The western answer to the nation's fuel young lady gives a friend a horseback ride shortage might very,well be this one, seen • down the main street, amid the usual flow of on a Nebraska City, Neb.; street as this gUs-burners. UNIFAX 11 /1 .1 rfi n 1 • i •! r* uay i^amp ne Monmouth leen Burned in Jail lire At Monmouth MONMOUTH - The City of M&nmoUfch will probably have ' Jl Instead of 10 precincts after the Warren County Board meets Monday, according to Lee Rodgers, board chairman. Rodgers said today a committee has been,working for pome time to solve the problem of a more eaultable distribution of' population in the precincts in Monmouth Township. The plan which will be presented to the board members adds a new precinct within the city and keeps the population in'a 451-584 range in all of the preciricts in the township. , Rodgers said the new precinct will be. called; Precinct 11 and the present Precinct 11 which includes the area in the township located outside of the city, limits will be changed to Precinct 12. The new Precinct 11 will County YMCA Day Camp Set include parts of the present Precincts 3 and 9. ' ..

The committee canceled its second working session because of Senate debate on the farm bill and the Watergate hearings which claimed the time of several of its members. The sessions resume Monday. elude the same general vicinities, but that, all will; be ehanged some. "If We add the hew precinct, we wJU have to find a new polling place," said Rodgers. He said it is expected that the new polling place will be located somewhere in the vicinity of Oak Terrace Apartments, the city's low-income development for elderly people. "We want to be sure the poll is convenient for our elderly' voters in that area," said Rodgers. Although the proposed plans for precinct change will re- auire two new precinct committeemen, it did not dispossess any present precinct committeeman or county board member. Rogers said the two new precinct committeemen will probably be appointed by the Republican : and Democratic parties until such time as they can run for election.

Phone 734-4J21 Changing the precincts will not effect voters, Rodgers said, until time for the next election. Under present election laws this would be in February of next' year for a county board election. Rodgers said It is very possible that election requirements may be changed before that time, however, and he said he would hesitate to name a certain time when such voters in the city might find it necessary to vote at a new polling place. Since'the addition of the proposed hew precinct would lower population In all of the precincts to below 800, the change would automatically do away with hiring talley judges. Rodgers said the savings effected by not having to hire talley judges would pay for the operation of the new polling place. Other business to be brought before the board Monday will Include the request for a liquor license at. Little Swan Lake, a proposal concerning a countywlde ambulance service, policy changes and appointments to the Warren County Housing Authority, the Warren County Advlsor y Eoard, and the Welfare Services Committee. •MONMOUTH:-: A 16-year-old Monmouth girl received'.second and third degree bums when she set a mattress on fire''at the Warren County jail Thursday night.
