Don't get nervous because it is
campaign time and the politicians
begin to tell you things about this
candidate or that. The candidates
are just the Fame now as they were
before they were nominated. If they
were honest, upright public spirit-
ed boosters before they were nomin-
ated, they are the same yet.. A
nomination does not change a good
man. but it makes a hypocrite of
the dishones, fawning two faced Id-
niduals who chameleon-like changes
his colors to suit the complexion
of the crowd he is in. Beware ot
! the Uriah Heaps who are always
. protesting how honest and humble
! ihey are. They would stultify their
! manhood and play any sort of a
1 nefarious political game to win.
! Stick to men who are honest—men 1
; who are sincere and do not clianfce
their personal demeanor, toward
I you or try to make a public show of
their goodness because they ire can-
! didates. Stick to men who are the
same yesterday today and always.—
Roy Black and Lee Harryman
