To political observers, the real sur
prise of the Illinois Republican pri
mary was the large number' of 'writ-ten-in"
ballots for Johnson. The only
names printed on the ballots were
those of Lowden and Wood, but re
turns showed that Johnson, who had
made no campaign in Illinois, had
polled about 40,000 votes. The name
oC Herbert Hoover lso was written-in
on some Republican ballots.
None of the Democratic candidates
were entered in the Illinois primary
and that state's fifty-eight delegates
joined the already largo numbeY of un

The next primaries are those of Ne

held April 20. Both Republicans and
Democrats vote in the former state, in
which sixteen delegates each are in
volved. Supporters of Gen. John J.
Pershing claim he will win the Re

now campaigning there. The Demo

Wheat Growers of Kansas
Called Into Conference
As High as $7.50 Per Day Paid

Benefit to Health of
Business Men Here
Manhattan. Kan., April 17. A
wheat harvest labor conference has
been called to meet at Hutchinson
Monday, May . 3, for the purpose of
discussing the advisability of Betting a
standard wage. Other matters relat
ing to the harvest labor problem will
be brought up at the conference. The
meeting was called by Senator A. L.
Lupper thru the medium of the ex
tension division of the Kansas State
Kvery agricultural organization in
each county of the state is invited to
send at least one renresentative. but
the voting will be by county units, the!
voting strength being determined by
the acreage of wheat in each county.
The standard wage set last year was
n ranta on Vn-.nr- 4V rt in.hniitt H a r
with txtra time for overtime. Records !
in the county agent leader's office
here indicate, however, that as high
as 57.50 was the average daily wage
for a few counties in the central west
ern part of the state, while as low as
$3.50 a day was paid in a few eastern
and western counties. The other
counties fluctuated between these two
extremes. In one community the high
mark of $15 a day was reached.
An effort will be made to iron out
these difficulties at the coming con
ference. Kansas City employment bu
reaus quote common labor B to 7
cents higher this year than last, in
dicating that a higher standard har
vest labor wage may have to be
agreed upon by wheat growers.

Since the war' ended, business men
released ,from the high pressure of
wartime activities have had a- moment
now and then to think of recreation
and amusement. Golf, gun clubs,
baseball, (ormnasium work, tennis,
and other forms of outdoor sport are
taking up a. bit of their time and add
ing to their health and happiness.
The Topeka Gun club was started
about five years ago. During the war
it almost died out. Since the signing
of the armistice, the club has showed
considerable life. At present the club
is holding a weekly shoot each Tues
day afternoon on their range located
on the property of the late A. C. Pot
ter, about two blocks from the end of
the California avenue car line, out in
The club now has thirty-seven mem
bers. According- to A. R. Springer,
secretary, a number of Topeka men
have signified their intention of Join
ing the club and a number of others
are becoming interested thru the hold
ing of Beginners shoots. At these
events they have an opportunity to
start out on a par with other inex
perienced shotgun manipulators.
They have a little club house Just
back of where the shooters stand. It
is inexpensive, costing only about
$400, but it is entirely adequate to
the needs of the club. A large shelter
porch runs partly around the building.
Inside the building it is one large
room. A fireplace is constructed on
one side. The room is used partly for
storing supplies and as a shelter.
Shooting in cold weather contestants
go in by the fire to warm up. A large
window on the side toward the traps
permits them to watch the other
Vse Good Guns.
Clay bird breakers stand sixteen
yards back of the traps from which
the discs are hurled into the air. They
have a perfect light back of them In
the afternoon as shooting is done to
ward the east. Experienced men,
Springer says, usually rack down on
their birds at a distance of about forty
yards from the point at which they are
standing. Twelve gauge snot guns are
used. Many of the members are using
specially constructed shot guns, single
barrel, hammerless, with a ventilated
ribbing on top the barrel to assist in
keeping he gun cool, similar to the
ribbing on machine guns. A gun of
this sort may be purchased at any
figure between J100 and $1,000. The
higher cost is not in increased effi
ciency of the piece so' much as in its
ornateness and expensive mounting,
Accurate, serviceable guns may be
There was a day when any old mus
ket was considered all right. More
science is used now in fitting the right
gun to the right man. The length of
the stock is considered. The modern
tendency. Spriager points out, is to
ward guns with very little "drop." that
is, the barrel comes nearer forming a
straight line with the stock.
The clay birds cost about J 8 per
thousand. The cost on the grounds
is about a cent ' and three-quarters
each. Supplies of shells may be ob
tained at the club house.
A state shoot is to be held at Win-
field May 4. A number of Topeka

'DOPE' SOLD IN TOPEKA
Keferoes Implicate Gays in Purchase
The "bottoms" figured in another
scandal in Topeka. Friday afternoon
when Lew Kirkpatrick and Elizabeth
King, negroes, faced Acting Police
Judge J. D. M. Hamilton, confessed
they were dope fiends and told the
judge the drugs were purchased at
Oscar Gay's place, 108 Jefferson
street. The King woman told the
judge that she purchased morphine
and cocaine from- Susie. Carter and
Frank Carter and from Gay himself.
Continuing the woman stated that
Thelma Williams was in Kansas City
at this time getting a supply of drugs
for the drug addicts of the "bottoms."
She named "Dutch" Goggins as an
other dealer in drugs.
i Judge Hamilton immediately noti
fied the police and went with officers
on a raid on the Gay place. Carter
and his wife, Oscar Gay and Cassius
SKaggs were captured. The officers
making the raid Were Police Lieut.

IT IS EASY TO REGISTER
Topekans Don't Seem to Realize
That One Minute Will Turn
That registration is a terrible proc

Topekans, to judge by the rate at
which they are now registering.
As a matter of fact, the process of
becoming a qualified voter takes less
than one minute. One gives his name,
age, place of birth, whether married
or single and la then given a registra
tion certificate entitling him to vote
at the primaries next summer.
The city clerk's office is now open
every day during the noon hour. The
elevator is also running. Unless more
persons register daily from now until
the time the books close July 23, hun
dreds will not get to register.

Boys I want all three of you to attend

a business training. Also, while I am giving you young men this advice, let me recom
mend my favorite college, Strickler's which furnishes all my office help. They employ
the best teachers obtainable and seem to get more out of their pupils than other colleges.
In fact when I call their Mr. Shook to send me an assistant, I knowthat the boy or girl he
sends will be able to handle the job.
Young Men and Women
