As for the November general
election, Mrs. Huff will support Mr.
Roosevelt and Henry A. Wallace
although she states that she
screamed herself hoarse at the
Democratic convention trying to
beat Wallace for vice president.
"I ain not a bolting Democrat,"
said Mrs. Huff. “I am a belly-
aching Democrat. I make my dis-
likes known but I stay with the
Mrs. Huff refused to state what
action she will take when the
legislature considers appropriations
for her political enemy, Mrs. Mabel
Bassett, state commissioner of
charities and corrections. She ran
against Mrs. Bassett in 1938.
"I stll have a Republican to beat
at the November election," she
said, "although my district is
four to one Democratic." *
Mrs. Huff said she wil concen-
trate her energy at reforming
state orphanage laws. She said she
hoped to pass a law requiring that
all youngsters be examined at a
state clinic before they are sent to

Mrs. Huff said she also will spon-

said they also should be asked to

Mrs. Huff, if she defeats Charles
E Day, her Republican opponent,
will be the fifth woman to serve in

been one woman senator in state
"I will be the first woman ever
