Wellingthrip Pomerish III beat the Dodge Boys We have a standing bet that if anyone really shops around for a new car and compares style, performance, and price, he'll buy a Dodge. J. Wellingthrip took us up on it, but he didn't buy a Dodge. He bought a Rolls. Told us his family has never bought anything else. Okay, we lost that one. But now it's truck time at the Dod ge Boys, and we'll bet J. Wellingthrip that if he intends to buy any type of truck (something to haul his polo ponies around in), he'll buy a Dodge. We'll offeryou the same bet. The election calendar for 1966, issued by the Secretary of State, filing dates' are as follows: Feb. 5 --- Deadline for candi- dates to file.
