GETS WARM AGAIN
Second Primary Between Knight
and Warren Shows Promise of
People in Person County have
started talking politics again and
they will soon be ready to go to
the polls for the second primary bn
There is not as much interest in
the governors race this time as in
the first primary, but things have
started warming up and will prob
ably be good and hot by July 4th.
Many people are watching with
much interest the fight between
Ed Warren and B. B. Knight in
their race for the Legislature. Both
of these candidates are making a
strong bid for this position.
It is expected that the vote will
be rather light in the second pri
mary, but one can never tell what
will happen during a campaign.
Many people will probably leave
home] on the 4th, but they may vote
before they leave and then too the
vote may be heavier due to the
fact that July 4th is a holiday.

Farmers, now far behind in their
cultivation of these two crops, are
having to work rapidly to produce
