This fact has provoked fears and despondency in both camps. High Democratic officials and top Republican chieftains alike express private doubts over the outcome and blame it all on the fact "that the voters won't tell us how they're going to vote." Service Vote In Counting There Is a bare possibility that the men and women in the armed services may decide the election, if the results In key Btates are very close. Somewhere between 2,500.-000 and 3,000.000 ballots cast by the armed services. HARRISBURG, Pa. Pennsylvan if ' ia was the political "hot spot" In the nation today as voters trekked to polls to cast what may be the decld-j lug votes In presidential balloting. j While Democratic leaders claimed the Btate for President Roosevelt for a third time, Republican chieftains were confident Gov. Thomas E. Dewey would turn the lido and capture the commonweath's 35 electoral! votes. i go close was the balloting expected to be by some leaders that It may be necessary to wait until November 22 for the tabulation of more than 230,000 Pennsylvania servicemen's votes to docldc the winner. Approximately 660,000 military ballots were mailed. Voters in Philadelphia and heavily Democratic Pittsburgh and surrounding counties may turn In such commanding pluralities for Mr. Roosevelt that the usual Republican min orities in so-called rural counties may not he sufficient to carry the state, for Dewey. Republican strategy was aimed at "holding down" anticipated Democratic majorities in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia and piling up a smash-: ing plurality for Dewey In other sections of the state. GOP claims that the hard coal fields would turn up in Dewey's column were refuted by Democratic leaders. While approximately 81 percent of the electorate went to the polls four years ago, reports from the 67 counties Indicated today's turnout would probably not exceed 75 per cent. Latest unofficial estimates placed Republican registrations at approximately 2.670,000 while the Democrats were expected to have about 1,870.000 qualified electors. Four years ago, the President's third term campaign won him Allegheny County including Pittsburgh by 104,641 votes while he captured Republican-dominated Philadelphia by 177,509. The metropolitan majorities were enough to offset huge Republican gains In rural areas for the late Wendell Willkle and the chief executive carried Pennsylvania for the New Deal by 281,187 votes. Four years earlier, his majority over Alfred M. Landon was RUSSIAN-BORN Pfc. Herman Schlmmel of Bessie, Okla., cooks up a steak for his mates near Monschau, Germany. Though he's been through Sicily, Italy, Africa, France, Belgium and Germany with U. S. units, he's still had time to maintain his reputation as a freelance cook. This is a U. S. Signal Corps photo. (International) in the Netherlands noared its end. SI rot. h Out HII-Milc Front The Allied 21st Army group, composed nf British, Canadian, American and Polish troops, aligned themselves along an 80-nille front following the lower bank of tho Maas from u point southwest of the Iteichswald Forest In Germany westward to the beaches of Holland. Fighting on the Island of Walche-ren in the Scheldt estuary entered I lie mopping-up stai;e and headquarters expected that the last pocket of Nazi resistance there would be stifled soon. Walt'heren Capital Falls On Walcheren Island the British and Canadiuns captured Middleburg, the capital, and Veere. sole remaining resistance was northeast of Dom-burg. ; Eastward on the mainland the British Second Army nearod the outskirts of Willemstad, last escape route of the Nazis across the Maas from the suothwest Netherlands. Headquarters reported that substantial gains were scored by the Pixth Army group in the last few days in the Baccarat area of France. The Germans southeast of Aachen rushed up heavy concentrations of artillery in an effort to stem the onslaughts of the American First Army in the Hurtgen Forest area. ra Bair-Cul Lost Life Samson was strong enough to slay a lion with his hands, b.'t he lost his Vde because of hair-cut.

TONITE ALL THE WAY! into which they had been forced by a brilliantly executed multi-pronged thrust of the 24th, the 96th and the Seventh Infantry Divisions, supported by heavy artillery fire and scores of war planes. "Our advance continues unchecked." General Douglas MacArthur revealed In his morning communique.

