HAMILTON AND SAVE YOURSELF MONEY!
"p 1 OUR MILLIONS OF DOLLARS! Would you trust Lafe Hamilton to spend any such amount in your private buainess?
Yet Lafe, the county spendthrift, will have the spending of $4,000,000 of road and courthouse money, UNLESS YOU RECALL
His palms are itching. There are fat contracts to slip to friends and political henchmen. There are relatives on the county payroll
who haven't been supplied with autos yet. And there may possibly be some relatives who haven't even got on the public payroll to
date. There are friends who have road machinery to sell at prices above catalogued values. There are ward heelers in the repair
business and the supply business.
You can shake off the Hamilton leech by recalling the frenzied financier from the office of county commissioner. And you
can sign the Hamilton recall today—DON'T PUT IT OFF—at the following places:
