under Sheriff Charles Ingram for six years
I am 46 years old. I served as a deputy
and during that time ,was very active in per
forming the duties required of me. I can
truthfully say that during that time I favored
no individual but undertook to carry out my
duties impartially and with a view to keep
ing d(v)wn criminal offenses. 1 have no hesi
tancy to say that I will make every effort
possible to continue such efforts if I am elected
and I will also use the best judgment possible
in selecting deputy sheriffs to serve under me.
I have been a lifelong Democrat as have
been my people before me. In the event I am
elected I shall continue such party affiliation
and if I am not successful in securing the
nomination I will give all my support to the
nominee of my party in the general election.
I would like to see and talk to every man
and woman in the County but that is impos
sible. I will try to see as many as I can and I
will be very grateful indeed for your vote in
the coming primary to be held Mav 25th.

To the Citizens of Macon County:
As many of you undoubtedly know I am a
candidate for Solic
itor of this District.
Mr. Queen, the
present Solicitor, is
hot a candidate and
his term of office
will -expire this
If I am fortunate
enough to secure
the nomination to
which 1 aspire I
pled ge myself to
prosecute all viola
tions of the law to
the best of my skill
and ability, how
ever, guaranteeing
a fair and impartial
trial to each, and t. d. bryson, jr.
every defendant.
It is my firm conviction that the Solicitor
can effect a large saving of taxpayer's money
In presenting each matter to the court as
speedily as possible and not keeping matters
pending on the docket and holding witnesses
over from term to term. This. I certainly prom
ise to do. I also, feel that the people of each
county should have a voice in the management
of court affairs and I wholeheartedly invite
anv person or group of people, in the event I
am elected, to feel free to discuss matters of
court interest with me at any time it best suits
their convenience.

Bryson who is now professor of law and legal
advisor at Duke University. I completed my
legal education at the University of North

practice of law since February 1925 and cer
tainly feel that I am thoroughly qualified to
fill the office of Solicitor not only by way of
education but also experience. I have lived
and maintained my office in Franklin for the
past seven years and while niv family is now
living in Bryson City on account of housing
conditions, I feel that Macon County is my
permanent home. ,

He had been prac

broke up to enter the service of his country.

for solicitor who saw service in this war. lie
worked two years for his country on an en

A Statement to the Democratic
Voters- of Mjacon County
^schools, old a
co.fiajlc he vera
state-wide, an<l|
I believe the people a "e entitled to know how
a candidate stands. I, therefore, make the fol
lowing statement to tin' Democratic voters of
Macon County : , ,
1. If nominated And elected as Macon Connty
representative, 1 \\|ill go to Raleigh as the rep
resentative of all tjie pabple of this county, and
will Work for wh^t I believe to be to the best
interests of the stjtitc and the county.
2. I am now ajid have been in business for
myself since Marih, 1946. I am not in any way
connected with any other enterprise. If nom
inated -and elected, I will to the bast of my
ability," represent all of the people of Macon
County without! favoritisip or preference for
any individual, faction, group, corporation, or
.JJonesty compels me to say frankly that
there are man\j things I might wish to do
which I cannof Such matters as highways,
assistance, and control of al
es are, generally speaking,
policies on these matters arc
nined notj by one, but -by a 'majority of
the members iff the General Assembly. 1 can
and. do promisr, however, to work for better
secondary roa^s throughout the state. 1 can
and do promise to do all in my power for bet
ter schools, iit this and every county in the
state. I can and do promise to cast my vote for
a more liberal ^allowance for old age assistance.
And I can and do promise to work for the pro
posed referendum oitA alcoholics ? the people
have a right to decide. .
4. I am told that questions have been raised
about my record at the draft board. That rec
ord is 110 secret. 1 was under the draft age in
World War 1; Never did I ask the draft board
for so much as a day's deferment in World
War 2. 1 was classified as 1-A for a long pe
riod, and expected and was prepared to go to
the armed forces. The only reason 1 did not
was that the top age was lowered within a
month of the time I would have been drafted,
and I was classified as over-age.
5. Whatever the outcome of the Democratic
primarv May 25, I will exert every effort to
secure the election of every nominee of the
Democratic party in the general election.
