THE UNIVERSITY VOTE
N vi r has a more comprehensive
straw vote been undertaken than that
to be held tomorrow by the Emerald.
Regular ballot forms will present
eve! y man and measure to be voted
upon by the people of Oregon next
week. Clerks and judges furnished
by the Department of Journalism will
man the polls and count the vote,
following in every essential detail the
election laws of Oregon.
Several very interesting results
may be expected from this ballot.
The University has no monopoly of
the intelligence and good sense of the
state, but it is fair to assume that it
is at least up to the average of sill
the voters of the state, and will fore
east within reasonable limits the way
the vote of the state will go.
The time it takes to count the bal
lots cast at each class “precinct” will
be accurately determined. From this
th time it will take for the returns
to come in from any precinct in the
regular election can be estimated,
a matter of considerable importance
to every newspaper reporting the
el.ction results the night of Novem
Every student and member of the
Faculty should take advantage of this
exceptional opportunity to determine
the Univeisity feeling on important
issues. The only way to do this, is to
turn out and register as careful, in
telligent and complete a ballot as if
this were an actual election.
Nothing can make a better impres
sion on the state than a demonstra
tion that everyone at the University
is taking an active interest in these
HorqruTS and brickbats.
Under this borrowed caption the
Kmc raid prints in this issue commun
ications received recently from two
of its readers. Others will follow
from time to time.
It is the hope of the Emerald that
letters of this sort will be many.
There is nothing which indicates to the
editors more accurately in what they
are right. and where they have made
mistakes than these letters from read

The yelling at Saturday's game
calling for Cornell was mighty cheap
sportsmanship. No one can possibly
have the interest of the team more
at heart than the coach and the cap
tain, to whom loop custom has given
the responsibility of the selection of
its members. Spectators may have
their opinions as to how the team is
being run, but it is unlikely that town
sports, whose knowledge of football
is gleaned from the sporting page,
and Freshmen who are barely able
to distinguish a goal-post from a for
ward pass, know more of the actual
situation on the field than these
picked and experienced men.
And anyway, loyal supporters of
the team don’t crab about the play
ers. They yell encouragement.
The amendment to the Student
Body constitution, making the treas
urer of the Student Body a member
of the Athletic Council, deserves to
pass. It will simplify the work of the
treasurer and save the Student Body
money. Reason enough for its ratifi

FIRE BURNS IIP SIS
Seventy-five dollars was spent by
the Freshman class in building the
bonfire that went up in smoke last
evening, (lien Wheeler, head of the
fire committee said that the hire of
the teams and of the special train
were the principal items of the cost.
This amount lacked twenty-five dol
lars of the cost of the ’14 blaze, but it
slightly exceeded the expense at
tached to the effort of last year’s
class. The fire works were furnished
free by a local sporting goods house.

To the Editor:
As an alumnus of the University,
and one of the Emerald’s subscribers,
1 wish to enter a protest against the
publication of the nightmare which
appears on the back page of the Em
erald for October 22. Such foolish
effusions bode serious ill to the Uni
versity, when hard working, compe
tent students are ridiculed as “boners”
and “high brows.” Athletic sports
must not stand in the way of scholar
ship, whether defeats come or not.
Suppose the football men had done
even average work, no posting would
have occurred. The policy of the stu
dent body should be loyal support of
the ruling of the faculty, and if any
others there be on the campus, who
are in the habit of indulging in such
nightmares, for their sake and that of
the University, let them becorae the
objects of good natured pity.
Very truly yours,
JESSE H. BOND.
What About It, Y. M.?
To the Editor:
In the Oregon Emerald of October
17. on the first page, appears an ar
ticle, giving a student church census
taken by the Y. M. C. A. The Epis
copal Church is classed as non-evan
gelical. Is it possible that the Young
Men’s Christian Association at Eu
gene knows so little of the church
history in America, as to make such
a classification ?
Very sincerely yours,
J. A. CHURCHILL.

Rhodes Scholar is Not Selected on
Account of Lost Quiz
The questions for the Rhodes ex
amination, which was to have been
held at Albany College, October 15
and lt>, did not arrive. Secretary A.
M. Parkins, American representative
of the Rhodes Trust, was notified im
mediately, but he could say nothing
further than that the questions had
been turned over to the Adams Ex
press Company at Washington, D. C.,
on September 18.
To avoid the irregularity of giving
these examinations later than the
original date, which is uniform
throughout the whole world, Secretary
Parkins has recommended to the
authorities in England, that the
scholar from Oregon be chosen from
the two registered candidates, George
Stewart, Jr., of McMinnville College,
and Luton Ackerson, of the Univer
sity of Oregon, in the usual manner,
upon the assumption that the ap
pointee shall pass responsions, or the
qualifying entrance examinations, at
Oxford next October. If this recom
mendation is accepted, the Committee
of Selection, composed of the presi
dents of Willamette University, Mc
Minnville College, Pacific University,
Albany College, and the University of
Oregon, will meet within a month to
decide upon the state’s representa
