As Ihe Nr-f;ro question .split v.-hile leaders into two eamps, House Speaker I toy V.

Arnall's position just ahout guarantees [he assemhly will convene itself in May or June. This would also Hive Harris a chance lo seek ]>assa;;e of his proposal to give the teachers a SO per rent pay raise. To remove the present primary law would mean .scrapping ihe closely-guarded county unit system of represenlation and other voting regulations. Former C v ov. Eugene Talmadge. also expected to run for oilice nynin Ihis year. v,'as in Ihe Harris camp. But In.- suugcsled that the coun'.v unit .system be- made a pail of ilv Democratic party organization.
