Monroe Wins Again.
The Monroe High School debating i
team defeated the Macon team in
the debate held at Macon, Friday,
Feb. 28. Monroe was represented
by John L. Nolen, Harold M. Jayne,
and James G. Umstattd. This is
ono of the bust debating teams
Monroe has ever produced, as is
shown in that they defeated one of
the strongest High School teams in
tl ' State.
The Macon team was composed
of Miller, Sanderson, and Store,
three debaters of remarkable skill.
Both sides put up excellent
speeches and showed that they had
been well-trained by their coaches,
Supt. Seaton of Macon, and Supt.
Sipple of Monroe The judges, Supt.
Banks of Kirksville High School,
Supt. Jones of LaPlatte High School,
and Supt. Hurt of Clarence, render
a decision of 2 to 1 in favor of Mon
roe. The question was, "Resolved
that Capital Punishment should be
Abolished." Mr. W. L Scarborough
acted a3 chairman.
The debate was as follows: Mr.
Seaton, Coach of Macon team, gave
a short address of welcome in which
he introduced a prophecy that "M.
H. S." would win. Mr. Nolen, first
speaker of the evening, arose, gave
a brief outline of what the Affirma
tive was going to prove, then pro
ceeded to prove Imprisonment to be
a better Preventative of Crime,
which point he brought out very
Mr. Miller, lle first speaker on
the Negative, then - took the floor
and began "by naming the points
the Negative was going to prove.
The rest of his speech was centered
on proving Capital Punishment was
Immediately following him, Mr.
Jayne proved that Imprisonment
was to be preferred to Capital Pun
ishment. Mr. Jayne brought this
point out clear and strong and left
no room for further argument.
Next, Mr. Sanderson arose and
tried to prove that Capital Punish
ment was more beneficial to society.
Although Mr. Sanderson had an ex
ceedingly hard point to bring out,
he did well on it.
Following Mr. Sanderson wasMr.
Umstattd, third Affirmative. His
entire speech was taken up by'refut
ing arguments put forth by his op
ponent... Mr, Umstattd left no arg
uments untouched, handling them
all with comparative ease.
Mr. Stone, third Negative, next
tried to prove that CupitalJPutiish
nient more deterrent to Society.
Mr. Stone was a speaker of much
talent and made a very deep im
pres don on onr boys.
The Negative was allowed seve n
minutes for rebuttal, which was giv
en by Mr. Miller. He spent most of
his time trying to refute arguments
which Monroe had not mentio.ie.l,
never touching a single point brought
out by our boys.
The Affirmative was next allowed
seven minutes for rebuttal which
was rendered by Mr. James Um
stattd. He showed clearly that the
Negative had not proved a single
point of any significance, and
summed up the points proved by
The judges rendered thier decision
without hesitation, which showed
that there was no doubt in their
minds es to whom victory belonged
After a short but spicey talk by
Chairman Scarborough, the decision
was submitted to the audience and
was met with hearty approval.
