PAGE EIGHT THE LONG ISLAND TRAVBLUt THURSDAY/AUGUST 15, 1940 ELWOOD EAGERLY AWAITS WILLKIE Rfpablican Candld«te To Aeecpt NomfawtioiiAt Sawood^lndianli^ AflHd Bojrho^ M wmi I mi VUlki* wave to a throng of cheering admirers. ELWOOD, INDIANA.—The tou- •led-haired boy who used to drive eowi through old Joe deHprity’s woods for 76 cents s week will come back Saturday, August 17th, to accept the Republican nomina ­ tion for President of the United States. Wendell Willkie, who made good in a rough and tumble world, chose the site of his boyhood memories to tell a waiting nation of his phi ­ losophies and beliefs on the funda ­ mentals of American Democracy. Beside him wiU be Mrs. Willkie, who was assistant librarian in the Elwood Public Library when they were married, just before Wendell Willkie marched off to iight in the World War. The Elwood he'will come back to this time won't be unfamiliar to him. He spent the grer.t-rr part of twenty-seven years here, and he probably can call by their first names most of the middle-aged folk he will meet along the streets. Memory no doubt gi him in choosing a Saturday to make his »cce?tance speech. F- : i^rday^is still the time when !Bl%vocd turns out en masse. Not only the townspeople, but the farm ­ ers from close around go down ­ town on business or just to see what’s poing on. Anderson Street, the W' u thoroughf: is lined with cars and its sidewalks are crowded with people. There are crowds in the drug stores, laugh ­ ing, joking, discussing. There are forums on the sidewalk in front of the First National Bank and the Citizens Bank; other forums in the lobbies of the Sidwell Hotel and Callaway House. Talking politics mostly, nowadays. Elwood Waits With Pride The plain folks of Elwood are waiting with eager pride for the triumphant return of the native son. They are fully ready to show all who come here just how deep that pride is. Streets have been cleaned, houaes and store fronts re ­ painted, tumble-down buildings re ­ moved and larmis and flower beds have been sprucad up. First, Mr. Willkie wi)1 receive a hearty handclasp of welcome from old friends on the steps of the El ­ wood High School, from which.he graduated in 1910. He had intended to deliver ti'sre his speech of ac ­ ceptance of the nominBtion, but it soon became evlc’.snt that thousands of admirers v/oi.ld trek to tliis typi ­ cal middle We.ttcrn town of 12,000 persons to glimp:;e ai'.d hear the man who next January is e::pected to pass through the doors of the White Houae. Plans for IioIdi;i~ t!ic entire cere ­ mony of accept:.r:ca in the limited area of the High School were quick ­ ly revised and Mr, Willkie will de ­ liver his speech of acceptance in the. old grove of his boyhood, now known as C:.i v.vay ra: '-. Representative Joseph W, Mar ­ tin, Jr., of Massachusetts, Chair ­ man of the Republican National C/immittTO, vi'in formallly notify Mr. Willkie of the action of the International Newt SerrlM Photoi« Republican Convention in Phi]itdd« phia in choosing him as the Pa^^i standard-bearer. More than three More PM id trains have been arranged to cany visitors from such distant points as New York, New Orleans and tiM West. Many others will com* l>y automobile. In this latter group will be farmers and their familiM who are Willkia's \neighbors\ at nearby Rushville, where the candi« date prides himself in the well* tilled acres of his own fam r lands. Unique Event Plamsd The decision to return for tlM event aniong the people with whom he grew to early manhood is as unorthodox, unconventional and unique as Mr. Willkie’s whole ex< cursion into politics. Those who know him best expect none of th« usual hackneyed words of a poli« tician, nor do they expect any flag» waving Fourth of July speech. They say Mr. Willkie will deliver a forthright declaration of prin« ciples which will specifically join the issues of the caimpaign. The formal ceremonies will be broadcast by the Columbia, Mutual and National networks and Station WLW, Cincinnati, beginning at 3:15 P. M., Eastern Standard Time, with the welcoming on the High School steps. The speech of ac« ceptance will be broadcast at 4 P. M., Eastern Standard Time, from Callaway Park. There will be other broadcasts incidental to the event during the day. : FOR SALE AUT08 A I L BB OS .
