Virginia's Foremost Prohibition Leaders Say Dry Cause Is Safe in Pollard's Hands "Prohibition is safe in the hands of JOHN GARLAND POLLARD," says DR. R. H. PITT, editor of the RELIGIOUS HERALD, Baptist minister and former president of the ANTI-SALOON LEAGUE OF VIRGINIA.

REV. DAVID HEPBURN, superintendent of the ANTI-SALOON LEAGUE OF VIRGINIA, an organization that never supported a wet cause, has announced that the League is neutral in this State campaign.

GEORGE N. CONRAD, former head of the ANTI-SMITH Democrats of Virginia, is supporting Pollard and the State Democratic ticket.

Judge T. N. HASS, of Harrisonburg; Senator W. L. ANDREWS, of Roanoke; Senator C.HARDING WALKER, of Heathsville, all outstanding prohibitionists and leaders of the movement to defeat Governor Smith last year, are supporting JOHN GARLAND POLLARD.

DR. S. C. HATCHER, of Randolph Macon College, prominent Methodist educator and prohibition leader, is supporting JOHN GARLAND POLLARD.

Dr. S. C. Hatcher Endorses Pollard In State Gubernatorial Campaign DR. S. C. HATCHER, prominent Methodist educator, of Randolph Macon college, and one of the leading prohibitionists in Virginia, has highly endorsed the candidacy of JOHN GARLAND POLLARD, Democratic nominee for governor, in an interview published in Richmond. Dr. Hatcher was one of the strongest influences against the Democratic national ticket in Virginia last year. "I have known DR. JOHN GARLAND POLLARD for many years," Dr. Hatcher said, "and I know him to be a statesman of high ideals and broad culture. His past record is an assurance that the issue of prohibition will be safe in his hands for he has always stood for and worked for temperance measures. "All the prohibition measures which we have in Virginia have been promulgated and enacted by Democratic administrations, and Democratic administration has given us enforcement which compares favorably with any State in the union. "DR. POLLARD'S wide experience and the ability mark him as the man most capable at this time of carrying out the progressive programs inaugurated in Virginia. Therefore, as a citizen of this State, and feeling it my duty to co-operate in every worthy endeavor for good government, I shall vote for him in the November election."
