Among oiher obligations that haye come to the women of Arkansas since our entrance into the great war, that of suffrage is ; the most important. For it is an obligation, no less than a right and a privilege, and every woman in the state is urged by the State Suf frage Central committee to consid er it from that standpoint. There are a few easily under stood facts that should appeal to these thousands of new voters in Arkansas: According to the ruling of Attor ney General Arbuckle, women otherwise qualified may pay their poll taxes, without penalty, up to the day of election, to vote in the primary election of May 28. Poll taxes for this year may be .paid without penalty up to July 1. which will qualify for subsequent Drimaries, including municipal pri maries, which usually begin with Little Rock in December. It has been held by the attorney general that Arkansas soldiers out side the state cannot vote in Ar kansas elections, as the non-resi dent voters' act applies only to electors away from home but inside the confines of the state. This will deprive the state of thousands of voters. Arkansas is one of the' seven states where aliens are permitted to vote—it is expected this will be remedied by the next legislature, as it has been done recently by the Texas legtetetwe. These two facts ate furtnar reasons why every woman of Ar kansas should esteem it her pa triotic duty to pay her poll tax and c ist her vote in the ensuing prima ries, that loyal Americanism may have a strong and dependable ally in maintaining the balance of power. New Teachers Elected.

This nation is now facing the greatest crisis of the history of the world and our national government has called upon the Council of De Jgpse of the various counties and ! of tlhufa States to aae that this law is vigorously enforced. This is no time and there is no place for idlers. Our government and our allies need food stuff and these food products must be raised this year. All idlers must go to work, or all idlers must go to jail; and in accordance, with the law, will be placed on the public roads of the country, or on the streets of the city. The public generally is asked and urged to cooperate with your sher iff, justice of the peace, mayor, marshal and constable in informing said officers and seeing that all vagrants are driven to work. Your circuit judge in his instruc tion to the grand jury, laid special stress on the Vagrant Statues. By order of the Executive Com mittee Council of Defense for Union County. J. K. Mahony, Chm. R.

To the Voters of Union County: 1 announce my candidacy for the office of County and Probate Clerk of Union county, subject to ttta action of the Pemeeratic primary. Mr. Tatum, the present encum bent, will also be a candidate. Two years ago Mr. Tatum opposed me for a second term, and he cannot now with good grace plead this as a reason for his election. Two years ago Mr. Tatum made a house to house canvass, pleading with the people for his election. 1 was an official, and my t;me be longed to the people, and 1 did not sacrifice the duties of the office, but attended to the business of same. Two years ago Mr. Tatum had no record as an official: 1 am making this race on the claim, that I am better qualified, a better offic ial, attended to the duties of the office more closely add personally. I was always there to wait on alJ who had business in the County Clerk’s office. Efficiency in this office is vital matter to the peoDle. The office pays will for the duties and you are entitled to the most efficient man. I will see all the voters possible, and 1 expect to make appointments and discuss my record and my op ponent’s record. I will be glad to have him meet me and agree to di vide time. We were both born and raised in Union county. So honors are even on this score. 1 am not of kin, however, by either blood or marriage to any office holder in Union county. We have both held the office for which we are now asking the people. When 1 have made my campaign and Democracy SDeaks at the bal lot box, 1 will be satisfied with its verdict. I earnestly solicit your support. Yours truly, Jesse J. Craig. School Election.
