dently was foreshadowed by results
of the primaries Tuesday which also
left several thousand Townsend plan

Major Lloyd C. Stark, a Roosevelt
supporter backed by Thomas Pender-
gast, of Kansas City, won the Mis-
souri Democratic gubernatorial nom-
ination while a campaign directed
almost exclusively against Pender-
gast brought the Republican nomina-
tion to Jesse W. Barrett.
Capper Leads
Senator Arthur Capper (Rep.,
Kas.) had a substantial lead for re-
nomination. Omar Ketchum, defeat-
ed by Alf M. Landon for the Kansas
governorship in 1934, headed three
others for the Democratic senatorial
Except for Thomas A. Ralston,

In Virginia, Representative Colgate

Norman Hamilton, a Roosevelt sup-

Senators Carter Glass and Harry F.
Byrd: Glass is unopposed for reelec-

tague was renominated for his thir-

Watch Closely
Party leaders watched closely com-
parative vote totals in the primaries.
With less than 800 of the state's
4,277 precincts to be heard from, 576,-
856 votes were reported cast in the
Missouri Democratic gubernatorial
primary. With 1,356 precincts yet to
report, the three contestants for the
Republican nomination had polled
Out of 2,690 precincts in Kansas,
the votes in 1,682 totaled 159,915 for
the three Republican senatorial can-
didates. The four Democratic sen-
atorial aspirants were given 92,465
votes in 1,680 precincts.
Other political developments yes-
terday in'brief:
President Roosevelt and Governor
Landon both received optimistic re-
ports concerning their chances for
election. Senator Dietrich (Dem.,
Ill.) told the Chief Executive at Hyde
Park, N. Y., that Illinois was "safe"
for the New Deal.
G.O.P. Chances Good
Senator Dickinson (Rep., Ia.), re-
porting to the Republican presiden-
tial nominee at Topeka on efforts of
the party to elect senators in mid-
western states, said to reporters "we
have a good chance of electing two
senators, a governor and a whole
state ticket in Iowa.
Senator Townsend, chairman of
the Republican senatorial campaign
committee, returned to Washington
from a mid-western trip saying he
had found "increasing sentiment" for
John Hamilton, the Republican
chairman, speaking at Cheyenne,
charged the administration with
"perverting relief and CCC activities
for political purposes."
Preparing to leave Westfield, Mass.,
for the meeting of anti-Roosevelt
Democrats in Detroit tomorrow, (Fri-
day), former governor Joseph B. Ely,
of Massachusetts, said those present
would discuss their campaign plans.

Detroit Loses
To Indians In
Extra Innings
Auker Wobbles In Tenth
To Allow 3 Runs And
Tigers' Rally Is Cut Short
DETROIT, Aug. 5.- 0) -The
Cleveland Indians defeated the cham-
pion Detroit Tigers 6 to 4 today in a
10-inning game that was a pitchers'
battle between Johnny Allen and El-
den Auker for the first nine innings.
The teams went into the tenth
deadlocked at three runs. With one
away for Cleveland Hale walked and
Earl Averill doubled, putting Hale on
third. Trosky, the Indian cleanup
man was walked purposely, and
Weatherly forced Hale at the plate.
Billy Sullivan then doubled, clearing
the sacks.
Allen Removed
In the Tiger half of the tenth Al-
len was removed when Walker
singled. Thornton Lee struck out
Burns but Gehringer singled and
Walker scored on Goslin's infield out.
Hildebrand then relieved Lee and
Simmons singled but Owen popped to
end the game.
The victory was Allen's seventh in
succession. Although Auker took his
eleventh beating of the season,
against eight victories, he managed
to finish the game, for the first time
since June 30. Since that date, he
had been knocked from the box six
times and failed twice as a relief
The submarine ball hurler who led
the American League in winning per-
centage last season with 18 victories
and seven defeats pitched his best
game insmore than a month, allowing
nine hits to 12 collected by the Tig-
ers off Allen, Lee and Hildebrand.
Allen, who beat Detroit all four times
he faced the Tigers with New York
last season, was credited with his first
victory over them this year. Detroit
has beaten him twice.
Al Simmons Hot
Al Simmons led the Tiger attack
with a triple and three singles in five
trips to the plate.
The Indians got to Auker for a run
in the first inning when Hale and
Averill singled and Hale scored on
Trosky's fly. The Tigers got two runs
in their half. Walker singled, stole
second and scored on Gehringer's
single. Gehringer went to third on
Weatherly's wild throw and scored
on Goslin's fly.
Cleveland tied the count in the
fourth when Trosky singled, stole
second ,took third on Sullivan's single
and counted on Burns' wild throw to
Auker, covering first. The Indians
went ahead in the sixth when Averill
walked, advanced to third on Weath-
erly's single and scored on Sullivan's
The Tigers deadlocked the game in
the seventh on Simmons' triple and
Owen' s single.
Neither team could score in the
eighth or ninth, and then came the
Cleveland rally in the tenth, which
the Tigers fell two runs short of
matching in their half.

