The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, June 1910

New Speakers' Debates

New Speakers' Debates.

"You'd scarce expect one of my age,
To speak in public on the stage."

The Committee, owing to the large number of more or less experienced speakers taking part in Saturday night debates, decided to start a series of debates for new speakers, to be held at intervals on Thursday nights. These debates have proved successful, and any inexperienced speaker who suffers from "nerves" finds there a sympathetic audience that listens to his remarks without interjection. The institution of these debates was purely an experiment, but the support given to them warrants their continuance.
