("Crip") Hall announced some time ago that he would he a candidate for re-election as Scc- retnry of Stale—an office he has held for the past eight years. Unfortunately a former Yell County citizen, who is now and has been State Treasurer for the past ten years, announced for the same office. Like al) good Yell Countians, we are loyal to our homefolks where we feel that loyalty is deserved, and we regret that in this instance we cannot support him, but will on the contrary support "Crip" Hall for Secretary of State. In view of the above statement wo feel that perhaps some explanation is due. To begin with, we have consistently supported "Crip" Hall in all of his past campaigns because \ve believe he has made the best Secretary ol State Arkansas has had within our memory. Anyone who has had business with his office knows that he renders courteous and efficient service to all. The landscaping development of the State Capitol {pounds during his administration has made it one of the show places o£ the country, and has brought praise from visitors throughout the United States. Folks from this County who have visited Little Rock during the holiday season in years past will recall the beautiful Christmas lighting of the Capitol Building. This has also given Arkansas "favorable nation-wide publicity. Many Improvements have been made to the interior of the Capitol Building, and the pictorial and mineral display in the rotunda of the first floor cannot fail to Impress everyone with the great natural resources and beauty oJ this State.

Saturday That the people generally agree with our views and are satisfied with his administration of this office, is attested by the fact that "Crip" Hall has polled, in his past campaigns, the largest vote ever received by any candidate for Stata office In Arkansas. ' If our former Yell County citizen had elected to run for the office which he has held for the past ten years he might conceivably have had our support, but we can see no logic in failing to support a man who has made good in a job simply because another office holder decides he wants the same job, especially when the iobs pay the same salary. In other words, 'like a little boy, it appears Mr. Paga got tired of his marbles and wants someone elses." . • A Man Is Best Known By the People With Whom He Has Lived . . .
