CONGRESSMAN ADDISON T. SMITH
Congressman Smith has actively supported ALL the govern
ment's war plans.
Congressman Smith has consistently sustained the president
in ALL of his Vecommendations for emergency legislation and
ample appropriations for the conduct of the
If the voters of Idaho want to MAKE SURE of electing a
Congressman who will SUSTAIN THE PRESIDENT, why not
vote for one who HAS done so, IN EVERY INSTANCE.
Congressman Smith has specialized on the enactment of leg
islation for the benefit of settlers on the public land and has sev
eral laws of this character to his credit.
Congressman Smith has been active in support of prohibition
legislation, woman's suffrage, rural credits, the fixing of a price
for wheat, which will encourage ample production and give the
farmers a fair profit.
Congressman Smith is the author of a bill which has attract
ed the attention of the leaders of both branches of Congress and
is strongly recommended by Secretary Lane for enactment next
session, to provide farms for returning soldiers on reclaimed arid,
swamp and cut-over lands, under the provision of which soldiers
and sailors will have the preference right of emplovment and
Congressman Smith has advocated legislation to regulate
the price of farm machinery, vehicles, harness and other commod
ities farmers have to buy.
Congressman Smith initiated and carried to a successful con
clusion legislation providing for the Government to take over the
King Hill Irrigation Project, for which $000,000 was appropriat
ed, saving to the settlers their homes and earnings of years. A
bill which he introduced over a year ago has been made*the basis
of a systematic plan, strongly endorsed by the Administration, to
encourage private capital to invest in irrigation bonds where the
projects are constructed by the Reclamation Service, under which
the Pruneau, North Side-Minidoka, Fort Hall and other proposed
irrigation projects will he constructed.
Congressman Smith's prompt and intelligent attention to the
requests of constituents has attracted to him a large personal fol
lowing regardless of politics, who are interested in his re-election.
What REASON is there for replacing a man who
has proven his usefulness and worthiness with
who is unknown, untried, and whose political affilia
tion and belief is a matter of conjecture ?
