Co-«d Debaters Oppose Oregon State Representatives in Debate. "Resolved, That tbe Russian system would be applicable to western civilization” was the subject for argument when Betty Henninger and Evelyn Caldwell, 8. C. debaters met Oregon State representatives Friday afternoon in Porter hall for the flrst extemporaneous, non-decl-sional debate ot the season. Since the question was first an nounced al noon Friday, the four contestants had less than tour hours to prepare for the debate. In upholding the affirmative side of tbe question Alice Ingall*, Oregon State speaker, made the striking statement, "Capitalism will fail; socialism will take Its place, and sovietism must bridge the gup between the two systems.” Her colleague, Dorothy Dtuschell, emphasized the "growing importance of socialism " In both constructive speeches and in their refutation the S. C. women presented a com lush e group of fa ts In defense of the negative. Miss Caldwell, first negative speaker, built her constructive argu ment around the fact that sovietism in inherently unsound, and Miss Henninger'* plan wag to point out that sovietism would not be applicable to western civilization. She also called attention to defects in the argument* presented by tbe visiting debaters. Marc N. Goodnow of the journalism department, and field repre sentative for a recent merchandising survey of the state, bas written a report of the findings, which indicates that retail trade conditions in California are reported to be improving. "Cilru* districts of California are showing better volumes than others,” states the report. “In some communities, failures have reduced competition and increased volume* for those remaining. Inventories in many instances are too low, resulting in expensive form* of small quantity buying, or in actual loss of patronage.” The merchant who sits idly by, awaiting the return of good business, however, I* deluding him-•elf," continues Mr. Goodnow. Now more than ever, there i* a need for clear thinking and planning and for use of *ound business promotion principles, including budgets, control and advertising." j “Indications which point io bet-| ter conditions in trade *lso point to greater competition fiom chains, not only because of chain-store expansion but because of chain-stock expansion. There is every evidence that these developments will be heaviest in the midwest and Pacific areas, and along with th^rn will no doubt come a rise in price lines up to $10 for many of tbi>se multiple organization* that heretofore hav* *old merchandise under one dollar.” Mr. Goodnow believes that vast new fields of merchandise as yet untouched by the chains will surely be entered, *nd it may be expected that research and experiment will lead these *ame organizations inlo improvement of *er-vice merchandise, and customer relations.
