Sulcer On State Goverment raise the standard of living of those who need it most and raise the per capita income of Arkansas to a respectable level. We must find ways to increase the per capita income of Arkansas. Q _ Do you have any plans for restoring the intent of the Mack-Blackwell Amendment? SULCER — I plan to restore the spirit and intent of the Mack-Blackwell amendment by limiting the governor's term to four years. This would stop the governor from selecting all members such as the case is now. I favor an open hearing to give the Highway Department a chance to answer all charges Which have been presented and restore the faith of the Arkansas people. Q — Do you favor a limit on the number of terms one man may hold as governor? SULCER — I will sponsor _ constitutional amendment limiting the governor's term to four yean with no immediate succession. Q —How do you view federal government, vis-a-vis state gov eminent? SULCER — When we are offered federal aid programs in Washington, the Arkansas lawmakers should demand that the bureau powers be returned to the state. I believe we should look over each federal aid program with caution and accept those programs which we neec to remain in a competitive position with other states. We should turn down the programs which will destroy the individual's ini tiative. The poverty program as such, is questionable since it offers no end results, but we do need funds to accelerate high- ; Sulcer (Editor'' Note: The Courier News has polled all candidates for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination to deter, mine their sentiments regarding key issues.

If so, what minimum would you propose: SULCER — Yes, I would favor a $1 an hour minimum wage bill with the following exemptions: agriculture, Social Security beneficiaries, small retail businesses and domestic help.

McCullough, 80, will be held tomorrow at 11:30 a.m. at New Bethel M.B. Church, with Rev. G"H. Conaway in charge. Burial will be in Sandy Ridge Ceme ilete investigation of the Arkan sas Highway Department. I be- ieve public expenditures should >e subject to an investigation and a report given from time to time. When elected, I will ask that this report b« made. Q _ DO you favor the proposet modernization of Arkansas' ju dicial system? SULCER — I favor many o the recommended changes proposed by the Study Commission for the Arkansas Judicial Sy tem. Q — What action would yoi take to insure enforcement in all parts of the state of liquo and gambling laws? SULCER — As chief execu live, I would ask that the Btat police and all law enforcemen officers uphold the laws whic we are charged with enforcing This would include liquor an gambling violations. There wi' be no open casino type gamblin while I am governor. Q — What are your views on education? SULCER — I believe Arkansas should constantly seek new heights in education. As governor I would appoint a Governor's Advisory Committee on Education charged with the responsibility of finding ways and means to put us in the top bracket in the field of education. Arkansas must face this challenge. Arkansas will have over $30 million uncommitted funds at the beginning of the next biennium which could accelerate this program. I believe the (above committee) could recommend the best use of this money. Q — Do you have any plans for helping the under-educated find a place in the increasingly Arkansas should keep a team f experts in those sections of ur country from which we can est draw new industry. They hould constantly be telling the marvelous story about the vasl pportunities and resources ol irkansas. The good industrial limate of Arkansas must be old. Industry will not come to us voluntarily. We must go to hem. Q — Do you have any plans o enhance the development of the tourist industry? SULCER — Tourism is the greatest underdeveloped re- ource of our state. The Pub icity and Parks Commission needs revamping. Also, this commission should work wi* heAIDC. Q — Do you favor the Dirk ien Amendment? SULCER — I do favor the Dirksen amendment I have no Jans to wo* for this amend ment. Q — Do you favor any restrictions in the use of the gov irnor's emergency fund? SULCER - Since the Arkan as Legislature meets only once every two years, the governor must have broad use of this und. I see no need for restric tions in the use of the governor's emergency fund, however, we do need a law stating that the governor will give the public i 24-hour advance notice befon lispensing the funds. This wil give the taxpayers time to be leard and seek an injunction i' the expenditures are not propel n the function of state govern ment. Q _ Do you favor strengthen ng the Legislature's investiga ive powers? SULCER — I believe the leg islatuie's investigation power are adequate. However, I als selieve the Legislature has been [ax in this field of responsibility Q — Which public records d you think should be closed? SULCER — Any records in volving the public or taxpayers funds should be open. All state boards should follow the law and hold open meetings. My administration will have open door meetings. Q _ Do you favor voting machines? SULCER — I do favor voting machines. The larger precincts should be provided with these machines within the next four years. Q — Do you favor school consolidation, home rule for cities, constitutional reform? SULCER — We have now approached the day when, we must have some school consolidation to broaden school services for our children. I do favor nome rule for the cities if increased taxation can be voted on by the citizens. . Some constitutional reform Is in order and I think this can be done by amendments. One of the first needs, I believe, is to raise the elected officials' pay which will, in itself, offer new vitality to our state government. One-Fourth of Mankind (23) Foil of tht Kuomintang by Don Oakley and John Lone Ccwunistt Hop* toM A Bridge 'Between Mie Capitalist VJe»t and RUMM'.-MM, 1941. 19*9-Let Rewlution Commence What China needs it not more morali but more' prison* for politician*. * In 1945, by grace of two atom bombs, China was freed of the Japanese *nd its revolution could resume. Why the philosophy that eventually triumphed was that of Mao Tse-tung and not that of Sun Yat-sen (as interpreted by Chiang Kai-shek) still perplexes Americans. There are many "culprits/' but first among them stands Japan, which ever since the Sino-Japanese War of 1894 had jealously prevented China from achieving unity and had brutally attacked her in 1937 when Chiang was beginning to make real progress. In "China's Destiny" (1943), Chiang glorified Confucian China, blaming its troubles on the West's "unequal treaties" (they were finally abrogated in the same year he wrote). A true patriot and personally incorruptible, his great support was hi* great undoing—the bankers, landowners, profiteer!, all the repressive and conservative elements opposed to reform in a China ravaged by warfare. Armed at last with modern weapons from the defeated Japanese and the Russians, who had swooped down like vultures into Manchuria, the Communists began winning victories at a pace that amazed even them. Significantly, it was Chiang's best troops, withheld from battling-the Japanese, who surrendered most readily to the Reds. Harsh measures like the public execution of black marketeers only underscored the disintegration of Kuomintang authority. By the end of 1949, America having washed its hands of him, Chiang and the remnants of his army evacuated to Taiwan. But Chinese Communist intervention in 1950 in the war in Korea—a Chinese "sphere of influence" sine* Emperor Wu Ti conquered that country (and Viet Nam) in the second century B.C. — brought a renewal of American aid. In China, meanwhile, the moderate goals of the "agrarian reformers" were soon replaced by the most thoroughgoing totalitarian order* ing of their lives the Chinese had ever seen. Forty years of hindsight show that China's break with Russia, beginning in earnest about 1961. was foreshadowed by the independent course taken by Mao in the late 1920s when he rewrote Marxist dogma to argue that the future of communism in China lay with the; peasantry. And-40 mllleniums of Chinese history suggest that his fanatical goal of world revolution, is but an extension of old China's claim to be the civilizing center of the world. NEXT: What Next for China?

