As the impossible cannot be
expected in connection with an
election, Attorneys Nicholas &
McCoy have advised School Clerk
Thomas that certain provisions
of the new law governing school
elections will have to be ignored
at the election to be held June
This provision is to the effect
that when voters register thev
must state whether or not they
are taxpayers. Only taxpayers
are eligible to vote at a school
election. The law further nro-
vides that the registration books
shall be delivered to the election
officials in the various precincts
for the school election and be
used the same as in other elec
This caused the question to be
raised as to what proceedure
should be adopted for the school
election June 19, as the registra
tion books do no show who are
taxpayers! and registration time
is pasti The board's attorneys
advised Clerk Thomas that the
school election should proceed as
in the past. The election offic
ials can ask the "voters if "they
are taxpayers. If doubt exists
the voters may be required to
make an affidavit that they are
In past school elections a citi
zen voter could vote at any poll
ing place in the, district, but at
the forthcoming election all must
vote in the pt'ecihets in which
theo aire registered. The nchool
board is given authority; howev-
ever, to groupe precincts aCeord-
ing to convenience and have but
one polling place for each group
When the new laws go into
effect the corrupt practices act
will also apply to school elections.
Temperance Big Point
Sunday's Oregonian gave space
to some excellent pictures and a
writeup of nearly a column on
theAdventist camp meeting in
Portland which clpsed Tuesday.
The Times editor was on the
grounds Saturday and Sunday
and was present at a number of
interesting meetings, one of
which the Oregonian said:
"In the afternoon the whole
period will be given over to a
specially prepared temperance
program. The various temper
ance organizations wjll be repre
sented. There also will be spec
ial sinking, recitations, solos, a
chorus of 100 voices accompani
ed by a large and fine orchestra.
The Adventists as a people are
especially strong prohibitionists
and worked hard during th last
campaign to help the amend
ment to carry. They are deter
mined to work until the whole
nation is dry, To aid in this
purpose they arrange an elabor
ate program on the subject of
temperance each year jn all the
100 camp meetings that" are held
in the United States." '
