In selecting Bob Fowler far the

Nunley has promised to enforce
the law equally for ALL the peo­

To e lect Bob Brantley at county
judge Is to bring to an end the re ­
ign of snubs far this end a i Jackson
county that has been the lot of
the m ajority of citizens under the
present Incumbent.
The election of Brantley, like
the election of Nunley, w ill bring
to an end a government far a few

best man for the position.
Fowler knows and like» tne pe­
ople In this end of Jackson county
and under his term , we believe
we could expect fa ir treatm ent.
Carlos Morris for coroner was
not d iffic u lt to select. He Is a
native of this end of the county
and he has shown It tim e and tim e
again by his generous use of his
tim e and equipment. But above
of the many.
Brantley has promised to hear

He Is fu ll of Ideas, good Ideas
and If he can carry out any of
them , the county as a whole w ill

the support he has been getting.
Jackson county elects two re ­
