Coolest Place In Town It was a heated election yesterday in the city, but workers at Precinct Three of the Second ward stayed cool—too cool. The polling place is at Angell School, and custodians there had put off ordering more coal because of this week's spring vacation. Coal was sent as soon as the lack of heat was discovered, but it was too late to heat the building. Working on the returns while wearing their coats are (left to right, seated) Mrs. G. L. Buhrman Jr., Mrs. Leonard K. Eaton, Mrs. Curcy T. Bell and Mrs. Dan Sekaros. Standing are Ben Dushnik and Mrs. Dale Boyles. The coal furnace is one of the few left in the school system.
