Win Positions by
Bmg Margins
An error in the election totals for
representative yesterday nearly put
M. M. Moulton in the class with
Frank Miller of Yakima. LaSt min
ute figures received from Golden
dale showed Moulton in third place
and boosted D. W. Neff of Pasco
from fourth to first place.
First reports from Goidendale,
apparently official, gave Neff 390
votes, putting him in ‘last place in
the race. Today another check was
made and the count was boosted to
1626, giving Neff first with 5272, Coe
second with 5253 and Moulton
Trailing Coe by 27 votes—counted
Late this evening another report
was received, this time correct,
probably, changing the count to
1426—200 less than the first cor
rection. This again changes the
lineup, putting Coe in first place
and Moulton second, with Neff
i nosing out Christensen. These fig
ures give Moulton a lead over Neff
of 154, with still a couple of hun
dred absentee ballots to be count
ed next Monday. As the bulk ‘of
the absentees are from the upper
district, it is thought that the rela
tive positions will not be changed by
the additional counts.
The semi-official count for the
two offices in the four counties is:
Coe (D), Bingen, Franklin, 955.

when the big feature will be the an
nual clash between the high schools
or Kennewick and Pasco. The game
will be played on the Kennewick
field starting at two o’clock.
; Because of its outstanding
gtrength this season, the Pasco
coach announces that tomorrow’s
game will. be started with second
string players to make §he match
smore-hiterosting and‘t'osave the
first string men for their final game
with Ellensburg. Pasco has lost
but one game this year and a win
from Ellensburg will give that city
the undisputed championship of the
velley conference.
Kennewick, on the other hand.
due to loss of almost the entire
first string this year, is the only
team in the league with no victories
and is the only team which has
not experienced the thrill of cross
ing a goal line.
A short patriotic address by Rev.
Fredrick Schilling to the high school
assembly will be the only other pub
lic observance of the day.
