1941 FATTTEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Where Italians Might Make Last Stand Caruthersville To Vote On Municipal Light Plant Issue Fourth Time CARUTIIERSVILLE, Mo.. Jan. 10.—A municipal light plant bond issue election, fourth such election here, will be held Monday. March 3, the Ciiruthersville. City Council voted Wednesday night. The vote was unanimous, although in discussing the- issue during 1 the roll call of nlde.rmen Gordon Wright and J. W. Tipton, Sr., announced that they would vou- tor the election but insisted upon having "protests" in the record. Wright contended that the sum of $200,000 specified in the '-lec- tion for building the plant was "not laige enough to build a suitable plant." and Tipton protested V thru the project would be a -hindrance to Die National Defense- program." On three previous occasions attempts to vote the bond'issue into, passage were defeated. Twice the electorate voted down the proposal; the other time aldermen refused lo ratify Mayor D. D. Pinion's effort to hold a third election. Friction, occurred when Mayor Pinion was asked to name the Board of Public Work—a four-man body—by. passage of an ordinance allowing naming of the group previous to the election. Wright, Tipton and Alderman Wyman Dillman •asked that the Board be named now so that rihe people will know in whose hands the project, will rest if voted upon favorably." But the mayor won his contention that the board could not be named tin- til alter the election, A list of 25 names had been submitted to the council by Mayor Pinion from which to choose the "non-partisan body." Appointed as election judges in the four wards of Caruthersville were: Ward I — Herman Jumper and Jack Moore; Ward 2—Charles E. Watson and Charles G. Ross; Ward 3—W. E. Collier and Ernest Wilks; Ward 4—Paul L. Hprner and Harry Ridgeley. * d K duven back to defenders oft from re-' ; «,.
