United States Senator Carroll S.
Page of Vermont has sent the Caledonian-Record
the following special
appeal to all Republicans to rally to
the support of the national and state
tickets at the election next Tuesday.
Senator Page says:
To the Voters of Vermont:
Arc you planning to be at the
Polls on Tuesday, Nov. 2? On that
day there certainly will be the most
"solemn referendum" ever held by
the American people since the days
No election in the memorv of men
now living has meant so much or was
o fraught with far reaching results
as the one that now confronts us.
A Republican President, a Republi
can House, a Republican Senate back
ed by a Republican Party as the re
mit of this election would mcke the
business world and men who have
'astened their faith to our old Consti
tution as the sheet anchor of our lib
erties, feel that that great experiment
if government of the neonle. bv the
ocople, for the people had received a
new lease of life.
Vermont is always Republican.

The War is over but the mightv re
sults of that struggle are not. No
nan can appreciate the awful, sense-
ess waste the country has suffered
'iy reason of the wronir-headed, un
Susiness like conduct of the present
idministration. Money has been leav

Preparations, more elaborate than
ever before attempted, are being per
fected by the Caledonian-Record to
give the people of Northeastern Ver
mont the latest and, most complete
returns of the presidential election
which will bo held on Tuesday, Nov.
2. The bicrirest sincle feature on the
extensive program of information
now under wav is the use of the

the Caledonian-Kccord and will be
in the service of this newspaper all
of the morning of Wednesday, Nov
ember 3, carrying the news of the
election to many of the cities and
towns in this section of the state. In
short, Pilot Robinson is to act in the
capacity of a modern "Paul Revere"
and carry to the people of Vermont
the returns of the greatest political
contest of years to decide who shall
be at the helm of our national gov
ernment during the next four years.
It has always been the policy ot the
Cfiledonian-Rernrd sn far an

to have the services of Aviator Rob-:
