Earl Warren started off election day (oday with a brief squabble with a press cameraman who photographed the GOP vice presidential candidate in his votinc booth. h Warren burst angrily from behind the curtain and collared the photographer after he fired a flash b"lb for an overhead picture as Warren pulled the voting machine lever. He backed the camerman into a corner and asked him to destroy the negative. The chastened pho tographcr, who identified himself as an employe of Life Magazine, apologized and promised his film would be burned. Confident of a "vast" Republican Victory, Gov. and Mrs. Warren were up before dawn to cast their ballots in the same precinct where they have voted since Warren first began his political career as district attorney here. j After the row with the camera man. Warren chatted- with his neighbors for several minutes and, grinning broadly, departed. He said he planned to spend the day day calling on friends, and this evening will cross the bay to San Francisco to await the election re suits in a hotel suite. Hope Stai "Just Ignore Him.
