It is two full weeks since the state
general election of April 7 and they
still don't know who the new mem-
bers of the Board of Regents are!
Totals reported to Secretary of
State Harry F. Kelly and unofficial
canvasses of Alpena, Lenawee and
Wayne counties give Senator Earl
C. Burhans, of Paw Paw, afid Alfred
B. Connable, of Ann Arbor, Repub-
licans, majorities of 3,400 and 2,508
votes respectively, but one can't be
too certain.
An April 9 dispatch from the Asso-
ciated Press had reported that "in-*
cumbent Franklin M. Cook's election
became certain last night with ap-
Proximately 200 precincts stillmto be
counted." Cook then had a major-
ity of 6,000 votes over Connable, but
the, latest developments place Cook
third behind Connable, with incum-
bent Charles F. Hemans still trailing
a poor fourth.
The source of delay seems to lie
with sleepy election officials who
left their jobs before they had tabu-
lated all the votes. About 250 pre-
cincts were missing 48 hours after
