From the unusual amount of inter-
est manifested this year in the event,
it is expected that the number of en-
trants will be larger than in any pre-

the Tryads who have been spending
a night weekly studying advertising
problems.

partment and engineering school an
opportunity to enter the employ of the
above concern and to explain the broad
fields of work opening up in this line
of endeavor.

able of taking places on farms for the

The house, dividing itself into a Re-
publican and a Democratic party, will
debate the question. The Republicans
undertake to uphold the plan.

duction.
