CIO Council
Asks Return to
Standard Voting
Wayne County Board
Tries To Straighten
Out 'Wrst' Tabulation
DETROIT, NOV. 11-(iP)-A return
to the "standard method of voting"
was demanded today by the Michi-
gan CIO Council, whose represent-
atives asserted that both voting ma-
chines and use of separate ballots
had deprived thousands of the state's
voters of their presidential choice in
last Tuesday's election.
The demand came from John W.
Gibson, President of the Council, os
the Wayne County canvassing board
continued its efforts to straighten
out what county officials have de-
scribed as the "worst tabulation mess
in Wayne County's history." At the
same time James Lyons, Wayne
County Republican chairman, said
it was "very probable" that a -re-
count would be asked on presidential
ballots in precincts where "errors
are manifest."
Totals Are Missing
For three days members of the
Wayne county canvassing board have
been attempting to find missing to-
tals for several score voting precincts.
In some of these precincts no presi-
dential vote was reported; in some
only a handful of such votes were
listed and in others tally books have
been reported lost or mislaid.
When the canvassing board com-
pleted its work for today it had re-
checked presidential vote returns
from all but three Wayne County
19 Electoral Votes for FDR
On the face of the Wayne County
returns thus accounted for 3,838 of
Michigan's 3,841 precincts gave Pres-
ident Roosevelt the state's 19 elec-
toral votes by a margin of 19,756.
The figures were Roosevelt 1,102,710;
Dewey 1,082,954.
The canvassing board announced
Sat'urday morning that figures from
one of the precincts had been sup-
plied from memory by one election
board worker but that they could not
be accepted as official until a fur-
ther check had been made. The fig-
ures were from one of the precincts
which previously had reported no
presidential returns. They gave
Roosevelt 335 and Dewey 294.

Coast ard Mascot Goes
AWO L; Deprived of Liberty


Sinbad's eyes were misty and his
tail was tucked between his legs as
the Captain announced that never
again would he be allowed to "make
a Liberty" in a foreign port.
He stood at rigid attention, how-
ever, as beflts a dog whose tour of
duty as mascot of the Coast Guard
Combat Cutter Campbell has be-
come legendary.
Sinbad went "over the hill" in Si-
cily after a good conduct record that
stretched along 310,000 miles of sea
Notice of Sinbad's absence was left
with the Shore Patrol in the Medi-
terranean area, and the SP's picked
him up about a week after his ship
A destroyer brought him back to
an East Coast port and as it slipped
into a berth Sinbad began barking

"piped" Sinbad aboard his ship.
The mascot all but danced up the
gangway, happy to be home and cer-
tain all was forgiven.
But a Quartermaster logged him
AWOL and Sinbad went before the
Captain's mast. The sentence was:

"Under no conditions shall Sinbad
be permitted liberty in any foreign
port in the future."
The sentence might not mean
much to any other ship's mascot but
it isn't every ship's mascot who boasts
a girl friend in almost every port.
Petrillo's 27
Month Ban on
Records Lifted
NEW YORK, Nov. ll.-(/P)-James
C. Petrillo, president of the American
Federation of Musicians (AFL) an-
nounced today the lifting of his 27-
month recording ban against RCA-
Victor, Columbia Recording Corpor-
ation and the National Broadcasting
Company's transcription division..
Petrillo, who had rejected a War
Labor Board order and a request
from President Roosevelt to permit
union musicians to resume recording
for the companies, said all three
companies had agreed to the union's
requirement that they pay the union
a royalty on each disc sold.
James W. Murray, general mana-
ger of RCA-Victor record activities,
announced a few minutes earlier that
RCA-V4ctor had agreed to "meet the
demands" of Petrillo. Decca and sev-
eral smaller recording companies
signed with the union a year ago.
The three-year agreements signed
today, Petrillo said, would permit the
companies to resume recording at

The main work of the commission
is planning the occupation and con-
trol of Germany. Considerable pro-
gress recently has been made on
these problems but none of the work
has embraced French ideas. That is
because the French have refused to
give their counsel unless they could
share in the decisions and responsi-

ing Allied recognition October 23 of
the administration of General Char-
les DeGaulle as the provisional gov-
ernment of France, marked the end
of exclusive "big three" domination
in Europe.

that the qualifications have been met
and that Franee mill go on the coun-
cil immediately if and when the
