tomobile contest has narrowed
down to the point where only the
'live ones" remain, all of whom
are going at top speed to get their
subscriptions in before the close
of the contest at midnight, Tues
day, March 20.
Such tremendous enthusiasm
and energy was never before seen
in thi3 district as is being shown
on the last lap of this great race
for the very valuable prizes. There
seems to be no limit to the pep
each candidate has stored up for
the finish, which is but three days
away. Candidates who have for
merly been the hardest workers
are still going at it as if they had
saved all their energy for the big
finish. This indicates that every
live wire candidate on the list has
plenty of fight left: it also shows
that the candidates who look
"harmless" now will be among the
strongest when the end comes.
This much . is likely, however,
that whoever wins any of these
prizes probably will do so by a
very narrow margin, though the
winning score will probably ; be
large. If the present leaders are
