"The poiit u-al situation In our Ktate
proniiseb to bt very interesting and both
prtrtn;s have their quarrels on hand to
berm with. The conservatives and the
pr iwresilV'-s have entered into a warm
'nieM and all factions axe lining up
;r.dr forces for the coming election. W
HP' all hop'ful of a democratic victory
and the prospects are indeed bright but
it ii very early to make predictions for
It niav be almost impossible to tll how
:fv election will go uniH after the votes
d.r.- counted H' wever the democrats are
well liii' d up. and they will at least make
Lhe contest warm.
A n um her of t he conservatives and
La Kollette advocates are strong for Wii-
Kori uid unless they have changed since
1 left Milwaukee will support him for the
nomination However Harmon is really
me strongest "f all the possible .candi-
dates. Harmon for president with Under-
wood for vice president 1 the most popu-
lar ticket ana Is the .ticket that I am
supporting. With Harmon as our can-
didate for president and lTndenrood for
vi'-e president. It is my opinion that we
will have a Mtrngth to our campaign that
B:i rot he defeated. Huch a team of men
can not help but be victorious.
"Harnvn is the strongest man In the
race Hi Is the real man for the demo-
cratic p-ir;y to support and the bast
comparison that I can think of lust at
this time is to compare him with the
grat seawall at UaWeston. This mighty
barrier protects the city against the
Ftnrrns of the sea and the destruction of
th hlfch stormy billows bo Harmon Is
