Swimming Pool Won't Be Ready for Vote in Nov. 4 Election Mason Cityans will not have an ~ opportunity in the Nov. 4 general saicl Tuesday that architect's draw" ""''on to decide whether they ings of the proposed swimming pool r^-rt^'sstigr^ r:,T "^ as *· \\ithout the drawings, it would be impossible to estimate the cost and float the bond issue. Ciough said he had no idea when a special election will be called on the swimming pool. It would be built in the old quarry at 4th and Carolina N. E. Nevertheless, there will be two important local issues on which city voters will vote Nov. 4. They are whether councilmen's terms should be four years instead of the present two and if a north fire station should be built at an estimated cost of ?100,000. Viewed as a Must The proposed northside fire station, to be built s i m i l a r to the soifth station, is viewed as a must by city officials. The station has been recommended by the state board of underwriters. Additionally, Fire Chief Boytl Arnold points out that even in a medium-sized blaze most of the city's fire-fighting equipment goes into service. He fears that if a serious fire struck simultaneously with just one smaller blaze in another part of town, there would be serious trouble. The new station would provide space not only to keep an add! impossible to ready the swimming pool proposal for bond election by that date. A special bond election can be held within 30 clays after notice is published. But to he voted on in a general election it must be prepared 70 days in advance so il can be put on the ballot for mailing to absentee voters and servicemen. Ballots will be mailed Sept. 9. The idea was to hold the swimming pool election Nov. 4 with the hope that with ( a big turnout of voters the issue' would have a bet- of passing, it was ter chance learned. City Attorney Ray E.

Staggtrid Terms The four-year terrii for councilmen would go into effect after the terms of the present council expire Dec. 31, 1953. Half of. the new council would be elected the first time for two years and half for four. Thereafter, all terms would be for four years. The system would stagger terms so that half the council would be up for election every two years. The four-year term was provided for by the 1951 legislature with the thought that it is difficult for a council to enact an effective program if terms are limited to two years. City officials here say that it takes a councilman two years to learn his job. Under the four-year system, at least half the council would be veterans at the job.
