Wrigley and the Engine
Many retailers have stocked merchandise that
was supposed to sell because of a flurry of adver
tising to appear in local papers. The following
story recently told of William Wrigley illustrates
the continual effort necessary to keep goods before
While riding on a train Mr. Wrigley was told
by a friend that his product was so widely known
he was wasting money by continually advertising.
“If the engine were to be cut off from this
train what would happen?” asked Mr. Wrigley.
“The train would coast for a while and then
come to a stop.”
“Exactly,” said Mr. Wrigley. “And if I should
cut off advertising my business would coast for a
while and then stop.”

IT’S A WOW
j HAS SHOP FACILITIES
| Special Apparatus Forms
Made By Mechanic
The chemistry laboratory depart
ment now has its own shop in which
i apparatus can be made and recon
| structed. The department has own
; ed certain shop tools for a number
[of years but only within the last
;year has it been possible to secure
the service of a full time mechanic
to do shop work.
Much of the apparatus used in
science laboratories is expensive and
can be made on the campus with a
considerable saving of laboratory
j funds, explained Professor O. F.
j Stafford. Special forms of appar
; atus also have to be constructed in
j the process of research work, as
j often alterations and reconstruc
tions are required which make shelf
j facilities very necessary.
In the large institutions, such as
the University of California, each
laboratory department has its own
shop with sometimes several me
chanics employed. Professor Stod
dard believes the installations of
such a shop in the chemistry de
partment is one indication that the
University of Oregon is moving into
j the class of real universities as it
shows that the time has come when
research interests here demand the
same kind of resources as are found
in large research institutions.
Heretofore, the members of the
chemistry staff have been obliged to
do the best they could themselves
with the tools at hand. Professor
Stafford stated, and he finds it
gratifying that the mechanics em
ployed here is finding really much
more demand for his services than
he alone can supply.
