T PAGE TWELVE BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, APRIL 22, 1047 Election Board Powers Defined •; Supreme Court Rules ; Lbnoke Commissioners •. Exceeded Authority •'• LITTLE ROCK, Ark., April 22. (UP) — The Arkansas Supreme Court ruled yesterday that county boards of election commissioners have ministerial but not Judicial authority. V ".. The opinion came when the court dismissed nn appeal from Lonoke Chancery Court and ruled again: / {he County Board of Election Commissioners. The court pointed out (hat Hie duties o[ election commissioners in Arkansas nre of a ministerial nature and thnt any oihcr function of a board is not covered by law. The ruling .was in connection •with an appeal by Troy Carroll who sought to run as an independent candidate for Lonokc County judge in the November general election. Carroll presented the board with a petition of 77 names of alleged • certified electors of Ixmoke Coun- | ty, biit the board charged that the petition was not valid ami refused to place Curroll's name on the ballot. The commissioners asserted that 34 of the 77 signers had failed to sjgn their assessment blanks and that eight had paid no poll taxes. A demurrer to Carroll's petition for a writ of mandamus was sustained in the lower court and the petition was dismissed. The opinion, written by Associate Justice Frank G. Smith, ruled in Carroll's favor but dismissed the appeal because of the "moot nature" of'the question. "The duties of. the election commission are ministerial nnrt not judicial," the opinion said. "The board has the power to determine whether a nrima facie .showing of a sufficient petition has been made, but it has no other functions." The court hel dthe question was moot in the sense that the Supreme Court cnnnot grant relict sought, but It is not moot in the sense thai it is important to decide n practical question of great public interest which may arise In any future election. 1 ' In other action, the Supreme Court upheld the Second Division Union Chancery .Court, in injoin- 1ng permanently Roy c. Duren from practicing optomctry in El Dorado. The lower court Issued !hc injunction after the State Board of Optomclry charged that Duren was practicing without the license re' quired that Duren had never ap- > plied for a license. '. The Supreme Court ruled that - the law required a license and held .that the evidence Duren was prac- .tlcing without paying Ihe license • "fee.

She doesn't manage a business, write novels, paint portraits, or sing over the radio. But her job'* big and it's important — she runs a home! What a job that is! In a year she washes more than 6 tons of dishes, cooks more than 1000 meals, wades through mountains of laundry, trundles her vacuum cleaner across acres and acres of rugs! The more Mom depends on electric service, the less work is in her housework. And how little electricity costs! A penny's worth a day will rescue Mom from the drudgery of dishwashing. A few more pennies daily will cook her meals. Electricity will help her wash. and iron for less weekly than the cost of a bar of soap. And when Mom balances her budget, she's bound to note that electricity is one of its smallest items. Actually, the average family now gets twice as much electricity for its money as it did about 20 years ago. This bargain comes to Mom — and to you, too — through the practical experience of your friends and neighbors in tins company, under sound business management. • Littin lo the New Electric Hour — ihf HOUR OF CHARM.
