FOUMDOP 1831 i EIGHTYFIRST YEAR Salem, Oregon, Sunday Morning, May 1, 1932 No. 314 , 9 riK ELEGT10NEAR Talk Scarce but Centered Chiefly in District Congress Race Steiwer '' Appears to Hold Edge for Reelection; Cfark is Active By; SHELDON T. SACKETT With election only 20 days away, Mr. Average Voter la as yet quiescent In his attltnde to wards political affairs. At least few voters are talking. The can didates, as numerous as lilac blos , soms on an old, tree, are' busy, hut the campaign if such the decidedly Individualistic affairs staged by each office aspirant may be called la yet to come. Everyone In Marion county in terested In politics inquires about the chances of Hon. W. C. Hawley for renomination and reelection. James W. Mott, state' corporation commissioner, and Charles C. Hulet, former master of the grange, i are the most active in their candidadea, against him. Mott lsworking as hard on his S campaign as he did on cleaning up financial racketeers lasJLyear J3ut he is not so sanguine ofre aults: his ODDOsltion which fce- suits; nis opposiuon. wu sides Huei ano nswiej utlu ;iTTe8ts. Emmett Howard of Eugene, stands pat and seems to divide his vote. Howard will not carry his own county of Lane, observers there say, and his supposed suppert by the "wets" faded away during the week when that aggregation as 'represented In the Hopgrowers league put Its approval on. Mott. Hawley, through Ronald G. Glov er, his long-time campaign mana ger, is cultivating the district thoroughly with letters to close friends accompanied by adequate campaign material) Steiwer Seen Hard to Unseat It Is hard to see at this date how any candidate can upset Frederick W. Steiwer, senator, in his race for the republican nom ination. Colonel A. E. Cl?"k of Portland is covering the state but persons who have attended meet ings held in his behalf report au diences small and enthusiasm slight. Clark is an excellent citi sen and an able man but his campaign, even with the-qulet en dorsemeifc of - Governor Meier, lacks flash and fire. " Robert N. Stanfield secured the endorsement of the Hopgrowers this week' and his managers say his experience in the senate; his known and avowed wetness I and th tiria i service for the state ' eight years go when he secured the federal payment of moneys to timber counties will .bring him the nomination. But the Stanfield men are Ty no means as strong In numbers as in hope. Governor j Silent On Politics - , - , Kenneth Harlan. Portland util ity fighter, is in, the ring prom ising everything in his 20-point platform j from surtaxes on the rich to plenty of federal help to every federal and free power for everyone. It is hard to see how Harlan should be taken seriously yet Portlanders predict he will run next to Steiwer in Multnomah county because public ownership has become well-nigh a mania with many citizens who look upon Harlan as an apostle, without su perior, of the rights of the com mon man. Harlan's campaign lit erature which Is plentiful apes thatr of George Joseph in makeup and! Includes praise from Joseph for Harlan as well as a picture of the "little corporal of the com mon people." Governor Julius L. Meier, like a boy tired of a new plaything, seems utterly apathetic on things ha looki on at the skirmishings with passive interest j . and perhaps has contributed j modest amount to the Clark efc- chequer. But the governor is not In'fighting trim as he was after the death of George Joseph. He spends a decreasing amount oi time in Salem, and his discussions are apparently limited to execu tive and administrative problems. Mrs. Pierce May be Replaced With all the turmoil In the highway commission a thing of history nd with a, new commis sion as peaceful as three turtle doves, the board of higher educa tion becomes the point for pos sible upheavals. Noticeably irked is Mrs. Walter M. Pierce who for the past two sessions of the board baa. evidenced her displeasure by staying entirely away from Port land. Mrs. Pierce wTote much of the curriculum committee's report which tho board adopted, albeit some of the members squirmed and protested. The very next meeting the process of chiseling the report began and Mrs. Pierce didn't like . such action.

The strange quirks of political events of the past week, witk.the national conventions less than two months away, not only halted for the first timeO- the rush of Franklin D. Roosevelt toward the democratic nomina tion, with Alfred E. Smith fur nishing the 'impediment, but also added Michigan to the states ad vocating a moist plank In tho re publican platform. Smith left no doubt In the minds of politicians that he was out to stop his successor at Al bany when, In commenting on his capture of the Massachusetts del egation of 36. he said, "I guess that puts a chock under the old band-wagon." The supporters of both are still making varying- claims as to the division of Pennsylvania's 76 del egates. The Roosevelt claims run as high as 66 and those for Smith 44. The preference vote there is virtually assured the present New York governor, but this Is not binding on the delegates. Coming so soon after the Mas- ,arhusetts and Pennsylvania con California's primary Tues day will be watched with unusual Interest It will bra three-way contest for 44 delegates, bringing together for the first time, Roose velt, Smith and Speaker Garner. Unlike Pennsylvania and most other primary states, the prefer ence decision there is binding on the delegates. There will be no doubt as to the victor when the votes are counted. April Total is $43,734; Repair and new Jobs Are Numerous Building permits taken, out here list month were the highest since .last July and almost equal to those of April 1931 and 1930, according to Inspector E. C. Bushnell's report made yesterday. The month's total was 530.709.50 in new construction and $13,025 in repairs and alterations, $4X- 734.50 in all. The July, 1931, permits were but $1105.45 over those of the past month. For April, 1931. they were $45,838.95; for April, 1930, $58,707.75, and for April, 1929, $150,532. ,Up to last month, February was the heaviest building period of 1932,- when permits totalled $14,274.25. January was $8360 and March, $10,848.05. Fire is Cause Of Large Jobs Over half of the month's per mit value resulted from the fire which in March gutted the Brey man and White business blocks and burned out Directors', Mac Marr's and Byrnes', Inc. Recon struction "of the two buildings was begun last week with the to tal cost estimated at $20,000. Byrnes', under the new name of Fred Meyer, moved into the old telephone building, requiring al terations amounting to $2000, according to the building permit. Two other large projects were begun during the month. Con struction of a $12,000 store building on South Commercial street for D. B.

Professor Cameron Marshall, head of the university music de partment, has been figuring and planning on the tour for some time and his proposal-met with the unanimous approval of the committee, however with the de tails to be arranged later. The tour will be through the western states and particularly In the northwest. Prof. Marshall be lieves that this will be excellent advertising for Oregon. Salem and Willamette university. It is also planned to take the stringed quartet along with the choir. The traveling group would consist of 28 students, a chaperon and Professor Marshall, being the largest undertaking of its kind ever launched here. The choir and the stringed quar tet returned recently from a brief tour of a number of Oregon and Washington towns along the Co lumbia river and Portland. The group was well met In all of Its appearances and the broadcast in Portland brought many com pliments. .Talent for the choir was plenti ful this year and the competition 'rV-.J'lll : r . .,r!
