The republican party central com mittee has named Harvey Williams to run for police magistrate on the ticket, to fill the vacancy occasioned when Frank Cjistafson decided to run on the peoples' party ticket. Mr. Gus tafson. who is the present magistrate, bears the unique distinction of having received the nomination from the re publican, . democratic and peoples' parties at the recent' primaries, and his decision to run on' . the latter ticket also leaves a vacancy on the democratic ticket. . Custafson was elected. to the office he now hold. four years' ago on the peoples' ticket and decided to run on the saiue ticket again and uphold the party which elected him. The elec tion w ill be held April 21.

This information developed at the meeting of the committee at noon today. Attorney Shallberg, who was sent to Chicago to interview Wood & Oakley, bonding attorneys, reported that the state laws require that a project of this nature be submitted to a vote of the people. Consequently the Ciripp tract adjoining Browning field cannot be annexed as part of the playground without permission of the voters. The Chicago attorneys were also of the opinion that the proposed plan of forming a stock company to finance the improvements would be equiva lent to a bond issue and illegal with out the issue being voted on.
