PIERRE, June 4 (AP) — Mark W. Sheafe of Watertown and W. L. Chaussee of Vermillion, two of the unsuccessful candidates for the democratic congressional nomination in the first district, filed their campaign expense accounts with Secretary of State Goldie Wells today.
Sheafe reported he spent $600.89, mostly for traveling and advertising. He reported contributions totaling $55. Chaussee spent $156.20 and listed no donations.
The Loriks for congress farm committee filed a report showing receipts of $51.25 and expenditures of a like amount in the interest of Emil Loriks of Arlington, who was nominated by the democrats as their candidate in the first congressional district.
I purchased roughly 25 original issues of the Yankton (South Dakota) Press & Dakotan, dating from 1938 to 1946. I am systematically going through every issue and will be posting the articles that include the names of individuals. I am happy to email full-size scans of any article. Feel free to ask.
Do we share any ancestors?
