PAGE TWO. A PROMINENT CANDIDATE FOR DISTRICT ATTORNEY In the combined elements of area, population, and wealth, Los Angeles county exceeds all counties in the United States and surpasses many of the states. This unique distinction makes the office of the district attorney in this county one of the most important law enforcement offices in the entire na- tion. Asa Keyes, the present district at- torney of Los Angeles county is a candidate for re-election. He has giv- en over twenty years of his life to the seryice of the people of the county in the district attorney's office, progress- ing from deputy district attorney to to chief deupty, and thence to the ex- alted office he now occupies. His ability and good character are established atributes. His vast exper- ience is an invaluable resource in the maintainance of law and order, and the protection of our citizens against criminal offenses He has successfully prosecuted more murderers, robbers, burglars, bunco men, violators of moral law, and gen- eral crooks and criminals than any Asa Keyes single man in the history of Los An- geles county. Under his supervision the organiza- tion of the district attorney's office has been perfected with a high degree of efficiency. Abuses have been elimi- nated, and co-operatlon between the district attorney's office and other law enforcement agencies has been estab- lished He is known by all those with whom he has come in contact as a fearless, capable and fair prosecutor. That he has made some enemies goes without saying. No man couht perform the duties of his high office without doing so. There are those who ha~,e suffer- ed from his enforcement of the law and there are cliques and factions which, for personal reasons, desire to control the office of district attorney. Asa Keyes has been the faithful ser- vant of every fair minded, law abiding, man, woman and child in this county, and to the active efforts of such citi- zens he must look for the votes and work that will return him to public service.
