Against "The March of the Iron Battalions of Sovietism"
Men change, principles are immutable!
If a man should arise preaching a cult
of atheism calling it Christianity, we
would protest and protect the religion
of our fathers with our lives if need be.
Names are but symbols by which things
Names like brands ma be changed!

He is standing ' 'irrevocably' 1 on the
Shawnee platform and that platform

"We have the governor;
"We have the election machinery;
"We HAVE THE MILITIA."
This is the hour for action by genuine democrats. Shall
we slumber, as the "bore from within" movement origina
tors believe we will?
Or shall we shake off the menace of state socialism that
hangs over us NOW? It must be done some time. This is
Our party leaders by the score have pointed out the danger.
This is no bolting movement!

It is his open and "irrevocable" stand on the Shawnee
platform calling for state owned bank, state owned mills,
elevators, warehouses and the "LIKE," coupled with a

The members of the Constitutional Democratic clubs of
the state believe in the teachings of Jefferson, Jackson and

72,481 Democrats Will Vote For
There are more than three hundred constitutional democratic clubs in Oklahoma, repre
senting each of the seventy-seven counties in the state.
There are today 72,481 constitutional government loving men and women-,of the demo
cratic faith who have agreed to vote for John Fields.
The Shawnee convention candidate and the men who are supporting him in an effort to
take control of Oklahoma for d program of state socialism have seen the moving finger write
upon the wall: , .
''Mene Mene tekel uphnrsin."
"Thou hast been weighed in the balance and found wanting!"
John Fields is an American citizen, He is an honorable and Christian gentleman. He rep

481 democrats have expressed a preference for him to a man who stands upon a platform
