purpose of having signed the
agreement among-the candidates
not to use money: whiskev or

and signed. Still there was not
that publicity to it that the candi
dates wanted and they stood
aloof from signing a paper singly
when they : did not know just
what would be the outcome of
the same. We understand that
it is still under advisement It
