McDonald lost only one of his six precincts to Cruikshank, Union township, and won by 151 votes. Mr. McDonald was particularly pleased to receive a majority in his own "straight-ticket" republican ward which he has losl in previous elections. Mr. McDonald is a democrat. Cosgrove beat Schram by 14( votes after a hot scrap in the third district. An example of the inten sity of the fight is shown by the decline of his majority from 79 of two years ago. Heavy republi can voting in some of his pre cincts and a local temporary factional dispute were believed responsible for the shift. Morris, as is customary in the fourth district, had the battle of all 'the districts, with Bollig polling an even 1000 votes to 1038 for Morris. Morris won by only six votes the last time he ran four years ago. Morris is a republican, and has '.'straight-ticket;', democratic' Bancroft and Lotts Creek to contend with in each election, a handicap of from 350 to 500 votes for any normal republican.

The total vote, according to these figures, would be 30,752 on! senator and 27,211 for governor, a difference of 3741 votes in the total. Though there are many instances where voters indicate choices for senator and not for governor, it is not believed the difference would be so great. This morning's Des Moines Reg- I ister gives Gillette the vote by 1800, | and radio reports give the final at tO 2400. It's anyone's guess as to the final outcome of the canvass Monday. The state total on governor shows 819,000 votes, with 437,000 for Wilson and 381,000 for Kraschel. The senate vote shows a total of 818,000 votes. Republicans believe this latter total in- HUMBOLDTERS, BULLDOGS TO MEEHRIDAY .Armistice Day Game is Scheduled for Afternoon. All democratic county officers, Incumbents, were reelected in Tuesday's election, but the margin of victory was cut down considerably from that rendered the same officers two years ago. Auditor E. S. Kinsey was elected to a second term; Treasurer Duffy and Recorder Dooley were elected to fourth terms; Clerk Katharine McEvoy was elected for her second term in her own name, though she also served a full additional term upon appointment following death of her "husband, incumbent. Representative Kohlhaas W*6 reelected over J. C. Skow, of Wesley, after a hot battle by a margin of 495 votes. Dr. R. A. Evans had a narrow escape from, defeat at the hands of L. M. Mer- , ritt, but ended up with a .217- I vote majority. County Attorney Winkel was reelected for a second term over H. B. White. A Vote Below 1930. An analysis of the vote shows that it was only 74. per cent as heavy as in the 1936 presidential election, which may account for cutting down some of the democratic majorities. Kinsey, with a majority of 19'48 over Hovey, was high man, and Evans was low.
