Washington, April 4 Col. Robert
E. Lee, r'., grandson of the Confederate
chieftain will be asked to make the race
for the Democratic nomination for
Lieutenant-Governor of Virginia against
J. Taylor Eilysott, the present holder
of that office, as a result of the dis

Doubt e tists whether Cclonel Lee
can be drawn into politics again. Years

Montague "anti-machine" leaders of
the State. Since his retirempni- from
the Legislature Colonel Lee has not
taken an active part in Virginia politics.
Eighteen months ago he stumped (h?
State for Congressman Jones and Glass
for the Senate against Senators Mart n
and Swanson.
Virginia is again torn assunder over
the AUen case, and the suggestion of
the iLee candidacy for Lieutenant
Governor is an outgrowth of the controversy-over
