Willkie today are engaged in a determined drive to roll up a big majority for him in every local precinct, hoping thereby to contribute to his election as president of the United States. The tempo of the local drive was accelerated Monday night at the First Avenue School Auditorium when local Willkie volunteer workers held a rally and heard several speakers describe the engaging personality of the popular Republican candidate for president and the strategy of the constructive campaign he is waging on his whilrwind trip across the country. Dr. Edward Carol Sibley, we',* known author and lecturer, was the main speaker at the Monday night rally. He emphasized the fact that the present campaign for president is a non-partisan “crusade” in the support of the political philosophy that in 153 years has made the United States economically, under its constitutional government, the greatest nation on earth. He outlined the advantages of the many liberties that Americans enjoy and which are not available to the people of any other nation. He declared that there is no room in this campaign for personalities because the issues are so sharply delineated. Dr. Sibley admonished all those who want to see Mr. Willkie win to work “constructively” toward this end. He pointed out that the future welfare of the country and its citizens depends upon America's ability to halt its obvious trend toward the totalitarianism of a centralized government and return as quickly as possible to the fundamentals of individual liberty. The way to this goal was described as requiring the leadership of a dynamic and understanding successful businessman capable of solving our domestic and. economic problems .by the increased production of an expanded industry, which will absorb into profitable William Humphries, 21 E Orange employment all those able to work j Grive avenue: Plans for extensive Directors Electrical Association Meet At County Fair Directors of the Pacific Coast Electrical Association meeting to day at Pomona announced plans for increased activity within the association to keep pace with the x’apid advancement of business throughout the coast area, The association. representing BUSINESS SECTION PLANS DINNER In the absence of Ray M Dick- more than 3000 members of var- ! ¡nson. president, who is honey-ious branches of the electrica] mooning following his recent industry, has a strong member-1 marriage, Gordon St Eberly pre- ship here: sided over the regular Chamber Building activity has put new of Commerce meeting Monday and greater demands on all night, branches of the electrical busi- With many regrets, the resig- ness. according to C E Houston, nation from the board of direc- president of the association and tors of Sam L Gillette, who has assistant manager of the South- moved to Utah, where he expects ern California Edison Company: to remain for the next year or The industry, likewise, has gear- two, was accepted.
