to seriously consider, but to insist that
only the best from every view point be
selected. A great wrong has been
committed against us. See to it that
men are chosen'for these positions, who
will not repeat this wrong. Because
of the serious charges and convictions
against our congressmen, and of the
approaching election, we are being ob
served very closely by all our sister
states, and the men whom we select in
our April primaries and our June elec
tions for seats in the upper and lower
house of Congress and also for our
legislative body, but especially our
Congressmen and Senators, will be
scrutinized more closely than ever be
fore. Our honor, intelligence, integ
rity and good judgment will be judged
and gauged largely by the men we
send to the National Capital and it be
hooves us to act wisely at this time.
For the love of our state, of our peo
ple, our homes and ourselves, do not
let anyone dazzle your eyes or obscure
your vision by postal card pledges,
circular letters or printed appeals.
Let us study the history of the past
for the purpose of wisely directing our
acts in the present and future and se
