Portland, Or., May ,20. The leaeue
of nationg covermnt ls tne paramount
issue in Oregon's primary election to
morrow, both the republican and
democratic contests tending to serve
as a gauge of public sentiment in this
state on this momentous controversy.
. In the republican presidential pri;
mary the issue is the league with
to dictate American policies. The
same issue extends to the contest for
delegates to the republican national
President Wilson's league as
brought back from Versailles or a
league with reservations also Is the
issue In the democratic senntoriil
primary, with Harvey G. Starkweath
er advocating the WHsonian plan and
United States Senator George E. Cham
berlain silent on the subject.
President Wilson precipitated the
issue in the democratic primary when
he telegraphed the chairman of the
Multnomah county central commit
tee that the democratic party shouH
condemn the Lodge reservations as
destructive of world leadership by
America. . .
Although the name of Herbert
Hoover appears on the ballot as
candidate for the republican nomina
tion, his managers in Oregon have
asked republicans to throw their
strength to General Wood In an ef
fort to defeat Senator Johnson. There
is no contest in Oregon for the dem
ocratic presidential preference, the
name of William G. McA'doo being the
only one on the ballot.

hope that President Wilson and the

"This was, as I understand It." the
