L. E. Uarson Declares 'Competition Is Means of
Uncovering: Hidden Talent; Mew Feature
May Be Discovered by Student
CHARACTERIZING the Emerald'KORE radio contest as a com
plete innovation in radio entertainment, L. E. Larsen, field rep
resentative for the Majestic distributing company, who was in Eugene
Saturday, expressed keen interest and approval in the idea. The
contest enters its second week tonight with programs presented by
Gamma Phi Beta, and Tri-Delt.
“You members of the Emerald staff,” said Mr. Larsen, “are cer
tainly entitled to congratulations on your novel and original idea in
sponsoring the radio program contest. To my knowledge nothing
exactly like it has ever been attempted before.”
Mr. Larsen was in Eugene for
the purpose of arranging for the
local distribution of the new
“Model 93” Majestic cabinet ra
dios, one of which has been do
nated by the radio department of
McMorran and Washburne as the
grand prize for the contest.
Larsen was enthusiastic over
the contest as a means of reveal

There are still hundreds of un
tried and unthought-of ideas that
must yet have their debut on the
air. Who knows but that some
clever Oregon young man or wom

tory as the originator of an inter
nationally popular program idea ?
School Contest Sponsored
“Grigsby Grunow company,
manufacturers of Majestic radio,
will release next month over the
Columbia Broadcasting system the
first of their programs sponsored
for schools only. These shall be
called the American School of the
Air. Historical drama, educa
tional subjects, etc., will be inter
estingly offered, bringing to the
schools a type of class work or
lecture such as we have never
before even dreamed of.
“Referring again to your pro
grams, I regret that it has not
been possible for me to hear them.
However, I shall look forward to
listening in on them in the fu
for themselves. “Charming Sin
ners” is one of them.

Rex is very enlightening to any
one needing a few hints on mas
culine eccentricities. We coughed
