to Avert Disaster of Radical League Control of State
John Fields' Pledge Is to
All the People of All Parties
"I pledge to you, If elected, to give
to this stnte POUR YEARS OF A
COALITION ADMINISTRATION. It
will be a different coalition from that
already accomplished by the opposition
—It will be a coalition of Republicans
and Democrats who believe in orderly
and constitutional Government and the
preservation of American ideals against
Russianizing Influences. To the giving
of that kind of administration if elect-
ed, I pledge the people of Oklahoma
every atom of strength and ability that
God has gtvon me, aiul in my efforts I
shall need the daily support of all good
citizens and the prayers of all the
Christian men and women of this state,
which has grown so great and which
now totters on the brink.
Tlio purpose of those 1;">0,731
Democrats, who in the primary
voted against the Shawnee Plat-
Yirm and control of their state
a \d party by "League" Radi-
cals, is the same as that of a
great majority of Republicans.
Those 150,751 Democrats di-
vided their strength among sev-
eral candidates while the
"League" candidate's support
of 119,501 was not divided.
Thus, in spite of a ma.ioritv of
31,250 Democrat votes against
the Socialist usurpers, the
"League" candidate won.
Because they were real Demo-
crats, the 150,751 voters who
were defeated by a minority in
their primary could not accept
the Shawnee Platform and in-
sisted upon writing a platform
which would constitute Demo-
cracy rather than Radical State
The regular Democrat Plat-
form was read at the Conven-
tion in Oklahoma City, August
15, and adopted by nearly a two
to one vote of the delegates. but
the "League" candidate re-
fused to be bound by it. lie
V od. and still stands, "irre-
i-eably for the Shawnee Plat-
I'orin"—a platform almost iden-
tical with that which brought
disaster to Nort-h Dakota where
I he sainc kind of a radical gang
stole the Republican uartv to
accomplish their endo.
"When Mr. "Walton flatly
turned down the platform sug-.
gested by a majority of Demo-
crat voters hs demonstrated
his contempt for Democracy in
its true form. That act proved
how willful and ruthless he can
be, when clothed with power or
the assumption of power. It
revealed that his real allegiance
is not to the Democratic party
and Democracy, but to Radical
"Leasrue" Socialists and So-
Once in control of State Gov-
ernment, with Victor Berger,
Osfar Ameringer, Pat Nagle
and the rest of the radicals as
the guiding hands, it will be a
sad four years for Oklahoma
and for Democracy. The disas-
ter of North Dakota is likely to
be repeated and multiolied.
Should Democrats, throusrh
mere partisan prejudice, permit
such a thing to occur, it would
be a party record almost im-
possible to live down in future
The fate of a great state
hangs in the balance, by a very
slender thread. All that stands
between it and a ruinous regime
is the possibility of electinsr a
Republican Governor in a state
where Democrats are in the ma-
jority. It is fortunate that the
Republican candidate is a man
iii whom Democrats can place
their faith, knowintr that lie
will be square and decent and
that he has pledged himself to
a coalition administration in

which there will be no uniust
persecution or no unfair advan-
But John Fields can be
clcctcd only by the support of
large numbers of those 150,751
Democrats, who voted against
Walton and the Shawnee plat-
form, in the primary. Those
good people, though differing
in political faith, are Americans
first and partisans afterward.
They will not fail in this crisis.
Hundreds of them are openly
working to elect John Fields.
Hundreds more are quietly sup-
porting him by refusing to
actively support their party
candidate. All can, and thous-
ands upon thousands will say
little, but on election day, will
vote for John Fields, firm in
the faith that they serve their
party best by so doing.
