To Casting Ballot Furnished
In Statement
From Ross
"Due to the fact that so many
>f the voting populace are in the
irmed forces, in defense work or
iway from his or her voting pre:incts
engaged in private industry.
it is the duty of the members
of such persons' immediate
family to see that the proper applications
are gotten to them in
tVne that they may be returned
in time to be cast as absentee
otes in the General Election to
be held Nov. 3rd this year," said
Dave Ross, chairman of the board
>f elections, this week.
"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

"Considerable confusion has
arisen in connection with the recent
conservation Order M-208 re-1
striding the use of certain grades
and kinds of softwood lumber,"
says J. E. Dodson, chairman of
the Brunswick N. S. D. A. War
Board.
"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. By this we mean
that the user may be extended
an A-l-a preference rating byj
