This small list published today
must not be misunderstood. The
names printed are just nomina-
tions, and the list shows only who
is eligible SO PAR to take part in
If you have been surprised at
the slendeiness of the list, you
would be even more surprised at
the markedly great scarccty of
real workers. Many who are
nominated have tailed so far to
turn in one solitary subscription,
while others have not even called
for an official receipt book.
Candidates who will not produce
subscriptions cannot hope to win a
major prize. With so few partici-
pants entered and with so many
of these not yet manifesting any
activity, the opportunity here for
energetic new comers to start a
drive to victory is extraordinary.
The vote count for each candi-
date entered will be published next
Friday. All subscriptions should be
turned in at campaign headquar-
ters by Monday night to appear in
next week's count. If your name
is not listed properly, please notify

correction can be made. Also, if
ycu have been nominated and your
name does not appear, please notify
campaign headquarters at once.

ed, are not closed, and neither is
the opportunity for real hustler?..

new. The greatest cash value array
awards in the history of this,
section beckons you.

There are eighteen Churches in

ment, and in addition, on the De-
Luxe models, the right hand tail

tofore included in the total prices
listed but were sold at an extra

The increase bears out the state-
ment made by M. E. Coyle, General

wholesale organization. Mr. Coyle
asserted that the forthcoming new

Thomas Jefferson said: "If tin
people get the truth, the countrj
is safe." During these five year
the people have become better in-
formed than ever before in the
history of the Nation. It is for
this reason that the informed con-
sumers in the cities submit to pay-
ing a higher price for food and
other commodities produced on the
farm, since they know that the
farmers arc the best customers of
the people who live in the cities
and unless the farmers are able to
buy, the people in the cities wil•
suffer ak,ng with them. However,
enemies of the present Administra-

to convince the city consumers that
