factor in determining your final standing in the campaign. No one
worker has -any position cinched ; . . and it may be possible that change
in the standing may take place between now and the cloainir hour. . Do
not rest, satisfied with what you have accomplished -thus far, for it may
not foe sufficient, to retain your present position. Keep working right
up to -the last minute and be safe . . r not sorry.
' ' The success -or failure of a contestant rests entirely upon herself.
One must! secure subscriptions in order to add votes to, her score and
the votes will determine just who will win the Mg $400 prize.
