COMMISSIONER DISTRICT 4- RED LEVEL (Pal Pal. Adv bv T. H. (Tot) Maynard, Rt. 5, Dozier, Ala. ) !. /ili '~ YOU PLACED ME MAY Road Service is only a part of the job of a District Commissioner. May I give you a few of a Commissioners responsibilities and the qualifications a person should have to effectively fill this position. Road service includes maintenance of existing road and paving and building new roads. Heavy equipment experience is needed here. Handling of all County Tax Money. This means main- tenance and upkeep of all county offices, courthouse, [ailhouse, etc. Pay Court Cost. This means paying jurors, bailiff, and keeping court records. Pay for uniforms, cars and equipment for sheriff and deputies. Provide in the budget for contributions to libraries, men- tal health, etc. This needs good business experience. I feel that my 20 years experience and success with heavy equipr,.ent, house moving and forming along with business success qualifies me in all areas. I deeply regret I will miss seeing many of you in the few days that are left before the May 30 primary but plea- se accept this as a personal plea for your vote and in- fluence.

Consumers Want to Know by MARGARET SPADER Director of Consumer Affairs National Association of Manufacturers I'd like to buy a room air conditioner but I don't know what to look for. Please give me some suggestions. Appliance experts advise that you assemble facts such as the size of the room to be cooled- the height, length and width, the direction the room faces, the type of win- dow--such as casement, dou. ble-hung, etc., and the elec- trical voltage in your home. This information will help the salesman determine the cooling capacity you need and the best unit to do the job. Then you should ask about noise level, temperature con- trois, and filter. You should also find out how to clean and replace the air deflection fea- tures. Also consult use-and- care instructions. THE FLORALA NEWS - THURSDAY, ;4k~l~ LBWJC Accepting Summer Apphc .
