ISE OF STEAM HOLLER
Fred H. Dominick or' Newberry candidate
for congress from the third
co/gressional district, is in the city
today and was asked about the
"steam roller" that his political j
friends had running so smoothly in j
his county convention in Newberry, i
"It was nothing but a determined
effort of the part of my friends to see
that I should not be discredited in my
race for congress," he said. "Two
years ago I was kept out of the convention
and the fact was used asainst
me by my opponents in the third district.
'My friends were determined it
should not happen again. There was
no personal feeling in the convention,
Jut my friends and I will represent.
Newberry in the State convention."?
