“This Way to the Big Tent * * * ”
Shades of P. T. Barnum! Big Jumbo, the acrobatic dogs,
Emma the Fat Lady, and all the rest of the three-ring circus
will have nothing on the activities of the stunts committee when
they get going from April 23 to 26. For all the features of the
big tent will be on hand, if the student body demands amuse
ment along with raising money for the Student Union.
On the theory that contented cows appreciate the soft strains
of phonograph music while they are being milked, the commit
tee is planning to tickle the campus funny bone while the work
ers filch their pennies and get on their generosity nerves.
The best salesmen tell their customers what they want to
hear and above all get them in a rollicking mood, then they
put over their deals. A gullible customer — and most of us
are gullible—can be skillfully inveigled into the clutches of the
congenial salesman. He tells you how beautiful you are, how in
telligent, how hard you are to fool, how much he likes you. He
apologizes for taking your time, speaks rapidly and wittily to
keep from boring you, and in the meantime disperses those
traces of Scotch frugality you thought you had and makes you
want to give your money away.
The stunts committee thinks it can put you in this hu
mor. They will enact their mountebankish roles from the be
ginning to the end of the Student Union campaign. When they
make faces at you, you will laugh. When they sing, you will
dance. And when they ask you for support of the Student
Union drive you will pledge yourselves, and rejoice!
“A Hale Fellow—Well Met* , :
John R. Giblyn of New York and all good hotels, every
where—the type of man Oregon students are glad to welcome—
has come and gone.
Wit, orator, good fellow and wise counselor, he dropped
into the school of journalism yesterday at ten. Fifty minutes
later lie rushed for his train, saying hasty farewells amid laugh
ter, questions, humorous sallies, and hearty handclasps of new
John R. Giblyn knows newspapers and newspaper men. He
knows schools of journalism and journalism students. He
knows life and the ideals according to which life ought to be
lived. He knows books and the people who write books. He
is traveling representative for D. Appleton and Company, but
most of all he represents character, culture and personality.
From Paul of Tarsus to Sir Philip Gibbs from Junius to Ed
Howe, from the Portland Oregonian to the Berliner Tageblatt,
or the catastrophe in Europe to the cute remark whispered by
two girls in the editing class, he caught up past instances and
poured them forth in a sparkling cascade of humor and ex
perience glistening with humor and deep with purpose.
Mr. Giblyn talked of the ten best papers in America and the |
four best in Europe. Among the former he placed the Port- i
land Oregonian. Ho talked of the schools of journalism—he \
has seen them all and sees them every year—and he declared 1
Oregon was everywhere rated among the best three. He talked
of the things that will make the sound and worthy professional
journalist of the future and urged the students to line up with
the journalism of knowledge, clear purpose, equity and intel
ligence. | • ~ | »'
Mr. Giblyn travels to find out what new books the profes
sors and writers of the country have in preparation and to get
the best manuscripts for Appletons’. He also checks up to see
if the different universities are using their due proportion of
Appleton books. His dynamic quality as a speakrr was dis
covered almost accidentally when Dean Allen asked him to
meet the editing class. He is an amateur of life, a lover of
books, says he cares little for money, and when he speaks it is
just for the fun of it, and for self-expression. Meeting Mr. |
Giblyn was a stimulating experience and of all the travelers who
visit the campus he will be one of those who will get the heart
iest welcome when he comes again.

Form Is Simplified for Use
in Compiling Costs
A simplified questionnaire de
signed especially for the small retail
merchants is being .gent out by
I the school of business administra
j tion of the University for the pur
j posei of compiling Oregon retail
i store costs. At the convention of
jOregon retail merchants held on the
! campus in February, this improyed
type of questionnaire was worked
out to fit the needs of the small
store. There is another question
naire which is being drawn up for
j the use of the merchant who owns
a larger store.
The merchants in attendance at
the 1924 convention were unanimous
for a more universal reply to the
questionnaires than was received
last year. To make this more pos
sible, the form of the report has
been revised. It is now in two
parts, one which can easily be
filled out by the merchants, and the
other which is more difficult to

are used exclusively for statistical
purposes, and the information re
ceived is treated confidentially.
