Humphrey To Visit Philippi Next Week

Senator Hubert H. Humphrey, Democratic presidential candidate, will pay a visit to Philippi on April 25, and will speak at the Court House around 3 o’clock that afternoon.

Senator Humphrey’s campaign tour on Monday, April 25, will take him from Huntington to Fairmont, via Summersville, Craigsville, Webster Springs, Buckhannon and Philippi.

Senator Humphrey will stop in each of the communities en route to greet local Democratic leaders, and speak briefly on issues of the campaign. The tireless and enthusiastic campaigner will travel, as usual, in a chartered bus, taking along his own small string band and singers to help entertain the crowds.

Following his first bus tours through southern West Virginia, Senator Humphrey expressed himself as being highly pleased with the cordial reception accorded him everywhere.
