HAUGEN STILL UNDECIDED
Announce Later Ilia Position
Regarding the Kenstor-shly.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, la., Aug. 21. (Special.)
Congressman G. N. Haugen of the Fourth
district, Is not now a candidate for the
United States senate, but he Is considering
the matter and may later announce himself.
In an authorized statement given out to
day at Northwood, la., his home, he says
thut he has heen urged to become a can
didate by many persons over the state, and
allowed it to be known that he is consider
ing the matter. His statement is as fol
lows: A large number of friends and public
men over the slate have urged me to muku
the raco for tlie I'nlted States senate, both
by correspondence and ",n person. This,
coming from so many friends In all fac
tions of tho party, la complimentary and
gratifying, and. of course, there is no use
denying the fact that if tills exalted posi
tion and high honor could be realized, it
would be a Inudable ambition '3 anplre for
It. It is a position that few. if any. would
turn down, but before definitely deciding
a question of such Importance, I want to
look into the matter raremily and consult
mv friends fully. As yet It has not been
determined how this matter shall be dis
posed of, and until then no definite conclu
sion can be reached.
Congressman Haugen denies having been
