HOOVER CARRIES BOTH HARVARD AND PRINCETON IN BALLOTING FOR PRESIDENT

ONLY FEW BALLOTS CAST FOR JOHNSON AND LOWDEN

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Falling but ten votes short of a majority of the entire number cast, Herbert Hoover won a sweeping victory in the CRIMSON straw-ballot, held yesterday throughout the University. The former food administrator had a plurality of nearly five hundred votes over Major-General Leonard Wood, his nearest competitor, and had more than one thousand votes advantage over McAdoo, the leading candidate on the Democratic ticket. Mr. Hoover's greatest strength was found to be in the Law School of the University where he was given twice as many votes as Wood.

The election was more than successful in that it brought out fully fifty per cent, of the members of the University, and of this number it was approximated that seventy-five per cent, are actual voters. The Republican voters outnumbered the Democratic supporters nearly six to one while the Independents or non-partisans, most of whom cast their ballots for Hoover, and the Socialists, were hardly in the running.

In addition to the men mentioned in the summarized totals the other candidates received votes as follows: On the Republican ticket,--Harding, 8; Pershing, 2; Knox, 2; Dean Pound, 1; President Lowell, 1; Cummins, 1; Sproul, 1; Butler, 1. On the Democratic ticket,--Clark, 8; Cox, 8; Gerard 1; Tumulty, 2; J. W. Davis, 2; Baker, 1; Hitchcock, 1; Daniels, 1; Watson, T. E., 1.
