Police Sweeney Girl Alive
Would You Disappoint Your Friends?
They Are Eagerly Watching For Your
Success .
lorn* Decisive Days of 150,000 Extra Vote
Offer Left,
$1950 Hudson Sedan and Two $1420 Buick Six
Coaches Being: Won Under 150,000 Extra
Vote Offer.
As lhe first period is quickly drawing to a close there appears
another and perhaps even greater reason why you should go in with
solid determination TO WIN in spite of all obstacles. The
thing that has urged you on is your ambition. You want that PRIZE
OF PRIZES the $1950 Hudson Sedan. And it is a worthy ambition
too, I can assure you.
If you have sat behind the wheel of a luxurious Hudson Sedan, it
is unnecessary for me to tell you anything more about it. It is truly
a prize that will bring to the winner closed car perfection of the first
quality; that is, in every sense A KING OF CARS. This rnugnif
icant prize is sufficient reason to make anyone hustle his best.
But Think O, This Also. When You Started Out To Win Your
Friends Agreed To Back You Up.
They helped "M from the start to gather votes to build up a win
ning score. AN i, THEY ARE STILL BACK OF YOU —to the last
They expect to see you the owner of the $1950 Hudson Super-Six Sedan.
Now the question is ARE LOU GOING TO PROVE to them that their
friendship was well deserved.
After their trust in vour capabilities, after all they have aided you,
in waging a successful campaign, don’t you think it would be a mighty
poor plan on your part to waste any of the precious hours during the
remaining few days of the 150,000 Extra Vote Offer? They believe in
you; they are confident that you will win the $1950 Hudson.
Don’t Shatter Their Belief In You.
You may think that, your friends, neighbors and relatives don’t
care very much. But you are wrong if you think so, for the eyes of
every individual in your community are upon yen now. Very likely
they seldom mention anything about it in your bearing. It is there
just the same, however, aiul everyone is buzzing with-'.conversation re
garding your work in the campaign. Your friends WANT YOU TO

If you allow some or most of the precious hours in these tew re
maining days of the first period to slip by without the utmost endeavoi
on your part, your friends are going to notice it and you may fail a
bit in their estimation. Don’t give them an opportunity to lose any oi
that faith they' have in you. Their support is necessary for your final
success. It is mighty important to you to have them continue this
golden confidence.
In the four days remaining of the 150.000 Extra Vote Offer, you
should do just what they expect you to do. You should make full use
of every minute. Do every bit in your power to forge ahead NOW
when it is easy and then stay ahead. You should get yourself into
a leading position as quickly as possible and then insure ultimate suc
cess by piling up every vote within reach.
Realize your friends are watching and waiting for you to win. You
have the start, the opportunity and ability. Go ahead WIN.
Endless Shifting of Positions May Play Havoc With Your Votes.
Insure Success By Keeping Busy.
It is very probably that at this stage of the campaign some candi
dates have begun to feel just a little self-satisfied with their best efforts
and are already beginning to lose their grip a little, if they' have reason
to believe that they are up among the leaders somewhere.
Now self confidence is a good thing a wonderful quality to have
but like everything else, it can be carried a little too far. It can
be over done and that is just what may happen to some of the candi
dates who are beginning to feel SELF CONFIDENT - TOO SOON IN j
THE GAME. . „V, TV,!
