'UnUtiauMt Quantity. . .
Oregon has met its ASUO and class officers for 1946-47.
All of the candidates presented at the assembly and class meet
ings will he elected. The election will decide what positions they
will hold.
Under the preferential system of voting, the student usually
votes for his first and second choices for positions on the execu
tive council. If he adds a third and fourth choice, he may weaken
the strength of his No. 1 and 2 votes. For instance, after an
established quota has been reached by a candidate for No. 1
position, his surplus votes are carried over to the second choice
marked on his pile of ballots. If that candidate reaches the quota,
the surplus votes are carried over to the No. 3 candidate marked.
Both candidates for representatives from each class are
automatically assured election. There are two positions open
for each class, and only two candidates have been nominated
for each. Usually a student votes only for one.
Balloting for class officers holds to the same rule as that
for ASUO officers.
The slates offered by the two parties indicate that neither
is confident of pulling a large majority. If either party believed
it could draw a great enough vote, it would have nominated
three or four candidates instead of two. In such a case, the sur
plus votes from Nos. 1 and 2 would he enough to elect a third
candidate from the party.

The unknown quantity in this election, as in many preceding
ones, is the great number of students not affiliated with any
living organization or social group, such as Orides and Yeomen.
Both the Greeks and Independents are courting their favor.
If they go to the polls Tuesday in any number proportionate
to their strength, they will decide the elections.
The position of the unaffiliated students is unique. Their
vote is the least likely to be prejudiced by conventional party
lines and the most likely to be a result of individual thought.
After a pre-decided nominations assembly, the knowledge
that the decision will be up to the most individualistic students
is one bright spot in student politics.
Telling the Editor
About Lewis . . .
Ted Hallock's comment regard
ing' the nomination of John L. Lew
is “as the biggest fool in the his
tory of labor's rise to power” is a
fine example of what may happen
to a man who sits behind a type
writer until he loses control of
the keys. He suggests that such a
movement might start with the
most “earnest defender” of labor,
whoever that might be. And final
ly, he decides that this is a case
where the union has allowed a
leader to ascend whose ambitions
are undemocratic.
I am not labor's most “earnest
defender,” and still I can see no
reason why Lewis should be push
ed to the forerank of fools. Rather,
I’m inclined to believe that those
who treat the subject lopsidedly
and after the manner of "hacks,”
who some time ago succumbed to
the facility of holding Lewis and
the miners up to public shame, are
the real fools and constitute a
threat to society by virtue of their
position to tamper with that thing
called public opinion.
No one who is informed will
deny the worthiness of the present
union proposal to establish a fund
for miners and their families in
case of disability. Courts have rec
ognized the rights of the better
ment strike, which is purely a de
fensive weapon of the union and
does not originate with the leader,
as assumed by Hallock.
Finally, the last source of preju
dice should be a column in the Uni
versity paper. There is a little sign
in the city room of the Emerald
which bears this principle: “Think
before you write.” I suggest that
Hallock move his typewriter with
in easy eyeshot of this reminder
when he undertakes his next dis
cussion of labor and its leaders.

By Rex Gunn
One day in 1904 a huge beagle
hound who resided upon the estate
of Mr. Byron Franks, a politician,
was heard to roar most earth-shak
Investigating neighbors found
the hound's roar resulted when a
set of red-hot teeth clamped into
his nether quarters. The teeth were
not false, they belonged to, were
conceived by, and had grown in the
mouth of Mr. Franks; but it was
nevertheless disturbing • to the
neighbors to find the portly old
gentleman being dragged about
his own living room floor with his
teeth buried in the hide of the
bounding beagle hound.
Hot Plot
When disengaged, Mr. Franks
was inarticulate, his teeth were
cherry red and boiling in the bloody
gums, the hound’s wound was sear
ed and still smoking, and the hound
was highly enraged and indignaij^.
It was found, after a dentist had
done away with the fiery teeth,
that Mr. Franks had bitten the
hound in agony; upon hearing this,
the hound shook its head and point
ed to its rear haunch but Mr.
Franks confirmed that story.
“I was sitting in my favorite
chair attempting to relax,” he said,
“when I felt my teeth growing
warm. I dismissed it as sheer fan
cy, but when my gums began fry
ing, I lost control and bit what
was closest.”
For years, the mystery of the
fiery teeth went unsolved. Doctors
gave up in despair. Psychiatrists
muttered something about extreme
emotional phenomena resulting
from perpetual struggle in a high
ly competitive society, but wh^i
asked for a quotation they always"
threw in a word the reporters
couldn’t spell and smirked.
Sociologists figured there was
something to that emotional phe
nomena business, but they were
surprised to find that M. Franks
had always been a Republican of
moderate tastes with an equitable
temper and no blemishes on his
record. He attributed his success
in politics to the fact that he “nev
er got excited even in the midst of
a red-hot campaign when his op
ponents muck-raked and smeared
and lied in their teeth.”
A smart, young entomologist
from Boston solved the case after
reading the above quotation.
“Politicians are comparable to
