IDS WILL TIE OFF PROMINENT STUDENTS Oregana Announces New Fea tures in Advertising and Literary Departments A series of mock or fake advertise ments, consisting of clever take-offs on prominent and near prominent college men, will he one of the features of this year's Oregana, copy for which is now in the hands of the printer. These ads. are expected to serve the double pur pose of helping out the regular patrons of the advertising section of the hook and providing interesting reading for the students. The literary department of this book is expected to prove a sensation, as it contains several stories that are said to he far above the average found in the ordinary college annual. This de dartment is not often given much at tention, but Editor Robison has devot ed his best efforts to it this year. Two stories are particularly worth mentioning. One is “The Last of the Class of Thirty-two,” a story that Pro fessors llowe and Tlnirber declare will live in the world’s literature. “The Man Who Smiled” is another that, while shorter, is of high merit. Dean Collins has also consented to have his master piece, “The Alchemist,” appear for the first time in the Oregana. This is a po em of unusual merit an dwill be looked forward to with interest by the stu dents, whom he has entertained by his clever work in the Monthly during the past year.
