      For State Representative

      T. H. Sackett
      Republicant Ticket

      Judgment on a man quite properly begins at home.

      Tborwald H Sackett is president of hie own Livermore School District No. 9. He served recently a president of the Larimer County Stockgrowers' association.

      In the recent primary his vote was the largest received by any candidate for representative.

      Here in brief is the narrative of Thorwald Sackett?s life: Born in Telluride, Colo., 40 years ago, the son of the mining engineer; he came to Fort Collins 22 years ago to enter Colorado Agricultural college, successfully completing his engineering course in 1916. After a brief period of professional work, Mr. Sackett and his bride, Dorothy Emerson Sackett, started ranching at Livermore. Mr. Sackett has been continuously and successfully in charge of a large ranching operation sinca that time and hat been continuously a taxpayer.

      Mr. and Mrs. Sackett are the parents of a girl and boy--Leslie Alice, a student in Fort Collins High school and Stanley, still in district school. It is interesting to note that during his last two years at C. A. C., Mr. Sackett was a member of the student council. He has a deep and studious interest in community and public affairs. He has kept his Fort Collin friendship alive and for the past eight years ha been an active member of the Lions club here--driving 26 miles regularly to attend meetings.

      Mr. Sackett is thoroly (sic) convinced that our tax system needs revision so as to shift the burden from ranch and home owners. He is ready to back the next governor, Nate C. Warren, in his constructive legislative program.

      Mr. Sackett was present in Colorado Springs when the Republican atate platform was adopted, and was present during the past week at a Denver meeting for the discussion of its provisions. He subscribes to this platform--one of the most constructive political documents In Colorado history. Mr. Sackett will be glad to discuss definite problem with voter and he won't "be on the fence" in expressing hie conviction.

      Your vote dated will be appreciated.
