PRICE: 10 CENTS Bid On Landfill Clean-Up: $5,250; Second Bid Asked In a special meeting Wednes day night, the town council au thorized a contract with a heavy equipment operator, to bury a large quantity of garbage and trash that has accumulated at the town's landfill disposal area. The motion approved by the council specified that the man ager be authorized to enter iruo such a contract, after receiving at least two bids on the iob. Town Manager F. F. Rainey had previously told the council that he recently asked for bids from four equipment operators in the area but that only one, the Beal company of Sanford, had been willing to bid. That bid he reported was $5,250. The extent of the work to be done became apparent when Rainey told the council the con tractor estimated it would take an excavation 300 feet long, 60 feet and 15 feet deep to bury the accumulated waste at the land fill. Councilmen agreed at least one other bid should be obtained be fore letting a contract, although all the officials are anxious to get the job done. Smoke and odor from fires in the accumulated waste have brought bitter com plaints previously heard by the council, from residents of the Murray Hill Road area, about a half mile from the landfill, (Continued on Page B) ON HALLOWEEN I: Youngsters Can Collect Here For Children's Fund J A number of local persons in- 1 terested in a Halloween collec tion bv children of contributions to the United Nations Children's i Fund (UNICEF) have arranged that such a collection can be made Saturday.

(Pilot photo) WOULD REPLACE 'LOADP ACKERS' IF ADOPTED New Garbage Collection System Demonstrated Here m-icn uucutsion has TaKen place recently over the problem of garbage disposal at the sani tary landfill area, and it looks as though the Town Council is nearing a solution (see Council ttory on this page). <Vnothe- problem which has been on the mind of Town Man ager F. F. Rainey for many months is that of the two "load packer" trucks which have been in use here over 10 year* for the collection of residential and commercial garbage. "They are worn out and expen sive to operate," according to Ruiney, and he is studying the situation in hopes of arriving at the most practical solution.

Nov. 3 Voting Draws Interest ; County Registers Over 13,000 Nearly 13.500 Moore County residents are eligible to vote on Tuesday, November 3, when citi zens will go to 19 precenct polling places to help choose office-hold ers on the national, state and county levels. Of persons registered, some- 1 thing over 10,250 are on the books as Democrats and some thing over 3,750 as Republicans, i said S. C. Riddle of Carthage, chairman of the county Board of I Elections. Voters, however, are expected to cross party lines in j large numbers in some of the races. Interest in the election is high, sparked by the emotional Presi dential race and the strongest COUNTY CHAIRMEN COMMENT Close Races Predicted Chairmen of both political par ties in Moore County agreed this week that there will be some close races in the county's voting on Tuesday, Nrtvember 3 ? but they disagreed on the outcome of most of them. Each claimed ex pected victories the other was unwilling to concede Wallace W. O'Neal of Pine hurst, Republican chairman, and Auto Caravan Set Saturday By Democrats A Democratic automobile car avan will wind through Moore County Saturday afternoon, starting at Pinebluff at 2 pm and ending at Pinehurst at approxi mately 5:30 pm, to help build en thusiasm for the Party's candi dates in next Tuesday's election. Car owners are urged to come to Pinebluff at 1:30 pm, to meet with others at the fire station and decorate their cars in keeping with the occasion, said J. Elvin Jackson, chairman of the spon soring Moore County Democratic Executive committee. They will be led by a car with loudspeaker as they follow the following itinerary (times given are tentative): J.eave Pinebluff, 2 pm; Aber deen, Buster's Parking lot, 2:10 pm; Southern Pines Municipal Building, 2:30; Vass, downtown district, 2:50; Cameron, near the depot, 3:10; Carthage, court house. 3:30; Highfall?. 3:55; Rob bins, depot, 4:15; Eagle Springs. 4:45; Jackson Springs, 5:05; Pine hurst, 5:30. Brief stops will be made at each place and drivers who want to join may do so anywhere, staying with the caravan as long as they can. J. Elvin Jackson of Carthage, head of the Democratic party in Moore, both also predicted ticket splitting. While O'Neal foresees many Democrats crossing party lines to vote for GOP candidates at all levels, Jackson confined his pre diction of ticket splitting large ly to Republicans who cross over to vote for Johnson in the Pres idential contest. With Republicans as a minority of the registered voters in Moore County, GOP candidates will have to attract a good many Dem ocratic votes to put them in the winning column. O'Neal based his victory predic tion on the fact that "our party has