THE BALLOT AND JUSTICE
If over justice should porvail, it
should find expression nt the ballot,

courtH of the law should it bo.
■Wednesday morning and afternoon

versity of Oregon will have an oppor
tunity to reward well-deserved merit,
in voting for candidates who seek offi
ces in the student body.
Let merit be the deciding factor in
marking the cross before the man or
woman you would have represent Ore
gon next fall. Weigh his or her qunli-,
fications well in the scales of adapts i
bility, merit and capacity for work.
Reward the deserving. Reject the
inefficient. Let no man cast his ballot !
for friendship’s tie alone, where ability
is lacking. Let not the potty grievance!
of yesterday turn you from right vet
Vote intelligently. Poor well into
tho works of those who seek office—
crown him or her whoso very action has
Imirrored Oregon in the fullest degree.
Remember the year that lies before us
—perhaps the biggest in our history.
Play fair with Oregon, and lot the dic
tates of an honest conscience cast yoqr
vote at the ballot box on Wednesday.
HANK FOSTER BILL HAYWARD
If Oregon Spirit, that intangible
something that grips one and keens
his very nerves, was ever expressed it
was voiced last Friday afternoon on
Kincaid Field in the personages of
Hank Poster and Hill Hayward.
Hank Foster sacrificed his future
health, oven endangered his life, in
that heart-rending last ipinrtormilo of
the relay race. Tired, worn almost to
exhaustion under the strain of winning
first in four events, he entered the re
lav to win for Oregon. lie received
the baton from the proceeding lemon
yellow runner some ten yards behind
his Aggie competitor, (lathering all
his energy, and calling on his already
over taxed reserve powers, lie sped over
the track gaining inch by inch until it
seemed as if ho might win. Hut the
demand was too much for his strength,
he fell over the tape a scant yard be
hind Kirkcnslager. He had given his
best, he fell in complete exhaustion and
lie epitomized Oregon in that race,
never did a man diplasy more genuine
grit and gameness than Hank Foster.
He was an expression of Oregon
And Hill Hayward he who has eu
deared himself to all Oregon men and
women; his expression was none the
less potent although voiced by word of
mouth of the inner being of the man.
Bill had set his heart on winning the
meet. The second O. A. (’. runner in
the relay was clearly seen by all to run
past the ten yard mark receiving the
baton from his preceding team-mate.
Technically the race could have been
protested, the judges had seen the foul.
Bill Hayward was appealed to—if
rightfully allowed it would have won
the meet for Oregon. “No, let it go,”
was Bill’s reply.
In those few words was the inner,
the “Oregon” expression of Bill Hay
ward. His sportsmanship arose domi
nant over his desire to win, and have
it be said afterwards that Oregon won
by protesting, which she had a legiti
mate right to do. All credit to O. A.
C.—they won the meet. But still great
er glory to Bill Hayward—he will ever
remain in our hearts. He was Oregon
—big and triumphant in an emergency.
Junior Week-end is over, our guests

recently been changed over from horse

luck and got to go down to Cannes |

the Sth division team. It was a high
class affair just like the national j
championship in the states. Williams

Saturday night gathered about the
stage to hear Governor Oleott make
awards for every human accomplish

University were a jewelry shop. Arthur
Tuck, of Redmond, Dorothy Duniway
and Herald White were the three who
left the prom with all they could carry
of the college silver ware.
Each time Tuck walked forward to
receive a medal or cup the applause
became stronger and when ho was
handed his eleventh award the very
walls threatened to cave in. Although
Tuck was the center of much enthus
iastic praise, college students evinced
even more interest in the awarding of
the Koyl and Gerlinger cups, which
went to representative juniors. Cam
pus talk has named several class mem
bers as the winners, but not until
Governor Oleott pronounced the names
