HALLEY'S COMET HAS RIVALS
Are you watching the stars? Not Halley's Comet o r any of the other constellations but the stars which are appearing in the list o: candidates in The Herald's $25,000 Voting Contest.
As has been explained before, a candidate gets one star upon reaching 25,000 votes, two stars upon reaching 50,000, three stars upon reaching 100,000 votes and four stars upon reaching 200.000. Each publi
cation of vote standing shows various active candidates add a star opposite their name. If your favorite's name appears in black-face type or has stars opposite it, pitch in and help the good cause. The candidate
who is showing activity desirves unstinted support. If you have not subscribed to The Herald yet do so today and get some of your friends to do likewise. Votes may be cast for your favorites before 10 p. m.
Satuiday, when eight special prizes will be awarded for increases made during the two weeks ending at 10 p. m. Saturday. See page 10.
Candidates, are you campaigning to the very best of your ability? Right now is the time when you must put in your "best licks." With a special prize distribution Saturday night and with many new candi
dates coming to the front in good shape it looks very much as if BIG THINGS WERE ABOUT TO HAPPEN. *
Big Things Are About to Happen!
Every candidate should do his or her very best now. No candidate should make the mistake of resting on his oars at this time. No candidate can truly say "I am a leader" until the final count of votes has
been made and the winners declared. No candidate, however, should say "I cannot win." The way to succeed, and the only way to succeed, is to do what you can and campaign steadily.
Remember, there are six weeks left in which to hustle and in that time many changes can occur. The Contest Department wishes it could have a 15-minute chat with every candidate. As this is impossible,
candidates must come to their own conclusions and conduct their campaigns to the very best of their ability, and if you campaign steadily the outcome need not worry you. The steady pace is what will bring you
to the goal in nice shape. Strike a gait and maintain it and your name will be high in the list when the final announcement of capital and grand prize winners is published. Start today, and June 30th you will
realize how true this prediction really is. !
By the following vote standing you will notice that every district offers great opportunities at the present time. Read, AND THEN ACT!
