HEATHCLIFF HE-JOUBNAl— S.)u,j.y Morning, April 5, l«75 Regional Elections Expected To Bring Large Turnouts By GORDON ZEIGLER Avalanche-Journal Staff Today's march to the polls may well boil with controversy and several races could bring record turnouts in the area. Voting booth crusades could decide whether women and youth gain footholds on more South Plains city councils and school boards. Seats on SO school boards and 49 councils are being vacated. The potentially explosive issue of busing to achieve racial desegregation has split the Plainview school electorate into two factions. Ordered by the Department of Health, Education and Welfare to correct an over-balance of minority youths in east city elementary schools. Plain view trustees drew a. plan that included busing. Four candidates, backed by anti-busing parents, favor a clash with government, even a court fight, to save the neighborhood school concept. Five other candidates support the school board in a race that will decide that city's future posture on the touchy issue. Some observers say as many as 7,000 coufd vote in Plain - dates vying for three council seats include D.C. Foy, a retired farmer; Joe Hutcheson, farmer; H.L. McPherson, owner of Farmers Service Company; Jose Rosaies, owner of R & C Welding; and David Sears, Wolfforth postmaster.
