Upon entering the voting place, sign your name on the i Voter's Poll List. Then go to the voting machine, :take hold of the :RED HANDLE of the CURTAIN LEVER and puii it to the RIGHT as. far as it. will,go. This will close the Curtain around-you and .unlock the machine for voting. 2nd. At the left of the machine are'the PARTY-LEVERS, indicated by the party names, the names of the Democratic candidates appearing in the first or top row, with their respective ballot numbers ,and the letter "A." In the second row the names of the Republican candidates appear with-their respective ballot numbers .and the letter "B." Other party candidates appear in the rows indicated by the respective party emblems, and each'of such candidates has a number followed by the letter indicated. Pull the lever containing the name-'and emblem of your party .toward the" Right'until the 1 Bell.rings, and then let go back. This will r turn"down.all the Voting POINTERS in.your party row. 3rd. If you wish to vote a "Straight" party ticket, leave the Pointers as they are (down), and then pull the handle of-the Curtain Lever back "to the left as far, as it-will_go. This will register your . vote, "open the Curtain, and set the machine ready for .the next voter. .But if you wish to "split" your ticket,; pull .the lever containing the name of your party toward the Right until the Bell rings and then let it go back. -This will turn down all the voting Pointers in your party row, just the same as "when voting a straight ticket^ but before you 'pull-the curtain lever to the left, turn up the Pointer over the name "of each candidate you wish to cut out, and^then turn down a Pointer 'over the name of the candidate you wish .to vote for. At the top, above the party rows, appears the questions on proposed Constitutional Amendments and Utility Service Board to be Would you favor making the publication of the, niraes of all -voted "Yes" or "No." These voting pointers MUST be voted indi- 'absentee voters mandatory? •vidually. ' Then pull the RElf HANDLE of the Curtain Lever to the left as far as it will go. Attorney Robert S. Justice, rur- Republican candidate for re-elec tioti as Joint State Senator from County Legislative THE QUESTION: Do You favor a new tax to take some ot the burden off the property taxpayer? If so, what? Robert F. Peterson, rural "route 5, Rochester, Fulton county auditor, "is the'Democratic candidate for Joint State Senator from Cass and Fulton counties. Points to Remember ""1st; You must pull the RED HANDLE to the right, thereby dosing, the Curtain around you before you can operate the machine. -'. 2nd! You must pull a PARTY lever to the left of the machine 'until the bell rings. - // 3rd. You. must leave a Pointer down over the name of each -candidate you wish to vote for, or question you vote for or against. 4th. No vote is registered by the machine until Red Handle Curtain Lever is moved by you to open the Curtain,. You can therefore ^nake as many changes as'you wish in your vote before'you pull the Red Handle of the Curtain Lever back to the left. ;. EACH VOTER IS ALLOWED NOT MORE THAN. ONE, MINUTE "JN WHICH'TO VOTE. " ' - THE ANSWERS: ROBERT E. PETERSON:' "This might be, a possible solution to the flagrant use of the absent voters ,ballot If'no better procedure is proposed and this would correct the situation I would, favor such a law." ROBERT S. JUSTICE: "No,,I would not favor" a law making the publication of the names of absentee voters mandatory. The names of applicants for absentee ballots are 'of public record under the present law. (Burns-Revised Statutes of 1933, Sec. 29-4906) Any citizen may inspect that record and any newspaper can .publish it. The taxpayers should not be compelled to pay the cost of publishing the names 1 of absentee voters in legal notices or advertisements." GERALD R. HERSHBERGER: "This would probably be a good way to police absent voters. If,these names were published some neighbor qr the precinct committeenian or woman .could stop .an illegal vote. Those voters' who have a valid reason to vote .absent would not lose their right to vote, because some people'have abused the law." , ' , ...... ,. ., , t - 7,- ,,'-.- - ,- V ... ,1. FRED'H. MOSS: "I do not favor a law for such, as all name-" of applicants for'absentee ballots, are,of public 'record. Anyone'that_ wishes may inspect these records." . • - - DELBERT SMITH: "Yes.", . . • - " WALTER 0., SPRINKLE: "No. The record of. absentee voters is sublic and available to'all person's,'to".all political'parties, and tc he newspapers. Mandatory' publication would create additional' ex- sense for the taxpayers."- , * THE ANSWERS: ROBERT E. PETERSON: "In as much as schools are the largest single" burden upon'our property tax structure I would favor a sub' stantial increase in state support for schools. The implementation of a net income tax would be- one possible solution. Other new forms of taxation or an increase in the gross income tax could be considered. The distribution of a sufficiently large amount of school money from the state would permit the" lowering of the local property tax demands. However, first I would suggest that we dose loopholes in the present state structure, eliminate waste, and distribute more of the surplus in the state general fund." ROBERT S. JUSTICE: "I favor reduction of the tax load on | the property taxpayers. As your Senator I voted for the bill which 'repealed 14 cents of the 15 cent state property tax levy. (Acts of 1957, Chapter 336) Luxury taxes and a net income tax are to bej preferred to the property tax because they are more in accord with the taxpayers ability to pay""' , '. , GERALD R. HERSHBERGER: "I do not believe a new tax is necessary. Relief for the local property taxpayers of Indiana is essential. Much of the increased'burden of the cost "of government- local government and schools—is borne directly by property taxpayers. And at present" their share of these costs is grossly unfair. In the next session of the General Assembly I would take two specific steps toward the goal of providing practical and direct relief to the over-burdened local pronerty taxpayer whose taxes have been skyrocketing in recent years. "Step number one is for the state to assume a greater share of the cost of onerahng our schools. Education is constitutionally state responsibility and bv tradition shared with local communities. By far 1he largest share of the taxes paid by. local property taxpayers is for schools/*Increased enrollments, higher costs of the things Gerald RcHershberger, 601 Sunset Drive, city, is the Democratic candidate for re-election as State Fred ,H. Moss, rural route 1, city, is the Republican candidate for State Representative from schools must buv. and the constant demands for better schools -all mean higher and higher school budgets. - , "The Senate Finance committee sought unsuccessfully in its budget ,to nut almost the entire cost— more than 90 i>er' cent of'the •'"cre^ed ^enrollment cos's— nnto the baeks of the local taxpavers.

THE ; QUESTION: •- - ^' Do you believe that Indiana is adequately earing for itn" me*, tally ill? THE-ANSWERS: ROBERT E. PETERSON: "No. The problem of 4 the mentally ill has increased tremendously within the last decade and will probably continue' to do so under the pressures of our jwesent 'day society. This, is' something we must battle constantly ,io stay even and then'give that extra effort to overcome the new problems "presented," - - " • ROBERT S.

One of the two major cut* made by the finance'committee'of the Senate in 185J to the budget submitted by the House was in the area of mental health.
