A Statement to the Democratic
Voters of Macon County
I believe lln- people are entitled to know how
;i candidate stands. I. therefore, make the tol
lowini;' statement to the Democratic voters ol
Macon ( omit v :
1. It" nominated and elected as Macon County
representative. 1 will yo to Raleigh as the rep
resentative ol' all the people of this county, and
will work for what 1 believe to lie to the best
interests of the state and the county.
2. I am now and have been in business for
myself since March, 1946. I am not in any way
connected with any other enterprise. If nom
inated and elected, I will to the bast of my
ability, represent all of the people of Macon
County without favoritism or preference for
any individual, faction, group, corporation, or
3. Honesty compels me to say frankly that
there are many things I might wish to do
\vhich I cannot. Such matters as highways,
schools, old age assistance, and control of al
coholic beverages are. generally speaking,
state-wide, and policies on these matters arc
determined not hv one, but by a majority of
the members of the General Assembly. I can
and do promise, however, to work for better
secondary roads throughout the state. I can
and do promise to ilo all in my power for bct
tci" schools, in this and every county ill the
state. I ca.ii and do promise to cast my vote for
a more liberal allowance for old age assistance.
And 1 can and do promise to work for the pro
posed referendum on alcoholics ? the people
have a right tp decide.
4. 1 am told that questions have been raised
about my record at the draft board. That rec
ord is no secret. I was under the draft age in
World War 1. Xever did I ask the draft board
lor so much as a day's deferment in World
War 2. I was classified as,l-A for a long pe
riod, and expected and was prepared to go to
the armed forces. The only reason I did not
was that the top age was lowered within a
month of the time I would have been drafted,
and I was classified as over-age.
?\ Whatever the outcome of the Democratic
primarv ,,May 25. I will exert every effort to
secure the election of everv nominee of the
Democratic party in the general election.

This store's reputation has been built upon
the Quality of its plants and seeds.
Today it is hard to find the highest quality,
but we refuse tc lower our standards.
So if we haven't the variety and quantity
you expect, it is because of the shortage of
Quality plants and seeds.
What you do find here will be the same high
Quality as always.
