APPLEGATE 10 D DIRECTIONS 1st. Upon entering the voting place, sign your name on the Voter's Poll List; Then go to the voting machine, .take hold of the :RED HANDLE of the CURTAIN LEVEH and puii it to the RIGHT as far as it will go. This will close the Curtain: around you and jjnlock the machine for voting. - 2nd. At the left of the machine are the PAHTY 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 Bell rings, and then let go back. This will .turn down all Ihe 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 'voted "Yes" or "No." These voting pointers MUST be voted indi- •vidually. Then pull the RED HANDLE of the-Curtain Lever to the left as .far as it will so. Points to Remember 1st. You must pull the RED HANDLE to the right, thereby closing 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 make 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 IN WHICH TJO VOTE. Legislative Candidates Attorney Robert S. Justice, rural route 2, Logansport, is the Republican candidate .for re-election as Joint State Senator from Cass and Fulton counties. Robert F. Peterson, rural route 5, Rochester, Fulton county auditor, is the Democratic candidate for Joint State Senator from Cas* and Fulton counties. THE QUESTION: • Would you favor making the publication oi (be names of all absentee voters mandatory? THE ANSWERS: ' ROBERT E. PETERSON: "This might be a possible solution to the flagrant use of the absent voters ballot. If rib 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 1913, 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 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 1 published some neighbor or the precinct committeeman or woman could stop an illegal vote. Those voters who have a valid reason to vote absent would hot lose their right to vote, because some people'harve abused the law." FRED H. MOSS: "I do not favor a law for such, as all namer 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 public and available to all .persons, to all political parties, and tc the newspapers. Mandatory publication would create additional expense for the taxpayers." THE QUESTION: Do You favor. a{ new lax to take some of the burden off the property taxpayer? If so, what? THE ANSWERS: ROBERT E. PETERSON: "In as much as schools are the largest single burden upon our property tax structure I would favor a substantial 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 wquld permit the lowering of the local property tax demands. However, first I would suggest that we close., 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 be 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 .property 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 operating our schools. Education is constitutionally a state responsibility and bv tradition shared with local communities. By far the largest share of the taxes paid by local property taxpayers is for schools. Increased enrollments, higher costs of the things schools, must buv. and the constant demands for better schools all mean higher and hiqher school budgets. "The Senate Finance committee sought unsuccessfully in its budget to put almost the entire cnit— mo>-e than 90 oer cent' of the : ncreaped enrollment cnsls — onto the backs of the local taxpayers. 'Ve managed to force throiioh an increase in the Governor's educa- *'"on hnrtqet of 1.5 w'llion dollars — 15 million dollars that otherwise would have been added Dnto your local tax bills. "Steo number two is to continue the work of nroviding for a more eaual and fairer pssescmen* of nronertv for tax nurndses. I voted for several bills aimed at this purpose buf more work needs to be done. •"T ?m convinced f^at everv Hoosifir is wi'l'ng to oav hfs fair "hare of tsxe' ?nd T nrr\ ,eaua"" ron'"'nr<" 1 tVurt wr* dm^i not want >o nav more than h ; - -^are. Achieving this equity in taxation will 'ie OPP of mv kev "oals." H. UTOSS; "I favor reduction nf.'nroneHv taxes bv making of "'her taxes, that have been set up to relieve property tax- JIITI.HU.PT sMrrtf; "No." -' WALTER 0. SPRINKLE: "I believe that property taxes should 'ie better equalized and that the burden of taxes on property should '•>e reduced. Studies should be made of probable yields from income and luxury taxes." Gerald R. Hershberger, 601 Sunset Drive,. city, is the Democratic candidate for re-election as State Fred H. Moss, rural reuie 1, city, is-the Republican Candida** for State Representative from Representative from Cass county, i Cass county. THE QUESTION: Do you believe that Indiana is adequately caring (or tU men* tally ill? THE ANSWERS: ROBERT E. PETERSON: "No. The problem of the mentally ill has increased tremendously within the last decade and will probably continue to do so under the pressures of our present day society. This is something we must battle constantly to tUy even and then give that extra effort to overcome the new problema presented." ROBERT S. JUSTICE: "Indiana has greatly improved the car* it is giving the mentally ill people of the state but further progresf is imperative." GERALD R. HERSHBERGER: "No, I do not believe the mentally ill are being, adequately cared for. One of the two major cuts made by the finance committee of the Senate in 195* to the budget submitted by the House was in the area of mental health. Yet this finance committee added millions of dollars to other agencies so that they could continue to have politics as usual. I am proud to say that on February .21, 1959, I submitted an amendment to add $500,000 to the mental health program, but unfortunately this was not accepted by the Senate." FJRED H. MOSS: "Yes, but their needs are growing with the increase in population." DELBERT SMITH: "No. Greater appropriations are necessary to provide a better treatment program and a 40-hour work week for attendants." WALTER 0. SPRINKLE: "Indiana has done much to irnprov* the care of its mentally ill, and is doing better than many other states. A great deal has been accomplished, and much remains te be done. I favor the adequate care of our mentally ill."
