PLAN E IN CAMBRIDGE FACES HURDLE TONIGHT

City Manager, P. R. Voting, Supported By Landis, Might Be Blocked by City Council

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The new scheme of city government for Cambridge, called Plan E, and backed by 11,300 citizens headed by James M. Landis, Dean of the Law School, faces its first major hurdle tonight when it goes before the City Council.

The plan involves a City Manager type of administration and proportional representation. Tomorrow is the last day on which the petition for its inclusion on the November ballot may be legally filed in order to comply with the 30 day rule.

There is fear among some of its proponents that the Cambridge councilmen may spike the plan by not having a quorum at tonight's meeting, which would mean that the petition could not be sent to the Baliot Commission in time. The petition was not eligible for consideration before tonight's meeting since it had to be filed for 45 days previously.

If Plan E is not on the ballots this November it cannot come before the voters again until 1940.
