' - -_ (Daily News photo and cngravlnB) . SCiioOLCENSCS TAKERS started their canvass or the Esthervillc school district yesterday to discover the number of young persons up to the age of 21 years. Audrey (left) and Shirley Fransen will gather statistics in a house to house survey and age distribution charts will be made for the town and country areas. Other charts also will be prepared in the superintendent of schools office comparing present age distribution with that in past years. The Information will be invaluable in determining the size of new school construction in the future. City Policy On Salaries Outlined •,City employes received a written statement of policy on salaries and working conditions from the ^ city council at a regular meeting last night". ~' The written statement, adopted by the councilmcn, includes a few changes in regard to time oft and salaries. Perhaps the chief change was in regard to overtime. Under the yrltten schedule, workmen will be eJIdwed time and a half off for ;^»vortlme, jjIPor exa^mple, Jt work-^ ' man'works, overtime four hours, ho Is allowed to\tako six hours off. This time off is^ cuiJlulatlve for a period of 90 days. ' ' . «" • • • ^ THE POLICE', which becomes effective as of Juno 1, was adopted l<y the council as an answer to a request by city eAiployes fer recognition of their union as a-bi^rgain- ing agent. A representative of the United Gas,.Coke and Chemical Workers of America (ClO)-appoar- cd at a previous council meeting to explain that city employes Mad bo- come affiliated with the unjoo'-and asked that the group be recogqizcd as their bargaining agent. City Attorney F. E. Rosendahl advised at that time that the council had no legal right to enter into such an agreement. • The written statement of policy approval last night also includes a $30 a month raise for police Chief Eugene Bolty which raises his salary to $326 a month, it also provides for payment of Injured workmen until .workmen's compensation takes effect on the seventh day off from work. « « * • THREE PERSONS appeared bo- fore the council with, rfsqiiests during the meeting. Urias Uptagrafft requested further improvement of a temporary road to his lots hut the council did'not,act on-U'Oi> the grounds'that it ^y|ls• only meant to be a temporary road.. William Hanson spoke briefly on beginning another taxi-cab service in Elstherville and Srnest Smith showed illustrations of tractors and mowers the city'might be Interested (n purchasing. The council approved a transfer of funds, $6,000 from the utility fund to the general fund and $20,000 from the. utility to the street ^und. ! A resolution prohibiting parking oh the east side of Ninth street from Central avenue to Fifth avenue north was read for a^ second ttine and parsed unanimously for adoption. A -l^ld from Marklcy's Oil cpm- pany for gasoline for the next 8|x' mohth period beginning ^uno i -vtaa accepted.

Boggess not only didn't expect to bo elected—he didn't even know, he was a candidate. When Boggess cast his vote yesterday in the primary election he was amazed to discover his name among twenty-one others as candidates for election as delegates to the county • Republican convention. And what's more Boggess can't accept the position as delegate. In a statement to the Dally News today Boggess • stated that because of his position with the post office department he cannot accept the ol- flce and, furthermori', he said, he would not have allowed his name to be placed on the bnl- lot had he known of It in advance. It's all a comedy of errors Involving a man whp didn't know he was a candidate and obviously didn't expect to be elected—and can't servo anyway.. Negro Coed and White Fiance Will Marry Richmond, Ind., June 3 IP —A Negro coed and her white fiance, with diplomas • from disappi'ovlng Earlham college, headed tor Ithaca, N. Y., today to be married'Wed­ nesday. ' The two, Grace Cunningham, 22, of Berkeley, Calif., and Robert McAllester, 23, of Ithica, were together at Earlham's common.cemont Monday after a month of Involuntary separation. McAllcstcr said he was "fo.rced" by the college to complete his final month of academic, work away from the campus. • Beardsley Wins by- Safe Edge Dos Moi 1»ii!',(Junc 3 (^t—lown rcpubllcanbibaniored the wishes of their stattiitmd eongrcsslonal of- ncoholdpry,,ltloludlng Gov. William S. Beardsley, by giving renomlna- lions in yesterday's primary election to all who asked them. The only eye-opener on the dcm- ccratic aide wns the vlctorj- of Herschell C. Loveless, advocate of liquor by the drink, over Othn D. Wearin for governor. Secretary of Agriculture Clyde Spry had the one real toe-to-toe struggle among stutehouse incumbents. As returns from the 2,479 precincts neared completion. Spry retained the thin margin he had gained several hour."! after tabulations began. * * * lIOWEVKtilt ,IT MAY tako>thi official canvtita to nail down Whether he ttot the 315 per cent ho needs to prevent the decision going to the republican state convention. Spry hold tenaciously to 35.9 per cent of the total vote in his race end Francis Johnson clung tightly to 34.3 per cent. The third man In the contest, Harry B. Thompson, had 29.8 per cent. It Was virtually a certainty that the GOP choices for lieutenant governor and commerce commissioner to till n vacancy would be tossed into the convention's lap. State Senator Alden U Doud moved into first place for the republican lieutenant governor nomination this morning after his colleague. Senator Leo Elthon had been the front runner through the night. * * * NEAR THE CLOSE of tabulations, Doud had" 29.9 per cent of the vote In that race, Elthon 29.E per cent. Dr. R. J. Oltman 23.5 and Ralph Slippy 17.4 per cent. It was clear that Doud had little remaining opportunity to gain the required 35 per cent. The five-way battle for the GOP nomination for commerce commissioner to fill the vacancy was so crowded near the top that the spread amounted to only a few percentage points, there was no chance that one would come up with the needed 35 per cent. The order of standing, with relatively few ''pre<^ncts, ,Ha'¥(!P9i'tcd° was A. J. Ander.son, Johii A. Tallman, Peter A. Jcssen, John M. Ropes, and Otis De Voll. The only other nip-and-tucli'tus­ sle In the whole election^ .was for the dcmocrotic noml'natlon'for congress in the first district.
