Figures in the close com- missioner race Wednesday evening showed Foulkes with 1,379 votes compared to 1,345 for Hays. Earlier tallies had shown Foulkes with a 1,384 total, but County Auditor Susie Razey reported the contest became even closer when a five-vote mistake was found in Othello Southwest precinct. Teh auditor explained that a total of 256 absentee ballots have been sent out with over 200 of them back in the office as of Wednesday. She noted that 84 of the returned absentees are from the Othello area. "Ballots that still arrive with postmarks of Tuesday or before will be eligible to be counted in the election," the auditor explained. She said that the canvas sing board would start count- ing the absentees beginning at 9 a.m. today. The board consists of commissioners Ralph Danekas and W.E. Longmeier, prosecutor Richard Miller and Mrs. Razey.
