MILWAUKEE, Sept. 5.—<Ab-A tra dition »f 33 years was broken in the primary election Tuesday when Gov. Fred R. Zimmerman was denied nomination by the republicans in his quest for a second term. Suffering a crushing defeat that placed him a poor third. Zimmerman was pot out of the running, and the choice of the republicans lay between Waite.* J. Kohler, conservative repub lican, and Representative Joseph D. Beck, progressive. Possibility that Kohler, prominent manufacturer seeking political office for the first time, might be the first conservative nominated in ten years lomed on the basis of returns which continued to give him a margin over Beck, who had the support of the state’s two United States senators. John J. Blaine and Robert M. Lafol lette. The outcome was still in doubt with a race so dose that only the complete returns may settle it. Both Kohler and Beck were polling twice as many vote* as the governor who defeated the progressive and conservative can didates two years ago. Nomination of Senator Robert M. Lafollette who has been in the senate since hie father’s death three years ago was conceded. He easily defeated Mayor George W. Mead of Wiscon sin Rapids, conservative republican. The democratic candidates who will seek election in the fall for governor and United States senator were nom inated without opposition. For United States senator, the dem ocrats named former Representative Michael K. Reilly, of Fond Du Lac. Mayor A. G. Schmederman, of Mad ison, former minister to Norway, was named for the gubernatorial race. Returns showed that the complete progressive ticket with the possible exception of Representative Beck, was nominated in the republican primary. These included: Lieut. Gov. Henry A. Huber, Attorney General John W'. Reynolds, Secretary of State Theo dore Datnmann, and State Treasurer Solomon Levitan. They were the running mates of 8enator Lafollette and Beck on the progressive ticket, and opposed those placed in the field by a conservative republican conference which indorsed Kohler. The conservative candidates for other state offices ran far behind Kohler and there was no doubt of the outcome of the contest for the minor state offices from the start. — BODY UNRECOVERED HOUSTON.

O. P. Candidate Hits Dem Plan to Lower Present Duties BOSTON. Mass.. Sept. 5.——The country was called upon today by Senator Curtis, republican vice pres idential nominee, to decide between the republican and democratic par ties at this election on an issue of higher or lower tariff duties. Democrats, he declared. were “certain” to seek downward revision of the tariff. He reiterated his pledge to lead a repuhican legisla tive move for a higher tariff wall. The vice presidential nominee spoke at a rally at Norumbrga Park here and his prepared address was devoted entirely to another discus sion of the tariff situation. “In my opinion,” he said, “the tariff should be raised and not low ered. The ‘lightest suspicion that the demoq|-ats will lower the tariff should be suf&cient reason not ’o give them the chance, while the cer tainty that they will take that action should be enough to settle all doubts as to which wav you should vote.” FLIGHT!

I MR URGED TO TRY SOUTH Followers Aver Time Ripe to Stump in Dem Stronghold By JAMES L. WEST (Associated Press Staff Writer) WASHINGTON. Sept. 5.—W— Now that Herbert Hoover has defi nitely decided to carry the political warfare to the home ground of his opponent, Alfred E. Smith, he is seriously considering a march upon the very rampart of democracy, the solid South. The pressure for him to make a trio into that section is almost as great as was that for him to visit Newark and New York City, where he will speak on September 11 and October 17. respectively. He prob ably will yield to it by going either to North Carolina or Tennessee for one speech near the dividing line between the two states. Some recent callers at the Hoover headquarters have told the repub lican presidential nominee there is more than a possibility that he can break the solid South for the first lime since reconstruction daya and have urged that he make a special campaign tour into that territory. Hoover has been inclined to dia count some of the reports that have come to him regarding the situation in Virginia. North Carolina and Georgia and he probably will wait for a greater crystalixation of sen timent before he reaches his final decision. He has limited himself to a few speaking trips and naturally his desire is that these should take him where his personal appearance might be expected to do his cause the most good.
