HIPPODROME^ Friends who are sponsoring liis candidacy resiicclfully ask your support for Mr. Hollipctcr in the municipal election nerc tomorrow, Tuesday, April G. Backed by a long record of faithful service, as business man, citizen mid public official Mr. Hollipetcr offers his camlidacy for the office of mayor. A resident of Biytheville since 1902, lie has contributed his time, funds and energy to every progressive movement and if elected will give the same efficiency that mwked his service as the circuit clerk and county treasurer. Mr. Hollipeter deserves your support for this office. Some- 1"> years ago when the Farme.r's Hank was temporarily closed and certain requirements had to be met to reopen it Mr. ilollipeter took the lead and pledged all his personal resources because lie happened to be one of tlio directors. His efforts and the efforts of other go;:d citizens were responsible for reorganization of the institution which is now one of the strongest and best in the stale. Mr. Hollipetcr, however, was never able to recoup bis financial losses and this is your opportunity to help him. lie needs the office and will make yon a good mayor. What One Editorial Suifl About Mr. Hollipeler: "Mr. Ilollipeter has made a splendid clerk, personally looking after the office at Hlytheville and attorneys, abstractors, and the general public having business in this office are well pleased with the way the office lias been cared for. "Never before have the records been better kept, botli at Biy- theville and Osceola and some of the linest complimenls we have ever heard paid a public official was when a big property owner remarked at a recent meeting of the taxpayers' association that if all public-officials were like \V. \V. llollipetcr there would be no need for having the county books audited."
