No women. . Young Mr. Fulbriglil could novcr be tlic| Senator for our Service men and He could never sit at the council tables of the American Legion, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, or any oilier groat veterans organization which will wield a potent influence in America's future. Sir. J'ulbrfghl forfeited this privilege w hen, at tho age of 36 and with the age for service 21 to -15, he TURNED HIS BACK ON THE ARMY and ran for Congress shortly after Pearl Harbor while action ou his draft papers was being delayed by a transfer from one board to another. Young Mr, Fulbrigbt added further insult to our 140,000 men risking their lives in thundering war in Normandy, Italy and New Guinea — , HE TURNED HIS BACK AGAIN! HE REFUSED 10 COMMIT HIMSELF AND DID NOT VOTE ~ on one of the greatest pieces of Soldier Legislation in History! Before the vote was taken on the G. 1. Bill of liights, the American Legion sought his altitude. The Legion's Legislative Director in Washington telephoned, telegraphed and wrote, but all Hie Legion got from Fulbrigl.t was silence-* silence that said NO! He was marked on the Legion poll as "Non-Committal" and with a negative sign. When the roll was called, when (he peacetime welfare and security of our Arkansas fighting men and gallant women were at stake, Pulbrighl was given his ONE CHANCE in Congress (o do something for them . But No. J. W. Fulbright was ABSENT AND NOT VOTING .. . non-committal and negative, absent and not voting. Mr. Fulbright has thus repudiated tho Armmy and the men nnd women in it. Have the Voters Misunderstood— or been cleverly but deliberately misled? —Tlie "rumors" that Mr. Fillbright has so glibly brushed aside now become glaring facts . . . facts no true red blooded American can ignore. The swell of righteous indignation at this double-dealing will engulf the. congressman-candidate at the polls August 8th. The People of Arkansas Are Going to Repudiate Such Conduct— for themselves and the service men and women, they aro ' going to choose a soldier- Senator, a senator who went to war when his nation called, who answered the call lo duly of his flag, a senator who served 26 months in World War I, 12 months in France; a senator who is a member of two great service organizations and who sits at their council tables, whose first concern is the welfare of the men and women of our military forces.
