Interview with Mr. Bloom, Jimmy
The New Semester
Now that the exams are over and
we can once more breathe freely,
everyone is beginning to settle
down to another semester of hard
work. Most of the students have
acquired a few grey hairs as a re
sult of the minimum essentials, but
outside of that they seem as cheer
ful as ever. There seem to be
some changes in programs but not
as many as were expected. Every
one is very well satisfied with his
own program although a few se
niors are changing theirs because
they are compelled to in order to
graduate. And while we are on the
subject of the new semester, it
would be well for all of the stu
dents to remember how they so
earnestly wished they had Btudled
harder when it came to exams.
Down through the ages in school
work you will find students cram
ming" the night before exams. This
Is all fine as far as the exams are
concerned, but when you cram you
get all the material into your brain
n the least amount of time that
you possibly can. When you ac
quire knowledge this fast you lose
it just as fast. This applies to bus-
ness life as well as school life. .
If pupils would realize while they
are still in school that last minute
'cramming" does more harm than
good, then when they went out Into
the business world they would be
more apt to be a success than those
who overtax their brains one day
and then loaf for a month.

Superintendent Edward F. Bloom
recently journeyed to Chicago to
represent the state of Oregon at
the annual conference of the High
School Athletic Federation, which
was held January 10 and 11. Ore
gon was the only state of the far
west represented. Other western
states represented were Utah, Col
orado, North Dakota and South
Dakota. Mmbership in this feder
ation has increased from three to
fourteen in the last four years.
States outside the federation fol
low the national collegiate rules.
Mr. Bloom was a member of the
committee on football rules. Vari
ous changes were enacted, the most
radical being one pertaining to a
substitute's communicating with
the other members of the team on
entering the game. The new rule
provides that a substitute may
communicate with the others imme
diately after reporting to the ref
eree. Formerly the substitute was
forbidden to talk, under pain of
penalty, until at least one play had
been completed. Other changes of
minor consequence were also en
acted. Problems pertaining to injury of
players were also discussed. The
growing number of neck injuries,
caused by high tackling, as a result

BEFORE you take any prepara

for the relief of headaches; or the
pains of rheumatism, neuritis or
neuralgia, ask your doctor what he
thinks about it in comparison
with Genuine Bayer Aspirin.
We ay this because, before the
discovery of Bayer Aspirin, most
so-called "pain" remedies were ad
vised against by physicians as being
bad tor the stomach; or, often, for
the heart. And the discovery of
Bayer Aspirin largely changed
Countless thousands of people
who have taken Bayer Aspirin year
in and out without ill effect, have
proved that the medical findings
about its safety were correct.
Remember this'. Genuine Bayer
Aspirin is rated among the fastest

of headaches end all common pains

to take regularly.
You can get real Bayer Aspirin at
any drug store simply by never
asking for it by the name "aspirin"
alone, but always saying BAYER
ASPIRIN when you buy.
