·^ ··:«-"" FITCHBURG SENTINEL, THURSDAY, JULY 8, J97 L E O M I N S T E R Board Considers Splitting Ward 3 Into Two Precincts As New Registration Jumps LEOMINSTER, July 8--City Clerk Charles D. Haraden yesterday started the revision of the voting list in preparation for the municipal election which will be held in November. Mr. H*mden said today that the list received from the assessors indicate that there will be an unprecedented number of changes in the voting list this year. It is already revealed that the number of registered voters in Ward 3 this year will be close to 2000. The rapid growth in this ward is partly due to persons moving in, but most of the increase is due to activity of 'the Italian-American Citizens' club in promoting naturalization and registration work among the Italian- Americans in the city. Because of the rapid growth in the ward, and the prospects that it will continue to increase, the board of registrars will consider dividing the ward into two voting precincts. At the present time the polling place for the ward is the Old Town hall building, but election official anticipate difficulty in handling the large number of voters in the small hall. Wards 2 and 5, the two largest wards in the city, were divided into precincts last year with gratifying results. Returns were received from the two wards far more promptly and with greater accuracy than previously. It also eliminated congestion at the polling places. Biennial elections go into effect this year in Leominster for the first time as the result of a referendum at the election last fall. It means that there will be an unusually long ballot this yew for the election officers to handle, which it another reason why the registrars are considering dividing Ward 3. The voters will elect this year a mayor, four councilors «t large, five ward councilors and three members of the school committee. Both councilors at large and ward councilors will be elected for two year terms. When the biennial elections become fully operated two members of the school committee will be elected every two years lor fp.ur year terms. Death of Mrs. Mary A. Harrington LEOMINSTER, July S--Mrs. Mary A. (Kelley) Harrington, widow of John F. Harrington, 137 Mill street, died at the Monoosnock Rest yesterday afternoon.

TMPRESSrVELY big in every di- JL mension, the new Srudebaker is amazingly low priced to buy. And with its built-in Fram oil cleaner and its. gas-saving automatic, over-. drive, available at slight cost, it's decisively one of the world's least costly cars to*run. And, it's all alone in many innovations ... doors that click lightly, tightly and silently without slamming .., inimitable Helen Dryden styling .·.. trunks of a roominess to make you gasp . . . steering.that halves the turning effort of parking. Try Studebaker's automatic hill holder and you'll never want a car without it again. Enjoy the'com- fort of the Studebmker ride «nd Studebaker's refreshing ventilation.
