Republicans in drive to fill county ticket With the filing date for the September primary closing July 13, it appears the republicans for the first time in many yean will present a complete county ticket. Nomination papers were being circulated Wednesday for Mrs Mertie M. Huber, Burt, for the republican nomination for coun ty recorder. Already out on the republican ticket are Don Jor ;enson, for county treasurer nd W. B. "Bing" MacDonald or county attorney. Long-time holders of the of- ices, all democrats, are Rosella Voigit, treasurer; Clara Walker, recorder; and Gordon Winkel, county attorney. There is opposition also for tate representative with Mancil lurlburt, democrat, and Karl tiilsholm, republican, the only candidates filing before last week's state deadline. Casey joss, long-time representative, esigned when he was named to the board of regents. County officers serve for four years, hence the terms of Clerk Alma Pearson, democrat; and Auditor Marc Moore, are not up at this time as they were reelected two years ago. It is anticipated there will be no primary opposition in either party and the candidates will become the official nominees after the September primaries.
