WANTED-BRIGHT YOÜNG MEN FKOM " outside Chicago to act as guides to touriste at World'.s Fair; good salary. For full particulars address immediately V 133. It seems that some U. of M. students, seeing the advertisement, answered it and were informed that a deposit of two dollars was necessary for guide books, which was sent as required. Receiving no answer, the anxious student wrote the following to the Chicago ínter Ocean: Ann Akbor, Mich., April 10.- To the Editor.- I am a senior in tlie University of Michigan, and answered an advertisement in a Chicago paper. I received a reply, and wish to know vhetlier the World's Fair Guide Bureau is reliable and trustworthy. A Keadeh. Strict search on the part of the ínter Ocean failed to find the V. C. Oakes, who was the would-be employer. The moral to be drawn from the above is that students should not fall into the traps laid for them by unprincipled scoundrels, who aré flocking to the World 's Fair city to prey on the unsuspecting public.
