If People Vote "Adopted" Law,

Signature I "Adoption."
Adoption at the lt election f
niuurt combining city and state elec
tions baa thrown Into chaos the oues
tlon of terms of present members of
the City Council. Commissioners Kel
laher and Blgelow. whose terms are
the next to expire, are not certain yet
whether they mast seek re-election
xt November or whether their terms
wtn .xt.nd for two rears from that
cats, or a year and a half longer than
the usual terra of such office. Other
members of the Council also are Involved.
It begin to look as though com
missioner Ksllaher wl'.l have to gain
re-election next November, while Mr.
ZUlegow may be able to escape until
two years from that time. Whether It
works out this way depends on the
way the law la Interpreted.
Under the terms or the measure
adopted by the voters the date of city
elections Is chanced to the date of
state elections. The act provides that
officials holding office at the time of
the "adoption" of the measure shall
hold office until successors are elected
and qualify. Much depends on the
word "adoption.- The law was passed
In June and at a time when Kellaher
was not a member of the Council.
Whether cassase by the people con
stituted "adoption or whether the
measure was not adopted until It was
aimed by the Governor Is the question.
Governor tvithycombe signed the
measure July - If the law was not
"adooted until It was signed by the
(Governor, all the present Council mem
bers were tn office. This would In
atcate that Commissioners Btgrlow and
Kellaher Instead of leaving office July
1. 11. would hold over until at least
November. 1:0. and possibly until Jan-
vary 1. l:i. There would be no elec
tion In the Interim and the law pro
vides that officials In office at the
time of the laws adoption should hold
Until successors are elected.
Zai It the law waa "adopted when
It was voted on by the people. Kellaher.
t least. Is out In the cold. He will
have to gain re-election next Novem
ber for the term commencing the fol
lowing July. Commissioner Bilegow
might have to be re-elected at that
time also, but probably would escape
for the loo -.r terra because he was In
fTlce when the law waa "adopted."
whether adoption waa on election day
r on the day when the Governor signed
The same situation Is true as rerards
Mayor Baker and Commissioners Mann
and Barbur. except that their regular
terms have three and a ilf years yet
to run In any event. The tangle may
result tn their terms each being
tretched out a year and a half or In
their being required to gain re-election
eight months In advance of the expira
tion, of their terms.

ter that the proceeds of benefit per

u riven by the Portland chapter
some weeks before the ruling; ag-alnst

F. L. Nag-el, president of the orrertiia
tlon. that the Auditorium will be
crowded to the roof. "The expenses
will be at a minimum." he said. "They
will consist of the rent of the building,
the piintlna- and In some few Instances
of children's costumes. Virtually the
entire proceeds will be net and this will
all ro to the Red Cross."
There will be several hundred par
ticipants tn the entertainment and ar
rangements have been made for elec
trical effects. The large stage at the
auditorium will give greater oppor
tunity to Professor Gens than he has
had In previous years.
