OREM - THE STEEL CElTER OF THE WEST Volume 12 Number 17 THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1945 J. W. Gillman ElectedlH.ffJs UKCOLH 25-7 Urem Lity Mayor Orland Pyne, Mrs. Ada Skinner Given Heavy Support From All Districts The People's ticket elected the majority of its candidates at last Tuesday's election. Orland Pyne, candidate for City Recorder, and Mrs, Skinner, candidate for City Treasurer, were apparently the ones who pulled the People's ticket over, because they made an outstanding race with heavy majorities majori-ties in each district. Mr. Pyne won with a majority of 862 out ot a total vote of 812. Mrs. Lincoln high school won the Class ' B football title last Fri day by defeating Pleasant Grove by the narrow margin of 13-12, and this Thursday met the Provo Champions on the BYU stadium where the Lincoln boys had the edgeovet Provo at the half, 7-6. .but the Provo Bulldogs mustered extra strength. in the last half to outscore Lincoln 25-7. . Skinner was not far behind with a majority of 312. J- W. Gillman, the People's candidate for Mayor, won a comparatively com-paratively close race with a majority ma-jority of 149 votes over W. P. Williams, Orem City Councilman. Council-man. Woodruf Jensen, People's candidate for four-year councilman council-man also had a majority of 149 over Murvel Walker, also a member of the City Council. Cilixen's Retain Control In the two years councilman group, where three were to be elected, Roy E. Gappmayer, member of the City Council, and on the Citizen's ticket was high man with a vote of 525. Vera Williams, on the People's ticket, was next with -a vote of 510. Ephraim Twitchell, Citizen's party, received a vote of 469, E. H. Johnson, People's ticket, was Mayor v J. w. GILLMAN Councilman 4-year Term ,s"s St"''.. " 1 s ' ' ji v VERM WILLIAMS Councilman 2-year Term ROY GAPPMAYER next high man with a vote of 429. George F. Wells followed closely with a vote of 328. While at the Tuesday election the People s ticket won the ma- ority of the places, yet It did not win control of the City Council, although It won the Mayors post, and two City Councilmen. The City Council has 5 mem bers, and the Mayor does not have a vote except in the case of a tie, and a tie cannot happen only when one member Is not present or does not vote. The new line-up xor tne Coun cil is as follows: James G. Strat- ton. Citizen party holdover mem ber: Roy E. Gappmayer, Citi zen's candidate, and Ephraim Twitchell, Citizen's candidate, This will give the Citizen's a ma jority of one in au matters be fore the Council. Contest Somewhat Sectional In the Mayoralty contest the voting seemed to be on sectional lines. In District No. 1, which is in North Qrem and Mr. Gill- man's home precinct, he receiv ed the vote of 156 to 34 for Mr. Williams, or a majority of 122. This majority was enough to decide de-cide the election. In Districts Number 3 and Number 4 Mr. Williams won a substantial ma jority. These Districts are in South Orem. In District No. 2, which Is partly ..North and part ly south orem. Mr. Gillman bad a majority big enough to over come Mr. Williom's majority in the two southern Districts, However, Gillman's 'margin of victory in Districts zT3, and was only 27 which indicates the closeness of the vote. Mr. Pyne and Mrs. Skinner were given a heavy support in all sections. Their popularity contributed largely to the success suc-cess of the People's ticket as it is generally conceded they could nave won on either ticket- The pre-election campaign was characterized by a public statement through the press of the Citizen's candidates program whose record, for that matter, was fairly well before the people, peo-ple, as they had been in power for some eight years. On the other hand the People's party did not present its views through the press or in any public meeting, meet-ing, but relied on handbills circulated only the day before election and on house to house canvas on the part of some candidates and their friends. Schools Drug In One extraneous issue which probably may have been very potent in the election was raised by the handbill. It concerned the matter of facilities for the schools and of equal distribution of the school system. Since the matter of locating and operating schools is not the duty or the right of the City ad ministration but belongs to the Board of Education, the bring ing in of this issue the day before be-fore the election proved to be a surprise. From at least two sec tions of the City it may have been the controlling factor in the election, that is in Districts No. 1 and 2, where it was the main theme in a whispering campaign. The defeat of V. Emil Hansen, as City Recorder, was expected by political prognosticators and by Mr. Hansen. Mr. Hansen had been in office some fourteen years, and each time has indicated indi-cated that he wished to retire, but pressure had been put on him to get him to carry on because be-cause of his intimate knowledge of City affairs.
