Eubstanllat error hi the unofficial report of the Leachville vote was also revealed bv the canvass, us well as minor discrepancies in the vote at a number of otli'jr boxes. The meeting, attended by only a small part of < the committee's membership, opened uneventfully and Ihe canvass of the returns proceeded In routine fas'i- ion uiilil the Wilson hex was reached. Then (he discovery th:it the Wilson vole had been certified by the local election officials as 385 for McDonald to 23 for.

Cash'; 5 Receipts About a Half-Billion Above First Half of 1935 WASHINGTON, Aug. 15. (UP) —American farmers received approximately a half-billion: dollars more for 'their products during the first half of this year than In the corresponding ix-rlod of 1935,'the agriculture department's bureau of economics repoited today. Cash receipts from the sale .of farm.products to July 1 this year totaled J3.132.000.000 -in comparison with $2.G70,000.000 during.'the first half of last year. Gains for'the six months period ranged from six per cent In the south central slates to 22 per cent hr'the west north central' slates. Meat animals, dairy products and frulli averaged slightly higher In unit price during the first half of this year than last. Iri general, however, the : reports said, the gain In cash receipts was due lo the larger quantity of products sold rather than 'to higher prices". In addition to money received from Ihe sole of products'..'(he' farmers got |lfiO,000,000 In government payments for crop reduction. That was" 40 per cent'less than was pnid In the first : half of 1935. Life Longest in South, Census Figures Reveal ALANTA, Ga.
