SHEPARD AND GANT
Signs of a Real Election for
Councilman in Fourth
BIG VOTE EXPECTED
Independent and Democratic
Supporters Out in
The scene at the Fourth ward voting
place today showed signs of a real
election, quite different from the in
difference shown in average Colum-
lia council election. In this ward only
was there a contest, W. J. Shepard of
the University faculty on an independ
ent ticket and J. B. Gant on the Demo
ratic, being the opposing candidates.
Ordinarily, a voter is an event, so
to speak, but today they came by
threes and fours. Student voters, who
usually take no interest in the election
of city officials, were on hand. Men
acquainted with conditions here said a
large vote would io cast; also that
the Fourth ward is normally Republi
can. The largest vote ever cast in this
ward was in the local option contest.
On other occasions the number ranges
from 200 to 250, or about half the
total vote. In the last Democratic
primary, about a fourth of those en
titled to vote did so.
One of the candidates kept a list
of the voters in the ward and checked
them off as they appeared. Those who
had not voted within a reasonable time
were looked up an2 urged to come
