MS's of Huey Long delivering a rather humorous speech to a formal audience; he displays a grand sense of humor, considering his gaudy associations. I was elected railroad commissioner of Louisiana in 1918 and they tried to impeach me in 1920. When they failed to impeach me in 1920, they indicted me in mid-1921. When I wiggled through that, I managed to become governor in 1928. And they impeached me in 1929.

MS of Huey singing on a stage while standing behind a podium; a Dixieland jazz band plays behind him. LS of the outdoor audience cheering and waving American flags. Huey Long giving a fiery speech about property taxes. ..and the masses of America, 75 to 80 to 85% of the people, not only give up their property year after year, but they go further and further and further into economic slavery. To where the flesh and blood of the born and the unborn will never be able to erase the debt, let alone come back and rescue the properties that they ve lost through these depressions." Great CU's of audience members, some of whom are munching on stogies (cigar).
