13 Times Have the People of Wyoming Sent Mondell to Washington. 13 Times He Has Promised Prosperity to the People 13 Times He Has Failed | to make good these promises The pride of Wyoming Republkans fell flat before gathering disappointed in the “flower of the Republican when more than three hundred people left the place of party.” Mr. Mondell’s attempt to besmirch the char acter of his opponent, John B. Kendrick- did not meet with a sympathetic response on the part of his audience. Mr. Mondell has in years gone by addressed audi ences in Lovell when he was a fluent speaker, and at perfect freedom befofrfef hfis audience. The freedom of action, and the fluency of speech were both entirely lacking when he appeared last Friday night. His talk of prosFperity, which the Republican party had brought upon the country, was very il'-timed in this particular locality. His bragging of what the Republi can party had done for agricultural interests, fell flat, for all who read, know fulfl well that every bit of agri cultural and livestock legislation that has passed the LET THE EX-SERVICE MEN SAY WHAT THEY THINK ABOUT JOHN B. KENDRICK Referring to Kaiser Bill’s re cent editorial in the Worland Grit, of the ex-service men gum shoeing for Senator Kendrick. As an ex-service man who has spent more than eighteen months in France, and a Kendrick man, I wish to ask the editor of the Grit who has a better right to voice their opinion than the men who bared their breasts to the Hun lords, to make the world safe for democracy and the Wor land Grit. While the Kendrick ex-service men were in Frace, where was the Renpublican editor who is condemning the ex-service men for voicing their opinion? But then what more can we expect from the Republican press, when taking headlines from their col umns we find them to read like this: 191/—"Our Gallant Heroes.” 1918—“ The Saviors of Our Country.” 1919 "The Returning Sol diers.” 1920 "The Ex-Service Men.” 1921 “The Soldier Element." 1922 “Unscrupulous Robbers of the American Treasury.” F. C. CUSICK. Senator Irvine, Life Long Republican, Out For Senator Kendrick Douglas, Wyo., October 13. (Special to The Boom erang.)—Declaring that the senatoriel election in Wy oming is not a question of partisan politics, former Sen ator William C. Irvine of Converse county, a Republican, today issued a statement urging the voters of Wyoming to support Uunited States Senator John B. Kendsick. Mr. Irvine asserted that in voluntarily relinquishing the leadership of the Republican party in the house in order to run agairfst Senator Kendrick, Mr. Mondell was sac rificing the state in order to serve his personal ambition. Mr. Irvine’s statement follows: "As a mere business proposition, says one type of Republican, Mondell should be promoted to the Unites States Senate. If you had had a man in your employ for 25 years and he had given satisfaction would you not promote him if he requested it. ? Asks this type of Republican. “The argument does not meet the test. There is not an efficient or well-administered corporation in the country that would discharge one capable employee be- Friday the 13th.

HOWELL!! ffsg/ Republican congress has been forced upon it by the Agricultural Bloc, of which Senator Kendrick is a mem ber. Mr. Mondell’s explanation of the Teapot Dome rease was equal to no explanation whatever.’ He talked in llarge figures of what the dame would produce and what would be Wyoming’s share of the same for schools and roads, and apparently attempted to bewilder his audience by marshaling a group of unusually large and attractive revenue figures to be derived from the dome and have them forget the real question of the manner and method of which the lease was secretly leased by the Republi can administration to the Standard Oil interests. In his uneasy and restless condidtion before the crowd of Friday night Mr. Mondell forgot entirely to say anything about the bonus bill. He boasted of the inability of the Democratic ad- cause another employee, however capable, became am bitious to gain the other’s place. Assume, for example, that for 25 years you had showered honors upon an em ployee and because you had honored him and had re posed confidence in him. he had gained a position of in fluence among a certain wide circle of patrons whose co operation you were most anxious to have. Assume then, that disregarding all the honors you had given him, he suddenly became ambitious to displace another employee working in a different field who had also given you great satisfaction, and came to you asking for the other man s ojb, saying, “I know I am holding a very im portant place, that by reason of my long service I have gained special influence that nobody else can have with these particular patros. I know that it is very import ant to you that lou should have the benefit of this in fluence, but I don’t care about that. I want this other fellow s job- You can get some new and inexperienced men for my place.” Do yo think you would discharge one capable employee at the request of a man like that ? ministration to enact legislation and paid particular at tention to the oil and land leasing bill, which he accred ited action of the Republication when it came into power, when as a matter of fact the oil and land leasing bill became a law in February, 1929, one year prior to the inauguration of the Repblican administration. We might continue on right down through the ad dress of Mr. Mondell calling attention to the same class of misstatements made at that gathering, but what is the use. when his most enthusiastic admiders were not only disappointed, but disgusted with the insincerity of the address that evening. 3 The conclusion many have arrived at since the Mon dell speech in Lovfll last Friday night, is that he made more votes for Kendrick than any efforts that can possi bly be put forth by the Democratic organization this Os course you would not. But that’s exactly the sort of a request Mr. Mondell is making to the people of Wy oming. J “He is now the leader of the Republican party in the house.

P 1 WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1522 PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT SAID MONDELL STANDS FOR PRIVATE INTERESTS On page 393 of Colonel Roose velt s autobiography, Roosevelt, speaking of the Wyoming Con gressman, says: “He is a Con gressman who took the lead in every meaure to prevent the con servation of our national resour ces- and the preservation of the national domain for the use of homeseekers.” That is not the only reference Roosevelt makes to the Wyom ing man in his book. On page 431 of the same book Teddy Sr refers to “Mr. Mondell— who consistently fought for local and private interests as against the interests of the people as a whole." “ABSENT” The Republican press Is lamenting the tact that Senator Kendrick has absented himself from the Senate from time to Uwe, but they are not telling where he was nor what he w a s doing, for tfhe fatets are, SenatFor Kendrick went to France, at his own expense, to see how the boys were faring over there, and upon his re turn to the Senate he made such a fight against conditions a* they were over there th a t the boys received some relief.
