every cart of the precinct will re-
ceive the same careful considera-
tion as any other part of the pre-

the funds available.
"I promise that if I am elected
I will work with the other com-
missioners and the highway de-
partment in promoting farm-to-
rnarket roads just as fast as they
can be built.
"It will be my aim to sec every
voter in this precinct and present
my candidacy to them. Until I j
get to see you personally this is j
an invitation for you to consider
what 1 have to offer and if you!
agree with me give me your vote;

or help yod will give me will be
deeply appreciated and 1 promise
if elected to give you the best ser-

for the support, of the people Al-
I len said, "I api especially anxious
to have the people of the county

cy and loyalty as a public servant.
