Rarely does a public office de­ mand such qualifications\ as does the office of Justice of the Su­ preme Court. And, fn no public office, does experience count so heavily in the correct performance of the duties involved. Justice is a commodity that mellows with age and the dispensing of it. de­ mands the utmost in strength, wis­ dom and understanding. It is for these reasons that most Incum­ bents with lengthy terms on the bench received endorsements from both political parties, so that this vital experience is not wasted. Here in the Eighth Judicial Dis­ trict, two Republicans seek re­ election to the Supreme Court, and deserve the support of every thinking voter, regardless of party affiliation. Incumbent Justice Hamilton Ward can point to a combined total of 19 years on the bench, having served five years as Erie County Judge and 14 years as a Supreme Court Justice. Justice Ward is presently Senior Trial Justice for the Eighth Judicial District of the Supreme Court. Justice Alger A. Williams, an-! other veteran of 14 years service in the Supreme Court, holds the office of Presiding Justice of the Appellate Division, and has been credited with aiding in the im­ provement of the entire state court system. Chief Judge of the Court of Ap­ peals, Charles S. Desmond, said of these two men, \Justices Ward and Williams have not only given sat­ isfactory service, but both of them are outstanding for ability, impar­ tiality and zeal. Each is a leader in the continuous effort to make public justice prompt and effi­ cient.\ With these backgrounds, it is immediately apparent that party lines and politics play a secondary role, and that, the qualifications of the man are the important consid­ eration. It is with this thought that we of'er an unqualified en­ dorsement for re-election of Just­ ices Hamilton Ward and Alger A. Williams to the Supreme Court of the Eighth Judicial District, Statement by Mrs. Emily Smith Warner of New York City, daugh­ ter of the late Alfred E. Smith, en­ dorsing ' Richard M. Nixon for President: \Comforted by the realization that both candidates for the Presi­ dency agree that no one should vote for or against a candidate by reason of race or religion, I have asked myself what my father in his wisdom and patriotism would do in this coming .election. He -would reject, as I do, every appeal to racial or religious bigotry or solidarity. He would reaffirm, as I do, in unmeasured terms, that no true American should allow his vote to be influenced either way by any. appeal either to religious prejudice or religious solidarity. Coming to the real issues, I ark satisfied that he would endorse my determination to' 1 support -Vice Precedent Nixon for the Presidency. I Intend to cast my vote for Mr. Nixon for these reasons: First: The'world-crisis requires that we have seasoned, able and experienced leadership in the White] House. I do not oppose Senator Kennedy because- he is young in years, but rather because he is im­ mature in thought. Second: This quality which my fother; would have called half- baked, thinking is evidenced by his unfortunate efforts to disparage our achievements as a nation and by unfair partisan attacks on President. Eisenhower. The fact is that -under. President Elsen­ hower' this country,, starting from scratch'at the beginning of his ad­ ministration, has been acclaimed throughout' the free world for its achievements in missile and space science. We stand today at the peak of our military power. Third: Further, it is evidenced in his irresponsible slander of our country in Its foreign relations. No one could steer through the last eight years without.some error. But as we emerge, today, Russia has been baffled and rebuffed in its Congo plotting; the Latin Ameri- c&i*republics have stood steadfast­ ly by us in the Cuban situation; our allies are closely knit to us and the shabby propaganda poses of. the Communists have been exposed to the whole world. The only rift in the picture Is that the leader of one of our great parties undermines our status by forgetting that partisanship should end at the water's edge. This is in sharp contract to the universal acclaim of President Eisenhower's historic speech before the United Nation's < Assembly last month which demonstrated our position of leadership among the free nations of the world. - Indeed our- prestige was never higher. Further, my father's innate hon­ esty'always deterred him-- from making promises that could not be kept, but Mr. Kennedy promises higher.-. wages, • higher relief pay­ ments, higher- farm subsidies, something -for every pressure group, and I' must ask who .is to pay the bill, Inherent in this pro­ gram is the threat of .violent infla­ tion .which strikes at all classes and particularly at ,the prosperity of the great „ middle classes of America.- Lastly, I have studied the careers of Vice President Nixon and Am­ bassador Lodge. No man ever had a better training for the presidency than. Mr. Nixon. He is seasoned, experienced, devoted and intellect­ ually honest. Mr. Lodge- has a career of magnificent accomplish­ ment In the United Nations that has made him the most reliable partner a president could have in the con­ duct of our foreign relations. Our beloved country needs these two patriotic leaders of men.