Argentina (AP) — Argentina's voters today pushed a country doctor toward the presidency of South America's second largest nation and also gave a setback to exiled dictator Juan D. Peron. Only 14 per cent of the voters heeded the Peronist call to cast blank ballots in Sunday's election. In previous elections boycotted by Peronists, blank ballots have tun as high as one third of the vote. It appeared, that about 2 million of Argentina's 11.5 million eb'gible voters stayed home despite fines prescribed in the compulsory voting law. This could be due to resentment at the barring from the race of the Peronist candidate, Vincente Solano Lima, who had been the favorite. Arturo Illia, 62, held a steady lead as counting of the votes continued, but he fell far short of the 51 per cent required for election. Voters cast ballots for electors pledged to the presidential candidates, not for the candidates. The Electoral College will meet July 31 to name a president. Since no candidate got 51 per cent of the vote, the electors are free to switch. If no candidate gets a 51 per cent vote in the Electoral College, the election is thrown into Congress. There the choice is cm- fined to the top three in the Electoral College voting. With about half the vote counted, government figures gave Illia, 1,173,000 votes, or about 25 per cent. Dr. Oscar Alende, former governor of Buenos Aires Province, had 82-4,430 votes,' and re tired Gen. Pedro Aramburu, a former provisional president, had 805,717. "Don Nadie"—Mr. Nobody the popular name given to the blank ballots was fourth with 680,960. Seven other candidates Three people were ticketed by Alton Police in two separate auto accidents Sunday. Jesse James Gater, 19, 909 Rock St., Alton was charged by Alton police with a traffic violation after his car jumped the curb and ran onto statehouse circle and striking a utility pole guy wire >i\ route.

Percy at Edwardsville Campaigns with Vigor B.v CAROL CLAttktft Trlegmph Stnff Writef EDWARDSVILLE — Five days after announcing his candidacy for governor of Illinois. Charles H. Percy, and an energetic group of Evanston High School boys, demonstrated Saturday in Edwardsville that the New Frontier hasn't cornered the market on youth and vigor. Speaking briefly in city park, Percy, 43, chairman of Boll and Howell, member of the board of Chase Manhattan Bank and keynoter of the 1960 GOP convention, said that his decision to run for the office had been based on the answers to three questions: What does liis family think of the idea? Could hn receive a "recess" from business responsibiities? Could he actually contribute to the political life of'the state? Describing what he said were the major problems of the state, he said that Illinois industry is being by-passed in the jet age and cited the electronics industry, railroads and the Chicago stock To Be 85 Sunday William T.

W. Day said today. The project is one provided for by the general obligation bond issue for storm sewer extensions. The extension to be considered at the meeting is from Washington Avenue at Crawford Street to Seminary Avenue. Plans for the relief sewer were recently completed by the city's consultant engineers, Sheppard Morgan & Schwaab, and, in letters today, Day is informing the 19 property owners whose lots must be crossed that construction can begin as soon as necessary easements have been obtained. "To expedite the securing of easements," says the mayor's letter, "I have set a meeting in the council chambers of City Hall for 7:30 p.m. July 17- At this meeting, all property owners affected wil have, opportunity to examine the plans and have the project explained by the engineers. Eliminate Unpleasant Conditions "It l« hoped that necessary easements can be obtained at this meeting so that construction can proceed at once and unpleasant conditions he eliminated." , , u Tl>« project now being launch- ftg jji one Q| several planned lor Up Upper Alton area to better drainage conditions and provided for under the sewer improvement program by a lump sum allocation of $250,000. Its promary purpose, said Public Works Director Paul A. Lenz is to relieve a present inadequate drainage system immediately north of College Avenue. It calls for a new 21- inch duct which will cross many private properties, and calls for enclosure of the easterly section, just west of Seminary Street, of a present open drainage ditch which has been a source of complaint. The drainage line would be at a depth of about 11 feet and would not preclude later erection of buildings over it. No estimate of the cost has yet been made available by the consultant engineers, said Lenz. Preliminary plans for the storm sewer show that it will tap catchbasins on Washington at Crawford, and at Main. Clawson, and Seminary which it crosses on its eastward route a block to half block to the north of College Avenue. It also will pick up the flow, west of Seminary, of an existing section of storm sewer, and then the flow of an open ditch. The duct would terminate a short distance east of Seminary. Mayor Day said this morning that if necessary easements over private lots and tracts can be obtained quickly, he sees no reason the project shouldn't be carried forward this construction year.