Power Delivered
Plants Almost
The aniual power delivery from
each of the large steam plants owned
by The Detroit Edison Company in
and around Detroit is practically
equal to that of the Muscle Shoals,
according to C. 0. Wisler, Professor
of Hydraulic Engineering. These
steam plants, located at Trenton
Channel near Trenton, at Conners
Creek and Delray in Detroit, and at
Marysville near Port Huron,*together
with the hydro-electric plants along
the Huron River, have had an in-
crease in power delivery from less
than 275,000 k.w.h. in 1887, to 2,-
534,000,000 k.w.h. in 1935.
The influence of The Detroit Edison
Company on the development of the
Huron River valley is discussed by
Professor Wisler in his article for the
forthcoming Huron River Valley
Guide. "In the 50 years of its ex-
istence the capital investment of this,
company has grown from $250,000 to
$263,000,000, and its services have
been extended from a few downtown
Detroit patrons to cover 37 cities, 87
villages, and a large rural district, a
total area of nearly 8,000 square miles
with a population of about two and!
a half millions."
The Detroit Edison Company, or-
ganized in 1886, and known at that
time as the Edison Illuminating Com-'
pany, extended their activities into
this area in 1905, when they pur-
chased the Washtenaw Light and
Power Company, and since then they
have acquired the Argo Plant in Ann
Arbor, and have built the Barton, Su-
perior Paper Mill, and French Land-
ing hydro-electric plants, all on the
Huron River, Professor Wisler said.
In order to secure flowage rights
along the river ,the company has had

to purchase whole farms to get the
few acres really needed, because of
the uinwillingness of many of the
farmers. At present, it possesses the
flowage rights along some 30 miles of
the river from French Landing to
Portage Lake, and several thousands
of acres of land.
"Their utilization of these farms
has been a valuable object lesson to
the county," continued Professor Wis-
ler. "In the area above the Barton
dam, they have developed a forest of
evergreens and an attractive resi-
dential suburb.
"Above the old dam at Delhi, they
have a large peach orchard from
which thousands of bushels of peach-,
es were sold in 1935. All these ven-
tures besides being an object lesson
in intelligent land use, have added
materially to the attractiveness of the
valley," he said.

Get the Right Size

Do you have small lamps where you need large ones for adequate

lighting, or large lamps where smaller sizes should be used?


Detroit Edison Company will gladly help you to get the right lamp
in the right socket by 'advising you on correct lamp sizes and by
exchanging large lamps for small and vice versa.
When you bring your BURNED OUT lamps to the Edison office
for exchange, tell us where the lamps are to be used and we will help
you to get the right sizes. There is no charge for lamp renewal service.
The only requirement is that you bring with you your most recent
electric bill for identification. This practice protects our customers
against renewals of lamps by people who are not customers of The
Detroit Edison Company, and provides our bookkeeping depart-
ment with the necessary records on lamps passed out.
For comfort and convenience, and to insure adequate light for safe
seeing, keep your sockets filled with lamps of the right size. When
you have burned out lamp bulbs, exchange them for new ones at
your Edison office.
Note: Lamps are renewed without extra charge only for
residential and commercial customers paying lighting rates
and in the following sizes: 25W, 40W, 60W, 100W,
150W, 200 W, 300 W, 500W, and three-lite lamp, 100,
