The best thing to do with the aoldler
vote la to let It alone.
There are no specially heated or
close contests that from a political
standpoint will drive the party mana

reason why the soldier should forget
local and partisan politics while he Is
wearing his country's uniform and do

Georgia can well afford this year to

The tender of the Philippine# to any
