This Headline — Refunding Appeal Abandoned On the front page of the Arkansas (iiuctte, October 12, signals the certain doom (if Hie opposition to Governor Carl K. Hnllcy. It marks the collapse In complete defeat of (he first (ii'Kinif/.cil attempt (D obstruct his program and discredit his administration. 'His enemies said the highway refinancing program, launched to save taxpayers' millons and strengthen the credit of the state, was illegal. They attacked it in the courts. They lost in Pulaski Chancery Court and appealed.'They lost in the Arkansas Supreme Court. They said would appeal to the United States Supreme Court. They knew the highest court wouldn't even grant a hearing, but they tried to .put off admission of defeat until after the election. But the time limit caught them. AT IT AGAIN Now they are telling you that Carl E. Bailey's nomination for the United States Senate by the Democratic State Committee is illegal. They know it is legal. They haven't dared to take that to the courts. The courts have ruled too often that Committee nominations to fill vacancies are legal. So they say "we find" the nomination of Governor Bailey illegal. When they tell you that, they are telling you that the following public officials in Arkansas were illegally elected to office: William F. Kirby, United States Senator. Mrs. Hattie Caraway, United States Senator. Mrs. Pearl Peden Oldfield, Congressman. Mrs. Effie Wingo, Congressman. J. S. Utley, Circuit Judge. Harry P. Wooldridge, Chancellor. Elmer Owens, Chancellor. Duval Purkins, Circuit Judge. Guy Fulk, Circuit Judge. Abner McGehee, Municipal Judge.- And many others. Such nonsensical rubbish is patently a desperate attempt to delude Democratic voters and win a few votes for the Independent candidate whose "record is clean" because it is empty as a freshly sponged slate. A COMPLETE ROUT Even the Arkansas "Literary Digest" Democrat, loudest ballywhooper Cor the Independent candidate, hasn't a leg left to stand on since the collapse of its "fundamental issue," the special primary, under the weight of evidence that the Democrat has twice in the past championed Committee nominations for senatorial vacancies on the ground that special primaries were impractical, too expensive and a mere "political subterfuge," The ex-Democrat pleads guilty and says it "changed its mind." It would change anything, including the Democratic party ,to defeat Governor Bailey. But it can't change the minds and principles of loyal Democrats, who applaud achievements by faithful servants and reward them with higher offices and wider opportunities.

By PAUL HARRISON NEA Service Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD—Actress Judith Allen, cast as the woman scorned in a $2,000.000 alienation of affections suit against Mrs. Delphine Dodge Cromwell Baker Godde, believes that what Lhe has been needing all along is more temperament. "Trouble with me," she said, jabbing at her needlepoint, "is that I've been loo easy-going. In my picture career I haven't fought for some good roles which f should have had. In my marriuge with Jack Doyle I didn't fight to preserve our happiness until it was too late. Well, almost too late. 1 kept giving him another chance, and another. "No, I don't know that Jack will come back to me. He and this Mrs. Godey, or however you pronounce her name, say they want to be married.

The high value hns been placed upon the love of Boxer Jack Doyle, from wlionj Judith was divorced last April. band. It's time somebody in this family did a little fighting!" "He Can Fight" This last was a reproof against Doyle, the Irish Thrust, who is supposed to be an actor, singer and pugilist but who seems content with the avocations of a playboy. "He isn't much of an actor, and never will be," admitted Miss Allen. "He has a nice voice, though not good enough to be a real singer. But he can fight—if he only would!" Though soft-spoken and apparently demure, the little blond screen player knows quite a lot about the slugging and bone-crushing professions. Once she was the wife of Wrestler Gus Sonnenbcrg. Over her fancywork, she said, "Jack is not a technical boxer; he's a street-fighter, a mauler, like Dempsey was. He had the championship of the world offered him— "Yes. that's what I said. Jimmy Johnson, the promoter, came to him while he was training for the Buddy Bear fight and talked about a series of matches that would have brought him the belt. Well, yes, he did lose the Bacr fight, but that was because he wouldn't train. He beat King Levinsky, didn't ho? And he could have gone on—to Tommy Farr and Joe Louis. Oh, he could mur—demolish Louis, just simply demolish him" A Circuitous Route Miss Allen_ has astonished Hollywood, as well as the wealthy dei fcndant in her alienation suit, by her strategy of trying to win back her husband by the somewhat circuitous route of divorcing him. First she asked for nn annulment, which was denied. Then on April 16, 1937, she secured an interlocutory decree which becomes final in April, 1938. Just by reading the statements of Doyle and Delphine Dodge, ns the motor heiress prefers to be known, you might get the impression that Miss Allen's love had cooled, to flare again like a sunset in Technicolor when a rich rival began toying with the affections of the Thrush. But the actress says it wasn't like that at all, really; she was divorcing him to test his loyalty. "I'll tell you about it," she said. "I have always been honest with the press. "Jack just wouldn't work. He is a big, loveable, irresponsible boy. When he was supposed to be training, ho uould leave the camp and play around and drink. During the two years we were together I used all my money supporting him. 1 offered to pay for voice lessons, and English and dramatics. I gave him some lessons myself. He Left Poor John "It's amusing—this gag about his having gone to Cambridge, and the 'one about him and this Mrs. Goddy or Goady reading books together. Jack never had much schooling, and he wouldn't read a book for a thousand dollars. "Anyway, I kept giving him one more chance, but he wouldn't settle down, mid finally I decided to give him his freedom as soon as possible, and then if he came through and made good I would know it was because he wanted me back. The trip to England was to be the big test. My brother, John Elliot, went with him, and John was to tutor him and help him to save his money. Jack was to work hard and establish annuities for himself and me. You have seen some of Jack's letters to me pleading for me to take him back. "But over in England he met this Mrs. Gowdy, and that was the eml of his good intentions. Why, he even left |)oor John stranded in England. i "Would I take him back now? Why i of course!

