majority over Cot,
From a strictly partisan standpoint
the straw vote taken by Tho World
Saturday, at rho different theaters
in Tulsa is very gratifying. It shown
Senator Harding lending Governor
Cox In what has been considered
democratic territory by a surprising
majority. There was a total of n,S3,.
ballots cast. Of this number, Debs,
tho soclaJIst candidate, recevied 2
votes at the Royal theater, and 17
ballots wero placed in tho various
boxes without expressing the choice
of tho voters. At ono theater there
was an evident attempt by both
Harding and Cox supporters to stuff
the bllot box. IJIoeks of tickets
were found In this box In such shape,
as to clearly show that tho tickets
did not represent Individual voters.
An they did not change the relative
standing of tho two candidates no
effort will be mado to throw out this
box
Only about 25 per cent of those
who attended thn theaters Saturday
afternoon and night availed them
selves of tho opportunity to express
their choice. This may be taken as
evidence that only about 2! per
cem of the voting population H In
terested In the presidential election.
Just what vJuc this straw vote
has wo do not'pretend to say. Wo
shall not attempt an analysis, pre
ferring to leave that to tho analytic
minds of poll'lclans to ponder ovcru
in taxing mis voto everv errort
was made to make It easy for the
voter. Boxes wero placed at each
"heater, attended bv two JJov Scouts
who passed out tickets. AH the
voter had tn do wns to tear tho
ballot In half and voto that portion
expressing his preference. The
World had tho co-operation of all
the managers of tho local theateis,
nnd In mnut Instances the theater

Danger of embroilment with the

dicted by Winston Spencer Church-

Mr. Churchill, after asserting that
