Witness my hand and seal this 22 day of March. 1949. ELIZABETH BLYTHE, Clerk of said. Court Reid & Roy, Attorneys. 3J24-31-417 LITTLE ROCK, April 7. M'j — Some municipal officials apparently are going to lose several months of their new terms ;others apparently are going to serve a longer tinic than they were elected for. The situation arises from adoption of Act 307 at the 1049 General Assembly. Act 307 provides that bcgiiiHiris in 1950, cities of the first and second class and incorporated towns will elect mayors, clerks, aldermen and other officials on the date of the statewide biennial general election in November. Officials would take office the following Jan. 1. As a result of this Jan. 1 provision, officials who were elected Tuesday for two-year terms apparently may serve some three months less than this period. On the other hand officials elected a year ago may sei-ve several months longer. There'll be a lapse between expiration of their present terms in April, 1950. and the first election under tJic- new law in November. 1P50. Now municipal elections arc held in April in different years depenrt- inp on tlie classifications of the municipality and local custom. Attorney General Ike Muny said he expected a request for a ruling on effects of Act 307. the United States had carried 026.31 tons of supplies by air Into Ber- In. There was no explanation by the •omtnitice of what supplies will be .nirchnseri with the new funds [or stockpiling. Oilseed Group Elects BILOXI.
