He reiterated his appeal that every, qualified voter register this year in order that he or she will be eligible Jo vote in the November, election. Lomenzo pointed out that while this is- generally consid- ered an off-year election \this Fall's balloting is especially important since New York vot- ers will be asked to approve the recommendations of . the State Constitutional Conven- tipn which will present a new Constitution;\—; --' —•\\'\ The amended election law requires .that, beginning with the general election in 1967, all elections in the state shall be held under the system .of Permanent tjon.

Thereafter their registration will remain in ef- fect so long as they vote at least once, in every two years and reside at the same ad- dress. He also noted that the orig- inally scheduled registration ; dcys were amended \by legis- lation in deference to Jewish religious holidays; - Any registration day which was scheduled lor Oct. 5 and Oct.: 6 has been changed to Oct. 9 and Oct. 3, respectively. It was Lomenzo who, also, recently announced that ! > \Headlines\- will appear over the proposition and two pro- jx>sed Constitutional amend- ments on the voting machine so that they will be readily identified by the voter. This will speed the voting process on election day, he said. Robert Markum, Richard LaPoint, Marine Training Two area men are going through recruit training at Par- ris Island, S. C, a.

Applications for a permit will be accepted from Sept. 14 through Oct. 4 by mail or in person. Correspondence should be addressed to: Regional Game Manager, New York State Conservation Depart- ment, Stamford, N. Y. 12167. An applicant must submit .his name, address and registration number from his 1967-68 small game hunting license. This marks the fifth consecu- tive, wild turkey season in the Catskill section of the state. In 1967 one hunter in 24 took a turkey. - Prospects for the 1967 sea- son, according to . regional game manager John J. Wha-' len, are \brighter than a year ago.\ More broods have been spotted and, despite • a wet summer season, ..survival has,, been good. However, because turkey hunting requires a great deal of skill, few hunters are expected to come away with a Thanksgiving Day trophy. Permits and an attached questionnaire must be returned to the Department's Stamford office following the close of the season. In addition, a hunter fortunate enough to kill a tur- key is required to send in one leg of the bird so the age arid sex of the bird may be de- termined. . - Because the Department is keeping close tabs on the suc- cess of its program to estab- lish turkeys in the eastern part of the state, some birds have been banded while others have miniature radios attached. Successful hunters are request- ed to turn in vices. A $10 all.research de- reward will be paid upon surrender of a transmitter. ;. Nurses: \ Set Meetings atertown Dr. Mildred S.
