Visitors in the down town section !l)i.s morning, selected ill random, discussed the mailer. Mrs. w. W. Pepper, wife of llui'i- uui connminily planter: "I nm nol i fnvor of parking meters. They r? too expensive to the ordinary -Wizen. Towns of thls-sUe can enforce parking laws if the city administration wants lo enforce Uior.i without insinuation of mclcrs." Says Problem Cati He Solved Baker Wilson, cotton buyer: "I don't want parking mclcrs.

Bryant, bookkeeper: "I tin In fnvor of parkins meters, be :aiise I would .be glad to pay th ulditionai expense for the convcn ience of having a place to park." W. M. Scruggs, cotton seed buyer 'I think the parking laws should bi :nforccd and we would not need iiitlcr.s. Enforcement of Inn present, larking signs on Main street would ;olve the problem." John Stevens, planter: "If park- ng laws were enforced, Blytheville vould nol need nicl?rs. They keep jeople from going to town so oflcn md so keeps money out of circula- ion. 'Ihere is plenty ol space to >ark in Blythevillc if HIE cily would ;e?p the signs painted las would :iave lo be done if meters were in- itallcd) nnd compel motorists to dark in designated spots for the -.Holed time.

Gallogiy, flying officer of Blytheville Army Air Field: "It is alright with me to have parking meters because it migjhl give us a place lo pnrk while «'e shop. We would like to come down lown shopping ior a few mln- ;ites at a lime and we never can find a parking place." Holpii Nichols, druggist: "I ,1111 not In favor of any additional expenses to residents of Blytlicville al .his time for parking meters. I run in favor of correcting the parking :vil which I believe can be done immediately If laws are enforced." A partial survey ol store heads resulted in these statements: Harry Ktrby, Merchant: "I am opposed to parking mclcrs.'I believe •'lie proper enforcement of our prcs- :nl parking laws would solve our problem. Tills would eliminate the parking of business cars on our main streets." G. G. Hubbnrd. merchant: ''The cily administration lias done a fine job with our finances and I sec no reason why we should disturb our present -setup on parking, i am opposed to parking meters." Suggests Free Lots Floyd While, merchant: "I suggest the cily enforce the present parking laws and that the administration asqulrc all available lots for free parking. Blythevillc is dependent upon outside trade and it's our job lo provide parking space." I. Roscnllial: "It would be better to give this vitsl mclal to our government for use in our war effort. Parking meters would he detrimental to the business interests of B)y- thtville by keeping out of town shoppers away." three merchants conlaclcd were in favor of parking melcrs . . four others were against their In- slallalion. All were unwilling; to have their names used.

This ordinance .sulnnfl.s lo voters DIG question of whelher parking meters will he installed on the streets of Blylheville. Whatever llic attitude of; qualified lo vole in the municipal election, the total vole should reflect the wishes of the majority of citix.ens. If most voters slay away from the polls there is the possihiljly thai results of liie voting will nol represent the wishes of Ihc public al large. As is Ihc case in any -such proposal, those particularly interested in it will vole. Those who have ijivcn the matter or no thought probably \vill not vote. Practically every person who drives u motor vehicle lias had experience with parking meters in other cities. It is up to each individual voter to decide for himself whether parking meters are. desirable in Blylheville, Thou each (jnalilied voter should lake H few miiuilc.s lime lo go fo the polls and vote "yes" or "no." Those who ignore llm voting privilege will have no right lo complnin if the election results do not express their wishes. Resident Dies Here Saturday Night; Service;Held Yesterday .lohn li.
