Finley or Hammond?
YESTERDAY at the student body meeting, two
candidates for presidency of the ASUO made
five-minute speeches stating their plans if elected.
One was Fred Hammond and the other Craig
Facing uncertain problems of administration,
complicated by the reorganization plans of the
student body, and confused and tired by the
intense pre-election preparations, both men offered
highly commendable and constructive platforms.
Although necessarily limited to generalizations by
the five-minute rule, the candidates were surpris
ingly lucid in the presentation of their ideas. And
it was significant and encouraging that both men
not only willingly supported the indefinte plans
for reorganization but also directed their remarks
toward IMPROVING THE UNIVERSITY'S RE
LATIONSHIPS WITH THE TEOPLE OF THE
Craig Finley's plans are apparently based on
more effectively correlating the student body and
laymen in the state by establishing a medium for
expressing this school’s hospitality both to visitors
and prospective students. This has long been a
real need at the University and would affect a
greatly improved layman opinion of this school.
# * *
Fred Hamomnd hopes to unite the student
body, eliminate petty political bickering, and
strive for an active, cooperative, and interested
student body, capable and willing to represent the
true feelings of the students on matters of import
to the University. Again a solution to one of the
school’s most pressing problems has been offered.
Both candidates expressed interest in a broad
distribution of campus jobs among both affiliated
and unaffiliated students.
It is probable that the plans of these two very
likely candidates will overlap in their efforts to
improve the student body. AfLer all, U*nr main
objectives include student body and University
* * #
With two men, both promising and progressive,
it will be difficult for the student electorate to
choose their president. The week preceding the
election offers both candidates ample time to
formulate the specific platforms on which they
hope to be elected. It is on these platforms, their
concreteness, their practicality, and the manner in
which they are presented, that the best man should
be chosen. It should be the end of the run that
In Good Hands
A T the same time that the student body was
nominating its student officers, the publica
tions committee and the executive council selected
tlie heads of the major student publications on
hied Colvig has been selected as editor of the
1036-37 Emerald. The selection of Colvig from
among the capable aspirants was not easy. Eut
the choice of this man places the Emerald in
good hands for next year.
Prior to the last two years not much has been
heard of Fred Colvig. With the exception of his
prominence in the school of journalism, necessary
outside work and a concerted attack on his studies
(resulting in excellent grades) has kept him from
general campus circulation. Recently, however, he
has become acquainted with a large part of the'
campus and has become a prominent figure in
administrative affairs of the student body.
He is learned, sound, and energetic. He is ver
satile, likeable, and cooperative. The student body
is fortunate to have him as editor of the Emerald.
« ■* *
Walter Vernstrom, by steady, sincere, and
effective work, has built himself into the business
managership of the sheet. He, too, will contribute
greatly to the success of the sheet.
As editor of the Oregana, Don Casciato should
be highly successful. Not only has he proven him
self able as a journalist and student of journalism,
but he possesses a personality that is engaging
Ed Morrow, the selection for business manager
of the Oregana, is not without experience. His
work on this year’s book was very commendable
and has been a contributing factor in the promised
success of the venture.
* * *
Thus the year 1936-37 will find the student
publications in fine shape.

EVILS OF MODERN MATRIMONY
Hampshire Gazette, May 29, 1799.
(Editor's note: The following excerpt is taken
from a bound volume of issues of the Hampshire
Gazette for the year 1799, which was found by
school children in an abandoned house in Port
land, and given by them to a teacher, who sent
it to Prof. R. C. Clark, head of the history
OEETNG that the present state of matrimony
^ hath lately been taken into very high consider
ation, and very severe remarks made thereon, al
though no remedy hath yet been proposed, except
some small additions to the undergarments of
certain public dances; I have bestowed a consider
able portion of time and attention on the subject,
and having flattered myself that I have found out
both the cause and the remedy for matrimonial
infidelity, I now send you the results of my labors.
It has never been well with matrimony since
a lover could visit his mistress by the house door.
When there were windows und garden walls and
rope ladders, and when it was an even chance
whether a man saluted his mistress on the hard
ground, a man learned to set a just value at what
had been achieved at so much risk.
And young ladies, too, permit me to say,
would naturally be much more attached to a man
who had ventured his neck only for a five minute
conversation, than to one who had come (juietly
in at the door, in the presence of the whole family,
und without the smallest danger.
Ah! These were happy days, when every step
to gain a meeting was attended with the most
delightful palpitations; and when the terrors of
the blunderbuss prescribed a tiptoish caution, that
is not known in our time. Then, sir, a courtship
was a regular siege, and the lovers were acquainted
with all the stratagems of war. To be known to
be in love was to be known to be in danger; and
when a parent discovered his son’s passion, he
locked up all firearms and other hurtful weapons;
and when uneasy in his absence, instead of the
present vulgar mode of sending a servant, would
have ordered the ponds to be dragged. These were
Marriage, sir, is greatly too easy, and what
is the consequence'! We have lost the noble passion
of jealousy, that great preservative of a man's
honor that watchful spy and informer, who was
always ready to give notice of a plot before it
was hatched, and could cook up a most admirable
conspiracy without the help of conspirators. No
man can tell what are the comforts of jealousy,
and what the security it affords, but the happy
few who possess it in its original and uncomipled

carried, and release the eggs.
After each release, the cadet's
curiosity would rise to fever

the edge of the bomb trap to
see how good his marksmanship
Unfortunately, however, he
leaned too far. He released the
bomb, then lost his balance and

alone in their surprise, for the

of the Caterpillar club.
