IT WILL TAKE A BIG SCORE TO WIN On Saturday Night, No vember 21st, the Race for This Big List of Prizes Will Be Closed Big results are to bo expected this wook in The Tribune-Times extraordi nary automobile and popularity elec tion for Saturday night the lowest vote schedule of the campaign goes in to effect. With the' close of the third period at 12 o'clock Saturday night of tliis week all “extension schedule’' benefits cease, bortus votes on new sub scriptions disappear and points on the Ford Coupe special prize arc reduced one-half. All the wide-awake candidates are struggling vigorously for supremacy in the election with the realization that the final results depend almost entirely upon what is done these Inst'two days. Binning in this eleetion means more than merely the winning of the tir>t grand capital prize—it means -victory over one of the most formida ble assemblages of candidates Cabar rus county lias ever seen competing for truly extraordinary prizes. , Thousands are watching this cam paign, watching every candidate, wait ing to see who can- command the greatest support, who has the friends and the ability to carry on. No candidates will admit defeat— all are claiming victory. And, as close as the rnce stands, anyone in the list of candidates can walk away with one of the big prizes. Such tremendous enthusiasm and energy was never before seen in any kind of a campaign as is being shown daily in this race for the automobHes j and cash prizes. There seems to be no limit to the pep that every enndi-1 date has stored up for the finish which is but n fc,w days away. The contestants who have formerly been nhe hardest tworkers are still it as if they had saved all their ener gy for the. big finish! This indicate* tiiat every single contestant on the list has plenty of fight left. It also shows that the candidates who look “harmless" now will be among the strongest when the end comes. They are all watching the other fellow and arranging and planning to .go them all one better. Takes Big Score to Win. This much is certain, whoever wins apy one of these prizes will probably do so by a very narrow margin though the winning scores will doubt less be large. If the present leaders are figuring that their leads‘are ample they are due for disappointment when the winners are announced. With such a field of energetic workers, it is certain that some of the most spec tacular work of the contest is yet to come. The “never say die" spirit was never more in evidence at any other time than it is-right now. I>o Best Work Now. It is quite sure that some of the candidates who have nppearod less active in the past few weeks are the ‘very ones who will do the best work in order to get under the wire with every possible subscription before the .lowest vote schedule of the election goes into effect. On Saturday night. November 21, the race for the big list of prizes will be closed. The five automobiles and large cash awards will be distributed just as announced at the beginning of the campaign. There are just eight more days left—and only two days af ter today until the lowest vote offer tof the contest goes into effect.

The state had rested its case against the 38 defendants who are on trial early in the day, -and there folowed vigorous attempts on the part of va rious defense attorneys to obtain me release of their clients on the ground of insufficient evidence. This resulted ill the release of sev en defendants. Hersehel King, Geo. Merrill. James Redmond, Eugene Cole, Sam Griffin, John Jarvis and 11. G. Rayburn.

All denied that they were impli cated in the mob activity, but admit ted that they were at the jail on the night when the crowd crashed the gate and entered. Bishop declared that he had beeft deputized by Com missioner C. P. Bartlett to assist in quelling the disturbance. Higgins de nied that he had entered the jail yard at all. About this time Judge A. M. Stack observed that it was “very apparent that somebody stormed the county jail, and equally apparent that some body must be guilty.” The court then called attention to the fact that one attorney had ap , proaehed him some time before in re gard to allowing two of liis clients to submit to the charge against them. “When a defendant comes into court after that and attempts to fight the charges. after that, he must take the fortunes of war," Judge Stack continued. “In the ease of tho;e who submit, the court will be inclined to be lenient."

I’attl Foley, of the naval board, had sent her a letter which was "an insult" to the memory of iter husband. Defense counsel sought to prove by her testimony that a navy officer en deavored to have iter give false testi mony before the Shenandoah board of inquiry by retracting her formal state ment that Commander Lansdowne was ordered to take the Shenandoah on her fatal flight to the middle west over his protest. The court and counsel stood as the fir-t woman to testify in the' ease, took the witness stand and was sworn. She was nervous and plainly weak and weary from illness and the try :ng experiences of recent weeks. She answered in a tremulous voice the preliminary questions put to qualify ! her as a witness. "Did you receive a communication from Capt. Paul Foley, trial judge advocate of the naval court relative to your testimony before that court?" asked Mr. Keid. “I did." the widow 1 replied. "Have you that communiea-1 Hon?" "I have not." "What did you do with it?" "I tore it up." Col. Sherman Moreland, the prose cutor objected when Mr. Keid asked the witness what was in the com munication she destroyed. The defense attorney said he asked the question because Col. Mitchell had charged that the navy would "white wash (lie Shenandoah catastrophe." and he wanted to prove the charge. Tlie court after some discussion as lo the admissibility of -Sfes,. Lans downe's testimony, directed her ito answer the question. WHITEHEAD KLI'TTZ GOES TO NEW YORK Quits Playground and Recreational Association to Practice Law in the Metropolis. Raleigh. Nov. 11.
