SEASON The debating season, this year, will open with a triangle debate between U. S. C., Occidental and Pomona, on Thursday, March 4. U. S. C., affirmative, will meet Pomona, negative, here, in the auditorium, at eight o’clock. U. S. C., nega tive, will meet Occidental at the same time. The subject chosen for debate is a new phase of an old question, and is of interest, especially at this time: “Resolved, that the coal mines of the United States should be nationalized.” Members of the affirmative team are Merle McGinnis, Robert Carlquist and Louis De Lea. The negative team is composed of Richard Bird, Le Roy Reames and Charles Paddock. According to Professor Blanks the squad has some very promising material, some of the men having distinguished themselves in debates in previous years. The teams were selected from the varsity debating squad. Aside from the debate, Thursday night, other forms of entertainment are being planned. College songs and yells will be a feature of the evening. The junior play try-outs were not completed until late last evening; accordingly a full list of the cast will not be printed until tomorrow. Mr. St. John, who has conducted the try-outs, has chosen very carefully from the number of candidates for parts and has finally decided on Helen Northmore and Robert Rager for the two leads. Much promising material has presented itself and it has been difficult to determine the parts. After tomorrow the cast will begin work on the play and “Green Stockings” will be the big thing on the junior program until its presentation. John Markey, manager of the play, is confident that Mr. St. John will pick and direct a cast that will well represent the class. The two leads, Miss Northmore and Mr. Rager, have both had experience in the dramatic line and are capable of giving finished characterizations of their parts. Mr. Markey is confident that with such leads the play will be very successful. A.W.S.
