      During the _afternoon of August 21st Hr. TOAMANION, 1627
   Poplar, Dallas, Texas, no telephone, called at the Dalles Office.
   He informed me that he had a case of very grave importance to re-
        port. The Bureau will recall that WXNIOH is a former Deputy
   Sheriff of Dallas County, Texas, who was convicted and sent to
   the penitentiary in connection the escape of HARVEY BAILH,

   When. MANION called at the tfice he first inquired of
me as to whether I had seen HIRJEORD lately. I informed
-     MANION that I had seen Mr. EURFORD the sidewalk in front of

nelly Hot Oil Act. Mr. BURFO during the past week, las re-

information which had come to him "straight" to the effect that on
Friday, August 19, 1959, some kiduapers hed
BURFORD while he was under the influence of liquor' at Dallas, Tens,
and had taken him to the Roosevelt Hotel in Shreveport Louisiana,
where they held him during Saturday and Sunday, August 19th and
20, 1959, for a ransom of $10,000 with a' threat that they would
turn him over to the United States Attorney for prosecution if
that money was not forthcoming. MANION stated that he could not
advise me as to the source of his informntiron because if he did
so he would violate a confidence. He did advise, however, that
it came to him from e. source that was looking for someone to go
over to Shreveport to cause the relqse of Mr. BUREURD. He
indicated that :Ln all probability the $10,000 ransom had he
paid. I informed Mr. MALIION that I would check into the Hatter.,

relies-ing are excerpts from the speech of   G. amines-
LY, given over Radio Station WDSU, New Orleans, August 32, 1939, at 9:20
PM. This was taken by means of an ediphone and the following is the trans
cript therefrom:
investigating graft and
corruption in Louisiana,
and they knew in their vicious and corrupt hearts, that was not my pur-
pose. They knew that I am just as much interested in clean Government
in Louisiana as they pretend to be. The only
thing I ever objected to
about O. JOHN ROGGE was his very obvious disposition to play to the press
in this State, and the only reason I objected
cause I refuse to stand idly by and see ROGGE
create the impression throughout the world at
Iouisiana's public figures have been indicted
sion of crime in this State, that decency and
and do still object, was be-
help these newspapers to
large that because som of
and charged with the commis-
honesty do not reside here
at all, and that Louisiana is a gangster~land where a man can't even ex-
ercise his right of free speech, without of being in danger of being
taken
TOP 5 And I say that's not so. I say a man can speak his mind
in this State, without any fear at ell, and I say that because I've
spoken
my mind all over this State, many times without ever being bothered by
the
people of any locality, whether they agreed with my views or not and lord
knows, sometimes they didn't. They've always given me a fair hearing, and
I say further, that when ROGGE had his picture taken by these newspapers,
with a letter containing bullets and a death threat which he says he re-
ceived, he was actuated by face motives and was playing to the grandstend
of public opinion. Does my time run out at l0:l5?
There never was a prosecutor of public officiall, ladies and
gentlemen, in this world, who has not at some time or another, during his
official life, received a so-called death threat from a crank. If you
don't believe me my friends, just pick up your telephone tomorrow morning
and ask District Attorney CHARLES A. BYRNE or Chief of Detectives JOHN
GROSCH if I'm telling you the truth. And ask
them if they have ever pub-
lished such a letter if they got one. Ask them why they haven't, and I'l1
bet you they'll tell you it was because they realize that it would hurt
the reputation and credit of this city and State to publish a thing like
that. Why, I've gotten threatening letters.
I've gotten hundreds of let-
ters threatening my life - I've gotten letters, I've gotten messages
since
this little series of speeches st. ted, and anytime I get one of them I
crumple it up and throw it in th .waste basket where it deserves to be,
be
cause it's from some crezy'cr?, that fhas no

,sg
32man don't warn you when he's going to kill you, he goes ahead and bumps
you off.
Why the other day these newspapers carried a picture of ROGGE
in his shirt sleeves in a melodramatic pose saying "This fight will be
carried on to the end". Why man you look like a character out of Horatio
Alger in that pose. What'f1ght? Nho's fighting you? Ybu've caught
some people and you say they're crooks, and you had than indicted, you
get
some more and you'll have them indicted - so what? Go ahead and try them.
Then if a jury after hearing the evidence says they'rs guilty, put them
in
jail where they belong. Wbo's fighting you? Ybu're supported by all the
prestige and power of the United States of America, and you even have the
United States Army and Navy to fight at your side, if it should become
nec-
essary. You think people of Louisiana are crazy? Do you think they'd want
to fight Uncle Sam? what the people of Louisiana insist on is that you
function under the American Constitution of 1789 and not under a
Constitu-
tion drafted for you by the Times Picayune and the Boston Club of New
Orleans
Conform to the dignity and tradition of your high office and stop letting
these newspapers make you ridiculous. You're down here on serious
business
MR. ROGGE, and that affects the welfare of an entire sovereign State, and
if
you comport yourself with dignity and honor when your duties are over,
you
will leave here with the gratitude, respect and admiration of Louisiana's
people. But if you will not so comport yourself, and you continue to
permit
yourself to be entrapped by the newspapers into an unsound and
unjustified
position, such as the one at Opelousas when you sent those G4Men over
there
to do plain police duty, mere police duty, when you knew or should have
known that the Constitution, or rather the Supreme Court of the United
States said you got no business to do that.
I say if you don't leave off that sort of stuff you're going
to leave Louisiana's people but one alternative, and that is, to demand
of
Attorney General FRANK you either confine yourself to the per-
formance of your official duties, or that you be ple replaced by someone
who will. You should know by this time that you are being exploited by
a group of people who were repudiated by an overwhelming majority of
Louis-
iana's citizens fifteen years ago. Not one of these people who are trying
_to use you for their own selfish purpose could get a letter of
recommenda-
tion from any decent and honest citizen of this State for the humblest
public position in Louisiana.
So MR. RDGGE, again let me appeal to you. Stop misadvertis-
ing Louisiana to the world. Make a careful and searching investigation of
the violation of Federal laws in this state and vigorously prosecute all
defendants. And if you convict 'em and send 'em to jail all decent people
in Louisiana will thank you. But,;ake off the customs of Don Quixote and
stock attacking windmills and b' fboos when there's an opportunity for
you
to perform a reel service to ;siana and her people. Throughout these

newspapers can scandalize our fair State in the eyes of the world. That'

