And unless something happens within the next twelve days it promises to be one of the quietest elections in recent mem- ory. But it shouldn't be! As far as Jefferson County is con- cerned, it is the election, not just a primary election. And for two reasons: it is final insofar as membership on the Board of Education is concerned; and inasmuch as there are no Republican candidates as yet, it is virtually final insofar as membership on the County Court is concerned. And yet the apathy persists. We cannot emphasize the importance of the choices to be made on May 10 by the voters of Jefferson County. As for the Board of Education as well as the County Court, we will be choosing and deciding who two of the five members on each body will be for the next six years. The Board of Edu- cation is a board of directors for the management of school affairs. The County 'Court is a board of directors for the management in general of the administrative and fiscal af- fairs of Jefferson County. If either body had a hundred di- rectors the choice of two of them could be greatly minimized. But the membership on each body is set, by law, at five; and the choice of two to serve with the incumbent three cannot and should not be minimized. It is certainly not a matter thaL should be treated with apathy. As we said on this page a few months ago, the voters of Jefferson County are stockholders and as such are now be- iffg asked to chooose two directors for two public corporat- ions. The choice cannot be made by proxy. It is the duty of every voter-stockholder to make his own choice and register his choice on May 10. The members of the Charles Town Baptist Church announce that the churcl will have the privilege of having the Baptist Student Union Choir of the Uni- versity of Richmond, Virginia as guests on Sunday morning, May 1. The choir will present a Sacred Concert, with music and scripture using the theme, "The Life of Jesus." The service is at 11:00 A. M. and friends of the church are welcome.
