The Upper Des Homes-Republican, October 15, 1930 REPUBLICANS MEET AT FORT DODGE Caravan Touring State Conferred with District Leaders Thursday. "BIG SHOTS" OP Gk O. P. PEESENT. Dickinson Heads Party and Makes the Main Address. Many from Kossuth County Attend. (By J. A. Freeh.) A caravan composed of the republican state committee and all the candidates of the republican party for state and district offices held their Tenth District conference preparatory to the fall campaign at Fort Dodge last Thursday evening. It was much the largest meeting held In any of the districts and was the grand culminating event which covered the whole state and of the caravan tour which Is rather a new thing in state campaign:!. Candidates present included L. J. Dickinson, candidate for the United States senate, P. C. Gilchrist, candidate for congress in the big Tenth to succeed Mr. Dickinson; Dan Turner, candidate for governor; Kelly Greenwalt, candidate for secretary of state; Mark Thornburg, secretary of agriculture, and candidate for re-election; Lieutenant Governor Arch McFarlane of Waterloo, National Committeeman. Charlie Rawson and Mrs. McClure and other candidates on the state ticket. Kossuth county was represented by Senator George W. Patterson, Representative Julius Jenson, County Chairman Ray McWhorter of Hurt, J. A. Freeh, R. E. Moulds, Hugh Raney, Postmaster and Mrs. S. J. Backus, Edith Budlong and Col. and Mrs. A. M. Petersen of Tltonka and County Treasurer H. N. Kruse. The roll of the fourteen counties was called and all responded through their chairman or substitutes on the conditions of the party in their county. County Chairman McWhorter did not arrive in time for the roll call and J. A. Freeh and Postmistress Mayme L. Petersen of Tltonka were called on to report for Kossuth. These chairman all reported that the organization was In fine fettle In each county and that the outlook was good for a great republican victory in November. There was the largest representation of women ever present in a conference of this kind. The conference through the state chairman paid a very pretty compliment to Mrs. J. P. Dolllver and said that no republican convention held In Fort Dodge or this district could be properly held without including In its deliberations something commemorative of the late Senator Dolliver and she was asked to rise and the conference rose and applauded her vigorously. All the candidates made speeches and in the writer's opinion they were all outstanding and each Invoked a great deal of enthusiasm, cheers and applause. Dan Turner made a splendid speech which was perhaps the most grave and serious, calling on all to support him in economy in state administration and in the enactment of a state income tax law that was to be a replacement tax In place of the property tax. Senator F. C. Gilchrist made a speech which will be long remembered for its splendid historic review which he used to illustrate the principles he stood for as a candidate for congress and reminded them that while we were in some economic distress that all the other countries of the world were in much worse condition than we are, mentioning Russia, China, India and several South American republics. The speech of Congressman Dickinson was saved for the last of all and he showed splendid ability to please his audience and was very enthusiastically received and applauded. He called attention to the many great sons and daughters of the Great Tenth dls- trist and said that he was once asked why the Tenth district sometimes had more than their share of the state officers and he said that when people wanted red apples they went to the places where red apples grew and that it was on account of the ability, honesty and steadfastness of the sons and daughters of the Tenth district that ,hey wer« called upon to fill places of eadership In the affairs of the state and nation. Dick was in his usual ;ood natured vein and that the district loved and honored him was plainly shown by the applause of his address and the reception and greeting he re- relelved after the close of the meet- ng. Algona and Kossuth county have real reason to be proud of their illus- ;rlous son's reception at the largest district conference ever held in the Tenth district. All the speakers praised President Hoover and asked that all stand loyally by him in his efforts to improve conditions and there was great applause at every mention of the president's name.
