Here Is A Factual Account Of A Situation Which Could Deprive One Section Of Our County From Being Represented: The West section of the County is represented by Gene Fleeman, of Manila. He is running without opposition. The North section of the County is represented by Jimmis Edwards, of Blytheville and L. H. Autry of Burdette. They are running without opposition. THE SOUTH SECTION OF THE COUNTY DOES NOT HAVE A REPRESENTATIVE. This situation was created when the Representative from the South section of the County moved out of the state. I am running for Representative, Post No. 2, which has always been held, by long-standing agreement, by a person residing in South Mississippi County. This agreement has never been violated. Now, this traditional South County Post is being sought by my opponent, who is a resident of Dell, without regard for the agreement made so many, many years ago. It is not my purpose to discuss my opponent's qualifications, or lack of them. It is my intention only to ask you, in a spirit of fair ploy, to vote to continue the agreement which has given us all adequate representation in the Arkansas Assembly these many years.
