No. 51 dun Primary Interest A new storage structure al Clare Fabricated Plastic, plant on East Fourth is nylon and plastic and air inflated. Low pressure air hol'ds it up and steel lines over the top and anchored at the sides hold its shape. Brian Durbin, in charge of erecting the structure, climbs to the top to show it will support considerable weight. The 7-way race for Republican nomination for State Representative in the 99th District is a rival for the lead in local interest in the Primary Election coming September 1. Speculation and intensity in that campaign are matched only on the county level with hard going contests being waged for the GOP nomination for county prosecutor, and for county sheriff. Thi district is interested in the Representative battle because in pure numbers it has attracted more candidates than any primary in long years, —and because the county's own local candidate is making a strong race with a generally conceded good chance to win. Donald E. Holbrook, Jr. is not only reckoned capable of filling the office in Lansing, but he is conducting an energetic and intelligent campaign. Making the September outcome difficult to predict is the absence of an incumbent to claim the advantage in that position. Moreover, the several sec tions in the district are strange to each other being in' a district group together for .the first time. tThe 99th covers Clare, Mecosta, N<ewaygo, and Osceola counties which had a toi-al GDP vote in the 1962 Primary of 10^627. votes. Clare county's primary vote in that year was 2,306. S S Benefits Rise Here This month marks the 25th anniversary of the signing of amendments to the Social Security law making benefits available to' retired workers and their dependents, and dependents of deceased workers. In a release from Ar- mand W_ Ross, Mt. Pleasant social security district manager in observance of the date, he calls attention to the size of total benefit payments in Clare county.- • Here residents numbering 2,170 are receiving payments amounting to more than $143,000. each month. Something that could be considered an "evener" in the contest is found in the fact that Newaygo county which dominates the district with over 32 percent of the primary vote strength, has four of the seven candidates calling it home and claiming its loyalty. They could split Newaygo's votes in many small portions. Each of the other three counties in District 99 has one' candidate and if home based strength means much, they could offset the vote numbers that Newaygo county throws into the scales. Every one of the four counties saw a contest develop for the Republican nomination for a District Rep. in the 1962 Primary. Following are the GOP votes they counted in that similar election. Clare county recorded 2,306 votes in the Repu'b- lican primary of 1962 with a race between Russell Strange and Don Luce. In th e election coming on September 1, Don Holbrook, Jr. is the only one laying claim to Clare county s home son loyalty. Since the end of his military service Holbrook has practiced law in Clare and has gained experience in several campaigns f or elective office. He was a candidate for a seat in the Michigan Constitutional Convention and ran for election to the Clare School Board, both unsuccessfully. More experience came in helping to conduct his father's campaign as the party candidate for the State Supreme Court after an important role in getting the Republican State Convention nomination for the post. In present campaigning, Holbrook has enlisted the support of a 66-man committee including the former Primary candidate Don Luce of Farwell, Joe Johnston in Clare, Charles A. Amble in Harrison re-nomination in a new district that covers 14 counties all the way from Newaygo, Mecosta and Isabella in the lower line, to Traverse Bay and the Leelanau peninsula in. the north. He is challenged in the September 1 Primary by newcomer Guy Vander Jagt from Cadillac, and Don Gordon from Leelanau. ' Gordon has given up a seat in the Michigan House to become a candidate for the senate nomination. Like the free-for-all battle for the Representative nomination, this GOP senate contest has the candidates campaigning hard and "running scared." Early gossip pictured Gordon as the outsider with Vander Jagt and incumbent Hughes enjoying a better chance, but passing weeks in the campaign and many other influential T_ave changed to make it throughout the County Youth Exhibits Going To State Show Inside the inflated structure, workmen are installing an air lock to permit entrance and exit.

Judge Holbrook Known In District One of the most difficult campaigns in the September 1 Primary is feeing waged to nominate non-partisan cahdidates for Judge of the 3rd District Court of Appeals. Circuit Judge Donald E. Holbrook of Clare is a leading candidate in the field of ten. The court is newly created by Michigan's new Air Supports Structure AtCFP Clare Fabricated Plastics has "instant" warehouse space with the completion this week of a nylon and plastic storage structure. It is 40x160 feet on the ground and 20 feet high inside and that's quite a large bubble! The structure is entirely supported by air at 8-tenths of a pound per square inch. The warehouse was er- particularly ected and ready for use in just days after the order was given for its purchase by CFP from CID Air Structures in Chicago. Brian Durbin, here to supervise the erection of the structure said that it was fully inflated with normal pressure in only eight ijiinutes after being spread out on the position where it was to stand. It is on the back of the company property on East Fourth street. A system of air lock doors permits personnel and forklift trucks to enter and leave the structure. Fans force air into the Shell constantly. If they stopped, the Bubble would come down flat in something like 14 minutes. Two . electric blowers inflate the |*fystK. cture and they are backed up by an emergency ,fc blower powered by gaso- liline engine. constitution and provides a level for judgement in cases between local district Circuit, and the State Supreme Court. District 3 Court of Appeals comprises 66 counties. _ All of Michigan's area oytsi'de of the southeastern urban district and Thumb area. Three judges will be elected in the district and each of the others 1, and 2. In the huge area of the district,.and with the new court whose judges are being selected for the first time, Judge Holbrook has advantages that his neighbors and supporters hope will carry him to the nomination- and election. His record and experience in many years of service on the Circuit Court Bench in Clare, Isabella, and Midland counties have proven his ability for the post. As a candidate in 1962 for the Michigan Supreme Court he gained a reputation and became known throughout the state and the counties Beaver Tool Investors Paid In Full now in the 3rd District. Continued On Page A-3 Beaver Tool and Engineering Corp. of Clare, operating in a plant building leased since September, 1962 from the Clare County Development Corp, last week exercised an option to pay up all indebtedness and became owner of the building. In a transaction between Frank LaGoe, president of the development group, and A. E. Streadwick, president of the firm, LaGoe accepted a check for the total amount due and turned over the Beaver Tool and Engineering the deed for the plant property on West US-10 in Clare. In a letter to individual investors who held interest bearing notes for funds subscribed to purchase the property, LaGoe said. "Officers and trustees of the Clare County Development Corp. join in expressing appreciation to you for you r cooperation in this project.
