WORCESTER DEMOCRAT AND THE LEDGER-ENTERPRISE A Statement From I SAMUEL M. CROCKETT j Democratic Candidate For House of Delegates [ To the Democratic Voters of Worcester County, Maryland: ► I take it for granted that it is pretty generally known that I am a candi £ date for re-election as a member of the House of Delegates of Maryland, sub i jcct to the Primary Election to be held on September the Oth. As the time is ► unusually short it will be impossible for me to see all the voters in person i | and because of that fact 1 address you in this manner. ► I want, first of all, to thank the good people of this county for the confi* i ► dcnce they reposed in me by electing me to this position two years ago, I 1 k feel deeply grateful to the great party to which I belong for the honor of J ► being placed upon the ticket and especially do I appreiate the individual w 1 | ter who made it possible for me to receive such a flattering vote at the polls, j ► My record in the recent Legislature is before you and I hope it was such as j ’ to warrant your support of my candidacy at this time. < , Experience is the best of teachers and to be sure lam belter fitted to j ► serve you in the sssion of 1922 than I was in that of 1920, and I promise, if ] [ again 1 have your confidence, I will never betray it, and will support only < ► those things which tend to good government. ► I might add that on the subject of law enforcement, which seems to be J [ such a prominent issue at this time, that if elected I shall vote as I did in the J ► 1920 session, because I have always believed that concurrent legislation was 2 J the only solution of the question involved. In the absence of any knowledge j , of other matters that may arise, I shall surely stand back of the Democratic J ► platform which will be adopted at the coming State Convention. J I respectfully ask the lady voters of m.y county for their support in this j , contest, promising them that if elected their claims will have my very- best < ’ attention at all times. ‘ i I Just why some of the leaders in my own district are fighting me, I am ! ► at a loss to know, and in order that the voters of the county may know some- i ► thing of me I want to State that: i J 1 am 57 y ears cld and am married. j ► I have voted 35 times and never scratched a ticket in my life, always vot- i ► mg the democratic ticket. One year, by reason of death in the family, it was 1 , impossible for me to get to the polls. 1 have always been an organization democrat and have always rendered < , it service to the best of my ability. • i am nobody’s pet candidate, put up by no special person. 1 am a i r straight down the middle of the road democrat, announcing my own Candida- 1 , cy, after consulting with many prominent democrats throughout the county. ] ► I have been running a democratic newspaper for more than 50 years. < J The only public office 1 ever held was that of n Member of the House of ' ► Delegates in 1920. j ► 1 ask that you repose confidence in me for another term, , In order that I may meet the people of the county and that they may In - ! ► j come better acquainted with me I have arranged tile following seWfetlti and ► will be at the following places at the times mentioned to mote fulijPpreSer.t ' , my cause: ► I‘ncomoko City—Saturday, August 27th .at 4 P.

Be Considerate Of The Telephone Girls “Telephoning in hot weather is not pleasant exercise ami when one has held the ’phone to his ear for five ! minutes, he hangs up the instrument with a sigh of relief.
