PTJGET SOrND BUREAU. Seattle,
Wash., Nov. 2. Candidates for of-
ice and political party managers

vere all Involved; but country regis-
ration shows an increase, and the
otal registration in the state is
nuch larger than in 1918, the last
r.eceding political off year.
With the close of registration on
October 17, Spokane had registered
ibout 6000 less and Tacoma about
.000 less than in 1920. In most of
he smaller cities there has been
iroportional shrinkage. The big
ilump is in Seattle, where registra
ion is now about 27,000 less than
n 1920. Oh the other hand, the
ountry districts, wherein registra
ion is necessary only once in four
ears, provided the voter turns up at
ach general election, have held
heir 192-0 figures and added many
City Registration Ntw.
City registration is all new this
.ear. The spring municipal cam
paigns were tame by comparison
with many of the fights of former
. ears and did not excite or scandal
ise the electorate to the point of
leavy registration. Conditions were
lifferent in 1920, when radicalism
was an issue in nearly every city
campaign and the former laborites
md non-partisan leaguers were
uusy in every part of the state.
In Seattle's 1920 city campaign,
for example, more than 100,0-00 citi-
ens qualified to vote by register
ing. James A. Duncan, radical sec
retary of Seattle's central labor
-ouncil, was then a candidate tor
nayor against Major Hugh M. Cald
well. Caldwell won by a big ma
jority. Duncan is now the farmer-
labor candidate for United States
senator and Major Caldwell is tour
ing: the state speaking for Senator
Poindexter and the republican
Seattle Interest Keen.
The big -national and state issue
of 1920 ran Seattle's registration up
to nearly 120,000 in advance of the
all elections. By that time Spo
kane's registration had reached
41,204 and Tacoma's was 38,400. This
year's showing is Seattle 92.245, Spo
kane 35,147, Tacoma 33,427.
Registration returns made by all
cities and country precincts to the
secretary of state indicate an aggre
gate registration over the whole
state of approximately 450.0(H). in
round numbers. Party leaders and
ampaign managers have usually
felt that they were doing pretty
well to bring out 05 per cent of the
registered vote on election day in an
off year. On that very conservative
basis the slate vote November 7
should be around 290,000 to 300,000.
Even with no more than a 65 per
cent vote it seems impossible to fig
ure success tor .either of the parties
opposing the republican. In 1920,
with a total vote of 444,684, the re
publican vote for president was
223,137, considerably more than half,
or a clear majority over all.
Jones' Victory Recalled.
Wesley L. Jones was re-elected
senator with 217,069 votes as against
99.309 for his nearest competitor,
the farmer-labor candidate. Going
back to the off year of 1918, the
total vote cast in the state was only
215.684. Of this number 112,166 were
republican votes, as against 81.350
for the democratic ticket and 7S70
for the socialists.
It is necessary to refer all the
way back to the upset of 1916 to
f'nd any statistical ground for anti-republican-hopes.
Kven in that year.
with a total vote cast of 392,709, the
republican vote for president was
167,208 only 16,180 less than was
given the democratic candidate
while Senator Poindexter was
elected with 202,287 votes as against
lJ5.oj for 1ns democratic opponent
This year's party managers, prop-
prly concerned with the success of
their party tickets, naturallv ap
praise the situation on the evidence
of general apathy toward the strife
between individual candidates. There
has been no wild rushing of voters
to attend campaign meetings and
hear the issues discussed; nor has
there been any noticeable rush of

candidate Senator Poindexter, for
example doesn't necessarily mean
that republicans are going- to stay
away from the polls on election day.
Party managers, in a word, are not
giving enough credit to the pull of
various unpartisan issues in which
a good many thousands of voters
are intensily interested. Initiative
No. 46, the 30-10 plan, and referen
dum No. 13, affecting physical ex
amination of children in school, are
particularly powerful incentives to
voting this year, and Influential
forces are arrayed on either side of
the various other questions sub
mitted directly to the people. All
these things will bring voters to
the polls, though they have no effect-in
bringing voters to strictly
Judged by the figures of the more
recent past elections and by rea
sonable analysis of present condi
tions, it would seem that better than
a 65 per cent vote might well be ex
pected. The same sort of judgment
will indicate that, whatever the
proportion of the vote to the regis
tration, the republican share should
rup to half the total and will prob
ably be a clear majority over the
combined vote of the divided demo
cratic and farmer-labor opposition.
EXECUTIVE SECRETARY OF
Dr. R. E. Close Takes Position
as Worker With Anto
Although announcement has not
been made from any official source,
it became known yesterday that
Dr. R. E. Close had resigned as
executive secretary of the Portland
Council of Churches and that the
registration was accepted- at a
meeting of the council last Friday.

performed by Dr. Close has been

This man, a well-known minister,
who did not wish to be quoted, said
that Dr. Close's retirement was

fact that the church council has
been forced to make retrenchment
in the expense of conducting the
secretary's office and partly because

CHAMBER DIRECTORS TO DE

Unmerger Case Represented by
Three Camps; Special Com

Directors of the Chamber of Com
merce will endeavor to arrive at a
decision this afternoon in regard to
adoption or disapproval of the re
port of the special chamber commit
tee on the railroad unmerger situa
tion as it affects the interests -of
Oregon. The committee, after an
exhaustive inquiry into all phases of
the divorce of the Central Pacific
from the Southern Pacific, made the
recommendation that the Central
Pacific be left a separate railroad
system, the belief being expressed
that this would best serve Oregon
and its future.
The directors, however, were not
convinced that the decision was the
correct one ani have since with
held their approval of the report,
there being at least three camps into
which chamber directors are divided
One favors an independent Central
Pacific, another is for Its retention
by the Southern Pacific, while a
third group believes it will be to

the property to be entrusted to the

Dr. C. U. Moore conducted the
clinio and examined nearly 100 velvet-skinned
prides 0f Portland. In
calling attention of the mothers to
the defects of their offspring the
doctor frequently called on the
members of a high school class in
eugenics and the fact about teeth
was one of numerous bits of in
formation volunteered b ythe young
The babies examined yesterday
were all far above normal, as they
were being entered in the contest
being staged by the health exposi
tion to determine the most nearly
100 per cent American in Portland.
One of the most strongly accentu
ated features of the contest was the
fact that breast-fed Infants are far
and away healthier and better look
ing than the poor mewlers that start
o na bottle. One of the principal
points of difference between the
bottle-fed and the breast-fed baby
is the tint of the skin. Those who
take the food provided by nature
are noted fo rthe delicate pink of
their satiny coats. Babies fed on
artificial milk have white skins. .
Dr. Moore advised every mother
who came before him of the ad
vantages of breast feeding and de
clared that in only rare instances is
their any excuse for bottle feeding.
Mother's milk, he said, contains all
the elements that make for heaithy
babies up to weaning time.
But in some cases other foods
must be given to supplement this
natural food. It used to be ten years
ago, said the doctor, that no mother
would think of feeding an Infant
under two years of age vegetables.
It is modern practice to begin feed
ing vegetables at the age of seven
or eight months. Many medical
works on baby feeding are now out
of date, declared the clinic lecturer.
Atablespoonful of raw cabbage
juice a day is a good thing to give
some infants. Tomato juice or that
of oranges are also advisable under
certain conditions. These and many
other interesting and useful bits of
knowledge were imparted by the
doctor at yesterday's clinic.

Frank J. Murphy, Wilkens' counsel,
said today in his final argument to
"Henry Wilkens succumbed to the
same temptation that has changed
the history of the world and has

"but that is not to be considered in

accused as a co-consipartor with
