THE EMERALD ELECTION
With 700 votes cast at the Emerald
election yesterday there is ample oppor
tunity to study in the results the average
student voter. He is one, who if he does
not know the man whose name appears
on the ballot, is a decided partisan. In
case the man represents an issue with
which he is familiar, then he votes as his
judgment dictates. In the voting of
amendments the average student showed
a great lack of analytical judgment, ex
cept in rare instances, and an over
abundance of prejudice.
It was in the choice of presidential
electors that the most interest was
aroused. Where there was an intimate
knowledge of national issues, party
affiliations were utterly disregarded and
the voter exercised the right of franchise
simply as his judgment dictated. But
the tendency to fall back on party faith
showed a bullish streak where there was
a choice for unknowns.
It was very evident little thought had
been given to many of the amendments
and prejudice had largely ruled. SJtill
it cannot he effectively rebutted that in
some instances this prejudice prognosti
cates the nctual results of state ballot
ing November 7th.
The best spirit of any college in the
northwest—that is a characterization of
the atmosphere and attitude found
on our campus by a professor of Cor
nell University, who in traveling through
the western country, recently visited
That was his impression, his idea of
the situation among the colleges and
Universities in this part of the United
States. He came representing the
thought and analytical tend cies of a
large eastern university and his stand
ards of judgment were gleaned in that
atmosphere, yet he was more pleased
with the University of Oregon than
many of her sister schools.
His assertion is not a new one, hut
It comes from a new point of view, a
slightly different position than that
which generally heralds the superiority
of the “O.egon Spirit.”
Oregon is a comparatively small col
lege situated in a small town. Here,
the University is the thing the town
is secondary. Here we live in close con
tact with the campus, familiar with it
and its people. Few of u* come on
streetcars, none from considerable dis
The quotation is trite, but “it is a
small college and there are those who
love it.” We know oath other, speak
to each other and are not strangers.
After all, it is friendship that makes for
associations and traditions, and it is
these that foster true college spirit.
Such friendship, such cordiality, such
associations are the woof and fiber of
democracy that democracy which,
though threatened, we have and are
proud of. Here the man's the thing.
Dollars count for little.
It is in this demoerary, in this unity
of friendship and closeness of associa
tions, in our compact community and
organization, that our spirit is possible.
Our University is growing past our
power of belief. If we would continue
to hold the position accorded )£ we
must take care that in the process of
growth we do not lose’ our democracy,
our efficiency, our friendship one 'or
another—for of such is the spirit of
Oregon. J. D. G.
