Most Drastic Turnover Yet Witnessed in Political History Schaaf-Jackson Contest for County Treasurer Won by Former by Narrow Margin Thursday morning all indications point to* a sweeping victory for the Democratic party in both National and State returns of Tuesday's election. According to late reports Franklin D. Roosevelt, Democratic candidate'' for President, had swept all 'but six states with large majorities. With him the electors of the nation sent sufficient senators ancl congressmen to provide a large majority in both houses to support the administration. In the state Wm. A. Comstock, pemocratics candidate for Governor, and all state officers have apparently swept the state in the landslide of the nation. Congressman Roy O. Woodruff, republican, seems to have been a favorite son as according to late reports, he escaped the onslaught and has a leading plurality of about 6000. Ben Carpenter, not having any opposition, will continue to represent the 2Sth District as State Senator. Miles M. Callaghan also escape.! the avalanche having won a'majority over his opponent in both counties of the Clare-Osceola District as State Representative.