On August 15, 1959, assistant
General 0. JOHN ROGGE requested an Agent (Accountant) be
to Special Assistant Attorney General HAROLD ROS ALB for the' purpose
of assisting him in the phase of the above-entitl cape
the refunding of Orleans Levee Board bonds by the I'i1'm"6i' fii
HARRIS of New 02188350
-1
For the information of the Bureau, on July 10, 1956, the
firm of HEWMAN secured a contract from the Orleans
Levee Board to refund five outstanding callahle 5% bond issues of that
board totaling in principal $5,485,000.00, with maturities running to
1975, and for which services under the contract the brokerage house
was to receive 25% of the savings effected to the Levee Board. The
maturities on outstanding issues were re-arranged, shortening th
considerably, and a lower interest rate obtained for the refunded
issues, which rate by a certain average amounted to 5.87%, according
to ROBERT J. NENMAN of the firm of NEWMAN, HARRIS do GOHZPANY. The
savings, as computed by the brokerage house, on the $l,Q85,865.42 was
computed as the difference in the amount of the interest to be paid
under the old schedule of maturities and that payable under the new
schedule prepared by the brokerage firm, less adjustments for premiums
paid on calling the old issues and that received on the sale on new
issues, also including other adjustments for forfeitures of stipulated
maturities made by the brokerage firm. Of the com ission received by
NEWMAN, HARRIS 50%, less certain deductions for expenses, was
paid to ABRAHAM SHUSHAN, a former president of the Levee Board who had
resigned in 1955 after an indictment against him for violation of Federal
inco tax evasion statutes, SHUSHAN is also a notorious political
character in the City of New Orleans and the State of Louisiana. The
amount received by SHUSHAN was approximately $200,000.00. Of this
amount, about one third, 'was learned by the United States Attorney's
office, was paid to two 'her individuals. Of this amount, approximately
$15,000.00 was paid J. MILLER, an accountant, and approximately
$125,000.00 was psig H. W. who was at the time of the
payment a member_p@ the Levee Board, ,?fy

NEFMAN and HARRIS disclaimed any knowledge of the
split of the part bf the fee paid. to SHUSHAN and claimed to have
paid SHUSHAN under an agreement with him to furnish than infomation
as to hot the contract could be obtained legally, although SBUSHAN
is neither lanyer, accountant, or 'bond expert.
Special Agent (A) Nmsos PERRY conferred with
Special Assistant to the Attorney General HAROLD ROSEHWAISD and ROBERT I.

ROGG-E, Special Assistant to the Attorney General HAROLD ROSENWAID,
United States Attorney RIENE VIOSCA, ROBERT I. NENMAN, NORVDI TRENT
HARRIS, TR., and E. E. TALBUT, Attorney for NEHMAN and HARRIS. Agent
PERRY also attended a private conference with Special Assistant to

L. MOAK is employed as a clerk at the Bureau of Governmental
Hess 11 of New Orleans, Louisiana, a civic organization organized
to act as a fact-finding body in the interests of better civic
government in New Orleans, L. L. HOAK and other members of that
bureau have made a study of the Newman, Harris 8s Ccmpeny-Orleans Levee
Board transaction, and had prepared a report, a copy of which has been
furnished for the file of the New Orleans Office, which report reached
the conclusion that the savings effected by the brokerage firm to the
Levee Board were considerably less than that computed by thebrokerage
firm and that, therefore, the commission received was excessive to the
extent of the difference in the result of the calculations of the
brokerage fum, and the Bureau of Governmental Research.
The basis for ,computation used by HOAK was to apply
the old interest rate to the new schedule of maturities and computing
the difference between that amount of interest and the amount of
interest payable under the new rate on the new schedule of maturities,
He said he had also computed present vadues on a compound interest
rate of 25% of the differences in expenditures required each year
to make principal and interest payments under the old and new schedules
of bond maturities, and the result of this computation is said to be
the savings to the Board, based on the present value of money, which
savings amounted to consid bly less than that as computed by the
brokerage firm,
Tae 'eau of Governmental Research concluded in its
report that the fda employed by it were the actual savings to the

new schedule of maturities amounted to $698,088.42, as compared with
the $1,985,863,42 on'lhich the commission was id to the brokerage
fillo
Agent PERRY attended these conferences only in a A
advisory capacity to the Goyernment's attorneys and declined to furnish
any opinion as to the accepted or proper'basia for computing tbe saving:
effected by the refunding of the Levee Board bond issues, taking the
position that such a matter was within the specialized field of bond
experts, theorized upon the basis from which to determine the true
savings on the refunding transaction. 'Bb did,`howevar, furnish
suggestions te the Government*s attorneys as to different bases that
could be employed in computing the savings, and advised thenthat ne
was qualified to make computations on the bases suggested.
Due to the fact that Special Assistant to the Attorney
General HAROLD ROSENWALD desired that the facts representing the savings
to the Levee Board on the refunding of its bonds be presented to the
grand jury on August 17, 1939, and the file had not been made available
to Agent PERRY, the computations as suggested by Agent PERRY could not
be performed within the time required. IR. ROSENWALD, therefore, de-
cided to use for presentation to the grand jury the testimony of L. L,
MOAK and indicated that he would not at this time require further
assistance of Agent PERRY, since the indictments were expected to be
returned by August 18, 1959.

Re: HILARY I GAHDINE -
INFORMATI
Dear Sir! f'
The details of the investigation conducted in the above
matter are set out in report of Special Agent S. M. WOLF, New Orleans,
dated July sv, 1959.
To bring this matter up to date for the information of the
Bureau, I may advise that the Attorney General left it up to the U. S.
Attorney, RENE A. VIOSCA, as to whether the resignation of GAUDIN
should be asked for. MR. VIOSCA considered asking for resig-
nation, at which time GAUDIN vigorously protested and begged that he
be allowed to remain in office, at least until the present inquiries
are over, since if he would resign at the present time he would ruin
his legal career in New Orleans.
HR. VIOSCA agreed to request, but asked that he
have nothing to do with the investigation into the political situation
in New Orleans and Louisiana, and should not acquaint himself with
any of the details thereof. Since that time GAUDIN has been coming
around the U. S. Attorney's office but has taken no active part in the
work connected with the current investigations.
On August 21, 1939, Assistant Attorney General ROGGE and
MR. VIOSCA advised me that they were that dey going to instruct GLUDIN
to stay away from the U. S. Attorney's office entirely, and take all
the annual leave he is entitled to in order that he will not be in a
position to be around the office and to learn any of the information
developed by the investigations being conducted or the plans of the
prosecuting officials. r_
This is the present status of the matter, and if there
are any further developments I will of course advise the Bureau in the
5' .. -
premises. REOORDED LNDEXED

.Hr. StanleyTCarroll of theilnternationalm1ews_"w
Service called and stated that . Hearst has sent one of
thefforemost woman writers, Inez obb, to Louisiana to
report on the situation there. He stated that Miss Robb .
is a personal friend of the Attorney General, and had
tried to contact him before going to Louisiana in order
I that he might tell her whom she might contact there and
advise those people from whom she might obtain information
that she could be trusted. He requested that if possible
arrangements be made so that she,could be directed to the
right people to talk with.

