With the close of the first period I
right at hand, vote getting is now a!- j
most a matter of hours. Candidates!
are putting forth their supreme efforts
to .win the leadership in the race for |
the grand prizes.
Leaders’ Margin Small.
Candidates who have been slightly '
down in the vote score are "elbow- i
ing themselves closer and closer to |
the top. This is apparently making
the ones who had a few more votes
to their credit realize that flieir mar
gin of leadership is very narrow and
that it is anybody's race for the big
Today it is unwise to take any
thing for granted. Candidates must
guard against overconfidence. Don't
get into a state of mind where you
can sit back and wait for the others
to catch up. Y'ou know the story of
the turtle and the rabbit.
Be Up and Doing.
Not until tfte election -is over and
the gifts are distributed will the real
winners be known. Cntil that time
every candidate should be up and do
ing. Don't overlook an opportunity to
increase your vote score. In fact,
make your own opportunity.
Speaking of opjiortunity—it is here
now. All this coming week andjintil

tlie days when you can establish your

be done. You can do it.
One thing that it is important for
contestants to bear in mind is the
value of second payments on subscrip
tions. In some cases it will be found
that subscribers will be willing to ex.
tend their subscriptions for a second
and even a third time during the
campaign. These extensions do not I
have to be taken by the same candi
date each time but will count, for]
anyone who gets them. This kind j
of business carries extension votes
according to the vote schedule of the
period during which the second sub
scription is turned in. Extension
votes are figured on the difference be
tween the vote schedule for the time
the first one is written and for the
combined time of the two subscrip
tions. Be sure and get all these]
that you can in the first period, or
that is, before midnight of Monday.
Yes, there is unlimited room and
genuine opportunity for new candi
dates in this election. Between now
and the end of the first period any

to an automobile truck and dragged
him to death are made in a report
by the State Board of Charities and
! Public Welfare which lias been re

Solieitor Don Phillips here they
stated today. k
“All kinds of cruelty and irregu
larities are charged in the report."
Solieitor Phillips said. He stated
that he will institute an investigation
on the report “looking to the indlct

| He stated, however, that lie would be
I unable to do anything until Novem

An investigation will be made by
him before that time, he said, and
a bill of indictment against Cranford
will be sent to the grand jury at the

report appear to be correct.
“They are charging him with all
kinds of things.” stated Judge Me-
Elroy. “They said lie tied a man j
to the back end of a truck and dragged
him until he died."
Judge McElory did not have a copy
of the report with him and Solicitor
Phillips stated that he would not
make the report public until after he
had investigated she charges.
The report was sent to the judge
and solicitor by Mrs. Kate Burr
