Earl C. Flegel
Willamette's most popular athlete who
will play the role or Kobin Hood in
the Junior Class play "Sherwood."
Probably no person is better fitted
than Earl Flegel to interpret the char
acter of Kobin Hood in the drama
"Sherwood" to be ' 'presented at the
Grand May 5. From the first day of
his arrival on the campus of Willam
ette University Mr. Flegel has took in
active part in student activities and
has proven himself a worthy hero in
many an athletic contest, in- the dis
guise of a Kobin Hood his sincere per
sonality, and ability to master diffi
cult situations is a faculty cap.ible of
winning nothing but praise from the
most critical observer.
In the green garb of a forester, the
adventures of Robin Hood, as por
trayed bry the lines of Alfred Noyes'
in the drama "Sherwood," are sure to
be of supremo interest to anyone.
His character is revealed by the
words "which is the disguise day Af
ter (lay, we put our social armor on,
a different mask for every occasion."
The respect of the common people m l
the fear manifested by the favored
ew towards him completely identifies
his name with the spirit of justice.
The development of the romantic
love that exists between he and Ladv
Marian is also a paramount feature of
the drama, for here the tics of lovo is
made all the more strong by misfor
tune that befall the lovers. Although
all of Robin's goods are ronfiseatcd,
and Marian's father Fitzwalter has
aroused the displeasure of Prince John

Nature varies the flavor she puts into
the different grades of tobacco leaf
and the best of all is the flavor of
choice red Burley that pleases you so
mightily when you chew Spear Head.
The delicious fruity flavor of a chew
of Spear Head is a revelation to the
man who has never chewed or who has
been chewing near-good tobacco.
For chewing is the one way to get
all the wholesome, healthful, appetizing
flavor of the tobacco leaf providing
you chew a fiigh-grade plug like Spear
No other tobacco can compare with
Spcnr Head in the wholesome satisfac
tion it gives.
You get more savory sweetness in a
cliew of Spear Head than in a whole
plug of ordinary tobacco.
And you get it in its purest form
for Spear Head is made amid the most,
wholesome surroundings, in a great,
new factory that's kept absolutely
clean and sanitary.
Try this rich, mellow, satisfying, pure
chew. Such a chew cannot be obtained
in any other tobacco than Spear Head.
