RAY, 33, DIES AT CANE HILL The Stilwell school board Thursday apparently had won its' month-long fight with the NYA and Nichols patronage bosses when it became- known that 'Lace, Rector, supervisor on the $6000 school building near the high school, would be transferred to another position March 14. The school board wil name the man to take his place. The controversy developed several weeks ago when NYA officials announced that Rector, a resident of Wesfville, had been appointed supervisor. The majority of the school board, Walter Fleming and Mrs. J. E. Burnett, said that they were not consulted about the appointment and as the supervisor was spending $2100 of the school board's and county's money, they thought they should have a part in naming him. Abe Allison, druggist and pre-sideht!of the school board, sided with the NYA and representatives of Nichols, who undertook to take a part in naming the supervisor. After learning the details o f the controversy, Nichols, in a letter to Walter Fleming, took the side of the majority of the school board and had the Rector appointment rescinded. Interest in the "fighf , has been intense with the majority of the townspeople siding -writh Walter Fleming and Mrs. Burnett. It was repeatedly asserted that there was nb personal objection to Rector's appointanent, intfthe sehoot bota^ ^belleiy ttnly because of the ^Dictatorial William E.

ALLEN TO PREACH Although many younger A-dair countians are aspiring to political office, there is a strong timidity about annoucing this year observers declare as the filing time for both county and state offices draws near. The filing period for county offices opens April }3 and closes May 28. For state offices the filing, dates are from April 4 to May 7. Numerous county officials have indicated that they will seek reelection but few "outs" have indicated that they w#l et in. Bill Barker, former iff, reputedly is in the race for county commissioner against' Ora Gordon iw-dfttrie* two. So far these are the only two men n this race. - Bill Langley^iWho will again run for county treasurer, - has drawn no opposition so far. Nor has J. W. Ferguson* .sheriff* who will run for a second term. There has been ; talk of Mose Orittenden, early day sheriff, running against Ferguson but this- is uwonfinaedw: i Court Clerk Jum Dannenberg has drawn one opponent, Buefc Smith, son of George Smith, |f�roier political figure- in thi^ county. No one has definitelysan- ^ nounced for the county clerk job, naw held by George Waw*09^ but it is certain that an an� nouncement will he made in .^Byte race. * ^ George Hagan has as: v yet drawn no -opposition for. the county superintendency but t|us , is another race, hi which there rwill bejopp^sition to the ineiim- ing. of ..running but none liave-definitely announced; ' ' ' Harry Winsor, county judge, may. not draw an opponent in the democratic primary. He has announced for his^ second term. Political observers deem it unlikely that Wayne Hopkins, county assessor, will have au opponent in the primary. Hopkins, seeking a second term, has proven a formidable vote getter and aspirants for county, offices' are shying* away from his, job. Qounty Attorney E. G. Carroll it now appears may not.have any opposition in the primary. If this develops, it isn't likely that Carroll will draw, an opponent in the, general election. In the north end commissioner's race, incumbent John McQu-istion may draw an opponent. Walter Graft, former bank'em'-ployee,.may. run against, hhn, G. W.