.Hr. Carroll stated that he is going to have a
man at Mr. Rogge's press conference this afternoon, and
that this man will explain the situation to Mr. Rogge. MT.
Carroll inquired if there is anyone in charge of the inves-
tigation who could give her the background of the case.
I advised Mr. Carroll that the Bureau is conducting
only a small part of the investigation in this matter, and
that the work is divided up between several governmental
agencies. Ebwever, I told Mr; Carroll that I would present
iggf the matter to the Director and would get h's opinion on it.

.
. - HR. E,
.Hr. rcirxeareen, Assistant Attorney General
of the Nineteenth District of Louisiana, called and
A stated he had written Mr. Hoover requesting the
services of a handwriting expert in connection with
the Louisiana situation. He stated Mr. Hoover had
replied by letter inquiring how long the handwriting
expert would be needed. Mr. Harden stated he wrote
Mr. Hoover last Tuesday eeplaining as nearly as
possible how long the eapert would be needed. He
stated that as he was now in Washington perhaps he
could get.Mr. Hoover's decision and thus save time.
I told hr. Harden I would check into this
matter and thereafter advise him. He stated he was
stayin; at the Washington Hotel, Room 626.
Respectfully,

ROSEN
After checking the files, I that there is an out-
going letter dated August 17; 1939, which apparently
Mr. Hardin has not received. This letter states that
it is the Bureau's policy not tp make examinations of
technical evidence which has already been examined by
other e;perts_for it seems an unnecessary duplication
of efforts.| I will advise Hr. Hardin af this.

Mr. Harr??Coste1lo, of whose connections I understand you are
aware, saw me yesterday afternoon, the Attorney General being out
of town. He wished you to have the following information received
from Mr. Harris of thaPNewman,?Barris Company of louisiana.

Incidentally, Mr. Costello says that Mr. Harris is a friend
of his and a fine fellow although perhaps duped by Shushin. Mr.
Harris stated, according to Mr. Costello, that Mr. Miller, a CPA,
gave Mr. H. w?3nagueepack money, probably for Shushin.
He also gaverne the name of Mr. L. ELeBrownson, 3209 Laurel
Street, New Orleans (Jackson 222l4W). He stated that Mr. Brown-
son is a public-minded citizen and anxious to help the Federal
Government, but is fearful for his life. He indicated that Mr.
Brownson has information concerning Louisiana matters, including
the following:
l. That Iirs. Lydia .*Iickliffe, manager of the Pontalba
Building, St. Peter and Royal Streets, can probably
identify someone in Louisiana as Lepke. Mrs. hickliffe
is the widow of fonner Congressman Wickliffe of Louis-
iana.
2. That Mrs. Alfredo1Blanco, 1541 Esplanade (Crescent
3559), widow of the late Consul of Bolivia here, can
- tell something that will tie up with Shushin.

speaker
SHIRLEY
This is a paid political program. Views expressed by the
are his own and not necessarily those of this HR.

Ladies and gentlemen: First let me thank the thousands
of good people throughout the State of Louisiana, who have been eo
kind as to tell me by letter, by telegram and by telephone, since
my last
speech over this station, that they heartily approve the
sentiment I expressed upon that occasion. Each communicat1on,a1most
invarieblyyadmonished me to keep up the fight. You need have no fear,
my friends, I most certainly intend to keep up the fight. This fight
is too important to the interests of every poor men, women and child
in louisiana, to even think for a moment of quitting. This fight
must gc
on! If it fails, you poor people of Louisiana prepare your
wrists for the shackles that the lying and corrupt newspapers, and
the big
on you,
monied corporate interests have been busily preparing to.put
ever since the first newspaper headlines in the Times Picay-
une gleefully shrieked with fiendish delight that something was wrong
at Louisiana State University at Baton Rouge.
The average citizen of Louisiana, sincere in his love for
his State, and deeply interested in the welfare of all its institu-
tions, was shocked and dis ayed at the unfortunate disclosure, at L.
S. U. The good men and women of this State felt sense of sorrow
that hens had come to their famous and beloved University, but to
the newspapers, that was the signal they had awaited so long. It
meant to them an opportunity to commence a wave of hysteria and ex-
citement in Louisiana that they might well use, to completely destroy
the faith of the people in their Government. Sure, every public of-
ficial in Louisiana have been crook and a scoundrel and thief.
That was their program! Say that all politftians, high and low,
big and
little, were crooks, and then bring forward a scurvy misfit
little outfit of hlueblocded corpo ation lawyers and bankers, and
brokers, and other representatives of,the special interests, headed
by men like ELDON JOE CARROLL, and every other
enemy of the people they could_}hi of,and say to the people: Here's
your savior, let these peopleifhke charge of Louisiana! Run all your
elected
society
officoals these big, pure, holy and patriotic high
boys move in, and fhen you ll have a reel honest clean Govern-
ment. That was their p1_ rem, that was the program of these lying and

