ever arises," says Alton Taylor,
conservationist. "Monitoring of
radio-active contamination will
be done here with the equip-

"In carrying out the job the
SCS has set up some 3000 of the
monitoring stations all over the
nation. The personnel at these
stations are prepared for moni-

guidance on protection against

TO THE PEOPLE OF PRECINCT
TWO. CROSBY COUNTY
...In making jny statement as
candidate for the office of Coun-
ty Commissioner, Precinct 2, I
want to first thank you for the
opportunity, and privilege I
have had of serving the people
of this precinct for the past four
years. It has been a pleasure,
and the people have been most
cooperative in all respects. '
.. You realize that the commis-
sioners job is not a small one,
and carries with it. a great re-
sponsibility, and you the people
have been very kind, and con-
siderate when I could not do as 1
would liked to have done.
I have no apologies to make
as to how I have conducted
the office. I have done the
very best that I knew how;
however, it takes the ordinary
man awhile to get his feet on
the ground. I have been, to four
schools for County Judges and
Commissioners, and feel that I
have brought something back to
this county that«may .in time be
worthwhile. I feel that in my
association with the court I have
won the respect of at least the
most of them. When this has
been accomplished prencinct 2
can start to move. Fleamed this
while playing ball. You must
have the cooperation of the team
before you can win. I also learn-

For Office Of.
TO THE VOTERS" OF
For the first time in my life
I am asking the people of Cros-
by County to vote for me for a
public office. I seek the office of
county treasurer." ,
The majority of the people
know me, as I was born and
raised in the county, and moved
away for'only a few years dur-
ing my lifetime. To you who do
not know me, I finished high
school at Crosbyton and have a
husband- and' four girls and all
went to school at Crosbyton.
I am afraid it will be impos-
sible for me to see each and ev-
ery voter, due to finances and
illness in the family. But I ear-
nestly and sincerely seek your
vote and Influence, and if and
when I am elected, I will serve
the people in this county to the
best of my ability. Thank you.

All SCS personnel have recent-

The equipment used will give
information as to the kind and
amounts of radiation .present.
Proper handHng-of-a-ny situation
depends on what kind and how
much there is to contend with.
"The earth receives radiation
all the time from the sun," he
pointed out. '"These amounts are
small and of no particular con-
cern. Our interest is if manmade
radiation is ever produced that
would or could be a hazard.
"It is this radiation that we
are prepared to keep a check
on," Taylor underlines.

voters will select candidates by

TO THE PEOPLE OF
In asking to be re-elected to
the Office of County Judge, I
think for the benefit of those
who do not know me you should"
know sometuirfg about me and
my family. I am 55 years old
-and-have,been in-Crosby -Coun-
ty for the past 36 years, except
for the..timfi...Lspent .in„tbe— ser-
vice duiing World War II. My
family at this time consists of
my wife, Irene; our son, Mar-
shall, my elderly mother, and I.
My wife and I have reared five
boys and three girls. When our
youngest son, Marshall, gradu-
ates from high school this spring
he will be the last of eight re-
ceiving high schoql diplomas
from Crosbyton High school. Sov-~
eral of our children have gone on
to college and graduated. Mar-
si all is also planrjcT tc attend
college next fall. We are very
thankful to all of yo'i who have
given me employment so our
children could go to high school
In this county the County
Judge is the Juvenile Judge and
has control of all juvenile, cases
involving children from H to 17
years of age. I belieVe the exper-
ience in rearing a family has
been" most beneficial to me as
the Juvenile Judge. I seek divine
guidance and try at all times to
deal with boys and girls as I
would want any judge to deal
with my boy or girl if they were
The County Judge is also Pro-
bate Judge. I have heard 237
cases in which many wills and
many, many thousands of dol-
lars worth of property and mon-
ey were involved with as many
as 42 distant relatives in one
case. Thousands of dollars were
distributed to them without a
law suit or reversal. I give much
of the credit concerning the pro?
bate cases to the attorneys who
prepared the wills and papers.
In Crosby County the County
Judge is the Criminal Judge In
misdemeanor cases. During tho
time I have been in office I have
heart! and disposed of 724 cases:
