Gravely, Rocky Mount democrat, de
clared in Mantel that the people
would demand a third term for Mr.
Roosevelt. “A great federal admin
istration, directed by a magnificent
leader, is cooperating in the solu

At the same time, Gravely's man

Gravely and Mr. Roosevelt “the peo

can look for consistent liberal lead

who claims Western North Carolina

from a warped imagination.”
At Raleigh U. S. Senator Claude
Pepper of Florida, told young demo

Maxwell attended a conference in

Get at Its Caose!
If constipation has you down,'so
you feel heavy, tired and dopey,
it’s time you did something about
it And something more than just
taking a physic! You should get
at the cause of the trouble.
If you eat the super-refined
food most people eat, the chances
are the difficulty is simple-you
don't get enough “bulk.” And
"bulk" doesn't mean heavy food.
It’s a kind of food that isn’t con
sumed in the body, but leaves a
soft "bulky”mass in the intestines.
If this common form of con
stipation is your trouble, eat
Kellogg’s All-Bran regularly, and
drink plenty of water. All-Bran
isn’t a medicine-it’s a crunchy,
toasted cereal. And it will help
you not only to get regular but to
keep regular. Made by Kellogg’s
