Board Of Elections James Registrars,

WM. V. FARMER
Fred E. Freeiman, chairm;'.n of
the Madison County board tif elec
tions, denied that William V. Farm
er, the Republican member of the
three-member board, submitted a
list of registrars and judges for con
sideration at the meeting of the
board here last Saturday. "I knew
he had some sort of piece of paper
in his hand but he would not give
t to me," he said.
Freeiman said Farmer's protest
arose, instead, over efforts "to get
rid of this pistol-packing bunch
iown here." Freeman said he was
referring to the Walnut Creek pre
cinct. "Due to previous trouble at
this polling place, we thought it best
to change the Walnut Creek polling
pljace to Marshall," Mr. Freeman
"We get in trouble sometimes
down her," 1 Freeman said, "and I
told him (Farmer) that we wanted
to pick a bunch' of people who would
give us an honest election."
The board ordered a new registra
tion of voters in the precinct designat
ed as "No 1 Township, Ward 1 (Mar
shall), which now includes the pre
cinct heretofore designated as No. 1
Township Ward 4 (Walnut Creek).

courthouse at 10:45 o'clock to be
there in plenty of time for the
'swearing in" ceremonies and or
ganizational meeting of the board.
'The meeting was scheduled to be
held at 11:00 o'clock but I kept wait

11:15 I was notified -that the two
other members (Democrats) were
upstairs in a back room and for me

jhere, he told Mr. Freeman and Mr.

"After 1' had been sworn in, I
returned to the back room where the
organizational meeting was held.

"They had already selected all the
Republican judges before the boara
