Platform; Is Elected
Youngstown, Ohio, Nov. 9. A man who has lived in
Youngstown but three months and whose platform pro
vided for discontinuance of street car service, turning the
streets over to jitney buses and for jailing any citizen who
paid taxes under a recent re-valuation, was elected yes
terday mayor over candidates backed by the major party
organizations. He is George L. Oles, who came in from
the country, established a residence in a hotel and carried
on an eccentric advertising campaign without the support
of any particular element or organization.
u Other "planks" in Oles' platform included permitting
"spooning" in city parks under police protection, dismiss
ing the entire police force if it "doesn't mend its ways" and
a promise to turn over his salary to charity.
The women's vote is believed to have been responsible
for Oles' election.
