Pierians woa-ebate Wednesday Night
( Aaothef; Ket MpndaJ Eyeniajji
The second in a series of "debales
for the Gatch cup took place in Col
lege chapel .Wednesday- evening.
Interest inthe debates is warming
up, and a large audience was pres
ent. '. The struggle . was ,, between
the Utopian and Pierian societies,
the latter being the winner of the
prize in last year's- debates. The
decision was won by the Pierians.
The question was -'Resolved that
the pulpit offers a wider field for
eloquence than does the bar." The
Utopians had the affirmative, and
their speakers were, Etta Fuller,
leader, Laura Hill and Maud Cock
ran. The team of the Pierians was
Minnie Phillips, leader, Maud Rob
erts and Alice Edwards. The lea
der of the Utopians is a daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Fuller of this
city. Miss Phillips, leader of the
Pierians is a daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. J. T. Phillips oof Corvallis and
Miss Edwards, the daughter of I,.
N.-Edwards, of Bellfountain.
The debate like others' of the se
ries was a good one, a -marked im
provement being noticeable as a re
sult of the competition that has been
on for the prize during the past two
years. The Utopians argued that
the pulpit offered the wider field by
reason of the fact that the clergy
are at work in every land, civilized
and uncivilized, while the field of
the bar is restricted to the court
room and civilization. The .; Pieri
ans rejoined that wherever there are
people there are laws, and that
wherever there are laws there are
lawyers, and held out the argument
that in the defense in criminal cases
the opportunity for oratory is unri
. A highly interesting debate, as
well as an instructive one, will be
the discussion of the pending : Pri
mary election, law, to be debated
the chapel next Monday evening by
the Amicitians and Philadelphians. 1
All citizens will have to vote on the
question .next June and in the com

The moving pictures were

the former occasions, "The Tiiptothe
