In the preferential nrimary. voting was unusually heavy. With one precinct--a small one- yet to report, a table published the day fol- Ibwinfr the primary showed that more than 7,200 votes were, cast in the county on July 29. In the city of Fayetteville nroper more than 2,500 votes were cast. This wag considerably, in both instances, over the number cast two years previously--and that was considered a heavy vote. There will be several contested offices OB the ballot which will be up for decision August 12. First will be the office of governor, with Sidney McMath and Francis Cherry contending. Other contests to be decided will be: For attorney general. T. J. Gentry and Clib Barton; for chief justice. Supreme . Court, Neil Heed and Griffin Smith; for national committeeman, Paul Chambers : and Noble Gil!; for county judge, Rov A Seott and WHlfam L. Bush; 'for tax collector, Ralph Taylor and Lloyd McConnell; forcircuit clerk, W. S. Bronson and .Tack , Byro: for county treasurer Clint Shook ·ud John Kirsch. ~~* , A number of offices, not contested, will 1 bj included on th* ballot, and the counting i of thi results likely will not be no rapid , as two weeks ago.
