)i JOHN LABRESH and Dana Christiansen are king and queen of the Southside School May Day Festival. The event is scheduled for 1 p.m. May 2 at the school and will include musical numbers by each grade about our American Heritage in keeping with the theme "American Medley". ice The Shelton City Commission voted to buy one new police patrol car and advertise for bids for another when they met Tuesday. Bids on a new patrol car for the police department had been opened previously. The commission voted to accept the bid of Mell Chevrolet for $2,950 plus trade in as the lowest and best bid. Other bidders were Jim Pauley Ford Mercury, whose bid was $3,150 and State Motors of Olympia, whose bid was $2,938.45. Police Chief Frank Rains told the commission while the State Motors bid was $12 lower, part of the specifications for the new car j.ciuded the installation ~ t the red light, siren and radio equipment. The State Motors bid, Rains said, did not include these items and the firm had stated their shop was not equipped to do this work. Rains said when the cost of having this installation work done outside the bidder's shop was considered, the cost of the State Motors vehicle would be above tile cost of the Mell vehicle. Mayor Frank Travis stated that because of an accident in which one of the police patrol cars suffered what will probably be total damage, the department was down to two older cars and that it would take about 60 days for tile new car which had just been purchased to get here. He recommended that bids be advertised for a standard model four-door sedan which would be available soon after the bids were opened and a contract awarded. Rains was authorized to advertise for bids for this type of vehicle. A representative of the Shelton Eagles Lodge appeared at the commission meeting to ask permission to use Callanan Park for a camping site during a youth convention the lodge is planning here May 15 and 16. The Eagles representative stated he had contacted Park and Recreation Board Chairman Arnold Fox and that it was all right with the park board if the city commission approves. The commission asked the Eagles representative to submit a written request and stated they would like to study the request for a week. It was announced the city's annual clean-up week would be the first week in May. Those interested in having city crews pick up material during clean up week are asked to contact city hall. Material must be placed along the street curb or in an alley where the city crew can get it without going on private property. orris Ge A new attorney was appointed for William Morris, 28, Shelton, when he appeared for arraignment in Mason County Superiox Court Friday on four counts of first degree assault.

According to the school's constitution, the person who submits his completed petition to the elections committee first will get his name first on the ballot. This rule was not followed by the committee, the senate decreed. The name of a secretary candidate was missing from the first ballots, which also made the elections unfair, according to the decision.
