For instance, yesterday Irvin J. C at and C. William McDermott, jistrars,'signed up four voters who had just received cards; notifying them/that their names ,had been stricken off the- poll books for failure to vote in .five calendar years. That compares, favorably with.the total of,12 riew'registrants for the entire month of October. The registrars .also received some 12 telephone inquiries, a number of them:from persons who insisted that they had voted in a Ruptured UTon Cut AMI D*K't D«Uy Am«th« »«jr- ior now it ctn b* controlled vritK fievdoa and Comfort in »T«ry norm*! d^y ind • night nctiTity.

Wilson, chairman of the Board of Election Supervisors, said that wherever a resident registers a complaint that he has voted since 19SO, board employes will check the poll books against the binders to determin if a mistake has been made on the part of poll judges. The board chairman said'such a poll book-against-binder check was made of the 1954 elections and some mistakes were found. When they were discovered the poll judge was informed about the error and cautioned against a repetition. ' ;. Although the matter of reregis- tration can be finished in a matter of a few minutes, Wilson stated that the Board of Election Supervisors does not \vish to be unfair to anyone. Each citizen has a. right to know that his voting records are kept accurately, Wilson added. Some voters obviously are confused between city and county elections. Separate registration records are kept by the various cities in the community and the ceunty. One woman called the election board yesterday to tell the registrars that she knew "she had voted in the . past' five years be cause she had cast a ballot for a candidate for, mayor of 'Cumberland. . • ' • . Road Warning Signs Sought ByYoungGOP The Young Republican Club of Allegany County at a meeting last night at the Shrine Country Club joined other organizations in urging immediate action to get warning signs for truckers descending Big Savage Mountain. Howard Buchanan, president, said a resolution was adopted during the meeting urging that immediate action be taken to correct the present lack of adequate warning signs on.area mountains. The resolution was. adopted due to the tragic highwayoaccident in LaVale on October. 19. Buchanan added that letters, concerning the resolution, will be sent to Gov. Theodore R. McKel din and the State Roads Commission. - •• . During last night's meeting plans were made for a Christmas party af the home of Woodrow Gurley, which will be held during December in conjunction with the regular monthly meeting of the county group. ' A nominating committee was also appointed last night prior to the annual, election of officers which will be conducted during the January meeting.
