is a big election year in W~dng with Congressional seats, state ,and coun~ offices all up for grabs. Can dates are Pol Ping ou, t of the woods every day. By the first of August, you ,won't be able to tehl the @layers without a scoreboard. T~e primary elec- tion ballot will be as large as a pup teat . or maybe a table- cloth. We've already bad quite a few candidates for state and n tional offices in town they be t along the ~mwmign traiL There's going to ,be a lot more. I meet most of them, I guess. I sit behind my desk when they came the office. Republicans and Democrats, men and worn- ell. How do you sLze ,them up? Is one of ,them destined for grea.t. hess? Some of them have no chance at all of victory. Most of them axe sincere, dedicated h~man be- ings. They come in all shapes and sizes, with a steady eye and a bonecrushing handshake. I fight back and squeeze as hard as they do. A newspaperman has his pride, too. They cover a lot of ground in th~s primaTy campaigning. It's a ~r~wling state, Wyoming, and you gotta shove the miles unde~ those wheels. Of necessity, the can~dates don't spend too much time in any one place. How do you size them up? How do you pick the one who will do ~he best job? They aren't around long enough to get a good line on ~bem. What are you going to do? Are you going ,to close your eyes and go eeney, meeney miney moe while you stab away with a'pin? Or do you pick 'am alphabetical- M~ybe ~he gels like the can- didate .with ~the curl over his eye. The men like the cute girl run- ning for office - if any of 'era en~ter the race. I'm not sure sometimes just how we do finally settle on a candidate. It's not all our fault- we want ~o pick the ,best candid- ate and ~urn him loose on the job. l'm speaking mostly of state and n&tional oandidates. On the cou~W level we general/y know considerably more about the can- dklate ~ause we've known most of .them for some ti~e. The primary election is im- portant - probably more so than the general election in Novem- ber. we don't get the best two men into ,the general election in the fall we've failed. And, of course there have been years when we've failed. But I don't know any better .system unless we start the pri- mary campaign the year before the election. T~is would prob- ably result in the public getting .tired of ~he candidates. The of. flee seekers, themselves, would probably all be on the welfare rolls by election time. It's a downright, dirty lousy situation when no one - the can- didates or the voters - really get the time and ,the opportunity dttring the campaign ,to make sure the best man is selected. B u,t we do our best on brief aeqtmintanceship, if we do our own thinldrtg and selecting, to make the wisest choice we can.

MARK I)U~TCAN, Insurance Commissioner the door with that indefinable quality that somehow makes you feel that here is a great one. Sort of like Slattery, eh? may be laughed ~t for Iook- irtg for a man like ,this - but there have been men like .this, a lot of ,them, in the country"s history. I met Kei,th Thomson quite a few times but I don't claim to have ever really known him. The first time I ever saw him he was striding up the sidewalk across from the office, long-strapped bag slung over ,his shoulder, trench co~t flapping in the wind. I think ~e had that indefinable quality. Perhaps that's why I compare all the candidates with the recollections I 4tare of him. Meantime, you just get that little old pin sharpened and keep your eye peeled for the 36-24-36 ean~date. New Amendment Concerns Refund Of Gasoline Tax State Treasurer Everett T. Copen~haver this week reminded farmers, ranchers and gasoline dealers of the new amendments that went into effect May 22, 1965 concerning state refund on gasoline purchased for agricul- tural reasons. The amendments concern: I. Bulk plant gasoline dealers must furnish invoices which have been prepared on forms us- ing double.faced carbon paper. 2. Invoices submitted for claims "must be receipted by the ven- dor, clearly marked paid and ,the vendor must sign his full name, as initials are not acceptable." 3. This applies to all invoices submitted for 4~e refunding per- iod July 1, 1966 throush Sept. 30, 1966, covering purchases for the period July 1, 1955 .through June 30, 1966. Coper~haver said delay in mak- in, g the refund can be avoided if the ~pplieant makes sure the claim is complete and properly prepared. THE SUNDANCE TIMES Sundance, Wyo.
