|Transcription||[left panel] MEET JOHN F. DOCKWEILER Congressman John F. Dockweiler, Representative of the Sixteenth District of California, is a Statesman with a National reputation. He is the fourth ranking member of the Democratic Party in Congress, with advanced seniority as a member of the Appropriations Committee. Dockweiler is a native of California, well acquainted with its need. He was born, educated, and practiced as an attorney in Los Angeles for 10 years before going to Congress. He is a descendant of one of the State's pio-neer famlies, and he is a worthy representative of that family, which for 50 years has been prominently identi-fied with the upbuilding of the State. He is one of eleven children... eight sons and three daughters. Of the eight sons, one is a Congressman, one a Lieutenant in the United States Navy Construction Corps, one a Judge of the Superior Court, one is a doc-tor, three are practicing attorneys, and the youngest a law student. His three sisters are married and living in California. Here is the brilliant son of a brilliant Cali-fornia family, headed by Isidore B. Dockweiler, former National Democratic Committeeman and for 50 years identified with local, State and National affairs. Dockweiler comes from a family prominent in Cali-fornia since 1852 and in that time there has never been one word of censure, one word of criticism directed to ward a member of the Dockweiler family. John Dockweiler is 43 years of age this year. He has been a representative in the Congress of the United States for six years. He is able, qualified, fearless and is a champion of the cause of business, as well as a friend of the laboring man.
