Blythevffle (Ark.) Courier Newi - Saturday, June 11, W - PtfD Dm Arkansas' News Week By BILL SIMMONS Associated Press Writer The gubernatorial race neared the half way point this week in formal campaign openings. Jim Johnson became the third In the Democratic field of eight to put the formal touch to a campaign he actually started several weeks ago. His formal opener sounded much like his Informal blasts of list month—blasts against William J. Smith, a Little Rock attorney who advises Gov. Orval Faubus on legal matters. Kenneth S. Sulcer, the first to jump into the race, also was the first to formally kick off his camapign, and Sam Boyce, the prosecuting attorney who fought Faubus through the Young Democrats, was second. Next in line is Frank Holt, wh« opened a campaign head- quarters In Little Rock Friday and has a statewide telecast tentatively set for next week. Holt said the elecast, from Little Rock, will formally Introduce his campaign. He plans * rally in Harrison, his hometown, a few days later. * * . » The other candidates haven't said when they'll have a formal campaign opening. They may just keep swinging with campaign barrages without a formal entrance into the talkfest. Formal entrance or not, they're talking, and they talk about people who aren't in the race about as often as not. William J. Smith, the governor's legal advisor, has come in for a big share of talk. Jim Johnson has yet to miss an opportunity to link Smith to what he terms flaws in the pres- ent administration. Smith says he has no plans to respond to the attacks. Other candidates have mentioned Smith, but Johnson is leading the field In this category by miles. Gov. Orval Faubus, and his administration, has been the target of the candidates, too, even though he Isn't seeking a seventh term. Boyce reinforced hli statewide exposure with the YD battle, claiming that Faubui was behind attempts to takeover the organization. Boyce has altered his tactics some, but the antl- adminisration theme Is still prominent. Winston Chandler and Kenneth Sulcer have blasted -the administration, too, on everything from asphalt sales to the state insurance rate increases. THE COST IN MONEY—Highway accidents are an expensive proposition In terms of both cash and lives in the United States. Newsmap above shows how total financial i liability resulting from motor vehicle accidents during 1965 works out in terms of the cost for each registered vehicle in each of the states. Statistics were compiled by State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co. in cooperation with National Safety Council, THE COST IN LIVES—Only three states—Alaska, Hawaii and Rhode Island—finished 1965 with less than 100 motor-vehicle accident deaths. The National Safety Council registered a total of 47,204 for the year for the 50 states and the District of Columbia. California, with far and away the most registered vehicles, was also far ahead in deaths. Alaska was lowest in both counts. NOTICE , FOR! ON-PREMISE BEER !
