Bankhead, long shall he be our priviledge to remember his friendless, and the campaign button he personally ask us to wear at the Decoration Convention, now that celluloid mento bearing the word. Baukhead becomes a treasure, it also represents a lost campaign, perhaps a broken heart, but a sportsman to the end.