At the same time. Yankee warhirds from the fifth and 13th air forces were playing an active part in the final push to liberate the Island.

MneArihur rtlsclosed that these tnH,a iinvn Hharnlv reduced enemy air raids on American positions on Leyte. The Sith'ft drive southward has not been easy, however, and the 'Yanks were doggedly fighting ror every root of ground gained. The terrain is suited for strong defense, according to MacArthur, and the Japs were fighting furiously to hold the town as an escape route to either Cebu or Negros Islands. voters of New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Maryland will determine the election. All five states are classed as doubt ful and claimed by both sides. They have 114 votes in the electoral college, where 266 are needed for victory. Both Roosevelt and Dewey are certain of at least 152 electoral votes In other sections, so the winner In the east should be the winner in the nation. Nonilness In Final Appeals Both nominees made final appeals to the electorate late last night, Both pleaded with, every registered voter to exercise his franchise. Mr. Roosevelt urged the nation to remember its goals "to win the war and units our fighting men with their families at the earliest moment, to see that all have honorable jobs and to create a world peace organization which will prevent this disaster from ever coming upon us again." Dewey almost paraphrased this program but declared his own election was necessary to achieve it. He said the great Issue was a "speedy and victorious end of the war" and urged election of a new national administration to "end the civilian chaos and confusion in Washington" that has "delayed winning the war." Dewey spoke from Albany before coming to New York City to vote. Roosevelt spoke from his Hyde Park home, where he votes. Presidential Contest Cjreatest The presidential contest overshadowed everything else, although the people will elect thirty-ope governors, thirty-six senators in thirty-four states and a whole new house of representatives. Indications point to election of a Republican house unless there Is a Roosevelt landslide while the senate .undoubtedly will remain Democratic, due to the Democratic plurality of holdover senators. Cities versus Rural Areas The race between Roosevelt and Dewey has materialized Into a contest between the large cities of the nation in the President's corner and the smaller cities, towns, villages and rural areas in Dewey's camp. This Is true in state after state New York. Pennsylvania. Massachusetts. Maryland, Ohio, Illinois, Michigan and California are examples.

Among the first was the tally for Mt. Washington, Mass., which Wendell Wlllkie enrried In 1940 by 33 to 10. Today's vote was: Dewey 29. Roosevelt 8. The Republican nominee also leaped Into the lead in first returns from Topeka. Kas.,- where the first, nine precincts totaled gave Dewey 210 votes to 143 for Mr. Roosevelt. The early vote was biggest in the eastern and mid-western metropolitan a rem where war-wt rUers voted early In an effort to get on with the job of providing the materials for the winnina of the war. Some obser vers Immediately predicted a vote surpassing that of 1940 when 49,- 815.312 persons cast their ballots. Rural America, however, was not far behind. First reports from east-tern farming areas also showed ear ly voting far in excess of that of four years ago. Early returns from the nation's greatest metropolitan centers New York and Chicago bore out earlier predictions of the largest presidential vote ever cast by the American people. The weather was fair and cool in most sections, although rain was predicted for some m id western states. In Chicago, an estimated 25 per cent of Cook County voters cast their ballots In the first hours, while in New York some 10 per rent of the 3,226.634 registered vo ters had turned out by 7 a. m., EWT. In Philadelphia, the nation's third largest city, it was the same story. When the polls opened many of the city's 1.017.000 registered voters cast their ballots before reporting for work. Voting was at a brisk pace throughout the morning In most cities. In Pittsburgh the. balloting ran far ahead of the same hours in 1910, while In New York nearly 30 per cent of the voto was In by mid-morning. In Massachusetts, the early morning turnout brought from leau.-rs of both Republican and Democratic parties predictions that the state would count some 200,000 more ballots than the 2.062.2S1 cast In the 1910 election. Rhode Island also predicted a like result. As the balloting started, the outcome was shrouded in doubt beneath the silence of millions of voters who refused to reveal their choices to friends or neighbors.
