On the same day, November 16, Natcher Carries County Constitution Reform Badly Beaten Peabody Strike Idles 900 Saturday began a strike that has closed six mines of the Peabody Coal Company, still in effect today with more than 900 Western Ken- tucky workers off the Job. The walkout, which was termed as unauthorized by the United Mine Workers union started at Peabody's Riverview Mine in Ohio County and spread to five other mines. The mines involved in the strike Ohio Countians soundly defeated the Commissioner Form of Govern- ment by a margin of 1,021 votes. The vote was For 1,163, Against 2,186. Not a single precinct In the county had a majority in favor of the change. This will probably re- solve the issue for some time to come unless those in favor decide to bring it before the voters again. John Sherman Cooper, Republican, carried the county by a landslide (note page 2). All offices in the Court House will be closed on November 11, L 1966. The Hartford Bank and the Citizens Bank will remain open as usual. .......... i A n accident which occurred on Ky. 69, 3 miles north of Dundee, involved a 1957 Ford driven by Jerry R. Puckett, 29, of Fordsville, a 1957 Chevrolet driven by Denver Phil- lips, 34, of Fordsville, and a 1951 Chevrolet driven by Mr. Clarence E. Burdette, 72, of Route 1, Fords- ville. The accident happened in front of the Providence Baptist Church. Mr. Burdette was attempting to turn around by backing onto the highway from the church drive. The cars driven by Mr. Puckett and Mr. PhilLips were traveling south and hit the Burdette car. The impact knocked Mr. Burdette into the ditch and the Phillips car hit Mr. Puckett and both cars went Into the ditch. The accident was attributed to the intense fog which blocked visibility. Puckett received a laceration of the lip. There were no other in- Juries occuring from the accident. Raymond Phillips, 12, of Fords- Wile was a passenger In the Puck- ett car. All three cars were considered as a total loss and total damage was estimated as approximately $800. Fog Attributes To Accident nor, J. J. Turner, Charles Vinson, Jas. O. Wallace, W. C.

Kendall Ross easily won over James Curtis for school board mem- ber. Ross received 348 votes, Cur- tis 222. Edith Woosley received 244 votes for school board member. She had no opposition. The surprise of the election was the terrific beating the Reformation of the Constitution received. Most "dopesters" predicted it would lose by a healthy margin, but few dreamed by such a gigantic one. The vote was Yes 545, No 3,657. It is likely to be a long time before another attempt is made to change our Constitution. King, E. F. Martin, Sr., Wm. S. and the number of workers idle at Democrat William H. Natcher re- Martin, D.
