In discussing the candidates for nomination for Representative, the Oregon Voter
said concerning Mr. Notson:
"8. E, Notson of Heppner has a war record and a record in oOice and in politics that
makes him a formidable contender. His war record consists not only in the contribution
of two patriotic sons, one of whom enlisted before a state of war was declared and the
other Immediately thereafter, but In his capable energy In war work. What Xntson did
In war drives will hot be forgotten by those who were associated with him. He was on
the job dav and night, with Industry and fervor, and showed capacity tor leadership.
IF ELECTED, HE WOULD PROVE EFFECTIVE IN CONGRESS."
