THURSDAY, JANUARY 23, 1941 OFFICE mm Presidential Letter of Introduction BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS [Rotation By Tno Becomes Custom As Alabama Laws Ban Reelection MONTGOMERY, Ala. (UP)[Alabama has its own "merry-go| round." It is composed of the slate ryidi- | tor, the secretary of state and the '.ate treasurer. And with the new year these [officers are beginning to plan anew I for the 1942 state elections. Capitol observers, however, re- I port there will be slight controversy. The three constitutional [officers, u'ho are forbidden to suc- ecl themselves, merely trade of- fficcs, hence the "merry-go-round." Here's the way it goes "round": In 1938, Alabama voters named John Brandon as secretary of state; Charles E. McCall as state treasurer; and How-ell Turner a.s [state auditor. Service Be^an in l'.)2fi Brandon previously .served a.s I follows: In 1926, secretary cl state: Jin 1930, state auditor; in 1934. [state treasurer; In 1938. .secretary ]oi state once more. Turner in 1934 was elected sec|'rotary of state. McCall in 1934 was named state | treasurer. These two officers merely traded [posts in 1938. fcince another trade all around I is necessary, the question now is [which office will each one decide to lake. Due to the long careers of emciem- public service, of all three onicers. it is taken for granted by R. A. F.
