Next Tuesday is a Fateful Day
Volume I. ROBBINS, ILLINOIS, SATURDAY, APRIL 18, 1953 Number 12
Make Last Pleas
The six-cornered tug of war will soon be over and every one
will be relieved but not satisfied. The average voter has been very
patient and courteous to the various candidates and workers who
have been consistently knocking on doors for the last month or
so; and for this they are to be complimented. The Peoples Party
and its candidates have tried to"
open the eyes of the public dur
ing this campaign with true
facts and figures. We have
shown that we are the only
Party in this race that is not
involved in the present admin
istration scandals; we have also
shown that we are in the best
position at the present time to
do the best for the village.
We hope the public have not
forgotten four years ago when
the present mayor took an air
plane over Robbins, dropped a
few dollar bills, and excited
everyone and won that election, j
Sounds ‘silly, doesn’t it? Well,
he won. And now you can see j
that the village LOST. He had !
nothing to offer then, and he
has less to offer now. So, what i
do you think his allied parties
have to offer? Can anyone
truthfully deny that EVERY
PARTY in the field originated
under and was first controlled
by Tohn S. Richardson except
the PEOPLES PARTY? That
is why the big split is between
them.
This village will not prosper
or make any advancement until
the ENTIRE administration is
changed; and it CAN ONLY
BE CHANGED NOW by
electing PEOPLES PARTY
candidates for village officials.
So vote Tuesday for these
men: Theodore Hendricks for
President; James Barnes, Clerk;
O’Dell Anderson, Oscar Wil
son, Raymond J. Burt, for trus
tees and Fletcher Tillman for
Police Magistrate.
Vote a PEOPLES PARTY
ticket straight — and you will,
NOT LOSE!

TO THE CITIZENS OF
ROBBINS
The Women of Robbins
have spoken! O Women,
wake up and let us march
forward with the modern
times. Let us band ourselves
together and demand better
village government for our
children—for the future!
Your home needs you; your
church needs you and your
village needs you. So let us
get together with the women
and make our community
better.
We are the backbone of
our men. They have failed
us. Now is the time to get
with the Women's Party and
help make a town we can be
proud of. Are you not sick
of the mud, water and filth
in our town? Are you not
tired of the darkness in this
town? Are you not tired of
looking at the old broken
down, dilapidated buildings
which we call our Village
Hall? And last, but not the
least, don't you want your
children to be protected from
the pack of dogs that roam
over our village every day?
Do we know when they may
go mad from hunger—but not
lack of water—for water be
cause there is too much ol
that around.
Don't you want to be look
ed upon as people rather
than have people look down
on you when you say you
live in Robbins?
I am asking all of the good
citizens to link their forces
with the ours and let's march
on to victory. In unity there
is sarength, — together we
stand, divided we fall. If we
are to succeed in this world
MRS. ELINOR WHITE NEELEY
the hard-hitting campaigner of the
Women's Party, who will speak at
a rally for her Party at| the Horace
Mann School, Sunday, April 19th
we must roll up iur sleeves
and get to work. Common
sense is seeing things as they
are and doing things as they
should be done. No race is
ever won until a start has
been made. So let us not
give up.
Let every citizen vote for
the outstanding civic-minded
women and the Women's
Party ticket, so we can be
proud of our town. Will see
you at the polls.
BEATRICE WILLIAMS
• We have been asked not
to reveal the result of the
Straw poll. The argument is
that it might make a last
minute switch by people who
are interested only in getting
on the band wagon.
