RICHARD 32 Palm Beach Post, Monday, Nov. 4, 1968 LMKGOOffl a federal crime. FBI agents will be standing by to act on every complaint "within the hour." a Justice Department spokesman said. The basic responsibility for maintaining order around polling places rests with local authorities. A federal law passed at the turn of the century prohibits the federal government from having any kind of civil or military force or armed men "at any place where a general or special election is hend, unless such force be necessary to repel armed enemies of the United States."

We put together a good organization and then worked hard. Being considerate of the other man is essential in business. If elected county commissioner I will do everything possible to conduct all county business in a professional, ethical fashion." JEWELL IS ACTIVE! His pastor says: "Chuck" is a real sparkplug. Yet he is one of those people who is concerned about people. He helps the unfortunate while insisting his charity be anonymous." A family man, "Chuck is a church member, a community leader. A resident of Palm Beach County for 21 years. CHUCK JEWELL IS CONSTRUCTIVE Jewell has a highly acceptable plan to put the vital construction industry on a 12-month basis. This precedes a lowering of construction costs and a savings to the taxpayers. uChuck" feels road building can be increased at lower costs through concentrated planning. Throughout Palm Beach County, "Chuck" has received wide acceptance of this plan from both labor and management. CHUCK JEWELL IS DEDICATED "Chuck" is pledged to be a full-time county commissioner. His whole life has been one of application ... of applying himself to the task that he undertakes. "Failure" is a word left out of the Jewell vocabulary. He will be a great county commissioner. A dedicated commissioner. A full-time commissioner. Check the record on this important point. nn (L li Ja .ilrh JV- WW coy mm Pd. Pol. Adv. by the Campaign Treasurer
