Under your present Democratic administration, trained by experience in bringing order out of the Hoover-Turner chaos, Iowa has moved forward. i We propose to continue moving forward. No more looking back like Lot's wife on the shambles that marked the end of Republican misrule. lowans do not want what the Republican party offers: Bread lines filled with discouraged, rebellious people. Farmers coming home broke after selling their crops. Wage earners insecure in their jobs. Worried depositors gathered before closed banks. Farm and town families evicted from their homes for debts. IThe Democratic party, already proven by an outstanding record of public service and accomplished pledges, proposes to continue this record: Decent jobs for the needy rather than a dole. A strong and stable banking structure. Credit to business and home owners at a fair interest rate. A human program to protect the aged, the young and the weak.

For instance: Hon. Joseph T. Robinson (Democrat) the later Senator from Ark. "In my twenty-five years In Washington, no man has come into the Senate who shows more ability and promise than Gillette of Iowa." Hon. Wm. Green, President American Federation of Labor— "The record or Senator Gillette is 100 per cent for organized labor." Hon. James A. Farley, Postmaster General— "He is an able and sincere public servant. I'm 100 per cent for his return to the United State Senate." Hon. William Borah, Postmaster General— "If I were a resident of Iowa, I'd walk to Iowa to vote for Senator Gillette." A Soldier in France (1919) writes in his Diary— "Every man in the outfit votes our Captain Gillette a Prince Guy." Hon. Jos. C. O'Mahoney (Democrat) Senator from Wyoming— "I venture the prediction that Senator Gillette's efforts in the marketing studies of farm products will be one of the most valuable things done for farmers of the middle west." Hon. Hiram Johnson (Republican) Senator from California— "Senator Gillette has won the admiration and respect of his colleagues. He is truly a great Senator." Edward Keating, Editor of Official Railroad Brotherhood Publns. "Senator Gillette carries the endorsement of all standard railroad organizations. The defeat of Gillette would be a national calamity." Senator Gillette, we think, represents the ideals that all parties of this middle-west have been striving to secure f«.»r a generation. Iowa needs his services. , . AVe ask your personal assistance until after election to return him iv, the Senate. Sincerely yours, GILLETTE FOR SENATE CLUB Cherokee, Iowa.
