Joseph Levinson, a Jewish law student at George Washington University has been chosen as one of three debaters to represent the University in the international debate between George Washington University and the University of Cambridge, England. The debate started yesterday.

The event is an outstanding feature in the intellectual life of the national capital. The honor accorded to the Jewish student is particularly noteworthy in view of the large number of candidates from which Levinson and his colleagues were chosen. The George Washington University has 5,000 students. The members of the Cambridge team are all sons of leading British statesmen.
