(From Saturday's Dally)
Last night IJcnd high school lost its
chance to participate In further con
tests of tho Oregon Stato Dabate
League, by securing only thrco votes
In tlm triangular debate held with
Culver and I'rlnevlllo. Tho latter
school will rends its team to debate
with tho winner In Tho Dalles tri
angle. Tho results of the threo contests
are as folb.ws:
At Hend Hend 1, Culver 2.
At I'rlnevlllo Hend ?, Prine
At Culver I'rlncvlllc 3. Culver 0.
This gives tho Crook County High
School tho hlgrniU percentage, In
spite or tho fact that tho visiting 1
team In each town carried off thei
honors. Hend and Culver cannot par- (
tlclpato In future arguments for tho
stato championship, because tnc rules
call for an elimination scries.
JutlgfM All Visitors.
Judges at the Hend debate last
nlsht were C. W. Parker, principal of
tlm Metollus school, Mrs. Gertrude
Whlttus, or the Terrebonne school,
and O. L. Dobson, or Dcs Moines,
Iowa, who Is visiting In Iledmond.
J. Alton Thompson presided at the
gathering. Kach Judge votes Indi

Hend was represented in tho high
school auditorium last night by Iiert
Tardlo and Itobcrt Hillycr, and Cul
ver by Piatt Hopkins and Idalla King.
Miss Frances Glttons, their coach,
accompanied tho latter team to Ileml.
At I'rlnevlllo, Hllah Drlck and Ar
thur Norcott composed Bend's team.
Tho Hend students who debated
Culver, upheld the affirmative, and
in I'rlnevlllo. tho negative. The ques
tion was, "Resolved. That the Single
Tax as Advocated by Henry George,
is Desirable tor Oregon."
Tux Cnllcil Unjust.
Tho winners based their arguments
on tho statement that land Is right
ful property and single tax means the
confiscation of this, therefore tho tax
would be unjust and would discrim
inate against a certain class or citi
zens. Miss King said It would 1m
podo tho economic development of
Oregon by driving Investors from tho
state, removing tho many Incentives
which now Induce men to become ter
mors and bring about an unequal dis
tribution of wealth. "We are all
Oregonlans," she concluded, "and it
Is our purpose to mako and not to
break our state."
Doth Tardlc and Hillycr claimed
that If a men were putting his proper
ty to tho best use ho would have no
need to fear tho slnglo tax. They
claimed that tho present system is
unjust. In that It takes taxes from
tho result of man's labor rather than
from tho unearned Increment on his
