The local Republican Democratic
parties through their state chairmen
have named their committees and
aides to assist in conducting the
campaign. But as usual no colored
man or woman Is named on either ot
the committee«. Maybe the LaFol-
lette state chairman will rerognlse
and appreciate the colored vote in
Oregon to the extent ot naming on
his campaign committee some worthy
colored man or women, knowing, as
all three parties must know, that the
colored vote in Oregon is now the
balance ot power In any election In
this state as well as national.
