Rep. Rankin (D-Miss.), leade of the house battle against a fed eral baEot, described the senaU action as "unusual and ridiculous' and declared the house would never accept "a bob-tailed federal ballot."

Overseas service men and women could use the federal ballot i£ a state ballot was not delivered in time to be voted The senate- bill. would require the military services to make equal effort in delivering state and federal ballots overseas. .State'-AM , Chiefs Give Year's Goals Iowa Falls--Three officials of the state AAA attended the Hardin county sphppl of instruction for township committeemen in Iowa Falls-,Monday.
