So here goes!) IF YOU WERE EKf; WOULD STQU RUN AGAIN? LIKE SANTA COMING IN JULY, good fortune struck all four of these Maple Road youngsters within just a few hours.of each other last week. Jim Eobinett, Belynne Fritz, David Fritz and Douglas Robinett all received brand new shiny bikes from their parents .. .. and great was the rejoicing along the block. One of the youngsters was actually celebrating a birthday .. .. and the other three bikes were apparently just added to help the celebration. i David Stump — No. y Ike is a good man, but there's fno telling what might happen! to his health if he tries to run again. Diane Stump I'd do just" exactly what my brother .says. Taylor Jacobsen — Y.je s, I would run. I can't think &f any special reason, except Jhat I would like to be ..resident! Tom Hoy — Yes, I would rim. When you're president, you get to take trips and things. And even if you do get sick, you get the best doctors and hospital care, so even if you expect to get sick, the job is still a good deal. David Sindlinger— I wouldn't run. I.would be afraid of getting beaten by the Democrats. I think Stevenson will beat him. Ray Schlaff — I would run. The job pays too much to pass it up. Mary Jo Fleming I would run. Ike has a good chance*-of winning, so how can he lose by running? Mary Soy — I would run. I would like the job for all the money it pays. Jim Klump — No, I wouldn't run. Four years on that kind of a job is plenty for anyone. anchester Schools Mold Annual Meeting Monday MANCHESTER — Approximately 40 persons attended the open meeting of the school- board on Monday evening held in place of the regular annual meeting of the district, no longer official under the new sch'ool law. _ Superintendent of Schools Robert Masten discussed'the improved curriculm and plans for next year's courses, and the financial report was read.
