1951

Hold on to your hats, guys, this is a tough one. My Top 4 were easy enough. It was filling out the rest of my ten. I started off with 32 names that I thought might deserve placing on my ballot. I heartily recommend utilizing the write-in option to keep guys you think might merit selection in the elections in the ’60s.

Two long time candidates dropped off, having used up their eligibility: Dave Bancroft and Bingo DeMoss. Earle Combs dropped off from lack of support.

Just to keep things simple: if you just have “Waner” on your ballot, I’ll assume it’s Paul. Type in “Lloyd” if you’re voting for him. You’ll also need to type in “Bob” or “Judy” for the two Johnsons. You’ll also have to make it clear which Wilson, Hack or Jud, you’re voting for.

This election will end Thursday.
