Inspection of Plant
Should Include Teachers
“TAADS,” on organization limited
to fathers of students at the
University, sprang into being only
last term, but already it has taken
on the shape of an instrument that
means business. At a brenfast get
togethor of the executive committee
last, Sunday the members talked
ovpr the student situation at the
University and made some decisions,
mysteries as yet to the public^
which are hinted to bo epochal. 1
Two weeks from Thursday the
same body is coming down to the
campus to look over the condition
of students and University at first
hand. Their avowed interest, in the
main, is to find out as well as they
can in so limited a time just about
the present working facilities in
each school and department.
Although the investigating group
will bo handicapped by the brevity
of their visit, as eflj&jrt executives
and men of affairs approuching the
educational plant in an attitude of
helpful criticism, no doubt they will
be able to see many lacks and dis
crepancies that have escaped the
more accustomed eyes of the men on
the job.
Certain it is, anyway, that what
ever their suggestions may be for
the betterment of instruction, equip
ment, or what not, their qualifica
tions as critics will go unchallenged.
And whether their sampling of the
University as it is now conducted
seems sweet or sour to them, it will
be from a fresh viewpoint of im
mense value to Oregon. The policy
of the administration is more sensi
tive to the will of the fathers than
to that of any other possible com
bination of men in the state.
For this reason, the Emerald is
anxious, for the students’ part, that
the Dads, if it is at all feasible in
the one day they are spending with
us, give a fair proportion of it to a
scrutiny of the faculty staff, llow
does the Oregon faculty size up
alongside those of similar institu
tions f
There has been u lot of desultory
student comment this year in par
ticular about professors who are
lured away from Oregon by irresist
ible bait; too often limy have been
tho kind we are sorriest to lose. I

remedy wo shall be grateful. Tin
human factor in the University’
teaching equipment should commani

each rider strives to get the mos
for his money. The joker in tin
deck is that there are still some win

Oregon sports managers tell of tin
efficient working of the Knights ol

teams at the University of Wash

they complain of the difficulty oi
getting co-operation in caring foi
teams visiting Eugene. Tho Oregot

for tho chosen few.

Co-e<l Takes ’Plane Trip
With Father to Seattle
Myrtis durst, sophomore in busi
ness administration, arrived bark on
the campus Sunday afternoon to tell
her friends about her latest experi
ence in the aviation world. Leav
ing Eugene Friday, she traveled to
Seattle with her father, Vein
dorst,, pioneer aviation man on the
coast, and the rest of the (Joist
family and Saturday had the honor
of “breaking the bottlo”ovor the
prow of the new seaplane which her
father just had built for himself,
‘“'1 christen thee Zephyr. May
the spirit of the West carry you
safely over the seven seas.’’ With
these words, .Myitis concluded the
christening ceremony, on Baud
I'oint, which was attended by a
number of Seattle aviators and
those interested in flying. Follow
ing this she and her father went on
a "peach of a trip,” as she called it,
over the district surrounding Seattle.
The flying boat is a Boeing plane
of the pusher type, the Wright
Whirlwind motor being above and
behind the passenger cabin so that
the vision of passengers will be un
obstructed. Four passengers in ad
dition to the pilot can be carried in
the interior of the luxurious cabin.
The cost of the plane was $10,000.

(We are indebted to the Oregon

which was taken from its account of
“Dream Follies’’ following the
Portland showing):
“The interpretation of a

Banks, eccentric dancer, nearly

the stage his grass skirt became

CROWD.” A Harry Langdon fan
who enjoys seeing our frigid faced
hero semaphore emotions to his
audience might get his money’s
worth from this picture?—providing
everything besides Langdon could
be eliminated. The plot just simply
isn’t. Once in a while a good gag
struggles free, but the most of them
are quickly drowned in wishy-washy
bathos. Langdon helps a poor girl
and her ehee-ild through reels of
snow to a bleak ending when the

a sloppy start, but long before the
end it more than redeems itself.
We haven’t read the novel of the
same name by Count Leo Tolstoy,
upon yvhich the picture is based, but
if it is half as good as the motion
picture, we want to read it. Dolores
Del Rio does some magnificent act
ing, with Rod La Roche a close sec
ond. This is one film drama that
can be truthfully called powerful,
beautiful and human. It is well
worth seeing.
Also there is an atmospheric pro

hilarating pictures for which Haines
is famous, including some of his
best sub-titles and gags. As a I’lebe,
he learns the spirit of the Corps by
his cocky attitude towards every

proves that he is of the right stuff
when he gets the chance to show
his merit for his team against the
Navy in their annual gridiron clas
sic. Joan Crawford co-stars with
JIaines as Betty Channing, one of
those impulses for bigger and better
love affairs; this is one typo of
picture that is unusual in that it
shows America’s young men at their
best; tiie pick of the nation. So

Never Gets
a "Bite” From
This Tobacco
Jasper, Tenn,
March 23, 1927
Larus& Bro. Co.
Richmond, Va.
I have always wanted to smoke a
pipe. After several attempts I gave
my “taste” up, for with each trial I
got a blistered tongue.
One evening, when looking over a
certain outdoor magazine, I read that
a certain fisherman could catch more
fish when using “Edgeworth,” so I
decided I would try “his” tobacco—
for I am no poor fisherman!
The next day I tried to secure Edge
worth. The local country storekeeper
did not have it, so I sent by a friend to
the city for my first Edgeworth. Two
things have happened: I still smoke
Edgeworth, and the local storekeeper
always has a supply.
I catch fish and never get “a bite”
from Edgeworth!
Yours for keeps,

This jobbie Diogenes was a Greek who left his fruit stand for the commend
able purpose of questing for honesty by good old-fashioned lamp-light. And
now, loud and ever elearer, rings the cry from the housetops: “Diogenes_
throw away your lantern . . . here’s an honest cigarette! Have a Camel!”
Camels have but one raison d’ etre—to pack the smoke-spots of the world
uith the "fill-fullment” every experienced smoker seeks. Fill your own
smoke-spot with a cool cloud of Camel smoke, and hear it sing out_
“Eureka!” (from the Greek, “Eureka,” meaning—“Oboy, here ’tis!”).