Q _ What, if any, changes would you make in the Arkansas Industrial Development Com mission?

DANBURY, Conn. (AP)Walter R. Hicks, 60, an expert in the motion picture sound !ield and developer of pictures aboard airlines, died Friday. WASHINGTON (AP)-Gen. Generoso Campos Marqueti, 84, one of the last heroes of Cuba's war of independence, died Thursday. He lived in Miami and died in Washington where he had planned to observe Cuba's independence anniversary Friday. Would you describe yourself as liberal, moderate or conservative? SULCER — I am neither liberal nor conservative as such, but rather, one that believes we should evaluate each government program that is presented and accept help in the fields of our greatest need and at the same time oppose outright government control in many areas. I believe Arkansas should weigh each federal program with regard to how it might rehabilitate Arkansas people, with the idea of some termination period so that we might remain free as a state with our vested powers. I am opposed to federal programs which offer no end results. LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Rep. L. H. Autry of Mississippi County suggested Friday that Gov. Orval Faubus use his emergency fund to hire additional investigators to iron out problems in the insurance industry. Autry made the suggestion at a meeting of the Legislative Council, which lias ordered the state Insurance Department to move against companies and salesmen who misrepresent policies or otherwise defraud pol icyholders. His suggestion was shelved for the time being until a study could determine whether the In- urance Department could legally vse emergency fund money to hire invtstigitori. Arkansas News Briefs By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MCGEHEE, Ark. (AP) — George A. McNeely of Me-1 Gehee, grand dragon of the United Klan of Arkansas, said Friday he and his group are trying to stop federal harass- men of local school districts over desegregation. He said Klansmen would begin circulating petitions next week to get Congress to act on the matter, A letter he sent to Klan members Thursday referred to "guidelines set by bureaucrats and a power hungry dictator in our nation's capitol." The letter said that if the petition campaign fails, "we shall consider other avenues of approach." This, McNeely explained, includes grassroots political organization, crossing of party lines and education of the public on the Communist men- Wreck Kills Four; Injures Two Today LAKE VILLAGE, Ark.
