize the following requirements
for work along this line: First, the
neccessity of a disinterestedness of
purpose; secondly, a strict imperson
ality of attitude and method; thirdly,
the spirit of co-operation rather than
of criticism; fourth, a willingness to
make use of the machinery of the city
government actually at hand, such as
charters, ordinances, etc,; and lastly,
a willingness to make use of the
small opportunities .for improvements
lying immediately before the worker’s
feet.” To summarize, it “is a willing
ness on all occasions to be practical
rather than superior.”
In the past, Mrs. Parsons has done
much work .as a civic reformer and
prominent club woman. Mrs. Par
sons had the splendid opportunity of
studying and investigating the condi
tions in the Chicago stock-yard settle
ments and the Chicago commons
while a guest at the famous Hull
House. In Michigan, Mrs. Parsons
was interested in the civic interests
in the city of Detroit, and was presi
dent, of the University Consumer’s
League at Ann Arbor. Before com
ing to Oregon, Mrs. Parsons was
president of the Greater Medford
Club, a civic improvement club of
about 200 women.

From the financial point of view
the trip was highly satisfactory. The
box office receipts amounted to $310,
and as, through the hospitality of O.
A. C.’s students no hotel expenses
were necessary. Manager Geary ex

sum sufficient to practically wipe out
