Six weeks from today filings for
the 106 positions in national and

nominations are concerned, and
to date but 17 names have been
recorded as .seeking these posi
tions. Many others have an
nounced their. Intentions to seek
nominations, while still others
are toying with the idea.
April 3 Is the last day for offi
cial declaration, allowing 45
days In which candidates may
campaign before the May 18 pri
mary election. This year will see
more than half ot the total ot
171 positions tilled by election.
Many Offices Open

by districts or by counties, will
vote upon three members to con
gress, governor, secretary of
state, superintendent of public
instruction, labor commissioner,
two Justices of the supreme
court, 14 of the 28 circuit Judges,
eight ot the 36 district attorneys,
15 state senators and all. 60 mem
bers ot the house of representa

time may add a few more f sl

Tbe republican party, reported
more hopeful of success this year
than during the "new deal" cam

another set-back if reports eml
noting out ot Washington through

ed. It was stated President
Roosevelt would come to the
West before the November gen
