Congressman Talle Is Called To Washington Washington — Congressman Henry O. Talle has been called to Washington by the Chairman of the Sub-committt-i> on Housing to attend hearings which begin on November fi. The Second District Representative is the lop-ranking Republican member on the Banking and Currency Commi'.teo. This Committee has jurisdiction over all Housing legislation, including Military Housing. Congressman Talle said he was informed that Military Housing is to be one of the first items on the agenda. Talle has been touring the twelve counties in the Second Congressional District, conferring with local leaders and getting the sentiment of his constituents on all phases of problems facing the nation, especially the farm problems. Congressman TaHe said: "Never have 1 seed more abundant than those in the Second Congressional District. Our problem is not how to produce but how to tind profitable new uses votes were cast and by closing time. Mrs. Maine L.

He should hav* got it lo show what he raally c «n do." The LEADER asked the question: Do you thing Mayor Cousins' admenistration has been good or bad? Answer: "I would say Mr. Cousins has dorfe a good job; I voted for Mrs. £avis though, because she's enArgetic and has a lot of good idea's." Another lady said, "We don't have anything against our town officials, but I think it was fun to create a little excitement." The big question of 'he whole affair would have been: "Would Mrs. Davis accept the office it tendered to her?" General conception is that she would have although others think she might not. One man, who was very definite, said, "The Mayor's done alright and he deserves our confidence. One store-owner asked me to vote for Lois "r' 1 I would have oxf>iM that I thought pvery- thin,; w.i.s alrisih, so 1 voted fur Roscoe." After its all over, no changes have been made.

As far a* can be determined by investigation the election- day story goes like this: Several local citi/.ens decided to pick a candidate for Mayor. The idea itscir seems to have come from several people and therefore is attributed to no one. It was like "Topsy" — it just grew up. The idea spread and the name i)!' Mrs. Paul E. (Lois) Davis was agreed upon, as far as the LEADER can determine at this writing. It is significant to note that Luis Davis knew nothing of the activity on her part until lat'' spring and started teaching when Tuesday evening.
