The Coach's idea in having the "first

Ags. and Home Ecs. Hear Professors'
A spirited debate on the League of
Nations, with Professor Farquhar favoring the League, and Dr. Tuthill opposing it, was the feature of the program given at the meeting of the Agricultural Society Monday night.
This was ono of a series of programs given during the last week by
various organizations, on the League,
with a purpose of educating the student body on the subject which was
voted on Tuesday morning by students and faculty members.
Professor Farquhar's talk was a
brilliant presentation of his reasons
for favoring a treaty and a league.
The chief objections, and the reservations suggested were also discussed
by the affirmative speaker. Doctor
Tuthill responded with a spirited answer to the first speech.

Warren was brought up on two
charges of burglary. On the night of
