Jim Cook is tneemployee who NESBITT ANNOUNCES FOR U.S. SENATE handles the water system. Mr. Ralston Daily who was recently elected to the BoardotTrus-tees is the member in charge of the overall operation, and Mr. Daily along with Mr. Cook have spent long hours recently during the change-over period.

Let 41s think on these' things, luarnitted by �Carl Swans on Sud Statement by Charles Nesbitt Today I announce my candidacy for the democratic nomination for the U.S.-Senate in 1972. For almost a year I have crisscrossed ,the state, talking to working people and business leaders, teachers and farmers, political leaders and industria-. lists'. I wanted the thoughtful and honest opinions of a good cross section of all Oklahomans. Believe it or not, the people still decide who their senator will be. The response has been gratifying. And the high quality of those who have offered, their help, shows me that I can win. Today, I have an organization formed and active in every, county., Initial campaign financ-. ing is arranged. J am deadly serious, and I expect-to win. I intend to offer the people of Oklah ma a choice. That I will be a conservative candidate cannot be disputed. My convictions are alien to'the ultra- liberal philosophy which has brought tliis nation to the brink of bankruptcy. There isn't a dine's worth at difference between the two members of Congress who are" now in; the race. Their voting, records are almost identical. Both have always embraced the: spendthrift philosophy that has sapped a grea't nation's strength tor over a generation. Both have backed every hand-out program, every government giveaway, at home or abroad. It is time for a change, it is time for responsible leadership-sane leadership. That is what I offer. Neither my face nor my philosophy is new. -I have spent many years'serving Oklahoma, as Attorney General and as Chairman of the Corporation Commission. I am intensely proud of my record.
