Candidates, even with modern facilities of mass communication, still prefer to meet voters personally, according to many of the comments received by the Medford League of Women Voters following Thursday night's candidates fair. Mrs. Alice Rutter, the League's voter service committee chairman who handled arrangements for the event, said Saturday many of the candidates expressed appreciation for the opportunity of meeting the voters personally. Many of the candidates, she said, commented that they acknowledged the possibilities of reaching thousands of people through television, radio and the newspapers, but still felt there is no substitute for meeting the voters personally. Offer Opportunity The candidates fairs - there were three in three nights last week - offer this oppor tunity to all candidates, Mrs Rutter noted. The Grants Pass League sponsored a fair there Wednesday night, the Medford fair was Thursday night, and candidates for na tional and state offices attend ed a similar fair in Eugene Friday night. Mrs. Rutter said the Medford League considered the fair, which was held at Hcd- rick Junior High school, a success, and expressed appre-elation to organizations which assisted the League in staging the program and coffee session in the cafeteria. The estimated 800 attend ing the fair heard Congressman Charles O. Porter, who is seeking reelection, and his Republican opponent, Dr. Edwin H. Durno, Medford, de bate the question of the role of a congressman in foreign affairs. Another Highlight Another highlight of the fair was the discussion of talks with Russia between Mrs. Maurine Neuberger, Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate, and Ex-Gov. Elmo Smith, Republican candidate for the Senate. Candidates for state representative from Jackson county and all county office candidates also attended the fair. In many cases it was the first time many of the candidates from either of the major political parties had met on a common stage. Following the program in the gymnasium in which each candidates was given a ' certain number of minutes in which to present his qualifications and in some cases his policies, candidates were given space in the cafeteria where they could meet voters personally. While coffee was being served by members of the Medford 20-30 Active club, candidates discussed Issues, argued points and talked with voters to clarify stands or policies. 3pTs till Mra.
