At 331 voting places in Marion county, voters Tuesday will record their choices for the congressional, legislative, and county nominees who Will comprise the Republican and Democratic tickets in the fall elec tion. Polls will be open from 6 a. m. to 6 p. m, with each voter allowed three minutes in the booth. No registration is required for voting Tuesday. Qualifications to vote require the voter shall be 21, or 21 by Nov. 4, 1930, date of the general election; a citizen of the United States; who. Tuesday, is a bona fide resident of the precinct in which he votes, and who has not be disfranchised. Votes Only One Party In the primary, the voter votes only for the candidates of one party. He receives but one ballot —either Republican or Democratic. Every qualified voter is entitled to vote for the candidates of a party, provided he voted for a majority of the can didates of such party at the last pre ceding general election. In addition to voting for candi dates for representative in con gress, the legislature and county offices, the primary voter partici pates'directly in the election of the precinct committeemen of his party in his precinct, and the delegates who shall represent him in the state convention of his party. Every safeguard will be estab lished to prevent disorders at the polls and to insure an honest count of the ballots, election commission ers declared today. Twelve Republican and twelve Democratic deputy commissioners have been named to answer reports of disorder or dishonesty. Deputy prosecutors will be on call at the prosecutor’s office and Police Chief Jerry Kinney has ordered police men on twelve-hour shifts election day. Candidates Listed Candidates for the following of fices in each political party will be nominated in Marion county Tues day: Representatives in congress; state senators and representatives’; judges of the superior, criminal, pro bate and juvenile courts; pros ecuting attorney; county treasurer, auditor, sheriff, recorder, clerk, surveyor, coroner, assessor, commis sioners and eounCilmen; township trustees, assessor justices of the peace and advisory board members’. Those elected outright in the primary, instead of being nominated, are precinct committeemen and delegates to the state conventions. A plurality is sufficient for nomi nation in the primary. Where more than one are to be nominated for an office, such as state representa tives, the candidates receiving the most votes, (to the number of nom inations to be filled ) are nominated. By clipping the list of candidates to be found in today's Times, and Dy mark’ng choices in advance, vot ers will save time at the polls. Be cause of their length, lists of candi dates for township offices and pre cinct committeemen are not printed. The names of candidates who were unopposed for nominations do not appear on the ballot. Make Official Changes County chairmen were called upon today to make 231 changes in their selection for precinct election judges, inspectors, sheriffs, clerks and assistant clerks, as the result of returns to the county election commission of letters carrying notices of appointment. In the past, the notices were car ried on postal cards and no returns were made, but this year in order to forestall the naming of dummy officials the notices were inclosed in envelopes bearing return addresses Many notices were sent to John Doe addresses, such as John Smith, Arthur Jones. William Brown and so forth. When dummy officials were appointed, as in the past, and none appeared for duty, the or ganization representative would single out some known faithful ■worker to take the vacancy. The Republicans had 90 per cent of the returns. RITES ARRANGED FOR GEORGE B. BOWERS Retired Building Contractor Dies; Funeral to Be Tuesday.

Predictions of a heavy primary vote over the state were made to day in localities where there are bitter organization fights. Staet-wide interest is at a low ebb, principally because no state nominations are to be made in the primary, the highest office contest ed being representative in congress. In Lake county, where Ralph Bradford is attempting to wrest control of the county organization from Walter Schrage, claimant to the mayorship of Whiting, a heavy vote is predicted. For the first time in years Demo crats are accorded a chance in the Thirteenth district. Vote to Be Light In St. Joseph county proper the vote is expected to be light. The Democrats have steam roilered all opposition to the organization ticket except for a few minor posts, while the Republicans had difficulty in finding candidates to fill the ticket. Floyd Fishburn, a former treasurer of the klan, opposing Roy H. Wolfe for the Republican nomination for sheriff, is making the only race in the county. Samuel B. Pettingill is expected to win the Democratic nomination for congress and will oppose Andrew J. Hickey, incumbent, in the fall on a wet and dry issue. In Vigo county, Democrats are taking an active interest in the Re publican primary because of the long bipartisan combination be tween Postmaster Hays and Dick Werneke. At Evansville Judge Charles A. Bock, candidate for renomination and leader of the “reform” crowd in the Republican ranks, convened the grand jury, when it was re ported trainloads of Negroes were being brought in for the primary. Democrats Are Split The Democrats in Vanderburgh county also are split as a result of the fight of City Judge Charles Eichel, backed by John Jennings to wrest control of the organization from Mayor Frank Griese. At Muncie, Mayor George E. Dale is facing his first popularity test. Adherents of Albert Vestal, in cumbent congressman, are charging that Joe Davis, prosecutor and Re publican candidate for congress, and Paul S. Brady, county chairman have formed a coalition with the Democratic Mayor Dale to obtain the nomination of Davis. This “bipartisan” cry has been carried through the Eighth district in behalf of Vestal and is expected to score aid. Seven incumbent congressmen in the state have no opposition. They are Arthur H. Greenwood (Dem.), Second district; James W. Dunbar (Rep.), Third district; Harry C. Canfield (Dem.), Fourth district; Fred S. Purnell (Rep.), Ninth dis trict; Will E. Wood (Rep.), Tenth district; David Hogg (Rep.), Twelfth district, and Andrew J. Hickey (Rep.), Thirteenth district, OPERATOR KILLED AS COAL CRANE UPSETS Engineer’s Body Is Crushed Beyond Recognition in Accident.
