Johnson Managers Not Satisfied
With Results of Primary
(By United Press
NEW YORK, April 29. Following a
conference of Johnson leaders today it
was announced a recount of votes in the
New Jersey primary will le demanded
by the managers of Senator Johnson's
campaign. The recount was decided
upon following the report by many poli
ticians and residents of New Jersey that
Johnson had been counted out. With
eighty precincts to be heard from Gen
eral Wood was leading Johnson for the
state's presidential preference vote by
602. Angus McSween, Johnson's east
ern campaign manager, declared that a
recount would be demanded in Camden,
Morris, Essex and Gloucester counties.

Nevada Receives Roast
From Eastern Weekly
"America," a weekly paper published
in New York City, waxes exceeding
wroth over the Mary Piekford case. In
an editorial boil over entitled "Cellu
loid Love," the editor runs the gamut
of villification and ridicule. Here is his
article:
"When the state of Nevada under
takes to investigate a divorce and sub
sequent attempt at remarriage, it is
plain that there is something rotten in
the state of Nevada. For of all the
pest-holes that are making this country
a scandal in the eyes of civilized na
tions, Nevada is the most open and the
most disgusting. South Carolina grants
no divorces, whatever be the cause al
leged. New York has, in theory, a rig
orous procedure. But Nevada severs
collusion, fraud, and bigamy; they may
find the alleged culprit more pure than
the driven snow. But the decent, self
respecting man who occasionally takes
his family to the neighborhood moving
picture theater need not remain alto
gether silent in face of this public scan
dal. He may even deem himself called
upon to make his disapprobation felt in
a very practical manner. Had this pair
engaged in systematic shop-lifting, their
value to the film producer would be pre
cisely nothing. Had they plotted to set
fire to an orphan asylum, their names
would be in execration. But they have
done neither of these things. They have
only sought the guarantee of a law
which tends to destroy the sancity of
the marriage bond, and that respect for

residence, more or less fictitious, of a j
few weeks, a more, rather than a less,
fictitious reason, and a decidedly un
fictitious fee. Nevada is free to do all
this if she wishes. Nothing can change
her, except a higher sense, almost ap
proaching the elemental, of morality.
But no decent person is forced to take
advantage of this public incitement to
immorality. No decent person will.

possible. "The favor or disapprobation which
they will now receive will register the
moral health of the American people
who in former days gladly contributed
to the enlargement of their bank ac
counts. Perhaps history will repeat it
self. There was a popular film star
who, a few years ago, threw off the
mother of his children to engage with
another love. He no longer flickers on
a thousand reels, but amuses a small
section of a stock company in a western
town. Even from a financial stand
point which such creatures can envision,
successive polygamy did not pay."

NEW YORK, April 29. With the
smoke of Tuesday's primaries still hov
ering over the battlegrounds, obscuring
the result in New Jersey, eastern Re
publican divisions were moving on to
new sectors where the preconvention
campaign will be renewed next week.
The Republicans .will hold a primary
in Maryland, a state convention in Mis
souri on Wednesday, and a state con
vention in Colorado Thursday. The
Democrats hold a primary in Califor
nia, a state convention in Kentucky
Tuesday and state conventions in Con
necticut and Rhode Island Thursday.
The principal contests will be staged
n the Republican primaries of Califor
nia and Indiana.- The candidacy of
Hoover will be put to its most severe
test in California. Both he and John

. Spirit of C. H. S.
At last after a spring nap Carson
High has awakened athletically with a
startled expression. Everyone and
everything in the school seems to have
suddenly come to life and all are full
of pep.. Why, yesterdty, it would have
done a person good just to look upon
the lot back of the Harrington home.
That lot was literally covered with live
ly boys and girls, each doing some ath
letic stunt; some playing tennis, others
vaulting,' still others throwing disks,
running rtces, javelin throwing, any and
everything which helps to develop the
muscles and make them strong. Talk
about the proper spirit! When it
comes to that, Carson High is right
there.
He is working this week on his school
work and expects to continue his studies
in Truckee. He will then still be con
sidered a member of the Senior class
and will be back to Carson for Com
mencement Week.
Senior Play
The Seniors are now being kept very
busy studying their parts for the play,
since they have chosen the one desired.
Every member of the cast has received
his or her part and each is industrious
ly studying it. Due to the absence of
the coach, Mr. Richards, there will be
little rehearsing this week. But next
week and the weeks before school is out
there will be a great deal of rehearsing,
and it is hoped that with the proper
spirit and earnest study the play will
be a great success.
New Jersey for Wood ,
Bv United Press
NEW YORK. April 29. Wood's east
ern headquarters claimed twenty-six of
New Jersey's delegates on basis of in
complete returns. According to this es
timate Wood would receive twenty-two
of the twenty-four district delegates,
two of the delegates at large pledged to
him and two other delegates at large,
who announced they would support the
winner of preferential vote. Johnson's
headquarters announced that with 100
precincts missing General Wood was
leading by 200 votes in New Jersey.
Off for Truckee -"
C H. S., and -especially the Senior
class, received a sad blow a few days
ago when it was announced that Dwight
Edwards would be forced to leave High
as be had been transferred to Truckee
by the Standard Oil company. His po
sition in that town will be an advance
over the one he is holding with that
company in this city.
