Polndexter accused; the ' Democratic
leader of a Violent change of policy since

equivalent to leading an army Into the
field on Germany's side." ';

Salem, Oct. 18. The status of Ben
W. Olcott as governor has again been
brought Into the limelight in a let
ter by Sam A., Kozer, deputy secre
tary of state, to Attorney General
Brown, asking for an opinion as to
whether provision should bo made
for infcluding the office, of governor
of .Oregop as one ot the offices to be
voted ,upon at the-1920 election?

prompted by; the approach of the time
when his office must begin preparations
of the necessary blanks and ballot forms
for the primary election next May, -these
including official certification to the
county; clerks of the various offices to
be filled at such election. .

lengthy deliberation, ruled on the status
of the governorship in an opinion handed
down early ' last Jane, there was - no

Olcott was governor to fact to serve out
the remainder of the unexpired term of
the late Governor Withycombe. -Justice
Bennett, although refusing to express
any opinion on this phase of the ques
tion, because he claimed it -was- not
property before the court, did say that
if he should don his official robes and
give utterance to his "half baked street
opinions," he would agree -with Chief
JuBtlee McBride on this point. .

experiment of the Times in which it
appeared this morning with one page

The system we used is sot only -rac-tlcable,
but is immensely so," he told
the. United Press. , ""We see ; Improve
ments that will be made when it ta dons

within 10 years the linotype wOl be a

The Use of photo, engravings is a
simple economic development In ellmW

Although simple, it is revolutionary.

can repeat the process at a saving to

for this morning's page, agreed : that
the process could be speeded up until

the improvements they - had . accomp
