MEDFORD'S DAVIS RUNS FOR ALDERMAN TODAY

FINISHES HIS CAMPAIGN IN QUIET MANNER

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Richard T. Davis '38, Lowell House resident, will go to the ballots today in the Medford non-partisan primaries for alderman today. According to observers he has an excellent chance to survive the primaries and stay in the running although his chances in the final election in November are not so certain.

Davis finished off his campaign last night by geting in touch with election officials, ballot officers, ward leaders and voters in his district. He has been speaking every night during the last couple of weeks of the campaign, but last night he tappered off and confined himself to routine work.

Davis is running along with his father who is candidate again for the School committee on which he has served two terms.

In college Davis is chairman of the Council of Government Concentrators and an editor of the Harvard Guardian, college social science magazine. He is also a member of Phi Beta Kappa. Last year he was chairman of a table in the Harvard-Yale-Princeton Conference.

When he graduates Davis intends to go to the Law School although he intends to make politics his career.

Davis' platform has been concerned with economy in the voters' money. Combatting the disadvantages of his youth, he has declared that an early start will ensure a longer career of men with experience and consequently his election will be valuable to the community not only now but later.
