GAY LEADS HALL BY 10,000 AND
OVERTON MAY BE IN SECOND RACE
Returns Wednesday morning of the Democratic
primary to select a nominee to succeed the late Robt.
Broussard as United States Senator shows that Edward
Gay is leading over L. E. Hall by over 10,000 majority and
that the race between Hall and Overton is so close that
it will be necessary to have complete figures to decide
which of the two will be in the second primary with Mr.
Gay. The greatest surpiise of the election was the great
majority which New Orleans gave Mr. Gay, being 13,200.
Rural districts weree led to believe that Gov. Holl would
get a big vote despite the regular organization there.
Unofficial returns from half the state including the of
ficial vote of New Orleans, give Gay 32,000; Hall, 21,000;
and Overton, 14,000. The Overton vote is expected to
be greatly increased with the complete returns and his
headquarters issued the statement that when the complete
returns were received it would show that the second
primary was between Overton and Gay. Hall headquart
ers are confident that he will be in the second primary
and on the face of the erturns it is evident that Mr. Hall
will enter the second primary with Mr. Gay.
