Decision Of One Of Three
Men In Race For State
House Of Representatives
Cause Shake-Up In County's
Hottest Race
If His Followers Switch
With Him To Thomas'
Support Will Probably
Mean His Nomination
Captain James B. Church announced
Monday that he is withdrawing
from the race for the
Democratic nomination for House
of Representatives. In making hisi
statement of withdrawal from
the race Captain Church said
"Personally, I will support Mr.
Neil Thomas."
Thomas is one of the candidates
seeking nomination to the house.
R. E. Sentelle is his opponent,
and this three-cornored race was
developed into one of the most
heated in the history of the coun-1
ty. Captain Church was making
an appeal for the dry vote .and
the general opinion was that a
second primary was inevitable.
It is believed that if Captain J
Church carries the vote of his
suporters to the aid of Thomas,
this will give the Shallotte man
a marked advantage over Mr.
Sentelle. his more experienced
Captain Church's statement follows:
"in view or me circunisuun-ca
which I will not mention in detail,
I feel it best to withdraw
from the June Primary as a candidate
for the House of Representatives.
X wish to sincerely
thank all my friends and supporters
for their efforts in my
behalf. Personally, I will support
Mr. Neil Thomas."
