a University of Florida, Gainesville, Wednesday, April 17. 1VM8 No. 25 0,DEBATING TEAMS LEAVE FRIDAY FOR ENEMY'S TERRITORY Benz, Carter, Stein and Mudge Will Depart for Knoxville and Columbia to Take U'p Arms for U. F. TENN. AND S. C. COME HERE Gainesville and University Will' Play Host to Visiting Men Who Ar Scheduled to Debate Here. After a month of preparation, J. S. Benz, Dickson Carter, Sam Stein and, V. D. Mudge, the debators who are to represent the University in the 1918 triangular debate with the Universities of Tennessee and South Carolina, will leave Friday for their destinations; Benz and Carter to go to Knox-| ville, and Stein and Mudge to Columi bia. At Knoxnille, Benz and Carter, the latter taking the place of Marcus Brown because of illness, will uphold the affirmative of the question, "Resolved: That wage boards should be established in the various states with, power to establish minimum wvage scales for workers in department stores and factories (constitutionality conceded)," against the South Carolia ebtos.At Columbia Stein aln dgbaowill take the negative o the proposition against Tennessee. Tennessee and Carolina will debate here on the same day (Saturday, April 20), so that each debate will be held on neutral territory. The Tennessee and Carolina debators are expected to arrive in Gainesville Friday. They will be the guests of the University while here. The debate will be held probably in the high school auditorium, as it was Inst year, although the location has not yet been definitely decided upon. The two Florida teams held a trial debate Monday night in the law college, for the purpose of breaking the ice and rounding off the rough edges. Their arguments and their exposition of them were excellent and they are expected to win both their debates and maintain the good record of last year's teams. EDWIN E. SPARKS ARRIVES AT HOME The following is an extract from a letter which Dr. Murphree received trom, Edwin E. Sparks, president of the Pennsylvania State College some time ago. It will be remembered by most that Dr. Sparks was a visitor on the campus sonic time ago, and delscred several interesting addresses LAWYERS MAKE TRIP. o 'thesnthe Uivrt ntere st e"d: i the study of law and the workings of our legal machinery were taken Friday, April 5, through the federal land office in the post office building by Registrar Robert W.

The two gentlemen explained everything in connection with public lands in Flo state rida, from the to the present beginnings of the day, including a full explanation of the survey systemni Interesting to the inspecting group, were several hundred parchments, I yellowed with age, dating Ironm their time of John Quincy Adams' administration and hearing the signatures of Presidents of the United States' ever since hs {lay. They were un'claimed land patents, granted direct frojm the government to the settlers sonme of then, granted for military service in the wvar of 1812' An employee of the office told they visitors that just a short time ago' he had written to Washington con-I 'cerning certain papers which had been sent there for correction in 1825.Many other interesting things were brought to the attention of the coming' barristers, and when they left they were presented with pamphlets contaming an inventory of all public lands in the country, letters of instructions to prospective homesteaders, and copies of the federal homesteading laws. THREE YEARS TO A DECREE According to late reports, the death knell ha. been sounded to those col_loge youths who devote a large part of their time to the other than study' side of college life. At a meeting recently held at the Association of American Colleges a three-year course was advocated instead of the present. fou'-year one. The president of Clark College is a strong supporter of the proposed concentration of the college work. He said: *After the war education will become intensified, partially due to the inauguration of universa1 military training which will take up one year of college life. Seniors at the University of Illinois are now drawing up a petition to the effect that all seniors who have made a "B" or higher in a course should not have to take an exam. Their hesitation was removed by the news that the Unm'ersity of Kansas had recently granted that privileze--Ex Princeton,-lt has been decided to make Princeton the training center of the first contingent of five hundred Y. M. C. A. workers who are soon to be sent to France to serve with the French army in response to a request from Premier Cenmenceau -x UNIVERSITY OF FL.ORIDA BATTALION INPCTO Monday Lieutenant S. Army, evening. Inspecting Officer Colonel Chas H. Boyce, U. from Chickarnauga Park, Tenn., am' sed in Gainesville and, Tuesday evening, proceeded to his I work of conducting the yearly government inspection of the University battalion Promptly at eight-thirty, he arrived at the parade grounds and, finding the battalion drawn up in formation and awaiting him, he proceeded to put the three companies com-. posing it through their paces. Preceded by the band and headed by Cadet Major Wilkinson and his staff, the entire organization, in full dress uniform, passed in review before the Inspecting Officer and Major Walker, the U. of F. Commanding Offier. and formed in company colunin for inspection Then, followed the rigid irwpcction of the individual members of the battalion. The urnforms and equipment of each man wvas subjected to the close and careful scrutiny of the inspecting offier.,1 After this inspection was finished, the companies were, one by one, put through various movements of both close and extended order dnll, including platoon drfill, bayonet practice, rifle exercise, loading and firing, displayment. and patrol work. As the next maneuver, the companies were broken up into their squads, and, under command of their corporals, squad drill was given. The companies then assembled into battalion formation and, commanded by the Cadet Major, executed a number of the complex battalion movements. The inspection was concluded by a full dress parade. Then the companies were dismissed. The entire affair was earrned out with great skill and efficiency and received the well merited praise of all who witnessed the inspection. Lieutenant Colonel Boyce stated that battalion made an excellent showing. He further stated that the training in the university would be of immense value to the cadets in preparation for army service later on, if it becomes necessary for them to enter it, and that it is his belief that, under proper training, fully 99 per cent of them would become offers. Major Walker, U. S. Army, Retired, the commanding offier and instructor in military science and tactics, was highly pleased over the work of the battalion, and stated that, without a doubt, the inspection was the best that has ever been passed in the history of the University. gratifying when one co only comparatively few students of the past t' years returned to school t the majority of the older tered some branch of and that the material on 1 This is very nsiders that of the older NO or three Lhis year( as students enthe sen-ice),. hand. besides n1"nig"onth and a half of school this term, more complicated work ,s. to be gien the cadets than they have yev had, so that, when the term is ov er. they will possess a good knowledge of the fundamental principles of modern warfare.
