Jail to head party ticket continued from Page 1, col. 2. Not know now this is the Best i told Debs that on March 6 i was in Milwaukee where the National executive committee the party held its sessions and knew that the committee had expressed itself for him As the candidate for president. He was also told that not another name had been mentioned so far As we were aware for the first place the ticket and that it was a certainty that when the National convention met in new York in May he would be the party a Choice. We also indicated to Debs that there was widespread feeling in the socialist movement that he would allow his name to go before the convention that act would have a tendency to Cement the differences that now exist within the socialist organization that his name would have a unifying influence upon All phases the american labor movement. There was a moments hesitancy in which Debs again looked at the documents on his knee. Then i handed him my Fountain pen the very same pen with which he wrote the last statement that he made before he entered Moundsville prison on april 13, 1919�?and with this pen he signed his name to the paper which at this moment lies on a desk before me and which As follows ill a. Cady county clerk i hereby acknowledge receipt by registered mail proof copy ballot containing my name As the Little i know current topics i am satisfied that Ever there was a time in the socialist movement when we should be a significant Factor in the political and economic life the nation that time is this year. A the socialist party should poll 3,000,000 votes next november and i shall be very much surprised though not in the least chagrined the party does not poll that number. In City and this letter was turned Over to the Warden who gave it to Debs As he sat talking to us. We were conscious that the Warden had granted a privilege by allowing the interview to take place in his private office and an Extension time was Given. The interview lasted the better part an hour and Debs himself ended it by rising from his chair. Debs had a Good color tending to Rud Diness and he said he was feeling very Well. He did appear to me to be in better condition than when i saw him in october. A. A lesson. A continued from Page 2, col. 3.
