Bees . .
Bees . . .
Doogue (Neg) made a justifiable attack on the "come closer, children and I'll tell you a story" type-of attitude of the affirmative. Then he discussed bees (but not birds).
Thomas (Aff), the first speaker from the floor, spoke well, but not as well as in the last debate. I got the impression that he was more at home in a political subject. He emphasised that the University best fulfilled its obligatior, to society, which supported it, by producing technicians. Whitta (Neg) disagreed. Technology had been carried too far (as in the H-bomb) and there was a need for men who were thinkers to control things.
