been considerably under DO. Going out
the champion took 48 strokes and coming
in she played magnificent golf to the ltth
hole. Here st)e took a 7, but on the next
hole she found lots of trouble and blew In
an 8. Finishing up wfth a 6, she took U

markable score. Her card was:

their ground despite hey 'losses and
withstanding terrific assaults.
"The Germans seem convinced that the
effort to encircle the Russians has failed
and are hastening their efforts south

a defeat administered to Prince LeopclJ'i

All Indications Favor Their
Nominations for Mayor
in Primary Fight
BIG VOTE COMING LATE
Judging by ,he vote cast during the
morning and the early hours of the after
noon, there Is every Indication that the
mayoralty nominees will be:
nepubllcnn Thomas II. Smith.
Washington George D. Porter.
Democratic B. Gordon B rentier.
Keystone James E. Gorman,
Director Porter Is polling a much heavier
vote than his opponent for the Washing-!
ton party nomination. Colonel Sheldon
Potter, in all parts of the city. Both Por
ter and Potter are receiving an unexpect
edly heavy vote on the Republican ticket
DECI8IVB VOTE LATE.
The Republican Organization leaders are
anxiously waiting to see the size of the
ote cast between 1 and 1 o'clock this
evening. Upon that vote, they figure, will
depend Smith's chances for election in
November. They expect a large part of
jthe Independent vote to be cast between
those hours, and should Porter receive
one-third of the total vote cast for the
Republican ticket, they will fear for
Smith's chances at the general election.
Chief Interest in the primary election
today centres around the nomination of
party candidates for Mayor, regardless
of the many ward contests that are di
verting attention In all parts of the city.
The vast amount of contracts for publlo
Improvements that are to be awarded
during the (enure of the next administra
tion makes the selection of the next
Mayor of Philadelphia of paramount im
portance to the citizens, and every party
is bending every effort today to bring out
an enormous vote for Its candidates.
Colonel Sheldon Potter, who is opposing
Director of Publlo Safety George p. Por
ter for the Independent' nomination, and
Thomas II. rlmlth, thw Organization
"harmony" candidate, closed their prim
ary campaigns last night with last hour
appeals to the1 voters.
