In 1940, Bennett Champ may wir the Democratic nomination because the .wo-thirds rule is dead. There are 'actors in the party's internal situa- ion which suggest the possibility. Big, Rosy-Cheeked, round-faced Clark—vigorous, relatively young and nn orator of talent and force—is the outstanding presidential prospect iimong anti-New Deal Democrats who liope to keep Roosevelt from dominating the next convention. A Garner Favorite He is a favorite of Vice President John Garner and an intimate friend of National Chairman James Farley —who between them may choose the next Democratic nominee. He has been boomed by Bos Tom Pemlcrgast of Kansas City and hi.s recent overwhelming primary victory leaves no doubt he is Missouri's favorite son. Anathema to New Dealers after voting repeatedly against administration measures. Clark has scant hope of a Roosevelt blessing. He also is unpopular with organized labor. These handicaps make it easy to imagine a convention in which lie might get majority but not the two-thirds vote previously needed for nomination. Often Clark has praised Roosevelt and the bulk of his policies. Bui he is a states' rights Democrat who seems to believe in "states' rights" as a principle rather than as a cloak for Tory- ism.

A circuit court jury of 10 business men and two farmers convicted the couple of first-degree murder after deliberating an hour and a half.

Alfred (Pug) Dickson, accused by Anderson as the actual "trigger-man"' in the Cooley slaying, and Clarence (Bill) Johnson were called to trial Tuesday on first-degree murder , charges ini the crime. The state is asking their execution-also, with the indication that Anderson will be used as a prosecution witness. The formal sentencing of the Andersons was deferred pending the trial of Dickson and Johnson. Tried to Save Wife In a desperate effort to save his wife from the electric rrair, Andersoon took the stand as the only witness for the defense Monday night. Admitting that he took part in a plot to rob Mr. Cooley, he declared that Alfred (Pug) Dickson fired the fatal shot. As for himself he said that he never had the slightest intention of killing the grocery executive. He said that as soon as he and his wife arrived in Hot Springs, he had contacted Clarence (Bill) Johnson whom he had met while both were serving sentences in a federal prison in Springfield, Mo.
