We are speaking of the election for membership on the Jeff- erson County Board of Education. In this election Democrats, Republicans and Independents may and will all receive the same ballot: a non-partisan ballot upon which will be printed ten names. The voter will have the opportunity to vote for two. tie may vote for only one, if he so desires, and he may if that is his preference refuse to vote for any.

A belligerent, experienced and extremely com- petent lawyer, in an effort to get his client released from jail, ad- vanced some highly technical and well-reasoned arguments to ac- complish that purpose.

Its members are a board of directors, charged, within generally defined limitations, with the responsibility for the management of the corporate affairs. In many respects it is unlike a private corporat- ion. The common stockholders of the corporation are the voters, and the election is nothing more or less than a stock- holders meeting to choose two of the five members 'of the Board. Certain common sense rules that are used generally by stockholders in voting for directorship on private boards of directors can and should be used irr voting for membership FRESH 9 maybe too optimistic a thought.
