But a number of Portland lawyers
yesterday examined tha ststa-laws and
Ine l"ntted ritate Constitution s;overn
ine tbe election of United Mates Sena
tors and are convinced tbat there
nothing to prevent one man seeking"
election for both the abort term and
tha Ions; terms. This conclusion i
based oa the theory that tha dual can
didacy would Involve the same po
sition, but would cover two terms and
for that reason would not coma within
that prohibition la the state statutes
which prohibits a man irora peine;

There Is another provision lo the
state law which seemlnsjly would make
It Impossible for the same candidate
to run for the short and the lone terms.
That section provides tbat tbe nam of
a candidate shall appear upon the
printed ballot tn only on place. Hut
this position, aa It applies to tbe Sena

studied the lea-at aide of the contro

F. W. Mulkey. es-lnlted btalea Sen
ator, was on of tha lawyers who yes
terday tborouaoly examined this sub
vert and be la firmly of tba opinion
that Senatorial aspirants csn seek elec
tion for both the short and lb loos
terms Me said:
"There are only thre sections of our
rode which poesibly could raise the
atatton of tn qualification of any
candidate eeeklns election for both

Tha only construction that will civ

nominees as distinguished from can

prevent the name of a nomine from
appearing more than one on tha Aus

"Section 11); Is a statut that at
tempta to prevent and doea prevent any
person from holding more than one of
fice at tbe same time. If any portion
of the tenure of the two offices Is con
current, section iJ-7 prevents a person
from barltr bis nsma placed upon tbe
ballot for more than one of such offices
having concurrent tenure.
"In the rase of tba long terra for
l'nlted States Senator sad the short term
.'or L'nlted Ststes Senator now confront
lag the people of Oregon, the tenure Is
not concurrent. The long term naturally
aucceeds U short term. Anyone who
holds tbe short terra Is not disquali
fied from holding the lone term. Hence,
the only section of our statutes that
could possibly prohibit the same name
going on tba ballot for both tbe short
and the long terms baa do application.
"Further than that, there Is another
reason why the asm nam can be
designated twice, but separately, for
the long sad the short term and that
is: If the Legislature really Intended
by section 1137 to prohibit the nam
of a candidal going on the ballot for
long and a abort Senatorial term.

the Govornor must Issue a writ of elec

New Standard of Motor Efficiency and Power
WHEN a motor rated by S. A. E. formula at only 16.9 horse
power, develops in authentic test over 43 horse, it is time to
revise all standards which have hitherto measured Gasoline
Engine Power and Efficiency. J That motor has arrived. I It is the
motor designed by Eay Harroun for the car that bears his name.
A Triumph of Engineering
There was never a motorist who did not
covet for his car a surplus of good
qualities a surplus , of power, comfort,
efficiency and beauty.
The Harroun Motor Car meets this de
mand. Unlike other cars of conspicuously
high quality, the Harroun provides this
surplus within the range of popular
In the whole world of engineering
there is but one man who could have
designed this car.' That man is Ray
Harroun most versatile and most wide
ly experienced of automobile engineers.
A Rich Experience
Mr. Harroun is the only engineer who
has ever designed, built and driven a
car to a world's speedway championship.
He is conspicuously the greatest living
authority on carburetion.
As an engineering executive he has
designed and . built cars of high and
popular price. One of his touring cars
now holds the world's record for mechan
ical tirelessness an authentic run of
more than 22,000 miles without a motor
Through ail this wide range of expe
rience, Mr. Harroun always cherished the
belief that he might some time have free
opportunity to design and produce his
ideal motor car. - ,
The Harroun Motors Corporation gave
him this opportunity.
' Unhampered by any legacy of old
models, old machinery, old materials or
old policies, he has been able to endow
the Harroun motor car with details and
fundamentals of design that are new,,
exclusive and notably advanced.
A Marvelous Motor
Only a successful designer of racing
cars could have designed the Harroun
While developing a maximum- power
much greater than that of many motors
with larger cylinders or more of them
the Harroun will throttle smoothly
to the lowest speeds. Its range on high
gear is a revelation and its acceleration
comparable to no other car of like ef
ficiency. . Comfort That's New
Racing experience is also drawn oh
for the Harroun car's new spring suspen
sion a facility which enables it to travel
smoothly over rough roads, its tonneau
as comfortable as its front seat.
Yacht, lines such as any road leviathan
might well be proud of, and a quality of
finish which contrasts pleasantly with
the somber hues of most other cars, give
the Harroun a degree of beauty new to
its field. ...
A ride in it will tell you far more
effectively than is possible on the printed
page, how amply the Harroun makes
good the promises we give for it how
proud you yourself will be to call this
superlative car your own.
