Dr. Harold J. Lockett was elected vice president of the Ann Arbor Board of Education last night by a 5-2 vote. The election had been delayed for two weeks when the trustees deadlocked three times (4-4) July 3 between Lockett and Trustee Paul H. Johnson. Johnson, who was absent last night, received the votes of Trustees William C. Godfrey and Theodore Heusel. Locket abstained. Following his election, Lockett was given a unanimous vote of confidence by the trustees. Last night's vote was taken by a show of hands, in contrast to the unusual secret ballots cast July 3. Normally, the president and vice president are elected by a show of hands or a voice vote. Joseph R. Julin was elected president July 3 by a divided board - by a 5-3 vote on the third ballot.