dishonest newspapers, that'e the kind of they thought they
could make the people of Louisiana swallow. Why, when the news broke
of the misfortune that had happened et L. S. U. these newspaper tel-
lows and their corporation lawyers went wild with joy. Here's the
chance we've been waiting for boys, here it is, and et_last we've
got our break! we can capitalize on Louisiana's misfortune, let
these poor people hang their heads in sorrow, they're stunned, and
before they can get over being stunned and start to think straight,
again, we will tan the flames of hatred and malice and prejudice
against everybody that has any official connection with the Govern-
ment of Louisiana. We'll say they're all crooks, and burglars and
scoundrels and thieves, and the people will get so worked up over it
all they'll get so excited and inflamed by the hewspeper headlines,
and the lies we can print, thsyowon't have time to look into the cher-
acter and reputation of the worn out aristocrets we're shoving down
their throats. An then we'1l be in power in Louisiana again! That's
what the newspapers said. Oh, the deceit, the hypocracy, the villainy
of these contemptible newspapers! Glad! Glad! Over Louisiana's scan
dal! Glad over her shame! When Louisians's plain, honest and patrio-
tic citizens sorrowed that some of her officials had betrayed their
trust and had been found in sin, these buzzards in print, these vul-
tures in type, these scavengers in headlines, licked their loathsome
chops and run their filthy mouths, while they rejoicingly
waited to pick our bones. They rejoiced, these newspapers, I tell
you! They rejoiced, these corporation lawyers! When they learned
that trouble had started in this State; ,Just as they sat around
tables in a tack room and raised their tinkling glasses in rejoicing
to celebrate Louisiana's greatest tragedy - the assassination of
F. Just as they sent floral offerings to the grave of
HUEY murderous assassin! Just as some of their Find even went
to that assassin's funeral. Oh, they're saying that I was
hitterest enemy, they are saying that I opposed HUEY LONG. They are
right when they say I opposed politics for a period of his po-
litical life. They are wrong when they soy I was HUEY bitter
enemy. Tell the truth just once, you lying newspapers. Tell the
truth just once, if the truth is anywhere in your lying carcasses.

speeches for him throughout his campaign. I was his friend after he
became Governor, and through the nerr days of his impeachment.
In 1950 he came down here to New Orleans, and not knowing
the situation, and not knowing certain politiclans as well as he might,
made the mistake of being fooled into joining forces withla man who
was about as foul and sorry a sooundrel as has ever disgraced this city.
And you people know who I'm_ta1k1ng shout. I'm not going to mention
his name because he*s out of politics, and there's no purpose in men-
tioning his name; HUEY didn*t know him for what he really was.
friends did know this man well. They tried to dissuade him, but HUEY
wouldn't listen, and he let this man fool him into joining up with him.
Several-of friends and I decided we could not go
along on the proposition. We told that man was universally hated
and despised in this city, and would eventually do h1m.a lot of harm.
HUEY`wou1dn't listen, and we parted company. It was then I opposed HUEY
LONG. Yes, I opposed him! Openly and fearlesely, at the zenith of his pow
er, when the sun of his success stood at nigh noon. I opposed HUEY LONG
at a time when he had all his health and vigor, out in the open, face to
face. I didn't wait until after his murder to oppose him, and then turn
on his iorrowing widow and seek to do her harm, as the crayon, cowardly
newspapers have done.
I said in that circular HUEY LONG and I composed our differ#
ences when he discovered that his friends had told him the truth about
the man he had joined forces with in New Orleans. That man doubleorossed
HUEY LONG, and HUEY kicked him out. And if HUEY LONG Saw fit to compose
his differences with me two years before his death, then I say that's
good enough for me. I spent those two years before HUEY LONG was killed
on the battlefield with him, helping him fight his enemies. And the best
answer I can make to those, like the lying newspapers, who would try to

the slanderous, malicious and cowardly attacks of foul and cruel harpies
like the Times Picayune. Now, that brings us down to what hes happened
in the State since my last speech,`ladies and gentlemen. That speech did
away with the Citizens Voluntary Committee. Don't you ever let anybody
fool you about that. I'm going to show you in a minute how it did. I'm
going to prove to you that the morning after,thst speech the Citizens
Voluntary Committee was on the run, and the next day there wasn't any
more
Citizens Voluntary Committee. I'll come to that in a minute.

to be turned on them and they*re stampeding on ue. Fretty soon we
won't have a bhker'e dozen of our original one hundred and one, let
alone all those who have jined up with us since",
These ring leaders got their heads together and they pow-
wowwed and they conferred, and they consulted and they considered and
they reconsidered, and finally what do ydu suppose they came up to?
Here's what they decided. Those fellows, JOE CARROLL, JOHN M. PARKER,
JR., SHINOLA.PHELPS, here's what they decided. Let's quit using that>>
citizens voluntary committee. Let's change that 1et'e break
off that mask, let's use one of our other names. You know this newe-
paper corporation lawyer outfit has plenty a names. So they said,
let's use our best known name, and try that one out on
maybe that'1l sound bigger than Citizens Voluntary Committee, and
maybe he'll give in to our demands, and let ue run the State for 'em
without being elected to office.
Here's the name they came up with - Association of Com-
merce. Assassination of Commerce! That's the latest name these lying
newspapers and their big monied friends are using. They figure they'l
scare you Governor, better watch those birds, those society people
are slick EARL. If you think I'm joking about this my friends, if you
want to check up on what I've just been telling you, get your news-
papers dating from August to date,`and see how active this bunch
of high powered rich people have been under the name they started out
With - the Citizens Voluntary Committee.
I made a speech last week exposing the hypocracy and
corruptness of that whole bunch of antis, known at various times in
the past ten or twelve years as the Constitutional League, and the
Honest Election League, and this league, that league and the other
league, dedicated to the lofty purpose of taking Louisiana'e Govern-
ment away from the people and giving it hack to the newspapers and
the corporation lawyers. I climbed on board of that bunch in my last
speech and told the plain unvarnished truth about 'em, and like all
such fake outfits they commenced to cave in and crumble up at once.
Now, on August fifth, that was five or six days after I made my lest
speech, the Times Picayune came out with bigvblack headline, maybe

'Member that? When I reed the word in that headline,
I naturally thought the Citizens Voluntary Committee had come back
to lite. But when I read down in the sub-head, as these newspaper
people call the smell headline that follows the big hne adress the
top of the page, Lo and Behold! There it was! Big as life! A. of
C., that'e the Association of Commerce, A. of C. urges fair poll.
12 point plan. Not the Citizens Committee,'not the devote Citizens
Voluntary Committee, but the A. of C. They had decided to take up
the battle, and being takers like they are, they dldn't want to quit
altogether, so they figured they'd get rid of the Citizens Voluntary
Committee name and get a new old one, like the Association of Com-
merce. Now.,, Assassination of Commerce urges fair poll, 12 point
plan.
Now, here's where I'm going to prove to you my friends,
that the members of the no: defunct Citizens Voluntary Committee,
and the members of the Association of Commerce, are the same identi-
cal people, the same corporation lawyers, the same bluebloods, the
same representatives of the special interests. I've got before me
here, gimme that red book, get before me here the Redbook of New Or-
leans, Commerce and membership directory of the New Orleans Associa-
tion of Commerce. show the people in the room, so they'll know
l'm not faking on this. Now, I've also got right here the list of
members of the Citizens Voluntary Committee of Louisiana and I'm
holding it up so everybody can see, as originally published in the
Times-Picayune. That's a list of members of the Citizens Voluntary
Committee, and that's a list of members of Association of Com erce.
l'm going to show you that the members of the Association of Commerce
were the members of the Citizens Voluntary Committee, and the members
of the Citizens Voluntary Committee are the members of the Associa-
tion of Commerce.
Now, I can't take up all my tins here comparing_these
lists on every name, but I'm going to take enough of them at random,
to show you that the Citizens Voluntary Committee now deceased, hav-
ing been unable to survive a barrage or truth, is the Association of
Commerce with a mask on its face. Same name, some members, some
gang of high binding corporation lawyers, bankers and millionaires
aided and abetted by the lying newspapers, try to take Louisiana's
Government away from its people. 3'
Alright, let's look these two membership lists, let's
just skip around here and the _on these lists. One, the Citizens
Voluntary Committee of.louis ina, now defunct, the other, the Associa
tion of Commerce, now for the newspapers and corporate in-
terests. I'll just at random. Here's HUGH I got

