first placo. to the Republican party in
th-e election yesterday. The state's
support of that party had come to be
an axiom in political circles until the
election two yaas -ago- of Woodbridge
N. Ferris as Senator on the Demo-
cratic ticket upset all precedent. At
1:30 o'clock this morning, it was as-
sWcd that, the party had returned to
its position as returns from yester-
tay's election continued to pour into
tabulation headquarters' here.

Early Returns Indicate Sharp Rebuff:
For All Amendments


Detroit, Nov. 5.-Returns from the
rural sections of the state, received
early this morning here, indicatedf
that the School Amendment to the
state constitution had been defeated
for the second time by a two to one
vote. In 1920, the same movement to
abolish private and parochial schools
was defeated by more than a two to
one majority.
Other amendments to the state con-
stitution appeared to have sufered4
the same fate from returns available
