How deep is your conviction that this government ought to be in new hanos, in
clean hands ?
How much are you in favor of a clean slate from Wilson and Marshall clear down
the line to the very smallest offices in your locality?
" The Democratic National Committee has every reason to believe that every pro
gressive voter is willing to spend a dollar to elect Wilson and Marshall and their ticket
And that thousands are anxious to contribute to the Wilson Campaign Fund in
amounts of $2, $5, $10 and $20.
To such we make our appeal. To such we must look for victory.
Time An Important Factor
This is another case where time is money.
The enemy have their funds supplied instantly by
We have only a few days and contributions to be effec
tive must be received at once.
There is no question of the money of the People being
able to defeat the money of the Trusts.
Because it is greater even in volume and will be used in
Straightforward telling ways.
But to be effective it roust be received and used within
the next few days.
Quick action is absolutely necessary. Let us have your
contribution or the list you make up from your friends and
co-workers today if possible, tomorrow sure.
How Your Money Will Be Spent
Wood row Wilson, our standard bearer, kas never had
the time or disposition to talk about himself.
He has never used spectacular methods to place himself
in the spotlight.
His greatest work has been done without ostentation, in
the most expeditious, dignified manner.
The great mass of voters do not know what a really
great man Wilson is. They do not know all he has done.
They do not understand all the features of his platform.
We must tell them.
To educate this great nation of voters, especially the
clear thinking Independent Democrats, Republicans and
Progressives who choose their leader on his merits, means
the expenditure of a vast amount of money.
We propose to use your dollars in just this way
judiciously, and without a penny frittered away for an un
We know you have confidence we will do this thing and
Why the Dollar Counts
In this campaign the issues lie between the forces of
Representative Government and Popular Government.
In Representative Government only a part of the people
have influence those with no political faith, who spend
fortunes in any direction where their own ends are fur
thered for money.
In Popular Government all the people have influence,
because their executives and legislators do not dare to
thwart the expressed will of the people.
Representative Government, as ever, this year is being
supported by the money of the Interests. It is being spent
lavishly to give the voters a wrong impression of Wilson.
Popular Government, this year, to win, must depend on the
truth being told about Wilson. We must publish his record
and platform broadcast so that no one can controvert it.
Your tl, your 12, your 15, your $10 or $20 will count and
ount to win if SDent in this work.
