it is plainly rovcaled that tho real

nothing else to do but carry out
the law as laid down by the state
Tho section of tho whito constitu

to above deals with tho presentation

the organization held.

Socialist organization were moved to

powered to select the service director

arrogant assumption of power and
authority? Is it any wonder that
Mayor ferrlne "Ignored the communi

tho Socialist party Is imulo up of tho

In fact it constitutes very small mi

not because ho was a Socialist, but
desplto that fact. Theru were good

of tho voters electing him mayor, but
In doing so they did not embracu bo

Of tho last parugraph of thu Social

wilfully violating" certain articles and
sections of the state constitution of
the Socialist party, theru Is the only
