THE DAILY NEWS—LUDINGTON. MICHIGAN. WEDNESDAY, NOV 8, 1939. IS Coifnci! President Edward J. Jeffries Is Victor over Mayor Richard Reading (By TME ASSOCIATED PRESS) Michigan voters in scattered municipalities cast their 'ballots Tuesday in off-year elections, •with a choice for mayor capturing the spotlight in most sections. In Detroit, Council President Edward J. Jeffries defeated Mayor Richard Reading toy a margin of more than two to one. Complete unofficial returns gave Jeffries 226,185, and Reading 108,973. ' Three new names appeared among the winners for posts on the city council. Best known of these was Charles E. (Gus) Dorais, athletic director at the University of Detroit, who polled enough votes to place second among the nine councilmen elected. Other newcomers were John Hamilton, member of the state Legislature, and James H. Garlick. Re-elected to the remaining six council posts were John W. Smith, Harry I. Dingeman, Eugene I. Van Antwerp, Robert O. Ewald, Henry S. Sweeny and John Lodge. Conducted on a non-partisan basis, the mayoralty campaign had been fought chiefly on the issues of "radicalism" and la- ibor. Mayor Reading charged that Jeffries was the candidate ' Of the CIO and the Communist party. Jeffries denied 'being the tool of any faction or factions, and-promised to work for labor peace in Detroit. HIGHLIGHTS ' Key station of each network la listed in the programs.

Court GRAND RAPIDS, Nov. 8.— (/P) —A suit by the Filer Fibre company, of Manistee, for a judgement of $200,000 against Charles G. Bigge, former treasurer of the firm, was on file in Kent circuit court today. The declaration set forth that a judgement of $190,337 was obtained against Bigge at Manistee last April but that the sum has not been paid. The company contends that Bigge allegedly turned over some of the company's funds to his children and invested other funds in a Muskegon piston ring factory. Bigge will appeal at Manistee sometime this month for a new trial on a charge of embezzlement from the Manistee firm. He was convicted nearly two years ago, but obtained an order for a new trial on an appeal to the supreme court. Judge George Sample, of Ann Ar-bor, sitting at Manistee, declared a mistrial when the case was reopened at Manistee last September.
