' ' :•• V Vote Machine Purchase Trucker Gets (Rehearing On Driving Count ~ BEDFORD—Hiram C. Sleasler of fiD 3, Bedford, he won a hearing on his recent conviction on motor vehicle charges by Judge Richard C. Snyder. . ^Sleasler was found guilty several weeks''ago in a precedent-setting case watched .with interest by truckers and police throughout the «tale. •.•'.•• /Sleasler had refused to move.his tractor-trailer off a private drive ; o'i.tb a highway for the purpose of b^ins, weighed when told to do so by state police, and police charged OAKLAND — The Garrett Coun. ly Commissioners unanimously rejected the recommendation of the Board of Election Supervisors for the purchase of voting machines. ',The 'Election Board made .a recommendation last week that the commissioners purchase 36 voting machines from the Automatic Voting Machine Company. The price for the machines delivered in Oakland was set. at $1,474 per machine,. for a total njm with resisting: arrest. 'tSleasier's attorney, Paul A. Koontz of Bedford, told Judge Snyder he had new material to -offer iii the 'case and asked for a re- argument; ''Judge Snyder granted the request and Koontz and District Attorney . Charley M. Koontz were ordered to submit new briefs to Judge Snyder for study rbefore a new opinion would be rendered. An interesting twist to the case is that .the opposing attorneys are brothers. .' Sleasler's contention at the original trial was that police had no authority to order him to move his truck onto a public highway for the purpose of weighing it and possibly fining weight; • - him then for over- cost of.?53,OG4, less two per cent discount, or $1,061.28, which would make the total cost 552,002.72. The only other bid was from the Schoup Voting Machine firm to taling $50,801.12 for 36 machines. This would figure $1,201.60 less than the machines of the Automatic Voting Machine Company. H. D. Swartzentruber, president of the County Commissioners, said the board was of the opinion that any decision on the purchase should have been made jointly by the two boards, according to the law. and pointed out there was nothing in the law which said that any recommendation should be made by the Board of Supervisors of Elections to the County Commissioners for approval of the latter. Top Quota At Keyser Visit KEYSER-Area "residents responded to the visit of the Red Cross mobile blood unit Wednesday; when a trial run.was made to determine if lhe program would be continued here.

Gibson, president of the Board of Supervisors of Elections, the County Commissioners set Monday at 2 p. m. as the time for a joint meeting in the bar library. . The letter further disclosed that the attorney to the board of County Commissioners and the attorney to the Election Board had furnished the commissioners with an analysis of the bids submitted that clearly showed the bid submitted by the Schoup Voting Machine Corporation was less expensive to the county, whether the machines we purchased for cash'or on terms. From the analysis it also appeared that both machines would comply with the requirements set forth by law and that the citizens would benefit from the purchase of a machine that would cost them the least. The letter then declared 'This Board has unanimously decided that it cannot accept the recommendation that the machines be purchased from' the Automatic Voting Machine Corporation."
