Dewey, Repub V - 3 lican presidential nominee: t ft I THOMAS E. DEWEY Thomas E. Dewey, the Republican nominee for President, was the first native mid-westerner to become the Governor of New York. He was born in Owasso, Mich., March 24, 1902, son of a newspaper publisher who was distantly related to Admiral George Dewey, hero of the Spanish-American War. He attended the University of Michigan, where he won many honors. While in New York he met his future wife, then Miss Frances Eileen Hutt, of Sa-pulpa, Okla., who was studying music there. They were married June 16, 1928. They have two sons, Thomas Edmund Jr., and John Martin. In 1931, he was chosen as assistant to the district attorney for the southern district of New York. His reputation as a fearless, thorough lawyer became known throughout the state and in 1937 he became district attorney of New York county. His world famous drive on racketeers thrust him into national prominence as a fearless, brilliant advocate of law and order. In 1942 the people rewarded him by electing him to the New York governorship by a staggering plurality. He sought the presidential nomination in 1940 and campaigned actively for the nominee, Wendell L. Willkie. In the fearless, energetic Dewey manner he has begun a vigorous, brilliant campaign for constitutional government and the elimination of the New Deal. "Let's have no more of this pretense about indispensable men. There are no indispensable men. The peace and prosperity of America and of the world can never depend on one man." Thomas E. Dewey: "This is not merely a campaign against an individual or a political party. It is not merely a campaign to displace a tired, exhausted, quarreling and bickering administration with a fresh and vigorous administration. It is a campaign against an administration which was conceived in defeatism, which failed for eight straight years to restore our domestic economy, which has been the most wasteful, extravagant and incompetent administration in the history of the nation, and worst of all, one which has lost faith in itself and in the American people." Thomas E. Dewey, Republican nominee for President: "A change in the national administration next January will involve no change in the military leadership of the war." Of4 if ' "The Federal government has become more and more complicated. It has become bigger and bigger, and it has become harder to understand." .. , , if - ; If s Time To Change before it's too late "THIS BASIC ISSUE was clearly revealed in the recent announcement by the Director of Selective Service in Washington. He said that when Germany and Japan have been defeated it will still be necessary to demobilize the armed forces very gradually. And why? Because, he said, 'We can keep people in the Army about as cheaply as we could create e:. agency for them when they are out. "For six months we have been hearing statement.: from the New Deal underlings in Washington that this was the plan. Now it is out in the open. They have been working up to it. Because they are afraid of peace. They are afraid of a continuance of their own failures to get this country going again. They are afraid of America. "I do not share that fear. I believe that our members of the armed forces should be transported home and released at the earliest practical moment after victory. I believe that the "The tragedy of the present situation is that we have an administration seeking re-election now . , . which did absolutely nothing to prepare the American people for war , . . and made absolutely no military preparation for the events it now claims it foresaw." occupation of Germany and Japan should very soon be confined to those who voluntarily choose to remain in the Army when peace comes. I am not afraid of the future of Amei !ca either immediate or distant. I am su-e of our future, if we get a national administration which believes in our country." ' ?sas.-.
