Los Angeles, California (UP) – (Nov. 4)
A soldier home from the wars needn’t share his living room with an election board and the neighborhood voters, Area Rent Director David Barry Jr. said today in giving the room back to Lt. B. M. Garrett.
His landlady had rented it out for a polling place.
Lt. Garrett can legally throw out the board and the entire neighborhood as trespassers, Mr. Barry ruled.
