Nominations open until the end of the second period. No office em- ployee of this paper is eligible to enter and compete. This paper reserves the right to reject any nomination. The winners of the prizes will be decided by votes, said votes being given on busi- ness according to published schedule of votes. Contestants are not confined to any certain territory. Cash must accompany all business where votes are given. Votes or business are not transferable from one candidate to another, unless by the consent of the campaign manager and then only to an entirely new contestant who has no votes. Any ballot issued on subscriptions may be held in reserve until the end of the campaign. . Every contestant is an authorized agent and is permitted to collect and receipt for all business. A subscriber--once tur::ed in by a candidate and extended at any time during the campaign to any contestant beyond the time it was originally turned in for, if so reported--will have the same vote-value as though the full subscription had been turned in originally. Contestants will e responsible for all money collected until they turn same into the office and get a receipt for it from the Campaign Manager. Con- testants will make two reports weel.:ly, or as much oftener as asked to do so by the Campaign Manager. Besides the regular prizes offered, a cash commission of 20 per cent will he given to every non-prize winner; but it is distinctly understood that, in the event any contest- ant becomes inactive, failing to make a weekly cash report, he or she will, at the dis- cretion of the manager, become disqualified, and thereby forfeit all right to a prize. If a contestant's prize is worth less than the guaranteed commission of 20 per cent, they will be given the difference in cash. This is in fairness to other contestants, since inactive candidates keep business from others. To insure absolute fairness and impartiality in the awarding of the prizes, the cam- patgn will be brought to a close under the Locked Ballot-Box system. During the last week of the campaign, a ballot box, locked and sealed, will repose in the vault of the local bank, where the candidate will deposit their final cash collections and reserve votes. When the contest has been declared closed, a committee of Valley business men who will act as Judges, will take harge and make the final audit and count, and also award the prizes. No subscriptions or money will be received at the office of The Monroe Monitor during the last week. In this way, no one, not even the Campaign Manager, can possibly know the number of votes held by any candidate until after the judges have made their final count. , No contestant is entitled to win TWO prizes, as the winning of one of the regular prizes eliminates from the count all other votes that the winner may hold. This applies to regularly listed prizes, and does not affect the winning of any special prizes that may be offered during the campaign. In the event of a tie for any one of the prizes by any of the contestants, a prize Identical in value will be given each tying contestant. No statement, assertion or promise, either written or verbal, made by any of the solicitors or contestants, will be recognized by the publishers or the campaign managers. Only the printed rules will be recognized. In case of a typographical error, it is understood that neither the pub- lisher nor the campaign manager shall be held responsible, except for the necssary correction of the same. Contestants may secure their business in any territory and may organize their friends and get all the help possible in the promotion of their respective campaigns. Honor Rolls during the second period will count 10,000 each day won. It is for the most money turned in each day. Lady's stationery, "if used" will run during the last two periods, and will count the same in votes to the contestants as subscription. The Monroe Monitor guarantees fair and impartial treatment to all contestants, and any question that may arise will be decided by the newspaper management or by the judges, who will serve in the final counting; and this decision will be absolute and final. In accepting nominations, candidates agree to abide by the above rules. Jump in today and put your own community on the map in big /'ed letters by winning a prize. No luck--no chance--just earned effort. Remember, start NOW and have the advantage. Procrastination is the thief of time. This campaign will be short. No extensions. It will close December 19th.
