The Judi' lary Nominators last night issued
the foUowlnf; state«*en|:
We read In t!.e result the overshadowing Im

estimation, over the really more important issue

given more thorough consideration to the ju

terial difference in the result.
The Judiciary Nominators believe that after
i the way their efforts were received by the pub
