The chorus is com pleting its first tonr of eastern and mid-western, cities, appearing In concerts which have revealed St. Olafa as a center, heretofore un known, of remarkable choral sing to. ' The exceptional success the choir of this little school in Minnesota has enjoyed is readily appreciated when one has heard their program rendered with such remarkable spirit and harmony. Under the di rection of Prof. i Melius- Chris- tiansen, who during his many years' leadership has seemingly developed his control to very nearly absolute, the choir sang with such volume of tone and mastery of voice as Is not anticipated from an amateur organ ization.

SENIOR CLASS PLAY IS FINANCIAL WIN The senior class play, "A Pair of Sixes," given last Thursday and Friday evening in the Illinois the atre, was as great a success finan cially as it was as a play. There was $1,110 taken in on the two per formances. Of this amount nearly $600 will be clear profit. This is the largest amount that has ever been made on a senior class play.

"The chief motives which led ns to enter the war will be defeated unless that covenant is ratified and acted upon with vigor. We cannot in honor whittle it down or weaken it as the Republican' leaders of the senate have proposed to do. "If we are to exercise the kind of leadership to which the founders of the republic looked forward and which they depended upon their successors to establish, we must do this thing with courage and unal terable determination. "They expected the United States to be always the leader in the de-1 iense or iiDeriy ana uruereu (throughout the world, and we are unwortny to can ourselves me-.r successors unless we fulfill the great purpose they entertained and proclaimed. "The true Americanism, the only true Americanism, is that which puts America at the front of free nations and redeems the great promises which we made the world when we entered the war, which was fought not for the advantage of any single nation or group of na tions, but for the salvation of all. "It is in this way we shall re deem the, sacred blood that was peat and make America the force she should be in the councils of mankind. She cannot afford to sink into the place that nations have usually occupied and become mere ly one of those who scramble and look about for selfish advantage. - "The Democratic party has now' a great opportunity to which it must measure np.

Senator Lodge, Republican lead er in the senate, issued a brief statement after having heard Pres ident Wilson's message to the Ore gon Democrats. "I cannot undertake to discuss it in detail," he said, "but, politically speaking, I am very glad he has taken the position he has.

Read extracts from a letter written by one of the greatest tire men in the United States, whose trade name on a tire Is like the mark of the United States on a bank note: "Firms of known quality con struction commence their in spection with the first item of raw material and mixing com pounds. For instance, we go to great expense in machinery and talent to inspect every INCH of fabric delivered to us by the makers BEFORE it goes into the lire. "Every inch of fabric deliv ered to us not measuring up to our specifications goes back to the fabric makers, they in turn resell this faulty weaving, etc., which we have declined, to the irresponsible makers, who use it in tire supposed to be as good as the best made. "That is one item. "We maintain GUM inspection on every delivery from the brok ers. We compel a standard up to the grades listed and which we purchase. Any attempt to mix or Introduce different grades is caught and returned. As a . result the brokers SEE that we are not taken advantage of. as they know it will come back to them. The moral effect has been good on our deliveries, but we do not relax the inspection at our cost, as we know to relax would re sult in the return of the old practice. Where our gum ex ports used to find carload lots to return, they now rarely lind anything, as purchases are known to be inspected ere the gum goes into our cellars. All this residue is sold elsewhere and USED. So on down the line with the raw materials. When we start mixing inspectors stand over the batches to see that the workmen use only the right pro portions of each ingredient, etc., etc. workmanship the human equa tion. This is in the placing of ' the plies, the overcuring by neg lect of time errors, and it is then the inspection that i3 described comes into play. "Such tires are thrown out, and are often not faulty enough to invite the scrap heap treat ment, as they will deliver mile age, but not as much as the properly built ones. "Our company does not sell them to ANY DEALER. "The favorite practice of the gyp is to mysteriously say, 'This second wa3 made by a big firm. I cannot say which one, and I only have a few;, etc., when as fact the tire never saw a repu table factory, but is one regular ly made for them by some sntail company engaged la making them solely. "Another practice is to adver tise a list of prominent makes and then be 'just out' when called on to deliver one aud urge a substitution. "The general practice is to en gage with a maker of bad goods, made of cheap and shoddy ma terials, for a special design tire, to put on it a list price Just the same as a reputable make, then as a SPECIAL thing in trading cut the list to some VERY low figure to FOOL the buyer into thinking he is getting a bargain. That, is the PADDED LIST PRICE designed to establish parity on values and meant to be cut in sales. "Our final faults come in the "I might run on to length on this subject, but it suffices to say thai there is a distinct tine of bunco-steering more common to the sale of tires than any oLhcr commodity." Ton learn from this: First, how good tires are niado, and second, how tka sellers of dis honest tire operate. You know there must necessarily be a gigantic supply of bad tires, and vou are warned airainst them. For good tire makers, great concerns that are household words in the country, can afford anything except DETER 10 RAT I O.N IN THEIR PRODUCT. They examine all materials, submitting them to the micro scopic, careful test described above. All materials not of the very lirvt quality are. rejected. And out of Unit rejecled materiaC poor rubber, inferior fibre, (he makers and sellers of "gyp" tires manufacture the inferior toods vthicli they offer to the public and with which they discourage the automobile and tire industry. Investigate the good tires, the great, makes; make venr choice among them. Pick out the one that you think best. Live it a fair trial aod, once satis tied, stick to it. Or if you think jou can do better, try some oilier one of the great brands of tires. But leave the "gyp" tire alone, as yon would leave alone the gypsy horse or the brass or gold-plated watch offered to yon by au itinerant peddler with no shop, no name, no reputation, nothing to lose. The worst of the fraudulent "gyp" tire is this: It is bought nearly always by the man who can least afford the cost of being cheated. The rich man has had experience in buying. He has learned that well-established firms, universally known trade names, are cheapest lie cause best. But the little man who runs his own car. the man tn whom (be automobile, while it is a necessity, seems to he at first a financial bur den, be is the man that most often buys tile worthless the, and has Itis outing spoiled by blow-outs and punctures, which the "gyp" dpalp later tells him conies from sharp stones, etc- but which come really from SHARP PRACTICE. The less money you have, the less you can afford to deal with gypy either in tires, horses, watches or any other line of purchase. We Do Not Handle Gypsy Tires.
