for he triumphal return to Washington of Walter Johnson not as a pitch er but as manager of the txjam for which he toiled for 20 year President Clark Griffith on being informed that the Newark N club would not place obstacles in the path of the veteran pitchers promo tion said that if Newark would let him go Washington would sign him If Johnson is given the manage mant of the Senators he will replace Stanley Harris who was recently re lieved of command The ultimate destination of Harris has not been determined although it has been pre dicted freely he would head another major league club

consistent winner There is much sentiment in Wash ington for him however and a de termined effort has been made by some of his friends to have him re turn to the only major league club for which he has ever worked There has been no indication here that Johnson has accepted the manage ment of the Washington team al though he has had at least one con ference with Griffith More Women Than Men

total of registrations for the two days to which is nearly two thirds the electoral vote of the city Two More Days Left If registration during the next two days is on a par with the first two then
