To the People of the
District of Texas
It is with a deep sense of grati-
tuded that I again announce my
candidacy for re-election to Con-
gress from the First Congressional
District of Texas. You haye been
exceednigly kind to me in the past
for which I am grateful. I have
been devoting every effort to re-
pay you for your kindness, your
trust, and your confidence, by en-
deavoring to render the very best
services it was possible for me to
render. All of my time and efforts
have been devoted to that end.
Returning to Congress consecu-
tively is not only a traditional in-
terest of our state, but our legisla-
tive processes make experience and
seniority necessary to prestige,
power and National leadership.
The President, our Commander-
Chief, in this crisis must have the
unqualified support of Congress in
prosecuting the war to an early
and satisfactory conclusion. Much
legislation will be necessary and I
feel that I can be of essential ser-
vie to our District, our State and j
our Country in the position I am
Patriotism in a great emergency
subn erges politics, and yet, poli-
tics is necessary because a Democ-
racy cannot function without the
people electing Representatives to
serve them. Politics means the
masses controlling and the masses
cannot control without elections.
Therefore it is necessary for the
people to interest hemselves in
politics even in time of war. How-
ever, we are all more interested in
Victory, which must be paramount
to everything, for without it, all is
In this emergency, it is the duty
of everyone to serve in the place
and in the capacity where his ser-
vices are most urgent 1 know that
the difference between Victory and
defeat is the difference between
slavery and poverty under the
Axis Powers and freedom and
plenty under the L’nited Nations.
It is my hope that you will con-
sider my record in the past to be
constructive and helpful and suffi-
cient to justify my re-election.
Your vote and influence arc so-
licited and will be very much ap-
