SENATOR PARB1SH : Is Given an Editorial Write-up by the Editor of the Fairmont Times. Here is a Fairmont Times editorial concerning State Senator Roy E. Parrish: While ws remark in passing that we have seen, him do several things thought were foolish, we ar$ forced' to admire the nerve and determination of Senator Roy Parrish, of Harrison county. This young man was one of the few Republicans in the UDoer branch of the Teirislatura who so braved the Ire or the governor as to" defy him relative to his revenue grabbing plans. He did not do this with his vote'alone-r^he gave voice to his belief that it was retreanchment instead of additional taking of the people's money that was the salvation of the party. Before many days the Hatfield star will begin to descend and. the Times knows of no young Republican who promises to be more in the limelight of public opinion and more In line for public applause than-the. senator, from Harrison.
