(AP Wire- photo) Drive Will Continue Democratic Party Copies Tactics Of Rival By BILL SIMMONS Associated Press Writer LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- The Democratic party's effort to copy the organizational tactics of the Republicans did not shake any foundations, but party chairman Charles Matthews says the drive will continue. Only about 50 persons showed up in Clinton last Saturday night for the first of a series of Democratic party regional rallies, despite the attraction of such "potential" gubernatorial candidates as Atty. Gen. Joe Purcell, state Rep. Sterling R. Cockrill Jr. of Little Rock, and others. HE'S SATISFIED "There are only 751 people in Clinton," Matthews said in an interview after the rally. "Using that as a basis, I'd say we When you only have one shot you have to aim very carefully. We have made the best whisky we know how. It is blended with 12 of the finest whiskies in Canada. It is aged for 4 long years. We want you to try one shot of it. Because we think one shot of it will convince you that Grande Canadian is the finest whisky you have ever tasted. And once you (and the people you tell about it) start drinking our whisky --nice things will happen. (A.) You will finally have a whisky that suits you exactly. And (B.) We, its makers, will become quite famous. We like to think of our forthcoming fame as a sort of marksmanship award. would have had 10,000 in Little Rock. I'm satisfied." Most of the other Democrats apparently arc, too, and efforts at organizing similar meetings are under way in a half-dozen or more counties. "This is not going to be an easy thing," Matthews said. "It will be a long, slow, brick-by- brick process. But the Demo cratic party let the Republicans get better organized and it has been obvious in the last two elections." BORROWS FROM GOP Those were the two that gave Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller his two terms in office. The Democratic party strategy is straight from the GOP practice. Matthews acknowl edges, as he did last December in a report to the Democratic State Committee. In t h a t report he said the GOP had the advantages o! field men who recruited anc continued to encourage volunteers on the local level, attracted young people and housewives, maintained the supporl of longtime Republicans and got added support from new ones, all of which made up the "Republican formula for victory." "The Democratic party, a: has been proven by recent elections, is sadly unprepared to meet this challenge," he said in that report. PROPOSED BUDGET Now Matthews has proposed a state party operations budget of more than $100,000 a year to provide for eight "field men," to do for the Democratic party what the GOP field men have done for the Republican party. Ironically, the GOP field staff has been cut back to two, although its budget for this year still is set at $130.000. Matthews' plan also calls for a paid party executive secretary, a position t h a t was. for a 'hilc, abolished last year when it was held by J. P. "Sonny" Lybrand. There were reports that leading Democrats merely wanted to gel Lybrand out of the party's executive structure, so they "abolished the job; now that he is gone they are recreating it. POSITION NEEDED "We need the position, and that's clear after some re-evaluation." Matthews said. When asked if Lybrand would get the job again, the party c h a i r m a n said. "He hasn't applied for it." It was no coincidence that young people were urged to get into the Democratic party organization at tlic county level by several speech-makers last weekend, Matthews said. Matthews delivered the message to youth at a Young Democrats Club meeting at Stntc College of Arkansas in Cnmvny Friday night; Ted Boswcll, who ran third in last summer's Democratic gubernatorial primary, said something along thos linrs in Malvern. and the samp topic came up at the r a l l y in Clinton. YOUNG PKOPI.K "We're making a very rlefi nite special effort to bring in young people," Matthews saiil. "Many county committees have people on them who never hiivc been active though they've served for years and years. They're cither Incapable or «n- To Run For Office NEW YORK (AP) -- Author Norman Mailer says he is going to run for mayor--provided people take him seriously and he can find support. Mailer said Wednesday he would make his final decision in a b o u t 10 days, after touring metropolitan area college cam' puses. willing to achieve the type of organization and image we're going to have to have." The regional rallies will be continued with a view toward continuing to encourage the young, but also to encourage ,he county committees to "be functional all year long," he said. "In the past, the Democratic county committees didn't see .he voters until election time, but over the years the Repub- icans have been busy and now they've proselytized a whole generation away from our par 4-H Fun Night Has 39 Entries There were 39 entries in the Washington County 4-H Share he Fun Night held at Farming- on School Tuesday night.
