Geneva College Debating Team

Beaver Falls Evening News Tribune February 14th 1920, Page 3 

Debating Teams Are Picked at Geneva College

    With a long schedule of debates practically arranged for this spring, the Geneva college debaters are getting down to the grind in real earnest in order to uphold the splendid reputation that Geneva has had in the last few years in that line of intercollegiate activities.  

Recently a tryout for the affirmative and  negative teams was held with the faculty acting as judges.  Two teams were selected, each consisting of three men and an alternate.  The following men were chosen:  Lawrence Gilmore, Donald Martin, Leonard Duncan, Clifford Matthews, Lawrence Patterson, Eugene Curry with Clyde McCarroll and Geo. Robb as alternatives.  

The question which is to be most generally debated this spring is “Resolved that Federal Legislation Be Enacted for the Permanent Control of Food Prices.”

  Geneva has some excellent material for the teams and with a little hard work, two crackerjack teams can be put into the field.  It is usually arranged that each team debate the same night, that is when is debating at home the other will be debating away
