WILLIS AND DAVIS. In this year of political controversies, it is more than ordinarily significant to note that two men who seek high offices of trust and responsibility on the Republican ticket in Ohio are men who grew up from the nanks. They belong to the common people, for they were born and reared among common people, they know the problems and the trials of the common people and their experiences with the poeple have been so deep-seated that they are not likely to forget the lessons which they learned trough the years of their association Jfith the rank and file of men and woman. These candidates are Frank 13. Willis, former governor of Ohio, wfco aspires to the seaft in the United States Senate which shall be vacated by Senator Worren G. Harding, and Harry L. Davis, formerly mayor of Cleveland, and. the Republican nominee for governor. Both are essentially men who have risen from the ranks and are friendly to those who toil by the sweat of their brow. Their candi dacy should appeal with special emphasis to the large foreign popu lation which has become Americanized, because of their sympathetic attitude toward the problems of those less fortunate in life's battles. ífc^Mr. Willis' unflinching purpose to fight for the rights of the common peeple is well known. His record in Congress and as Gover nor of Ohio is a record of l«*ws tfcat ineant better working coiulitiQjis md better wages* Mr. Willis has Tn«By friends~in the Mahoning Valley who ate pfrsonally interested in his aspirations, because of the broad view fie o! pobtew* tf&ectigg tb* wpikiug people. AN AMBKIOAN WEEKLY 1H THE HUNOASIAW LANQUAflKi FOB THE MAOTAB8 OF THE MAHONING 4 SHENANOO VALLEti PubUahed eve/y Thursday by The United Printing Company Auto. 320-322 W. Federal St. tall, Willis és Davis In this district the candidacy of Harry L. Davis for governor should appeal with special force because of the fact that Davis is ihe son of a puddler. His father worked in the steel mills at New burg an(í it was in a mill district that young Davis was reared. Three times he was elected mayor of Cleveland, the state's largest city, and won the confidence of the p&eple by bis fairness at all times. It is significant to recall that while he was mayor of Cleveland a committee of prominent preachers land priests was appointed to investigate moral conditions. In a formal document this committee recorded its belief that moral conditions in Cleveland were better at that time than they had been at any time since the residence of the investigators there. Regarding Mr. Davis' business ability, it is worthwhile to recall that while serving as treasurer of the city of Cleveland, his applicat ion of business principles to the transaction of public business at tracted wide attention. When he was induced last spring to become a candidate for governor, he insisted fairness to the people of Cle veland demanded that he do his campaigning on his own time and not on that of his constituents, and lie accordingly resigned. "Wage-earners have a friend in Harry Jj. Davis who will go the limit for them and will insist upon fair and equitable treatment for them at all times. FOREIGN EXCHANGE H7 S.
