The former were correct, »t least in Bailey's eyes. He anded ill speculation on June 15 by appointing Gladish as judge. He reasoned, no doubt, that since there was not a lesral general election (In that Gladish was not a candidate) that the office was vacant Gladish was appointed to serve out the term until Jan. 1, 1941, and the constitutional provision that he could not succeed himself woulc rule. The contest of the burned ballots began July 30 1948 with a preferential primary. Out of that race. Jack Bobinson would oppose WiHI Berryman for sheriff In the Aug. primary. After the primary, election counters found that Berryman won by 232 votes. Robinson called for a recount and an inspection o{ 12 of 32 boxes showed little, if any, change Robinson then filed suit in circuit court charging fraud among numerous election officials.

Weather Experts To Assist In Gauging Fail-Out WASHINGTON Wl-Seven weather experts have been named to assist federal civil defense officials in determining the course of radiological fall-outs resulting from H- bomb explosions. The seven, the Weather Bureau said yesterday, will be assigned late this month to civil defense regional offices in Newton Center, Mass.; Olney, Md.; Thomasville, Ga.; Battle Creek, Mich.; Denton, Tex,; Denver; and Santa Rosa, Calif.

Buffer in Honolulu HONOLULU W)—Paul Butler, national chairman ol the Democratic party, arrived last night (or a week of conferences and a ipeRch at a $10Q-i-plat« dionu tomorrow. rymen's lawyers asking the court to prevent the circuit court from proceeding on the matter. Basis of the petition was that there was no cause of action, that the complaint did not state sufficient facts alleging the fraud. The court heard oral argument on Oct. 8 and a week later denied the writ and also denied a motion to dismiss the complaint against. Berryman. The general election was held Nov. 5, with the case still pending in circuit court. Berryman was declared sheriff and was sworn into office Jan. i. , Circuit Court Judge Charles W. Light conferred with attorneys for both sides the following Feb. ID. Date for trial was set for March 10- At the trial an order was sent, to the county clerk to produce the ori- •ginal ballots in question and records and to the county treasurer to produce the ballot duplicates, or stubs. But the ballots were not forthcoming. It seemed, upon investigation, that the original ballots had been placed in the hands of the Osceola sheriff's office. Deputies, under orders of the circuit court judge, had burned ballots but a misunderstanding had occurred. The intent of the burning order was that only the balolts used in the preferential primary July 30 were to be destroyed. Deputies, however, burned ballots both of the preferential primary and the regular primary —the very ballots on which the case would be tried. Robinson's attorneys immediately requested dismissal of his charge. Said one: "Without these records, we find It impossible to make further showing of proof of irregularities unless the court will approve use of copies from those records which were never authenticated." The court would not allow the case to continue without the originals, so the charges were dismissed. Judge Light made it clear that there would be charges "of wrongful action" on the part of the deputies. And so, Mississippi County now has the case of Mayor E. R. Jackson vs. Mayor-Elect Toler Buchanan, charging errors on the part of election officials, multiple voting, voting without legal registration—the works. The wheels again ore beginning to turn. It could be a long wait. I Obituary W.W.Edwards Dies in Manila Soviet Bosses In Rangoon For Visit RANGOON, Burma Wl — Soviet Premier Bulganln and Communist party Secretary Nikita S.

Also developed at the opening day's meeting was a stand-pat emphasis on the "peace and prosperity" theme, ba.sed on the Eisen hower administration's record. Hall, at a news conference yesterday, repeated an earlier statement that he feels Eisenhower will run again "if he feels he Is able." He said he and the President had talked about the 1956 campaign issue and party finances. "You had to come away with this thought—that you had talkec to a man who was informed about the campaign, concerned about it. and had a real continuing interest in it." Hall said. Asked how long the party could wait for the "final answer," Hall said St could come along any time —March or so.' The date of the formal decision, he added, "is nol important, in my opinion." It could easily turn out to be January or February, he said.
