Townsend 22,042; Ferris 17,130.
Governor Alex J. Groesbeck held a
comfortable lead over the democrat-
ic candidate for the office, A. M. Cum-
mins, on the early tabulations.
A close vote was recorded on the
proposed income tax amendment on
returns from rural districts, the
cqunt from the first 83 districts re-
cording 2757 for and 2843 against.

Is student ownership of automobiles
detrimental to the grade of univer-
sity scholarship?-and does it tend tc
create a social distinction among the
students of the university? These and
other equally important questions
have been bothering several immi-
nent pedagogues throughout the coun-
try lately. In fact it has stirred the
University of Texas to such an extent
that the Board of Regents has taken
definite action to abolish the offending
fitvvers from the campus. No one

Spangler, Pa, Nov. 7.-Recovery of
five more bodies in the Reiley mine
late today brought the total of known
dead from the mine explosion to 80
and accounted for all of the 112 men
officially listed at the time of the dis-
aster. Thirty men have been rescued
alive, three of whom died later.
sThe task of removing the dead was
started at 2 o'clock this morning and
was still in progress at a late hour.
The bodies were carried directly to
Miners hall that has been converted
into a temporary morgue. Troops have
been in action keeping the crowds
from the mouth of the mine.
Rescue workers have been in the
mine since noon yesterday. They en-
countered bodies of men less than 100
feet from fresh air but pressed on
beyond. Several hundred' feet farther
on they found a brattice with a
scrawled message stating that there
were 29 miners farther on. The re-
maining bodies were found huddled to-
gether in a group near the interior of
the mine.
The explosion that was responsible
for the deaths of the miners is the
fifth that has occured in the Reiley
mine. Officials in charge have not yet
issued a statement as to the cause of
the explosion, but they state that the
mine was examined and found free
from gas but a short time before.

New York, Nov. 7.-Early returns
from the National elections failed to
indicate the political composition of
the next congress. The solid South as
usual returned Democratic delega-
tions from Georgia, Louisiana, and
Mississippi on early counts, with in-
dications that other Democratic
strongholds were in no danger.
The outstanding result'of the early
returns was the defeat of Governor
Miller, in New York, by Alfred E.
Smith, the democratic governor of
two years. ago. Smith carried Syra-
cuse, the home city of Governor Mil-
er by 6704 votes. The defeat of the
incumbent was early conceded by Re-
publican headquarters.
The first overt urn in the Senate
came when the New York state Re-
publican committee conceded the de-
feat of Senator Calder and the elec-
tion of Dr. Royal S. Copeland, New
York City health commissioner. Sen-
ator Calder is a member of three im-
portant Senate committees.
Two turnovers were reported in the
House when early returns were com-
pleted. Crodell Hull, of Tennesee,
won over the Republican incumbent
of the fourth district, and James G.
Danly defeated B. L. Fairchild, of the
24th New York district. All women
candidates for the House included in
the early returns were defeated.
In the Senatorial race, early re-
turns resulted as follows: Senator
James A. Reed, democrat, led . R.
Brewster, by 9,846 votes in 687 out
of 3,873 precincts. Senator R. M. La-
Follette was elected by an estimated
200,000 majority over Mrs. Jessie
Hooper, in Wisconsin. In Maryland,
W. C. Bruce, demnocratse a A
led J. 1. Francee, Republican n
bent by 4,631 votes. Texas gave ti
Rayfield, democrat, a lead of 58,729
votes over the republican candidate
George Peddy. Returns from 579 out
of 3,395 precincts in Indiana gave
Senator Ralston, democrat, .99,643 and
Beveridge, republican, 96,433. M. M.
Meely, democrat, led Senator Howard
Sutherland, in West Virginia with
more than one fifth of the votes tabu-
lated. Four democratic candidates for
the House also led their republican
opponents. Smith W. Brookhart, Re-,
publican, led the democratic nominee,
Clyde Herring, by 2 to 1, in Iowa. In
Connecticut Senator McLain, republi-
caa was in the lead. Senator Lodge
was ahead in the Massachusetts race
on early returns but later was his
opponeti, Gaston, who jclaimed an
18,000 lead with one-third the dist-
ricts reported.

ganized some time ago for the young-
er memberd of the faculty who are in-
terested in scientific research.- Stu-
dents in the university are not eligi-
ble for membership unless they have
an A. B. degree. Graduates may be-
come members upon certain condi-
tions. This club is an outgrowth of
the Research club which is a scien
tific organization composed of the old-
er men of the faculty. These two re-
search clubs are devoted to the study
of all sciences except the political and
social sciences.

further reduction of 50 cents. Stu-

into two payments, one at this time,
