Rythevffle (Ark.) Courier Jfewi. Saturdiy, Miy T, MM- Pan «ve Arkansas' News Weefc Political Seas Now Calm By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The stormy weeks of the filing period wafted Into history and the political seas turned sedate and calm. Former congressman Brooks Hays stirred the'water on Monday. Campaign platforms began to' come to light during the week. In a coffee-and-donuts session In a Little Rock hotel, Hays emphasized the same points he talked about when he filed as a Democratic candidate for governor. They were: 1. Cooperation with the federal government without being dominated ty it. 2. Loyalty to the Democratic Party—something he's given all of his life, he said. And, while being praised as a "fine Christian gentleman," Hays, former president of the Southern Baptist Convention, made a joking jibe at the Republican Party: "I love everybody, including Republicans, and I want to give them the best things in life, too, except public office." Jim Johnson, the former Supreme Court justice, scheduled a 30-minute telecast for 8:30 p.m. Tuesday to explain his views on certain points for the gubernatorial campaign. And Gus McMillan of Sheri- dan, who became the second GOP candidate for the office this year, scheduled what he called a "pre-campaign speech" for 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Pine Bluff. Willing Witnesses All those invited to appear May 27 at a meeting of the Legislative Audit Committee agreed to attend. That is when the committee will look into the unauthorized $2.1 million worth of raises in the Highway Department earlier this year. The furor over the raises, since rescinded and refunded, led to the dismissal of two em- ployes after an investigation by the Highway Commission. The fired employes, the commission members, the state comptroller, the budget director and the former Highway Director Mack Sturgis, who approved the raises, all agreed to be at the meeting. Television stations immediately launched plans to televise the proceedings. Like Old Times Gov. Orval Faubus, a lame duck governor, turned on one of his old campaign ploys during the week: Blast the press. The deadline passed on April 27 for would-be political candidates, and Faubus didn't file for any race, but he criticized LIMA, Peru AP) — Peru's rational police chief has challenged a claim by Italian journalist Paolo Senise that he interviewed long-missing Cuban guerrilla leader Ernesto Guevara in a Peruvian mountain hideout.

The Italian magazine Le Ore published a report by Senise claiming he held a two-hour in terview with Guevara last month in a remote shack in the Andes outside Huancayo, a town 124 miles east of Lima. Senise, 42, said he gained the Impression that Guevara controls Communist guerrilla warfare in Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, Colombia and Peru. The Italin reporter said he tape-recorded the Interview "just in case somebody should question the truth of my statements" but that he had no camera and did not obtain picures. Guevara, once Fidel Castro's No. 2 man, disappeared from Cuba in March 1965. Castro hinted in a speech last Jan. 16 that Guevara was involved in revolutionary Cuba. work outside LONDON (AP) - The British government has told its Commonwealth partners it will work toward a "one-man, one-vote" democracy in Rhodesia in the talks next week with the African colony's breakaway regime.