B. S. WILLIAMS, GEORGE S. CLARK, - but what's the
use? Don't you know by this time that practically every blessed
member of the Ex-Citizens Voluntary Committee of louisiana, that was
raising so much fuss in the newspapers week ego, don't you know
that every blessed member of that outfit is member of the Associa-
tion of Commerce, which from.now on is going to do the fussing for the
newspepere end the corporation lawyers. And if we spoke out about that
old enemy of the pople of Louisiana, and make that Association of Com~
merce fold up like its deceased sister, and the Citizens Voluntary
Committee did, why just es sure as you're born they'1l be beckwnith a
new name. Some league, or committee or association for the saving of
the poor people of the State of Louisiana.
Now, these high collar boys are resourceful alright, I
noticed in the Times Piceyune lest Saturday in the some issue that was -
headlined DEMAND CLEANUP OF they heve organized them

tion, according to the Times Piceyune, of young business end profession-
al men of How Orleans. I guess they figure this young budding outfit
will grow up and inherit the parent outfit's monoply on forming associa-
tions end leagues, for the purpose of trying to run Louisiana for the
people, without bothering to be elected to public office.
What democratic gathering! what representative body.
How accurately it reflects public opinion. Bankers, brokers, corpora-
tion lawyers, cotton and stock exchange gamblers, but not single soli-
tary representative of organized lebor. Not single solitary men from
the ranks of the leboring men end women. Why? ls it because a hand
callous is not equal in dignity to the heart celloused by
greed and inhunenity? Do you_think, you high and mighty Larks of Nammon
that the men end women whose ingenuity and industry give all that there
is of yelue to our very articles of commerce, lack the intelligence to
fit into your councils? These are the people who delve into your mines
and bring to the merts of commerce the minerals, the people who fell

greater right then they to say how this Government is run? Why do you
ignore, you of both character end commerce, why do you
ignore the smell independent business men, the corner grocer. Oh, they

lunch. For the next two weeks he must necessarily depend upon the
neighborly, kindly, humane little corner grocer. 'lf one of his kids
gets sick, he has his friend the little corner druggist to fall back
on. If his money runs short when the kids' shoe soles get thin, his
children needn't go barefooted until next payday, because there stands
his friend, the little Borner shoe merchant who will trust h1m.a,paye
car. _e   Q,

1
But what would you rich men know about all that? I know
about it! I've been through it myself! Let us suppose that_th1S poor
nan walked into ST sir million dollar store and said "Trust no
until payday, my little fe1low's toes are coming through his shoes."
what do you think STARBY would say? believe I know what'd he
say. "See our Credit Manager, and if the Credit Associations, after
looking up your rating for a few days, adviseme that you are a safe
credit risk, it's alright with me for you to get a three dollar pair
of shoes". Let us suppose that a poor man found himself in trouble
at some time, and he went to seek the advice of a lwyer like ELDGN
LAZARUS. Suppose he told LAZARUS, "Hy need for legal advice is urgent,
but I don't get paid until next Saturday what do you think
he'd say? You think he'd say as you and I would say, "That's alright
my friend, just pay me when and if it's convenient to you, and if you
never pay me, thet's alright too". Aw, he wouldn't! He'd freeze up
with a man like ELDON LAZARUS. He*d probably have that poor man thrown
out of his office because he's not interested in poor men and their
problems. His god is money! Money and more money! A man like ELDON
LAZARUS aneers on that poor people. What doesihis kind of people know
about the way the poor man and his fmnily live? Yet these little mer-
chants sho do such good for the people of a community are considered
too inconsequential and too insignificant to sit and advise in the
councils of the mighty rich. They're ignored by the Qrtizens Voluntary
Committee and the Association of Commerce. Ch yea, this Association
of Commerce, successors to the defunct Citizens Voluntary Committee,
is truly a democratic representative body.
Now my friends, let me make a -, not to the politicians
of this State, but to the poor people of Louisiana, and they're the
only people l'm concerned about, the rich can take care of themselves,
and I might observe in passing that I don't want any quarrel with the
rich, as long as they keep to themselves, but I want the poor people
of this city and state to believe me when I Say that while I have been
interested and active in the politics of this State for a long time,
and many of you who know me very probally think that I am conducting
a one man political campaign, this is apt a political campaign at all,
this is an attempt to warn the poor people of Louisiana that danger is
awaits at their door.
If you are a poor an or woman, if you belong to the under-
privileged class, if you hard for a living, l'm talking to you.

