Concerning the candidates who will
be named at tomorrow morning’s Stu
dent Body nominations, the Emerald
knows only what it has been able to
discover and publish in its news col
umns. During the campaign our po
sition will, of course, be neutral. Any
mebmer of thee staff who may cherish
political ambitions of his own or
nourish those of someone else does
But the Emerald la interested in see
ing men and women nominated who
are deserving of the positions they
seek and capable of doing the Student
Here is an occasion for the applica
tion of Oregon spirit which may not
have occurred to all of us. In our
opinion, any student who runs for an
office, knowing in his heart that he
is unworthy, is guilty of treachery
to his college a hundred times greater
than that of a quitter on a team or
in the rooters’ bleachers. The same
thing is true of the group of students
which backs the unworthy candidate—
and it matters not whether the group
lives in a fraternity house or out
May the day come when Oregon
spirit will mean the sacrificing of
personal interests to the good of the
Student Body, and when the question
a student seeking an honor from his!
fellow-students will ask himself will
be, “Do I deserve it?” and not “Can
I get it?” And it is the duty of all
of us to speed that day by disregard
ing all prejudice in casting our votes
and considering only the qualifications
of the candidates.
Of course, the world will not be
greutly disturbed in its orbit, no mat.
ter who may win the coming elections.
College politics is more or less a
travesty, and college honors are vac
uous. But the training we receive
in our own little teapot tempest will
abide with us, and the code of polit
ical ethics we learn now will guide us
in our future citizenship.
The Emerald has been glad to ob
serve in recent elections here a grow-,
ing and wholesome sentiment in fa
vor of giving the office to the best j
man. We hear but seldom of the fra- j
ternity bickerings and bartering!* \
which formerly added an unsavory
zest to the campaigns. Seldom do we
hear the intelligence of individual stu-1
dents insulted by' a statement that |
“this or that house will go solidly”
for or against some candidate. Less
frequently now do the men vote ac
cording to their personal likes and
dislikes, and the women according to
the dress, beauty and pigging pro
clivities of the candidates.
From the list of aspirants who have
already proclaimed themselvoes, the
more important offices in the Stu
dent Body have likely suitors this
year. It is for us, the proletariat, to
use our unbiased judgment and make
our choices on the basis of merit

It is thought at Stanford that the
action of the University of Califor
nia in breaking off athletic relations
with their school conies as the initial
step towards reversion to the old game
of American football, rather than be
cause of any grievance over the
Freshman eligibility rule.
The football men at Washington
are out for a little sprmg practice.
Dobie’s biggest worry seems to be
the necessity of filling in Charley

of that veteran’s caliber.
