Five candidates ran for the Republican nomination for Congress in n special election brought on by the death of Rep, Henry M. Kimball. Among them was Verner W. Main. o Battle Creek lawyer, a churchman, and a dry, rather well known in the district, and with some church and dry support in addition to his avowed Townsendite following. All four opponents came out for "workable old- age pensions," but Main was the only strnijjht Townsend candidate. Wins Sweeping Victory Claiming 5000 Townsend club members in the district, Townsend himself came on to join Main in a.speak- ing tour, to stump the district, and assure complete delivery of the Townsend vote. Result: Main polled more votes than all fpur.of his opponents together. Credit for his overwhelming victory was given by Main to the influence of Townsend and the plan chief's activities in the campaign, rather than to his own personal popularity. The special election is December 17, when Main will run against the unopposed Democratic nominee, Howard W. Cavnnaugh. This district has elected Republican congressmen for 40 years. Cavnnaugh's only hope, of course, is thnt the Townsend candidate will have split the Republican vote so badly as to let Cavanagh in. That is a fair cross-section of the new Townsend policy—a policy of demanding of candidates a pre-pledge on n single issue, "turning on the heat" in one district after another as needed. It is very old and time-tested American political tactics, brought to finest flower by Wheeler in the days when he wns wielding the Anti-Saloon League bludgeon. Legion Grows Rapidly The Townsend movement is spreading with great rapidity. No one knows exactly how niany local clubs there are. Franji Pyer, Townsend Legipix head, estimates between 4000 and 5000. Dr. Townsend recently 'estimated GOOO. In addition, Dyer's Legion now has more than 10,000 members, he estimates, and 100.000 in his aim. This is n sort of independent organization functioning in behalf of the plan, and with the same officers as the Town- r ;cnd organi/al'nn. Legion members pay 5' a month due;;, whereas ordinary club member:; pay as low as 10 cents a month, or no dues at all if they can't afford it. Dyer's Legion organization plans to enter broadcasting on a national scale in behalf of the plan this winter. The 5000-odd Townsend clubs are widely distributed nationally, Dyer claims', though the South is the weuk- c.st spot at present. There are some 200 paid employes of the organization, Townsend estimates, including or- ganisers who work on a commission basis. Rcil Past Million Minimum membership for a Townsend club is 100. If there are 5000 clubs, that is a rock-bottom minimum ! of a half-million members. But clubs range in size up to the parent group in Los Angeles, which lias 18,000 members. So nobody knows just how many active Townsend club members there are—probably more than a million. Dr. Townsend estimates between two and three million. All these paid a 25-cent fee to join, but Townsend told a Detroit audience that not 5 per cent of them now pay regular dues. The organization has collected and disbursed about $600,000, he said. R. E. Clements, the 40-year-old former real estate operator, who is the "spark plug" of the oganization, is also touring the country, speaking and organizing with Dyer and Townsend himself. Clements is urging a strong lobbying campaign on present congressmen, and agrees with Towrl- send that "nothing on earth can stop us now." Ignores Party Lines The Townsend congressional campaign, like that of the Anti^-Saloon League, disregards the present parties. Republican or Democrat, Socialist, Communist, Farmer-Labor, or Epic; it IK all the same if the candidate pledges himself to vote Townsend: No presidential candidate has been selected, as none has as yet come out for the plan. But Townsend eyes naturally gravitate to William E. Borah of Idaho. Borah has never declared . himself definitely for the plan, but is sympathetic, has never condemned it, and there is no doubt that the Townsend leaders look on Borah as "our man," anrf that "his heart is right." Borah, of course, was always the idol of the Anti-Saloon League, and, thore is a close coincidence between the' Townsend membership and the former iupporters of the dry cause. Wayhe Wheeler is regarded by some of the Townsend leaders as the idol pclitician. And Borah is not unconscious of the fact that Idaho is a strong Townsend state. ! Tile union between the Townsend followers and Father Coughlin's National Union for Social Justice is not an airtight one. there is little in common between the two causes except opposition to Roosevelt. It is more than: -possible, however, that in the cases of specific candidates JUjSpecific congressional district, the two. might join force. .

The direct- driven Ford V-8 ignition starts the car quickly, even on sub-zero mornings .,. . And most important of all, a new Ford V-8 needs no tedious "breaking in." The cylinder walls of its V^8 engine are honed to such a mirror-like finish before the car ever leaves the factory that you can drive it 60 miles an hour the day you get it, if you want to. And this year, because the 1936 Ford V-8 came out earlier, you make a triple saving- by buying this fall: You can get a bigger Allowance on your old car now than you will get n£xt spring ,., You can drive your new Ford V-8 extra months this winter and it will still b0 worth just as much next year as if you hV$ waited to buy it until spring . . , And you csh avoid all the winter conditioning costs (for battery, tires, brakes, winter lubricants and engine tune-up) that you would otherwise have to pay on your old car.
