A stray Item la a newspaper an
nounces that Gilbert N. Haugen,
representative in congress from
the 4th Iowa district, is now serv
ing his 17th consecutive term. Ha
assumed the of flea In 1891. which,
by the way, was the year in which
Col. Dave Henderson of the 3rd
Iowa district succeeded Czar Reed
of Maine as speaker of the House.
I wonder if this isn't a record for
continuous service In the national
House of 'Representatives? Cer
tainly no other member of the
present congress has served so
long continuously. It is probable
that a number of folks now living
in this part of Oregon have known
Mr. Haugen personally. I remem
ber the time I first saw him in
the editorial room of an Iowa
weekly newspaper In 1198. ven
turing on his first campaign. A
few smart alecks, I recall, laugh-
tj at what they, termed the nerve

aspiring to a seat in congress. JLnd

not at the time seem to have many
points in common with Daniel
Webster and other poUtlcal bril
liants. Better for him, perhaps.

level-headed hard-working patriot
and honest citizen, Mr. Haugen,
and the folks In the old-home dis
trict Uke him first rate. Seventeen
consecutive terms attest the tact
with some eloquence.
