"* "Dick" Loses County , U. 8. Senator L. J. Dickinson of Algona lost his seast in the senate , to .Clyde Herring of Des Moines, present governor of the state. The comparative vote for Dickinson this year, as compared with his race of 6 years ago against Dan Stock, Indicated that he polled more votes than six years ago, but the opposition rolled along In an avalanche which made his own increase count for little In Kossuth county. The 1930 vote follows in Kossuth: Dickinson : '. 2,622 " 8t«k ;. 2,540 The 1936 vote In Kossuth follows: Dickinson (R) 4354 Herring (D) 7,127 A Roosevelt Landslide That President Roosevelt himself was the most popular candidate on the ballot, Including his own party, was evidenced In Kossuth county by the vote.

At that Urn* he polled 684 votes, while Reck received 517. Results were slow in coming In, and not until shortly after noon on last Wednesday had the final tabulations from the lust precinct been received. Party Lines Blotto Partly lines meant little, except for dled-lu-the-wool followers of either side. The tremendous vote for Roosevelt indicated that he personally had received an unusual vote of confidence, but no other candidate on the ticket came within 800 or 900 votes of equaling his record. The results speak for themselves a* regards the present administration of the U. 8. government. File Two Divorce .
