Race for Sheriff
TO THE VOTERS OF
I take this means of announcing
for re-election as Sheriff of Mon-
tague County. Having served in
the armed forces in World War I,
and feeling that I might be of
some service in the present war,
I offered my services to the gov-
ernment some time ago and have
delayed my formal announcement
to await a reply from them, but
due to age the government has
so far found no place in the arm-
ed forces for me.
Most of the voters of Montague
County know me personally and
due to the fact that we are all
busily engaged putting forth every
effort possible to assist the gov-
ernment during this particular
time, I shall not take the time in
making a campaign that will in
any way interfere with my dis-
charging the duties as Sheriff of
Montague County in the best pos-
sible way and while I hope to
see as many of the voters as pos-
sible I trust that you will not
vote against me if I fail to see
you during this campaign. I am
making this race strictly on the
record I have made while serv-
ing you as your sheriff and those
of you that do not know such rec-
ord are respectfully requested to
inquire and investigate before
casting your vote in this race.
Your vote and influence will be
