Both the fo"tncomln». lX'mo:ruUc primary ami Hie prospective special .session of the legislature were in the foreground. Earlj tills week the primary threatened to force the .special session issue into the background, but yesterday's "Information" about Ilic general Assembly j renewed interest in it. Now. with "reliable sources" point!))? to a call for tlie It'disla- tors by the end of tills week, and the election bandwagon already rolling slowly, liolel lotUic-.s an; providing a congestion of gossip. The previously undisturbed lobbyists now must .share their Jiendquar- ters wUh those interested In elective offices, Siiice tile early part of February, when Gov. Bailey announced intentions of calling tlic legislators for the purpose oJ retiring the .stale's highway bonds, considerable speculation has been evident over oilier likely Items of legislation. However, the first of this week, general assembly discussion wns diverted slightly by election talk. Although approximately 10 weeks remain before the ballots close, aspiring statesmen tire expected to throw their hats into the ring mid enter into the heat of battle, maneuvering from their quarters In local hotel rooms, long.before the state's citizenry lakes up the issue at the polls, Rep. John McClellan's action Sunday is expected to serve as the stimulus. Others, who only were waiting for someone to make the precedent, probably will follow suit —announcing their plans, and the office for which "my friends and advisers have urged me lo seek"— in the ensuing weeks. Now that the legislature issue has come (o a head again, "political row" has become n meeting place for both lobbyists and biennial bar- (erers. Two major items of discussion amoiij prospective legislation are (lie bond refunding program ami construction of two new state sanatoriums. The slate municipal league this week announced it is starting a movement to gnln n portion ol the gasoline tax for municipalities at trie same lime (he highway program is enacted. The state's legislators also are swayed between the issues attracting political- observers. They must consider each development—special session and interest in the Campaigns—alike. Those seeking reelection arc of the opinion that their action ill the special session- it one. Is called—can provide them more recent issues on which to base their respective campaigns. As for the election, all major offices have free-for-all races in prospect. ' Al least three. Sen. Caraway. Ale- Clellan and j. Rosser Venable, will j vie for the senate post. Mrs. Caraway is seeking re-election in the upper house of Congress, while McClellan wants a promotion from the House of Representatives. All three likely candidates were active in the successful campaign of Senator John Miller. The governor's race hinges upon what Gov. Bailey decides lo do. Ifuniors have had it that he will run for the senate, others Indicate he will seek re-election, and other quarters report, dial he will not run lor any office. The only almost certain entrants ; in the governor's race are R. A. (Ec-b) cook, former Piilaski county judje and defeated candidate for Sovernor In I!)3B. and VI. K. McNutt, Eatesvtlle educator, cook has made numerous appearances at meetings and banquets over the slate in recent weeks, apparently primim- toi the race. Lt. Gov. Bob Bailey and Attorney General Ja:k Holt have been touted as possible gubernatorial candidates, The former probably will run if Ihe governor seeks Ihe senate post and backs him far the governorship. Holt, although he already has, announced for re-election to (lie nl- torne,- general position, might change his plans should the chief executive decide not to rim and support him lor the state's hl»h seat. i " Political observers report that Ihe chief executive would seek financial aid from the lieutenant governor, should they pair on the ballots as coalition candidates for the gov- But Medical Ethics Holds !

So Earl u. Darling wants to die, lie linx read of ell'orts lo li'giill/.e so-called '/mercy death." And he not only wants it, lie knows a way it e:uld be applied. "Lcl a group of doctors each be jiven a hypodermic needle," he says. "Let all but one bo filled with n harmless substance. Let a deadly substance be placed In that one. "Then each doctor would be given a needle, not knowing which was deadly. All could then Inject Ihe liquids into the patient's veins, cither nt one time or at different, periods. "!f the patient were given all the Injections a( once, no one would ever know which doctor was the agent of death. If the hypodermics were given at different times, the ernorship and senate. For the most, part, Incumbents in major state offices will seek reelection, rumors Indicate.

Darting admits such a practice would have to be closely guarded by tliii medical profession. "Mercy death should lie granted only at the request of the patient," he says, "never at any other time, no mutter how III Die patient might, be. The practice would have lo be closely supervised by the medical profession. "But it people allow a dbg lo .suffer, they may be prosecutc<| mi- tier Ihe law. Why, then, should a human being be made to live in pain?" Darling lias suffered from (he apparently Incurable heart ailment for more than three years. For a time he was In St. Joseph's liospilal in Syracuse, but now he is under the care of his family at home. Ills wife, nml their only child, an adult daughter, know of his desires and beliefs, but do not discuss them. Darling is not gloomy, but his gravity and sincerity in his plan is evident. He wauls to die. Id-son explained she means the 10 years bclween an actress' 35th year and her 45th birthday.