It matters not to me who your candidates are or any other office,
support and vote for whomsoever you please. 'Zhst gs your God-given i
privilege. If any man who is not the open and avowed candidate of
these newspapers and corporation lawyers, and is not supported and
endorsed by them, offers his candidacy to the people of this State
in the January primary, and you believe he is honest and clean and
sincere, than by all means support him, vote for him, I*l1 have no
quarrel with you. But meantime, don't you, for your own sake, for your
chi1dren's sake, for the sake of the State of Louisiana, don't, please
don't be fooled by these newspapers of special interest in letting
them get control of the Government of this State. That's my proposi-
tion. That, and that alone. lf before these troublous times in
Louisiana are over every politician presently holding office in Louisia-
na is shown to be a crook from_top to bottom, than give your Government
into the hands of the tools that will be offered you by these lying
crooked, scandal newspapers and the big monied interests of this
State and nation.
You'll simply be swapping the devil for his brother if that
ever happens. Forget me! Forget politiosi Forget every personality
in the State of Louisiana today! And just look this situation squarely
in the face. You don't like this politician? Kick him out of office!
If you don't like that one, kick him out! This politician you think
has been shown up as a crook and a grafter, slap him in jail, and give
him the same kind of trial and treatment that everybody gets, and if a
jury of twelve of his peers says he's guilty, put him in the peniten-
tiary where he belongs. Hold all the investigations you want to. I'm
glad to see them held. But don't, whatever you do, whatever happens,
never let yourself believe, you poor people, that because somebody else
is had the Times Pioayune is good. No matter how had anyone in Louisiana
is shown up to be the lying and corrupt newspapers are worse. No matter
how little interest in the well-being of poor people som crooked poli-
tician has evinced, those blue~blooded, money-loving, society-crazy
corporation
lawyers have less interest. A man who was born with a silver spoon in his
mouth, my friends, and who has had plenty all his life, cannot feel for
the
problems of the poor devils, whose life is spent earning his living by
the
sweat of his brow. Free school books mean_nothing to a rich man. He can
buy his children their books, and being rich he oan't understand how much
saving even a dime or quarter means to a poor man. So it would be a mat-
ter of indifference to him if the Association,of Commerce and the
newspapers
elected their tools as your lawmakers and they took your free school
books
away from you. But it would be a tragedy to you! A homestead exemption
means nothing to a corporation lawyer. ,What does he need with a
homestead
exemption? He's rich, and he can afford to pay taxes, even on a mention.
But to you small home owners it means a lot. It means that you can add
just that little money to the fa: comforts and conveniences that you can
provide for your little family

Now, ladies of my friends have told me
I'm unwise to take the pphition I've taken. They've told me that I

EFmight make those in political power in this State angry. They say
that I may be criticized for stirring up unrest. They tell me maybe
we ought to be quiet and the newspapers will quit thisadvertising
Louisiana to the world and these so-called indignant citizens of the
Association of Commerce will cease raising cane and put their shoulders
to the wheel and help to bring about rest and quiet and peace in this
State. -
Maybe my friends are marter than I am. But if that ever
happens it'll be the first time an eating cancer ever was cured by lett-
ing it be. No sir! You let a cancer alone and it'1l eat you up! It'll
spread out its greedy tentacles to every part of your body it can reach,
and it'l1 grab hold of every one of your vitals until you finally wake
up one day and realize you're a goner. These friends might be smarter
than I am, and they probably are about most things, but I know what I'm
doing in this situation. I didn't ask anybody if I could make a fight
for the poor man against his natural enemies, the Times Picayune a
the corporate interests. I didn't have to. There are no mortgages on
my political soul. No one owns mr or controls me. If I chose to make
an alliance in politics I do lt. But I donlt sacrifice my individuality
nor my independence. I reserve the right at all times to speak my own
mind honestly and open. I knew what I was up against when I decided to
commence this fight. Some well meaning people with whom I discussed it
told me they're going to say you're trying to protect some crooks
myself. But ladies and gentlemen, only a coward hesitates to do that
which is right because he fears what some people might say. The welfare
of the poor people of this state is infinitely more important to me than
what some people might say. If I died right after I completed this
speech and I had done nothing more than prevent the poor man, woman and
child of Louisiana from falling victims to the snares being set for
them by the humbugs, fekes and frauds masquerading as newspapers a
corporation lawyers, then I say to you, I honestly believe I would not
have lived in vain.
I know what I'm up against, every and evil motive that
the of the rich can think up fact will be to me
before this I Every foul calumny and slander that tongue and
pen of big money can devise will be uttered against me. I'm in for it,
I know that! what I succeed in stopping these power-greedy cor-
poration control from lying their way into political power in
the State or not, such a fight is but a sma11"one to me. Yes, they'll
try to buy me. Now, if I were deaagcgue, as one fine gentleman of
the press called me in an editorial the other day, I'd say they
actually had already tried to buy me, ont I'm telling you the truth,
I'm not playing a demagogue. One of my friends who was employed in the
Civil District Court Building of this city told me the other day he heard
a group o? elderly lawyers in on the third floor corridor
cf thaf building, that they 5 - discussing my last speech, these

lawyers, one of them said "The thing we ought to do at the outset with
this fellow WIMBERLY is buy him off right at the start and hush him
up". Save your time and mine boys. You definitely got the wrong
angle. You fellows think money can buy anything. But it can't. How
do you think I could go to sleep tonight if, believin as I do, how-
ever mistaken I might be, if believing as I do, that by warning the
poor people of this State that they are in grave danger at the hands
of unscrupulous people I might play some small pert in saving them from
that danger. How do you think I could go to sleep tonight if I sold
every poor man woman and child in Louisiana down the river to the news-
papers and big corporate interests when I know that those same news-
papers and corporate intereste_mean them harm. I told you big money boys,
listen to me well, that there are but few ways to shut me up. One is to
make these lying newspapers that you own, and your other pliant tools,
your corporation lawyers and bankers, stop trying to defraud the poor
people
of Louisiana out of their political birthright. Make these frauds, hypo~
crites and humbugs stop trying to fool the poor people of this State into
giving them control of our Government - that'a simple enough. And you can
do it. You might have to go ell the way to Well Street to get it done.
But you can do it beg boys. You can do it. You know what I mean when Wall
Street.
How the other way to shut me up is just exactly as you did
with HUEY P. LONG. You know what I mean. I'm not going to mince words
with you. I don*t mince words. I don*t hate the rich. I don't envy
them. I don't want any quarrel with then, My life has been cast with
the poor whom I've lived amongst all my life, I live on the wrong side
of the tracks with the poor people, and I'm content and happy to live
there in peace and quiet all of my life, and I won't come on your side
rich boys, I won't come on your side rich boys - I won't come on your
side of the tracks, if you don't meddle with my side. These newspapers
brand as a demagogue any person who dares to expose and denounce their
nefarious plots to ursurp power. They try to mark with infamy
the man who expresses the honest convictions of his heart and brain.
They stigmatize as treasonable the exercise of free speech, the brightest
gem in the golden crown of democracy. Demagogue! I hate! I loathe:
1 - that word, and its abhqrent and malicious implication.
Let us get down to brass tacks. I'm used to asking plain
questions. I believe in taking these situations apart. You can't just
call me a demagogue you newspaper boys and expect to get away with it.
I went to the newspaper, I went to the dictionary, to find out what a
demagogue was, and according to any standard dictionary a demagogue is
a speaker, now listen to this well please my friends, a speaker who
seeks to make capital of social discontent and gain political influence.
Now, that is the meaning, the legitimate definition of the word
demagogue,
let me repeat it again, they ca led me a demagogue so I'm telling you
vast the dictionary says a deg 'ogue is, a speaker who seeks to make
capital of social unrest ang"-ain political influence. Social unrest.
There is no social nnresgjin this state today, I know there's a great

