Tavenner, Buchanan and other
Democratic congressmen in Illinois
seem to have lost in the Republican
landslide. Tavenner's district is
overwhelmingly Republican .normal
ly and he went in four years ago and
two years ago when the Progressives
split .his opposition. Munitions in
terests were specially anxious to get
Tavenner because he co-operated"
with Henry Ford in circulation of
millions of copies of speeches at
tacking U. S. Steel, Bethlehem Steel,
Hudson Maxim and others. Illinois,
Manufacturers' ass'n made a Bpecial
target of Tavenner because of his
"anti-stop-watch" bill. Niels Juul
probably defeated Frank Buchanan.
On the other hand, a lot of head
work goes on in a nail factory. 1
