Walter Davy Cowan

Conservative (1867-1942)

Possibly three. On one occasion the hon. member held up these socks in a meeting where there were some ladies looking on. One of them asked the hon. member which sock was for the right foot and which was for the left, and the poor gentleman blushed as red as could be, and I am hanged if he could tell. But after all, Mr. Speaker, is it not just as well to inject a little humour into elections? That is what we did, and you see the result. We licked them.