deal of high society unrest in the State since I exposed and routed
some gentlemen of~the so-called elite. There is social unrest in the
proper meaning of that phrase, the masses are not clamoring for a
change in the form of our Government. There might be some fellows
who want to put certain politicians out, to be elected to office
themselves, but they are not clamoring for a change in our Form of
Government, like from democratic to communistic or something like that.
That's a social unreet._ Therefore, it's impossible forzme to be taking'
advantage or to make capital of a condition of social unrest which in
fact does not exist in Louisiana. Neither am I a candidate for public
office. So you can readily see that the word demagogue as applied to
me is a malicious slander and a deliberate libel. Am I a demagogue be-
cause I believe in the philosophy of Government formulated and pounded
by JEFFERSON, by Shall I be because
I believe in the grand democratic principle of majority rules? Nb,
ladies and gentlemen! I believe in the capitalistic system, of which
labor and capital are - parts, and that when properly regu-
lated gives to every man, be he laborer or capitalist, a fair and just
proportion of the products of his brain and brawn. And it is because I
sm a firm believer in democracy and capitalism properly regulated that
I am defying the plutocrats and bureaucrats who are fiendishly conspir-
ing to destroy both. They are the demagogues! These fiendiah, crooked
newspapers and their -- corporation madman. They are the conniv-
ing heartless scoundrels who, masquerading as patriots, are resorting to
undisguised and shameless denagoguery, trying to arouse baseless fears,
to erupt a volcano of hatred against constituted authority, and to con-
vert this Stnte into an inferno of confusion in order that they might
emerge the bureaucratic masters of Louisiana.
And this condition, ladies and gentlemen, mark me well, is
not confined to this State alone, but is a part of a free vision con-
spiracy to turn back the clock of history to the time of medieval
surfdom.
Any man or wonen who has ever reed history knows that throughout its
course democratic Government has been destroyed by the great monied in-
terests who reduce mankind to a state of peonage. Any students of history
any professor in the hniversities of the United States which are not
under
corporate domination will verify this historical truth. They will tell
you that history for thousands of years, and I speck advisedly, in China,
in Indie, in Greece, in Rome, in continental Europe, in Persia, in the
United States, in the South and Central Americas, will conclusively prove
that all great social uphesvals have their causitive factor and germincl
incoptio: in millions of underdogs driven to desperation and violence by
the bureaucratic few. =And it is to prevent such a catastrophe, to pre-
serve to retain the cepiteligfic system under which everybody
should enjoy a just proportion of the fruits of his labor, that I so
strenuously and inexorably opposed these historical enemies. I want to
see tlis great in hi in liberty, this magnificuzt republic,

I'm an old man now, reached forty the other day, I still think I can
take on some of these boys who come around me trying to buy me.
Now, you leave my people alone, and I'll let you alone. And
you can pile up all the money you please ae long as you do it as a pri-
vate individuel, but take my advice for your own good, and don*t try to
control the public life of this state. You boys are out of politics
and you sin't coming back in and that's all there is to it.
Now, let me get down to talking about some of this newspaper
publicity my last speech brought on. These newspapers are great insti-
tutions, they're fine, fine institutions. The first thing these news-
papers carried the next day was that radio station WDSU had been
threatened the morning after my speech by some of those corporation high-
binders I mentioned in my speech=` They were threatened that if they per-
mitted me to speak again some lawsuits might be filed against that
station
how, WDSU, I believe, is the only major radio station in town that will
permit broadcast of a nature, broadcasts where politics may be
discussed. So these high finance bandits figured they'd put a gag on
the radio as they have on the newspapers and then the people of this
State 0ouldn't have the truth spoken at all. They didn't question the
truth of what said, they d1dn't threaten legal action against me, oh
no! they threatened the radio people, who are as disinterested in any-
thing else but the sale of their radio time as anybody on earth eould
be. And they ran to the Governor,and they asked him to repudiate, aw..
repudiate this fellow WIMBERLY. Oh, he's cussing us out somethin'
terrible! . we can't stand for a fel-
low like that. Governor LONG said he didn't approve of my criticism
of EUQPHY and ROGGE and when he heard I intended making a speech he
tried through mutual friends to dissuade me from it. That's exactly
the truth. he did-seed some-ef oer~?riends to see me to try to argue
me out of making that speech and the Governor is entitled to his
opinion and I'r entitled to mine, and I think I was right and he was
wrong and I don't have to take the
Oh, but those newspapers played that up. IONG disavows

criticisxsof nni_R333X, ldes were ill advised and bad taste.

getting their pictures in the newspapers every day and being quoted on
this that and the other thing, much of which I considered none of their
business and but a thinly varnished attempt on their part
help the
newspaper in their campaign to stampede the people of the State of
Luuisna-
na into accepting newspaper and corporation lawyer Governme
nt. Those
things are hurtful to the reputation and credit of the good people of
this State. They are hurtful to the business man and the laboring man,
and to the man who has his money investedin this State as well as to the
general run of the citizens of Louisiana, Why only the other day there
was a picture of this men ROGGE. I'm not trying to pick any fight with
ROGGE. Hecriticize when he does wrong, there's
no man in this world too big to criticize when he does wrong. Here's
a picture of RCGGE in the paper, Ifve got it right here before me.
Picture of ROGGE - big as life - in the Times Picayune, and he was quoted
in the accompanying news article as inviting people to come
tell him a bout
graft. The article was headed: URGES PUBLIC TO TELL UNITED STATES
OF then the article started out: "Husky, six foot three, O. JOHN
ROCGE, Assistant United States Attorney General," Boy, don't you know
those newspapers are trying to flatter you? what has a man's appearance
got to do with investigation? Bere he goes on: "Come forward and tell
what you know Of policitical misconduct in the State", Get that, "poli-
tical misconduct", not the misconduct of bankers or brokers or other
people, but phlitical misconduct. Does that show what's on the gentle-
man's mind or not? Now, here he goes on, this is MR. ROGGE talking thru
the newspapers: "We know that lots-of Louisiana people are
afraid", and
get this well, ladies and gentlemen, you decent, clean, honest, good poor
people of louisiana, get this plain, "We know that lots of Louisiana
people are afraid, end in the past they have_been justified in their
fear". MR. said, "However, I can say today that they need hold
those fears no longer,this is the direct problem of the Fed
eral Govern-
ment". Just like they did in Chicago with like they did in
gangster-land, racketeering,things like that. Why, they'd
take you for
ride if you'd bat your eye. And I'm in bed taste talking about sash
a man who could do such a thing that to Louisiana? Good
God, pity
that man, in his med desire fo fpublicity and chesp notoriety he would
give the world to believe th" louisiana is a place where a man must
fear to open his mouth; tiah Louisiana is a place where organized recke~
tearing and gangster prevail. Ehere, to open your mouth against
the politicians means biing taken for a ride. like in Chicago. Why men

