field, has been generally conceded
to be a candidate for the repub
lican: nomination in May. Asked
Monday if he would run, the sen
ator replied that "the family and
the- friends of the late governor
are weighed down with" grief and
all citizens of Oregon are bowing
their heads In sorrowful respect.
Under these circumstances I do
not care to make a public state
ment." Denial that he was a candidate
for the -nomination was made by
Tom Kay, state treasurer, in re
sponse to a printed story Monday
afternoon in the Capital Journal
In which the headline read: "Tom
Kay to be a Candidate for Gor
ernor." Mr. Kay declared that a
"great many ; people had urged
him to take up the race but as yet
X hare not had time to thinir
about it." Kay said that within
the next few days he was going
to ' tire the matter considerable
thought. He added that he had
heard a great deal of encourage
ment for a race even before the
death jot the gorernor But that he
never seriously considered oppos
ing his long-standing friend.
-Wait a few days," said Mr. Kay
In making final statement.
Bennett Not Tet
Quite Ready to Talk
Senator J. E. Bennett of Mult
nomah ,county, already generally
understood to be a candidate, de
clared to The Statesman repre
sentative that "I am rather re
luctant to discuss my candidacy
at such an early date but since
you ask me, I will say that my
. record as a representative and
also as a etata senator will be my
, Bennett declared . that "other
issues will be freely discussed as
they are brought out. He said
further: "It is my hope that this
election may prore a turning
point in Oregon politics and that
people will cast their rote for or
a rain s t a candidate on his past
record of performances, rather
than on promises. In this cam
paign as In my previous ones I
shall rely for my support upon
the men and women of Oregon
who beliere in the things" for
winch I have fought and further
beliere that we need .more busi
ness men In public office."

about Salem Monday concerning

of state and now budget officer.
Kozer told The Statesman Mon

made for entering the race.

Robert W. Sawyer of Bend, and

for a campaign. Four weeks ago
the Judge declared to friends that

Mrs. Norblad laughed and said,

Mrs. Norblad truly is modest. In

Taking Friend and Ch
Standing at a window from
which the late Gorernor Patter
son had many times stood and
looking out orer the tops of the
same great trees of the state
house grounds orer which ho had
looked. Miss Beatrice Walton, pri.
rate secretary to the late gorer
nor spon-e orer the telephone to
some friend calling to offer con
solation Monday afternoon follow
ing the funeral service for the late
Gorernor L I Patterson. She
spoke in a low roice misty with
unshed tears, rery contrary to her
nsual crisp, efficient tone, and
this is what she was saying, "I
shall do as he would hare done -tear
a sheet from the book and
try to forget!"
In all the routine of continuing
the great state's business, the
cruel, but perhaps necessary haste
which seemed to leave little room
tor the expression of any feeling
except that of excitement and bus
tle,, there was one who perhaps
more than any other save Mrs.
Patterson, who really knew the
man for whom the state was sup
posed to grieve, and whoso heart
waa truly aching with a loss so
sudden that it eren staggered the
cold machinery of routine.
From the window she turned
and sat down at her accustomed
desk, facing me. Her eyes were
heavy with tears that had been
shed, and with those that would
still come quickly If sternest self
control had not been nsed; and
they circled with loss of -sleep.
Miss Walton, thinking the gorer
nor to be tn nowise a serious con
dition had left Saturday for San
Francisco on business. She re
ceived the wire telling of the gor
ernors sudden death, Saturday
night on the train, but not until
it was too late for her to make
connections with a train return
ing te Portland. She had to go on
to 8aa Francisco and there she
turned hack and immediately re
traced her steps arriring at the
state hoase during the impres
sive funeral service conducted in
the noose of representatires.
Her first words as she faced me
were I am terribly distressed that
pened. I had no idea that such a
X was not hero, when this hap-
tning had the renxotest possibility
of happening.' .,;A"
And then she continued in a

Gorernor Patterson's unfinish
ed term of office will go down In
history as one of the outstanding
ly smooth and efficient terms in
Oregon state history. Miss Walton
says tnis js true not because the
term was uneventful or free from
disturbing influences far from
it but because of the marvelous
ability ot the man at the helm to
iron out difficulties, quietly and
Justly. , -
But with all this sadness in her
heart. Miss Walton turned to the
problems of the new gorernor and
his wife left almost In bewilder
ment with the sudden responsibil
ities and displayed some of the
poise which, she perhaps had ab
sorbed from the man so recently
her superior. Speaking with Mrs.
Norblad tn the governor's office,
she said, "The problems win all
ravel out If yon take things slow
ly and giro them a bit ot time,"
and continued that with Mr. Nor

there would be erery reason to
