Arthur FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE SARASOTA--Two New College debate teams ventured off to intercollegiate competition last weekend and returned with high rankings in each plus one trophy for individual performance. Entering their second and third competitions as an organized group, New College debaters placed second at the University of South Florida Novice Debate Tourney and third at the Falcon Speech Festival at Miami-Dade Junior College. In the first, they competed against a total of 11 other colleges and universities and at the latter against 16 such institutions. Rye Weber, a second year student from Colorado Springs, Colo., won a trophy for first place in oral interpretation competing against 23 other students at the Falcon Festival. Debate Coach Marshall Barry sent out the two debate groups only a few weeks after they had been formally organized under his direction. more

Arguing both sides of the national collegiate debate topic for 1967-68, "Resolved that the government should guarantee to every citizen a minimum cash income," were Allan Jaworski of Passaic, N.J., Donald Heth of Bellevue, Wash., Christopher Arbak of Tacoma, Wash., and Larry Hunt of Springfield, Mo. Helping the team to third place in Miami were teams made up of Nicholas Munger of Van Wert, Ohio, Charles Vekert of St. Clair Shores, Michigan, Dan Haggarty of Chippewa Falls, Wis., and Rose Stetler of Lancaster, Penna. In the full scale Miami tournament, the team also entered Patricia Sanderson of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., and Don Aronoff of New York, N.Y. in extemporaneous speaking, Haggary and Vekert in persuasive speaking and in the event which Miss Weber won first, oral interpretation, Munger also competed. Placing of the two teams in the weekend events gave the new debate group a record of having finished within the top three places in the three tournaments entered. Earlier in the fall, the debate team won a first place at a competition in Gainesville. Barry, a tutor in economics at New College, said that the record of the college was even more notable since debate is
