His record in Congress and one term in the United States Senate is so well
known to the people of Nebraska that comment here is unnecessary. He has a record
of doing things, and while it has not always been possible for him to get just exactly
what he wanted, he has certainly done all in his power to advance the material interests
of the people of Nebraska.
The State has never had a representative in the National Congress who has ac
complished more, nor attained a higher standing in the councils of the nation. He is
probably entitled to more credit for the passage of the Postal Savings Bank law and the
extension of rural free delivery tnan any other man in Congress. The positions he has
attained to upon important Senate Committees, especially on the appropriation Commit
tee, is an asset to the State that can be attained only by experience and length of faith
ful service, something that a new man would not reach except by the same strenuous
route traveled by Senator Burkett in his long years of service.
Nebraska can hold her own and come to the important place she deserves in national
affairs only by retaining her tried and true representatives. Every voter should remem
ber this, and under the Primary System it devolves upon each individual voter to go to
the polls and see that we lose no advantage already gained through the efficient service
of our senior senator.
YOU OWE AS A CITIZEN. The old veterans appreciating the service rendered by
Senator Burkett have made a platform for him specifying some of the things he has al
ready achieved and shows something of his ability to accomplish what he undertakes.
The Senator stands squarely on the Platform of the Republican party, which is
progressive in every particular, and insists always that lines must be sanely drawn, but
be in keeping with new ideas and necessities. He is in the prime of life, clean morally
and politically, honest and able, a hardworking, painstaking and faithful public servant,
and deserves the support of every true Nebraskan.

down to a mass of denials.
Chairman Iturke of the investigat

that Vice President Sherman would

that Mr. Sherman could throw any
light on the investigation.

In the contracts might be available

"It was just this way I was down

improperly in regard to the McMur

and went to Washington. I got hold
of Creager and said. "Look here, you
know I never said any such thing.'
"Then Creager said: 'Now Jake,
that certainly was the impression I
got that you suggested I might get
an interest in the contracts.' I replied.
"You certainly are mistaken. Then
Creager said: 'Well, if you said I
shouldn't. I won't go before that in

me.' "
