County Commissioner Candidate [Spring 1959]
Mr. Barry O. Hafer of Sullivan Township, Mansfield Star Route, has announced his candidacy for nomination for the office of County Commissioner, subject to the will of the Democratic voters in the May 19th Primary. After concluding his High School course and graduation, Mr. Hafer served 2 years as an enlisted man in the U.S. Navy in the Pacific Theater of Operations, and then enrolled at Lycoming College in 1947, where he majored in Business Administration. Mr. Hafer has been a resident of Tioga County since 1949, and in 1951 purchased a small farm in Sullivan Twp., which he has expanded and developed into a large and successful dairy operation consisting of seventy [70] head of Holstein cattle. He has interested himself in Soil Conservation activity and his 325 acres of productive farm lands comprise a model project in soil and water conservation. He was one of the originators of the Corey Creek Watershed Assn., and he has served as a Director and Vice President of the Assn. He has been most active in  civic affairs, and is believed to be the first Democrat ever elected to office in Sullivan Township, where he now serves as Auditor, an office he won in 1957. Mr. Hafer, as well, has been employed by the Pennsylvania Dept. of Agriculture in the Tioga County Bureau of Animal Industry. He is a member of the Grange, the Mainesburg Methodist Church and has been a most active worker in the Democratic Party for many years. His wide knowledge of the general subjects that are allied to the duties of County Commissioner well quality him for the position he seeks. 
Mansfield Advertiser, 1954
McConnell offered Assistant Secretary
Press notices have reported that Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Benson wants James McConnell to stay in the Agriculture Department and would like to have him as Assistant Secretary of Agriculture. McConnell went to Washington in the first place for a short time only as Chief of the Commodity Stabilization service. He has put that branch on a better basis and had intended to come home. He has, as his friends here know, trouble with his vocal chords and hesitated to take a job that requires him to make speeches. Also, he would like to get away from the headaches of administration jobs. He has done a good job in the department and the people there seem to agree with what some of his friends up here say, the "if Eisenhower had more men like McConnell, we would have better government."  McConnell's job when he was called to Washington was to find some way of disposing of the huge stocks of food products that the government has on hand. For several years those surpluses have been a threat to the farmers. The surplus has been growing from year to year and if disposed of in one season, or suddenly in great quantities, would see farm prices way down. The program established by McConnell seems to be one that meets with the least objection by all.
