The advertising classes of W. F.

and business administration, are
conducting an interesting survey
to obtain facts as to the buying
capacities and habits of college
This survey is being conducted
for the Emerald, one of the nine
Pacific coast newspapers included
in the major college publications.
The members of the advanced ad
vertising class, advertising prob
lems. are acting as supervisors of
the investigators who are in the
general advertising class.
They are now circulating 600
questionnaires on the campus, dis
tributing them carefully among
the different classes, freshman,
sophomore, graduate, etc., also
among men and women, and
among fraternity and non-fratern
ity and non-fraternity students.
Eventually all these data will be
compiled with those of the other
eight colleges, and the resulting
information will be sold to nation
al advertisers regarding the use of

Oregon Editors Accept Invitation
i Of Corvallis Business Men
For 1933 Convention
Merle Chessman, editor and pub
| lisher of the Astorian-Budget, was
elected president, and George
Turnbull, professor of journalism,
secretary, as the last official acts
of the Oregon Press conference
which closed here Saturday after
noon. Chessman succeeds Thomas
Nelson of the Junction City Times.
The other official business of
the closing luncheon was the in
duction into Alpha Delta Sigma,
professional fraternity in advertis
ing, of Lucien Arant of the Baker
Democrat-Herald, and George Mc
Murphy of the Chet Crank Adver
tising agency of Portland.
Mr. Chessman has been editor
of the Astoria paper since 1919.
Prior to that he had been with
the Pendleton East Oregonian.
He was graduated from the Uni
versity in 1909.
Mr. Turnbull has been secretary
of the conference since 1920. The
first year of the organization,
1919, Elbert Bede of the Cottage
Grove Sentinel, was secretary
treasurer. At the next meeting,
as it was voted to do away with
dues and funds, the office was
changed and Mr. Turnbull was
; elected the first secretary. He has
held that office continuously since.
The editors, in their morning
session, voted to hold the 1933
convention of Oregon State Edi
torial association in Corvallis. The
invitation to do so was extended
by the chamber of commerce of

the weekly’s standpoint, was dis

Considerable comment was
aroused by Mr. Chessman’s talk
i on the manner in which the daily
newspaper has been meeting the
problems of the present business
conditions. The same topic was
covered from the weekly angle in
a preceding talk by H. L. St. Clair
of the Gresham Outlook.
An increase in the sale of adver
tising was reported by Alice Vitus
of the Klamath Falls News and
Herald, in her accounts of experi
ences as an advertising sales
woman in the southern Oregon
city. She explained several de
vices that have aided her greatly
in getting new accounts.

Albany College Not Interested
In Proposed Plan of Merger
Not only the state-supported
higher institutions have been pre
sented with a proposal to merge,
but also the independent colleges
of Oregon have also received the
same suggestion. Little Albany
college, according to statements
recently given out by F. R.
Schanck, president of the board of
trustees, and F. E. Callister, chair
man of the executive committee
of that body, is interested in no
plan for merging that school with
On the contrary, a “ten year
plan" for the development of phy
sical properties, enlarging the stu
dent body and strengthening en
dowment is now being initiated at
Albany, and will be pressed for
fulfillment, it is reported.
There has been a widely dis
cussed proposal for uniting tkc
several independent institutions of\
the state on one central campus.
It is said that the idea has ema
nated from Dr. Robert L. Kelly,
permanent secretary of the Assc-!
riation of American colleges. Dr.
John Ft Dobbs, president of Pacific
university, advocated the plan in
several addresses, suggesting Port
land as the proper place to locate
such an enlarged institution re
sulting from the combination.
Albany college, it is understood, j

cause it does not like to lose its

In reply to a rather persotuil

Concerning his schooling and
background, Stuurman answered:
“In my home my family speaks
three languages, Dutch, Frisian
(which is similar to Anglo-Saxon),
and English. This gave me a taste
for linguistic idiom. Since that
time I have studied French, Ger

and we’d like
to talk with you
All races of people since the beginning
of time, so far as we have been able
to read, have had some kind of a pipe
and have smoked something—whether
they called it tobacco or what not.
A ND since smoking a pipe is so different
-Em- from smoking a cigar or cigarette,
we made a most painstaking, scientific
study in an effort to make, if we could,
a tobacco which was suited to pipes.
We found out, first, that there was a
kind of tobacco that grew in the Blue
Grass section of Kentucky called White
Burley, and that there was a certain kind
of this tobacco which was between the
tobacco used for cigarettes and the to«
bacco used for chewing tobacco. It is
this tobacco which is best for pipes.
We found out that Mr. J. N. Wellman,
many years ago, made a pipe tobacco
which was very popular. But it was
never advertised and after he passed
away nothing more was heard about it.
We acquired this Wellman Method and
that i» wrliat we use in making Granger.

The Granger pouch

Next was the cut. We knew that fine
tobacco burnt hot because it burnt so
fast. You could hardly hold your pipe in
your hand, it got so hot at times. So
remembering how folks used to "whittle ’
their tobacco we cut GRAINGER just like
"whittle” tobacco—"Rough Cut.” It
smokes cooler, lasts longer and never
gums the pipe.
So far, so good. Now we wanted to
sell ibis tobacco for 10c. Good tobacco
— right process — cut right. So we put
Granger in a sensible soft foil pouch
instead of an expensive package, knowing
that a man can’t smoke the package.
GRAINGER has not been on sale very
long, hut it has become a popular smoke.
And vve have yet to know of a man who
started to smoke it, who didn’t keep on.
Folks seem to like it.
