Another comparison shows tiiht 3.000 men. women and children In traffic accidents In January 184B, exceeding the Army total of men killed In action on the Anzio beachhead.

At ^ "recent meeting of the Mississippi County Democratic Central Committee, ii, was voted that in the event Mr. Gainings had no opposition, the federal runoff primary would be made as economical as possible for the county by having only one box at Osceola, one at Lcacnville a"d one »t Blythevillc, at which voters may vote in t'-'- federal 'primary. This Is expected to result in savings of approximately $1000 Mississippi County, as the primary law requires tne to pay for expense of these federal primaries.
