Ark., Mny It— Oov. Carl E. Bniley announced his candidacy for rcnomiimtion as the Democratic candidate for the gubernatorial office at Piggolt late yesterday nftcrncjon nt . a good roads meeting sponsored by Piggott business men. Tho governor had maintained strict silence regarding his political plans until making hj s statement nt Plggott. His name had been linked with the governor's race by inanv observers who felt certain he \vculo be a candidate for re-election but others had predicted that lie would IK a candidate for the , senatorial sent held by Senator Hat, Me W. Caraway of Joncsboro. Oov. Bailey's statement in announcing his candidacy follows: "I am n candidate for a second term as governor of Arkansas. "My entire platform will be taken trom the text of my first and pnly political advertisement which will be published in the newspapers of the state as soon ns I can scrape together the money personally to pay for It. "After being chastised by the voters with a set of circumstances last fall, I didn't grin much, but I hnd to bear it. r found that I could benr it more easily by going ahead with the job of being governor to the best of my ability. That I have done. I was motivated by'a sincere desire to be of further service to the state In wider field. Arkansas needed senator, and I believed I was the man for (lie job. Few people, I nm sure, questioned,my earnest Intentions or my qualifications for the office. Apparently, il was that Itiey didn't Jlke my method of approach, although—surely—I didn't invent it, 1 am not bitter about It nnd my defeat last fall in a senatorial campaign cannot reasonably be considered to have any connection with the present, gubernatorial campaign. "This campaign will be conducted mille differently from others In which I have engaged. I will publish only one political advertisement, It will cost me ns much as I cnn afford to spend personally. If others choose to write or speak in my behalf, I shall appreciate the spirit, but I will not examine the substance nor be responsible for il, "Althougli_my health Is restored, I do not intend to engage In a speaking campaign over the state. I shall appear publicly as often as i.s normally expected of a governor. If urged, I daresay I shall speak favorably of my administration. If I engaged in a speaking campaign. I could only discuss my record and the accomplishments of my administration. That I have already (lone. No one has successfully at- Incketi the one or challenged the benefits of the other. I have been accused of making political mistakes. I plead guilty. They damaged me, however; not only my people or my state. The only thing I could add to the discussion would he to present the accomplishments of the recent special session of the General Assembly. They are too well known and widely felt to require discussion. Besides, If i mentioned these things with some of the pardonable pride I feel In them, I would be accused by the opposition of trying to steal the glory and take the credit due the legislature. Opposition harpies always credit the legislature with Programs that succeed, and condemn Ihc governor for those that fail. "So with your permission, r shall continue lo work at my job, which —also with your permission—I hope lo keep nnd deserve for two more years." P.I..
