The Emerald wishes to express its
appreciation of the support the Eu
gene business men have given it
during the past year and especially
during the last three months.
They have made it possible to put
out a six page issue twice a week,
and occasionally an eight page issue.
They have helped very materially to
liquidate a debt of $200 and put the
paper on a sound financial footing,
and what is more, they have done
this cheerfully and willingly.
These men are the University’s
true friends, for they are friends in
time of need.
From all points of view this com
monwealth conference has been the
most successful conference of its kind
that has been held in the state. The
attendance is much larger, the
speakers are well up in their subject
matter, the discussions are lively and
to the point, and the subjects touch
vital conditions in our commonwealth
This annual conference has proven
itself to be worth while, and Profes

PHANTOM BAND MAKES
APPEARANCE IN SERENADE
A phantom band invaded the sor
ority district last night with any
thing but phantom music, and seren
aded lustily. Their rendition of vari
ous well known selections was
marked by the entire absence of any
thing usually known as tune, but it
was full of powerful feeling and
made the welkin ring, at least.
It is rumored, that Abe Blackman
connected with a strictly fresh ranch
egg thrown by Ray Early, and that
some people wished that others had
connected. However, the player of
the first harmonica said, when inter
viewed, that in general their recep
tion was warm.

Do You Taste City Water?
Roy Fitch, a senior in the depart
ment of chemistry, has been carry
ing on a series of interesting exper
iments to determine whether or not
we can taste any hypochlorite in the
Eugene water. It is quite common
to hear citizens of this city remark
that the water is alright, except for
the disagreeable taste of the chlor
ine, which is placed in the filter to
kill the germs, and which gets
through the filter and into the water
In samples containing water from
the mill race, which contained no
hypochlorite, out of 98 who sam
pled, 32 or 33 per cent declared they
tasted hypochlorite. In samples con
taining as much hypochlorite as is
used in filtering, 33 per cent declared
they tasted it.
The table of results shows the fol
1 y2 more than filter, 47 per cent
2 more than filter, 47 per cent
2y2 more than filter, 52 per cent
3 more than filter, 81 per cent
Now when we consider that 90 per
cent of the hypochlorite which is used
in filtering fails to get through the
filter, and that three times as much
of this chemical as goes into the fil
ter must be added to water before a
majority of the drinkers are able to
discern its presence, we get a good
idea of how great a part auto sug
gestion plays in the determination of
