Learning It Snot yet In hand, he continued-, I "I'm definitely -'hi favor of an! ordinance for registration, provld- j i mg the cost to the city may net: be prohibitive t want to see this proposal carried over to the new administrative year tor reference to the nejrt city counsellor." Alderman Warren expressed regret that any definite action by the present council would die when It adjourns 'sine die" a» the council reorganization. "But", he added, "this matter certainly can be brought up again by those aldermen holding-over to become members of the new council", Alerman Parker then explained absence of tlie proposed Armbruster ordinance, "It was the town attorney's Intention to offer such a measure", said he, "but because the time of this council to act was so limited, a suggestion was adopted to defer presentation of the ordinance until the council reorganization." Parker added that he felt the council should also consider the somewhat broader step possible under state law of establishing here an election board, thus providing a neutral body that would be in full charge of all election arrangements and balloting. "'This type of multiple voting which has been aired since the recent election is nothing new," he commented. "It's just a situation handed down from the past. But the correction may cost something. We may have to find a means to defray the cost that will require some study. But this can readily be taken up when the new council comes Into being." The letter from the VFW which touched off the discussion then was received for \the files. The letter utges city official's support to combat abuses of the ballot and —though it does not mention permanent registration- is presumed to be a request for favorable council action on a measure to be introduced which will provide permanent registration of voters in Alton elections. The letter, over the name of Hattie Frey, auxiliary president, states: "At a recent check of the poll books of the election held April 7, evidence was established that our sacred right to vote had been greatly abused. "We, mothers, wives, sisters and daughters of-the veterans who have fought and died to preserve our freedom, feel that this' is a direct j threat to • our democratic form of government. Not to make a protest would be to silently condone this un-American conduct, and betray the ones who have made the sacrifice to defend our Constitution. "We are willing to assume our share of tho blame for any con- 'ditions existing that may have been caused by our indifference and neglect in the past.
