In its first year on an
organized basis on the
Elon College campus, in
tercollegiate debating has
won a solid spot among
student activities at Elon,
with Prof. Lloyd Young
serving as faculty super
visor for a group of en
thusiastic debaters.
The first tournament
of the year was at Appa
lachian State University
in early November, with
the Elon team account
ing for only one win a-
gainst eleven losses.De
baters taking part at that
time were Noel AlIen,Bill
Walker, Mark Jordan and
Hank Speer.
There was a much im
proved showing when the
Elon debaters entered the
second tournament of the
year at Florida State Uni-
v^ersity in Tallahassee,
Fla., on February 16th
and 17th, with Elon fin
ishing as the 10th school
in the novice division, a
group of schools with less
than two years of compe
The best team for Elon
was Noel Allen and Jane
Davis, the latter a fresh
man in her first colle
giate debate. This pair
had four wins and two
losses, and one of the
wins was against Appa
lachian State, a team
which lost only one de
cision in the tournament.
The other Elon team,
composed of freshmen
Mark Jordan and Dave
Evans, won two and lost
four debates, which re
gistered a tie with the
championship team from
Georgia State and lost
by a decision. Dave Ev
ans, member of this team,
led the Elon team in in
dividual points.
The Christian debaters
will enter another tour
nament at High Point this
weekend, with the four
individual team members
chosen from a group that
includes Noel Allen,Bill
Walker, Mark Jordan,
Dave Evans and Jane Da
vis, and Prof. Young
states that the Elon team
hopes to qualify in this
tournament for entry in
the national debate tour
nament, which will be held
in Louisville, Ky., on
April 4 through April 7th.
The subject for all in
tercollegiate debates this
year is on the nationwide
query, “Shall the federal
government guarantee a
minimum annual cash in
come to every citizen in
the United States?”
