The Voters Service Committee of the League of Women Voters has completed plans for ‘Candidates Night which will be held Monday evening, January 9, at eight o’clock in Memorial Hall.

This is an important aspect of league work and because it is a nonpartisan organization it is in this area it is best able to be of service to the community. A candidates meeting gives voters an opportunity to hear on the same platform the men and women who are seeking the same office. It also gives the candidates a chance to reach people that he might otherwise not be able to do.

Last year Candidates Night was a lively and well-attended affair and it is expected so this year. Although it is extremely worthwhile in itself its value is commensurate with the number who take advantage of it. The candidates are usually more than willing to come to better inform the voter to take advantage and to listen, to inquire and to determine which of those who offer themselves as candidates will best represent him and best serve the community.

Mrs. Edward L. Collins, Chairman of Voters, Service, and her hard-working committee have left nothing undone in order to make this a most worthwhile evening. Besides extended newspaper coverage, letters have been sent to many organizations and announcements will make over radio stations.

For those candidates who have as not sent in their questionnaires the deadline is Friday, January 6th.
