Three Year Contract
Two Out of Three Varsity
Contests of Season Won
That women’s forensic activities
on the Oregon campus for the year
1926-1927, have been unusually suc
cessful, is shown in a report pre
pared by Frances Cherry, women’s
debate manager, in which is given a
resume of the year’s work, and
which includes suggestions to be
considered in working out next
year’s forensic schedule.
One of the outstanding accom
plishments of the year is the estab
lishment of a three-year contract
providing for an annual triangular
debate, the universities of Idaho,
Washington and Oregon participat
The varsity women this year won
decisions in two out of the three
contests in which they took part.
The first inter-collegiate event was
a dual debate with the University
of Utah, held March 7. Cecil Mc
Kercher and Marion Leach, Oregon
co-eds, won an audience decision on
the subject, “Resolved, that social
sororities and fraternities should be
abolished from American college
Win One, Lose One
April 7, Margaret Elackaby and
Frances Cherry defeated the Uni
versity of Washington at Seattle on
the question, “Resolved, that there
should be established a department
of education with a secretary in
the President’s cabinet.” Pauline
Winchell and Irene Hartsell up
held the affirmative side of the
same question in a debate with the
University of Idaho, losing the de
cision by a two to one vote.
An unusually large number ,bf
women participated in the try-outs
held the first term. Of the twelve
upperclass women who entered the
preliminary contest eight were
chosen to work on the squad and
six represented Oregojn in inter
Of the twelve freshman women
who tried out, six were chosen to
work on the squad, and four took
part in forensic contests.
The freshman debates were non
decision. Sylvia Seymour and El
eanor Poorman debated Pacific Uni
versity April 14 on the question,
“Resolved, that women’s place is
in the home.”
Margaret Edmundson and Flor
ence McNerney debated Linfield
College April 20, on the question,
“Resolved, that democracy has been
extended too far in the TJ. S.”
According to the report, next
year’s debate schedule will very
likely include a return debate with
the University of Utah. An Ore
gon negative team will go to Mos
cow, Idaho, to debate the Univer
sity of Idaho, and the affirmative
team will meet the University of
Washington, at Eugene.
A manager for freshman women’s
debates will probably be appointed.

The ponies didn’t appear, and
the beauties lacked the sparkle to
take their places. The setting and
the songs were excellent, though.
The first scene of the second act
showed the Mardi Gras, with a
crowd of revelers in the background.
Ernest McKinney gave a forceful
characterization of a highly ine
briated young man. A little more
action in the background might have
helped the idea of making merry,
but Cavita Campbell’s pantomime
work and the pouies’ dancing left
little room for improvement.
Russian Dancers Appear
The second scene of the second
act was the highlight of the entire
production, in the writer’s opinion,
although the action of the plot ad
vanced but little. A breath-taking
series of specialties kept the stage
in a kaleodoscopic whirl. An ec
centric dance was unique and skill
ful. A Russian chorus was joyous,
and a Russian specialty was fine.
An exhibition of the tango was
careful and beautiful. An acrobatic
act, wherein the ponies entered the
stage by a chute, was good, and a
prima donna sang sweetly and well.
“Ballroom Steppings;” the contri
bution of Swede, Jerry, and Okev;
a song by a trio of harmonizers;
and a double tango attraction round
ed out the scene, and left the audi
ence agog with anticipation.
The third act found Ed Cheney
and Madge Normile doing the heavy
work. We’ve seen Cheney dance bet
ter. A pickaninny song, blue sing
ing, a dash of dialogue, and two
pony chorus numbers added gusto.
The fourth act found everything
coming out happily. It was short j

the opportunity to secure enough
extra subscriptions to place him
first in the lists.
The charge was verified by an in
