Ike Murry in supporting the Jonesboro jurist.

At this afternoon's meeting in "who can carry any vote." "On a nqmber of occasions, I publicly stated-that if I did not make the run-off, would vote for Paris, the Texas and Oklahoma ] any one of my opponents against representatives will be hearing details of the plan from Charles fienour, consulting engineer who pas completed a survey intended show that navigation is feasible Red river from Shrevcpprt to Texarkana and Dangerfield — and jthen it will be up to the Paris icetirig to decide whether they want to extend the navigation promotion further north and west to Denison. Texaj-kana Chamber of Commerce sent its secretary and an the present (McMath) administration, including Judge Cherry," said Tackett. "That I will do." Tackett declined to confirm or deny a newspaper report that he might run as an independent against Rep. Oren Harris in the November general election. But, the congressman did point out thatj he always has been a regular Democrat. • The Arkansas Gazette said last night that disgruntled supporters of Tackett in Columbia, Miller, Frances Frnzler Miss Frances Frazier.daiiKhter of Mr. and Mrs. W.

I told them |(Hope would certainly support any honest program to make Red river navigable once more, but that Fulton, in our county, was the historic head of navigation and had to be included in the calculation. Certainly Hope wouldn't be orazy enough to join in a program to take Red river from Arkansas and give it t6 Texas — putting us 30 miles from the proposed navigation channel instead of the 15 miles it' present. Getting'BadK t8rthat Paris' meeting today, here is part of the news report which announced that ses- seat. Columbia County has been in the old Seventh Congressional District, represented by Harris until the 1951 congressional redistricting, in which Arkansas lost one of its seven house seats. Miller, Howard and Pike Counties were in Tack ett's old Fourth District. These three along with four other counties were combined with all of Harris old territory into the new Fourth District. Tacketl denied that he and Harris had -tnnde a deal, whereby Harris would/ support Tackett's gubernatorial candidacy in return for slbn: "Chairman A. G. (Pat) Mayse, Paris publisher, pointed out that navigation had been approved to Shreveport, with plans calling for the construction of the lateral Overtoil canal. First work on the canal and navigation is scheduled to be started this year as part of the government appropriation is for that purpose. ' "Senour completed the survey to Texarkana in the past few months, and' as results were favorable, quick approval is anticipated. It is anticipated that cost of construction of the project from Denison to Tex- arjtana would be low because of the proposed six dams to be located between the two points that would give a steady water supply and allow the river banks to be stabilized." The only definite accomplishment to date is the navigation project as far north as Shreveport — but big plans are underway in our own section and they don't include southwest Arkansas. They are designed and promoted by Texas, for the benefit of Texas, with an I assist from Oklahoma. Tackett staying out of a contest Allies Deal Red China Smashing Double Loss SEOUL, Korea, lUlM— The United Nations handed the Communists a smashing double detent todny, destroying or dnmanlng live enemy juts in an air buttle and recapturing straotRic "Old Baldy" hill on IIH' Western ground front. The Allied victories came as the Communists celebrated the 25th anniversary of the "triumphant" Chinese Red army. Among the con- isratulalory messages announced by the Chinese was one from Soviet Premier Joseph Stalin. Three enemy M1G-15 jet fighters were shot down and two damaged in a ID-minute- air battle between 32 F-86 Sabrejets and GO MIGs just below the Yalu River in northwest Korea. It was the first Communist challenge to U. N. air superiority since July 23. Credited with shooting down the MIGs were 1st. Lt. Gene F. Rogge, Auburn, Neb.; 1st. Lt. Alfred Mil- Daniel J. Dennemy, Sun Valley, Calif. The 60 MIGs came, from an enemy force of 1.300 tucked safely beyond the Yalu River border in Manchuria. The Red Air Force had not ventured north in such strength since July 4, when Subrejets shot down 12 MIGs. Melon Festival Committees Report Progress At a meeting of the Watermelon Festival committee and organl*a tlon heads Wednesday night all committees reported they are functioning and making preparations to carry out their part in the days activities. The group Is urging tike stores to closu thoir doors at 11 a.m. on the festival day, Wednesday, Aug. 8. The activities of the day will begin at 10 a.m. with u street parade and immedltcly followed by county nnd district candidates speaking at the park at 11 a.m., followed by the rest ot the day's nativities. There will be plenty of hot doffi*, hamburgers, sandwiches, soda-pop und ice cream and watermelon In the food line wltii several amusement stands in operation. It will certainly be a day on which the entire family may come and enjoy themselves every minute of the time. All conditions point up to one of the finest events to bo held in Hcmpsten'd County. between the two congressmen to represent the new district. "There definitely was no deal," Tackett said. "I got out of Oren's way. I did everything in my power to keep him from having opposition. Sid McMath thought he (Harris) was supporting me. I did, too. Take a look at the returns. His district beat me. The people sup porting me had every reason to expect I'd get his support too." "I realize now that I should have made that (congressional) race in the first place."

Brannan said the states to be represented include Tennessee, Arkansas, Missouri, Kentucky, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina.

The prematurely white - haired judge flew to Magnolia, seat of just interests and make a counter attack. No one objects to Texarkana's effort to reach navigable water — hut when that effort robs its neighbor it is doomed to failure.

Morse, a frequent dissenter from GOP policies, said control of the Republican national convention changed hands between the time the platform was written and the time Dwight D. Eisenhower was nominated for president and Sen. .Richard M. Nixon (R-Cal) for vice president. "Reactionary Republicans were in control of the convention when the platform was written," he said. But "one section of the party won the platform fight while the other side won the nomination fight," Morse explained. The GOP platform planks on foreign policy and civil rights bore Morse's strongest criticism. He said the civil rights plank of Officers Have Clue in Bonk Robbery AUGUSTA, Ark. I/Pi — Law enforcement officers last night re ceived thoir first break in the iden tification of two men who robbec the Augusta Bank last Monday o" about $6,OGt).

The two men walked Into the bank just as it was closing at 3 p. m. Monday. They said they wanted to cash a check. Once inside the building, one man held Cashier Billy Mills and two women bookkeepers at gun point while the other scooped up the money sack. Pendergist said the rear license plate of the getaway car was turned up but two pedestrians noticed a tag bearing the name of "Herft Motor Co., Memphis, Tenn.," on the rear of the automobile. Police are centering their search for the pair in Northeastern Arkansas and Eastern Tennessee. The automobile was last seen about five miles north of Augusta on Highway 33, Pendergist said.
