I served for three years in the U. S. Coast Guard, and in this, the first election since my discharge from service, I am asking the voters of Brunswick County to nominate and elect me once more to the office which I resigned. In order to keep the record straight, I wish to remind the voters of Brunswick County that at the time of my resignation, I was not only serving as your Coroner, but was the Democratic nominee for re-election. This honor was given me by unanimous consent of the members of my party, and was based upon my record in office. I earnestly solicit your vote and support in Saturday's Primary Election.

CRANFORD, MGR. first National Banl I OF WHITEV1LLE, NORTH CAROLINA "Progress Through Service j Member Federal Reserve System Member Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ? FOR ? Recorder's Court Judge Qualifications for the office of Judge of the Recorder's Court include executive ability and business judgment. Many of my friends remem ber that I was Field Representative for the Farm Production Credit Association from 1934 to 1941. During this period it was my pleasure to do busi ness with hundreds of Brunswick County people, and all of our transactions were handled with mu tual satisfaction. For the past five years I have been employed as Chief Clerk in the Shipfitter's Department at the North Carolina Shipyard, Wilmington. My educational qualifications include: Graduation from labor City High School; student at Wake Forest College; student in Commercial I-aw School, Rocky Mount. In all modesty, I submit that ipy integrity is unquestioned and if suc cessful in my quest for the nomination for this office I will be able to command respect that is due a man of good reeputation. JESSE A. PURVIS Jesse A. Purvis FOR SHERIFF I think that there are some important qualifica tions that a man must be able to fill before he is fit to be Sheriff of Brunswick County. FIRST: I think that he must be an honest man, and a law-abiding citizen. If there is anything against his personal record, or if there is any reason to doubt his honesty, people cannot have the respect and confidence that they should have in the man who is at the head of law enforcement for the county. SECOND: I think that a man must be fearless. By that I not only mean that he should be willing to lead his deputies into the face of cer tain danger, but I think he should be man enough to withstand the pressure of people who seek special favors that will under mine good law and order in our county. THIRD: I think that a man must have experience as a law enforce ment officer before he asks the people to place him at the head of that organization for our county. I can truthfully tell you that I believe that I can fulfill every one of these requirements. I believe that if you will ask the peo ple who know me as a man and as an officcr, they will tell you the same. In making my final appeal to you before the Primary Elec tion I want to close by promising that I will be ready, day or night, to go into any part of Brunswick County to help enforce the law; and I will serve every man who calls upon me, whether he be rich and powerful or whether he be poor and humble, to the best of my ability. JOHN G. WHITE CANDIDATE FOR SHERIFF
