Voters Of County, State To Pick Nominees
For Important Offices In Saturday Voting
Primary voting will take place j
from 6:30 a. m. Saturday in the
regular polling places of Moore
county's 19 precincts. Nomina
tions will be made by both parties '?
for governor and lieutenant !
In the 18th Senatorial district,
of which Moore is a part, two
Democrats will be chosen from
among five seeking the job ? one
from each county of the district. I
In the county, a contest for the
House of Representatives and a
four- way race for one county
commissioner seat are on.
If anything will bring out the
crowds in Moore this year, it will
be the desire to turn out a record
vote for "Cliff' Blue, of Aber
deen, candidate for Lieutenant
Governor. Blue is conceded to be
in the lead in the statewide three
man race, yet Moore citizens
want to help put him past the
danger of a runoff vote.
Moore's primary vote in 1962
was fewer than 4,800. But that
was an off-year. However, in I
1960, the last year for a guberna
torial nomination, it was 4,886 in
the first primary, and 4,963 in the
second. I. Beverly Lake is the on
ly contender this time who was
voted on then. The first time, he
drew a vote of 1.020 in Moore, the
second time 1,755. Sanford won
the runoff nearly 2 to 1.
Two registrar changes have
been made, it was learned from
Sam C. Riddle, elections chair
man. In Robbins precinct, Stacy
Brewer, Jr., replaces Mrs. Bessie
H. Brooks, and in Vass precinct,
Miss Bessie Cameron replaces
Mrs. Olivia P. Griffin. There are
also some changes in the Demo
cratic and Republican poll judges
but this list is not complete, said

Moore County's Big Three
Moore County lias three good men seeking nomination to
State offices in Saturday's Democratic Primary: H. Clifton
Blue of Aberdeen for Lieutenant Governor; Voit Gilmore of
Southern Pines for one of the two State Senate seats in the
new five-county 18th District; and T. Clyde Auman of West
End for the State House of Representatives from this county.
We can be proud that we have such men ready and eager
to put their abilities and energies at the service of North
On page 2, The Pilot has indicated its choice of candidates
in most of the races on Saturday's primary ballots. But now,
on this front page, we put in a last, special word for Moore
County's Big Three ? Blue, Gilmore and Auman.
Because of his wide acquaintance among county people and
the high place of honor and deep affection he holds in all
hearts. Cliff Blue needs few of our words. We wish him well!
Voit Gilmore has had an extraordinary opportunity to prove
his abilities as organizer and administrator. Appointed by the
late President Kennedy to head the new U. S. Travel Service,
he spared neither his energy nor superior promotional ability.
Under hi.; imaginative and dynamic leadership, the new govern
ment project blossomed almost overnight. To have such ability
and "norgy representing Moore and the four other neighboring
counties of the District in the State Senate would be valuable
indeed. Moreover, Voit s working knowledge of State affairs,
through his past service on the Board of Conservation and
Development, would stand him in good stead.
Earnest, sincere, hard-working, knowledgeable in both County
and State affairs ? giving generously of himself in every good
cause ? Clyde Auman has a personality to win others to his
side. He would be for the county; he would be for the State:
he would be for the good of all.
Moore County is proud of all three men ? Blue, Gilmore
and Auman. It is the clear duty of the county's Democratic
voters to help them bo nominated on Saturday and, in Novem
Finally, we take note of the thoughts expressed 'n Governor
Sanford's fine prs-election statement and commend them to our
readers: that all candidates and their associates, in these linat
campaign days, avoid reckless and irresponsible charges; that
voters make their decisions in calmness and deliberation, rising
above unsigned leaflets, rumors, slanders and fear tactics'
and that, as the Governor put it, 'each citizen will vote for
his choice, not against other candidates."
