"For this reason I am herewith citing such articles and sections 9f the absentee balloting law was passed by the General Assembly sf 1939 and which was not amended by the 1^41 session of that body. "The first requisite to voting an absentee ballot is that he or she is duly registered on the registration books of the precinct or ward in which he or she desires to vote. "The second is that a proper request in writing be delivered to the chairman of your county board of elections not before the 4th day of October or later than November the first in this present year by the voter or a member of his or her immediate family, that is to say his lawful wife, his brother, sister parent, or child only." "The .above is contained in chapter 159 of Public Laws of 1939 and sections No. 1 and No. 2. The Chairman of the county board of elections upon receipt of the proper written application shall issue the ballots with the certificate required by the application and shall either deliver to the voter in person; by mail; Dr to the members of his or her immediate family making the request for some to be mailed by them to the voter. "The voter upon receipt of same shall immediately go before an officer having an impres sion seal and, under oaui, xin m the proper forms signing them before the officer have the impression seal placed thereon and return by mail in the envelope prepared and furnished by the chairman along with the ballot for that purpose. "If a voter is in the armed forces of the United States the signature of his commanding officer or any commissioned officer of the Branch of service of which he is a member as a witness shall have the same force and effect of the jurat of an officer with a seal. "I wish further to call the attention of officer with impression seals who are called on to witness signature on absentee certificates. "Section No. 11 chapter 159 P L. 1939. "Any person authorized to administer oaths who wilfuly signs a certificate that any person has subscribed and sworn to an affidavit for use in obtaining an absent voters application as absent voters affidavit or any other purported affidavit refered to and required by the act when as a matter of fact he has not administered the oath to such person, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and upon conviction shall be fined not (Continued on Page 2.)

"After a very thorough study of the order, it has been interpreted to mean that the lumber restricted for use under Order M208 is available for (a) construction of agricultural buildings, other than dwellings, and (b) for the maintenance and repair of agricultural buildings, including dwellings. | "All orders for softwood lumber to be used for the purpose of (a) and (b) above will be assignl ed and automatic preference rat> ing of A-l-a, effective as of Sep. tember 7, 1942.
