Giad i so was tin Law Tully Cie Ted i Hanx Tat in nominee for missis Sippi county judge at the party primary last August and reversed Ute lower court ruling that Doyle Henderson of Blytheville was the Legal nominee. The courts Retreat from original opinion was acknowledged in ruling today on a motion for a rehearing which had been filed by attorneys for Henderson. In effect the High court ruled that previous decision holding that poll tax receipt made out in indelible Pencil instead of pen Aud Ink were invalid and that re a intents of such receipts were not qualified voters was erroneous. The court had in original ruling i declared that some 75 voters who had such receipts were not Quail lied to vote and that their votes therefore could not have been counted for Henderson.
