Mrs. Stassen backs Dewey

St. Paul, Minnesota (UP) –
Mrs. Harold E. Stassen, wife of Minnesota’s former governor, today urged the election of Governor Thomas E. Dewey and his running mate, Governor John W. Bricker, because they “have a far better chance to solve the vital problems of peace than the present administration.”

Mrs. Stassen said.

No President can succeed in creating unity and harmony in world affairs unless he can first create unity and harmony at home.

Every mother knows that the family which has harmony, unity and cooperation within the four walls of the home has the basis of friendly relations with the neighbors.

Mrs. Stassen’s husband is serving in the Pacific as a commander in the Navy.
