Entered at the Postofflce in Salem, Oregon, as second class matter.
A resolution was presented in the United States Senate,
recently, which might settle the Newberry case by declaring
both Newberry and Ford ineligible to hold the office.
Most men will agree that Newberry violated the written
law. But under the abnormal situation of 1918, even viola
tion of the written election law might be a merit. President
Wilson, egotistical, inordinately jealous of personal standing,
espoused the Ford candidacy with the whole weight of the
government and of his personal political power. He demand
ed that the people sacrifice all political affiliations, not to
"support the government," which the whote nation was do
ing to the limit of-its strength, but to vindicate and glorify
him personally by supporting his -party name. It was up to
Newberry to do one of three things Sacrifice his political
beliefs at the President's demand and be a slave like the ne
gro Who blacks his master's boots or curries his poodle dog;
openly fight the government as an autocracy that was worse
even than Huh jdpminatio ; or, get Jds dollars, into the fight
and counteractrthe President's incredible autocracy. There
had been no written ;' law, against suck presidential gro
tesquerte; no other President had ever had the effrontery,
the un-American -brutality,' to so seek, to override :the popu
lar, will. And-yetf it was a moraHapse that needed to be
punished; even the violation of the written law against the
misuse of money, might be a virtue if it destroyed this mon
archial tendency of the President.
; No law can now punish the President for his grotesque
misinterpretation of Americanism; perhaps no law need to
be written against a recurrence of such an act, for not once
in a century does such a curious malformation as the Wilson
single-track mind come into power. ; Perhaps Newberry
should not profit by what was, and is, a legal offense; but
certainly Jvord should not profit by the moral crime that
prostituted the Presidency to put him into office. If the
Newberry election was bribery, not to say theft, certainly
the alternative Ford. victory would have an even less hoti
orable title. ','' V ;
: Nor is it intended in the-above to say that Henry Ford
might not have made, might not make, a splendidly service-

The torrential rains of Friday, Saturday, Sunday and

great floods of those years but in both, cases deen snows
were on the level and in the foothills, adding enormously to
the volume of water that had to be carried off. There have
been few if any times since the, settlement of the Willam

day. Clair Geddes, running for
the freshman class was second.
The time made by the first two
men was very good considering
the condition of the track.
The run was staged in a rain
storm andon a sea oi mud. The
track was covered with water in
places and the mud caused the
race to be one of endurance rather
than of speed.

Read what the Oregonian has
to say of his appearance in Port
land last week:
"nn audience that Was repre
sentative of musical Portland as
typified in students, teachers and
devotees of the piano filled the
Auditorium last night to hear Sau
vaine in concert.
Sanvaine Is a distinguished ar
tist and his playing is brilliantly
colored. His execution is clear,
concise, unhesitating, always with
the fine grain of perfect finish,
comprehensive . and intelligent.
His program included three num
bers from Chopin, the ".Etude in
E Major," "Three Preludes' and
"Waltz in E Minor;" two lovely
numbers of his own compositions,
"The Waltz of a Vienneze Doll"
and "The Mood of a Wanderer:"
"Clair de Lume" from Debussy Al
benlz's "Malaguena" and Tercy
Grainger's "Country Gardens."
One of his best-liked numbers
and one in. which he showed a
fine fire and- spirit was Tschai
kowsky's "Concerto in Ii-flat Mi
ndr," the first movement of which
had been arranged as a piano solo
by Mr. Sauvaine. After this num
ber the Ampico played certain
portions from Sauvaine's personal
recording for that instrument.
The Ampico, recognized by mu
sicians and music lovers alike as
one of the greatest inventions of
the age, occupied the center of
the great stage and magic melo
dies proceded from it quite as jf
unseen, fingers played. The audi
ence sat spellbound, for the elec
trical attachment which control
led the mechanism had been turn
on off-stage and the wonder of
hearing the instrument play un
aided brought attendant thrills.
The playing is in no sense mechan
ical aud the pianissimo is fault
lessly rendered, a quality too
often lacking in pianos that are
eelf-playing. The entertainment
was sponsored by the G. F. John-i
son Piano company. ;
