If they done to agree on anything they done to the candidates Republican incumbent John Dellenback and democratic challenger James Wear or Are As one in describing the Economy especially As it effects building As the prime Issue. A the tree is Paramount to the Economy of this Dellen Back told a visiting newsman. Jumber is our Industry a said Weaver.
