Jr., of Winder. Ga., turns to his handsome, gray-haired falh- er, Chief Justice Richnrd TC. Russell, any day atlcr June; 24 next and say:;. "Well, uoveinor—" the senior iiK-mbrr or the Russell family very likely will turn right .hack and ask, "Well. EOicrnor, what is il?" For Richard. Jr.—only 3S years old—on June 24 is going !o become governor of Georgia mid Ihc yoiini:- cst, governor in t^c United Slu'.es. Ills own father, Chief Justice Uus- «•!! of the Georgia supreme cosiri. will administer llic oath of ollicc nf thft inauguration ceremonies. Young Governor-elect Hu^ell. who was elected last urtober. Isas other distinctions, lie is a baehc- k; He is one of 13 sons and daii'jh- i^s of a family whose forcbeur; ftve lived \vllhin the boundaries f Georgia since colonial limrs. He clt the University of (J^oigia to n]isl dining the World War. nade his Ilrst political campaign riving fro~m house to house in u econd-hand automobile. On assuming the olfice of chief xccutlve he gives ui> the post of peakcr nf the Georgia Ifousc? of leprcsentalivcs. He served as ncakcr for three years. ' Ills I'luns as Governor Some insight into the personally of ihis unusual young man may gained from the fact, that he ios stated publicly he believes «ov- •rnment should be simplified. Speaking of the work of a special cgtMativ? committeo of the Genral A?S!nebly not long ago he p'.tt lis views thus: "The machinery of government .hould bu so simple (,hat the hum- jlcst. citizen can understand it. Here Georgia we have more than 100 liffcrent agencic-s to carry on the .talc's business and I venture to ay there are very few who can stl iown with- pen and paper nnd lame them all and outline the du- .ies each is supiwscd to perform. "Co-ordinate and combine the Jepartinenis of state to n mini- um," he urges, "and thus give the |;lc of the state the economical ciienimenl Georgia today so bid!;' leeds." It is doubtful if his own insm- uraiicn will make so glamorous an •npressicn on Richard Ri'.sscll. Jr.'s nirrt as did a visit to Atlanta when was nine. On that occasion Mns- er Richard arrived as Ihc guest oi Sovernor and Mrs. Joseph B. Tcr ell. intimate friends of his father mrt mother.

After lie armistice he began practicing iw at Winder. In 1921 he was elected to rep- esenl Barrow county in the state :gislalurc and he lias served in he House of Representatives con- inuously ever since. During two :rms he was speaker pro tern, and ir three more lie was speaker. He as never been defeated in an cite- on. When young Russell began his rst campaign for the legislature e hired a second-hand aulonio- !c and visited every family in is county. Judge Russell, one of corgia's o!dcst and most succoss- il campaigners, gave his son hole-hearicd sunnon, but did not :tcmpt to rui his son's campaign. 4 One of 14 Children H;:=.
