A nice piece of Oxford Union ephemera, with the three signatures - 'James Robertson-Justice.', 'Compton Mackenzie' and 'Michael Maclagan' - printed in a row on the otherwise blank reverse of the 25.5 x 20.5 cm leaf, which is aged and worn, with closed tears to extremities and a fold line. Printed beneath the text of the advertisement on the other side of the paper is an attractive illustration in imitation of infant drawing, printed in brown, red, green black and white on a pink ground. The entire text reads: 'OXFORD UNION SOCIETY | Thursday, May 26th, 1955, at 8.15 p.m. | EIGHTS WEEK DEBATE | Visit of | Mr. MICHAEL MACLAGAN | Mr. JAMES ROBERTSON JUSTICE | and | Sir COMPTON MACKENZIE | Question for Debate: | "This House Would Never Be Young Twice." | Proposed by Mr. ALEC GRANT, Merton | Opposed by Mr. PETER CHILVER, St. Edmund Hall | Mr. MICHAEL BROWN, Wadham, will speak third | Mr. MICHAEL MACLAGAN, Christ Church and Trinity, will speak fourth | Mr. JAMES ROBERTSON JUSTICE, J.
