Signed— C. V. GARDINER Mayor of the Village of I'ine Uiver A crowd of record proportions such as has never heen seen here in the history of any previous election dealing with local issues, jammed the ladling place iu the school auditorium Tuesday evening of this week, when 488 qualified voters of School District 19, cast their ballots In favor of the candidates they wished elected. The campaign which the supporters of tlie incumbents and aspirants alike, waged previous to the balloting Tuesday evening, was no doubt responsible for tlie record gathering, and it is perhaps regrettable that these same voters do not display a like amount of interest at every election. where by the free expression of their right to the ballot, they would strengthen the principles which are inculcated in the democratic system which extends these principles. For the three year term, with ' two directors to be elected, Gordon Oilman with 284 votes, and Wm. Burn- Ison witli 247, were chosen over Jack Knutson and Olen Gardner with 18S and INI, respectively. . For the two year term, two to be chosen, Ernest R, Johnson and Jack Seibert with 288 and 224 votes, were elected over John Rohr arid Homer fraser, with lit.'! and 173 votes. In regard to the annexation of the six sections in Barclay Township, the vote was 294-yeS and 159-no. Authorization for the board to sell the ten lots comprising the old school site, was given by 376 votes for ancl onlv 4."i against the issue. Your County Veterans Service offi- cer, .M. L. Alexander, .advises that the 11)47 state legislature passed an act providing for tihe sale of tax forfeited lands to veterans of World War II. This act provides that World War II veterans may secure rax forfeited lands, which may lie developed for agriculture under a simple procedure. An application should be filed with the County Board of the county in which tax-forfeited lands are located. This applica. on should be accompanied by a certified copy of the veteran's honorable discharge. To secure the land tiie veteran must pay tiie appraised value id' the land, plus the appraised value of improvements and standing timber. The County Board will provide a hearing at which lime tlie veteran may appear to state his qualifications and financial ability to develop the land. Down payment may lie as small as K» percent: of the appraised value and interest ut -1 percent per annum on the balance. A credit of $20 per acre will be allowed for each acre cleared and placed under cultivation up to the total cost oi' the land. A veteran .has five years from the date of sale to file for this credit. Applications may be accepted until June fit). 1040. This law offers an opportunity to Minnesota veterans who desire a. farm home.
