Bond Issue Vote
Marriott D. Phifer, Ward 5 com
missioner and candiate for re-elec
tion, issued a statement Thursday
morning concerning the forthcoming
election and urged full support of
(he bond issue election.
Mr. Phifer. who Is being opposed
by Hal D. Ward, said, "I am support
ing in full the tflree bond Issues be
ing offered at the May 10th elec
tion. The city can't move forward by
? sitting Mill, and I am against the
principle of collecting city taxes and
not providing basic city services
such as water and sewerage. Pas
sage of the bond Issues is the only
way to provide these services.
"I am also supporting in full the
stadium bonds. In this connection,
t would like to clarify a motion I
made at a meeting of the city board
several months ago which was to
' close the stadium. This motion was
made In an effort to discontinue the
wasteful policy of temporary Im
provements and to bring about more
quickly the permanent improve
ments which will be provided If the
stadium bonds are approved. At
any visitor to the stadium knows,
the stands are in danger of fallings
down, with possible severe Injury
to many, and the sanitary facilities
are not worthy of the name.
"I believe in ffir play," Mr. Phifer
continued. "If re-eleoied, I shall
strive, ?s I have during the past two
years, to serve not only the cfctzens
of Ward 5, but the citizens of the
whole community, with fairness to
all, and without special favors for
any individual or croup."
