Bom) Vote Is Ruled Invalid, Forest City Up at Forest City, an interpretation by bond attorneys of the voting on a proposed bond issue for construction of a new high school, has resulted in defeat of the measure after it was first believed it had passed by a margin of two votes. At the conclusion of the vote it was announced that the measure had carried by 671 tc 444, two votes more than the necessary 60 percent. There were 27 spoiled ballots which Were thrown out befdre the count Was made. Chapman & Cutler, bond attorneys in Chicago, advised the Forest City school board, how ever, that without a court test to prove otherwise, the vote needed to have 60 percent of the total vote cast, including the spoiled ballots, to be l$gaT. As a result, it seemed that an other election will have to be held on the $450,060 proposition.
