Camden, May 14. – Special) –

The following names have been submitted to Governor James F. Byrnes by the Kershaw county delegation as members of the law enforcement board of Kershaw county and it was expected that there would be formal appointment by the state executive at once:

Grover C. Sowell, R. F. D. 2, Kershaw, representing Flat Rock township.

C. B. Mitchell, Bethune, representing Buffalo township.

John D. Shaw, National highway Camden, representing DeKalb township.

L. P. Rose, Sr., Blaney, representing Wateree township.

Gib DeBruhl, sheriff of Kershaw county, is chairman of the board, and under the law an appointment of him is not necessary.

More than 60 applications have been received so far from persons anxious to secure jobs as rural officers.

In the matter of a rural police chief, it is being predicted that Purdy Lee, who has held the office of county coroner for some years, is given the inside track for the position.

Senator J. C. Arrants, when asked if Lee was favored for the office, replied that the naming of the chief and rural officers was up to the law enforcement commission, which he said would probably meet early this week.
