Men I: announced for this office a few months ago I did so feeling that I
^gWas qualified by training and experience to represent you in the Legislature.
1SL my t0 S° to the Legislature for two principal reasons: First, be-
rause I am interested in politics and in good government as all good Texans
!n«twd+be‘ ft?, : WlH give me an opportunity to serve the people of my
TpintCt^ld-the »tate- a wllole- Six generations of my people have lived'in
t • g a pe.nod of more than 100 years. They have engaged in busi-
hSr and in g°rrnment service- 1 consider it a privilege and an
carry ou.the work so nobly begun and well done by your and
^ tL/t carvin§ out of a vast wilderness this great State of ours.

resided near McGregor. I have continued to live in this county since then
except for a few years spent in Limestone and Falls counties.
. tlie ag® °f 12 1 began making my own way helping support my mother and
two smaU brothers. I educated myself by working on the farm, in oil fields
teaching school and by waiting on tables and washing dishes while in college,
o Af™r attending tIle local scbools I went to the State Teachers College at
San Marcos and later to the University of Texas where I graduated reveivin-
a degress in the school of business administration and in the school of Law *
I practiced law until soon after the beginning of the war when I closed
my office, and being above the age for active military service, I entered war
^government work- 1 worked for a while at the Bluebonnet Ordnance plant
at McGregor, then as a special agent for the Federal Government doing investi-
gation work for the Department of Agriculture. Later I was an enforcement
attorney for the Office of Price Administration. This work was completed the
first of 1947 at which time I opened my law office in Waco, but have been
spending most of my time operating a farm in Spring Valley near Waco.
I believe in our American way of life, our system of free enterprise, but free
for the small and weak as well as for the large and strong, and free for labor
as weil as for capital and management. I shaU support legislation to guarantee
this freedom Many other measures I shall support, among them being better
schools and better paid teachers, removing the limit on the amount of 'money
to be spent for the old people, better farm-to-market roads, more support for
soil conservation work and a soldier’s bonus. v
I will greatly appreciate your vote and active support and I pledge vou
my best as your representative in the Legislature. n ag j u

Another battle that occjupies
a prominent 'place in the history
of the natiori occured on June 25,
1876, when five companies of
the regiment of Lieutenant-Col-
onel George A. Custer was sur-
rounded near the Big Horn by
Sioux Indians under Sitting Bull.
Not a man lived to tell the story
of the disaster and the only liv-
ing thing that remained Avas the
horse of one of the captains.
Another anniversary occurs on
June 26th, 1917, which is the date
of the landing of a small body of
troops in France during the first
World War. These were the first
troops which had ever left the
United States to engage in a
foreign Avar on the Continent of
Europe. They preceded the mil-
lions of men who made up the
American Expeditionary Force
and gave to the French people
and the French government tan-
gible guarantee of the good faith
of this country. Their reception
Avas enthusiastic and their effect
upon French morale considerable.
During the first World War,
on the 6th of June, 1918, occured
the famous counter-attack of the
American Second Divison, Avith
its Marine Brigade, which stop-
ped the German offensi\re at
Chateau Thierry. This check to
the enemy Avas folloAved by the
beginning of an advance along
the entire Allied line. It is con-
sidered a special contribution to
the saA'ing of Paris and the ter-
mination of the first World
Nearly 24 years later, in the
Pacific Ocean, on June 5. 1942
occured the Battle of MidAvay.
This American victory stopped
the Japanese effort to advance
accross the ocean, adequately
defended American positions
from possible enemy attack and
inflicted severe losses upon the
ambitious and optimistic Japan-
ese. The battle Avas largely one
of carrier-based aircraft.
While the enemy succeeded in
making some bombing attacks
upon American shore positions,
American navel planes, in return,
inflicted heavy losses, sinking
several carriers and delivering a
bloAv which thereafter severely
limited Japanese offensive plans.
Authorities say the Battle of Mid-
way can be considered the first
decisive check of the , Japanese
offensive in the Pacific.
Nearly two years later, to the
day, on -Tune 6, 1944, in the
early hours of the morning,

why "Sfeppinq Vom "
IS SO IMPORTANT TO YOU
Hudson amazes motor-car world by
using vital "step-down" zone—not
available in any other car—to bring
you riding qualities and safety beyond
/ anything known before!
Word’s going ’round—and fast, too—
that Hudson gives you a “sweet” smooth,
safe ride that is a new high in motor-car
Perhaps you’ve heard pleased and proud
Hudson owners talking about this ex-
citing new experience, but here’s some-
thing you may have missed hearing:
The key to this amazing new ride lies
in that area just under the floor of the
average car, which in the New Hudson
becomes the “step-down” zone—as illus-
trated in the sketches at the right.
This "step-down” zone is all-important,
because experience has shown that the
lower to the ground a car can be built,
the better it will handle, the more sta-
bility it will have, the safer it will be,
and thus the more enjoyable and com-
fortable will be your ride.
Hudson, and Hudson alone, has accom-
plished a near miracle of low-built
streamlining and smooth, safe, comfort-
able riding with a new type of base
frame which surrounds the passenger
compartment, and thus permits the floor
to be lowered down within it. Recessing
the floor creates the “step-down” zone
and a center of gravity that is the loioest
in any American stock car—yet road
clearance is ample!
That’s why Hudson has a hug:-the-road
way of going, even in cross-winds, and
on every conceivable kind of highway.
When you see how this car takes even
the sharpest curves, it will spoil you for
any other type of automobile! You sense
this delightful conformity to the road
the minute you begin your ride; and this
stability, plus the protection of riding
encircled by a sturdy box-section steel
frame, gives you a grand feeling of safe
Sitting in this car is as downright satis-
fying as stretching out in your favorite
easy chair. You ride on seats that are
lowered and cradled ahead of the rear
wheels and, even with its low silhouette,
this breathtakingly beautiful motor car
gives you more head room than any
other mass-produced ear built today!
Hudson’s use of the vital “step-doA*m” '
zone in its exclusive, all steel Monobilt
body-and-frame* is a development that
required years of engineering work, the
perfection of new production techniques,
and millions of dollars in highly spe-
cialized new plant investment. Perhaps
this explains why Hudson alone offers
this new design principle today.
The nearest Hudson dealer has-a booklet
—yours for the asking—which explains
how “stepping down” brings you advan-
tages beyond anything known before!

OTHER CARS—Here you can see that any car
with floor on top of the frame, as shown above,
fails to utilize that all-important space between
frame members (heretofore wasted by placing
floor on top of the frame). This results in a
high center of gravity, and either a high roof
line or insufficient head room.
NEW HUDSON—Here the important space be-
tween frame members, shown above, becomes
the “step-down” zone—a highly useful addition
to interior passenger roominess that creates a
new, lower center of gravity, which in turn per-
mits greater safety, improved roadability and
ride, a low, streamlined silhouette.
