TEN EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD., FRIDAY, DECEMBER, 31, 194S r'honc 4600 for a WANT AD Taker One Word Led To Another §Fhe Night Of The Year By ARTHUR "BUGS" BAEB Hie night of the year was the Dewey alter the second Truman in November. I bushed .myself arooid a smug rwlio and waited for the beans- -worthy pollsters to scatterway the gimmickry. And to my -well-nourished astonishments it comes up rmim- Ues. In all. my, afferglommed- career I never strflled to such throbbles as I absorbed on Election night. It sure was elastic twilight. In all previous runner-upper • had plebiscites conceded the the •works about the time the bulbs on the" cigarette signs were starting to blink.. Only in the Wilson- Hughes mix-up had it ever gone past the twitching hour or insomnia. — 3ut at midnight little old Truman was hanging on like interest to a aiortgage, . At one he had a suburban' transfusion from the content- td cowsters. At three the ward repeaters were throwing them double or nothing. About four the polls- ten and cross-checkers were sprad- tuing an alibi lor' the emergency exit. And looting as silly as a para- chuts on a well-digger. At dawn Truman hadn't conceded" any more than a bull at milking time. And along about noon of the realm who do you think chucked it? No other than the pollster's pet.

After both the Houses went Democratic I was pulling- tor a Republican • prexy to balance the legisla? tion.
