Parrott added that there is no need to conserve water for external use, etc. Although boiling water for human consumption is a necessary precaution, it has no effect whatsoever on the nitrate level. Therefore, expectant mothers and parents of in- rants are asked to seek an- other source of drinking water. In the Ripley town elec- tion, April 5, Lana Richard- son was elected as city clerk with 42 votes over the utility clerk, Corn Stewart's 24 votes. The Journal inadvert. antly named Mrs. Stewart as the City Clerk in a story in May 5 issue. Lana Richardson's office is located at the tag agency, and she was not available by telephone for further com meat concerning the town water problem. Your vote cancelled? Did you vote in the state- wide elections last Fall? If not you will soon be receiv- ing a notice that your voter registration will be can- celled as of June 1 unless the notice is signed and returned to the county election board in the county in which you are registered. Nolda Selph, Secretary of the Payne County Election Board, requests all voters who will be leaving for the summer to leave a forward- ing address so the notifica- tion will be delivered. The +notification will be mailed prior to June 1. If the voter signs the card and re- turns it to the county election board by June 30 the regis- tration will be automatically re-instated. If the voter fails to return the signed card that person's registration will be cancelled and the voter must re -register. Payne County has 5,664 voters who failed to vote in any of the three (3) state- wide elections in 1976. No- tices will be mailed to each. Ms. Selph said her office is interested in seeing that each receives the notifica- tion and asks the cooperation of voters in leaving a for- warding address.
