    The final of the 7th Thinking and Speculating debate is held in Lecture Hall, Hongyi Building, at 16:00 in Nov. 19th. The debating parties are School of Accounting and School of Management. Professor Gao Zheng-ping, the vice president of Tianjin University of Finance and Economics and the president of Pearl River College judges the contest, attending with the other staff. The leaders from relevant departments and the persons from Studies Ministry take part in the contest. Hundreds of students watch the whole contest.

    The topic of positive side is: College students discipline themselves by means of law. The topic of negative side is: college students discipline themselves according to morals. At the beginning, affirmative leader and negative leader state their respective ideas. During the contest, the fourth debaters of both sides point out adversary’s faults and stress their advantages. The second debater of positive side challenges the negative side, based on the idea that college students should discipline themselves and morals can’t replace law, requiring the negative side answer directly. The second and third debaters of negative side answer the doubt of positive side, mentioning the cases to illustrate the point “discipline themselves according to morals”, which reflects the quick-witted ability. During the free debate session, both sides discuss seriously. The positive side holds the view that college students discipline themselves by means of law on the basis of “Ten not permitting at Campus”. The negative side points out that college students discipline themselves according to morals on the basis of school motto. The theory of debate is closely related to school practices. In the course of summarizing the statements, the fourth debater of the negative side concludes their opinions in terms of law, relating to the connotation and spirit of school motto. The fourth debater of the positive side points out the disadvantages and demonstrates that college students should have the principle of law and become ideal college students.

    After the contest, “who is the best debater” is started. The candidates draw the debate theme in turn and deliver impromptu speech within 30 seconds. The candidates start their speeches from the perspectives of classic literature, the dream of childhood and personal experiences. The fourth candidate from School of Arts, XueRuo-xuan, makes an excellent speech with a soft sound and confidence, which makes a deep impression on the audience.

    Mr. Li Jian-hang, Secretary of the Party Committee, comments on the contest. At  first, he congratulates to the both sides. Then, he mentions that the contest is very successful. On the one hand, both sides grab the theme and illustrate respective opinions thoroughly. On the other hand, both sides lack deep studies, paying more attention to law and morals, not noticing the key words of the theme “more” and “discipline”. If both sides cling to the key words, they will present their opinions and details better in the contest. Mr. Li stresses that morals and law play vital role in the development of modern society, relying on socialist core values and the principle of law. At the same time, he also makes a thorough explanation on skills and principles of debate, which improves the comprehensive debating ability of students. He hopes that students discipline themselves in terms of moral and laws during the study and life.

    Vice minister of Studies Ministry, Miss. Wang Hui-juan declares the results: the champion is School of Management, the finalist is School of Arts, the best debater is Xue Ruo-xuan, the popular debater is Li Jia-lu. The vice presidents, Mr. Li Jin-liang and Mr. Li Xiao-peng, award certificates and elaborately to the individuals and groups.

    Professor Gao Zheng-ping, the vice president of Tianjin University of Finance and Economics and the president of Pearl River College, makes a summary on the contest. He congratulates to the individuals and groups on the part of college leads. He also expresses gratitude to the teachers and students who attend the contest. He emphasizes that the contest plays a significant role on the ability of thinking and speculating, which has a good effect on the improvement of students’ abilities.
