J. \YillisiRliam & Family Ma WAYNE —PLUS— There are some 6000 (six-thousand) qualified voters in the city limits of Blytheville. Blytheville for the first time holds the key to the political Mississippi County. I am a citizen of this great city and have been for nearly 20 years. • In fact I am your neighbor. As you know I am one of three candidates seeking the office of County Judge. Being the only candidate from Blytheville in this rade, I am hewing my home town will give me it's strong support. I don't believe nnj^ one can question my ability. I am 43 years old. I am a University graduate with a degree in law. I have been in the active practice of law for nearly 20 years, except the 4 years I spent in the Army during World War II. And I might mention, for' what it is worth, I am the only candidate for County Judge who is a Veteran. Next Tuesday, the 29th of July, is an election day. Every one who Is qualified should vote. Like millions of veterans, we helped to preserve this right for you. However, we have a political Boss in this County who lives at Wilson, Arkansas, who sneers at the honest voter. A vote to him, is something that can be bought and sold. He, however enjoys the benefits and protection of our laws which permits him to own property; permits him the freedom of speech, and permits him to choose the Church of his own choice. The honest votes give him these rights. However, he does not want me in the office of County Judge, because he knows I believe that a public office is a public trust. He knows I will not bow and stoop to hia commands. He knows that this is the end of his control of the purse strings of the County if 1 am the next County Judge. I ran for this office in 19-16, when I first cainc out of the service, and you people of Blytheville honored me at that time by giving me the Majority vote here in Blytheville. Blytheville now has three limes more '[iiiilil'ied voters and the Political Machine is frantic. If the candidate from \Vil?on (Mr. Political Boss' Candidate) is your next County Judge, you can rest assured the political boss will continue to control the purse strings of the county for his own selfish purposes. WHICH UO YOU WANT niATHEVlM.K? WHICH 00 YOU WANT MR. VOTER? IS A PUBLIC OFFICE A PUBLIC TRUST? In closing, my Jo-year-old daughter, Milly Ann, my 20-months old son, Johnny, Mrs. Bradley and myself hope you will give us your support Tuesday. Yours truly, Gene Bradley Candidate for County Judge.
