conditions around Bloemfontien are
unusually good. Only ten percent of

Work on a new drill hall for the R.

of the present office building formerly'
occupied by the highway engineering
department and the evaporator labor-

for all members of the unit during the
winter months and at such timhes as
the weather is not suitable for outdoor

be established in the building for in-

The space will be suffilently large, it
is thought, for an entire company to

Students of economics, especially ad-
vanced students in business adminis-
tration, have been invited to take part
in the summer excursion and tour of in-
dustry that will be conducted by the
Harvard School of Business Adminis-
tration. Th trip will cost approxi-

ern section of the United tSates, trav-
eling in a chartered car.f
The tentative itinerary foir the trip
is to visit a few of the larger indus-
tries of New England first, then pro-
ceed to Pennsylvania, thence to West
Virginia, Indiana, Illinois, and Minne-
sota, returning by way of Chicago and
Detroit. Further information about
the trip may be seruced from Prof. Ed-j

A New Banded Black 'en
e4 Special 'en for Students
Has large ring that links it to your note-book
or a pocket-clip-Free
THE idea of a super-smooth medium
priced pen with good ink-capacity
and a large ring-end to link to the ring of
your note-book originated with students
themselves. We acknowledge our indebt-
edness, and we know their idea is a winner
for wherever this new Parker 0. Q. has
been introduced it has stepped right off in
the lead of the medium-priced class.
Moreover, this Parker D.Q. is produced
by the makers of the Parker Duofold-
everywhere acknowledged as the fountain
pen classic. Not only in craftsmanship, but
in all mechanical features save the color
and point, it is like the Parker Duofold.Yet
even the point of this $3 Parker D.Q. is 14k
gold, tipped with NATIVE Iridium and
polished to the super-smoothness of a
costly jewel bearing. The cap is reinforced
by a strong metal girdle - the only pen
we know of, of equal size, at less than $5
with a banded cap.
Try this new Parker D. Q. at any near-by pen
counter. It is your idea of a pen - made to the
students' own specifications.
