neighbors and our friends vote also We have been careless in recent years about voting and this neglect has been a strong contributing factor in allowingthis Country of ours to get into the mess we find it today Our administration in Washington is a misadministration of bungling quarreling and indecision we are surrounded by the confusion of Babylon witness the WallaceTrumanByrnes inci dent President Truman put his foot into the sticky fly paper when he gave Wallaces speech the green light He has been twisting and turning ever since to extricate himself As a blunder er he is a huge success Did he learn such politics from his spon sor Tom Pendergast There is a 275 BILLION DOLLAR Government debt The next fiscal budget for operation of our Federal Government is set at 43 BILLION DOLLARS There are still three and onehalf million government employees in the various bureaus of our Federal Governmenta year after the war is over at least half of these are parasites and we the taxpayers are supporting them The housewife cannot get a washing machine or cleaner the farmer cannot even buy a bang board for his husking wagon I was in a market yesterday to buy some fresh meat not a bit to be had I bought a bunch of carrots and went home So it goes all down the line Would you have believed that any kind of leadership could have brought this country of abundance to such a mess of economic pottage Planned Economy they call it We are being regulated on everything we earn eat wear or use need or desire This country did pretty well for the first hundred and fifty years under the good old law of supply and demand It built up the most powerful nation in the world with out bureaucratic dictatorship There is still nothing wrong with the resources of America It is you and I and the rest of the voters who have the power to vote these screwball bureaucrats out of office Mr Voter be at the polls on November 5th and vote a pro test with the millions of voters who are fed up with wartime regulations in peace time no more 40 BILLION DOLLAR annual budgets no more top heavy government payrolls nor continued excessive taxes for wasteful government expenditures Letp vote against regimented scarcity and high cost of common necessities We want to be able to truthfully say we still live in The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave SEE YOU AT THE POLLS NOVEMBER 5th C

walkout by 400000 soft coal miners The result conceivably could be an out for Secretary of the In terior Krug who so far has in sisted the contract is binding for as long as the government oper ates the mines John L Lewis the UMW chief tain interprets the terms to per mit termination of the contract unless Krug agrees to meet him next Friday for a discussion of higher wages The miners tradi tional policy is no contract no work and next Friday is not only on the edge of winter but just four days away from the congressional elections Attorney General Tom C Clark assigned Acting Solicitor General George Washington to examine the agreement Krug and Lewis signed last May 29 to end a 59day work stoppage Clark said the jus tice department wanted to be ready with an opinion on which is or asked A finding In favor of Lewis could furnish Krug with a good reason for cutting short his cur rent vestern trip now scheduled to continue until Nov days after the Lewis deadline Krug said three
