SENIOR SOCIETY VICTORY Negative Best in Georgetown Law School Contest. FINAL DISCUSSION OF YEAR Award to Be Made at Commencement Exercises?Members of the Reception. Committee. T"ni versity, in College, last affirmed That James Spiller, Xecrativp. (Paine Photo.) The Senior Soelety won the debate and James Spiller of the third year Has? car ried off first, honors by the decision of the judges at the third and final prize do hate of the year between the Senior and Junior dp>bating societies of tliP law school of the Georgetown Gaston Hall, Georgetown evpn ing. The question discussed T'nited States senators should he elected by the direct vote of the people. The Junior Society had the affirmative, and the Senior Society the negative. The judges were unanimous in eiving the deci sion to the negative op the merits of the dehate, hut were not of one mind as to which of the four d -haters was entitled to first honors and', incidentally, the faculty priz? of $!<??. In this respect the debate was so eiose that the decision of the judges, as finally announced, stood two to one. I^eo A. Rover and Thomas F. O'Mara. both of the second year class, supported the affirmative, for the Junior Society. James Spiller and Charles A. J?ethprt. both of the third year class represented the Senior Society Jn the negative. Gaston Hall Crowded. Gaston "Hall was crowded with the members and friends of each of the rival societies and with the relatives, class mates and friends of the debaters. Seated Charles A. Lethert, Negative. (I'alne Photo.) among- the audience in different parts of the hall, carefully noting the different points brought out as the argument pro ceeded, were the three judges, Lawrence O. Murray controller of the currency; J. liold.sworth Gordon, and Morgan H. Beach, former United States attorney for the District. The dehate ww spirited, and every ar gument for or against the proposed con stitutional amendment was brought up by one side or the other. Royal T. McKeirna, representing the post-graduate class on the committee on law school public debates, acted as chair man and introduced the speakers and Jiulces. I.eo A. Rover opened the debate as first speaker for the affirmative. He out lined the course of argument that was to be followed hy his side, and pointed out that the change in the method' of electing I'nited States senators would not in the least alter the peculiar charac ter pf the body, due to the constitutional age qualifications, length of term, the smallness of their numbers and the fact that the terms of only one-third of the members expire at a time. Argument by the Winner. James Spiiler was" introdu ed as the first speaker for the negative. He ar gued that even if there was a popular clamor for the proposed change in the Constitution, its enactment would eventu ally lead to the destruction of state sov ereignty. and would abolish tlie system of checks and balances peculiar to the Amer ican form of government. He recalled the history of the previous amendments to tlie Constitution, and argued that the conditions which obtained when they" were enacted were not present today to call for any alteration in the organic law of the land. He reasoned that if this change were brought about it would gradually tear down the Constitution bit by bit and would in this manner endan ger the liberties of the people. "Like legislature like people," he said in ar guing that the character of senators elect ed would not be altered by being chosen direct.y by the peopie instead of indi rectly through the people's agents. The sc.ond speaker for th? arii mmive was Thomas F. O'Mara. He outlined tiie fundamental t}iffe~enc=s between the two houses of Congress, and declared that the four main distinctions of tlie Senate greater age of its members, longer serv ice, a larger constituency ana a smaller .

Jfe declared that the govern ment was like a "plaint. Tt was helped by Thomas F. O'Mara, Affirmative. (Paine Photo.) a little water and sometimes It was nec essary to prune It, but th*? 'ess the roots were tampered with the better. He said that the present character of the Senate, due largely to tho method of selecting its members, gave assurance that the sober second thought and not the mere passing whim of the people would prevail in its national legis!-ation Each speaker was given several min utes-in rebuttal and it was here that the liveliest part of the debate took place Time and again the members of the different societies and the particular friends of tiic speakers applauded as a good attack was made on the argument of an opponpnt. In a few brief sentences the entire dehate was gone over again, extracts from the proceedings of the constitutional convention were read, and everything possible done to impress the judges, who were about to retire to com pare notes. At the olose of the debate Mr. McKenna introduced the judges and announced that they were to decide which side won the debate and also who was the best de bater. While the judges were conferring, music was furnished by the college orchestra. Several selcrt ions were given b?foj-p the judges appeared aftpr having deliberated for nearly half an hour. Applause Greets Judges. Tremendous applause greeted them as they entered the hall, and then everything became still as the expectant audience waited for the final words of Mr. Murray, who announced the decision. "It is too h;id." he said. ' that in such a splendid debate bo:!. . ' cannot win. Leo A. Rover, Affirmative. This fact makes It a displeasure as well as a pleasure to be forced to decide be tween them. I have a degree from Georgetown, and was never so proud of it as I am tonight. I mean every word of it when I say that this was the best debate I have ever heard in a university. Before retiring we decided to judge this debate according to the topics; matter, arrang^mpnt diction.? voice and readiness in rebuttal. The opinion ot the judges was unanimous in giving the decision on | the merits of tlie debate to the negative. NEW YORK. WASHINGTON. PARIS. Julius Garfitikle^Go.