had tremendous growth in Moore in the last two years. We have more enthusiastic workers than ever before." With a registration of around 3,500 Republicans, it will take lots of Democratic votes for our candidates to win but, said O'Neal, "We are going to have those. There's going to be the biggest wave of ticket splitting here in history. "People feel the need for a change on the county level, and (Continued on Page 6) Republican bid' in many years, for state and county offices. Also to be decided Tuesday will be whether or not the State will issue $100 million in school bonds ? a matter which will be presented to the voters on a separate ballot. The proposed bond issue for school construction, remodeling and renovation is explained fully elsewhere in today's Pilot. If ap proved, Moore County would get $833,602 ? of which $613,683 would go to the county school system; $144,990 to the Southern Pines district schools; and $74, 929 to the Pinehurst schools. Three Other Ballots Moore County voters will be handed three ballots, in addition to the school bond ballot, when they enter their polling places. One will be for the Presidential and Vice Presidential choices only. Another lists the State Sena torial. State House and all coun ty office candidates. A third leads off with candi dates for Governor and Lieuten ant Governor, run through candi dates for the "Council of State" posts and Superior Court Judges and ends, at the bottom, with the two candidates for Congress (House of Representatives) from the 8th Congressional District which includes Moore County. Of interest locally is that Judge John D. McConnell of Southern Pines, resident judge for the 20th District, is up for election, unop posed. CANDIDATES LISTED In the following list of candi dates, the Democrats are named first, the Republicans second, for | sach race, with "None" noted I where there is no Republican (Continued on Page 8) MRS. GAVIN BRINGS GREETINGS 600 Applaud Jonas, Ewing, Other Candidates At GOP Election Rally "People who say there s no such thing as Democrats for Jonas or for Gavin or Goldwater are going to wake up to a big surprise November 4." Rep. Charles R. Jonas of Lincolnton told a cheering crowd of some 600 at a countywide Republican rally Wednesday night at Aber deen. '?Lots of Democrats are going to vote for one, two or all of us," , U. S. SENATOR Sam J. F-rvin, Jr., speaks al Saturday night's county-wide rally at Union Pines School, urging support lor all the Party's candidates in the November 3 election. At left is H. Clifton Blue of Aberdeen, Speaker of the House in the 1963 General Assembly, who joined, along with other candidates, in the appeal to voters. (V. Nicholson photo) SEN. ERVIN, CANDIDATES SPEAK Democratic Leaders Urge Support Of Full Party Ticket November 3 I m convinced Lyndon John son would sweep this State with out opposition, were it not for the passage of the Civil Rights Bill," U. S. Senator Sam J. Ervin, Jr., Democrats at a supper rally held Saturday night at Union Pines School lM give you my word, nny Southern Democrat would be very foolish to vote for Gold water just becausc he voted against that bill. It may have tak en some political courage, but that is not enough reason to make him President, He has to have qualities of leadership as well. "Out of 34 Republicans, be could get only five to go along with him, a:id n man who can't lead his own party any better than that, especially against a bill as bad as that, certainly isn't qualified to lead this nation,' de (Continued on Page 8) predicted the 8th District con gressman, a candidate to succeed himself in Tuesday's election, Dacing opposition from Demo crat Dr. W. D. (Bill) James of Hamlet. Not only are there organized Democrats and numbers of "in dependent" committees through out the district working in his be half and that of other Republican candidates, but many are "giving their time and energy night and day to this cause. ' he said. After briefly sketching in the "conservative" position on the national scene, and deploring North Carolina's low position on the economic scale "after 64 years of a one-party system," Jonas laid all the well-ha hed is sues aside to relate his recent experiences on the campaign trail. While things look very encour aging, he said, he didn't predict a 100 per cent victory. But he noted, "We have things going for us now, if we stand fast and re main true to our principles. Wo are finding converts much easier to come by than ever before. If we let the dissidents of the other party know we'll fight, and not sell our principles down the riv er, one of these good days we'll find we have a strong party in North Carolina und eventually we'll win. "Because," he added, borrowing (Continued on Page 8) WHITE CANE' CAMPAIGN Members of the Pinehurst Lions Club are winding up their annual White Cane Drive ? for funds for the blind and visually handicapped ? this week.
