Eight percent protest new A controversy in the use of voting machines in the fail elections has risen in the northwest corner of Kossuth County after 8 precincts in that area filed jetitions objecting to the use of the machines. Supervisor A. M. Kollosch, SWM City, had previously fold County Auditor Mare Moor* that ho did not want machines in his area. Moor* replied that no ballots are going to bo printed this fall because the Board of Super* visors had voted 3-1 to rent machines for the county* Kollasch, chairman of the board, did not vote in the purchase of the machines but said at the time of their purchase he wanted to go on record as opposing the machines. Even had he been allowed to vote, the majority would have still car* ried, 3-2. THE PETITIONS with 64 s „ natures, were filed last week with Moore. Townships objecting are Eagle, Grant, Springfield, Hebron, Harrison, Led yard and Lincoln. The Board of Supervisors an nounced last fall that voting machines would be used in the primary.and fall elections for the first time. The Board voted to rent 40 machines at $150 each, and 8- free or a total of $6,000.00, with the cost to cover both elections The fee can be applied to the purchase price of $1,700 per machine if it is decided to buy the machines later. The Automatic Voting Ma chine Co. of Jamestown, N.Y furnished the machines. A ma chine -has been on display a the courthouse the past severa weeks. It is thought that returns wil be speeded greatly. About half of the counties in Iowa now have machines. County Attar ney Gordon Winkel has been quoted as saying that it is possi ble for'some precincts to use machines'' and others to use printed ballots but since the board ypted to include all pre cincts, all will use them unless the Board reverses its decisions New theatre •auger is Nebraskan Soi of foner Algona aian is murder victim Funeral services for Thomas Kresensky, 37, Robbinsdale Minn, high school teacher, wer re held Wednesday at 10 a.m n the Episcopalian church in Mankato, Minn.
