two candidates who daily make bold
aild aggressive attaIcks on the chief
executive's record a hornet's nest wits

addressed the chair, the governor's
sulorters had begun to hurl their
desilsive remarks. This was kept up
with ever increasing volume through
the speaker's full tine, though the
mayor of &nm'tter tacked aid shifted
atnd appeialed to reason, all without
avail. Tile badger'ing of tie speaker
was so lpersistelit that the calldidate
lardly was allowed to speak two col
