Letter from J. T. Pinnell to Governor Lloyd C. Stark, reporting that Democratic county officials in southwest Missouri are under Pendergast machine control and that the "office holders have Mr. Billings' picture set up in their offices." Pinnell writes that he believes that there are many "decent, patriotic men and women" who are not allied with Pendergast, "but the trouble is that they are not organized at all, and consequently, will not be able to make their force felt." He also describes machine influence with relief organizations in the region.
