CAPTION: For many years, the Conservation Department was literally missing the boat in its efforts to carry out intensive fisheries studies on the Great Lakes. That was all to change in July 1967 when a new, modern equipped vessel was to be launched. In other Onaway News, the final tabulation of votes for the Onaway city election were completed. A total of 222 votes were cast: 43 percent of eligible voters in the city voted. There were three in the race for commissioner Robert Tucker, Newton W. Chapman and William Ormsbee. Tucker was clearly the people's choice, garnering 50 percent of the votes. Chapman won the other seat. In the race for constable, candidate Newton Chapman Jr. received 167 votes, while the rest went to various other write-ins. The proposal for a five-man commission carried 148 to 72, meaning it would be on a future ballot. City clerk Fred Warner said the turnout for the election was better than expected. In other Onaway News, Army Pvt. Robert H. Barry, 19, son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Barry, Onaway, completed eight weeks of advance infantry training March 25. Ft. Ord, California.
