N, In asking for re-election to a Second Regular Tejrm as Municipal Judge, I fully realize that I re-elected upon my own merits. I know that the people, from years of experience, re-elect Judges, who have demonstrated their ability to perform their duties properly. --....-•-..,.... The Municipal Court of Blytheville now serves approximately 50,000 people—North^ Mississippi County — compared to the Police Court of the earlier days which served a town of up to 7,500 people. The Police Court exercised only limited ef imi'nal jurisdiction. The Municipal Court exercises both criminal :«nd civil jurisdicton. Yet the appeals (o higher courts from the judgments'of the Municipal Court during my term of service have been.less in both criminal and civil cases, than appeals in criminal cases alone in the Police Court days. I believe my fairness and patience have been demonstrated to the satisfaction of the people of Blytheville. So far as I know the Blytheville Municipal Court is the only Court of Re'cord -which meets daily (except Sunday) to hear cases in order that every person shall have the right to a prompt trial if he desires. I feel (hat I know most of the citizens of Blytheville personally and that they know my qualifications. I ask thai those who do not know me inquire, of any lawyer of their choice, as lo the candidate best qualified by ability, temperament, judgment and vigor for the duties of the office »nd I will b« htppy to abide by the result. Allow me again t6 ask you, after full consideration of my record, for your vote as a candidate for a Second Regular Term as Municipal Judge. You are the J u d g e to decide if I shall be re-elected Judge and I ask for your verdict. •Sincerely P'-'-L vi/mn ^-~*.- '.,...- Politlol AdTKllsenMnt Paid Ftr fcy Gr»h»« Superior Weatherproofed This Beautiful Home, located at 300 East Kentucky Street, owned by Mr. Charlie Partlow, was Weather- Proofed, Insulated and Beautified by 535 North 6th St. Phone 2350 Blytheville
