Download PDF for this date

Running far ahead of his ticket, B. Charney Vladeck, Socialist candidate for Congress in the Eighth Congressional District in Brooklyn, received 18,802 votes with seventy-seven election districts still missing, the largest number of votes ever cast for a Socialist in that district.

Vladeck is manager of the Jewish Daily Forward and a veteran campaigner on the Socialist ticket.

Charles Solomon, Socialist candidate for governor, received 79,234 votes in New York City. Upstate Socialist votes, which have not been tabulated as yet, are expected to add materially to the total number of votes for the Socialist candidate.
