Signed- Gus West Mrs. J. E. Burnett ADAIR AIR Cleve Bullette , Well, Stilwell has finally found some one who can weld its several factions together. The Jones political machine welded practically everything in town together against it during the school vote. The vote, as you probably know, was more than 2 to 1 in favor of the forces opposing the machine. It was a crying shame to stir ero oixKiner, umui-uuui i UP such a fiSht but, On the oth-of Program Committee er nand� nothing is as purifying " 'as a redhot flame and that is what seems to have swept through the town last Tuesday.

The vote lacked only 13 of being the heaviest in the history of the school district. Final count was: For Director Gus West - 462 Abe Allison - 203 For member to fill out the unexpired term: Mrs. J. E. Burnett - 461 Boyd McGee - 224 The excess 10-mill levy car- . ried by a heavy majority. At one o'clock Tuesday afternoon,. t^e^e^Bunrett supporters began bringing voters to the meeting. Before two o'clock, the room fit- which the meeting was held was 'stacked with their supporters. Shortly before two the supporters of McGee and Allison began to flock in and from then on until after four o'clock the voting was fast and heavy: Interest in the election was the greatest in years because of the almost violent fight carried on between prominent personalities. After the votes were , counted, tension in the town was terrific and many fights were narrowly avoided. By noon Wednesday there had, as yet, been ho fatalities. ' The thorough beating handed the .' "machine", which' openly fought for- its candidates, wag vN�E�d with great delight by the toVniipeople.'
