Water Row tMILUON TO GO TO STATE POLLS TODAY New York City Selects Mayor Todfiy , Parly Leaders Predict Vic ­ tories For Their Respec ­ tive Can^dates. ALHANY, N. V. Nov. 5. (UP). — More than 4,000,000 voters go to the polls in New York State today to register their cholco of a state assembly, one state senator ra con ­ gressman, frve supreme court jus ­ tices and 52 mayors. democratic state leaders hoped to be able to cut dowm the ma«. jority Republican party ’ s seats in the assembly, but few expected ; that the Republicans ’ working ' margin would be threatened scri- { ouidy.i One of the most determ- { ined bids for a footing in the | strong Republican counties in | western and northern New York, | and the sb-callcd southcni tier i counties, was made this year by < the I^mocrats. I I^eaders Forecast Succeu ! M. William Bray, chairman of| the Democratic state committee, at his home in Utica, and William J. ! Major, Republican state chairman, ' at his home in Seneca Palls, is- j sued Htaiementa forecasting suc ­ cess for their rcsjiectivc parties ’ candidates. . Bray <lid not go so far as to claim a Democratic assembly, stat ­ ing that inequitable apportion ­ ment of representatives, dehying greater New York a rightful share, ^ would tend to preserv'e Republican control. .vw.;,- , As a_ivsult of protests last ye ar when ' inmates of the American I^egion Hospital for disabled World W'ar veterans at Tapper Lake, were barred from voting, the voters will decide whether inmates of Govern ­ ment hospitals are entitled to use the absentee ballot. Another amendment to the Con ­ stitution aiTccting disabled veter ­ ans of all wars, would give them civil service preference, their qualifications being equal, over civilians. This preference now is jimited to Civil War veteiTins. Other Amendments Other 0 consHtdtionhl a m e !i d- ments which will be voted upon ^ would permit a chan^ in the form . of government for Westchester aqd Nassau .
