LL on tho sly it seems that Bill
•T\. Adams, as chairman of cam
pus registration last month, was
wagging tho entire national body
politic from his obscure booth in
front of Oregon building. Anyway ]
that’s the burden of a sheaf of evi
dence ho has just received from aa^
anonymous critic down in Los Ang
' Although Bill ’b attacker writes
.with the malice of a Swift and the
candor of a Rabelais, liis fervor
leads him into lapses from the stan
dards sot by postal authorities as
ordinary decency and forbids our
use of tho original manuscript. Tak
ing a clipping of a campus registra
tion news article as hi* text, ho
editorializes through sovorai pages
of vari-colorod scrap paper and half
a red crayon, wielded with more
freedom than Webster sanctions.
Through reiteration, the critic
makes his hearty dislike of “King
Al” and Queen Mario the most co
herent ideas in his tirade. And ap
parently lloovcr’s commission in
Belgium and Roumania entitles him
tc the dubbing as “side-kick” of their
highnesses. Since the newspaper ex- |
eerpt faithfully reported a Repub
lican influence on the campus which
showed up in the registration in a
ratio of 201 to 43 of the less dom
inant party in the state, the dia
tribist perforce concedes Oregon \s
vote ns belonging to Hoover. Hence
Bill’s implication in the machina
tions of the royalist party.
The unique contribution winds up !
emphatically, “Boob education plus
Boob production—Bums and Saps.”
In witness whereof there is included
a clipping with an Oregon Agricul
tural College dateline and another
from Southern California University;
marginal notes characterize their
students respectively as “vacant
skulls” and “wop coddlers.”
Vengefully inclined students of
the several maligned institutions
will be pleased to hear that a wea
pon more horrible than the one
which decapitated the foremost
among criers in the wilderness is
being whetted against this one. lie

‘STUDENTS’ DAY” SLATED
FOR STATE UNIVERSITY
Event Expected To Prove Valuable ;
To Campus Folk
EUGENE, Ore., May 3, 1928—
(Special)—One entire week-end,
exact dat(js as yet unannounced, has
been set aside by University offi
cials as “Students’ Day.” During
the two days there will be no dele
gates, guests, or visitors allowed,
and the entire time will be devoted
to showing University students
around the campus.
Special emphasis will be placed
on class rooms. Students will be
conducted through them and it is
hoped in this way to create enough
interest so they will visit them dur
ing any spare time they may have
during the year.

I am a veteran of the Edgeworth

I make this claim, challenging all
comers, to have smoked Edgeworth
and nothing else but Edgeworth (when
it was possible to get if) for a longer
period than any other person within
the scope of your territory.
I have smoked Edgeworth for
twenty-one years and will soon start
on the twenty-second.
I’ll admit to having tried other
brands, inciudingso-termed high-class,
high-priced blends and mixtures,
enough to appreciate and satisfy my
self of the superiority of Edgeworth.
In all these years I have never had
one can of Edgeworth that varied in
