OFFICIAL RECORD ONLY
RECORD THAT COUNTS.
There is just one safe way to “check up’’ on a Senator
or Congressman—examine the Congressional Record.
The Record Shows

A matter of patriotism was involved in every one of
these measures and in every instance Senator Gore voted
for his country.
It is true that Senator Gore voted against the draft
law but so did Champ Clark and many other patriots who
believed the volunteer system best. No question of patriot-

on this issue. It was denied.
