"2. Under each question are given the main lines of argument, afirmative and negative. These arguments are stated in distinct, concise pro. positions (usually four each) which cover the issues in the question, and which, if proved, will establish the case on the one side or the other. The detailed proof of each proposition is left for the individual debater to work out, since elaborate briefs are apt to confuse rather than aid the average student, and a detailed outline does not leave room for desired original treatment.
"3. The arguments on each side are followed by references, selected for the definite purpose of substantiating the propositions as stated. Only a few of the best references are given, and these will be found amply sufficient for the average student debater. Those desiring to read more exhaustively on a subject, as in the case of an intercollegiate or interscholastic debate, will of course consult other reference lists, such as Poole's Index and The Reader's Guide. But for the general use for which this book is intended a multiplicity of references, it is believed, ño::!? 59 more confusing than helpful: and it has been the aim of the authors to make careful selections, chosen rith a view of their direct bearing upon the outlined arguments."-Preface.

"This book treats of the various ways of convincing and persuading men. While intended as a text-book for schools and colleges, it is also adapted to the needs of the lawyer, the preacher, the teacher, the citizen; in short, to any one who is called upon-and who is not?-to urge the acceptance of his ideas upon a hearer, or to refute ideas offered in opposition thereto.
"This book aims to meet the needs not only of the expert in argumentation, but also of the practical debater. The average citizen is called upon to argue orally far oftener than he is required to present a written argument; and of what avail is his knowledge and logic if they cannot be utilized in the discussions of every-day life? However, any attempt to teach debate in a thorough and systematic manner must involve the study of argumentative composition. A treatise on debate, therefore, must include the subject of argumentation in all its phases—analysis, evidence, proof, the different kinds of arguments and how to meet them. But the present volume goes further than this, and aims to show the student how he may utilize his training in writing when he is called upon to present his arguments orally before an actual audience and in the presence of an opponent who is waiting to reply.
"In the one hundred and fifty questions for debate contained in the Appendix will be found a wide range of subjects for special investigations, discussions, and moot court practice."-Preface.

"The literature on the subject of debate has become so extensivo that the essentials would be hard to sift, even if they knew the sources of information. This compilation is designed to aid such students la picking up quickly the essential principles of the debater's art. No clalo
is made for originality, and due credit has been given for all material that has been borrowed. For the sake of brevity, references are made to the various treatises on the subject by giving the names of the authors only.

“In compiling this book, the aim has been to make a compact manual for beginners in debate. With this aim in view, many of the technicalities of logic and argumentation have been omitted, and only those logical forms have been included which seem essential. The advantage of such a book should be to give pupils enough of the theory to make their practice debates intellectually profitable, and to do this without unnecessary loss of time.
*The manual is intended for use as a drill book. Hence, in immediato connection with each logical form is given the method of its refutation; Examples are added for practice, and the summary is in the form of a table for ready reference.
