On Tuesday of this week occurred
a double debate between the High
schools of Madras and Maupin, on
the question of government relief
for agriculture. Both debates were
won by the home teams.
Fred Srearer and Helen Webofg,
our affirmative team, journeyed to
Madras and debated wth two Madras
boys James Brown and Frederick
Martin. The Madras postmaster and
one of that town's attorneys, with
F. D. Stuurt of Maupin, acted as
judges. II. G. Kecney, principal cf
the Mudrns High school, acted as
chairman, while one of the teachers
of that school kept time.
The debatn was held in one of the
classrooms of the commodious Mad
ras building. Fred Shearer, some
what conscious of the sea of faces
before him, opened the debate. . He
explaned the Haugen- McNary
Farm Relief bill and gave his hear
ers an idea of the principles involved,
in the measure. A picture of j the
farmer's condition for the past sven
years was then presented by our Vig
orous senior and the issues of 'he
debate clearly stated. Fred enM
his argument by naming a formid
able list of bu purlers of the Haugen
McNary bill. j
The first negative speaker then
opened, the argument for Muras
and ho was followed by He), i and
the second 'negative speaker. i
In the rebuttal work the negative
had the floor first. The defens he
put up was quickly demolished! by
Fred's master logic and analogies.

refute and Helen's straight forward
presentation of our arguments, on
