' Sure, and they'll have two fine Ifish names to choose between— those of Dr. James E. Mahoney, Wood River dentist of 714 Wood River avenue, veteran. Democratic committeeman in the precinct, and William (Pete) Maloney, of 20 Harnett, Wood River. Petitions of the two committeeman candidates, with surnames identical except for the third letter, were filed Monday at the office of County Clerk Eulalia Hotz and in the 5 p. m. drawing for first- place on the ballot, Dr. Mahoney won the top spot. Eighty-two Democratic and 45 Republican candidates for precinct committeeman offices filed petitions Monday for a place on the primary ballot. Ten contests ior committeeman posts developed from Monday's candidate filing, but none on the Republican.ticket. Two of the Democratic commil- teeman contests resulted in Wood River township, one in No. 3 precinct of Chouteau township, and seven in Granite City township. In Xo. 13 of Wood Paver township, John R. Walker, incumbent, and Guy Virgil Dilley are the contestants, while in Chouteau No. '2, Samuel Sanders, incumbent, is opposed by Albert E. Doerr. Women's Underwear Stolen Police about 6 p. m. Monday found in Rock Spring Park a parcel containing some women's underwear. Explanation came an hour later when report was made by two residents in the 500-block of East Broadway that garments from a wasliline on their rear I»rch had been taken during the afternoon. Police learned a youth, said to be about 18, had been seen on the porch. Lambert Rites'Thursday t t JANUA«Y in ^ tiOHiiiMtiitmiiimii*a0*Biii**im __ Spartans Test Blue Law Ban Special Election Finds Town Sharply Divided SPARTA, Jan. 17, OP>—A 122- year-old ban on Sunday entertainment in this southern Illinois city was tested today In a spirited special election. The Issue has become a aeriout one, sharply dividing Spartans. A citizens' commlteee working for repeal bf the Sunday blue law asked In campaign matter, "do you read the Sunday papers?" The repealers conceded that "everyone" reads the Sunday comics and claimed that wa» no worse than going to a movie on the Sab!bath. On the other side, a church group asked voters If they want "a wide open Sunday?" By "wide open," the churches' campaign matter pointed out that It was not so much the opening of Sparta's only movie on Sunday Uhat was opposed but that repeal i would permit public dancing, cir- l cuses, carnivals, pool halls or bowl- j ing alleys to operate on the Sab- I bath. j Both sides provided free rides to ! the polls, just like in a full-fledged general election. Observers predicted the turnout of voters would top a previous high of 1800 in a city election three years ago. To understand the situation you have to know that Sparta was founded by pioneering Scotch Presbyterians 122 years ago. Their i customs, taught to succeeding gen- orations, barred Sunday entertainment on a commercial basis. This custom never was challenged until a showman opened his theater on a Christmas week Sabbath in 1935. Such a clamor arose that an election was called and by a 100-vote margin commercial Sunday entertainment was banned by law. Now the citizens' committee, backed by the theater interests, claim Spartans flock to Sunday shows in surrounding towns. One qualified observer said the younger Spartans are more lib- era! minded and he predicted today's vote? would repeal the old blue law.
