Yet ED MCDONALD is the ONLY candidate for Governor who.has recognized the interests of Eastern Arkansas people by pledging imme- diaic and 'constructive', attention to Flood Control.

The State of Louisiana has .long been the recipient of splendid contributions from . llio iVUioim QovsH-unienl toward'Us in lood coiitro!.
