Genprally. the reaction was favorable, but the opponent* were the morr vociferous. The majority of those favoring instalia- •Uon were cautious in their statements, usually qualifying what tney «id by adding that they'd "like to an the meters tried out." Most of the opponents to th* pro* position went back to the statement that "there would be plenty of rflfcm on the street* if Tom. Dick and would 'not drive down town und p»rk all day In front of somebody'* else place of business." Some said that they knew of people who went out every hour or twtr and changed their cars fo as to avoid the two hours parkins limit, etc. Others said they knew or people who lived over stores or within a few blocks of the downtown district who parked their cars early Saturday evenings so as to have a place In which to sit durtnc the evening. Many people who were against parking meters when the question came up a few years ago ar* now the heartiest advocates for them, claiming that they have. inve«u- gated and found cities which took them out are now putting them back. Others Mid that it would noire the rfrrHpf problem, while still others ••nn1n1 that it would bring a lot of much needed revenue Into the rtty treasury. Strangely, the time-worn state- Bent that it would drive the farmers aut of town was heard but little.
