' Are- you one; of these people who cringe whe^ you see a police officer? It isn't as if. you were afraid that hei might recognise your face from a "wanted" notice.

Hamp- ^tfln,> appeared a'; trifle cautious and maintained that if. elected he would endeavor; tq support policies that will give Willits,the: Hind of ^ govermtient the people have a ?!; expect' from the council. ^I^a- :ref.rairied -from saying just, whatikind of i government., the. people had. a. r^ht to expect- His belief that the city should b.e.ruw • 0»-a business basis was impressiVe as was his statenient that he would endeavor to carry out plans where, by Willits woul^ be a more attrac-. live place tq ^ve. If the \yorthy gentleman meaiiit the word, attractive in a literal.: sense, we hope he is, if elected, liipre successful in his venture ^an the firemen were Jn theirs.? Another Qanjdidate who dared to break the'sil^nce and speed, up the tempo of tljie coming election was W. D. Fprdj He came out with a forcible Sr^pciint program. The gentleman contends that he would work at all tijflies with whatever organization necessary,. to set up a f^creational ! program for the yoijpgsters, alsp to .worlt with ^jrhqmever.he must, for the'betternuent: Of; ^¥^lllits; in. whatever- way iticaH;,ljest ,be pcopmplished. And finally,.,someone has dared to mention th« streets. His theory evidently .is r »pt jf or gravel in the ^ chuck hoiea eveiry time it rains and rain, but a longTrange ^street jiro- gram wherein- the outcsoma^ would somn, day mean all the streets> would be in good order, not just some tl»at corner tr.*; a dead end. That point, aloneshould go far toward making him a favorite with anyone .who has been losing their uppers every time they hit a'chuck hole, He also,mentioned pnannual clean up week, and judging from- the appearance of spme homes and business house.s, Willits- ghould- \velcome that.

Perhaps the quiet in Willits seem- edjtoo uncanny foar Paul Porterfield, associate of, the A. G. Xyori law office; for he spent the weekend In Oakland. Mr. and Mrs. ,M.: Ingram, of Cummings-; evidently found it too: peaceful last Friday so i they stayed only- 1 long enough to pick up, Mrs. Tessi Cress and continued on to Ukiah, Wonder U they found anything, doing there? • Roy L .IiBWson might a^ well quit worriring about missipg any excitement and make the most of his ooiJ:i.iement, too..

However, it doesn't make us as happy as it should, for the dis-? covery came . from people who claim that our informer gave us the wrong-dope on March 24 in regards to the suit against a local beauty salon; Despite what we were told, and trustingly wrqte, the injury was not to.- tb^ :hair during a permanent, but the lady was burned; assertedly, under • a dryer.
