THE CLOVIS NEWS, THURSDAY, MARCH 25, 1920.
he reooles Ticket Mr Property Owner, Mr. Gitizen of Clovis ' You arc vitally concerned, yes, anil you should be intensely interested in the mun who ore selected to manage the affuirs of vour City. Clovis is a growing city. She is at this time in th stage of her existence that is similar to that of a growing child. If discretion is not now used in the manage ment of her affuirs, tho future will reflect the same character as the child who is allowed to mix in bad compuny and who is not Riven the proper training It behooves you, therefore, Mr. Property Owner, and Mr. Citir-en, if your future home is to be a cordit to her citizenship, to support men who are of sound judgment and reputable character, men who are capable of managing her affairs. No other kind of man, regardless of personal friendships, is entitled to your support or even consideration. Your city is just like a ;.ig business, and no man, unless he has been successful in the management of his own affairs is capable of managing the affairs of so large an institution. So that you may know, the People's Ticket gives you herewith a brief description of the personalities , of the men selected at a mass meeting as the kind of men who are capable of giving Clovis a sound business like administration. For Mayor Joe C. McClelland Joe McClelland has been a resident of Clovis for the better part of three years. No person is more vitally concerned in the management and better ment of Clovis. He is intensely interested in Clovis because he is a large property owner. His judgment is sound and cannot be questioned for he has been successful in the management of his own affairs. He is conservative and will safe guard the Tax payers every interest. Likewise he is progressive and will lend his support toward any improvement that will be of real benefit to your City. What better man could you ask for for a successful ad ministration? For Treasurer Walter J. Stalcup You should know something about Walter Stal cup. Mr. Stalcup cume to Clovis in 1015 and was employed by the Barry Hardware Company for whom he worked until May 1917. When war was declared and the call mure for volunteers he was the third man in Curry County to offer his ser vices in the fight against Germany. He saw service in France and did not return from there until after the war. On his return he was re-employed by tin Barry Hardware Company with whom he is still connected. Hit enlisted as a private, was promoted to sargeant, then to lieutenant. This will show you that Uncle Sam had confidence in his ability to as sist in the management of the Government. Mr. Stalcup handles thousands of dollars each month for the Barry Hardware and Is qualified to handle the trcasurership of the City of Clovis in a capable manner. He is a rare find and is entitled to the support of every property owner and citizen. At the present time Mr. Stalcup is the Post Adjutant . and financial secretary of tho Curry County Post of tho American Legion and has the confidence of every member. For Alderman of Ward 1 J. W. Mordecai Mr. Mordecai hus been a resident of Clovis and Curry County for a number of years. He is a general contractor and at this time has a contract to erect the large new Kust Side School Building. His extensive knowledge of building in general and his familiarity with the cost of materials will be of great value in the proposed program for tho build ing of sidewalks, pavement and other general im provements. A more competent man for this work could not be found. For Alderman of Ward 2 I. C. Johnson I. C. Johnson has been the wheel horse of the present City Administration, having been a member of the City Council for tho past six years. He has done more toward improvement of the City, build ing of sidewalks, grading of streets and extension of the Light and Water plant than possibly any other Alderman. His past experiences with paVing conditions will give him the opportunity to render service of great vnlue in the proposed paving program. For Alderman of Ward 3 John 0. Pritchard and C. B. Conner John 0. Pritchard has been (he manager of the large Fred Harvey Hotel of Clovis fol the past seven years. His excellent management of that popular place demonstrates that he is thoroughly rupuhle. Mr. Connor has lived in Clovis long enough to be entirely familiar wilh conditions that confront the executives of City affuirs. And Bhould the Bond issue to be voted on in this election be curried, these men of exceptional good judgment in business matters will work toward seeing that the Taxpayers money is wisely, well and honestly spent. For Alderman of Ward 4 E. T. Jernigan Mr. Jernigan is the present Alderman from Ward No 4. He has been in business in Clovis for nine vears. The successful operation of his own business 'and his past performance as an Alderman demon strate that he is qualified and competsnt to render tho city an excellent service.
