CLUB HEARS DEBATE
ON FRENCH SYSTEM
FOR ARMY TRAINING
Affirmative Urges That United
States Adopt French Plan of
Compulsory Military Service
NEGATIVE WINS CONTEST
Affirmative Debaters Were Harold Cone
and Carlton Wilder; Negative An
nette DonaVant and Louis Brooks
A debate ou the query, “Resolved:
That the United States should adopt
the French system of compulsory mili
tary service,’’ constituted the program
for the meeting of the Greensboro
High School Hehating Club, October 7.
The Frenc-h system provides that all
able bodied men shall, from the age
of twenty to forty-five, actually or po
tentially be a part of the army, first as
an active soldier, then as a member of
the reserve, and lastly, of the terri
torial reserve. By this system a vast
number of Frenchmen receive military
training. The upholders of the affirm
ative side of the query maintained,
first, that present conditions war
ranted extensive military preparation,
and second, that the French system
was the most adequate to meet the
needs of the United States.
Those contending for the negative
argued that the adoption of the French
system would tend to militarize the
United States, that compulsory service
was undemocratic, and that the sys
tem was impractical for this country.
Those debating were Harold Cone, and
Carlton Wilder, for the affirmative;
Annette Uonavant and Louis Broows.
for the negative. An alumni picnic
was suggested, and discussed.
