The public welcome will be accord- ed the Governor at 2:30 o ' clock in the afternoon , preceding which there will be a luncheon-reception in his honor at 12:30. Arrangements have been made at the club to accommodat e county com- mitteemen and other party workers who are desirous , of meeting Gover- nor Aiken at the luncheon. , W. Kingsland Macy, chairman of the Suffolk County Republican com- mittee , and county leaders from the entire metropolitan area , will greet the Governor whose visit to Suffolk will actually usher in the local cam- paign on a county-wide scale and sound the opening of the 1940 Presi- dential campaign. . Republican nominees for Supreme court justice and candidates for coun- ty office , as well as numerous town- ship nominees will attend the rally. Governor Aiken ^ is a successful businessman and farmer and ^ be- lives in th-e homely virtues of frugali- ty and thrift. He has definite ideas on national problems , and while lie is a conservative , he realizes that new problems brought about by unsettled conditions, must be dealt with new methods. The now Governor Aiken is a former member of tlie Vermont legis- lature , having been elected a repre- sentative in 1931 , and speaker of the . house in 1933. Next he was elected lieutenant governor , and he was elected governor in November , 193 6 , for the term from January 1 , 1937 , to end of 1938 and re-elected last year till the end of 1940. ' He is a past president of the Windham County Far m Bureau , served as a school director 15 years , and has been a Granger since 1907. Born on a farm in Dummerston August 20 , 1892 , a year later he moved -with his parents to Putney West Hill , where he still has a home. His education began in a \little red sclioolhoiise \ —it was actually red. an<l he later went to Brattleboro High school , commuting daily a dis- tance of 15 miles in each direction , sometimes walking fiv e miles to Put- ney station and taking the train , often going the whole . distance - ' on foot. He spent the summers helping- with his father ' s garden and peddling vegetables in the village. He loved to fish and tramp the hills , and learn- ed systematically about fl ora and fauna. He ' s now an authority on wildflowers. He was graduated ' from high school at the age of 16 , and became master of Putney Grange at the age of 18 , and developed public speaking ahd debate in the Grange and other organization activities. At the age of 21 he married Bea- trice M. Howard. Their dau ghter , Dorothy, is now Mrs. Harry Morse of Putney, and there is a grandson , Elliot Aiken Morse. Another daugh- ter , Marjorie , is Mrs. Harry Cleverly of Nantucket , Mass. A son , Howard , and a - daughter , Barbara—the latter a Senior in Brattelboro High school , complete the family. In 1921 George Aiken borrowed $100 and with George M. Darr ow (now senior pomologist of the United States .Dep artment of Agriculture) bought an old pasture and started raising small fruit . In 1916 Aiken bought Darrow ' s interest. Now he has one of the largest nurseries in New England , with 500 acres de- voted to plant and farming opera- tions with products sold throughout the world. The busines s includes com-< mercial cultivation of wildflowers. The Aiken establishment also in- cludes a fine dairy h erd . In 1920 he ran for t own represent- ative and , as he expresses it \ got licked and subsided for ten years. \ But in 1930 he ran again and won . As speaker in the 1933 session he sponsored the worthy debtor law which gave individuals and small firms the same rights to receivership s as banks and corp orations in the financial emergency. He was elected lieutenant governor in 1934. He pro ved in his legislative career that he was fair and far-sighted , and was recognized as an impartial pre- siding officer. A successful businessman , the Ver- mont governor believes in the homely virtues of thrift and frugality . He is conservative , but recognizes that new problems call for new methods of solution and has an open mind. He has continually advocated means of developing the highways , recrea- tional facilities and schools of his own state as well as its industries.
