maii who says lie dlett'''t h1.ao to work
will have a unifori on him before the
water gets hot."
The speaker discussed the situation
from the, viewpoint of sPecific intsanc
es and touched upon stores of vari
ous kinds. le pointed out that a
great many varieties of work, Includ
ing clerking In stores, now done by
men, could Ie to a vory large extent
done by women, and( he declared that
I this change must be inade. lie urged
the storekoepers to prepare themselves
for this change by securing female
help before the necessity was directly
utpon them, apid thus permit. their
male workers to enter warl work. It(,
declared that If stores did not do this,
they could have no grounds for a com
plaint if their male help were sud
denly taken away from them In the
midst of a busy season.
Mr. Wood called upon the people of
laturens to substitute female clerks
for iale clerks In the stores. lie ask
ed the ladies to go to the stores and
otlices, and other establishments, and
ask for positions where there were
anly positions that oould as well he
filled by women as by men, and thus
give the enployers ai oportlility to
release these nien1 for war work. "We
imiiglht as Well (L it before we have to,"
he said. '

go, and het intimated thait they might
not then have as free cloice of their
place or occupation as at present.
The small "one-horse merchant s"
will have to go, lie speaker declared
em'111phat ically. lie saidl he had a ies
sage direct from i tle Federal au thori
ties that the very small merchant,
who conducts a little establishmient
with a few hundred dollars' worth of
goods, or the fruit stand or soft. drink
stiaid that occupies a little slit In the
wall. might just as well (lose ill, and
that the proprietor might just as well
titri his Iman power into essential in
(ist ry. The speaker charEcterized
tlese places of blisiless as ''no good
in peace times, and a iperfect nuisance
in war time." The soft drinks, he
said. were using up materials that
were essential to the war', and that
vou~d not be permitted.

Voters and Friends of I2aurons Coun
As shown by returns, I ail ii a see
ond race for Supervisor.
I desire to thank all my friends for
the good support given ine in this race.
I have endeavored to do iny duty and
to keep the best Interest of the people
first in mind and In asking the sup
port of all the people in the second
race I pledge anew ml1y loyalty to ilny
county's interest. I believe that some
are under a wrong impresslon its to
the means' available for road work.
Teio question of road inprovement has
been paramount in this race.
I know that somic were disappoint
ed last year that our road bond sale
fell through but this was unavoidable
owing to abnormal conditions of war
times. Realizing that disappointnlent
would result fromi failure to start
pernalelt Work the County Board of
Commissioners exerted every effort to
get tile bonds off. Disappointed In that
wo have fried to do the bust possible
for our roads with the neans at hand.
The number of convicts on tile roads
has been about one-third the usual
iuumber. Hired labor has been searce
and hard to get, sometimes almost lim
l)ossible to Obtain, an(d it has therefore
been impossible to work lie roads as
vel as we otherlwise could have done.
By adding improved iachlinery we are
as far as possible making up for labor
shortage. but as everyone knows i here
is much work that can only be dono
with pick and shovel, consequently it
is impossible to get the saimie results
that could be had with i more labor.
I tinld that some 1111k tlhat we coild
u3so tile iloney collecItd last year for
interest. on coad bonds, which the
treasurer has loaned out, but we can
not under the law, which allows nonoV
to be used only for tile lpu1rplose of- the
aplpropriation. This could be author
ized by legislative enac(tment, however.
I feel that I can give as good roads
for the money as anyone. If a hun
dred dollars' worti of work Is needed
on a road. then fifty dollars will only
half work it. Your Supervisor cannot
levy taxes. If you want more work
on the roads ask your legislative dele
:gationl to provi(le the means and we
will give the roads; and as much value
for the dollar as anyone.
11oping that. lie Iwople will all give
Ile their favorable consideration, and
as'king the continued support of all
11my' friends, I am,
