TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 15 M 1936 711,000. That was the republican strength in April 1928. The tremendous democratic vote, and the gain since 1934, was given varying explanations. Republican leaders denied it indicated Increased sentiment for the national democratic administration. They claimed thousands of .republicans voted in the democratic primary, attracted by the bitter campaign fight between Governor Homer and Mayor Kelly of Cbica- go, who championed the governors rival with all the power of the Chicago organization. Discount Explanation. Under Illinois law, republicans ·were free to enter the democratic primary if they chose, because · more than two years have elapsed since the previous primary election. Mayor Kelly and County Chairman P. A. "Pat" Nash, scouted the idea that it was a "Horner vote," said Nash, "it represents the desire of the people to show their preference for President Roosevelt" Easiest of the apparent victories was that of United States Senator James Hamilton Lewis, seeking the democratic nomination for a third term. Lewis Wins Easily. His projected plurality, on _ the face of partial returns, was estimated at 1,000,000 votes--the largest ever accorded a candidate in Illinois. He had two opponents, one a business woman, Miss Ruth R. McNamara. On the republican side, former United States Senator Otis P. Glenn apparently was nominated, by more than 2% to 1 over former Congressman William E. Hull. ' C. Wayland Brooks, 39 year old Chicago attorney, was the apparent victor in the seven man race for republican nomination as governor, the result at the three- quarter post showing him 162,000 votes in front of his nearest rival former Gov. Len Small. 4 BANDITS RAID IOWA FARM HOME Mistreat 72 Year.Old Womar Near Le Mars and Take $300 Cash.

Have Saved Homes. The statement added, "no speaker on this program has said one word in praise of the efforts that have been made to raise the price level of agricultural products; yet those who are actually engaged in farming know that the AAA and its successor, the soil conservation act have saved thousands of farm homes from foreclosure. These same farmers know that through this program their entire prospect for the future has been materially improved." Johnson's resolution said: are in favor of a strict embargo on farm products, but we realize that such an embargo is not the solution to the farm problem, and therefore, we demand that congress immediately enact the Frazier- Lemke refinancing bill which will save millions of farm homes from foreclosure.

"You won't get the money to go to college," Baber told the boy, "but they can't take the trip away from you." Promised College Anyway. Lewis said Eddie Cantor, comedian and sponsor of the essay contest, had told him: "We'll see that you get to college anyway. Now don't · worry, we all make mistakes at your age." "I've got to send a telegram to Eddie Cantor," he said immediately. "He asked me to send it when I got here." With Hammond's help he wrote: "Ai'rived on schedule 0. K. Met by Plattsburg friends. Greatly appreciate your kindness." As an afterthought, he told the telegrapher: "Send it collect. Eddie asked me to." Orr Gives Address.
