Only One Change Ada Residents Vote On Revised Charter decided whether or By GEORGE GURLEY On March 20 voters in Ada will go to the polls in a municipal elec- tion to select councilmen. They will, however, vote on another matter. They not to amend the present city charter. There is no reason for alarm .on the part of local resi- dents. With one exception, only minor changes are reflected in the new document and the one major change is an alteration that local students of government have long felt to be needed. This change simply permits in- stitution of a "staggered" term system on the council so that the entire council does not go out of office, at the Such Sn arrangement does much to con- tribute to.continuing stabib'ty and efficiency in city affairs. Under the new arrangement, two coun- cilmen would be elected in one year and the other three would stand the following year. All coun- cilmen would continue to serve two-year terms as they now do. All the other changes are insti- tuted only 'to "update" the char- ter and clear-up certain ambigui- ties which have arisen since its adoption in 1946. The original document, which has served as a model for many cities, was largely the work of Dr. Charles F. Spencer, president of East Central State College. Dr. Spencer also headed the committee which spent some months evaluating changes thought necessary in the charter. Other committee members were Vernon Roberts, Jim Armstrong, Ed Gwin and D. C. Willoughby. The entire membership of the commiftee strongly urges approv- al of the new document. Following is a breakdown of the changes in the charter. (These changes were double-checked both with Dr. Spencer and J; B. David- son, city manager.1 to insure no change.-; were overlooked.) Mayor and vice-mayor: (new) elected by the council for one- year terms, (old) elected-for indef- inite terms, fixed by council.

Merit system: (new) creates framework for a merit system, establishing job classification and set. up a personnel board and out- lines its functions and rights and the procedures for any hearings before such a board in relation to a suspended or discharged em- ploye, (old) silent in this area. Nepotism: out that if a man is on the city payroll and has a relative selected to the ing of four-year scholarships to thousands of needy medical stu- dents. But the No. 1 item on today's list was what Kennedy termed the "gap in our self-financed, contrib- utory social insurance hospital, nursing home, clinical and visiting nurse care for all men and women of 55 or more who are eligible for Social Securi- ty benefits. Its chances have not been rated high this session. But administra- tion officials professed to see hope that increasing pressure from vot- ers would bring action before Con- gress members go home to face the voters next fall.' Attack Kennedy hit at both the favorite arguments of his the plan .would lead to "socialized medicine" and that private health plans can meet the need.
