• "There are 4,672 citizens of Lawrence who are ready and qualified to vote on the Adoption of the Commission Form of Government for this city at the special election which will be held on April 28. A summing up of the registration figures shows an increase of 94 registrations over the totals for the municipal election on April first -- 94 persons registered for the purpose of voting on the Commission Form. The poll books closed last night at ten o'clock at the City Clerk's office. At the special election on April 28 the question of Commission government will be the only issue and the indications are that there will be a heavy vote cast at this time. It is expected that almost the entire registered vote will be out at this time."

---and now seems we need a ward system to properly represent ourselves.

I wish I could get those derned autoists to keep it down outside my home too!
