The progressive party of the First
congressional district of Nebraska
has seen fit to place my name on the
progressive pariy ticket for the pri
mary election on July 18. 1922
without my solicitation. I therefore
felt it my duty to accept the nomi
nation. I now feel that it is my duty
to make a public statement of my
position on public questions at this
1. I fully approve the platform of
the progressive party adopted by the
Grand Island convention on Decern
ber 8. 1921. Standing squarely on
this platform, I have not filed as a
candidate of any other party. I am a
progressive and not a democrat.

2. Four years ago in a public ad
dress I advised and urged the labor
ing men and the farmers of my home
city and county to get together po
litically and formulate a public pol
icy, and stick together and vote lor
that policy. This is what I understand
was done by the Grand Island con
vention, which organized the progres
sive party. It is my candid opinion
that in the national congress both
the democratic and republican par
ties are absolutely dominated by the
same influence, namely Wall street
and Big Eusiness. When the demo
crats had a majority in both the
house and senate under the Wilson
administration, the republicans
charged it to be a fact; now that the
republicans have a majority in both
the house and senate under the Hard
ing administration, the democrat's
are charging it to be a fact. This
charge having been made by both
of the old parties I accept it as true

The popularity of this Vassar Garment is best
shown by the fact that more, of them are be
