'That** Why Ws Have Spring Training'
AULT two questions ooncera-

yesterday. One: "Why hat UM
hospital site been changod frail

OtUqil' the mayor and ban is

If we get federal aid then they
must approve the site. We have

must welt far approval before
making a final decision."

“Why are absentee ballots not
Issued for this election?”
Mr. J. L. Pitman, secretary of
the county election board pro*

of righteousness are better organised than ever before. Vigilance Is
still needed. If good men will not eerve In public office bad men will.