Here's what a friend of mine writes me under date of August sixth: "Did
you beer Representative HOFFMAN of Hicb1gsn?" Thet*s home State,
so this fellow must know him pretty well, *Did you hear Representative
of Michigan speaking over radio station WHL, CBS, at 8:30 PM
August 3, 1959? He stated among other things, (this is Representative
HOFEMAN of Michigan, own State) that MURPHY recently sent five
investigators into the Stste of Kentucky in en investigation there end
that they in turn presented return to the Congressional Committee.
Representative HOFFMAN
asked whether the people of the United States
were going to ellow themselves to be forced into such position thet
their States' rights and civil liberties were to be entirely taken sway
from them. So I'm not the only one who sees MR. clay feet.

know, or knowing doesn't care, that under the Constitution of the United

corporation lawyer boys something, you're lawyers, you know about States'
rights. You just let these fellows come down here and trample ell over

Louisiana and her people, that's all we ask. Be
saying I'm trying to drive you out of Louisiana
so the State officials can cover up . You know I'm not trying
to run you out of Louisiana MR. ROGGE. You know how foolish that would
be. Bow could one poor -- little fellow like me run the United
States Government out of louisiana. No, I want you to stay here. I
want you to catch and convict every crook in Louisiana. I hats crooks
as badly as you do. All I'n asking of you is that you don't let these
newspapers use the publicity you must necessarily attract to the dis-
advantage and ruination of the reputation of Louisiana.
Now, ladies and gentlemen, this evening's paper said that
former Governor RICHARD N. LECHE was indicted and charged with stealing
$57,000. I say to you if that's true, if that newspaper report is true
if the indictment is true, if the's charged and found guilty of steal-
ing $57,000 then may he go to the penitentiary. I hope you do put him
there if it's true that he stole $67,000. I'm not covering up for any-
body MR. RDGGE, I'm not covering up for anybody ladies and gentlemen.
lf what they say about SEYMOUR WEIS and MONTE HART is true that they
used the mails to defraud, if what the newspapers say is true, that
that Bienville Hotel was a rotten stinking deal and that the people of
Louisiana were defrauded out of their money, than I say put them in
the penitentisry cause they belong there and you won't find me
criticizing
you for doing it.
Now coming back a minute to these high society
bij rich boys. I think I got a few more minutes. who profess -
to such a deep and burning interest in the Government of louisiana,
well it surprise you to learn that manf"of these boys were not even

yet they have the unnitigated gall to join up in a Citizens Voluntary
Committee, Assassination of Commerce League for the purpose of telling
the Governor how to run Louisiana. You know a fellow like that is really
got gall, he'e really cheap, but don't take my word for it, I'm going to
read you the rollof honor here; here'e a list of the members of the Ex-
Citizene Voluntary Committee of Louisiana, late lamented, out of the
plain old undisguised Association of Commerce who had the brazen audacity
to give the Governor advice on how to run the State when they couldn't
even vote in New Orleans. When Lou1siana's public officials were voted
on by the people of Louisiana in the last gubernatorial campaign. Hot
registered, l935 to 1938, which means they vote the last time a
man ran for Governor: CHARLES C. CHAPMAN, NATHANIEL S. SHARE, JEROME
Jones, ALBERT rrtcicnomna, meer nrxeuao, E. A. fnueofr, B. HAN-

already, would you believe that? Didn't take that boy long to get started
WILLIAM B. HANDREW, boy, boy, HENRY BORDEON, W. S. SIHPSON, JOHN A.
BUMPSTEAD, C. B. STARBOD, HAROLD HAZEN, E. A. STEVENS, CHARLES C. CRAMEN,
IR., JOHN WESLEY COCHRAN, GEORGE S. CLARK, HARULD S. E.
FERRETT, HOY.M. WATSON, he's registered alright, he's a Republican, this
boy's registered alright, HUGH MCCLUSKEY, he's registered too, but let
me tell you about this boy, he'e twenty three years old this fellow, I
believe he's head of the People Indignant Citizens, or something like
that. he'e registered but he didn't say he had any party affiliation
when he filed his registration card, just said party affiliation: none,
So he cen't vote in the Republic and he can't vote in the Democratic
primary, he can't vote et all.
And he's trying to tell Governor LDNG
how to run Louisiana . Twenty three year old boy.

conclude this speech. I want to say to you good people of Lonstiana
you poor people and I*m one of you. That the hour has struck in this
State when the underprivileged must rise and stand as a solid -
against this frenzied attack of the enemies of HUEY LONG. If the Times
Piceyune and corporate interests want to succeed in their bid to regain
power every right, every advantage, every benefit that great and wise
statesman wrestai from their unwilling hands wu;ld he snatched from you
again. Shall history record thatHUEY blood was spilled in vain?
No, there is too auch stalwart manHood and noble womanhood in Louisiana
to permit such a catastrophe. They have challenged us. They, the
heartless demons who hissed at HUEY LUNG SO as he took his flight into
the Great Unknown. They have challenged ue, these conscienceless
creatures who's insatiable hatred pursued RUBY body even into
the dark and silent grave. They have challenged us and we accept that
challenge. Hundreds of thousands strong, way the poor people of this
State take up the gauntlet the newspapers have thrown down. HUEY LONG
did not die in vain, and we'll never stop until we make of this, our
native State, the hind of a land martyred HUEY LUNG dreamed of all
nislifrhe kind of a inns he fought anafbiea and died fer. A is,-ia where
none shall he toon big, and none shall he too little. A land where
there shall be clothes to cover he hacks of the naked, where there shall
