When asked regarding the political
situation in Oregon Judge Bennett said:
"The election of Harry Lane as mayor
of Portland was no surprise to me for
I have always had confidence in, the
people's ability .to choose and choose
wisely. Mayor Lane proved himself to
be a friend of the people and a man who

In answer to the question as to who
he 'thought would be the next United
States senator from Oregon, Judge Ben

the Democratic candidate-and that the

Charles Fulton. As to whether Cham
