satisfactory choice for this position durlnitho
the very Important session of the Leglslatunabout

After consulting with many men of allfactions
factions of the party I am thoroughly convinced
vinced that Assemblyman Janice W Wadsworth

candidate for Speaker and that If the Assembly
bly In Its wisdom should see fit tp choosehim
him a such he would discharge the dutleiof
of the position with Impartiality dignity andability

I fully appreciate the position of the eldermemberll
member of tho Assembly who have servedur
far longer than I and who feel entitled underrdinary
ordinary circumstance to recognition Andnlthout
without going Into details I realize that onlythe
the exigencies of the situation make It possible
ble or even permissible for mo to announoamyiulf
myiulf as a candidateIn
In general my views ai to the situationIn
In the State today are the same as thosehold
hold by thousands and thousands of ourcitizens
citizens The problems which will confront
front the coming Legislature are of tremendous
mendous Importance and the people aredemanding
demanding that those problems be solvedand
and solved correctly In other words that theLegislature

neil known that the Governor Is very desirousof
of having the romlng Legislature acquit Itselfth
