Oct. 29 (Special) -Only nine of the candidates now campaigning for seats in the United states, senate rare served in that for longer than one term. Only three of these nine have served more than two terms. The senate, once the stronghold of "elder statesmen," is becoming more and more a oneterm body.

The "old timers," and any senator who has served more than six years is now so regarded, who are up for re-election as Borah, who has served three terms, Sommons of North Carolina, who has served four terms; Warren of Wyoming, who has served five terms, and Norris, Fernald, Ransdell, Robinson, Sheppard and Walsh of Montana who have all served two terms.
