The subject discussed was, "Resolved, That the state should provide by gen eral taxation for a minimum term of six months in each school district." The local speakers defended the negative. The decision of the Judges, who were members or tne wnitman col lege faculty, seemed to meet with the approval of all who heard the foren sic contest, as it was generally con ceded that the local debaters had by far the better of the argument at all stages.
