Thomas, Mrs. Bassett and Cook Take Lead For Other State Offices I fere Tom D. McKeown, congressman from th** Fourth district, and Orel Busby, candidate for the state supreme court, carried their home county by decisive majorities In the election of Tuesday as shown by the unofficial figures. Both faced intensive campaigns on til** part of their opponents but th** voters of Pontotoc county rallied in most of the precincts to t hose two who a*-* seeking high offices, one re-election to the national congress, til** other elevation from the district bench to a place on the state’s highest tribunal. McKeown won an advantage of 1,194 over Grover Phillips, Bart Aldridge and Judge Cheatham, all of whom made drives for votes into the veteran congressman's home territory. Aldridge with 1,853 led Phillips with I,-376 and Cheatham hardly tallied with 223. Busby's race, which bos been one of statewide interest, found the district Judge capturing most of the precincts of Pontotoc county and in those where he is best known far over-topped th** showing of his opponents.

Clark made inroads Into Pontotoc county to get 3,170 votes but Busby’s 5,400 sent him Into a solid lead in his home county. Pontotoc county voters showed by their ballots something of the division of interest over the state in the race for United .States senator. Elmer Thomas, now senator, took the lead, but "as pressed by R. M. McCool. Comer Smith was in third place and Albert ! Hunt a poor fourth In the eoun-1 tv. Thomas won 2,523 ballots and McCool 2,191.

The American round-the-world flying team, Bennett Griffin and James Mattern, set their red, white and blue monoplane down in Berlin at 5:40 p. rn. (10:40    «. rn., C. S.

When Post and Gutty struck Bertin    after    stopping    af Harbor Grace, Chester, England, and Hanover, they had eat en up 34 hours and 34 minutes.

Mattern ami Griffin could have made lf to Berlin in even less time if they had not hail to fight a terrific windstorm in th** Hanover area. They apparently maneuvered around the worst of tie* blow, and thus took longer than expected to complete the hop. As a result only a small crowd was on hand to greet them, hut TVmpelhof airdrome officials did their utmost to mark lh** new heights of trans-Atlantic aviation.
