Mr. McGee paid Bpeclal tribute to
the ex-progressive candidate, praising
him highly for his achievements as
governor of California. The country
needs a dominant, unselfish leader, a
true American to lead In the pending
economic and social crisis, is Mr. Mc
Oee's contention. Mr. Johnson's rec
ord In California and the support af
forded him by his organization in that
state were alluded to as proof that he
is an Ideal candidate for president.
The speaker referred briefly to the
other presidential candidates, making
laudatory comment concerning the
person attributes of each, but coming
to the conclusion that none of these
were fitted for the "highest position of
honor offered by these United States."
The speaker's remarks elicited fre
quent applause there being repeated
reference to "our sovereign constitu
