BUTLER, GEORGIA VETERAN SERVICE NEWS Georgians recently dis charged from the armed forces should remember some impor tant steps in their shift to civi lian life, says Veterans Service Director Pete Wheeler. Veterans first should inform the draft board of their dis charge and give them a cur rent address. This is required by law and must be done with in 30 days after separation. A veteran has a legal right to old job in many instances, but should immediately make sure his former employer knows he wants it back. Ve terans who served only 6 months active duty have only 31 days to apply for their old jobs. Other veterans have 90 days. Many have reserve obliga tions to meet according to pre sent military service laws. If in doubt about his reserve sta tus, the veteratn should check with the nearest reserve office. Photostatic copies of dis charge papers should be made and originals kept in a safe place. A discharge is the key to veterans’ benefits and may be used in many ways through out a lifetime. Discharge papers should also be recorded by the county clerk at the court house. All military papers should also be carefully reviewed to see that no errors have been made on them. Errors aremors, difficult to correct as time passes. Veterans not immediately re- employed should register with the State Employment Office, since military service may en title the veteran to umemploy- ment compensation if needed.

SWEARINGEN, JR. „ For Representative Of Taylor County p ! A cand,date f °r the Democratic Nomination for Representative to the tlen- like ta tT? m the Democratic Primary Wednesday, September 12. 1962 I would like to take this opportunity to present to you my background, my qualifications fnTrlt 6 ? C ° nC r ing PreSent Pr ° blemS ° f Ge0rgia in general and Taylor Sunty in particular and my one campaign promise. BACKGROUND • I was born in Taylor County on April 11, 1937, and have lived here all of my life. My mother and father both taught school for a number of years in our county and my father has since been engaged in the sale of automobiles and farming. I am a member of the Reynolds Methodist Church. QUALIFICATIONS: In 1955 I was graduated as valedictorian of my class from Reynolds High School. After four years of college work at Emory University, Atlanta, Ga., I received my BA degree in Business Administration with highest honor. This past Jurte I was graduated Cum Laude from Walter F. George School cf Law, Mercer University, Macon, Georgia. I am a lawyer and the primary function of our representative is to make the laws of our state. This requires drafting laws and understanding those presented by others as well as a knowledge of the general framework of our present laws. SCHOOLS: I am a friend of education as I have just completed 19 years of study. I know and appreciate the prob lems of the teachers and pupils. We need more teachers so that our children can be better trained for life. One step toward this goal is better salaries for all school personnel. We especially need more vocational training so that pupils who graduate and do not go to college will have a profession into which they can move without additional training. EXPERIENCE: I have handled all purchases and sales of livestock for Swearingen Hereford Farms for the past eight years. I am a director of the Georgia Hereford As sociation. I have aided in the operation of Taylor County Motor Company. At Emory I was treasurer of Sigma Pi Fraternity and handled some $20,000 a year. At Mercer I was president of the Law School Student Body and of my legal fraternity. My senior year I was editor-in-chief of the Mercer Law Review and in this capacity edited over 450 printed pages of legal literature concerning cases and statues. In this position I had the opportunity to meet and work with the leading lawyers, judges, legislators and legal scholars of our state. ROADS: We need many more miles or paved roads in ( county. I favor paving as many roads as possil and paving them in such a way that they will 1; longer. YOUTH: Since I am 25 years of age, I feel that my future is before me and that I have the training plus the drive necessary to get the job done. I am especially interested in the future of our county and state be cause it is my generation to which the fuure belongs. INTEREST: My interests are similar to yours because I am en gaged in farming, the retail sales of automobiles and the legal profession. I am the only candidate who was bom in our county and has lived here all his life. It is my intention to make Taylor County my permanent home and therefore I am keenly interest ed in our future. DESIRE: My reason for seeking this office is my desire to do something for the people of our county. My goal is to help make Taylor County and Georgia a better place in which to live. SOME NEEDS AS I SEE THEM: If I am entrusted with the office of Representative I will be in favor of any movement which will be of interest to our citizens. We must, however, all work together if we are to progress. INDUSTRY: Every day hundreds of our citizens are traveling out side of Taylor County to work. We must strive to bring some industry here so jobs would be provided for them. We do not have enough attraction for our youth to come back to our county after they acquire their education. MY CAMPAIGN PROMISE: If I am elected I will do my very best for my county. I will always consider the interest of all our citizens and not just a few. I will earnestly strive to always •conduct myself in a Christian manner. I have tried to see everyone of you during the past ten weeks. To the ones I have missed, I apologize, because I wanted to see you and personallv present my ideas to each of vou. I have taken no stand in the gubernatorial race* because I feel that our representative should be in a position to work with whichever candidate is elected. If you feel that I am the best qualified of the three candidates for representative and that I can do the best job for Taylor County during the next two years, vote for me on September 12th. I sincerely desire this opportunity to serve. Each of my opponents has had a chance in this position, now I am asking for a ‘ chance. If elected to this office I will dedicate my every effort toward serving you with understanding, humility and appreciation Of the trust you bestow upon me. Respectfully, ROBERT L. SWEARINGEN, JR. J
