CROSS TRAILS LI BRARY SALUTES ALL NEWSPAPERS Cross Trails Regional Libra- ry saluted all newspapers and commends them for a success- ful week of national observance, October 8 - 14. The newspa- per ranks up top among edu- cational institutions in keeping the public informed. The power of the printed page is great and necessary to a free society. Richard Demonbreun. better known to his wrestling and'libra- ry friends as Dick Dunn, was honored on Television W T V Y in Dothan Saturday afternoon by the Cross Trails Regional Library Board. Mr. Dunn headed up the summer reading program for boys and girls of the five-county Cross Trails area. He was presented an engraved plaque of appreciation. He made two appearances each at the libraries in Opp, Enterprise, Geneva and Andalusia stressing reading to young people. One audience Cross Trails Library Headquarters in Opp drew bet- ter than 400 people. George Johnson, director at Cross Trails, said that it was the most successful reading program that he had ever been associated with in his twenty years as a librarian. A thou- sand young people benefited, from the summer activity with many people becoming members of the library who had never had a library card before. The most popular suit this season seems robe the one with the pleated skirt. This is usually worn with a car- digan type jacket. ® no tal With Doxol you don't have to let 1 ~e expense of buying a tank stop you from enjoying safe, clean LP gas in your home today. ill WE'LL MAKE YOU A BETTER DEAL. i i i i , i i .i - i save on Let us tell you how much time and money you can save by switching to Doxol now during our pre-winter special. i ill i THE FLORALA NEWS, THURSDAY, WALTON COUNTY DEMOCRAT Voters FROM THE BOTTOM OF A GRATEFUL HEART I want to thank each of you for the wonderful vote you gave me on October 3. 1 need your help again on November 7. I WOULD LIKE TO EXPRESS MY APPRECIATION to Mr. M. M. (Junior) Adkinson for the manner in which he conducted himself in both campaigns, and to again thank the candidates who lost out in the first primary for the honest, clean, campaign they ran. This speaks well for Walton County by looking at the mud sling- ing and trouble this election year created in some of the surround- ing counties. I would appreciate each of ya'lls personal help and support on November 7. ! WANT TO BE YOUR NEXT SHERIFF and if honored with this most important office, I will use my experience and qualifica- tions to try and solve the murder case in the Darlington area, which is unsolved and also to investigate each death of any person which is questionable, to the fullest extent. I will try and stop the stealing and breaking and entering we are having in our county, if you call the sheriff's office, someone will come to your aid immediately, not wait several hours or not come at all. I WILL HIRE DEPUTIES who are old enough and settled enough in life to know what a struggle life is, deputies who have good common sense and if you have violated the law, will make an arrest for what you have done, not to just hear your name broad- cast over the radio the next day. I AM OPPOSED TO PRINTING OR BROADCASTING anyones name that has been arrested before their conviction. By the law we all live under, any person is presumed innocent until proven guilty. I WILL STRIVE TO HALT ALL DOPE TRAFFIC in our county, not to just break a few limbs from the tree, but to find the roots of the dope problem and cut them so these awful drugs will be swept from our county. I will assist and help our young people of the county who have drug problems and will strive to get them started on the right road in life. THERE ARE ENOUGH TAX DOLLARS appropriated to operate the sheriff's department on a good sound basis. I will train an investigator from our own county, or will do it myself, and as the present sheriff is doing, will not have to wait for someone to come from some other city to investigate a crime. I WILL STRIVE HARD TO CLEAN UP the county jail and to keep it clean. It is suprising what a little soap and water and a good coat of paint will do. I WILL GIVE THE BONDING BUSINESS back to the people of the county, so a person can be released from jail without the help of a professional bondsman. I WANT AND NEED YOUR VOTE AND SUPPORT. ! need you talking for me now. GO TO THE POLLS ON NOVEMBER 7 and vote for the man who you think will make you the best sheriff for the next four years. Carry a friend or neighbor with you. THANK YOU
