News Editor Frt t _n_orsemen.s Inasmuch as Snohomish County Com- missioners have stuck us with this ill- conceived, and probably ill-fated, February 6 freeholder election we as voters should make every effort to select candidates of quality. If we are able to do so, we may salvage something in this sans pri- mary election where no less than 75 seek off ice. Our endorsement goes without equivo- cation to this newspaper's former pub- lisher, Ward Bowden of Sultan. We rank Bowden as the most knowledgeable man in government in Snohomish County and among the outstanding in the State of Washington. His years in government eminently qualifies him for the situation. We can also endorse without reservat- ion Charles Moon, our 39th District state representative. Moon, like Bowden, is also extremely well versed and exper- ienced in government. Another candidate which we can attest to as having an adequate background in government is Lawrence W. Whitfield (Jr.), who is an incumbent member of the Mon- roe Board of Education. He is sincere and dilligent and merits our support. And--we're sure this may come as a surprise--we do endorse Dr. Robert Wil- cox. We think he gets off base at times, however the presence of Bowden and Moon will keep the good doctor on base, thus making him a worthwhile freeholder. These four men, of course, are ex- tremely available to the constituents here in the Skykomish Valley and will work to see that rural East Snohomish County has representation on a freeholder board which will be overly stocked with metropolitan orientated freeholders. As to the candidacy of others we can only refer to the information gleaned from South Snohomish County League of Women Voters Mrs. Blair Retires A face familiar to Larry's Food Store customers these past 13 years will be missed after this Saturday when Martha (Mrs. Tom} Blair retires.

Wegg Asks Answer (From Page 1) A subdued Moore stammered: "As far as not trusting you it's a matter of opinion. Everyone has a right to an opinion. You've given so many evasive answers to ques- tions I've asked you -- that's the only reason." Wegg was told that the city usually holds as a retainer 15 per cent of a fee until work is completed. At the close of last week's meeting his statement submitted for $360 was patd without question leaving a balance owing of $360. Mrs. Leslie Lowber of Route 2, a member of the audience at the well attended meeting, corn: merited: "A man's integrity is the most precious thing he owns -- you don't attack it without fact. I feel the town should make an apology and urge you to pay the bill owing him." Thalberg To Speak Stanton P. Thalberg, director of the Regional Reading Development Center for the North- shore School District, will speak at 8 p.m., Thursday, February 8, in the elementary school Dickinson Road, for members of the Monroe Parent-Teacher Assoc- tatton. Mrs. Walter Moberg, publicity chairman, notes the meeting is on the second Thursday of the month for this month only. Monroe P-TA meetings are us- ually held on first Thursdays.
