The Mason City negative case was argued by Arnold Tice and Dick Stevens. The affirmative was upheld by Marlys Taylor and Adrienne Kohl. Mason City won both decisions given by Carl Cowan, expert judge from Eagle Grove. Mr. Cowan's chief criticism of the debate can be summed up briefly in the following statements: "Osage did not clash with the affirmative case. It was the rebuttal of Mason City that really won the affirmative case for them. Osage's affirmative did not present enough proof to establish the main issues in view of the ueg-. ative attack." Tom Yoseloff and Virgil Shook, affirmative, and Bill Swanson and Thayer Curry, negative, of the Junior college met Luther college at Decorali Wednesday in a non-decision critic debate.
