No Election Samples Sent Oal Last week, election judges and clerks were selected by the County Election Commissioners to serve tomorrow. The issuarice'of the order today will niean. tt was explained, that-no election materials will be sent out to the various polling precincts and. thai there will be no election on the -'hospital issue until a new date is set by the county court. • Saturday Oscar Pendler, Blytheville attorney, acting in his own behalf as a taxpayer and-in behalf of 111 other taxpayers sought an order In this county : court calling off the election, or delaying it until a later date. This petition was denied by Judge, Green. Later In the day Mr. Pendler, in behalf ot the petitioners seeking delay in the election, tiled in Chancery Court in the Osceola District a new legal action in which he asked for temporary and permanent -injunctions to prevent holding of the election on grounds that to hold it witliout .the use of poll books :might result in-confusion and .possible Irregularities. Hearing on the motion for a temporary injunction had been scheduled for 2 p.m. today , in Jonesboro in the office of Chancellor Francis A. cherry. -Tlie county court order Issued in Osceola this morning also cleared the court records of the protest petition filed Saturday by Mr. J'end- ler and leaves only the chancery court action before the courts. Act to Avoid Confusion The . decision" to abandon plans for an election at this time came out of a meeting of citi?-ens in Osceola yesterday with members of j the sponsoring organization. It was agreed that it would be confusing for the election officials to conduct the special election without the benefit of poll books to show who are the qualified electors and where they reside. The deadline, for obtaining 1949 poll tax receipts, which qualifies a citizen as a voici when he has resided In the township or city for 30 days, the county for six months and the state for a year, was October 1 and Sheriff William Berryman, who Is ex-officlo tax collec- Leachville Youth Injured as Motor Scooter, Car Hit The condition-of Jimmy Selby,- 16- year-old Leachville High Schoolstu dent who was seriously injured in a car-motor - scooter accident i n Leachville Saturday night was listed as "fair" by attendants at the Baptist .

Butler agreed that in fairness to the election officials and to those who might go to the polls without their official poll tax receipts it -would be best to delay the election and avoid the possibility of confusion. At the time the election was called in August, it was not known that the voters 1 'qualifications would be determined on the basis of poll tax payments this year, rather than the previous year. In the annual school election held September 27, the 1948 poll tax receipts were usable, and the names of all receipt holders were in the official poll books for that year.