The following editorial, published Oc» tober 12, 1937, in the Pine Bluff Daily Graphic, reveals some interesting side lights on the Independent candidacy of Mr. Miller, It is a prophecy and a warning. A SMART BIT OF SCHEMING The political plots and counterplots that are being spun behind' the scenes in this senatorial campaign are many. The general puk» ' lie may know little and care less about them, but the politicians are watching every move, and it appears the foundations of future campaigns are being laid in this campaign. One of the smartest bits of foundation-laying has been accomplished by one about whom there has been no public mention, He is Mr. Homer AdMns, collector of internal revenue. Mr. Adkins and Mr. Grady Miller, the late Senator Hobinsott's brother-in-law, were for a long time the senior senator's lieutenants in Arkansas. They, it is claimed, looked after his interests and dispensed patronage when he was away about his senatorial duties. All federal employees in the state and many others are aware of that. Now, it is also pretty well known that Mr. Adkins has had his eye on the office of congresmsan from the Fifth District, For some time before Senator Robinson's untimely death he had been making up his mind that 1938 would be the year to go after it, because, by that time, it was anticipated that Senator Robinson would haV.e been elevated to the Supreme Court and would have relinquished control of the patronage in Arkansas upon which Adkins depended for his living and future. He WES hopeful that he could, with Senator Robinson's help, defeat Congressman David D. Terry. He wasn't so sure about some other potential candidates, among them Brooks Hays, Democratic national committeeman whom Terry had nosed out in a special election in 1933 by a piece of vote manipulation that was generally conceded to be unsavory, to say the best. But he was getting ready to shoot at it, anyway, and the news had been bruited about. Then, after Senator Robinson's death the Democratic State Committee nominated Governor Carl Bailey to succeed him. The anti-Bailey politicians seized upon the opportunity to promote opposition to their implacable and always successful enemy, and, by a process fantastic in Democratic tradition, got Congressman John E. Miller into the race as Bailey's opponent. Here was a dream of a situation for Homer Adkins. He knew his goose would be cooked if Bailey were elected to the Senate because the two have been on opposite sides of the political fence since the time they were both in the Pulaski county courthouse together., He would join forces with the anti-Bailey crowd. and throw his support quietly to Miller. If Miller were elected, everybody would be jolly. But if Miller were defeated by Bailey? Ah, beautiful thought, if only he could get Congressman Terry of the Fifith District to come out openly for Congressman Miller, the independent candidate! Terry would be eliminated if Adkins decided to enter the Fifth District congressional race in 1938, and Homer could have an ace in the hole regardless of th outcome of the senatorial race. Whether Terry fell inot the trap or walked into it with his eyes open out of sheer dislike for Bailey is immaterial. At any rate he did what no sane politician with his eyes on 1938 would have done. He avowed openly his intention of supporting Miller, the Independent candidate. No one could know better than Terry what it means to espouse the cause of an Independent against a Democratic nominee in art election, general or special. The Democratic Party rule says it means that you can't participate in a primary election for two years. The courts have upheld that rule. Terry know that, because hu invoked the rule against all the Brooks Hays voters who had voted for Independent candidate Carroll Wood for justice of the State Supreme Court in the previous special election in 1933. And the courts upheld him, as the courts cannot fail to do again in similar circumstances. So Terry knows—as does Homer Adkins, you may be sure—that it is not a question of the state commitee or county committees barring anyone Irom participation in a Democratic primary in 1938. Terry's opponent will attend to that little matter, with the backing of the courts. And, if Congressman Terry should be so foolhardy as to run for re-election in 1938, the opponent who may invoke the party rule and eliminate Terry is quite likely to be Homer Adkins, Adkins hasn't put himself on record as favoring the Independent candidate. And he won't. Furthermore, when the time comes, you can bet your sox that he will cast his vote for the Democratic nominee and thus keep his political skirts clean for 1938. Incidentally, there is a lesson there for potential candidates for county and local offices, as well as district and state, who are thinking of jumping off the deep end with an Independent candidate in this election. Such would-be 1938 candidates need not worry about the state or county committees doing anything to them in 1938. They won't. But opposing candidates with a clear Party record can and will. They will not only challenge the right of Miller supporters to seek office in a Democratic primary, but they will challenge the right of his friends to vote for him, as Terry did the Hays-Wood voters in 1933. And the courts will uphold them in 1938 as they upheld Terry then. The average non-political citizen doesn't give a hoot about party regularity, if it interferes with his convictions. He is going to vote for Bailey or Miller, as he wishes, and cheerfully take his chances on losing a vote in a future primary: But the politician, to whom it certainly will mean trouble, is going to think twice about his own position and worry considerably about the friends he is going to count upon to support him in 1933.
