Tells Carter What
He Thinks About
trom person to person and from
house to house appealing for an ap-
proval for my candidacy or to vouch
for my integrity and honor. It is
my observation that but few have
the heart to refuse to sign such a
paper when presented by the proper
person, with the proper appeal, and
that a large per cent of those who
sign do so with mental reservation
to act and vote as they please w hen
the proper time arrives. The com
memlation of the "Ministers" a.- set
forth in my opponents circulars may
be somewhat misleading unless it is
known, that all the ministers of
Purcell and vicinity did not J n and

time Miss Northcutt had been prin-1

She was born in Alabama, and is

And she does not seek the olfice i
''ecatise she is a woman.
I timing to her announcement in
her first campaign, we find she said:
"I ask and desire the strict'st in-
vestigation into my character, stand-
ing, and qualifications, and i!, after
you have made such investigation,
you shall decide to honor me with
your support and influence, I will
sincerely appreciate it. Kindly lay
aside the fact that I am a woman
and judge tile by the standards by !
which you would judge any other
aspirant for this office.
"1 do not ask anyone to support
me because of sympathy or because
of the fact that I am a woman, I
come to you with the plain business
proposition that I am qualified for j
the position and have the interests
of our schools at heart."
