the high school auditorium at chapel
period. The first speaker of the affirma
tive side was Guy Hope, who stated
that capital punishment should be
abolished, for murder is always mur
der, whether by a state or by an indi
vidual. The first speaker on the nega
tive side was Clary Holt. He stated
that capital punishmnet should not be
abolished, for it is necessary for the
protection of society. The second
speaker on the afiirmative was Rigdon

punishment should give way to a more
just and human mode of punishment,
such as life imprisonment. The second
speaker on the negative was Douglas
Cartland. “Capital punishment should
not be abolished,” he stated, “because

Question: Why can we often see the
whole circle of the moon when it is
Answer : The reason is that the earth
shines brightly by the sun’s light, just
as the moon does; and the earths light
is enough to light up the moon, so that
we can sometimes see even the part of
its face that is not lit by the sun.
Question: Shall we ever be able to
get to any other planet?
Answer: Probably not. The moon is
only 240,000 miles away, but nothing
could fire a hollow ball fast enough to
go so far, even if the direction could
be controlled, and even if people inside
it could survive the shock of being
Question: lYhy does a bee die when
its sting comes out?
Answer: IVhat we call the sting of
a bee is not really meant to be used
as a sting. It really exists to help the
bee lay its eggs, and when the bee uses
the sting, it is generally roughly torn
away from the bee’s body, causing
damage which is usually fatal.
Question : Is it true that there is the
sign of a lost eye on our brain?
Answer: It is quite true that there
is a part of the brain which is supposed
by very learned men, who have studied
the brains of all kinds of animals, to
represent an eye which occupied the
position of the middle line of the head
right in the centre. There is still
existing in the far-off country of New
Zealand a lizard whose proper name
is sphenodon, in which this central eye
is so near the surface that it can still
be affected by the rays of light.
