The popularity of the Debating Society has continued this year. Audiences are large and the number of speakers has shown a marked increase. Three debates were held during the first term, the subjects being the Czechoslovakian situation, Marshall Aid to Europe, and Private Schools. Debates are held fortnightly during the first and second terms. The Plunket Medal Oratory Contest is to take place in July. The Bledisloe Medal Oratory Contest, which was won last year by Victoria College, and the Joynt Scroll Debating Contest will be held at C.U.C. at the same time as Winter Tournament.
