Woman Is Sought
For Attack Upon
60-Year-Old Aunt
Brookline, Mass.. Oct. 22. —(AP)
Miss Agnes Murray, of Burlington,
Vermont, was sought today for an at
tack on her 60-year-old aunt, Miss
Margaret Stone, Mias Stone told po
i lice she had been attacked by her
niece last night n>ith an automobile
jack. She was badly beaten on the
.head.
Officials at a hospital, where 30
otitches were taken In the wounds on
Miss Stone's head said she might be
come blind from the beating she re
ceived.
Miss Stone told police her niece call
ed upon her yesterday and that while
they were riding in Miss Murray's au
tomobile, the younger woman stopped
the car saying she wished to show her
aunt something. The niece got into the
rear seat, Mias Stone said, and sud
denly placed a handkerchief soaked tn
what she believed a drug over her
face. She said sbe struggled and tried
to get out of the car and was struck
on the head with a heavy piece of
iron.
It also is agrued by
and admitted by the majority of Dem
ocrats that the average ciUsen who
casta a Socialist vote would, lacking:
a Socialist candidate to vote for, be
UkeUer to vote the Democratic than
the Republican ticket.
That is to say. the Socialist vote is
recognised as largely a “protest vote”
—a protest /gainst the existing situa
tion. Those desiring to record a pro
test can record it most emphatically
by voting for Thomas. With no
Thomas in the field, they still could
protest, though with less vehemence,
by voting for Govern or Roosevelt.
Assuming a close balance between
Hooverites and anti-Hbovejrttes, mani
festly every vote lost b$ Governor

new geography textbook. The State
Flcmentary Textbook Commisslbn is
to hola a meeting in Greensboro
Monday firrtner to consider the ques

however, depends upon whether the

Those favoring making the change
argue that the present books, pub
