keeps in touch with workers through
out the district. A great deal of cor
respondence is had with towushii
committeerneii and voters generally.
The judge says he has yet to learn of a
republican who is not in line for the
party. Ho hears of no defection fron
the ranks. On the other hand ho gets
many letters iuwhich numerous instances
are cited of former f usionists who wil
this year support McCarthy. Many of
these last year voted the other way ,
when the republicans carried this dis
trict by a majority of 1,1)00. )
As the campaign draws to a close
public meetings are being held in largo
numbers , especially in the interests o
