" The company was organized in :884 strictly on a volunteer basis n d it still operates on the same olunteer basis, but with more d broader services to the com- munity and county. : According to the six page bro- which includes pictures de- phases of the company's in 1890, 1930, 1950 and a total of $23,243.08 was during the past year maim and operating the fire and services.

I stated in my campaign advertisement in this paper that, if elected, I would be a full time sheriff. Today, as in February, I stand firmly on this commitment, which I made based on my feeling as a concerned citizen, that Jefferson County needs a full time sheriff to meet and fulfill the duties and obligations of the office. For my experience I offer you 3 years in the U. S. Army where I attained the rank of staff sergeant, selection for leader- ship training at the leadership school in Camp Chaffee, Ark., graduation from the Guided Missile Technical Center in Fort Bliss, Texas, was troop instructor on guided missile systems at Aberdee n Proving Grounds, Md., 5 years in the Dept. of the Army under civil service as guided, missile technician, team leader for off-post activities, coordinator and instructor in a technical school on guided missile systems, and 12 years in industry where I have worked in all phases from laborer to supervision and management positions. I have always believed that good leadership, not force, brings out the best in people. Elect a full time sheriff to serve all citizens of Jefferson County, one who is concerned and aware of the needs and duties of the office. ELECT 6ROVER A.
