This Is Republican Year
Support the Entire Party Ticket
It 's Coolidge Make It Unanimous
Every indication shows overwhelming sentiment for Coolidge. The Literary Digest straw vote, both in this
state and the nation, shows him at this writing leading his nearest opponent by more than two to one.
In urging votes for Coolidge, we ask Oregon citizens to elect to the congress men who will aid the President
in carrying out his policies, men who acknowledge party responsbility, men who will keep faith with the people
in carrying out the platform pledges.
YOU WILL FIND THESE MEN ON THE REPUBLICAN TICKET
Senator McNary deserves re-election. He has accomplished much for Oregon. Congressmen Hawley and Sinnott
should be returned because of service to their state. Maurice E. Crumpacker, candidate for the seat of the democratic
incumbent in the third district, should receive the votes of all republicans.
RESTORE THIS STATE TO CONTROL OF THE DOMINANT PARTY
Through the accident of death, the governor has named his own state treasurer. This is an elective office and the
people had elected a republican treasurer. By the appointment, Governor Pierce seized power not his by right and there
by dominates the state board of control. The balance will be restored by the election of Kozer and Kay.
It is important that all good citizens vote for Sam A. Kozer, candidate for re-election as secretary of state, and for
Thomas B. Kay, candidate for state treasurer, because their election will restore the affairs of Oregon, a strongly repub
lican state, to republican control.
OTHER CANDIDATES, TOO, ARE WORTHY OF VOTERS' SUPPORT
Judge Harry II. Belt, of Polk county, and Judge Percy R. Kelly, of Linn county, are both able jurists and candi
dates of the party for justices of the supreme court, Judge Kelly being a candidate to succeed the late John McCourt.
Both are eminently qualified.
I. II. VanWinkle, candidate for re-election as attorney-general; H. II. Corey, candidate for re-election as public ser
vice commissioner; Edward Ostrander, candidate for pubiic service commissioner; and J. D. Mickle, candidate for re
election as state dairy and food commissiooner, as well as the complete and legislative and full county tickets, vouched for
by the republican party, are worthy of support and deserve your votes.