\ . Don't\ foriei! '. (Especially- -the residents of Delevan). This Sun­ day {morning at' 2 a. m. the clocks are to be set back one hour.' We're sure this-is the aright date- and jgven though\ the Delevan residents were warned to.do this one month ago they can go ahead- and .do it this time and be right. Next Monday night is that long awaited night for;, \Tricks or Treats\ for the little ones.'' Having some little ones at home, we know the amount of enthusiasm that is built up in-those little heads waif ARCADE, N. Y. ONE OF THE FIVE TRI-COUNTY WEEKLY PUBLICATIONS, COV NSHIPS IN WYOMING, CATTARAUGUS AND ERIE COUNTIES Volume LXIX 10c Copy; 15c by Mail; $4 per Year Two Sections-T6 Pages Thursday, October 27, 1960 Number 41 Story From Warsaw Hospital Proves The Dog Is Still Man's Best Friend The scrathing of a pet beagle at the door of the Wyoming' County Community Hospital last Thursday evening brought an amazing story of canine loyalty and determination to the attention of local authorities. The episode began about 3:00 Thursday afternoon when a car driven by Herbert Christie of Wyo­ ming crashed on route 19 near Rock Glen. Riding with Christie at the time of the wreck was his dog, a female beagle hound named Hattie. While the State Police were trans­ ferring Christie to the Wyoming County Community Hospital, they tied Hattie to a nearby house un­ til they could return and take the dog home. But when they got back Hattie was gone. Four hours later, at about 7:00 the same evening, the pup arrived at the hospital- door. It seemed obvious by her scratching and whimpering that Hattie knew her master was inside. The evening supervisor, Mrs. Ray Thomas, first noticed the dog but was quickly joined-by Christie's surprised-wife, who was waiting at the time in the lobby of the hospital. Realizing the presence of the pup might raise the spirits of her master, who was suffering from painful lacerations, a rule forbid­ ding pets in the building was momentarily dropped and Hattie was taken to Christie's room. Once the dog had been returned to Christie, she immediately settled down and resumed, the placid be­ havior so typical of her breed. Her apprehension about her master, solved, Hattie permitted herself to be taken home by Mrs. Christie. There the dog awaited the arrival of Christie himself, who \was re­ leased from the hospital on the weekend. The mystery still remains how the dog found her way from Rock Glen eight miles away to the hos­ pital and how she sensed her mas­ ter was inside. Hattie was ap­ parently not relying entirely on scent because Christie was ad­ mitted through a door at the rear of the hospital while the dog was scratching at the main door at the front of the building. At any rate, the whole thing is Hattie's secret. And Hattie isn't saying a word. >> Masonic Grand Master-To Speak At Genesee-Wyoming District Meeting Jadre Carl W. Peterson Carl W.

We have followed with interest the polls telling us how the Presi­ dential race is going to come out and one of our good Democratic friends in Delevan keeps reminding -that his party is .ahead. Perhaps he's right but we can remember only too well about 12 years ago when Life magazine had its cover run with Mr. Dewey as the next president only to have the voters' change the decision. • -Personally we feel- that this'is going to be one of the closest elections that the United States has witnessed. ' Certainly we should have the largest vote ever in the history of this country. We have been able to know the candidates better than ever through radio, TV. and the newspapers.

The defi­ nition of the word 'statesman' is man skilled in government and wise in handling public affairs.' am sure you will agree with me that his record- of public service for the Town of Yorkshire and the County of Cattaraugus has earned him that title. Mr. Sherman went on to say, \Earle was born in the Town of Java 75 years ago, September 12, 1885, on a farm which had been in the family for three generations prior to his ownership of the farm. In 1905 the family rented the farm and moved to Delevan to operate the Pierce Feed Mill. During his stay there and just prior to it he did some threshing. In 1907 he moved to Yorkshire to the 22 acre farm on old Route 16, and in 1947 moved to his present home. \Earle was appointed Justice of the Peace in 1917, and in October, 1929 was elected Supervisor of the Town of Yorkshire. While Super­ visor he served as Chairman of the Finance Committee for 13 years— a record in New York State, we are told. Following this he served for four years as Chairman of the Board until his retirement in 1956. He served as Supervisor a total of 27 years. Earle has served in public office for a total of 39 years and 10 months, which must be a record.\ Mr. Westover, in response,. told how much he had enjoyed working for the people for so many years and reminisced about his close association with both banks over a period of many, many years.
