So great is the overwhelming sentiment in favor of Tom Campbell, Republican candidate for governor, that preparations have been made to. form "Make It Unani mous" Clubs to further his election during the remaining days of the cam paign. And, according to Republican lead ers, it looks like "Campbell Unani mous." Reports from all parts of Arizona have been so favorable toward the chances of Tom Campbell that local voters of all political faiths have de cided to form several "Make It Unani mous" Clubs. The idea met with in stant favor and scores of voters are daily telephoning to Republican head quarters asking to have their names included in the new organization. It is expected that several similar clubs will be formed in many other towns in the state as a result of the great number of voters who are rally ing to the head of the Republican ticket.

Jaynes, national Republican commit teeman, that both Campbell and Kib bey, would csrry the state have not met with the approval of the Demo cratic publicity bureau but the organ izing of "Make It Unanimous" Clubs and the rapidly swelling membership in this organization seems to streng then the contention of Republican leaders.
