Santa Rosa News (Newspaper) - August 26, 1965, Santa Rosa, New Mexico NEW MEXICO'S BILINGUAL NEWSPAPER ON U.S. HIGHWAYS 66, 84, 54 antd osa SANTA ROSA, NEW MEXICO DEDICATED TO THE PROGRESS OF THIS CITY, COUNTY ANQ STATE VOLUME XXXVIII ROSA, GL'AIMLCPE COUNTY, NEW August 26, 1965 No. 26 Well, everyone seems to be overly pleased with the State Fish Hatchery dedication and the bar- becue which followed except the handful of JOHN BURROUGHS' supporters. When Chamber Pre- sident JOHN J. COURY paid tribute to GOVER- NOR JACK M. CAMP- BELL at the barbecue, the BURROUGHS' fans thought BIG JOHN kinda got carried away with his admiration and per- sonal friendship of the Chief of State. BIG JOHN said that GOVERNOR CAMPBELL had the biggest Santa Rosa following of any gov- ernor in the last twenty years. Since the Peanut King was present at the Chamber barbecue, we wouldn't say whether that was the place to say it or not, but BIG JOHN was right in what he said and the past votes of G u a d a 1 u p e County prove it. In fact, the first time Peanuts er GOVERNOR BUR- ROUGHS ran, he was elected despite Guada- lupe' s vote. Our county went for GOVERNOR EDWIN MECIIEM in 1958 by a count of 1290 to-1205. However he did bounce back in 1960 to clobber Mechem here: 1562 -to but still lost the Governor's office. Back to what BIG JOHN said about his GOVERNOR C A M P- BELL he has really sorta been Guadalupe County and Santa Rosa's favorite. He has carried Guadalupe County both times he has run. In 1962, he ca r r iecl the county 1448 -to- HOG over MECHEM. And last year wow he rolled up 1623 votes he re over M E HI., E TUCKER'S 1020. dalupe gave him Gua- G03 vote margin. So, BIG JOHN was right. GO VE RNOR CAMPBELL does have a bigger following in Santa Rosa than any gov- ernor in the last 20 years maybe even longer. 603 vote margin ain't exactly peanuts. JIM the chief of the federal fish hatchery, told me this week that he had had such a wonderful time at the state fish hatchery dedication, they thought they would cl e d i e a t e theirs next week. I to hi him that since the Gov- ernor had dedicated tin- state hatchery, I assume (Continued Page (i) inary Hearing For Men Wife Kids, Car, barge With Possession Of >pe To Be Heard Wednesday Fneild Still MISSJII District Judge Matias A.
