j. a prominent W. C. T. U. worker
anil lecturer, delivered an address.
.She denounced Governor A1 Smith as
the candidate of the liquor gang and
stated that he represented the forces
which would destroy those things for
which the W. C. T. U. had stood for
years. He had been elected Gover
nor of New York by Tnmany Hall
which stood for all that was corrupt.
He drank his “three high balls" n
jay, and that jt he should be elected
President he would violate the prohi
bition law for he would carry
whiskey into the White House.
There would be no negro electors
pat on the Republican ticket in Geor
gia. but if there was she would
press* the negro and swallow him
before she would vote for A1 Smith."

porting the Republican ticket,
