Senator O’Dnniel as consistently combated the trend toward cen-
tralizing power in Washington and toward socializing business und in-
dustry. Yet, since Pearl Harbor—os his voting record shows—he has
stood by the President in furthering the war-effort. Doubtless he will
continue to do so—alike ns to winning the war nnd the peuce which
follows. He has been upbraided with being an “isolationist”: he is not
that, nnd he can be counted upon, when the time comes, to support
the President in his efforts to establish a peace which will endure.
On such grounds, San Antonio Express considers, Mr. O’Dnniel
should bo returned to the Senate for a full term.
Certainly, fully comparing his official service-record with that of
his opponent. Senator O’Daniel far more conspicuously has earned, and
therefore deserves, the nomination in tho run-off on August 22.
Return O’Daniel To The U. S. Senate
(Editor's note: At the request of mnny of our rural readers.
The Herald is reprinting this editorial from the San Antonio Ex-
press for a second week. The Herald takes this occasion to thank
our readers for their interest and is glad to accomodate.)
(San Antonio Express.)
As their vote in the first primary on July 25 impressively demon-
strated, the great mass of Texans desire that W. Lee O'Daniel continue
as their junior United States Senator. Out of 985,000 votes cast, the
Senator received 473,500. He led James V. Allred—who now opposes
him in the run-off—by about 153,000.
San Antonio Express does not doubt in the second primary (August
22) the voting majority will ratify the verdict which those figures
suggest. It considers they will be justified in so doing. By his record
during the year in which he has served in the late Senator Sheppard’s
unexpired term, the voters generally consider, the incumbent has proved
his desert to a full term.
Mr. O’Daniel’s almost startling declaration of individual political
independence in his first speech before the Chamber last summer—
-“I did not come to the United States Senate to be a ‘yes-man’ or a
'‘rubber stamp’ for anybody”—not only gained his constituents’ approval,
but attracted favorable notice throughout the country. He has con-
sistently followed up that stand—as in his outspoken criticism of the
Administration’s labor policy, its ineptitude in dealing with a menac-
ing strike situation that, before Pearl Harbor, gravely obstructed de-
In that regard, Senator O’Daniel did not hesitate to call a spade
a spade. He laid the blame for the dangerous anti-defense strikes at
the door of certain Congressmen and other Federal officials who,
“thinking about holding their jobs first and saving the Nation second,”
let themselves be intimidated by pressure groups. That is, they allow-
ed a comparatively few self-seeking labor bosses to block the Nation’s
By thus honestly and courageously stating the facts—as in his
Constitution Day speech at Dallas—Senator O’Daniel served the Nation
well in a critical time. On the other hand, he was then—and is now—
Senator W. Lee O’Daniel of Texas
(The Chicago Tribune.)
Senator O'Daniel, running for venomination, was top man in the
Democratic primary in Texas on July 25. A late tabulation shows that
he received almost as many votes as were cast for his two opponents
together. With 90 per cent of the hallos counted, he had received almost
400,000 against 270,000 for former Governor Allred, the New Deni
favorite, who ran second. On this showing, it is believed that Mr.
O’Daniel will have little difficulty in winning the run-off primary in
Mr. O’Daniel was against intervention before Pearl Harbor, and
that fact was made the principal issue in the campaign He was one of
the members of Congress whom the so-called Union for Democratic
Action and its New Deal and Communist allies were most determined
In pursuit of this end, former Governor Allred who had been re-
warded by the New Deal with a Federal judgeship, resigned from the
bench to make the ra^e. Mr. O’Daniel finished so far ahead of the
interventionists’ fairhaired boy that it was scarcely a race.
Before the primary, the purgers entertained high hopes of victory
in Texas. They noted with satisfaction that what they called O’Dnniel’s
“most vulnerable point” was his isolationist attitude before Pearl
Harbor. This was heavily stressed in the campaign and it accomplished
The fact is more noteworthy because Texas has made an enviable
record since Pearl Harbor in contributing men and money to the war
The purgers had allowed themselves to believe that the determina-
tion of the people of Texas to win the war was an evidence of their
will to punish any of their representatives who had opposed the Roose-
velt foreign policy before the war. The conclusion was not warranted in
Texas or in any of the other states where the test has been made.
As Mr. Henning reported the other day, in the 15 states where
primaries have been held, not a single Senator or Representative
specifically prescribed by the purgers because of isolationism has been
denied a nomination.
It would be remarkable if the results had been otherwise.
Numerous polls of public opinion taken before Pearl Harbor evi-
denced the desire of the great majority of the American people to
avoid war if possible. To hare defeated O’Daniel or any of his,
colleagues in the present primaries on the ground that they had

THE GOSSIPING POT
Keep your tongue out of the gos-
It’s sure to get scorched, the brew
is so hot:
Gossip's the meanest thing under
Not easy to stop when it has begun.
It does not soothe babies,
It will never kill rats;
It does not cure rabies,
Will not drive away cats.
Should the pot cease to boil
Just for lack of tongue oil:?
Then most welcome its fate,
I'd be pleased to relate..

The success of O’Dnniel is a vic-
tory for representative, republican
government. It is evidence that the
people of this country do not send
men to Congress to vote slavishly
according to the dictates of the ad-
ministration. It is evidence that
America offers no welcome to ono-
The outcome invites the hope that
the members of the new Congress
will not easily be cowed. They will
insist upon effective prosecution of
the war. Therein lies hope of a
speedy victory over our enemies.
Main Street-not Wall Street!
Our INTERESTS lie in Main Street!
By Main Street, we mean, of course the
farm communities, small towns, cities and
surrounding areas which make up South
and Southwest Texas.
Because Central Power and Light has no
Wall Street connections, we have no inter-
est in “sending money to Wall Street.”
Wherever possible CPL spends its money
on the Main Streets of South and South-
This money goes for fuel, supplies,
wages, taxes, and the hundred and one
items it takes to give good utility service.
, Because our employees are Texans, be-
cause about one-half of our stockholders
and all of our officers and directors are
i Texans, CPL is primarily a Texas company
.-^-serving Texas, not Wall Street.
