Council to Vote
VERNONIA, OREGON, THURSDAY, JUNE 23, 1927.
Ben Owen« Elected New
Director of District 47
An unexpectedly large turnout
was present for the annual school
election of district 47 Tuesday af
ternoon. Quite a number were too
late to vote for part of the elec
tion and a number missed out al
together. It was said that some
thought the polls would be open
from 2 p. m. to 7p.m., but as
this is not a first class school dis
trict, it is only required that the
election start at 2 p.m. Ben Owens
received 42 votes for director and
Ed Tapp 32.
The race for clerk was more
closely contested, Mrs. Franklin
Rogers receiving 42 votes as
against 39 for the retiring clerk,
Mrs. J. W. Brown. During the
counting of the votes for clerk
about five persons came in late and
expressed a desire to vote. Before
they had cast their ballots an ob
jection was raised that the polls
were closed when the counting had
begun. But Chairman Poynter over
ruled the objection and allowed
the ballots to be cast.
