WHEN I'm maturin' tobacco
from old Mother Nature's Book.
Nature says smokin' tobacco don't arrive at
its full, hearty maturity until after two years'
Some folks may say: "Why wait on Nature?
IFc can do it quicker'
I'm strong for Nature's way the VELVET
way two years' mellowing in big, wooden
hogsheads "ageing in the wood'
What do you say?
Well, fill a pipe with VELVET, an
draw in the cool, mild smoke that's so
fragrant an' rich that but what's the
use of trying to describe a taste? Take
my word for VELVET long enough
to try a pipeful, and you won't need

The basketball game between the
V. M. C. A. and Salem high school
teams which was to have been played
tomorrow night tins been mined up one
day .ind will be played in the higa
ween the Oregon Agricultural College
was made on account of the game bet

is scheduled for Tuesday night.
On account of the ast amount of
material that has been develo c,l in
the V. M. C. A. through the commerci il
busketbnll league scries, Physical
I'irector Ciugric h has been able to
select the best team the V. M. C. A.
Iius ever had according to basketball
critics. The Salem High school has
been winning so regularly that vic
tories has become quite the custom un
til McMinnville dropped in the other
evening and nosed out one point .ihead
of the high school. The high school
boys have been putling in some hard
practice since the Mc.Minnylle game
and are determined to stage a come
back that will leave no doubt in the
minds of the followers of the game
that the red and black team is the
championship .iggregntion of the state.
The line-up for the high school will
be: Proctor nnd Ackennan, towards:

For the V. M. C. A. the line-up will
be: Sweeney and Captain Mclutire.

Hiill, guards; MeKimiey, substitute.
If. I, Mathews, coich at Willamette
university, will referee toe game.
por the varsity contest the Willa
mette team has been working overtime
and with all of their strongest men
back in the game it is expected t.int the
contest will be full of thrills from the
start. O. A. C. has the edge by com
parative scores but this is an imperfect
basis from which to estimate the
strength of the two teuns and only
the game in the Willamette gym may be
taken us n satisfactory test of the teal
strength of the tennis.
Hristol, Conn., Pob. -S. Another
effective shot in the hi'; national cam
gaigu for " A .Million Hicycles in 111 Hi"
was fired this week by the joint
"Million Hicycles Committee" of the
( ycle Parts and Accessories Associntion
and the Cycle Jobbers Association, re
sportively. I'our-page circulars were
mailed broadcast to bicycle dealers
throughout the land .innnuncing details
of Co prizes offered to those bicycle
merchants who participate in Hicycle
1'av on Pobnuirv L'il. Prizes will be
given .for tiie best bicycle window dis
plays during that week, also for the
best newspaper advertisements run!
by bicycle dealers .ind for the best!
selling talk composed by mi employe
of a bicycle dealer.
I iii in )'u! of gi:iger, bolh in illustration
and type form, the circular cannot fail
to arouse a tremendous volume of
enthiisnim anion live dealers. The
Wanning for Bicycle Hay .ind the
launching of the enmpaign for "A
Million Hicycles in ISHIi" is now in
lull sway i-.i nil parts of the country.
Healers are receiving the co-operution
rf manufacturers ia the industry along
lines that are sure to work out as prtc
tieal and business-building value. It
can be said that the manufacturers of
bicycles and of bicycle accessories
have absdute faith in the success of
the cainpiign if everybody in the in
dustry pulls together. It seems to bo
the idea of every individual dealer
that he will ind he the one who will

Big Newspaper Publicity.
Beginning Peb. 1st there appeared in
the newspapers id' the country, notably
in the big city dailies, column after
column of reading matter talking about
the attractiveness of the bicycle, its
advantages, and t'.ie luany pleasures it
brings to those who ride. Several of
Die brightest newsp.ipor writers in the
country are now at work in preparing
this material. It seems certain that
the motorcycle's little brother is to be
brought into tiie limelight as it never
has been before. Hive dealers every
where will utilize this publicity ami tne
things it will create ia cycling by ad
vertising in the newspapers and in .1
direct way through the malls and so at
tract attention to their store tit a
time when people are thinking favor
ably of hicycles.
One of the largo dealers in the Mid;
die West is planning to boost ilis Bi
cycle Hay by interesting hoys in his
city who now own a bicycle to bring
to ilis store on JSicycle Hay their hoy
friends who do not ride. Per every
sale he makes to such hoys he gives a
premium to the hoy who brings in the
prospect. This is a clever idea and
ought to work out well for it interests
every present rider to work for the
success of Hicycle Hay among his
Frizes for Best Dealers Ads.
It was voted to establish a fund to
which the members of tiie associations
will contribute for going to every bi
cycle de.ilor and repair man in the
country at once with an announce
ment of plans and an appeal for co
oorntion. By way of interesting the dealer in
the things that will, be recommended to
! hint for Bicycle Hay. it was voted to
! give cash prizes of .fin. oil, if J.'i.on and
two . 111.(111 for the best Advertise
ments of bicycles for men an I boys in
icity or local newspapers. A like list
I in' prizes was voted to dealers for the
j host advertisements advertising bi
cycles. for girls. Similar prizes were
. also voted for the best window dis
! play of bicycles for men and hoys and
' for women and girls.
I The conditions under which these
contests will ho run will bo given the
