FORMER EXECUTIVE CHAIRMAN IS HONORED BY PARTY
At the meeting of the county chairmen in Col- •umbus last month. State Chairman Ray C. Bliss was greeted with loud applause when he paid tribute to the more than 30 years of service Milton Scarbor¬ ough has given to the Republican Party.

When Mr„ Scarborough first assumed the chair¬ manship of the Republican Executive Committee, Ash¬ land County had no more than eight Republican pre¬ cincts, half of which were the four northern town¬ ships.

In his polit¬ ical duties, in his activities around the Court House and in his life at home in Nova, we, with Mr. Bliss, wish him wellI
