Two years ago, in the 1942 primaries, ballots cast totaled 896 for the Republicans, 576 for Democrats and 1410 on the non-partisan ticket. One of the reasons for the light vote was the fact that there were no local contests whatsover and the only one in the state was for the democratic nomination for U. S. Representative. Here Crook county followed the state trend, giving the place on the fall ticket to Charles E. Norris, (D). Write-ins on the Republican ticket will give John Gutdinger a place on the fall ballot opposing Cash Minnich for the office of commissioner. To appear on the ballot Guidinger must first qual- ify by filing with the county clerk, which he is expected to do. Guldinger received 21 votes, sev-. 'eral received one or two votes, while the only other near conten-J der was Lewis Dennis who net- ted 12 write-in votes. Votes recorded in the county were as follows.
