We flushed it back just as far in the 1936 primary as we did in the first of 193*. We got Just as many votes, and each time, though, we were crippled in the scrimmage and couldn't carry through with the ball. In 1934 the money wagon ran over us when we couldn't buy stamps, yet convinced tile many that we were millionaires. In 1936 we were farced down by the united front of the state machine, the centennial aid and an unfortunate j political trade. "The machine is widely split this . year. The ball can now be carried j through ttie line. Tile people can score. The horses of the old money I wagon are collared in the opposite direction.
