Cherry issued the warning a.t his radio talkathon after a listener had It you Ihink this Is merely a asked him if it were true that McMalh was lisled as a millionaire by Ihe financial raling firm of Dun & Bradslrcel. And, asked the listener, didn't Cherry think that showed McMath had had a pretty profitable tenure in the governor's office? Cherry replied that he had no doubt that 'the governor's office had beer, "profitable" for McMath, but thai he didn't believe the gov- crnor was a millionaire.

Cherry declared that McMath had backed up on one "hysterical blitical disturbance I advise you: a take an accurale look at what's oing on in the financial markets. )n July 31 the Wall Street Journal tatistical Bible of business, rr- ^rted thai its compilation of 325 imerican companies showed their Average profit for the second quar- «r of 1952 to be '. 10.8 per cent 'Pss than for the same period » •ear ago —• that the decline is ;reater than the loss shown for he first quarter this year, and hat this makes Iho fifth consecu- Sve quarter in which earnings Hempstead Women to Attend Rural Health Conference 4 Hempstead County women will represent the Hempstead County Council of Home Demonstration Clubs at the 2nd Rural Health Conference in Little Rock Thursday and Friday, Aug. 7 and 8 al tho Marion Hotel.

Says Vote for McMath If Job in Doubt CONWAY, Ark. 1*1 - Guber- McMath Attacks AP&L Visions Easy Victory By CARL BELL MEI.KNA. Ark. Iff) — Holding up his administration as the greatest i in Arkansas' history, Sid McMath says he'll become the state's second governor to serve three terms. He predicted here last night that he will beat Francis Cherry, his rival in the Aug. 12 Democratic runoff primary, by 53,000 votes. Only Jeff Davis has ever won three terms as governor of Arkansas. "Despite vicious political opposition," McMath declared, "more roads have been built during my administration then in the previous twenty years. "We have improved all state services more than any other administration...and at the same have reduced the state's indebtedness 2.!1 million dollars. "The industrial payrolls of the state have increased 2. r > per cent since I've been your governor. The tourist trade has more than doubl ed. "My opposition said when I was first elected that I was too young to be governor. If I've done al' these things while I was lo young just think what I can do now thai I am grown-up." McMath is no\v 40 years old. On the other hand, the governor contended, Cherry "has no program lo pi- Arkansas."

"And they'll stay there as long as I- am governor," -he added. The talkathon—final phase of a three-section program yesterday- was held on the grounds of the yay it is done: The government! >ermits only a certain amount of ugar to be brought into the U. S. rom Cuba, and allocations and Homcstic prices are fixed on the pasis of this artificial, "scarcity" scarcity in the U. S, only, for ugar is running out of the plant- rs' ears in Cuba. Even in less scandalous instances Ihe federal control program has been an obvious failure. The cost pf political control, passed on to .he public in taxes, has mado prices extraordinarily high to the uyer and has reduced the seller's i>rofit. The third man in this bar- ainless market place which w« all the U. S. A. is Mr. Politician and his fee comes high. On my 'desk is a circular sent iiit by the Ford Motor company to ill Us dealers. You will recall hat recently the Ford company jsked the National Production Au- hority to increase its allocation in he total motor car sales allowablp low restricted to 21 per cent. The request was refused. What thn Tord dealers arc reading today is in editorial from the Wall Street Conway Police Chief M.M. Love estimated the audience at from 4,000 to 4,500. First two sections of the talka- thon were conducted from Russcll- ville and Searcy. Cherry was scheduled to speak in McGehee this morning but rain forced cancellation of the talk. His third Little Rock talkathon —part of it to be broadcast over a statewide network-was scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. this afternoon. Mrs. Bernie Wants Billy Rose Jailed BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. Wl — Mrs. Ben Bernie wants showman Billy Rose arrested. She says he showed several persons an affidavit by her former maid accusing her and Eleanor Holm, Rose's estranged wife, of improper conduct. , rc T h: Mrs. Bernie, widow of the band- had voted for the governor at the preferential Democratic primary. He said he wanted to vote for Cherry in the, runoff but feared for his job. "If you have a family and you think your vote may be known and cause you to lose your job. I say go ahead and vote for McMath," Cherry said. Cherry repealed previous assurances that he planned no. discharges of employes merely because they were known to have voted against him. Cherry said he would fire Insurance Commissioner Herbert Graves if he's elected governor.-He didn't know about Adjutant Gen. John B. Morris. "Herbert Graves is a good man and I like him personally," Cherry told a questioner, "but he has one fatal defect — he's just been working for Homer too long." The reference was to former Gov. Homer Adkins, a power in the McMath administration and a frequent target of Cherry's. Graves also was Adkins' insurance commissioner when the latter was governor. Cherry told another inquiring listener that he didn't know Morris and couldn't say whether he would be retained as adjutant general. Indorsements of Cherry read at last night's talkathon included one from Vic Wood, Ft. Smith, former president of the Arkansas Federa accused him falsely of being for socialized medicine "every time I come up for election." Ironically, the street in which his estimated 2,000 listeners stood was Cherry Street. McMath took nu apparent notice of that. The governor yesterday was ii territory carried by Cherry in thi first primary, but that didn't slow him down. In an afternoon appearance at !i meeting of the Woodruff Eleclrii Co-operalive in Forresl City, ht charged that the Arkansas Powei and Light Company tried to "use the Highway Audit Commission t make me reverse my stand on Ihe Ozark Generating Plant." He said its "coinsidence" that the chairman of the HAG, which severely criticized McMath's administration, also is a member ot AP&L's Board of Directors. The HAC chairman is R. H. Dickenhorst of Morrillon. "Bul they failed," McMath added. "So now they're going all out to defeat me." The governor said he had helped get money from the federal government for the construction of Lhe REA steam generating plant at Ozark, a project fought by AP&L, and had backed it all the Grand Jury to Resume Bishop Probe LITTI.IC noCK (fn— The Pulaskl Grand Jury today will resume Us investigation of a 6-time slayer's statement that he paid $1500 for a 90-day leave from an Arkansas penitentiary.

The rain both nights was accom-j ponied by violent flashes of lighten ing and thunderstorms. According lo Experiment Station records 2.54 inches of rain fell Monday night and 1.93 inches fell last night and early this morning.

The district attorney's office said it does not expect to try to extradite Rose from New York, but he can be arrested if he comes to California. The complaint is based on an affidavit obtained by Rose from Alberta Jones, 30, of Los Angeles. It states that while she was employed by Mrs. Bernie in New York in 1944 she saw Mrs. Bernie and Mrs. Rose committing improper acts. Rose and his swimming queen wife are engaged in a bitter divorce battle.
