THE WEEKLY TlME^RECORP, VALLEY CITY, NORTH DAKOTA
The Times-Record received a visit
Saturday afternoon from Congress*
man Elect James H. Sinclair, of Ken
mare, who after the fourth of next
March will succeed Congressman P.
D. Norton from the third district. Mr.
Sinclair has been a personal friend of
the Times-Record e'ditor for a great
many years, and while we do not agree
with him politically we feel that he
will make the state a good congress
man just the same. No cleaner cut
man ever went to congress from North
Dakota than J. H. Sinclair and he will
do his work conscientiously and hon
estly as he sees it. He has always
been a democrat but was elected as a
republican with the nonpartisan
league endorsement. Anyway there
are many things worse than being a
democrat with the league endorse
ment and we look to see Congressman
Sinclair make a good record for him
self. Unless the president calls an
extra session of congress Mr. Sinclair
will not really get into congress until
the regular session next December.
