Public Campaigns for Candidates?
With student-body nominations here again, we are reminded
of a thought which a zealous young politician put into our head
not so very long ago; to-wit, that after all it might be well to
have some of Oregon’s aspiring office-seekers make a public
appearance before election day.
Up at the University of Washington, for instance, the cam
pus has a lot of fun out of its campaign. Speeches are made,
mud is slung quite openly, and the young Washingtonians get
some experience in public life that is interesting, if not always
At Oregon, strangely enough, it is considered rather bad
manners to electioneer, even for one’s best friend. The man
who is active in student affairs and has really earned a right
to run for office is often at an unfair disadvantage because of
the opposition he must meet from those whom he opposed in
earlier contests or activities. This makes this campus an ex
cellent stamping-ground for “dark-horses.” This situation could
be improved by having the candidates for the leading political
offices make some sort of public appearance. Even leaders are
not known by everyone, and it makes for more intelligent voting
if the campus has a chance to at least see the one who is making
a bid for votes.
Perhaps the custom could be established whereby candi
dates for the more important offices could make a short talk
at the time nominations are made. This would be especially
valuable in a “dark-horse” year, for executive heads of the A.
S. U. 0. often have to represent Oregon publicly, either at home
or on other campuses. A good public appearance and the ability
to make a creditable speech are highly desirable requisites for
the top-notch student-body offices.
It would be interesting to see what the campus reaction
would be should one of the present crop of candidates stage an
old-time public election campaign.

PETER, “Oregon’s grand old
boss” and I wero in sessio nin my
office yesterday. Though Big Boss’s
political- days are nearly over, he still
shows an eagerness to help out the
younger and less experienced poli
ticians around the campus.
On account of his knowledge of law
and all of its functions I thought it
would be a wise idea to get informa
tion from him as to the possibilityof
Peter’s election for all-campus ad
However, ho said that the position
was a most responsible one and that
he would have to consider the matter
a little longer before deciding whom
he would have to succeed him.
He said that he was thinking of
having another machine this term but
! he didn’t exactly know just who
would drive around in it.
We would suggest but one thing.
When yon vote always consider
whether or not the candidates for
treasurer have pledged more than
| $100 toward the Student Union fund.
* « •
The handshakers here are nothing
to be afraid of. Peter says that up
at the University of Alaska, the ean
lidates carry around largo clubs with
them and the man who carries the
largest one is usually elected to his
| position. They don’t have to get
around the point there.
Hut anyway, may the political
stream be damned. Spring is here
and the trees and the birds and the
flowers. And just like the grass in
crannied way the Christmas jewelry
is beginning to turn ree.
And the maiden’s mind, like the
moon, though changeable, has always
the man in it. And the man’s mind
being stationary turns to what the
poet said it did. And so on. This,
however, is not a late argument for
the Student Union.
It i-> this kind of weather which in
spires one to compose and sing beau
tiful songs. 1’eter says he has com
posed two songs today. Peter is us

spiration. Jand the other he trills.,
