A U. S. Navy home port for families of a 6th Fleet submarine tender, closed recently by the government, has become a last minute issue in the election. Nearly 1 millMNi fertMs are eligible to veto ii the election for Sardinia's regwul parliament, the equivalent of a U. S. state legislature. Leaders of all parties who have gone to the island from Rome to stamp for votes will he watching the results carefully for a test of which way the political winds are blowing. A strong showing by Communists and Socialists will put more pressure on Premier Mariano Rumor, who is trying to patch up differences in his badly split coalition government in an effort to bail Italy out of its worst economic crisis since the last world war. The Christian Democratic premier resigned last Monday when the Socialists, no. 2 partner in the coalition, refused to agree on an austerity package of higher taxes and tight credit unless the government committed itself to maintaining employment levels. But President Giovanni Leone refused to accept the resignation, telling Rumor to try to get his cabinet to agree. Since most government crises in Italy involve no more than . party squabbling, the timing of the regional election provides a rare sounding of voters. Emphasizing the problems, the government repotted Saturday that consumer prices rose more than IS per cent in a year while police announced disc-oven- of another parmili- tary camp frequented by- right-wing extremists. Police said three youths were arrested and a quantity of arms, bayonets and gas masks were seized in the mountains near Turin.

RUMOR'S resignation, after only three months in office, fueled voter discontent over rising prices, decreasing buying power and tension caused by neo-Fascist terrorism. The Christian Democrats, in power since the war, are bearing the brunt of the blame.

I WE I DRIVER BOLL RENTU.SERVKE 7l7INUT«VL,««tClMriHl«i MM 342.3411 Since establishing a burial vault distributorship in Charleston, we have discovered that the Funeral Homes do not service graves in the area. " Your Funeral Director picks up his telephone and calls a professional vault company to deliver your ordered vault arid to place a tent and service the grave. We cannot understand why the cost of the burial vaults increase 100% or doubles between the time it is ordered and purchased at the Vault company and the time it arrives at the cemetery and is retailed to you. By picking up your telephone and ordering "your burial vault from a vault company that furnish grave services, your investment of $1.00, if the call is long distance, can save you | hundreds or in the case of copper vaults thousands of dollars. The United States Entombment Company sell burial vaults directly to the public for the same amount that is charged by other metal vault companies for the heavier 7 gauge steel vaults or about $350.00 By cost comparison you will find the airtight vault of Compositex is 100% or $350,00 less expensive than the /.gauge metal vault when purchased through a funeral home that retails the item for $700.00 The cost of the Compositex burial vault when pu rchased directly from the vault company is no more expensive than the lighter and cheaper 12 gauge metal vaults and no meta! vault sold in the state is waterproof. A vault must be airtight to be waterproof. Many metal vault warranties state that the water will not raise inside the vault dome to reach the casket however when a casket sets over several inches of water inside the vault for months, the casket and remains can not help but become saturated with moisture. The Centurion vault of Compositex is the only burial vault sold in West Virginia with a water proof-airtight-warranty or return of your entire investment in cash. No other burial vault sold makes such warranty because no other burial vault is assured of being waterproof. Is the effort of telephoning a vault order worth hundreds of dollars to you? if not, order your vault'direct from a professional vault company. Burial vaults have no relationship to your selected funeral home or the type burial you desire. They directly relate to the cost you pay for the product obtained.
