American Students Will
Be Guests on Eight
The International Confederation
of Students is arranging twelve
programs for this summer when a
paTty of twelve or fourteen Ameri
can students can spend about eight
weehs as guest* of European stu
dents. The first tour is scheduled
for June 19 to September 15. The
other tours are interspersed through
out tho vacation months of July,
August, and September.
Concessions in fare and passages
have been granted to the Confedera
tion by the authorities, so the separ
ate trips will average about $500,
some run “ as high as $695, but a
number are as low as $40u.
A wide range of cities are in
cluded in the program, but a visit
to Geneva, Switzerland and Paris,
Prance are scheduled in almost all
the tours. The programs are: Tour
1, England; Tour 2, Prance and
Switzerland; Tour 3, Central Eu
rope; Tour 4, Western Europe;;
Tour 5, London, Berlin, Paris and
Geneva; Tour 6, The Grand Tour;
Tour 7, Around the Baltic; Tour 8,
The Balkan Peninsula. Pour other
tours will take in Begium, Germany
and the Scandinavian peninsula.
The purpose of these vacation
programs is to foster relations be
tween American and European stu
dents. They are not the usual tour
ist trips in which one visits Gothic
castles and museums only. The stu
dents who are fortunate enough to
go abroad under the Confederation
will be entertained by students
abroad, will attend varied public
functions, formal and informal part
ies and tramp through picturesque
villages with them. The tours will
be truly educational, yet one does
not have to study.
The full particulars on the vari
ous tours can be obtained by writ
ing to The Open Boad, Inc., Amer
ican Travel Representative of the
C.I.E. in New York City, N. Y.
Peculiar Moss Forms
Found by Botanists
Seven different liverwort forms
of Hepatic mosses were found by
botanists who visited Judkin’s
point yesterday. Miss Ethel San

Another kind of moss sends up
tiny needle-like blades jn which
the spores are hidden. The shoots
do not enlarge, but merely turn
black in the portions where the
spores are lodged.
The different varieties , of moss
are kept on plates containing heavy
paper which is kept wet. Glass jars
are placed over these and the plants
remain green and thriving for

Junior Vod-vil Sidelights
Phi Delts Pass Out
It. took just exactly 25 milk pails
of water to revive the butter and
egg boys from the Phi Delt “Mud
Slingers” house, last night after tho
McPhillip’s High-Kick girls finish
ed their Hotty-Hot act.
It was a hot act alright—steam rose
from the brows of the S.A.E. ’s
(Sleep And Eat boys), but they
seemed to hold themselvos back
from rushing the stage.
The Chi Psi “Loggers” and the
Kappa Delta Phi “Sawdust Eat
ers,” fell head-on into the orchestra
pit in a vain attempt to get a bet
ter view—a case where over anx
iousness lost out.
Jack Gin Seabrook—the ham front

led the yells between acts—to en
courage the actors with Oregon
spirits (ginger-ale—pale dry).

Obak Has Special Sale
Owing to the large demand for
cigars created by such handshakers
as Sol Abramson and Jim Johnson,
Obak has been able to order a
quantity lot of cigars for election
eering purposes. These fags will
be offered only to those who' can
prove they are genuino opponents
in the coming voting fracus. It will
pay every candidate to take ad
vantage of this reduction in order
to put his best hand forward with
one of Obaks choice smokes.
If opportunity affords, be sure and
accept one of Sol Abramson’s eee
gars as they are of a much higher
quality than the average run of
campaign fags. Sol has had these'
weeds ordered for several months.
His, Word is his Bond
A “Personal guarantee” means very little to you. Unless
you know the man who makes it.
Ninety £er cent of the things bought for your home are se
lected by the house manager. He is the purchasing agent.
Most men admit that he is a capable buyer, and the reason
is this: he must be shown — convinced by proof — that an
article is what the house needs and is worth the price!
For that reason, he sees the advantage of dealing with a local
merchant-—a man whose “personal guarantee of satisfaction”
means just what it says.
The manager knows that what he advertises in this paper is
entitled to his consideration. Because he has confidence in
his neighbor—the local dealer—he can safely invest the house
funds in what he guarantees.
