4 Monday, October 16,1944 gf>c ga*er*ffett CaKfarnfant POLITICAL ADVBRTIIT.MKNT Mr. J. W. TRAVERS, 326 Lucard Street, Taft, California, Native Son and Pioneer Newspaperman, says: "I am a registered Democrat and actively supported Roosevelt in 1932, 1936 and in 1940. I am joining the stampede of Democrats to DEWEY-BRICKER HOUSER to recover our beloved America from Sidney Hillman and the OPA crackpots. We'll put California on the Dewey Bandwagon in November!" Thank you, Mr. Travel's. You express the sentiments of Democrats everywhere who resent the selling-out of their party to woulel-hc dictators and pressure groups.

Warren, 44 State Senators, Assemblymen Back Houser Governor E.-irl Wart-en, 13 state senators and 29 assemblymen, both Democrats and Republicans, Joined yesterday in urging the election of Lleutennnt-Governor Fred Houser as United States senalor. His election as a man who knows the problems of California, Ihey stated, is imperative in this year of crisis. "As the nation looks forward to a victorious peace, but with complex problems linked to thai peace," said Senator Bradford Crlttendon of Stockton, "the state of California must have in the Senate the conscientious and intelligent representation to which it is entitled." "We are anxious to get Call- fornlans in the cabinet, in Congress, and in high executive positions, who are conversant with the problems pertaining to this slale," added Crittendon. "Now men who know relatively nothing of our agriculture, our industries, our Central Valley Project and other problems are handling our affairs. The election of Fred Houser as United States senator will give us the representation we need." The 15 senators endorsing Mr. If sometimes you can't get Smith Bros. Cough Drops, don't be peeved at us.

SMITH WDE You'll cruise in half-million dollar Mainliners P ICTURE giant four-engine United Mainliners winging majestically over the (famous Main Line Airway at speeds up to five miles per minute! A postwar dream? Not at all! History was made recently when United Air Lines signed contracts with the Douglas Aircraft Company for fifty of these half-million dollar Mainliners—a $23,000,000 fleet of the finest planes in the world. Just imagine! California to New York in only 8M hours... or flying from Denver lo Chicago in a scant 3 hours ... eighty minutes between San Francisco and Los Angeles... the entire length of the Pacific Coast between lunch and dinner! The DC»4 United Mainliner will carry 44 passengers in new spacious comfort at 240 miles per hour—a "four-mile-a-minute" transport! While the DC-6, the even larger 56-passengcr sky giant, will cruise at 300 miles per hour—a "fivc-inile-a- minute" transport! Both the DC-4 and DC-6 Mainliners will he equipped for daytime as well as overnight sleeper plane service. The first of Unitcd's great four-engine Mainliners are scheduled lo go into service along the Main Line Airway next year. Supplementing these giant transports will be United's popular 21-passenger, twin-engine Mainliners. There will he many new inter-city and coast-to-coast schedules providing finer, faster service for air travelers, mail, air express and air freight. Supplying the public with the highest type of service has always been the policy of United Air Lines. This $25,000,000 contract for "half •million dollar" planes demonstrates that United will offer greater speed, more flights, finer planes and the last word in service aloft on the Main Line Airway—coast to coast, the route that goes where business is.

Old Age Pensioners Elect New Officers Three resolutions were adopted and officers for the new year were elected by delegates to the Old Age Pensioners Club convention which closed Its three-day session in Bakersfield over the week end. The first resolution passed by the Old Age Pensioners urged that a law be passed by the Legislature permitting those eligible for pensions to apply for them 60 days prior to the time they reach the pension age. This was designed to save the 00-day investigation delay encountered by applicants for the aid. As the law stands, the petilioner for aid must have passed his sixty-fifth birthday anniversary. The second resolution passed was an endorsement of Proposition No. 11 lo appear on Ihe November ballot. This proposition calls for a pension of $60 for every person of (iO years who meets certain residential requirements. The final resolution was a denunciation o'f Proposition No. 12, which will also appear on the November ballot. Labeling the proposal a vicious blow at labor organizations, the convention went on record as opposed to its passage. J. H. Walsh of Contra Costa county was again elected president of the slale organization and John W. Ross, Jr. of Sacramenlo was re- lained as secrelary-treasuver. Strobel Will Speak on Proposition 12 Tonight The farmers' viewpoint of the "right to work" amendment, proposition 12, will be heard at 10 o'clock tonight on Station KPMC, when H. L. Strobel of Salinas speaks on Ihe amendment. "Opposition to proposition 12 is apparently unwilling to face the simple facts of the measure and has resorted to a campaign of misrepresentation in an effort to confuse the public," Strobel said. "The simple fact of proposition 12 is that it will return individual freedom of choice to California workers. Every voter should read Ihe measure for himself and make up his own mind," Strobel concluded.

Ceilings on Tires Continued to Dec. 15* Temporary retail ceiling prices for new off-the-road tires made witn- rayon fabric, previously established for the period August 10, 1944, to October 15, 1944, will be continued in effect until December 15, 1944, the Fresno district OPA office announced today. Ceilings for these tires, which are used principally on road construction equipment,, are 112 '£ per cent of the already established maximum prices for the same type, size and ply new tires made with cotton fabric. Dollar-and-cents ceilings for colon fabric tires are listed In maximum price regulation No. 528. OPA pointed out that manufacturers already have been granted permission to continue until December 15,, 1944, to use temporary price increases on these tires, as well as on other types of tires which previously also had been scheduled to end October 15, 1944. The price agency said that the question of maximum prices for off- the-road tires made with rayon fabric is part of the general problem relating to the level of maximum prices for all sales of civilian replacement tires.
