Defeats Jamesville and

One of the interesting hai>oemn*>
among the state high >rhool> durinv..
last month was the triangular debates
held in most of the state high schools.
in our county James-rule. Farm Life
and Oak City high schools contested. I

ter Allied Debts should be Cancelled" I
was a rather hard problem and or?
that required roach research and steuy'
At Jamesville. their home tean- de
fended the affirmative. Misses Ruth
Modlin and Opal Brovtn mere the
speakers, they were nset by the Oak
City negative* Misses Hazel Pilars
ami Sarah Long Johnson were the
speakers.
The debater* did hoaor not only te
themselves At to their trainers, both
teams being pretty evenly matched
and rridnemg a knowleu, e
of the subject. The Oak City debater
won by only a few points Oak Citv
also won over Farm Life at (kk
City which was also hotly contested
by the Farm Life boys, who had en
tered the contest only a week before
the debate, not giving them sufficient
time to get as much data as was
necessary. ,
In this contest the final outcome
was Jamesville 104 one won one.
Farm Life lost.
Oak City teams won which entitles th
to enter the final contest at Chapel
Hill. Two thirds of all the teams of
the state lost and one-third of them
go in the final contest-

and Spring Hope wining: over Sj-rir..-
