Since the beginning of Dave Terry's campaign . tour for governor, state-owned ears have been shadowing him daily. Obvious markings on these cars make it certain beyond a reasonable doubt that they are slate-owned cars. "".In view of the fact that patriotic citizens and taxpayers are restricted in the use of gas and in most cases cannot get .n^w tires—Dave Terry, charges that this mjs^ise of state-owned cars, gasoline and rubber is jiot only a deplorable waste of the taxpayers' money, but an outright unpatriotic act against our.war effort! DAVE TERRY Is Taking His Campaign To Free and Independent Voters Dave Terry has a strong faith in the free and independent voter. .When elected governor, Dave Terry assures each and every voter that tax money and state property will be used in the state's business for which it was intended and not mis-used and wasted to further selfish, political gains. With our boys fighting for freedom of the polls, Dave iTerry urges every free man to assert himself r independently.
