q,u M ALAKOFF NEW To Support Of W. D. Justice In Demonstration Staged Friday Evening (From Athens Daily Review) That the majority of voters in Henderson county intend to stand behind the candidacy of W. 13. Justice, the county's first-announ- ced candidate for Congress, be- came evident here Friday night wh~n a crowd estimated by m~ny at 5,000 persons attended a rally held on the court house lawn in the candidate's behalf. The crowd approximated the voting strength of the county and it contained 'delegations of loyal supporters from every community. This demonstration of loyalty on the part of his home county is the third since opening of the current campaign and the second within a week. A week before more than 300 Henderson county citizens ac- companied Justice on a booster trip to Jacksonville forming a caravan so long that it brought favorable comment from the Dal- las Morning News and the Dal- las Times Herald. At the opening of his campaign more than forty ears of boosters drove to Crockett to hear him make his opening talk of the campaign, With H. C. Moseley, former representative from this county, as presiding officer, Justice was introduced to the huge crowd by two of the county's most popular young attorneys, Jack T. Life and Hobson Green. Both eulogized the candidate as "a man who can be depended upon to work hard and fight hard for the people." Life: and Green Speak. Life, the first speaker, pointed THE GREATER Athens, Texas I/ TODAY!

"The size .of this great throng", said Life, "is an indica- tion that Henderson county vot- ers plan to make their votes most effective by voting for Justice". The speaker pointed out that Jus- tice is "a man who will give the same attention to the problems and requests of the poor man that he will to those who wear silk shirts.'" Hobson Green, who followed Life to the microphone, re- called Justice's early life as a farm boy in the Pottowatomm and Old Goshen communities in this county and pointed out that he is a man "who will have the best interests of ~he farmer at heart because he came from the farm." He recalled that Justice had stud. ted law while still earning a liv- ing as a farmer, tracing the can- didate's rise from county attor- ney to "the greatest district at- torney the Third Judicial District ever had." "When Justice served the peo- ple he served them well," Green said. "His record as district at- torney was the second best in the entire state and there is every reason to believe that when he goes to Congress he will be the same hard working, h~rd fighting champion of the rights of the peo- ple." Answers Attack On Legal Profession. Answering an attack made by one candidate on the legal pro- fession, Green pointed out that the nation's great leader, Presi- dent Franklin D. Roosevelt, is a lawyer by profession. "Since a lawyer knows law and studies law he is best equipped to make laws that will help the common people," Green said. "There is no man in the present race better fit- ted by reason of hi courage and ability to cope with opposition, to represent the common people than our own W. D. Justice. In the candidacy of W. D. Justice lies the county's first opporunity in thirty-five years to send one of its own citizens to Congress." First Speech Here. Attorney Green then introduced Mr. Justcie who made his first speech of the current campaign to a Henderson county audience. After briefly recalling that Howdy Martin was the county's last citizen to go to Congress, Justice cited his "graduation from the school of hard knocks." An- swering an attack made by a cer. tain candidate who is parading about the district in the guise of being "a farmers friend," Justice said that the need of the farmer was to get someone in Congress who could be depended upon to really do something about their troubles and not rnerely talk about them in the manner of the "farmers friend" candidate, who, he alleged, was formerly in the employs of the East Texas Cham. ber of Commerce, "an organiza- tion which serves as the mouth- piece for the corporate interests of East Texas." "Every dime I have spent and will spend in this campaign will be my own," he said. Flays Attack of Corporate Interests. Justice flayed the concerted at- tack being made upon his can- didacy by various corporate in- terests, pointing out that he was the only candidate in the entire field that has made a public and wide open declaration of his stand on the public utilities bill. "Why have the other candidates dodged this issue?" I challenge anyone of them to say that he has ever even mentioned the utilities regu. lation bill." Opposes Ickes Oil Bill. "Other candidates in this race seemed determined not to let the people know how they stand on certain issues in this campaign. For instance, they won't commit themselves on the Ickes oil bill. I'll tell you here and now that I am opposed to the Ickes oil measure because it is against the best interests of the landowners and the royalty owners. I favor controlled oil production but only when the flow of duty free oil from foreign countries into this New Fair Throngs Storm Street of Villages . .I country is stopped. Put a $1.00 a barrel tariff on imported oil, stop the inflow and there will be a market and more royalty checks for our landownres," Justice said. "Make the filling station men free moral agents," he said. "Di- vorce the production and distri- bution ends of the oil business and break the back of the yoke the corporate interests now have on the necks of the people." Opposes War. The candidate, long identified for his pronouncements in behalf of the war "veterans, drew heavy applause when he said that he was opposed to any kind of war except a war of defense. 'I was the first to make a definRe pub- lic statement favoring immediate payment of the soldier's adjusted service certificates and I have, I am proud to say, the backing of some of the most active veterans in this great district. I believe Chat there is nothing too good for Streetprincipalthe world"f attractionVillageS'ln a slnglefferingfor thedaY,slghtseers,a was"turthef l I ,i the boys who ri~ked their lives, left their homes and sacrificed their opportunities in the great conflict." Citing the entrance of another county man in the current race, 5ustice said: "From March 10th until near the last day I cam- paigned this large district of twelve counties and, still have much work to do yet at the last minute a man gets into this race against me who proposed to do in a very short time what five other candidates have found it impossible to do in three months. Why he is in this race you are left to guess." Favors Vocational Agriculture. "A certain school .teacher can- didate in this race opposes voca- tional agriculture and does not even allow it to be taught in his own school," said the speaker in reiterating his stand in favor of removing restrictions from the Smith-Hughes act to permit the -- i / I I I , ,, J ,, teaching of vocational agriculture in all high schools in both large and small districts. For Universal CommrlpUon Law. Asked his views on the subject of preventing war, Justice made a public pronouncement in favor of the Universial Conscription law which would coscript factor- ies, banks and railways along with our boys. "Take the profit out of war and wars will be very few," he said. The candidate also went on rec. ord in favor of guaranteed bank deposits, higher income taxes in the upper brackets and an ad- justment of tariffs to permit a greater trade between this and foreign countries. Scores of persons went forward to pledge their aid in this cam- paign at the close of his speech. Justice left this morning for Grimes county where he is sched- uled to speak three times during the day. Mondays are "out" when you wash and iron electrically. Both you and your clothes are happy--you because an eleetric washer and an electric ironer take the backache out of this weekly job, mid your clothes because they are cleaner, whiter and more smoothlv ironed than they've ever been before. Electrical laundering not only means goodd)ye to hard work; it-means "hello" to money savings, too. Your clothes last longer because they can be washed out easily and more fre- quently; trying to get really dirty clothes and linens clean is what often wears them ont. A small down payment is your first step towards happy Mondays. That is all it takes to install an electric washer or ironer or both in your home. The rest you pay in convenient monthly amounts while you are enjoying the laundering ease the two appliances bring.
