Transcript Speech Forensic Society MEMBERS—First row: Pat Richmond, Katherine Taylor, Sondra Walters, Eleanor Silberg, Mrs. Carolyn Yarbrough. Second row: Dr. Don Streeter, Russel Stanley, Richard Caldwell, Shelby Zimmerman, Bo Williamson, Jim Perdue, Franklin Olson, Emerson Turner. Third row: Mr. Gerard Wagnor, Terry Thomp- son, Tom Kinnear, Eugene Cook, Louis Patronella, Mr. A. Luke. Debaters and fast talkers find a good outlet for their abilities in the Forensic Society. The purpose of the society is to foster the development of public speaking and debating skills through organization. Members of the society participate in debates, public speaking events, oratory, extemporaneous speaking, oral interpretations and poetry readings. This year the group trapped the first place title in the District Three West Point Qualifying Tournament held at Texas Christian University. The debating team broke a record by being the first team to go undefeated in the tournament. Bo Williamson and Terry Thompson won second place in the Cross Exam Debate at Gulf State Tournament. The Tournament was hosted by Mississippi State College. David DuBose and Richard Caldwell took first place at the Owen L. Coon Memorial Tournament at the Northwestern University Tournament in Illinois. The Society copped second place in the Baylor International Debate Tournament in Waco and won third place honors at the Heart of America Tournament at Kansas University. All in all, the Forensic Society proved without a doubt that 1958 and 1959 was a great year for talkers. 411
