Glenn Wallace, a partner in Wallace Monument Company, is unchallenged in his bid for re-election to the council, and Cecil McAfee, a welder, is unchallenged in his first election. McAfee was appointed by the council to fill the un- expired term of Harold Autry who moved to Amarillo. A light vote is expected for the city election because of the lack of competition. Campaign begins The Sustaining Membership Enrollment is toask people to pledge a substantial amount each year that can be billed or have a draft drawn on their bank account. This would re- move the necessity of contacting these individuals every year and give a better idea of just what can be budgeted. The money collected goes 100 to support the Boy Scout Exectives plus two secretaries and work study help, main- tains Camp M. K. Brown west of Wheeler and educates the volunteer workers in the Boy Scout Program. At the pre- sent time there are 4,700 Scouts and between 1,600 and 1,800 volunteer workers in the Adobe Walls Council. If a person doesn't feel able to be a S.M.E. member, any amount you can contribute will be deeply appreciated.
