Joe Scott Hits Hard As He Scores New Deal At Non-Partisan Rally By HARLAN WARE Wake up, Americans! That was the theme of Joseph .Scott’s hard hitting address at the San Gabriel non-partisan rally at the Monrovia, Arcadia, Duarte high school Tuesday night, Octber 8. ”A11 that our forefathers fought to give us—the two-party system, freedom of speech, the bill of rights, the ideals which helped to make us the greatest nation of free men in the world—all these are in danger if we shatter the third-term tradition in the coming election,” Mr. Scott declared. ”The cynicism of the New Deal must be overthrown in favor of a vital and dynamic and optimistic philosophy or our American way of life will suerly pass/' Cutting Red Tape. Gr. Interrupted by frequent bursts of applause, Joe Scott figuratively rolled up his sleeves and tore into the Tommy Corcorans and Benny Cohens who surround President Roosevelt. And he con« trusted Elliott IRoosevelt’s cur-' rent desk job with the war records of the sons of another Roosevelt — one of whom was killed and two of whom were wounded. He pulled no punches in’ recounting the profitable business activities of the Roosevelt family now occupying the White House and declared that "with Wendell WillKie^s election the White House will once again become what it was intended to be and what it has always been, until now: the symbol of the American home.” Arcadia B-L Association A forceful, white-haired man, long identified with the educational system in California, a welfare worker who has given much of his time to public service, Joe Scott demanded: "What do I want for myself in this campaign—at my time of life? Why, I want the Future. I want a future for my children and my grandchildren which can be compared in the freedom it offei’s, in the opportunity it may offer, to the future which my forefathers left to me.” Willkie is doggedly fighting to bring the real issues of the campaign before ‘the American people. In swift verbal brush he portrayed Mr. Willkie as the ideal American to lead the people back to the American way of life. "A mid-west small town A Home Institution boy who worked his way—worked his way with his hands and his brains—that’s Mr. Wendell Willkie. An honest, dogged fighter who believes in the American people. And he’s a man who will not surround himself with Yes-men in his cabinet but will call upon the most capable and most successful Americans he can find to lead us out of this wilderness. We need in the White House in these grave days a man who has the respect of labor and the confidence of industry. That man was called by the people: he is Wendell Willkie.” Mr. Scott scored President Roosevelt for his attemi ted "purge” of Senator Johnson. ”That man is not a liberal?” he cried. ”The people of this state know whether Senator Will help you finance Johnson is a liberal or not- they know what Hxran Johnson has done for his fellow Americans in his long, distinguished career. It was sheer effronteiy for the President of the United States to attempt to ’’purge” him; and the citizens of California gave back their answer.” While admitting that he was no prophet, Mr, Scott nevertheless was confident that Hiram Johnson would appear before the people of California in the next few weeks., prior to the election, and make clear where he stands on the third term issue. ”He knows what has happened in Washington,” Mr. Scott declared. ”Wake up, Americans!” Your old or new Home Announcement of the local draft board was made Monday «Jid includes J.
