vhe most important element in business success
J. and the most difficult is to be sure that you
have alKthe facts before you act.
TO GET them all, from every possible source, is the
first objective in General Motors. The Research
Laboratories contribute some. These are nuggets,
left in the crucible, after hundreds of ideas that
looked good have been burned away. The Proving
Ground contributes others. Dealers contribute. The
public contributes. Every department contributes.
Through the whole organization runs a spirit of
inquiry and of rigid insistence on proof.
OUT of such thinking come the new models
announced from time to time by Chevrolet,
Pontiac, Oldsmobile, Oakland, Buick, LaSalle,
Cadillacall with Fisher Bodies. And by Frigidaire.
Each new model is a tested step forward. Nothing
goes into it as a result of habit or guess' or pride of
Nothing counts but hard-won facts, gathered and
used with an open mind. 9

the gentle zephyr playing a tattoo on
the tail of his coat.

Mademoiselle Accepts
Meal; Customs Differ
The Happiest People
I huve leurned tlmt the happiest
people In the world are those who are
hupplly mated and hare large families.
Although they do uot say, at) a rule,
that they are happy, I often see the
envy in other people's e.vt. : They
work hard, apparently nut knowlnp
how disagreeable are the tusks thrust
on them, and without coring how much
their labors make them tired. When
the evening cornea, they carry homf
the profits of their toll and lay them
on the laps of the women who love
them. Perhaps, somewhere in the
next room, a baby is crying. I might
find it disturbing. They think it the
most beautiful music In the world.

critic, to London Express.'
American customs are by no means
without mystery to Therese Cham
belland, new honor student from
France at the University of Oregon.
Among problems which she cannot
understand is the American woman's
dependent on man, as financial mat
ters go, and yet her independence of
him in other things.
This sad inconsistency has brought
grief to the little brunette French
girl, and very nearly deprived her of
an appetizing . meal. She told her
story to her friends upon her arrival
the other day.
In France, according to Misa Cham
belland, the woman pays her own way
to all dances, feeds and social func
tions. And if she does not, happy is
the man for it is the unspoken I
promise of the girl that she will al
low him the luxury of a kis3 before
the evening is over. Miss Chambel
land came to America with this cus
tom fixed firmly in her mind.
But she encountered a new experi
ence here. On a Pullman somewhere
between New York and Portland, an
obliging gentleman of a few hours
acquaintance asked the French girl
politely: "Mademoiselle, won't you
have dinner with me?"
"I will not." This, or its equival
ent, smote the ears of the astonished
Yankee. But he lost heart not at all,
and finally mademoiselle threw cau
tion to the winds and accompanied
him to dinner. The meal progressed,
as did the evening.
Listeners pricked up their ears at
this approach to a climax, but Misg
Chambelland gave only a disappoint
ing little gesture.
"But you know," she said confi
dentially, " he didn't try to kiss me
at all."
This is one of the new French stu
dent's discoveries about America.

Poison Gets Couger
Eugene For the second time in
Lane county, a cougar has been
poisoned by bait. The skeleton of an
animal 7 feet 4 inches long, found
on Fall creek last week, was brought
into Eugene Friday by C Hight,
government hunter. The cougar's
carcass was found "on the farm of
Emery Callison, who had been miss
ing goats for some time. Bait was
set out by Hight, and numerous bob
cats and coyotes killed before the
cougar took it. Cougars seldom
can be poisoned, Hight said, as they
are too wary to approach the bait.
