TOMTICAL .Mn -KltTISF .ArKNT POLITICAL APygRTIBEMlilNt To the Voters of Emmet In the interest of good government in Emmet county and in Ijehalf of Mac Logan, candidate for shieriff in tlie Republican party primary, we, his friends and, neighbors, wish to make this statement to the voters of Emmet County who may not know him personally. As neighbors and friends who have known him for the last 10 to 12 years we •.•{ know that you will find him honest, dependable and well qualified in every respect, to carry on the duties of the office of sheriff. The respect he enjoys among teenagers who know him and the influence he • has with them will be a valuable asset to the office. He believes in crime preven- • tion more than in punishment of juvenile offenders. , We know that in the June primary Emmet county voters have a real opportU- ' nity to nominate a man who will be a fine asset to the office of Emmet county ] sheriff. ?
