George, whose retirement was asked by President Roosevelt, held an increasing lead for rcnomination a.s additional unofficial returns came in Thursday from Georgia's Democratic primary on Wednesday. Former Governor Eugene Talmadge, New Deal critic, ran second, and New Dealer Lawrence S. Camp, endorsed by the president for the senate, ran last. Camp conceded his defeat. GCOI-RC is leading in 78 counties having 222 unit votes, 20fl such votes being necessary to establish the winner. The |x>pular vote in 1,597 of the, suite's 1,735 precincts gave: ' George 12H,40;i Camp 66,405 Talmadge 80.174 A close Race ATLANTA, Ga.—(/I 1 )—The veteran Senator Walter F. George whose defeat President Roosevelt asked on the ground that lie was a dyed-in-the- wool conservative," forged into the popular vote lead in the Georgia Democratic senatorial primary Wednesday night on the basis of a 10 p. m. tabulation from scattered precincts in 145 of the state's 159 counties. The returns showed 63,61'! popular votes for George and gave him a lead in f>5 counties which could yield him 154 of the 2(lfi county unit votes necessary for nomination. The vote count was incomplete and unofficial. Former Gov. Eugene TaLmadge, candidate for George's scat of a free land for the needy platform, who led the veteran senator in early tabulations, had 54,158 popular votes from 84 counties which could give him 210 unit votes. Lawrence S. Camp, federal district attorney whom President Roosevelt endorsed against both George and Talmadge, was third in the race with 33,422 popular votes. He led in eight counties which could give him 28 unit voles. In the race for governor, Hugh Howell, former chairman of the State Democratic Executive Committee under the Talniadgc regime, led Gov. E. Rviers and the two other candidates for Rivers' post, John J. Bangham and Robert Wood. The gubernatorial returns showed 05,738 poppular votes from 77 counties which could give 1!)2 units votes for Howcll; 69,90(> popular votes from (J8 counties with 190 possible unit voles for Rivers; 8,3% popular votes with two possible unit votes from one county for Bangham, and 816 popular voles for Wood. A few votes were cast in the .senatorial race for W. G. McRae, Atlanta lawyer who withdrew on the eve of the election in favor of Camp. Warm .Springs, where President Roosevelt spends nianay of his vacations, gave Camp ISO voles to 65 for George anil 42 for Talmadge. The first of six precincts to be heard from in La mar county, where President Roosevelt last month spoke out against George and Talmadge and urged election of Camp, gave Talmadge 24 votes, George 2 and Camp 3. During his speech the president said George was a "dyed in the wool conservative" out of step with the New Deal, and asserted that Talmadge's "election would contribute little tu practical government." The goal of each candidate was a plurality in enough counties to insure a clear majority of 206 or more of the state's 410 county unit votes.

Not even tho threat of rain could dampen Patricia McGraw's spirits. While her pencil raced over the whiteness of her pad, covering it with her curlicues of shorthand notes, and the voices of witnesses, judge, and attorneys occupied one side of her mind, the real Pat continued dreaming of the evening's dale with Larry Kent. For many weeks now life had 1 ecu .something vivid, magical, -juickcned with the glamour of Jove. Before Lurry had come with his blond liyir so smooth and clean-lined over his hroad brow, the d:iys had been a succession of routine tasks familiar to any court stenographer. Even now the ordinary run of events continued, but ovc-iv.hadow- ins them was the knowledge )h;it Larry loved her, that soon they would be married. When Pat realized the nearness of that, marriage the scene around her took on a strangeness. For over a year it had been her woi;k- a-day world; now she saw it as a stranger: loving it, yet. eager to be away to that still dearer world of her own home. The case continued.
