Bluffing is quite a necessity in
school life. At least it seems some
students think so. They have the
idea that by bluffing the teachers
they are getting by easily. Who
Is, after all, getting bluffed the
student or the teacher? After
school days are over will it be so
easy to bluff employers and friends?
It will then be noticed by your
self and others that by bluffing in
school you really did not gain any
thing. In fact, you lost. You have
your diploma and your grades on
a card, but they are useless if you
do not have the knowledge in your
head. No one admires a person
who is just a big "bluff," so it is
much better to work and really
earn your diplomas rather than to
graduate on bluffs.
And another thing the Junior
Play is a big sensation! That's no

The difference between an Abstract of Title to real
estate and a Title Insurance Policy may be clearly
understood by the following comparison :
An Abstract of Title
is a mere RECORD of title, ex
tended or compiled as copy from
original records Strictly a cler
ical document issued under pri
vate responsibility without any
guarantee of good title. At the
very best you can only get an at
torney's OPINION that the title
concerned in the abstract is good.
A Title Insurance Policy
Is a BOND OF INDEMNITY,
founded upon record, INSUR
ING "Good and Marketable" title
to your real estate, safeguarded
by the State of Oregon guaran
tee fund There is no loophole;
the insurance is absolute and
runs on forever on payment of
one premium ONLY.
The average premium is 50 less than the cost of
an average abstract.

Feeding Iodine to Mares
Draws Interest to OSC
Widespread interest In the re
search in feeding iodine to brood
mares at Oregon State college has
resulted in a request to staff mem
bers concerned to present a scien
tific paper covering the subject.
Such a paper by B. W. Rodenwold
and Dr. B. T. Simms, of the state
college, was presented before the
American Society of Animal Pro
duction at its annual meeting in
Chicago the first week in Decem
ber. The Oregon State college workers
began experimenting with iodine
feeding in 1922, after severe losses
through the death of foals had been
experiencd. Accurate records main
tained since that time strongly In
dicate that the feeding of 15 grains
of potassium iodide per week to
brood mares during the last half
of the gestation period will elimin
ate a common goitrous condition
and bring foals that are stronger,
more vigorous and healthy. Five
grains of potassium iodide per week
was found sufficient to prevent goi
ter in calves.
The material was fed by mixing
a stock solution go that one ounce
of the liquid poured on the grain
once a week would give the re
quired dosage. The treatment la
recommended only for regions
where a deficiency of Iodine in the
regular feed stuffs results in goi
trous condition of foals and other
