Group Institutes Suit To Challenge Validity Of Vote Registration TAYLOR VILE. ILL. — (AP) — Challenging the validity of Illinois' new statewide permanent voters' registration act, a taxpayers' group petitioned for a temporary Injunction today in Christian county circuit court to restrain County Clerk Prentiss Fellers from purchasing supplies and"e<julpinehrto^cafry"ouT provisions oi the act. Their petition contended the act entailed undue expense and financial-hardship on the taxpayers, and Involved delegation of excessive powers to county clerks. Enacted by the legislature this year, the new law provides that all Illinois voters must be registered under a permanent card index registry system in order to be eligible to vot* in the 1942 senatorial and congressional elections. Expense of the J«gistration, which has been unofficially estimated at over $500.000 for dowrwfat* counties, must be paid out of county funds. Thi act does not apply to the primary next April. Prior to enactment of the statute, permanent voters deglstratlon was limited lo_ Chicago And nine-do wn= state cities having election commissions. County clerks, are designated as registration supervisors under the statewide act. sponsored in the general assembly by Rep. Clinton Searle (R-Rock Island). The suit here was started by group headed by James Humphrey^ president of the Taylorville association of commerce, and William M. Administration Plans Convoy Escort Ships Adm. Stark Reveals WASHINGTON — (AP) — The $5.98o.000.6oo second lend-lease bill reached the senate today from its appropriations committee along with hitherto unpublished testimony that $325.000.000 of the money has been earmarked for 50 "convoy escort" ships. Other tc.stimony, made public by the committee in reporting the measure late yesterday, disclosed that it might become necessary to divert some of the new appropriation for aid to Russia, and that present funds ..for..purchase of food for Great Britain will be exhausted by the end of this month. The bill will be taken up for de- bale tomorrow with prospects of speedy "passage. Chairman Adams (D-Colo! said the subcommittee handling the appropriations did nof include 150,000.000 additional recently asked by President Roosevelt for war relief activities, because members thought this should be handled in a "separate measure. Admiral H&roldvR, Stark, chief of naval operations, testified concerning the need for 50 escort ships for convoy work. But. as in the case of moM'bf the witnesses appearing on the bill, much of his testimony was deleted from the printed record due to its confidential nature. ^ Stark also Was questioned about a $50,000.000 item for ,use In buying material for unspecified British naval bases and of another $10,680.000 item for a British naval base in Ice- UoiTlarcesT the Iceland base if and when the Americans relieved the British "entirely."
