Mr. Searle concisely dwelt upon, what he stated were only a few ot his objections to the proposed new basic law. In conclusion. Attorney Searle said: "I wanted to be for the new constitution. I labored hard and diligently to bring a boat an elec tion to call for h, constitutional con vention. I had hoped for a draft of a basic law which would be a great step forward in the possibilities of this state. As the one upon which we are called to vote Dec. 12 has so many faults and uncertainties, I am compelled to honestly oppose iL I had hoped for a constitution ot greater ( rights and privileges Practical Answer to is found in the Selection of Electrical Appliances for Personal or Home Use.
