Government from machine control.and return ft to the people. I nm cnunlly confident Uia(j the people are'with me. in this campaign, and I will go on to victory. . ; In this final hour, when the victory to which we look forward Is within our grasp. I ask that all ot my friends go to the polls and Vole and help swell my majority!' I pledge you that aflcr I nm elected I will be subservient only'to,the; voice of the people of Arkansas, and f will always' bear In mind that I am the servant, nnd not the ruler, of lhc people of iny state.

I pledge to the voters thai Ihe will of the people will be my guide In such matter.*, and there will lie no Deputy Governors. When I if,is first suggested as a candidate for Governor there was'much doubt In my mind as to whether or not I would actually announce. However, after I bad an opportunity lo visit a Ifirgo number of comities and contact the leading business men, farmers and laborers and ascertain their views regarding the lype of man they wanted for Governor, I decided lo run. I believe that the people of this state have faith In my ability to give them constructive leadership,- and I have full confidence that they are with me and we will be victorious.; At tills llnio I want to lake Hie opportunity to thank the good people of this state who are cooperating with me to the end that good government will triumph and that the people will fule. I have earnestly tried to see everyone but the difficulties of transportation and other obstacles have<made this humanly Impossible. I hope that this statement will in some, measure serve to give you sn Idea of where I stand. . . : ,j'v i#l Very Sincerely (Signed) BEN LANEY
