Read a few of many unsolicited press
comments .
The Portland Daily News, speak
ing of the Senatorial candidates,
"If ,we were entirely businesslike
in the conduct of our public affairs,
intent only upon getting the best
man available for the money, there
is no doubt whom we would employ.
"We would employ a man of prov
ed achievement, proved honesty, prov
ed fearlessness and trustworthiness.
We would employ a big man.
"And that man is Alfred E. Clark
of Portland."
The Toledo Leader: "Mr. Clark is
a man who has had a world of ex
perience, has the age, the dignity
and the ability , to represent the
people of this great state in the na
tional law ' making body as they
should be represented."
Eastern Clackamas News: "There
are few men in the state who are as
well Qualified for Senator as Mr.
The Condon Times: His (Mr.
Clark's), knowledge of public affairs,
his prominence as a lawyer and his
reputation as a speaker will prove
valuable assests should the people
desire to send him to Washington.

Senator Stanfield Renders
Great Service to Oregon
In an address sent to and
read before the Portland Ad
vertising Club, Wednesday, Ap
ril 21, 1926, United States Sen
ator Robert N. Stanfield said:
"When I entered the U. S.
Senate, March 4, 1921, agricul
ture was in dire straits, prices
were down, producers were
hard up and the banks and loan
companies in farming communi
ties were unable to realize on
the notes they held. Quick ac
tion was necessary to relieve
the agricultural distress, ,
Works Hard, With Gooding,
For Emergency Tariff
" After repeated efforts I suc
ceeded, assisted by Senator
Gooding of Idaho, in overcom
ing the objections of Senator
Penrose, Chairman of the Sen
ate Finance Committee, to an
emergency taritt on tarm pro-

ducts, and on May 27, 1921, the Emergency Tariff Bill became law.
This Act placed protective duties on 28 of the principal farm pro
ducts, including wheat, corn, potatoes, onions, cattle, meat, wool,
butter, cheese, milk, apples, cherries and nuts.
Stanfield Comes to Rescue With Amendment
"On May 20, 1921, the Stanfield Bill was introduced "to preserve
the livestock industry of the United States, to release for commer
cial, agricultural ' and industrial purposes certain funds of banks,
livestock loaning and trust companies, to amend the war finance
corporation act, and for other purposes."
"The Stanfield Bill, or its principal provisions, became a law on
August 24, 1921, the Senate Committee on Agriculture submitting
its main features through Senator McNary as an amendment substi
tuted for the Norris Bill, along with other provisions. Under its
terms the War Finance Corporation made advances for agricultural
relief amounting to $298,000,000, of which the banks, trust and loan
companies of Oregon that serve agriculture received $6,696,000.
Drafted Into Relief Service by Treasury Department
"As soon as the War Finance Corporation was prepared to fun
tion under this law, and at the request of the Treasury. Department,
I went West, where I spent months assisting and advising with the
bankers, thereby enabling them to procure the needed help quickly
and before it was too late to save them. Fortunately, very few fail
ed in Oregon in comparison to other states.
Forced to Keep Silent to Protect the Banks
"Much was said about my absence from the Senate during this
time, but I was forced to keep silent and go about my work without
referring to my mission, because if the people had known why
J was in the West and what I was doing, suspicion would have been
directed to every bank I entered, and to every banker with whom I
talked. Until the banks could turn their frozen paper into liquid as
sets, my silence was imperative to avoid embarrassment to them and
jhe defeat of the relief needed and sought."
