MICHENER AHEAD OF MOORE
IN CONGRESSIONAL BATTLE
Washtenaw county fell in line with
the rest of =the country Tuesday and
returned overwhelming majorities for
the national, state and county Repub-
At 2:30 o'clock this morning 21 pre-
cincts out of the 35 in the county had
reported 9,624 for Harding and 3,091
for Cox, the Republican presidential
candidate being given more than three
votes to the Democratic leader's one.
In not a single precinct reported had
Cox pushed ahead of Harding.
In the Michigan gubernatorial race,
Alexander J. Groesbeck, Republican,
led Woodbridge N. Ferris, Democrat,
in the county by almost two to one,
according to figures available from 24
precincts. The total vote for Groes-
beck in these precincts was 9,358, that
for Ferris was 5,040.
Returns on the school amendment
were not made in a majority of the
precincts before 2 o'clock this morn-

to the effect that the proposition was
voted down in the county by approx-
imately two to one.
Earl C. Michener, Republican can-
didate for congressman from the sec-
ond district carried the county by a
large majority, receiving in some pre-
cincts three votes to one for William
WASHTENAW COUNTY VOTES
WITH STATE ON AMENDMENT
Decisively defeated, if early returns
can be taken as representative of the
sentiment prevailing over the entire
state, the proposed amendment to the
Michigan constitution requriing child-
ren to attend only public schools, has
been branded by the citizens of the
state as undesirable.
At 3:30 o'clock this morning 563
precincts in the state, including 21
from Washtenaw county had been
heard from, regarding the amend-
ment. The vote was nearly 2 to 1
against the proposed change inn the
constitution, with the actual count
running 110,924 against, and only 58,-
011 in favor.
This condition according to incom-,
plete returns from precincts in the
state which could supply no definite
figures, prevails there also. Telephone
and telegraphic reports from these
precincts declared that the amend-
ment would be defeated by a ratio
equal to if not greater than that es-
tablished by the 500 precincts that
Washtenaw county measured up to
the average set by the state, voting
against the amendment fully 2 to 1.

El ection F orices
One To ide Jiule
A certain Southerner best known
by his pronounced "Yais Suh" accent
will ride a mule up and down .State
street soon. He will .be accompanied,
by various placards and in -all prob-
ability a large crowd.
The "why" of all this is that a gen-
tleman by the name of James M. Cos
was recently defeated in his hopes for'
he presidency of the United States and
the aforesaid Southerner has agreed
to mourn his defeat by performing said
ride. Truly we sometimes allow our
feelings to carry us beyond the point
of reason, comnion sense and the
maintenance of our dignity.
Then, there is a certain Northerner
who will not ride a mule, neither will
he don his white flannels, dig out the
old panama and the sport coat and
wear them at the Chicago game next
week. Thus will the feminine popu-
lace fail to have the splendid oppor-
tunity to view the summeradornment
of the male of the species that they
might have had if the aforesaid Mr.
Cox had been elected to the presi-
H. Moore, Democratic candidate.
The Republican legislative
didates, Charles A. Sink for state
ator, and Joseph E. Warner for
resentative, were across the line with
correspondingly large majorities. The
entire Republican county ticket plac-
ed as easily as the national leaders.
Returns were given out in the Court
house, but as early figures indicated
the landslide that was to follow, the
people- gathered there to hear the
results soon dispersed.

Several women, while anxiously
awaiting election returns at the county
Court house last night, were discuss-
ing how independent of their hus-
bands' opinions theye were in voting.
One woman was heard to say, "My
husband voted for Mr. Harding and for
the past few months has been trying
to persuade me to, but the more he
argued the more staunch a Democrat
I became, and I voted for Governor
When asked if they were as well
qualified for the franchise as their
husbands, they were of the unanimous
opinion that their qualifications were
better since they had so much more
time for studying political affairs.
These six women showed more en-
tliusiasm whenever returns were an-
nounced than did more than 200 men
who were in the court room.
