Election 1944: Dewey will speak tonight on taxes (10-3-44)

Dewey will speak tonight on taxes

Albany, New York (UP) –
Governor Thomas E. Dewey, Republican presidential candidate, resumes active campaigning tonight with a 15-minute radio address on “a subject of vital importance to 50 million Americans – taxes.”

The speech will be broadcast from the New York State Executive Mansion over the Mutual Broadcasting System.

The address will be on WCAE from 8:45 to 9:00 p.m.

The Governor has been working on tonight’s talk with Elliott V. Bell, state superintendent of bank and a close advisor. They also devoted time to the address which Governor Dewey will deliver at Charleston, West Virginia, Saturday night. Originally the Charleston talk had been scheduled for Friday, Oct. 6, the night after President Roosevelt’s address scheduled Thursday night.

It is believed the contents of the Charleston talk will depend in some part in Mr. Roosevelt’s speech.
