by the New York Sunday World for the
best campaign joke:

According to the chrouicle, a man
was one day driving a number of calves
along a conntry road, when h<5 met an-
other farmer driving a bull. The ani-

speed, with the farmer mounted on a
horse in hot pursuit.
The ealvt s gave surprised bleats,
turned around, stuck their tails straight
out behind them and started after the
bull. In vain the owner of the younger
animals tried to stop them. His yells
were unheeded, and soon the bull and
the calves disappeared up the road in a
cloud of dust The farmer stopped and
mopped his face, mad clear through.
Then he yelled after the vanishing bo-
