The possibility of Congressman Nathan D. Perlman contesting the election of Dr. William I. Sirovich, Democratic nominee elected from the 14th Congressional District by a majority of nearly 1,200 votes, was intimated by Congressman Perlman.

Mr. Perlman said, “Although the Smith landslide was certainly in a large measure responsible for my defeat, I am investigating reports of intimidation of Republican voters and of illegal manipulation of voting machines, and if I become convinced that there has been a fraud or if it is necessary to do so in order to gain access to evidence, I shall contest Dr. Sirovich’s election.”
