FRIDAY, MAT 28, IMS ^^—^^ Jennings To SeekSeatln Lower House Maricopa Attorney Candidate For One Of Representatives In announcing his candidacy for Congressman on the Democratic ticket. Rent L. Jennings, of Phoenix, stated: "I wfll be a candidate for the office of Representative in Congress in the Democratic Primary September & 1942. My complete platform will be announced later. I invite your suggestions now as to what you want in that platform, and your comments and criticisms on the ideas set forth in this announcement. At this moment America is exerting a supreme effort to unify* all her people, utilize all her resources, and cooperate 100% with all her allies, for offensive action to defeat the Axis Powers. Peace time campaign platforms, setting forth planks which appeal especially to designated classes of people, are out of order. Every American to- no matter what his occupa- THE CASA GRANDE DISPATCH social or political affiliation, day. tion, -. . wants most of all to win this war. Profits as usual must be rejected. The stranglehold of production and patent monopolies must be broken. War necessitates 24 hours a day. seven days a week production, full use of ships and railroads for war transportation, full use 61 man and woman power, witii equal pay for equal work. No quibbling over income must be allowed to interfere with war production. Most Americans have never seen a hundred dollar bll] and never will, and heartily approve an income limit considerably below $25,«X) a year. Most Americans, in fact, are thinking: "Profits be damned! America must produce to win!" These sentiments ought to be echoed in Congress.

He has resided in Arizona for the past years where he attended thi schools and received his education. thirty local college ing unity for war production. The President and bis administration are right in rejecting the recent smear pnmpatgf against labor and tracing its origin to the propaganda bureaus of Berlin. Any renewal of such a campaign to repeal progressive labor and social legislation should be vigorously opposed as destructive of Che democratic way of life and disruptive to both production and morale. There must be no anti-labor legislation and no pick handle government in Am- icrica. Agricultural production • in Arizona must be increased, industrial production speeded, and new industries encouraged by maximum development of the Colorado River, combining irrigation with power and establishing lower power rates through cooperative distribution. A system'of rapid transportation by highway and rail developed in Arizona through the aid of the Federal Government, thus speeding military movements and transportation of war materials in • this state of ever-increasing military importance. Farmers must be insured cost of production. OH Age Pensiona A minimum federal pension of at least $60.00 must be guaranteed to all persons over 60. Youth, upon whom the old depend, must be free for war work. When thousands of people still receive incomes over $25,000 a year, there is no excuse for not permitting the aged to spend their last days in security. A gross Income tax on incomes over (3000 will finance the plan, releasing for military service thousands of young men now kept at home for no other reason than the fact that they have aged dependents to support. Ww Vetenns Disabled veterans of previous wars «a well as the civilian blind, maimed, unemployed or needy, are entitled to such adjustment in their incomes as the cost of living necea- RBNZI* JBNNINGfe sitates. No argument against such humane justice is valid as long as I Incomes over $25,000 still exist; no legislative freezing of wages is valid at any figure below that set for incomes from other sources. Wages are earned by the sweat of a man's own brow and should be the last source of income to be cut., While the immediate aim of this program is to win. the war, "the | only way voters can judge the sain- ' ctity of a' candidate's program is' by his past public record. I am no new convert to democracy. My i stand against fascism of all brands,' native and foreign, has long been a matter of'public record. I invite inspection of my public record as evidence of my faith in democracy and the sanctity of my campaign pledges." Democracy At Home , The surest way of establishing or restoring democracy hi other part of the world is to maintain it it home. Democracy to me means security and happiness for the aged, generous care for the maimed and the blind; the right to work for an who are able; the right of working people to associate themselves In economic or political organizations ual enterprise, and the protection without fear; the right of cooperative enterprise as well as individ- of both from monopoly. .Democracy is not static, but to live must forever develop and expand into new fields as methds of production bring changes in the relationships of one man to another, one group to another. Through cooperative enterprise, labor and farm organizations, and progressive laws encouraging the development of all democratic activity, -democracy expands from the political field into the economic, and continues to be continuous, steady progress toward a living, vital force. Wjthout this economic democracy, political democracy cannot long survive." STUDENT SONG WRITER "Two years ago when I apnoun- ced my candidacy for State iTreas- urer," said Mr. Hunt, "I made only one promise to the voters of Arizona. JThat promise was that I would always strive to dp my very best to retain the votes of confidence they give me. With that thought in mind I have conscientiously! administered the duties of my office." "This" year, I again make but one promise to the voters of this state.

Under newly liberalized rationing rules it is easier than most people think to replace .cars now in use with brand-new, long-lived , gas-thrifty 1942 Buicks. Maybe you can wash out worries about tire-life by starting afresh with a complete new set— tires that will bat longer, if they're on a Buick, because new Broadrim wheels both ease the ride and lengthen tire-life. Remember, the 1942 models your Buick dealer now has ready for immediate delivery were built to serve you through the duration and beyond. They are wartime tough, durable beau- ties built to last, built to go a long, long way with a minimum of upkeep. So if you're eligible, you may be i ahead getting a new Buick now rather than trying to make an old car "do." Why not drop in, talk it over and see if the new liberalized rules do not entitle you to a new automobile now? Better Buy Buick! Royal Howe Motors Gasa Grande Phone 141
