But after Monday night that will be in the hands of the voters, gods, arid the election officials. The campaign in this county will be wound up Monday night at Glenwood park. All -county candidates will probably be there, and some stale candidates will have representatives present to give one last invitation to join in saving the state. Six Lack Opponents Voters Tuesday will not find Six county offices listed on the county ballot. The last legislature provided that an unopposed can- didate in a primary will not be on the ballot. So you will not vote ior a county attorney, county clerk, county judge, county as- sessor or county superintendent. Judge W. G. Long did have an opponent for county attorney, but Truman Harrison died before the bullets had been printed, the dem- ocratic central committee did not choose to appoint another to take Truman's place on the ballot, so under the conditions Judge Long was automatically nominated. Claude Bobbin has no opposi- tion for county clerk, Mrs. Delia Bedford none for court clerk. Moss Wimbish none for county judge, Charlej Rushing none for county assessor and Norman Mitchell none for county super- intendent. Managers Hopeful After Tuesday at least two of the four gubernatorial campaign offices here will be closed. Each of the county managers for W C Jones, Roy Turner, Dixie Gilmer and William O. Cue naturally ex- pects to havo his candidate either first or second in the county.

He is unopposed for democratic nomi- nation to succeed himself, 'and by the present law is already the democratic nominee. If he files official notice that he does not want the office another term, the executive committee of the dem- ocratic party will select a nom- inee to appear on the ballot for the general election in November according to Joe.Beck, secretary of the county election board and chairman of the executive com- mittee. Of course, he can remain on the ticket and be. elected in November if he prefers. Judge Wimbish was for many years a teacher before he studi- ed law.

The bulk of the non-target fleet is steaming out of the lagoon, which only a few months ago was a little known region inhabit- ed by a few score natives who have been evacuated to another island.

Another ;t goes north to Allen and ex- fds a half mile .within the city limits of Allen so as to connect with Highway 48.

It starts three miles north of Ada and goes east a mile and a half from the pavement on Highway 99 and then comes south three miles to the country- club corner.

June rationing probably will continue despite OPA ex- piration at midnight tomor- row, OPA spokesmen said to- day. Sugar, lust of the wartime scarcity foods to remain under ration control, is rationed by OPA under authority from the department of agriculture which the depart- ment can recapture on short notice. It is likely, price officials said, that Secretary of Agri- culture Anderson will move promptly to take the job per- haps aided by a White House executive order transferring OPA s sugar rationing staff to the agriculture department.
