The Jonesboro chancery judge (till enter the governor's office next January without obligation to any man or faction or special in- Jterest. Those who supported him (originally were not a majority, vhich qualifies any obligation he night, feel he owed especially to Ithem. Yesterday's thundering majority came from a united front of anti-McMath folks who voted |for someone else in the first elec- :ion, and to these ,he owes nothing all — x.except .tip .bp a |Si6r for all the people of Arkansas. That, however, will take all of Francis Cherry's time and talent. And it will take plenty of patience on the part of the people — for the people themselves have made mistakes that Arkansas' new governor will have trouble rectifying. For instance, when young Governor Sid McMath took office someone sold hirn^ on the idea that we ought to increase our mortgage Pjpbt against the highway revenues. McMath advanced this proposal, honestly enough, during the campaign .preceding his election. We fought it then. And after he took office he put his 28-million-dollar debt-increase proposal to the people in a referendum. The Star lashed out at it, but to no avail. The people endorsed that 28-million dollar deal — the first increase in highway mortgage debt since the original road-construction days of governors John E. Martineau and Harvey Parnell 20 years ago. In a setup where the highway department is operated out of the governor's office it was exceedingly unwise to vote additional bonds, not knowing whether the money would be spent on trunk-line, re-, venue-producing roads, or squandered on political projects. But for that I do not blame Sid McMath. He was badly advised. I blame the geople. They had the issue checked Tip to them fairly and squarely in a referendum, and they didn't use the common sense God gave them. We have a constitutional amendment coming up in November which will divorce the State Highway Commission from political pressure by any one governor. But that's for the future. Francis Cherry's job next January will be to clean up the mis- Jakes of the past — and if the '^people, later on, complain abvlit the time it takes I suggest that they recall their own vote hardly four years ago to give the governor's office a 28-million-dollar bond spending authorization. They who had no caution then must have patience now. giving the Arkansas Democratic gubernatorial nomination to a little known country judge. "The talkathon," said Judge Francis Cherry, who defeated Truman-endorsed Gov. Sid McMath in yesterday's runoff primary, "enabled me to reach more voters than any other candidate. And it enabled the- voters to find out everything about me there is to know — even how I like my eggs for breakfast. The talkathon is a trademarked audience - participation program. The candidate sits before a microphone- and answers questions, popped by the visible audience c/PpacUo listeners. It also developed into a fund-raising medium for Cherry's campaign. The idea, conceived and owned by Houck & Co., a Miami, Fla.. was first used in the Florida last spring. It successful there advertising firm, for campaignig governor's race Crow Defeats Silveyfor Senate Seat On a basis of unofficial returns Dr. F, C. Crow of Hope was re- nominated to the Arkansas State Senate by a margin of some 952 votes in the 7th District composed of Hempstead, Nevada and Pike counties. The vote by counties: Crow Silvcy Hempstead 3010 2346 Nevada 1840 1445 Pike 1008 1115 5858 4906 Sen Crow's opponent was Tom J. Silvey of Bodcaw who is also a member of the state senate. A redistrictihg placed the two sen ators in the same district forcing them to oppose each other. What happened to Sid McMath? A war hero comes home. He takes the stump as a reformer, is elect<|*d prosecuting attorney, then gov- -•Jernor — and then plunges into political disaster at the tender age of 40. Why? Well, for one thing, few popular political figures are any better {ban their advisers. When young Sid McMath became governor he had behind him the late Carl Bail ey. one of Americas' great chief executives. But Bailey died. I have a premonition that the governor's advice soured after that. Certainly the sourest advice he ever got was when someone permitted him, or perhaps even urged him, to challenge Senator John L. wasn't quite as as it was for Cherry. Reggie Martin, the Houck representative who handled the talkathon in Arkansas, explains that the type of candidate has much to do with the success of the method. "Judge Cherry is perfect for the idea," Martin said. Cherry entered the campaign without a political record that could be attacked. He 'had served only as a chancery judge in East Arkansas. A sincere, prematurely grey man of 43, Cherry possesses a convincing voice. Throughout the campaign he answered an estimated 30,000 questions — many of them over and over again — in a soft conversational tone. Every now and then he would slip in a short speech, but never raised his voice or showed emotion. And, although the same question would come up countless times, the judge always seemed to give precisely the same answer. Cherry's answers weren't sugarcoated to please the listener. "I tell you what I believe," he frequently commented. Three veteran politicians who fell by the wayside in the July 29 preferential prirn.ary were quick to single out the Talkathon as the thing that beat them. Gov. McMath never openly admitted the importance of the Talk- athon, but he showed bis concern about it by running it down constantly in his campaign speeches and by instituting a similar but smaller-scale gimmick of his own Continued on Page Three tige of the office of Governor of Arkansas; and any time a man shows himself to be so bored with, the office he holds that be seeks re-election while openly coveting still another office he is just before being slapped down by a resentful public*— That's the sttry.
