Governor Concedes Nomination of Reed For Senator By Republicans
PHILADELPHIA, May 16. — After Senator David A. Reed had rolled up a majority of more than 100,000 in two-thirds of the state, Governor Gifford Pinchot today conceded defeat in his effort to win the republican nomination for senator.
Blaming his defeat lalgely on his health which prevented him from making a personal tour of the state, the governor, who twice before had been defeated in liis effort to enter the senate, left what political observers looked upon as an intimation that he may try again at the general election in the fall.

We had tramped over the cactus and desert until 4 o’clock, when Houston and I decided to take different directions and zigzag through the cactus and mesquite. We were far apart wnen I heard Houston veil “Carlos! Carlos!” for a time I could not find him, the underbrush was so thick, and then I saw his white shirt. I ran.
