"Let’s have a clean election.” To this
annual crusade the Emerald would like
to add its endorsement and make a few
suggestions as to how it may best be
Ill the first place personalities should
he left out of an election. It makes no
difference how much a candidate has
done for his University. Such trillcs
may Ik- all right in a small body where
tlie members are intimately associated
and acquainted, but the A. S. U. O. is
past that stage, and it is time we were
getting away from its pernicious effects.
We would advise therefore that every
student make a special effort to find out
just what frat, club or faction a candi
date belongs to and vote accordingly.
When possible everyone should vote for
the candidate in his own house. If none
is available, then the house most closely
associated in politics should be chosen.
I he essential thing we are getting at
is that personal merit should be dis
Hardly second in importance is the
element of personal friendship. How
ungrateful it is to turn down a friend
just because his opponent happens to
have more ability. Such a man was
llrutus when he sacrificed his benefac
tor for the common good.
As a better illustration, take the ex
ample of an editor a few years ago.
I his editor had a very close friend, be
longing to the same fraternity, a popu
lar man. Hut there was another candi
date who had more ability, and the un
grateful editor turned down his friend
to support tin- second candidate. We
don't think that this will ever happen
again, but lest it might we mention the
< ircumstances. think of it. Just for
tin good of the publication and partly,
tun. of course, for the- University, this
man sacrificed his friend.
\ 11 element of growing importance to
the candidate himself is the matter of
trading votes. the successful office
seeker cannot ignore it. lie should have
a definite understanding with the cat
ions houses as to just how they stand.
If lie can get their vote by supporting
and calling upon bis friends and fra
ternity brothers to support certain can
didates he is unwise at least not to
do so. Many a candidate has won Ins
election by being thoroughly up to date
in these matters of practical politics.
\nd the student who is not running
also has a chance to win friends and
supporters lor other years when he may !
be in the race himself, lie should at
tempt to support only those who will
agree to support him when he runs. It's
a good idea, too, to tell both candidates
that he will support them. 1 hey won't
know the difference.
Next week the University of Wash
ington Daily will be edited by the jun
iors and seniors of the Department of
Journalism. It is their intention to put
out an ideal paper.
LITTLE WORDS BOB UP
AGAIN IN INTERSTATE
Washington and Montana Have
Trouble With Orations for
Orators of the Northwest arc finding
out that little words amount to some
thing this year.
It will he remembered that Harold
Rounds, who represented Oregon in the
intercollegiate contest, exceeded the
word limit by failing to count small
words. Washington’s representative in
the interstate oratorical contest has run
over the two thousand word limit in the
same way by failing to count eighty-one
In this case the mistake will cause
no serious trouble, for as soon an Man

them and allowed them to revise the pa
A change has been made in Montana’s
representative. Instead of A. Leech,
who was first chosen, Bullerdick, who
took second place, will represent Mon

legislation in behalf of canals and water
ways, is to make Montreal, instead of
New York, the greatest grain center in
America. lie told how the railroads,
through skillfully arranged schedules,
