Adlai Stevciwon over who's going to run Stevenson's 1952 presidential campaign, McKinney told a news conference yesterday, "There can bo only one general and he l.i the chairman of the. Democratic National Committee." But Wilson Wyatt, Stevenson's personal campaign manager, who attended the conference, said "Tho campaign is under the direction of Ihe governor, and there Is only one fltncral." The disagreement indicated tho Democratic National Committee will play a secondary role In the Illinois governor's bid for the presidency as Democratic standard-beat cr. Stephen A. Mitchell, a Chicago lawyer who Is Stevenson's own choice to succeed McKinney as chairman, aluo attended the meeting. He sided with Wyatt in the apparently good-humored argument, snyinu, "There's a com- rnandcr-in-chief and the others work for him. Gov. Stevenson is tho commander-ln-chlcf." Mitchell said ho would resign to- dny UK chief counsel for the House judiciary subcommittee investigation the Justice Department and will go to Washington Tuesday. His election to the national party chairmanship Is considered a formality. Mitchell snld he would keep the National Committee's headquarters in Washington. But Stevenson's own personal campaign headquarters will remain In Springfield. It was a reporter's question, call ing attention to the two campaign headquarters, that brought about the exchange between McKinney nnd Wyntt. McKinney said Stevenson's Springfield headquarters, headed by Wyatt, would co-ordinate its work with the National Committee, which directs the efforts of-all 48 Democratic state committees.

'McKinney, who for practical purposes relinquished the party chair manship yesterday and turned control over to Mitchell, said he would return to private business but would keep his hand in politics. He said he would be "extremely active" in the Stevenson campaign, but didn't say what part he would play. FARMERS!!

Cherry took our county of Hemp- Stead, 3,540 to 2,006; and Nevada county, 2,008 to 1,465. McMath was also beaten in Miller and Howard in -fact, I believe it is correct that Cherry took every' county in Jthis area which in the preferential !5prirnary had voted for Boyd Tack- {t.

Cherry by a Landslide as Mil Over McMalh Hears IOO,O Gentry, Chambers* Smith Arkansas' New Governor Talkathon Depends on the Man By CARL BELL LITTLE ROCK — (*) — A new, This is the most decisive election | unic l u e method of political cam- in Arkansas' recent history. It i S |P ai ? nln S was credited today with « I giving the Arkansas Democratic fa magnificent opportunity for tFrancis Cherry, and The Star con- 'gratulates him. The Jonesboro chancery judge enter the governor's office Inext January without obligation to I any man or faction or special in- Iterest. Those who supported him t originally were not a majority, I which qualifies any obligation he I might feel he owed especially to Ithem. Yesterday's thundering ma- Jjority came from a united front lot anti-McMath folks who voted Sfor someone else in the first election, and to these he owes nothing all —'except to be a good gover- Jjiior for all the people of Arkansas. That, however, will take all of Trancis Cherry's time and talent. fAnd it will take plenty of patience ithe people themselves have made [ mistakes that Arkansas' new gov- ' ernor will have trouble rectifying. For instance, when young Governor Sid McMath took office someone sold him on the idea that we ought to increase our mortgage |}Jebt 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 peo- | pie in a referendum. The Star la'shed 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, revenue-producing roads, or squandered on political projects. But for that I do not blame Sid McMath. He was badly advised. I blame the •Jpebple. They had the issue checked up 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 mistakes of the past — and if the Jpeople, later on, complain ab«|it '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-doUar bond spending authorization, They who had no caution then must have patience now. gubernatorial nomination to a little known country judge. "The talkathon," said Judge Francis Cherry, who defeated Tru- Hempstead man-endorsed Gov. Sid McMath in Nevada yesterday's runoff primary, "en- P&Q abled 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 or radio listeners. It also developed into a fund-raising medium for Cherry's campaign. The idea, conceived and owned by Houck & Co., a Miami, Fla.. advertising firm, was first used for campaignig in the Florida governor's race last spring. It wasn't quite as successful there 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 voiw. Throughout the campaign he answered an estimat- Crow Defeats Silveyfor Senate Seat On a basis of unofficial returns Dr. F.

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 primary were quick to single out the Talkathon as the thing that beat them. Gov.

What happened to Sid McMath? A war hero comes home. He takes the stump as a reformer, is elect, ed prosecuting attorney, then governor — and then plunges into political disaster at the tender age Of 40. Why? Well, for one thing, few popular political figures are any better than their advisers. When young Sid McMath became governor he had behind him the late Carl Bailey, one of Americas' great chief executives. But Bailey died. I have a premonition that the governor's political 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. JtcClellan although the issue was supposed to be the governorship of Arkansas — not the United States Senate sett.
