"BOB" COOK FOR GOVERNOR OR ELSE-The Bailey-Blackwood-Duty Crowd History repeats itself! THE BLACKWOOD bttncli, with its unsavory political record of not KO long u'sro, is again snilVing around the State Houss doors. But they've' donned a new face, so that you'd scarcely know them. With reams and i-c<inis of highly cot- ore;! "publicity" as bait, they' have lured and pushed and wheedled and pulled their star performer Bailey right lip-into the front row, while they hide behind and shout "B for BAILEY" but whisper -"BET on BLACKWOOD!" Such maneuvering . . . such camouflage smells to high heaven and is an insult lo the taxpayers whoso homes and incomes are mortgaged for years and ^ears to come with the staggering State debt amounting: to ON'K HUNDRED A N D SIXTY-THREE MILLIONS OP UOLLAIIS placed there by the same BLACKWOOD crowd now behind Bailey. An indignant, thoroughly aroused public from one boundary of the State to the other is determined that— f 'They Shall Not Pass!" It's the same old story! The old familiar crowd of "onts" trying 'to go,t "in" again! And the worried, heavily assessed crowd of "ins" trying to stave off the inevitable "out"! That's why there's but one real issue in this campaign . . . it's elect R. A. (Bob) COOK or the BAILEY - BLACKWOOD-DUTY crowd will be back in the saddle for another spending spree lo put another "money-millstone" around the necks of our heavily burdened people. Remember . . . Judge COOK is neither an "in" nor an "out" . . . he is neither for nor against any group, cli(|iie or faction KXCEPT the machine politicians. lie has no political henchmen ... he has made no promises and is not ruled or run by any private corporations or political cliques. He owes his success ... he owes his allegiance alone to the PEOPLE. For SAFETY'S sake, it's just plain, comiivfn sense to elect Boh Cook as Governor, nothing less will do! Judge Cook through his BUSINESS ntlmin- istraUon of Pulaski county converted Its 5222,500.00 DEFICIT into n cash SURPLUS of $211,000.00 in three depression years and .secured a * 50% REDUCTION IN COUNTY TAX KATE It Is reasonable to assume he CAN- ami WILL- make similar savings in our State Government when lie is elected our next Governor! Judge Cook has pledged lo put flie Slate Farm on n paying basis or serve as your Governor without pay until the Farm hns made sufficient profit over and above expenses to pay liis salary. This is the same pledge he made to Pulaski county about its Farm . . . and he made good his prom' isc! Judge Cook has pledged PAVED HIGHWAYS lo cilies and towns on main arteries that have so far been denied the road development made In other sections of lhe state. Judge Cook is running on his record of accomplishment . . . not just political promises. Save The State From The Politicians Your Vote For BOB COOK Is the Only Way! JUDGE R. A.
