Carpentier has officially announced his candidacy for governor In the 1964 Primary. The 66-year-old Carpentier, who has spent 39 years in public life, opened his campaign Sunday In the United Township High School after a parade from his home in which two baby elephants and a drum and bugle corps took part. Many of the state's most influential Republicans were in the estimated crowd of 6,000 that heard Carpentier attack the state's two leading Democrats — Governor Otto Kernel- and Chicago's Mayor Richard J. Daley. Carpentier, the fourth candidate to enter the GOP scramble for the gubernatorial nomination, said his campaign would be based on a contrast of his experience in office with the "vacillating" administration of Kerner. Speakers who praised Carpon- tler af the rally in the high school auditorium included former Governor William G. Slratton and House Speakers John W. Lewis, R-Marshall. Carpenteier made no reference to the earlier entry in'the nomination race by Hayes Robertson, 58, Cook County GOP chairman; Charles H. Percy, 43, Chi- cago'business executive, and Lar Daly, Chicago political perennial. Carpentier devoted most of his speech to an attack on Kerner, whom he termed "a * vacillating, inept but handsome governor." '.'From my position as secretary of state," Carpenteir said, "watching Gov. Kerner flipflop on issues, presented to him has been a most exasperating and frustrating experience." "Gov. Kerner does not know how to make decisions in most cases," Carpentier said, "and In those cases where he has made a decision, Mayor Richard J. Daley has reversed him." Carpentier added: "The people of Illinois are tired of the mayor of Chicago telling the governor of Illinois what to •do." The secretary of state said he believes that he. can offer the voters -of Illinois "the kind of leadership so desperately needed." ; ' Carpentier charged Kerner with "fiscal fakery" for keeping the budget in balance by a bond issue planned to" construct buildings. "The philosophy of Gov. Kerner of 'spending and spending' must be -replaced with the Republican philosophy of 'saving and saving,' " he declared. Carpenter praised the pubb'c aid ceilings imposed by the Republican Senate as a means of restricting expenditures for public aid. He charged that Kerner showed lack of leadership on the question of reapportioning the Illinois^ House. He said Kerner offered no plan of his own, and after' the legislature had passed a'remap- ping bill, the governor vetoed it and put it in the hands of a special bipartisan commission. Carpentier said Kerner in 1961 "ordered the relaxation of traffic laws" with the result that the highway death toll was needlessly increased by almost 400 lives, Carpentier listed increased state expenditures, elimination of vote frauds, attraction of industry and revenue reform as problems not solved by the Democratic state administration, The secretary of state reviewed his record as alderman and mayor of East Moline, state senator and secretary of state and said CARPENTIER ic has shown he can get things done at the least possible cost. There were 30 to 40 legislators n the cheering crowd. Sen. Dirksen, R-I1I., sent a telegram of praise from Washington. Others on the program included Senate -OP Leader Arthur J. Bidwill, R-River. Forest; and , Illinois Su- >reme Court Justice Ray I. Kling- )iel of East Moline.

Clinton Cope, Grafton, Has Old 'Horse Fiddle' JERSEYVILLE - The pioneer horse fiddle Is a rare instrument in this part of the midwest, but one is still owned by Clinton Cope, retired mail carrier now residing in Grafton. Cope and, Marshall, Smith of Grafton were In Jerseyville Saturday and Cope stated that he still owns the old horse fiddle that md belonged to his grandfather, James Cope, resident of the western Jersey County during the pioneer period. The horse fiddle, as it was termed, is a wooden instrument that is swung about in the air at ;he end of a short rope. As it gyrates through the air, the device emits a loud .whining or roar ing sound. It was this sound that called horses in from the pasture in the days of. horse drawn machinery and wagons. The sounding of the liorse fiddle would bring the horses running, for they hac learned that when the fiddle sounded, corn and oats were in the mangers. Apart from its use for calling horses from pastures, the horse fiddle, like the water jug, became a part of the early frontier hoe down orchestras.
