(Bassel) Davis, on the balcony of a house. Crowd cheers him. One holds sign reading: "West Virginia." Mr. and Mrs. Davis pose for photograph. Mrs. Davis holds bouquet of flowers. Nominee Davis speaks from a podium. Banner on podium displays official motto of West Virginia: "Montani Semper Liberi" (Mountaineers are always free). American flags are massed behind him.
