of the Council's community rela-
tions committee, oversee this
project.

ranged for deputies from the cities
of Oak Park and Southfield to reg-
ister voters today from 10 a.m. to 2
p.m. at the Jewish Community
Center Jimmy Prentis Morris
Branch in Oak Park and at South-
field Plaza, Southfield Road, and
12 1/2 Mile Road. City of Southfield
deputies will also be registering
voters at Southfield Plaza from 10
a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday.

to assist the registrars are: Mrs.
