clerical looking preacher for the mar

with pink mints were given to the

Hon. John E. Swear?ngei. Will
Be in the Race for Governor
John E. Swearingen, state superin
tendent of education, yesterday an
nounced that he would be a candidate
for governor in the Democratic primary
Mr. Swearingen is widely known over
the state, is recognized as a man of
ability and strength, and the announce
ment of his intention to enter the pri
mary will be read with interest. Some
months ago, when a meeting of the
county superintendents of education of
the state was being held, a motion was
made to the effect that the superinten
dents indorse Mr. Swearingen for gov
ernor. Mr. Swearingen would not put
the motion while he was in the chair,
but later it was stated and was acted
upon favorably with some one else pre
siding. Since that time there have been
numerous rumors to the effect that Mr.
Swearingen would throw his hat in the
ring, but while he had been asked many
times whether or not he would make
the race, he withheld a definite reply;
though his friends knew he was giving
the matter careful consideration
Several times when he was asked
whether or not he was going to run he
spoke of his interest in 'the public
schools and of the opportunity for ser
vice the office of superintendent of ed
ucation gave him.
Following is a copy of a statement
given out yesterday by Mr. Swearin
Statement From Swearingen.
"I shall be a candidate for governor
in the Democratic primary. The gov
ernorship is the highest honor in the
gift of the people. 1 invite the voters
to investigate my character and record
For 14 years the people have allowed
me to work as state superintendent of
"The modest standards that have
been introduced are under fire. The
fight for the common schools is on and
I prefer to make this fight in the open
before all the people. Despite the
progress of recent years, education is
still the chief need of the state. It is
the only cure for ignorance as well as
the best and safest remedy for poverty
"The tax system should be adjusted
and equalized so as to lighten the bur
den carried by the small farmer, the
small home owner and the small busi
ness man. The wealth of the state can
easily bear and pay the cost of honest
and economical government without
hardship on any taxpayer. Our tax
burden needs to be justly distributed,
our taxes fuljy and impartially collect
ed and our funds economically and con
"Notwithstanding business depres
sion, the ravages of the boll weevli
and the uncertainty of the outlook,
Dur people are not ready yet to close
Dur schools and colleges or to pull
iown our institutions.
About Direct Tax.
"The direct tax now burdening
visible property must be shifted so
as to tap other sources of revenue.
Second only to education and taxation
stand law-enforcement, good roads
and public health. The carnival of
crime should be checked. The in
vestment already made in good roads
should be conserved. *
"Further improvements should be
made when funds become available.
The campaign for public health should
be pressed and every public health
agency should 'be strengthened.
"Factionalism, bickering and strife
have too long hurt the state. The
governor and the legislature must
ivork together if anything worth
while is to be undertaken or accom
