Republicans show gain
in district; many of

With less than half of a normal!
turnout, Benton county’s primaries}
'Dueseday picked Etta J. Hmman,‘
unopposed candidae for ommlty clerk,‘
dior m number of m, 1750 b9ll-1
jlots being checked for her name.
Harley Chapman, unopposed candi
date for county auditor, ran a close;
second with 1723 vows marked for
his candidacy. ‘
‘ The only‘real race on the entire
primary thicket was ufor the office
10! congressman, which, according to
late returns from nearly all pre-W
omens in the district, gives Hal
[Holmes of ' EllenSburg the nomina
tion on the republican ticket. 0011-,
grman Knu-te Hill defeated
Frank CBellby 72517 to 5,059. «l ‘
Holmes polled 8,208 votes, oam
eron Sherwood, Walla. Walla candle

against Frank Bell’s 422. Nominee
Holmes failed to top Cameron Sher
wood, who received 427 Video to
(Holmes’ 320, while Moi-latte got
248. Oddly, perhaps, Bell carried the
east end of the county, his total for
the county east of Benton City, and
including Richland and Vale pre
cincts was 86 as against Sherwood’s
132, «while Holmes got 41 and am 57.
}However, there Was some voting for
