TO DEBATE Music Instructor i o BEREA COLLEGE O ON AUGUST 13! Andrew C. Wallace Heads Corporation Former University Student I President 'of Cinderella Slipper Shops, Inc. Arrangements have been made for a series of intercollegiate debates between summer session students of the University and Berea College. Tentative debates have been scheduled for August 13, one of which will be held in Berea and the other of that date Is to be staged in Lexington. Debating during the summer school is not a regular feature In Kentucky, but it is believed that much Interest will be aroused by this forensic endeavor. William Rldgeley Pierce, of Mott, S. D., Is the University's outstanding man in the contests and much Is expected to him. His ability as a debater is exceptional. Clifford Amyx, University freshman, will probably see action as a member of the school's team, as will William Dysard, who besides being an able debater, Is out for football. Bcrea's trio will consist of Escum Moore andParls Ballou, debaters of several years' experience. Berea's third man will probably be a more experienced man than either of the two above mentioned. The subject to be argued Is one of great, Interest at this time. It is: "Resolved that the government should own and operated hydroelectric power sites." Mr. Andrew C. Wallace, recently Slipper Shops, Inc., who manages the central store located in Lexington, has announced the opening of a new store at Ashland. Mr. Wallace formerly attended the University. The second of .the .shops was opened at Pikevllle about a month and a .half ago, and .according to Mr. Wallace, Jias given very satisfactory results, showing that a complete chain of the stores may be operated Jn the state. The Cinderella .Sbpper Shop Company was Incorporated .three months ago, with Mv. Wallace and general manager, :nnd W. W. Peavyhouse as secretary sand treasurer. Mr. Wallace recently marled Miss JBerfcha Peoples, who Is a senior at the University, and a .member of the '.Chi Omega .sorority.

Miss Wilson is a vocalist ot athaving studied under tainment, well-knoteachers in New York and Chicago.

Between 1923 and 1928 Miss Wilson was a member of the music faculty at Western State Teachers' College where she conducted the A Cappefia Choir and gave various operettas and concerts. The appointment of Miss Wilson was made necessary by the greatly enlarged demand within the last few years for competently trained music supervisors and the consequent great Increase in the enrollment in the music department at the University. Virtually all graduates with the degree of B. S. in music are placed in jobs and last year more teachers of this character, were wanted than could be supplied. Prof. Carl A. Lampert is nead of the University's department oS music and besides professional beacher conrses, cultural courses in various phases of music are given.
