States Righters to Get Aid of Boss Crump Memphis, Tenn., Oct. 7 —(UP.i —Political Loader E. H. (Boss Ed) Crump today threw the weight of his Tennessee organization behind slates rights presidential and vicc- presideiuial Candida I es. The Crump statement supporting Govs. J. Strom Thurmond of South Carolina and Fielding L. Wright, of Mississippi . came' last night, on the eve of a big States Rights rally here today. The powerful political leader said that "we have decided to go for the Slates Rights ticket for president" after conferring wilh Mayor James Pleasants and county commission chairman E. VV. Hale here. Eliminating the other candidates from his favor, Crump said that ' Wallace is completely out -and Truman has sold the South down the river ior Negro votes in large Northern cities." "Dc-wey is no friend of the (South," Crump said, "his argument against fair railroad rates for the south and his other ideas on things dear to the South are too much." "Thurmond and Wright are the men for us to vote for," he concluded. Crump heads a powerful political organization which had not lost an election in Tennessee for more than 20 years until its candidates were defeated for governor and IT. S. Senators in the recent Democratic primary election. 'THE BIGGEST LITTLE STORE Its' TOWN" As advtrlited in MADEMOISELLE and SEVENTEEN . As shown in wine suede and black suede.
