“Comes the revolution” could be
an Oregana rallying-cry this year,
according to previews of the book
in its incomplete stages. For one
thing, it’s bigger—10 inches by 13,
instead of last year’s 9 and 12.
Also, every picture in the book is a
fresh one, which has never before
appeared in an Oregana.
Probably the most revolutionary
change is the dividing of the book
into schools, with all senior pic
tures and honoraries being includ
ed with their respective schools.
Each school will have a different
color paper for its pages, with
three different kinds of type being
used. And the schools are por
trayed in some cases with graduat
ing seniors demonstrating the
work of the school.
More Color Pictures
A step-up in the number of color
pictures is announced, eight color
pictures being planned.
Three out of every four campus
or ganizations appear in this year s
book, a result of special activity
on the part of Oregana Busmess
Manager Dick Williams. Forty-five
living organizations and 37 honor
aries will appear.

Janet Smith Speaks
At Medford High
Practical advice cn a problem of
utmost importance to youth today,
that of obtaining' employment, was
given to Medford high school stu
dents and students from other
schools in that vicinity Friday,
when Miss Janet Smith, employ
ment secretary of the University
of Oregon, spoke at the Medford
senior high school.
Miss Smith’s topic was “Person
ality in Obtaining a Positon.’’ She!
has given this talk at other places
in the state and it has been en
thusiastically received and warmly
praised by educators and others.
Miss Smith, who has conducted
the employment bureau of the Uni
versity since 1923, is regarded' as
an expert in her field. Under her
direction the university employ
ment service has been developed
until hundreds of students find
work enough to keep them in
school each year. A service for
graduates has also resulted in
placement in excellent positions
for many of them.

west district organizer for the American Youth Hostels, Inc.
A network of stopping places of hikers and bicycle riders to secure
rooms and meals for only a few cents a day while seeing the nation is
the aim of the group. The proposal to make Eugene one of the main
stopping places nas Deen advanced
by interested parties.
Information on the travel sys
tem for cyclists and hikers, now in
operation in a score of European
countries and most of the eastern
portion of the United States, was
furnished by Miss Reasoner.
Local Sponsors Named
The youth hostels, at which
travelers may obtain a lodging for
25 cents per person, will be set up
first at convenient intervals for bi
cyclists, and later close enough for
hikers, Dean Onthank stated. The
trails will follow country roads,
with side branches into the moun
taijis and to the coast.
Portland sponsors for the hostel
organization are Dexter Keezer,
president of Heed college; G. H.
Oberteuffer, A. R. Watzek, and
The Eugene group is headed by
Dean Onthank, and includes Percy
M. Morse, Dr. J. E. Richmond, Pro
fessor F. P. Sipe, Dr. Harry Nor
ton, George H. Godfrey, and Rus
sell Jones. The group will form
subcommittees to assist in locat
ing the hostels, equipping them,
and working out routes.
East and west side routes south
bound from Portland will be or
ganized first to connect with hos
tels already established in Wash
ington. Miss Reasoner stated.

"With one foot on the land,
and one in industry,
America is safe.”
^ —HENRY FORD
Factory in a Meadow
A dozen small Ford plants dot the
fields and meadows within fifty
miles of Dearborn. We call them the
“village industries.” Their windows
are bright in the sun, and their
wheels turn to the harnessed energy
of once lazy streams.
Many of their workers are farm
ers who love fine machinery. After
harvest and before grecn-up, these
farmer-workmen park their cars in
neat rows beside the plants. Inside,
with the newest, most modern ma
chines, they build Ford parts.
With the money earned, they buy
that fertile forty just east of the pas
ture lot — families go to school —
houses grow wings—barns are fdled
with provender and sheds with back
These Ford families have one
foot on the land and one in industry.
They raise food for themselves and
feel secure. They know that if slack
times come, farm and garden will
still provide employment.
Life is pleasant in the villages.
Working conditions are almost ideal.
Men do better work and are proud
of their contribution to Ford quality.
It shows up in the fine performance
and all-around dependability of the
1939 Ford cars.
