Instructing one of his
Intercollegiate debates -will occupy
attention at Augustana college dur
ing the coming year and both will
share in holding the center of the
etage. .Only two debates with other
colleges were held last year, but
Augustana was victorious in both In
stances and the great impetus given
to interest in debating by. the suc
cessful outcome of these encounters,
especially the defeat of its ancient ri
val, Bethany college, insures a con
tinued enthusiasm for this kind of
"Intercollegiate contests." '
A year ago the Augustana Debat
ing league was organized by the stu
dents of the three debating clubs and
all contests in the future will be held
under its auspices. To insure an
early start and sufficient preparation
for the coming year, a colnmittee
was elected before the close of last
term to correspond with neighboring
colleges In an effort to arrange In
advance a schedule for the season.
Last spring a debate was held with
Lombard college, and, though no
definite arrangements have been
made as yet, a return contest with
that institution will . undoubtedly be
held at Oalesburg. Negotiations have
also been carried on with Knox, Lake
Forest and Monmouth colleges and
a series of debates with ' these and
perhaps other schools will probably
fee arranged. v
Haa Election of Ofllrlera.
At a meeting yebterday afternoon
-fof the debating league steps were
taken to raise funds to put the league
on a firm financial basis and to aid
in covering the heavy expenses which
will be entailed by the debates.
Election of officers for the coming
year was also held with the follow
President Albert F. Schersten.
Vice president H. A. Johnson.
Recording secretary Irving Mun
son. Corresponding secretary Arnold
Treasurer A. Benjamin. Swan6on.
An executive committee, consist
ing of two members from each of the
three debating clubs was also elected.
As representatives from the Webster
club, B. A. Kallstrom and Arnold V.
Johnston were elected; from the
Gladstone club, C. E. Backman and
Bigfrld Blomgren and from the Bal
four club, Elmer Olson and H. W.
Linden. This committee will have
full charge of all debates and will
proceed Immediately to complete a
schedule as quickly as possible.

Twelfth Street in Nearly as Bad
Shape as Before It Was
NO REPAIRS ARE MADE
Enterprise of the Ladies Who Had
Work Done Wasted for Lack
of a Few Dollars.
But three years ago, through the en
terprise and generosity of a number
of Rock Island ladies. Twelfth street
from the city limits to Chippiannock
cemetery was macadamized. The work
was done under the direction of the
state highway commission and accord
ing to the principles of scientific road
making. The highway, Chen complet
ed, was expected to stand for years as
a sample of what could be done with
macadam as prepared in the state pen
itentiary and used under the rules laid
down by the state highway engineers.
For a year or more the road was
pretty nearly an ideal one, but there
was no provision made for sprinkling
It and no effort was made to even re
pair It. Being the best and shortest
route to the business part of the city,
it was used for practically all the
heavy hauling of produce and coal
coming Into Rock Island from the
south. The macadam was cut up Into
dust and speeding autos drew this dust
up and the wind carried !t away. Dirt
washed over the Intersections with
roads from the hill to the east and was
not removed. The result Is that now,
three years after the improvements
were made, the highway is in not
much better shape than it was before.
- Should Not Be Neglected.
This condition is inexcusable. A
small annual outlay should suffice to
keep the chuck holes filled and the
surface in good condition. It is only
a matter of doing the work when it
should be done. If South Rock Island
is not ab'e or sufficiently interested to
look after the matter, then other means
should be taken to keep the leading
road into Rock Island in good repair.
Further than that, the section of
Twelfth street south from the ceme
tery to Sears should be improved, for
it is always In worse condition than
any other piece of dirt road of similar
length that the farmers who come to
the city have to travel over.
