.TWO EVENING*'TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD- TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 8; 1955 Dial PA-2-4600 for • WANT AD TUtcr-g Philadelphia Vote Turnout May Be Heavy PHILADELPHIA UP) - Philadelphia Voters chose a new mayor today, 'highlighting the off-year local elections in Pennsylvania. Local issues have dominated the campaigning in the absence of any statewide contest. . In Philadelphia, more than 980,000 voters were eligible to ballot. Most observers though* there might be a 70 per cent turnout despite the rainy, cold weather predicted by the Weather Bureau. The voters had to pick between Democrat Richardson Dilworth, a 57-year-old seasoned campaigner making his second try for the may-' ' orally, and W. Thacher Longstreth, 35-year-old former advertising executive making his first race for public office. The winner succeeds Democrat Mayor Joseph S. Clark Jr., firsl of his party to hold the office in 67 years. A win for Dilworth \<-ho was elected district attorney on the same ticket with Clark would give Clark a strong position in seeking the party's U. S. Senate nomination against Republican incumbent James H. Duff next year. Clark did not seek reelection. • Dilworth has pledged to continue the Democratic-claimed accomplishments of the Clark administration, if he's elected. Longstreth, self-styled "liberal" Republican with the backing of national Republican officials, has pledged "progress without waste." The two have debated 18- times, used television extensively <5 and filled out their campaigning with street corner rallies for DLlworth and sidewalk stumping for Longstreth. Wife Wounded, Mate Kills Self BALTIMORE WT — A 37-year-old Timpnium woman, .who said she was shot in the back' yesterday by her husband; remained in fail- condition today at. Union Memorial Hospital. .' Mrs. Edwin W; Isaacs told police that after being shot she leaped from a first floor bedroom window and crawled to a. neigh-; bor's house. ' The victim's 38-year-old husband . was found shot dead in the house, a rifle beside him. Officers 'said they were told Isaacs had been released from a hospital last Thursday after being treated for a nervous condition. Mexican Lady Rider Asserts Women Just As Good As Men NEW YORK tf) — Eva Vahlez'j risri- fvps flashed today when it ] Knmvland Sees out of place competing against! men in the international jumping| competition at the National Horse ,£#r)f,|jj-e Show. . I ' ' Women are just as good, riders as men," she snapped. "The last To M. u time I was here five years ago, I won two events. And those American women who used to compete —they were pretty good, too." She was pressed into service on a few days notice when two of the Mexican riders were injured in an automobile accident. She pooh-poohed tlie^ notion that she was out of-condition and unfamiliar with the mounts. , Miss Valdez has won one test, while her famous brother-in-law, Gen. Humberto Mariles, has taken three as has Billy Steinkraus of the American team. All told, the two countries have won five apiece and tonight's finale will be all the more important for that reason. . The international championship, both team and individual, is mythical — something like the national college football title. If Gen. Mariles wins, he'll-be-the individual champion and Mexico will be the team victor. If Steinkraus takes it, he'll 'be king and the Americans will be the. team titl- ists.
