Vote for Judge Parks for re-election County Judge. He is a winner.
We have tried Parks and know him to he our friend. The poorest man isi
McCurtain County gets the same consideration in Judge Parks' court as the law-
yer. doctor, real estate man or banker, in fact all things equal, we arc favored.
\^e can go into his office in our overalls and he knows lis, in fact he is one of
our class. He does not plav society, therefore he will not get that vote, he w ill be
elected by the laboring class.
You always find him in his office, ready and willing to transact business, vou
do not have to hire a lawyer in order to go into Parks" court to transact business.
We hope that every farmer in McCurtain County will take his wife with him and
go to the polls Tuesday and vote to keep our friend in office for two more years.
