1938 - Party League Race Warmer
It was reported in The Oklahoman, dated Feb. 8, 1938, page 3 with headlines reading: "Party League Race Warmer - Alva Durggist In Contest for Presidency."
The article goes on to explain, "Entrance of a third cndidate for President of the State League of Young Democrats, Monday promised a lively dog fight at the state convention here February 22, 1938.
" The newcomer is Marion Monfort, Alva Druggist, who was indorsed at an eighth district rally in Enid, Sunday. Judson H. Pierce, Perry, president of the Noble county chapter, said Monday that the indorsement probably 'would be followed by the 12 chapters, with a convention voting strength of about 600, in that district.'
"Opinion was divided on effect Monfort's entrance would have on the campaigns of Carl Mossier, Stillwarer, and Bill Huddleston, Konowa, the other candidates.
"Huddleston supporters meantime moved to strengthen their position Monday, when Hunt announced that Miss Mignon Patterson, Oklahoma City, would not run for vice-president. She is employed in the same office as Huddleston at the statehouse, a fact on which Mossier was captializing."
