Martin agrees to speak on behalf of Dewey

Harrisburg, Pennsylvania (UP) –
Governor Edward Martin’s office said today he has accepted an invitation from the Republican National Committee headquarters to deliver speeches on behalf of the candidacy of New York Governor Thomas E. Dewey, GOP nominee for President.

Mr. Martin agreed to fill speaking engagements wherever he was needed, it was learned, but requested that bookings be limited, if possible, to points which would not necessitate the governor’s being away from his Capitol officers more than a day and a night for each campaign address.
