Rumors Say Ollie's Brother Will

United States Senator Ollie M.

as United States marshal
He is regarded as having the
best opportunity to succeed Mar

official. There are fewer applicants
for the position of United

than any other job within the
gift of the Democrats and it is
said that Edgar James has the
job nailed down. Senator James
certainly has the right to nail it
down for anybody he selects,
