The one quoted, by law, was to be published four times to give timely as well as ample notice. It is significant, too, that the newspaper of paid, general circulation is the chief medium relied upon to invite bids for performing public business. It has the double advantage of being both economical and effective. Little Chats on Public Notice Notice to Bidders ( No. 11 In a Series ) One of the most common forms of public notice, or legal advertising, has to do with bids on public works, services or supplies and equipment. An actual Ohio notice of this kind some time ago began ' as follows; Sealed proposals will be received at the OFFICE OF THE DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC WORKS, DIVISION OF STATE ARCHITECT AND ENGINEER, 705 OHIO DEPARTMENTS BUILDING, COLUMBUS, OHIO, until Monday, October 7, 1957, at 2:00 p. m. F-'astern Standard Time, and opened immediately thereafter for furnishing the material and performing the labor for the execution and construction of Air Conditioning of Surgery, Ohio Tuberculosis Hospital, Columbus, Ohio, in accordance with the plans and specifications prepared by . . . The notice went on to tell where copies of plans, specifications and other materials and information could be obtained, and under what conditions. Each bid submitted had to be accompanied by the state form of combination bidding and contact bond in the sum of 100 per cent of the bid.

For decades Maine had held its statewide elections earlier than any of the other states. This gave rise to the political saying, somewhat disaproved in recent years, that "As Maine goes, so goes the nation." Since 1958, therefore, Maine has no longer served as a sort of special political barometer. Under its constitution, as amended, its general elections, as in most of the other states, are to be held on "the Tuesday following the first Monday in November." The first major step in bringing about this change was a resolution adopted by the state legislature. But this, to be effective had to be ratified by the voters. This, in turn, was submitted at a special election. Although this particular issue, along with four others submitted at the same time, had wide news coverage in the press and other news media, it was carried also in the newspapers as legal advertising or public notice. This was in compliance with a longstanding principle of law based on the public's right to know. For this purpose the bona fide newspaper is the principle medium specified by law in hundreds of public notice situations. Westfield Homemakers .
