Claremont Colleges Debate Union: This House Believes that England is the World's Greatest Nation
CLAREMONT COLLEGES DEBATE UNION VS. BRITISH DEBATE TEAM
Wednesday, November 12, 1986
Wednesday, November 12, the Athenaeum will host a debate between two members of the five-college debate team and two of their British counterparts. The topic is "This house believes that England is the world's greatest nation," and the Claremont team will be arguing the affirmative. The British team consists of two graduate law students, Mark Malcolnson, of the University of Edinburgh, and Gary Bell from Bristol University. Both have impressive resumes and should prove to be formidable opponents. Following dinner at 6:00 p.m., the debate begins at 7:00 and closes with follow-up questions.
