Baylor Students To Debate British National Team Nov. 1

Oct. 30, 2000

Two Baylor University students will debate members of the British National Debate Team at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 1, in Jones Theater in the Hooper-Schaefer Fine Arts Center on the Baylor campus as part of the annual Rufus and Alline Huff Debate on U.S. Foreign Policy.

The two-person British team of Bobby Webster, a student at Cambridge University, and Matthew Butt, a law student at the University of London, will debate Baylor students Mathew Titus, a junior from Emporia, Kan., who is majoring in philosophy, and Robert Little, a junior from Sherman, who is majoring in political science.

The topic of this year's debate will be "Resolved: This House Would Ban Guns," which will explore whether the U.S. should ban guns. The British team, which selected the topic, will take the affirmative position.

Sponsored by Baylor's department of communication studies and the Glenn R. Capp Debate Forum, the event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Dr. Karla Leeper, associate professor of communication studies and The Glenn R. Capp Professor of Forensics, at 710-6919.
