A hot city election, in which the men attempted to take back the reins they lost in 1937. resulted in a tie for mayor--67 votes each for Mayor Kathleen Emrie and 81 year old former Mayor John Small. Hoiv to Break Tie Three votes for Mrs. Emrie were ruled void and set off one of the iiottest controversies the town has ever known. A decision was to be made on how to break the tie. The men won two of five city council seats, but Mrs. Emrie speaking for the women on th council question, said: "We are very satisfied. Thij election was more of a battle o the sexes than issues, and please don't refer to us as petticoats." Despite Mrs. Emrie's denia there were real issues at stake the beer question played a heav part in the campaign. "Our Dander Got Up" After the women's victory two years ago, Mrs. Emrie explained that "when we heard that men interested in selling beer in Ford intended to defeat us, our dander got up. '·We decided that if the men wouldn't protect their community against influences \ve believe are detrimental to the young people we women would." True to their word, the women passed an ordinance forbidding sale of beer within 300 yards of a church or school. It's pretty hard to stay 300 yards from a school or church and still be in Ford.
