The Man At the Keyhole [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 2 April 1942
The Man At the Keyhole BT OPERATIVE WB The first qualification of a candidate for high State office in this year of war and priorities, our waggish sleuth reports, is a good set of tires. The situation is so critical, in fact, that candidates for Governor are threatening to put on a streamlined version of the famous Lincoln-Douglas debates, with several rival aspirants sharing the same car as they travel from town to town and knock each other from pillar to post. The boys won’t even dare to cut corners on each other; they’ve just got to conserve that rubber. Shoemaker, stick to your last. If you’re a bricklayer, lay your bricks; if you’re a grocer, peddle your groceries. But don’t think that just because you’re a patriotic American you should raise a “victory garden”; unless you know your onions it’s a reckless waste of seed. And that’s straight from the fellow with the whiskers; yes, that's right—your Uncle Sam! Father Riker of Holy City, who is running for Governor on a platform o...
