night in his 88th year.
Just before" Christmas, the fa
mous English author caught cold
and was confined to his bed. The
illness did not appear to be serious,
somewhat alarmed because of Har
dy 's advanced age.
Cold Gets Worse.
His condition began to grow worse

Thomas Hardy, brilliant conver

dramatist and novelist, beloved, by
millions and seen by few, was a shy,
self-affacing little man living al
most entirely in his world of dreams.
So unassuming was his manner that

All University of Oregon men, in

any desire to do so, are urged to
present themselves at 103 Sociology

The contests in which the Uni- ]

tryouts must deliver an original
option about 10 minutes in length,
Mr. Horner said. The orations may
be on any subject, though the com
petitors will perhaps find it advan

jects to be used later in the con
tests, Mr. Horner said. All stu
dents interested in competing should

“We are greatly in need of new
competitors for the oratorical con- ,
tests,” Mr. Horner said. “None of

“How c3o you spell ‘financially’?” asked a college student
of his room-mate.
“F-i-n-a-n-c-i-a-l-l-y,” said the room-mate, spelling but
the word slowly. As an afterthought, he added: “And
‘embarrassed’ has two r’s and two s’s.”
How often have you said to a salesman, “That’s more
than I care to pay’’ ? If you had known the price in advance
you would have been spared this little embarassment.
That’s one of the great servics rendered by newspaper ad
By reading the advertisements before going to the stores,
you know what you will have to pay for an article. You
need not reveal your financial status to a salesman. You
perhaps do not like to ask the price of goods anyhow. If
the merchant has told you the price in his advertisements,
you not have to ask.
Any way you figure it out, it pays you to read the adver
tisements. Regularly! 1 he one advertisement you skip
may contain just the news you would have welcomed.
Read all the advertisments you can. Keep informed.
The intelligent way to shop is to read the advertisements
and then go to the stores that offer the best values. Make
notes beforehand of the articles that interest you. That’s
the way to get the most for your money. That’s the way
to save time.
When yon know the price in advance,
you can ask to be shown the
goods “as advertised”
