Majority against bonds
From t'.ie moment it was announced

bonds would carry. However, we did
not look for any such a landslide

Walnut Creek and Inavale should have
given the bonds-such a black eye, in
view of their proximity to the county

Several factors contributed to the
defeat of the bonds:
First -Indignation at the calling of
Second Opposition to voting bonds
of any kind.
Third The cry of "graft" and the
fear that someone would get more out
of the deal than the other fellow.
Fourth The contention' that the
amount asked for was too much.
Fifth A general desire to "soak"

The situation demands immediate
action, and should a sinking fund be
created it should be for SI 00.000. in
