Because the Conservative Party I is the onlv recognized partv in the upcoming East Syracuse election, election law dictates that its candidates get the top billing of Row A on the ballot. If the four candidates mayoral candidate Tony Alba- nese, trustee candidates Debbie Fmersoa and Erik Carlson, and incumbent Justice Francis J Murphy Jr. also obtain enough independent nominating petitions by the Feb 8 deadline, they also will appear on Row C. The People's Party, mean- while, will have Row B.

Vacant buildings should be town renewal will not create a traffic disaster. There needs to be more places where young people can gather and express themselves other than at bars in Armory Square. One possibility would be to make a cultural comdor attached to Armory Square to give people such as artists and musicians a new creative outlet.
